Jordan and Conor had anautumnal woodland outdoor ceremony at The Dreys wedding venue in Kent. Once the ceremony was over, guests walked through the woods to an open field where a tent and rustic tin bar were all set up and ready for the party. There were pumpkins, smoke grenades, Disney memorabilia, and an Irish band, just to name a few of the things that Jordan and Conor included to make the day personal to them.
The ultimate wedding trifecta has been discovered: woods + Ring Pops + pizza. But maybe deep down we all knew that. And Danielle and Jared made it happen for them.
They started our day with a five-minute walk to Federal Hill where they paid homage to their love of Baltimore and where Danielle and Jared saw each other for the first time. After that is was on to King & Queen Seat in Rocks State Park for their mountain ceremony.
Robekkah and Christian were initially Scrabble partners who found love AND gaming fun. They had a DIYed forest fairy wedding in Northern Minnesota full of family involvement, a gorgeous purple and white gown, and a very special officiant.
Their photographer gave us such a sweet account of the day, that I couldn’t not share it…
We were going for if Wes Andersen threw an early ’00s high school dance in the forest. We wanted lots of nerdy pop culture touches, but nothing too heavy-handed. We were in the same nerdy friend group in high school and actually dated for two weeks before going out separate ways. I was married to someone else for a decade but when that ended we reconnected. We have all the same friends and even the same godkids, so our wedding was like a giant reunion.
While y’all know we love big, colorful, and wild wedding themes, we also totally love simple, pared down, and more romantic themes just as much. So with warmer weather looming and outdoor weddings taking center stage for spring and summer, I wanted to explore what nature themed wedding details and boho wedding details I could find that fit a more natural and organic aesthetic. Think lace, linen, floral embroidery, woods, kraft paper, eucalyptus, and colors pulled from nature.
The groom told us: “Neither of us are traditional so we decided our theme was going to be all about magic and fantasy combining my love of Dungeons & Dragons with her love of actual magic (runes, crystals, divination, astrology, etc.). It’s like an alchemy of interests.”
