Mr and Mrs Cooper 316

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Megan and George’s elopement that took place in Cornwall with only two friends and photographer Jamie Webb of Webb Family Photography to witness. Because of the location, Jamie captured some gorgeous shots of them both and their friends enjoying their after ceremony picnic.

We both met when we were in school together starting a new class. George thought I was cute and stabbed a pencil into my leg to get my attention! Well, I guess it worked, because 5 years later we’re married!

The whole day  was pretty much DIY! We washed our car because we packed everyone into it to drive down, we also made sausage rolls for the picnic we had, the presents from our guests were homemade too! It was a really casual day which really suited us, but the sausage rolls were definitely the highlight.

A Nerdy Art Museum Wedding Filled With Lego – Rebecca & Nic

73

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you tattooed bride Rebbeca and husband Nic’s wedding that took place at the Figge Art Museum in Iowa. 

One of the highlights of the day was when Rebecca and  Nic decided that they were going to exchange gifts at the Figge’s newest exhibit that was on display, The Art of Architecture: LEGO Sculptures by Adam Reed Tucker. They were going to do it without actually seeing each other. They decided to do it at the last minute, initially they weren’t planning on seeing each other, and their photographer Ford Photography loved the idea! It was a way to connect without spoiling seeing each other. When initially planning the wedding at the museum, they planned on incorporating Legos into it and Rebecca even bought Nic cufflinks of Emmet from “The Lego Movie” long before they even discovered this exhibit was coming.

Nic and I met through a mutual friend of ours who was attending chiropractic college with me. He was living in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and I was living in Davenport, Iowa. She introduced us, and we began texting shortly after. I wasn’t exactly sold on jumping into the dating scene yet because I had just gone through a breakup, but agreed to meet up anyway. Nic, along with a group of my friends met up at a local brewery downtown Davenport. We were friends for about 4 months before we actually decided to start dating, and I’m so glad we took our time.

When we eventually started dating, we dated for 10 months before we were engaged. We were engaged for 17 months. For about 21 of those months we lived 2 hours apart from each other, only seeing each other on the weekends. Nic finally moved to Davenport to be with me last October. We were married months after that. Nic claims that the reason why I agreed to end up dating him was because he made me the best chocolate cake in the world when we were still just friends.. (That might play a small role in it!)

When we were planning the wedding I wanted it to be low stress, which represented us the most. We didn’t pick a “theme” because we felt like their were so many tiny elements that represented us, and I didn’t want to limit myself. I felt like if I could include small nerdy things that represented who we were, people would understand it. We included small touches like our cake topper of a Lego wedding couple, our programs, and instead of cake we opted for cupcakes from Nic’s favorite place, Scratch Cupcakery from his hometown. And even included mad-libs for the guests to do at their tables. We just felt these small touches represented us in a large way.

5 Minimal Back Of Neck Tattoos To Shine On Your Wedding Day

A woman’s wedding day is among the most important days of her life and the one on which she wants to truly stand out and look her best. Many tattooed brides go to great lengths to cover up or hide their tattoos. This can significantly limit the choice of wedding dresses for tattooed brides. Some brides choose, however, to flaunt their body art proudly on their wedding day. Even better, independent, free-spirited brides choose to get small meaningful tattoos to commemorate this momentous occasion.

As many brides choose to wear their hair in an elaborate style keeping it up and off their necks, graphic design tattoos for the back of the neck are a subtle and sophisticated way to show their style. Here are some of the best minimal tattoos for back of neck tattoo ideas to complement, rather than compete with, a gorgeous gown. Although tattoo studios have a variety of styles to choose from, it’s important for brides to choose small meaningful tattoos that represent their unique personalities.

Anchor

The simplicity of graphic design tattoos allows them to represent many things. The anchor is a symbol of travel and adventure that can illustrate the beginning of a couple’s journey together. By getting married, a couple is choosing to follow a path together, but because it can sometimes be a bumpy ride, the anchor can also show a couple’s commitment to be there for each other. An anchor tattoo is a perfect symbol of the promise to be each other’s anchor in stormy times.

Snowflakes are beautifully delicate and each one is unlike any other. Of the many back of neck tattoo ideas, this is one of the easiest to make truly one-of- a-kind representing the couple’s unique relationship and love for each other. A snowflake tattoo shows the world that the bride has found in her groom that one special person that is her perfect match.  Continue reading
