Most of you know that I am on a mission to find offbeat, DIY, unique, and nontraditional couples to showcase on my blog. Unfortunately in Washington, DC, tradition seems to be more mainstream than creativity. Fortunately for Washington, DC – trying to change that is the driving force behind my blog. I have been working on a new tagline for the site actually, “A creative cure to the traditional bore“. Thoughts?

Anyway, when I came across this wedding from Gabe Aceves, I nearly fell off my chair (literally, I kid you not). Not only is this couple the epitome of classic, vintage style – but they got married in Georgetown!! This is exactly the kind of thing I am looking to promote more of in this city!!

Niki & Jon took their Rock N’ Roll vibe and perfectly combined it with a 1940s fashion trend. The result was breathtaking.

Niki had a vision for HER wedding and she stuck with it, and the pictures show how truly amazing a wedding can be when you stick to being yourself (in Niki & Jon’s case, full of tattoos and rock music) instead of trying to conform to someone else’s ideas of what weddings are supposed to be.

So sit back and enjoy this insanely amazing wedding, just don’t fall off your chair like I almost did!

The amazing bird-cage veil is from Unique Vintage!

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again … I <3 groomsmen in chucks!

I love the contrast of a traditional church and their nontraditional style here!

Non-staged Wedding Party pics are the best!
