Bohemian Gypsy Wedding at Ijams Nature Center

As wedding photographers are we allowed to pick favorites? Well mark this one down for me. This gypsy inspired bohemian wedding at Ijams Nature Center is one for the soul. From the handmade crochet wedding dress to the quartz crystal crown; the vintage coffee mug and donut wall to the 1969 VW mobile coffee bus that so happens to have the name Wanderlust to top it off - my heart is on fire!

Let's talk about the nature inspired design for the adventurous couple. Keeping with an earthy element, the tablescape was designed with an abundance of greenery and agate slices, and we topped it off with a little bit of Restless Earth wine to fit the vibe (the yummy taste was an extra benefit!). The florist also built and designed a custom floral wall to display the naked cake topped with succulents giving the appearance that it is floating.

The best of all is the bride and groom's love for one another. Their free-spirited delight will dance its way into anyone's heart. Because I think their sun and moon couple's tattoo is pure perfection and because I cannot put into words the light that shines when they look at each other, I'll simply finish this off with a few words from E. E. Cummings:

silently if, out of not knowable
night’s utmost nothing, wanders a little guess
(only which is this world) more my life does
not leap than with the mystery your smile

sings or if (spiraling as luminous
they climb oblivion) voices who are dreams,
less into heaven certainly earth swims
than each my deeper death becomes your kiss

losing through you what seemed myself, I find
selves unimaginably mine; beyond
sorrow’s own joys and hoping’s very fears

yours is the light by which my spirit’s born:
yours is the darkness of my soul’s return
you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars
