Wedding: Tracy & Danielle

From Danielle: Tracy and I originally met about 4 years ago through mutual friend groups. At the time we both were seeing other people. We reconnected a year and a half ago and this time we were both single. It was our fast-thinking mutual friends who planned a group outing that allowed our friendship and relationship to grow. We went on a hike with our dogs on Memorial Day of 2015 and have been together ever since. January was not the original plan for our wedding, but November 8th changed everything. Our wedding was not an act of fear, but an act of love and solidarity. Being able to celebrate our love in front of family and friends was one of our favorite parts of the day. The day was so laid back and drama free that we would both do it all over again. Tracy and I planned a wedding in 52 days on a $1,500 budget. Our advice: do what makes you happy. We omitted being walked down the aisle, father/daughter dances, unity symbols, traditional ceremony scripts, etc., and our day was amazing and filled with so much love and joy.

Wedding: Ivy & Courtney

From the brides: We met while working for our college newspaper almost eight years ago. We’ve moved through cities and careers together, and now Ivy works for a nonprofit and Courtney works for the state House of Representatives. We got married on the evening of December 31st in our backyard because we thought 2016 needed something nice in it!*

Gallery: Superb Succulents

I (Ashley) am a proud owner of a small jade plant appropriately (and not very creatively) named Little Plant. As Little Plant is probably the only thing I’ve successfully grown, I am extremely fond of it… and so when I see a wedding that features succulents, I’m always extra excited.

Succulents can be a funky alternative to traditional bouquets, add flair to a cake, and adorably point guests to their seats. Check out how these couples integrated their own little plants into their ceremonies!

Wedding: Shannae & Tracey

From Shannae and Tracey: The couple met online in the summer of 2014. Shannae lived in Gilbert, Arizona, and Tracey lived in Yorkshire, England. They began dating with 5,100 miles between them, traveling back and forth as often as possible. Tracey asked Shannae to marry her on December 2, 2015, and Shannae proposed to Tracey on December 22, 2015. The couple applied for a K-1 visa for Tracey to move to America. On April 21, 2016, Tracey had her interview in London for her visa and was approved to move to the USA. Shannae and Tracey were married on May 28, 2016. The wedding was a small family affair.

The couple were married in the backyard of Shannae’s family home. Her brother, Mark, officiated the ceremony. During the ceremony, siblings were asked to read letters that Shannae and Tracey had sent each other. Letters from several family members from England, who could not be in attendance, were also read during the ceremony.

All of the decorations were made by the brides and family members. The bunting was sewn by Grandma Jean and the cake topper was created by Auntie Lynda. Vintage maps, from America and the UK, were turned into flowers and windmills. A globe was used instead of a guest book. A family friend, Julie, took the photos for the couple. The couple plans to hold a reception in the UK in the summer of 2017 to celebrate with their English family.

Wedding: Emily & Molly

From Emily and Molly: We met in Portland, Oregon over 8 years ago on Friday the 13th and the rest is history… with a lot of traveling, bicycle rides, rain storms, late night cocktails, queer dance parties, cats, cooking, movies, and more exploration in between! We moved to San Diego a few years ago to be closer to Molly’s family, the sunshine and the ocean. When we initially talked about getting married we just wanted one big party to bring all of our friends and families together for a night of good cocktails and dancing. A few days before our engagement party, we decided to surprise everyone and get married at the engagement!! It was such a lovely evening with a ton of laughs, tears, and hugs. We are so happy and lucky to have such incredible people in our lives. Check out mollyheartsemily.com for more of our story and pictures from the wedding. XO.
