Vintage Rockabilly Meets Back to the Future Inspired Wedding at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens

Are you ready for a little touch of wedding magic? Because Carrie and Bill wedding held at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is about to bring it! This has got to be one of Philly’s coolest and most unique venues, what an incredible spot to say “we do!” It is a non-profit organisation, folk art environment and gallery space that you can hire to get married in! So cool right?

The wedding itself had a vintage Rock n Roll theme with with rockabilly and tattoo culture plus punk vibes thrown in for good measure. The decorations at the reception included cassette tapes made into vases, lanyards as escort cards (VIP passes!) and vinyls as table markers.

“I have been enchanted with Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens for many years,” the bride began, “so when we decided to go for a centre city wedding I jumped at the chance to have our ceremony there. It held it’s own beauty and whimsy. As a quirky couple into into art and fantasy as well as alternative punk scene, it was a deal. We exchanged vows in a fashion that is us and Bill even quoted Doug Stanhope ‘Baby I love you so much I want to get the government involved.’ Everyone had a chuckle from that! We walked out to a lovely instrumental version of Ho Hey From the Lumineers. We had a bubble send off and record shaped hand fan programs. It was a truly a magical experience.”

Vintage, Bohemian Wedding with Succulents, Skulls and Taxidermy

Ryann and Michael always knew they wanted to have a bohemian, vintage wedding, so when it came to planning their big day, they already knew where to start. “I wanted the day to feel like we were in a magical world away from the city and our lives, and for our guests to look around and say ‘this is exactly like Michael and Ryann’” she explained.

To do this, they made sure they had loads of personal touches in their decor, including bringing props from their own home. “The bull skull behind the head table actually hangs in our living room,” Ryann continued. “We had our florist decorate it with flowers, and felt that using it in our decor would help personalise the space as ours.” They had a vintage globe for their guests to sign in lieu of a guestbook, which will then sit in their home as a memento.

Colourful & Creative Poolside Wedding in Palm Springs

Palm Springs, a desert city in southern California, is known for its hot springs, stylish hotels and gorgeous mid century modern architecture. For Bernadette and Andrew it also provided the perfect backdrop for their poolside ceremony meets intimate dinner party wedding.

“The great part about having your wedding in the wonderland that is Palm Springs is that the theme basically sets itself!”, began the bride. “We love the mid-century desert oasis aesthetic of the city and tried to leverage as much of that as we could. But really, because our wedding was intentionally kept very small (30 total people, including us), overall the theme was ‘intimate dinner party’. Since our wedding was Halloween weekend (we first kissed on Halloween, and Andrew proposed on Halloween!), our ‘rehearsal dinner’ was actually a giant Halloween costume party – I wore a giant inflatable banana costume and Andrew wore a wedding dress from Amazon – that he later jumped in the pool while wearing!”

Fashion-Forward Festival Wedding with an Alexander McQueen Inspired Dress

Let’s just start by talking about how OBSESSED I am with Hannah’s bridal outfit. Inspired by queen of frills Molly Goddard and king of style Alexander McQueen, her dress was made by her super talented friend Nadia Tahari. There was a running theme for Hannah and Sam’s wedding – to create something really relaxed and personal day which involved all of their family and friends. It’s safe to say they smashed it.

“It was a true celebration of not only our relationship, but of all our best friends and family,” Hannah explains. “We called upon the talents of our friends; from my dress, to our flowers, our band and the food, everyone had a part to play and it made the day really collaborative and unique.”

A Festive Barbershop Wedding

Rachel and Nick may have met on Tinder but their relationship was anything but a quick hook up! Both barbershop singers, the bride more or less trawled the app (and Facebook!) to find Nick when some friends told her they’d spotted him as they were swiping through! When they finally met they hit it off immediately and were married two years later, on December 28th.

“Our wedding was very relaxed”, the bride said. “We just wanted a big celebration with all of our friends with lots of music.” The day was held at The White Hart Inn, Moorwood Moor, and despite it being winter (and so dark by 3 o’ clock!) they opted to not get married until 5pm.

Romantic & Intimate Elopement on a Sierra Nevada Mountaintop

This wedding is exactly what you’d expect if two beautiful ski and snowboarding instructors met on the top of a mountain and fell in love. And that’s what happened! Germán and Vero met in a cable car on a trip up to the top of the mountain, and so years later, they decided to say their I dos at the very same spot. SWOON.

“After a while and many adventures together, distilling love and happiness without parallel, Vero declared her love to to me”, Germán told us. “And we promised that our wedding would be such a wonderful adventure, and we would unite together, and surrounded by the most important guest in our day… Sierra Nevada, at 3000 metres high, where it all began.”
