Bohemian, BBQ and Bodacious... A Deliciously Alternative British Columbian Wedding

Walter_Tammark_JelgerampTanjaPhotography_AlliMikk0046jelgertanjaphotographers_low.jpg

Imagine a wedding that was all your own. A wedding in which you chose exactly what you wanted and then built the day around those very important details. Bridey, I'd like you to meet Alli + Mikk. This B+G are a complete inspiration to brides everywhere simply because that is exactly what they did. They chose what was important to them and then constructed their wedding day around those particulars. It's so simple, yet so difficult to achieve usually due to the noise and bullshit that surrounds your wedding planning. But, A+M? They rocked it! And, I'm seriously in love with them.

Not to mention that this is the first time I've shared a pic of the bride nibbling the groom's ear on Bitchless Bride! Seriously, how is that possible?! Right?! But, beyond the ear nibbles, I wholeheartedly enjoyed this wedding submission because I felt like I was there. I swear I could taste the BBQ, feel the texture of the kickass dress and play the games (and drink the booze during the two hour cocktail hour!!). Bridey, I hope that you take piles and piles of inspiration away with this post, but more than anything else, I hope you take away that it's okay to do your wedding your own way.

This dress is EVERYTHING! I mean... The black mixed with the texture of the skirt... I'm officially in wedding dress heaven! Now, look down for a close up.

OMFG. Look how grandiose this structure is! Side note? It was hand built by the community and it belongs to the Estonian society.

Can we talk about how amazing the décor is? And, bridey, look closely. It's mostly plastic and it's fucking fantastic!
