Aly, Elroi & The Pirates

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

We’re still celebrating the CA Supreme Court Ruling out here in San Francisco, so I can’t resist posting this! I wanted to share this amazing Moulin Rouge-esq wedding with you because it is so cool, so stylish, so inspiring, and so unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I baffled why it hasn’t made it’s way all over the blog-o-sphere already. It was shot by the super talented Our Labor of Love out of Atlanta. So here goes!

Meet Aly and Elroi:
