Monday’s Finding: Alternatively Fabulous

Happy Monday! I apologize for my absence last week. I had some health issues and was unable to post. But, I’m back and healthy again. Thanks to those who expressed their concern, it was greatly appreciated. Anyhoo, on with the blog!

Today’s Monday’s Finding is a subject near and dear to my heart, “alternative” weddings. I just love working with couples who want to express their aesthetic through their wedding and stay true to who they are when developing the theme of their wedding. I must confess, that I am an old goth at heart:

In addition to vintage, retro, and GLBT weddings, I also specialize in “alternative” weddings. I love going outside the traditional box and helping my couples realize their version of a dream wedding. It’s my hope that mainstream media will begin to cover these beautiful and unique weddings. To get your punk, goth, or dark wedding inspiration, I’ve put together a list of my favorite alternative blogs and a few boards with sources for amazing alternative wedding garb.
