Who loves Vikings? I know we love watching the series when it’s on TV! Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you this awesome tattooed Viking wedding from Blossom and Bloom Photography.
Caleb and I met about 10 years ago in 2006. We were going to a concert with mutual friends and became instantly infatuated with one another. We were only friends at this time, and unfortunately I had to move to Oregon shortly there after. We spoke on and off through social media through the next 5 years, but eventually lost contact. In June of 2013, I was planning a visit to California to see my sister. Caleb had found me on social media, and again we became friends right where we left off. Aside from seeing my sister, when I went to CA, I spent most of my vacation with him. We spoke every single day after that, and within a few months, I moved back to California for good. Caleb took me on my first date the very next day after my plane landed. We were inseparable, and have remained so.
The whole Viking theme in it’s entirety represented us rather well! The small intimate wedding in a simple park, and reception by the beach is also representative. We like to keep it simple!
Almost everything was DIY. However, the wisteria wedding arch specifically was made by myself. It took several months to make, but it was the most fun project by far. Heather photographed it beautifully, and now we get to enjoy sitting under it in our garden.
Aside from having the most important people in our lives there, I’d have to say one of the biggest highlights for us was having Caleb’s father marry us. It meant more than he knows, and he did such a wonderful job.
Whether you have tattoos or not, make the wedding your own! Do not invite people you weren’t planning on inviting because family wants you to. Do not do the cliché or expected things just because they’re “tradition”. The reason we had such an amazing and fun day at our wedding is because we made it our own. Try not to get tied up in all the commercial non-sense, and just have fun with it.
How gorgeous do Amber and Caleb look? Their day was beautiful – Thank you to them both and to Blossom and Bloom Photography for sharing with Marry Me Ink today!
