Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you tattooed bride Alex and husband Ariel’s wedding celebrations. They decided to have their amazing reception at Neot Kedumim Nature Reserve ten days after their official ceremony where the awesome Gamba Photographers caught everything beautifully – including their adorable dogs! Bride Alex also purchased her gorgeous dress from Marry Me Ink’s favourite online fashion store ModCloth.
Ariel and I met through mutual friends, we had been talking on the phone for a while and went on a first date to a bar in 2010, got drunk and woke up the next morning. We have been together ever since.
The clothes we chose to wear represented us as a couple – the wedding dresses were both under $100, and the groom’s suit is all vintage pieces that we collected at the Kensington Market at Toronto. Everything is unique and simple, not too flashy and over the top just clean and simple.
I wanted my headpiece to match the tattoos and to be mainly blue and pink. I was sure that was going to finish my rib-back tattoo so I ordered a dress with an open back but I didn’t had the chance to get it done and you can see the outlines on my back. I’m not too happy with that and if I had known then, I would have picked a different dress for sure.
Our favourite part of our wedding was getting ready together at home with our family and dogs. This helped us to not rush and just enjoy the day at our own pace. We had already been married for a few days so it was not so nerve wrecking.
Less is more – There is no need to spend a lot of money to have the best day!
How gorgeous are Alex and Ariel’s wedding celebrations? I love that they got ready with their dogs beforehand and that they managed to stick with a budget too! Thank you to them both and to Gamba Photographers for sharing their wedding with Marry Me Ink today.
