I'm an offbeat 40+ bride! My hubby & I designed an upscale DIY Pirates of the Caribbean inspired wedding in a Napa wine cave (then a 1960s "Rat Pack" reception in Temecula two months later). Amazing. Worth the wait to meet the right match; our wedding was way more creative than I could have ever dreamed. Happy newlyweds.
