We think the best way to describe the proceedings is as a three-day wedding festival – vibrant, cheery, and outdoors! They didn’t realize they had a theme until after sharing what they were wearing themselves on the day and someone described it as “Disco Pride” and people seemed to run with that which was great!
These two totally embraced some awesome faves from Offbeat Bride: muglies, one of our favorite dress designers, Converse, hand-knitted shawls, and handmade handfasting cords. They took some advice to take a breather during the ceremony and totally rocked the venue selection (hello, gorgeous!).
Craft beer and barbecue. A chic venue and a giant shark balloon. Bubble guns and dancing socks. These are a few of my favorite things. And they are all in this Los Angeles wedding, in addition to a sweet story about the bride’s ring and a cool alternative to a champagne toast!
Let me just lay this right here: a tentacle aisle, tentacle bouquets, a pineapple print dress, fold-out fan programs, horror movie centerpieces, and a flesh-eating martian owlopus. You read that right. Oh, and some sage advice meant for a pre-teen that totally applies to all of us. Let us know if you spot the MINGLO, too!
Let’s reminisce about being a kid with this summer camp wedding complete with crayons, popcorn favors, a “Hershey’s Kiss girl” instead of a flower girl, a camp out with a fire juggler, and an AMAZING pink ruffled corset gown (you may remember from here). Plus, get a load of the adorable matchy-match father and son kilts! My heart… I swoon! All that plus the sweetest groom-gets-teary first look ever.
Lots of kids + lots of games + lots of time to run around = lots of fun. That’s the theory of this wedding and it TOTALLY worked. Add in the gorgeous venue, two different ceremonies, and lots of DIY, and this community-oriented wedding wins the day. Even though the guest list spiked by 75, these two pulled it together with the generosity of friends (and even a fellow Tribesmaid!).
