Tattooed bride Deanna and husband Chris had a nautical theme to their wedding day, which included walking the plank and jumping into the pool at their venue Deer Crossing Inn and photography from Matt Ritscher from New Hope Photography.
When I was 18, I went with a friend to watch him get tattooed and saw Chris. He was my friend’s tattoo artist. I was smitten, but didn’t actually meet him until a few years later when I was then piercing at the same shop I first saw him at. He had gone off to live on a boat in the Bahamas, but decided to return.
We were fast friends, and then roommates, all while dating other people. It wasn’t until after we moved out to our own places that we started dating, and here we are nearly a decade later both tattoo artists, business partners, friends, and a married couple in love.
I think all of our wedding represented us a couple really. It was where all of my friends and family came together, not only to witness our marriage, but they all worked their tails off too. Our friends did the set up, cooking, sewing, video making, officiating, photography ect. We also had live music at the end of the night that was stompy, piratey and a blast. I think that teamwork, community and fun are all things we try to aim for, and our wedding was a perfect embodiment of that.

Today is Marry Me Ink’s final post of 2015.. How quick has this year gone? I’m not going to do a year round up post this year – There would be far too much to try and fit in! Instead, I’m going to share with you Meagan and Micah’s inmate, outdoor wedding from Allison Jeffers Photography.
My sister is married to a fire fighter and she had just had a baby. (my niece) I was over at her house seeing the baby and Micah showed up to see my brother in law. He is also a fire fighter. He asked my brother in law about me and the rest is history.
We had a small, intimate wedding, and we both don’t like to make things big and flashy. We did it outdoors with very woodsy colors and we both love being outside.
Our entire wedding was DIY. I painted, spray painted, glued, and made many trips to Hobby Lobby. I am big on making things myself and crafting is something I enjoy, so the DIY aspect of the wedding was very important to me.
I definitely took my tattoos into consideration when searching for my dress – I love the classic look with tattoos and needed mine to show!
Remember tattooed bride Clare and husband Jon’s Tattooed Spring Garden engagement shoot and story of how Jon proposed using their dog? Well, it’s now time to share their super gorgeous colourful wedding that took place earlier this year (after only 20 weeks of planning too!) from Emma of ELS Design Photography.
I knew who Jon was for a while, he used to come to my work for lunch every now and then, a while later we met in a night club and we briefly spoke. However, a few weeks later, by coincidence, we was set up by a mutual friend! We only needed the one date – we just clicked!
The overall theme of the wedding represented us, everything from our ceremony music to bridesmaid dresses. – we both love anything 50’s. We only had 20 weeks to plan our wedding, but I think we did a wonderful job! As soon as we booked our special day, we were shopping for decorations, favours and table pieces.. Most of them we had to make ourselves, but it was nice to have some personal touches to the day – Jon made all the stationery.

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you tattooed bride Kristina and husband John’s surprise wedding from Olivia Christina Photography complete with their pug Stanley in a bow tie!
John and I met on OK Cupid! He kept looking at my profile and I kept wondering why he wasn’t messaging me. So I messaged him! “I think we’d get along” was my crazy pick up line. We met at a bar on a Monday, and that Friday we went away together. I don’t think we’ve been apart since.
First off, our wedding was an engagement party turned surprise wedding! We had been engaged for a year with no plans of sending out save the dates, a “surprise” wasn’t really that surprising to our guests. We are both very hands on and creative people (both of us are hairstylists), so being able to do so much of the wedding decorations ourselves was very representative of us as a couple as well. Something really special for us was having our pug, Stanley there. We are obsessed with him so it only seemed right to have him with us, bowtie and all! All the details truly reflected us and our style from the Photo Booth with silly props, to my short dress, to the mason jar, to the succulents at every turn, to the Stanley Cup grooms cake. Not wanting a “traditional” ceremony or reception was important to us. I got to cut my wedding cake in a leather jacket! We got to be surrounded by friends and family, eat great food, drink great whiskey, take silly pictures, and hang out by a bonfire – it was everything we wanted.
