Hooray! You’ve been invited to a pagan wedding! We’re so excited for you. That said, depending on your background or your beliefs, you might feel a little confused. What’s in store? Why is everyone standing in a circle? Are we talking about gods?

Megan and Nick planned an ultra gorgeous pagan meets vegan wedding, most of which was completely DIYed.

As the artist and owner of a candle and witchcraft supply store, Lily had a specific vision for her and Joe’s October wedding which included some Pagan elements. When her florist went out of business just before the wedding, Lily decided to do all her own decor.
