Offbeat Bride Link: Dorian and Lynn's Wedding

Check out this delightful wedding (including a Dark Garden wedding gown) featured on Offbeat Bride!

Dorian & Lynn's geeky elegant dino museum wedding

Real Weddings: Western US By on September 12, 2011 15
The offbeat bride: Dorian, attorney (and Tribe member)
Her offbeat partner: Lynn, QA Lead for video game company
Date and location of wedding: Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Los Angeles, CA — June 11, 2011
What made our wedding offbeat: Almost every vendor we used, we found on Offbeat Bride or the Tribe, directly or indirectly. There was no single theme other than the fact that it reflected each of us individually and our relationship together, though there were some sub-themes of color, geekiness, sci-fi, and nature.
