Anda & Peter’s Last Minute Wedding

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

Have you SEEN this wedding? Because for serious, you need to check it out. Before I show you the pictures, let me count the ways I love it.

  1. Pregnant bride. Yeah, we all have been to weddings where someone got a little enthusiastic about the engagement, but how cool is it that she rocked a white dress, showing and everything?
  2. They procrastinated planning the wedding till the month before. (Who doesn’t feel them on that?)
  3. $80 handmade wedding dress.
  4. Reception at a bike lot decorated with paper airplanes.
  5. Grooms motto was “If you can’t skateboard at your wedding, when can you skateboard?”

    I love this wedding, every bit of it.

    There was a time when we hoped I might be a pregnant bride, but alas it wasn’t to be. I so would have been a fairytale-princess-up-the-duff bride.

    I’ve decided not to plan anything else until 3 weeks before the wedding, I’ve had enough!

    I haven’t read Swallows and Amazons, I’ll have to try and find it. I love children’s books! Thanks for the tip!
