Christmas elopements are all snow, pine cones, and Santa Claus, right? Think again! This couple had an alternative twist to their Christmas elopement with spooky goth details and the most unique wedding venue.
We wanted to have a fun party and celebrate us, so we did what we wanted. We fell in love over beer, so that ended up being our inspiration. We had our first look at the bar where we had our first date and a pre-ceremony photo shoot at the beer & wine shop I worked at when we met. I did not want to wear white, so I wore a beautiful navy dress with beading and a navy veil to match.
Ben proposed to Alyssa with a stunning vintage ring nestled inside a Pokeball that said “I choose you!” So it made total sense that these adorable nerdy birds wanted to snag some engagement photos decked out in their nerdy gear — specifically their Star Wars Jerseys.
May the Fourth is only two days away so this adorable couple will surely usher us into the Tatooine spirit. But not back to Jakku! May the force be with them, always.
We love attending Renaissance Faires and have always wanted nice Renaissance costumes, so we decided to have a themed wedding. Our wedding was Renaissance-inspired and we encouraged guests to dress on theme as well. Nearly everyone showed up in costume to have a merry time. We even got to reuse our Renaissance outfits the next weekend while attending a Renaissance festival.
I’m a witch, my husband is not. He knows now after being with me this long that I care a great deal about ritual, intention, and love. So, we set out to do everything by hand. We braided our own handfasting rope, we decorated our broom together, we brewed mead together, we painted and created our whole twelve (12!) invitations together. During anything we did, we lit a red candle, and we would hush to each other about love. We would declare our intent.
Daniel and Zoe live in NYC, but their wedding took place in Daniel’s home state, in Monroe, North Carolina. The couple enjoys both illustration and Brooklyn life, so you’ll see bits of both throughout the details of their colorful farm wedding. From the Simpsons details to the donut table to the colorful flower and herb centerpieces, everything was a nod to Daniel and Zoe’s homage to color, style, and serious emotion.
Get your hankies out for the ceremony, folks!
