This wedding is all about learning experiences: you don’t need fancy “yay” flags when simple ones bring as much fun, dads are sometimes more mushy-gushy than they let on (see the flashing baby photos for proof!), and sometimes a daytime wedding with fabulous food (drooool potatoes) is totally the way to go. Plus: learn what the hell a “hug line” is and how you can get one, too!
You may recognize this pair from Alexa’s Nigerian engagement ceremony bridentity crisis, and we just had to see how it all turned out. It’s a two-ceremony mega-mash of Nigerian and American culture including handmade geles (Nigerian head wraps), geeky details, a sweet candle ceremony, and some flubbed vows that are too funny to miss.
We must tease this… it can’t be helped. Boob body shots with wine. Oh, and there’s also awesome pop culture table names, sweet little vows, the groom’s daring and snazzy white tux, and a fabulous art museum backdrop. Plus, you’ll want to know how this couple utilized their “music bouncers” to get the job done.
Back in August, [vendor-heart link="http://vendors.offbeatwed.com/listing/jaylee-photography"]Jaylee Photography[/vendor-heart] offered a free wedding to Offbeat Bride readers, and Naomi and Erin were the winners! The Washington-based photographers flew out to Nebraska to attend the church ceremony and art gallery reception.
This wedding explodes with DIY details: a handmade dress and shrug, self-assembled bouquets and centerpieces, jewelry, hairpieces, flask garters, photo booth props, and barefoot sandals(!). The sandals were the perfect shoe solution for a beach ceremony. The handfasting, adorable “ring bear,” and gorgeous setting round out a fabulous wedding day.
On the fourth day of elopement week, Meghann & Josh will take us to a faraway land called Disneyland. Meghann & Josh are Disneyland annual pass holders so they decided to have a, totally not-approved-by-Disney, quickie civil ceremony inside the park. The best part when Alice and the Mad Hatter joined mid-ceremony as their Best Man and Maid of Honor. -Coco
