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!*

From the brides: After a crazy year of being hounded and ultimately outed by our conservative university (where we met!), we finally decided to show the world that love truly does win. Sheila had to go back to Canada for the summer due to immigration issues, but before she left, she proposed to Katie by a trickling stream with an opal ring from Etsy. The plan was to be married in August upon Sheila’s return to the States, and when Katie came up to Canada to visit, she surprised Sheila with the most tenderhearted, gorgeous, sandy-beach, ocean-side proposal. We both finally had our special rings and were officially, 100% engaged.
As mature college students, our budget was tight, but our wedding turned out simplistically beautiful. Our church family rallied around us, and friends and a little bit of family from far and wide came to support us and surround us with love on our special day. We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter group of people around us and had so much fun dressing up in colors while our bridesmaids wore white. We just don’t do things by the book.
Looking back, all we can see is the joy, even in the midst of the family chaos around us and the challenges we have and will face. We love each other more than ever and are so excited to spread that love.

Nichole & Liz may win the award for quickest submission: they got married this past weekend in New York City, and had sent us their photos within two days!
From Nichole: My wife and I had a Periscope wedding at City Hall. We had everything we wanted on a super shoestring budget– just under $800– and here’s how we did it: we decided to nix the big venue, catering, and entertainment, which can cost upward of $10k, and went with a magical union at city hall with just a few close friends and family members as our witnesses. Then we discovered the Periscope app! Just days before the event we invited all our friends and family near and far to join us in the live stream of our ceremony.
We had 4 bridesmaids who all wore something yellow (my favorite color), a lacy white dress I already owned, a white collared shirt, slacks, vest and shoes for Liz, and City Hall as our backdrop. My sister narrated the whole shindig, and 40 guests tuned in and commented and snapped photos the whole way through. Our biggest costs were the rings engraved with “pari passu” totalling $400, Liz’s outfit at $150, and the celebratory dim sum meal and drinks in nearby chinatown with the bridal party at $150, along with the small cost of marriage license and registry. For just under $800 total, it was intimate and fun and filled with so much love. Everyone we wanted to be there was there and we didn’t have to pay by the head– or for a photographer/videographer to capture the day.
