Lauren, who is a witch, always wanted a repeating number wedding date so when she married Alex and 22nd February 2020 was an option, she jumped at the chance! Their wedding was inspired by Lauren’s passion for witchcraft as well as plants and crystals for the theme of the day.
The day began with Lauren doing tarot readings for each of her bridesmaids while they were getting ready. Each bridesmaid also carried a sage bundle instead of traditional bouquets and Lauren carried a giant amethyst geode that she had blessed. Her purple dress was by Hayley Paige which she wore with unicorn Toms and amethyst earrings that her mother also wore on her own wedding day.
The ceremony was led by their best friend and former roommate. It was a very meaningful ceremony. The table names were some of their favourite artists including the Mountain Goats, Lizzo, Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, Prince and Wu Tang Clan. All of the decorations were DIY including the table decor, the ceremony arch, photo booth accessories, stationery and welcome signs. They didn’t have a cake, opting for plant and crustal themed cookies instead! They also had geode inspired candles everywhere bought from Amethyst Amber.
The entertainment was also perfectly on theme, they had a friend do tarot and palm readings for the guests. The day ended with both the bride and groom throwing a bouquet, made from paper flowers stuffed with lottery tickets!
