Winter weddings are WAY underrated, in our opinion, and this queer winter garden wedding is all the proof we need. By choosing a plant nursery as their venue, Erin and Annie were able to achieve a natural, outdoorsy vibe many people might think isn’t possible for a wintertime ceremony, but these photos from Events by Merida prove them all wrong!
If we were going to do the damn thing, it needed to be unique to us and our life and not put us into debt as the first act of our marriage! It was also important to us that despite our straight-passing relationship, our queer identity and the community we have made for ourselves was present in the day.
We wanted to be really intentional about how we approached wedding traditions. We kept what we wanted, and left what we didn’t! For instance: as a masculine woman, Ester wanted to experience some of the groom-ish parts of wedding traditions, like seeing her future wife come down the aisle. Also, since neither of us like cake, we had wedding popsicles and wedding churros instead!
Cameron and Joel’s day was a magical, whimsical celebration of their love in a botanical garden, with tarot readings, cats, colorful inclusivity, and big beautiful nerdy love: their ring boxes were a Poké Ball and a d20!
If you think winter weddings are all about snow and pinecones, wait until you see this winter Las Vegas Wedding, with a red theme and a Chotronette dress!
Savanah and Reid’s Tacoma wedding day vibe was super chill and laid back. Savanah wore a gorgeous white and dusty blue dress while Reid looked amazing in a floral shirt and suit. There were a lot of personal touches throughout, DIY, as well as eco-conscious elements.
Just wait until you see the cake which had edible chocolate hedgehogs!
