HAPPY NEW YEAR! Who got engaged over the winter break? I’d love to hear your stories and see you beautiful rings.. Make sure you go and share them over on the Marry Me Ink Facebook page!
We met each other at a hockey game. My roommate (Chelsea) at the time had tickets to go see the LA Kings play and her date fell through at the last minute so I decided to join her. She befriended my future husband in line while ordering beer and the rest was history, and ironically we both were wearing long sleeves the whole night and didn’t know until we became Instagram “friends” the next day how tattooed we both really were.
The whole wedding was pretty much DIY. I didn’t want a wedding planner – I wanted it to be my own and even if things didn’t turn out perfect I was okay with that because it was something that I created with love and from my heart. I knew I wanted it to be 20’s themed with a touch of that Gatsby glamorous feel so I really stuck to that idea, almost everything was hand made or customized. Every single detail was thought of, almost like putting a puzzle together, every piece just fit so it was really neat seeing that vision come to life.
Everything on the day represented us as a couple – the old fashioned feel, the hotel, the city, the decor, the outfits… even the speciality cocktails being served.
Being around the people we love was the highlight of our wedding day. And the Tater Tots!
As for choosing my wedding dress, all I knew is I didn’t want to hide my tattoos and whatever dress I chose I would want it to compliment my tattoos and that classic vintage style I was going for. We have matching tattoos that are our favourite drink – A Michelada!
The best way to describe our wedding day would be that it was the BEST party we’d ever been to! Our advice to other couples would be to breathe.. Remember why you are doing this in the first place and have a good time. No idea is too wild -It’s your day to make your dreams come true!
