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.
Today I get to share with you this gorgeous outdoor wedding of two roller derby players from Karen Leah Photography.
We first appeared on each other’s radar when my roller derby team went to San Diego to play against his then-girlfriend’s team. He was there jam timing. I even have a picture of me skating during warm-ups, and what looks like him watching me. We didn’t talk to each other, but he found me and friended me on Facebook two days later. A few months after, they broke up and he moved to Phoenix, while I’m in Los Angeles, and then a few months after that we started chatting online. We ended up having our first date ten months after that game, while we were both in Las Vegas for RollerCon.
The highlight of our day I would say was when we took our wedding photos with the truck we are restoring together. By the afternoon, the ceremony was done, emotions were calm, and I finally began to feel like myself in my hair and make up. We were both relaxed and happy. It was nice to be with one another without having to juggle friends and family.
