Guerrilla Wedding: Angie & Rohan


* Angela, Pursuit Coordinator & Rohan, Retail Clerk * Photographer: Melejane Latu Motulalo * Soundtrack for reading: “Out On A Limb” by The Los Dos Bros * Venue: Rivertown Revival and their $5 weddings (rad) *

One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: It was a fun, relaxed, festive, “go with the flow” type of day; we got to play dress up and so did our guests!

The Info—Photography: Melejane Latu Motulalo / Venue: The Hitching Post at Rivertown Revival / Flowers: Done by Angie and her BFF using supplies from her own garden and Sequoia Floral in Santa Rosa / Angie’s Dress: Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dress purchased in 2008 (bought for the pockets!), which was then altered by a local seamstress, Dorothea Couture / Angie’s Shoes: Forever 21, with shoelaces made from ribbon purchased at Carolina and Company / Angie’s Hat: H&M, customized by Angie / Angie’s Jewelry: Vintage and/or handmade by Angie / Angie’s Gloves: Zen and Coffee with buttons added by Angie / Angie’s Parasol: Poison Apple (who will actually be a vendor at Rivertown Revival this year!) / Angie’s Hair & Makeup: Both were done by the lovely Rod Schmittou of MoonEssence Salon and Spa in Petaluma / Rohan’s Vest: Funk and Flash in Sebastopol / Rohan’s Shoes: Classic Sperry Top Siders / Rohan’s Suspenders: Thrifted for about a dollar! / Rohan’s Pocket Watch and Chain: Belonged to his grandfather

Other cool stuff we should know about: Our wedding ceremony cost $5 including venue, musicians, and officiant (they even offered us a photographer, but we already had one). I paid for our wedding and bought a Rivertown Revival hat with a $20 bill! They even announced our wedding on the main stage after we got married we were the first couple to ever get married at the RR and there was an article about us and the festival in the Press Democrat the next day. We encouraged our guests to wear costumes, or at least hats—and they did! Also, random people witnessed our ceremony because it is open to the public. I got a lot of hugs from strangers and found pics of our wedding on lots of different facebook pages!

Favorite thing about the wedding: Our outfits.
