Just had a nice long chat with the lovely @momannino and wanted to post the cake she graced us with for our wedding! 🍰 She is so freaking talented and the cake was so beautiful! So many elements of our wedding were made possible through the collaboration and generosity of some fantastic artists like her, and I love all of these little details! 😍 #carpeandher
Is it weird that this is one of my favorite wedding pictures? I LOVE the way the tables came together! My mom collected dozens of glass bottles for us and we filled them with a whole rainbow of flowers. The vintage plates and goblets were all mismatched and we were obsessed with these neon pink napkins. Even the salad looks cute 😘 Thank you 📸@brianslawsonphotography for capturing these details! #carpeandher
Sorry not sorry for the wedding photo spam. 😘❤️🌈 📸: @brianslawsonphotography.
We got ALL our amazing wedding photos today from @brianslawsonphotography and I can’t wait to bombard y’all with them! From our first look in the nearby Christmas tree lot! Chair is @relicsvintagerentals ; bouquet by @woodvioletmke ; dress by @bridesbyyoung 😘🌲💐 #carpeandher
😍 Love these shots of some wedding details! ➀ Our save the dates and invitations ➁ The fancy little hanger Carpe painted for me ➂ The seating chart - all the letters were different sitabouts we found/made ➃ Rainbow piñata (in lieu of the bouquet/garter), which was filled with candy, glow sticks, and tiny liquor bottles and ➄ Our rings! Carpe’s used to belong to his great grandfather! ☠️💍🌈💌 #carpeandher
Slowly posting wedding pictures forever and loving this one that shows off my beautiful bouquet and the beading on my dress! And a little peek of that chair!

Happy coming out day! 🏳️🌈 Now more than ever I feel so grateful and lucky that both myself and my husband can live our lives completely OUT. Being engaged as a “straight passing” couple gave us both an unexpected glimpse into safe, unquestioned world of hetero weddings, and an opportunity to discuss that the LGBTA* community is everywhere, and that EVERYONE should be treated with the same respect. Carpe and I will never shut up about being queer. It has made us who we are, and I will fight and pray for the day when everyone feels safe and proud to be OUT. (Also will be posting wedding pics forever, sorry about it)❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
I can't even decide what element I love the most: that hair, his tie, that dark lipstick, her dress. It's all magic 💚💙🧜♀️ ・・・ #Repost @paigebcarpenter 📸: @brianslawsonphotography ・・・ I have no words right now except that I am completely overwhelmed with love and gratitude for everyone in my life. :heart_eyes: #carpeandher ・・・ #mermaidhair #weddingdress #weddinginspiration #greenhair #bluehair
GET BACK HERE!!!❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Just a handful of pics from the amazing wedding of @paigebcarpenter and @carpe_m 💙 There was a frickin’ balloon arch, a piñata with tiny boozes inside, and so much love that I had to redo my makeup after the ceremony. 😭 (Sign by @cassiegenc) #carpeandher #signart #balloonarch
It took a few days to post, but Ethan and I couldn't have been more excited to #celebrate the beautiful wedding @paigeberrier and @carpe_m on Saturday. We are so happy for y'all and your day was so beautiful and full of so much love. I didn't take nearly enough pictures because we were having too much fun! #carpeandher
Dressed in my gay wedding best.
I like having a b00b window.
A crown for a queer ass queen.
Some of the details from our wedding! I’m so proud to say that while some of these were created by my husband and myself, we also had SO many friends who lent their amazing talents to making our vision reality! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 #carpeandher 🌈 💍 🧀 🎈 * Welcome chalkboard by @cassiegenc * Camp map by @jadewatringart * Giant schedule by @smsillustration * Photos by @momannino
This weekend I helped coordinate a beautiful camp wedding for @paigebcarpenter and @carpe_m. I tried to capture a couple moments in the chaos but it’s only a small slice of the friendship, creativity, and love that filled the weekend. To friends and lovers! 🙊 the others! #carpeandher
Painted/glittered up these puppies for my coworker @paigeberrier and @carpe_m’s wedding shower a few weeks back. Thinking I may have to make some more for next year’s Pride! . . . #loveislove #pride #rainbow #glitter #roses #weddingshower #artsandcrafts #sideproject #timelapsevideo #carpeandher
The genius that is @that_hairstylist_melissa working her magic yet again. Can’t wait to see this color all done up for our wedding! 😱🌈
Missing lakeside sunsets, kayaking, campfires, being terrible at beer pong, relaxation, and these TRUE BONCHES 💕🚣🏻♀️🌅
Feeling sentimental over this ribbon bouquet, created with the wrapping from our shower gifts! One of the lovely hosts made it for me and I carefully carried it back on the plane with me to be used at our rehearsal. I love some of these old traditions! ☺️🎀 #carpeandher
Some very sweet friends of my family threw this amazing shower for Carpe and I this weekend! I was so touched by the personal touches they put into everything; from this photo display made with a window from my grandparent’s old house to the collage all the guests made a piece for! And of course featuring some of my Kohl’s stuff! ☺️ How cute is that?! We consider ourselves truly lucky to have such a wonderful support group! What a sweet day! #carpeandher
I have been waiting months to share this one! This is the quilt I made for my daughter and her fiancé for their wedding shower. I think she liked it. The inspiration for the pattern came from saija_elina, who indicated there was no pattern, just something she was playing around with. I wanted something really colorful for this pair of artist and this fit the bill. #terisquiltlife #carpeandher #saija_elina #quiltingcowgirl
So - I love this photo! I haven’t posted it yet because I couldn’t figure out this caption, and I felt weird just saying that, but honestly... this photo makes me feel like a million bucks. It’s a really cool feeling to know that much more insecure teenage you would be pumped to see how you style yourself today. I am so lucky to be surrounded and supported by so much encouragement and positivity from others!✨🌈💖🎠
Carpe and I are huge fans of the weird, fantastical, gilttery fabulousness that is The House on the Rock (seriously, if you haven't been there, go check it out, because I don't know if even these awesome pictures can accurately describe it)... and it seemed to me like the perfect place for these engagement photos. I consider myself very lucky to have a fiancé who shares the same weird brainwaves! #carpeandher Taken at the crazy House on the Rock by the amazing @brianslawsonphotography !

✨🌈💍 Post photoshoot phootshoot with my new phone after an awesome day of shooting with @brianslawsonphotography ! And a huge thank you to @that_hairstylist_melissa who not only created my dream hair but styled it for me today! 💖 I can’t wait to see it all together alongside my handsome husband to be! #carpeandher
A month ago I set up a secret haunted house proposal for Paige! I got in touch with our favorite haunted house and had them contact her to set up a dress rehearsal viewing, got her 3 best friends into town to surprise her, and then while we were going through the haunt I snuck out and went to the end and popped the question! She was SHOCKED and spoiler alert: She said yes! I am so excited for our future together and our wedding is going to be ridiculous y’all. Thank you so much to everyone that was involved!! Sorry I'm the worst at social media and I'm just now posting this! #carpeandher
☠️🖤💍 Last haunt of the season... Twisted Realms, again, of course! Amazing for Blackout! 365 days until next Halloween! 🎃
Proposal photos! Y'all... I can't even begin to describe how incredible this was. A few months ago one of the owners of one of my fave haunts, @twisted_realms, contacted me to ask if I would be interested in coming to their dress rehearsal. When we went last night with a few friends, Carpe got separated from our group in the haunt, and me, at the front kept going - only to come to the end and find this beautiful scene with all of our friends!, including @momannino, @inkmagnolia, and @jacobtobia, who he had secretly flown in! I'm still in shock, I can't believe how much trouble he went to and I was so so surprised! I love him so much!!!! 💍🖤👻🎃 #carpeandher
