I absolutely love when readers share their uniquely creative weddings with me – and this might be one of the most creative I’ve seen. It just goes to show you that you can have an amazing wedding – all about the two of you – even if you are on a budget. A bit about their day from Golriz, Devon and I wanted every ounce of our wedding to burst with creativity, but we had a very tight budget. This was actually a blessing as it forced us to be really creative and think outside the box. It also meant we had fun adventures to pursue together like hunting for the ‘perfect’ couch on Craigslist!
One of my favorite parts of the process was building an art installation for our event space. Devon had always dreamed of creating an art installation with vintage televisions, umbrellas and bare light bulbs…so this was his chance! We hunted high and low for TVs that had big knobs and dials – the sales staff at the thrift stores must have thought we were mad! Devon figured out a way to connect all the bulbs to one switch and even installed a dimmer (yes, I’ve obviously married MacGyver). We stacked 10 vintage TVs and streamed a slideshow of pictures of ourselves with music. Hanging above the TVs were approximately 20 white umbrellas and bare globe bulbs. The guests loved taking their photos next to this installation.
And this video by Full Frame Cinema – I know I’ve said it before, but after watching this – and I know, it’s a bit long, but if you are thinking you don’t need a video of your wedding day, this will change your mind. I love that you can see how happy and full of love Golriz + Devon are. It’s so fun to watch your wedding day on your anniversary each year – ok, we’ve only had one anniversary so far, but that is our plan :)
Thanks so much Golriz + Devon for sharing your amazing day with us. Hopefully this will inspire you guys a bit to really make the day about the two of you and that it’s ok to think outside the box. If you want to see more photos from their day, be sure to check out their website. :)
