The ’80s and homebrew meet at this Aussie-American rustic wedding

’80s rock, a rad barn venue, TONS of DIYed details, and so much homebrew. It’s a gorgeously wild ride of a wedding and we’re here to share it. Don’t miss the travel signs, the bride’s lace dress, the rustic decor, the “mad love” ring book, and the awesomely mismatched champagne-colored dressed wedding party.

Aleah & Zach’s music meets bibliophile wedding in the forest

This pair was torn between lobster and steak and a small courthouse elopement, so they compromised with a heavily DIYed and super adorable cottage in the forest backyard-style wedding. Get ready for eclectic (and budget-friendly!) centerpieces, a sweet first look, and a couple of super cute mishaps not to be missed.

Emmy & Ian’s public library dance party wedding

Little fox details, succulents, and cupcakes make this wedding sweet as sugar. But the groom’s ceremony tears and the wedding party’s amazing speeches gave it just the right amount of awesome. Don’t miss the gorgeous library venue in Madison, their favorite band, and the surprise fireworks display.

Our “stars and moon” short agnostic wedding ceremony script

I wrote this ceremony script with the help of Offbeat Bride, and I am really happy with the results. My very non-religious, scientific-minded fiancé is very happy with it as well. My mom, who has always told me that we are made of star dust, is absolutely in love with the Carl Sagan reading we selected for her. I am really excited about the music sections, and to share my ceremony with you…

Sarah & Mat’s offbeat lite Unitarian art museum wedding

We must tease this… it can’t be helped. Boob body shots with wine. Oh, and there’s also awesome pop culture table names, sweet little vows, the groom’s daring and snazzy white tux, and a fabulous art museum backdrop. Plus, you’ll want to know how this couple utilized their “music bouncers” to get the job done.

Why my wedding WON’T be just a party where we happen to get married

I’ve been spending some time looking at other atheist or agnostics weddings, and it’s been amazing helpful to see what thoughts everyone has on an atheist or civil ceremony. It’s led me to the conclusion that I am not a “party where we happen to get married” bride.
