This week we’re celebrating intimate weddings with destination elopements, cozy city hall vows, and private romantic ceremonies. Today we have a backyard wedding of two neighbors-turned-lovers. There were Shrinky Dinks, Cajun and Filipino food, a garaged covered in burlap, and tons of crafty details.
These two are artsy and it shows. This pair crafted themselves into a tizzy, but the result were some gorgeous details. Even the portable toilets were pretty! But add in a bouquet toss/wire snafu, a groomsgirl who matches the groomsmen, and the bride’s awesome green dress, and there’s way more to see than just the decor.
After a serious illness threatens this wedding, the pair comes out swinging with a gorgeous vineyard venue (with matching wine barrel cake!), a bride and bridesmaid color swap, and even a papier-mache pig card box. Plus, you’ll love the sweet little hand-crafted hearts filled with facts about their relationship.
This wedding takes its direction from a desire to leave a small carbon footprint and to locally-source as much as possible. Having it in the state’s first Platinum LEED-certified building was definitely apropos. The homemade hula hoops, butternut squash soup, and folk music were icing on this Star Trek-topped cake.
A little bit of vintage style, a whiskey box ceremony, a Princess Bride homage, and a lot of DIY make for an eclectic and heartfelt outdoor celebration. Plus they had an after party at a favorite bar for major dancing and carrying on. The matching <3 tattoos just seal the awesomeness.
There are a lot of things to love about this wedding like the bride’s silver and blue dress, the groom’s monocle and cane, and the surprising sake ceremony. But frankly, I’m in it for the doughnut cake and glow sticks. There is definitely something for everyone at this creative shindig.
