In Offbeat Bride, I talk about the concept of having two weddings — this couple took that concept to the extreme! Opposites really do attract — and get married.
The offbeat bride: Amber, Cosmetologist
My offbeat groom: Scott, Construction worker
Location & date of wedding: Two locations in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2006: a friend's home on The 4th of July, and in a park for Beltane with a maypole.
Our biggest challenge: Wondering if all the American flags would clash in the pictures was my fear. My husband to be did not know that I had such an extravagant wedding dress. He thought that it would just be white. Boy did he get an eyeful when I came down the stairway of my friend's home!
My favorite moment: Being wrapped in the maypole at the Handfasting — and my soon-to-be husband's eyes when he saw me coming down the stairs on the 4th of July!
My offbeat advice: Disregard the negative comments that your family may make and do what you want!
Enough talk — show me the wedding porn:
