Relaxed, DIY Midsummer Night’s Dream Woodland Wedding

Inspired by the people and places they love, Ella and Ben chose a woodland glade to say their vows, surrounded by their friends and family. Ella explained, “We wanted to make everyone feel they were part of something special, exclusive, intimate and family orientated.”

Planning to marry in 2020, their plans were derailed and changed many times. Ella told us “I’ve learned that you cannot control every little thing and as long as you have good music, speeches and enough food and drink for everyone – nothing else really matters. Oh and that a global pandemic can happen at anytime so be prepared adapt your plans!”

Intimate DIY Backyard Wedding with Mexican Piñata

Scaling back their large Summer Camp themed wedding due to Covid, Jasmine and Vicente stuck with an outdoor vibe, holding their day instead on an acre of land on Mount Sequoyah in Arkansas. With wild trees and natural landscape, the couple got that magical forest feel that they wanted.

Meeting online, Jasmine was the first and last person Vicente messaged. Together for over five years, the couple wanted their ceremony to focus on the importance of maintaining their individuality, even as a devoted married couple. Jasmine told us, “There were a few traditions we broke. I walked myself down the ‘aisle’, and our ceremony included smoke cleansing, a wine-sharing ceremony, an exchange of vows we wrote together, the ring exchange, handfasting, and, finally, the breaking of glass.”

Enchanted Forest Wolf Themed Wedding

Ookami and Tyler had a big budget, $100,000, and they went ALL OUT on their enchanted forest theme, even so far as constructing their own enchanted forest inside their venue with the help of the incredible GreenSinner team. The bride grew up working with exotic animals and in conservation, one of which were wolves. Her first name means wolf and is an animal trainer with focus in wolf/wolf-dog/dog and general canine education… So the wolf inspired addition to their theme was just perfect for them.

The bride helped custom designed her own outfit with Arlette’s Custom Bridal for the dress, and Amy Bakenkoya for her one-of-a-kind mask. “Everything about our wedding was custom designed, unique and brought to life by all parties involved”, Ookami told us. “It really brought you into a different world.”

Rustic, Celtic Inspired Italian Woodland Wedding

For their May wedding day, highschool sweethearts Lorenzo and Erica wanted to celebrate their love in nature, surrounded by their closest friends and family. “In Italy, there really isn’t much outside of the norm for weddings,” Erica told us. “Even if they’re not religious, most people get married in a church for traditions’ sake, which didn’t suit us at all.”

Their wedding theme was very much inspired by Celtic traditions instead of religious ones. From celebrating everything in nature to hand fasting, jumping the broom and drinking hydromel from a shared chalice, the couple based their choices on keeping everything as simple as possible, but with an eye to celebrating the beautiful, too. They paired blue, bordeaux and blush for an ethereal colour palette and used apples as a symbol throughout – writing Norse Gods’ names on them for table names and choosing crockery with apple motifs.

Adventurous & Carefree Elopement in the Woods

When a wedding photographer gets married, you know the pictures are going to be a big consideration. Peyton, who married Cullen in June, decided she wanted the day primarily shot on film and so they hired Coral Dove Photography to do the honours. They eloped in the woods in Maryland with a $2000 budget. The bride wore vintage dress she found on Facebook marketplace for $75 and carried a bouquet made from flowers from her grandmother’s garden.

The day began with them getting ready together at home, they then drove to the mountains for their tiny elopement. They all hiked to a spot they picked out between two giant stones and had a hand fasting. They put together a terrarium using dirt from the ground to remember their ceremony followed by donuts and photos.
