Now, to be totally upfront, we paid for these four blog entries
. It was an "advertorial". Ariel over at Offbeat writes a killer blog and will occasionally write a paid listing if, and only if, she thinks her readers will love it. It felt like a (fun!) interview the day we met to see if she'd write about us!
So, if the thought of a traditional wedding freaks you out, head over and meet your new best friend and accomplice, Ariel Meadow Stallings. Her blog
on alternative weddings is actually a companion to her book, also called OffBeat Bride
. She will help you wade through the taffeta to unconventional freedom.
