There is A LOT to love  in this morning’s offbeat, multicultural Northern Virginia wedding. The couple met in an International Studies program, which is appropriate considering their multicultural backgrounds. The bride is Honduran and the groom, German. Their amazing, nontraditional wedding ceremony was in their Aunt’s back yard with DIYed florals by the bride’s sister and the celebration ended at 2941 restaurant in Falls Church.

Kevin & Carla’s Multicultural, Offbeat Backyard Wedding in Northern Virginia

About the couple:

Carla & Kevin met in school in an International Studies Program at Johns Hopkins University. Her family moved to the US from Honduras years ago, and Kevin is from Germany.

Wedding details:

Their wedding was held in the backyard of Carla’s Aunt’s home, and included their closest friends and family. Kevin’s family flew over from Germany to attend, and Carla’s parents and sister flew up from Florida. The decorations and flowers were all made by the bride’s sister.

Their offbeat, personalized wedding ceremony:

Carla & Kevin’s friends are gifted in music, and there was live music for the ceremony. The guests all got involved with the processional music by playing the wooden maracas that were on their seats. The bride’s Father gave marriage advice in Spanish with the bride’s mother translating, to the bride and groom during the ceremony, and the groom’s mother also spoke to the bride & groom during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, the bride and groom danced back down the aisle to folk music, played by the bride’s brother and close friends.
