Wed the World: Our commitment to travel, culture, love, and the ultimate destination wedding!

Welcome to Wed the World! Thanks for finding us and supporting our journey.

How did Wed the World come about?
As we began our wedding plans talk, we discussed several different ideas for the “perfect wedding”. As curious adventurers, the “perfect wedding” spanned across being barefoot on a beach, trekking through a jungle, an intimate setting in our hometown Seattle, amongst many other things. We were already planning on traveling through Southeast Asia in 2014, and after finding out Branden’s work would land us in Japan for 4 months, we decided why not get married in Asia – but where?

A wedding ceremony is the greatest celebration of love – and also is one of the greatest ways to observe another culture. So we thought why not celebrate our love all over Asia by having traditional wedding ceremonies in each country we go to? And the idea of Wed the World was born. Whichever country we are in, we will be holding that culture’s traditional wedding ceremony in their country – from the dress, to the food, downright to their rituals. We are having a total of 8 weddings, and each will be different.

A Lifelong Commitment
Travel is a commitment in our relationship, so we decided that Wed the World would not just stop here. Every year for our anniversary, we plan to travel to a different country and renew our vows by holding a traditional wedding ceremony in that country for the continuation of our lives.

The True Meaning of Wed the World
Wed the World is not just a wedding to us, it’s a lifelong project to learn and celebrate love through the eyes of every culture in the world. Everyone has different rituals for weddings, says ‘I love you’ differently, expresses it differently, but we know what we can contribute and what they can contribute to us – that love, no matter where you are, is the same in every place.

We hope you will join us out on the road to help us learn about love and celebrate it across the world! Stay tuned for more details on our journey as we start to prepare for this trip.

With Love,

Liz & Branden
