Celtic Theme Wedding
Not all relationships have the traditional fairy tale beginning but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a fairy tale ending! Sometimes there’s lust. Sometimes there’s scandal! Oh! What a cliff hanger! I know I have you all gripping the edges of your seats. Alright, alright I’ll tell you. Jessica and Levi first met 8 years ago. And… Jessica was dating his best friend!
Best Friend’s Girl
For most love stories, this would probably be the end, but not for these two. Levi had feelings for her the whole time she dated his friend. The two eventually split. *Silent Fist Pump* Levi knew that he had to act carefully and slowly so he did not scare her away. Nobody fresh out of a relationship wants to be bombarded with “oh my gosh I’ve loved you forever! I’m so glad you’re single!” talk. Well, I don’t really think anyone wants to hear that at all.
Lucky for Levi, his slow motions toward a relationship worked and they worked well… so well that it soon morphed into a relationship worthy of a ring.
Since neither of them swoon and cry over sappy, romantic things, Levi struggled a little in coming up with the proper time and place to propose. The time and place turned out to be a Flogging Molly concert, in the parking lot. No, not really romantic but that’s okay! Why try and be something or do something that you’re not? Plus, Jessica appreciated it just as it was. He got down on one knee right smack in the parking lot, surrounded by friends (and lots of strangers) and asked. One guess as to what she said… (don’t get it wrong. That’s just sad.)
Now their wedding… their wedding was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced – in a good way of course! They chose to have a Celtic theme. Get it? It should all be tying together a little now. Flogging Molly is a Celtic punk band and they got engaged at their concert.
Levi wore a traditional Celtic teal and navy kilt. A single purple flower adorned his jacket. Broached to his shoulder and allowed to drape down the back, his fly plaid matched the color and material of his kilt. Around his waist was a sporran. Made of leather or fur, the ornamentation of the sporran is chosen to complement the formality of dress worn with it. It’s sole purpose is to act as a purse, or pocketbook, since Celtic kilts do not have pockets. Handy!
Jessica’s dress was a little more old-world than what we typically see at our venue. It matched perfectly with the Celtic style and theme of their wedding.
Their wedding ceremony took place under the shade of three large pecan trees. The trees were draped with bright purple fabric and then looped into grapevine wreaths to create a bit of an arbor. Each of her bridesmaids was in a different color dress, each accenting their colors of purple, teal and navy. This wedding truly was one of a kind!
