Before you head out for your long 4 day 4th of July weekend (for most Americans anyway), we have a fun offbeat wedding to share with you, with the most interesting ceremony! To create an interesting ceremony, it starts with a creative couple that love to take "selfies"!
Photographer Ginger with Creative Event Studio explains:It's not often that we are hired by the groom, so Will will always stand out in our mind. Will is a video producer and the photography was extremely important to him as they were planning the wedding. Will & Leslie stand out because they march to the beat of their own drum, and this wedding was 'them' all the way.
The two of them completed many DIY projects including the stationary suite, centerpieces, touch screen photobooth, event signage, and perhaps the most unusual-an interactive ceremony. The two of them have a long history together. They have self-portraits from nearly every place they've visited or things they've done (including taking one at the ceremony!) that were included in a video they put together and produced. A friend of theirs performed the ceremony, but in large part the ceremony was self led by the video. On three screens at the front of the service guests were taken through a history of their relationship right up to them being announced as husband and wife. As soon as they had kissed and been announced a new timer started - for their marriage.
OK, let's get onto Leslie & William's Interactive Wedding, shall we? It's truly inspiring, and, well, AWESOME in every way! Brilliantly photographed by Creative Event Studio:
Even down to the high 5-ing cake topper, this wedding is full of personality! Have you ever seen an interactive ceremony or couples taking "selfies" at the altar before? I haven't either, but maybe now more people will! I truly love it when couples put themselves into their wedding. The outcome usually has people saying, "that was so them", as Ginger mentioned.
My favorite DIY is the invitation suite. It's so clever and fun with the font choices, layout and wording! I can imagine that as soon as the guests received their invitations, they smiled knowing it would be one heck of an event!
I love the simple centerpieces of delicate branches with paper birds hanging from them-so sweet, and simple to do.
The tribute table is really touching, by the way, especially with the personal effects of the individuals. It makes me wish I had paid more of a tribute to my own loved ones. Maybe this will inspire others to do something similar and carry that forward.
Our thanks to Creative Event Studio for this fun and unique wedding submission!
