Clare and Sirchauncey waited thirteen months to finally find themselves getting married in a gorgeous setting in Snoqualmie, WA. Their Snoqualmie Falls elopement happened only after months and months of planning with Clare living in Australia and Sirchauncey living in the States. They had waited for the Visa to make it official and finally it did. And it was breathtaking.
It was worth the wait and now we get to see it…
Brenna and Alexander had a gorgeous fantasy and Game of Thrones-inspired wedding with extra inspiration from their military travels, especially to China. The New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden was the background for their ceremony where Alexander recited a poem he’d wrote especially for Brenna.
You could see the influence of things they love: traveling adventures, Game of Thrones, the color purple, and their two dogs/ring bearers (in bow ties!).
The groom was set to be deployed, so he proposed less than three weeks before the ceremony. Queue the nerdy, Star Wars and Game of Thrones quick wedding! On a beautiful veranda by a pond, the cosplaying pair had a nerdy military pre-deployment wedding to thrill everyone.
Just wait until you see the Disney’s Up-themed details in this super-close-to-Disney wedding. Sky + balloons cake, grape soda boutonnieres, an Adventure Book, and lots of Disney-related songs, decor, and accessories make this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. You’ll also learn a pretty neat trick on having a Disney wedding without actually having to contract with Disney.
My fellow Army Wives, Echo and Kilo (who helped write this post) and I, are political progressives, feminists, and romantically involved with soldiers in the US Army. It’s a crazy effing life. One might even say round pegs for the square hole of the US Armed Forces. We are absolutely committed to telling it like it is as professional women with complicated sexualities, careers, aspirations, non-traditional religious affiliations, and cultural clashes with the military… as well as the love, support, and strength we draw from our significant others, ourselves, and our close and ever evolving friendships. And yeah, we had a couple o’ gaps in our zeitgeist that we hope we can help you with.
We’re falling into the so-excited-it’s-almost-fall trap hardcore. But that’s okay: trap us in your cool embrace and crunchy leaves, fall! Here’s a little horror and zombies pre-Halloween preview to whet your appetite for the season. The dessert bar alone is to die for… think anatomical hearts, zombie mousse graves, and a cake with a giant bloody bite out of it. It’s ghoulishly delicious!
