5 incredible wedding ideas for the alternative bride

Boho Bride 

Alternative wedding inspiration from Bergreen Photography showcases two different interpretations of Stevie Nicks’ song, Leather and Lace. Julia from l’Relyea Events developed a design incorporating leather, lace and the 1970s bohemian vibe the song embraces. 

Circus Chic 

The theme of this breathtaking styled wedding shoot from Custom by Nicole Photography is a dramatic and romantic interpretation of an old world circus! Instead of exploring the playful side of the circus theme, the team of vendors wanted to provide inspiration to brides looking for a sophisticated wedding that’s a little different than the norm.

Pop Up Wedding 

Lindsey and Nate are from Huntsville, and they decided to elope in Chicago. To avoid the stress of planning a more traditional wedding, they opted to have a pop up wedding with their closest family and friends! Their ceremony was in the public gardens of the Art Institute of Chicago, officiated by one of Lindsey’s friends. Elizabeth Nord Photography captured their sweet, intimate elopement!

Artfully Amazing 

Andrea and Mike’s DIY summer wedding was filled with incredible details like giant round balloons with glimmering tassels, gold glittery table numbers, beautiful, vibrant flowers, and lovely watercolor signage! The venue only added to the charm of their celebration – a multipurpose cultural arts center in Chicago with over 250,000 square feet of curated hallways, rooftops and coves featuring emerging and established artistic talent from the city and worldwide. Laura Witherow Photography captured their day!

All Around The World 

Megan and Mike brought their love of travel and their devotion to their families together to create a memorable wedding day full of vintage travel-themed details and personal family touches. Their incredibly special day was beautifully captured by Marissa Moss Photography!

Idyllic Canyon 

With a simple arbor, glimmering sunlight, gold-accented florals, and the beauty of nature as their backdrop, the couple found their ideal setting in a place of simple and elegant rustic beauty. Nhiya Kaye Photography captured these beautiful moments!

Rock And Roll 

What originally started out as a rockabilly inspiration shoot evolved into an edgy, dark rock and roll theme designed by Ivory & Beau and captured by Rach Lea Photography.
