Not Your Standard SoCal Wedding

January 19, 2021

“my heart’s friend”

When Josh & Ben inquired about their wedding I KNEW this wedding was going to be dope and I was not wrong. Since, their wedding their images has been reposted and recirculated around social media and honestly I’m not surprised. Their love is so fragrant it wasn’t hard to capture those beautiful moments.

Josh & Ben were giving all kinds of Anti-Bride vibes on their wedding day and Anti-Bride felt the same way. For those who aren’t familiar with Anti-Bride they are one of the leaders in fashion styling for trendsetting couples. Read their Josh & Ben’s love story on Anti-Brides page here.

Anti-Bride weren’t the only ones who felt Josh & Ben’s love story was worth sharing; Men’s Vow’s featured them on their blog as well! Men’s Vows supports men who marries by featuring their story on their page and social media outlets. Check out Josh and Ben’s story on Men’s Vows here.

What I admired most about Josh & Ben’s wedding was the amount of love and support that enveloped them. The whole day reminded me that family is much more than blood. In case you were wondering, yes, I bawled my eyes out.

When asked “what advice you would give to couples currently planning their weddings”? He responded

“Our advice for couples planning during COVID is to embrace the idea of small and intimate. Your mom’s neighbour’s hairstylist who you met when you were 4 does not need to be invited to your wedding. Surround yourself with the people who are currently pouring their lives into yours. Make sure those who are attending are your family — both blood and chosen – who will celebrate you!”
