Our offbeat wedding at a glance:
We had a lowbrow galactic theme that was heavy on the glitter and tinsel.
Tell us about the ceremony:
We got ready for the event in an old Grand Rapids mansion we rented from Airbnb that was slightly decrepit with lots of charm. It had a perfect view of the city and we had a great photo shoot there.
My childhood friends created original music for our wedding ceremony (found here!).
The ceremony was short and sweet and officiated by one of our friends. We also got a temporary license to have an artist tattoo special flash art she created just for our wedding.

What was your most important lesson learned?
The biggest planning challenge was a wedding venue change. I sent out invites earlier enough though, so all I had to do was send out a flyer with the address change. I made sure to make the flyer obnoxiously bright so everyone would look at it!
