We first met at the Warped Tour — we’re both musicians and huge fans of pop-punk. So of course we decided to have an emo wedding on a music festival cruise put on by the band Coheed & Cambria!
Keith and Andrew got married during a cruise on Lake Washington, near Seattle. They had cake, dancing — and great photos by Tom Ellis Photography.
We got married in the same room in the same building (Moat Room, Harrow Registry Office) as my parents, with the same registered home address. The only difference: the two weddings were 37 years apart! The wedding reception was held on the largest boat on the River Thames, the Dixie Queen, that included the opening of Tower Bridge. We also had a nine-tier cake!
My wife and I originally met through our university's Metal Club, so it was only natural that we have a metal-themed wedding to celebrate the style of music that brought us together. The venue was the bottom floor of a yacht that does lunch/dinner cruises, which we chose to both reflect our desire to have both a classy affair and a mark our viking voyage in life as wife and wife.
Nicole and Santiago chartered the USS Potomac (Roosevelt’s former White House boat) for their lovely San Francisco Bay wedding. A live brass band kept everyone dancing, even while rain poured down. Thankfully rain = rainbows! When you hear the reason for the boat wedding, your eyes may start leaking.
