The original idea was to have a red and black/goth wedding, but because we both enjoy nature and he is pagan. The subject of having a Pagan wedding came up. Anyone else having a pagan wedding or have any ideas for a pagan wedding?

I didn’t have a pagan wedding despite being one (DH is not a pagan and we wanted a simple civil ceremony) but have been to many.
However, when you say “Pagan Wedding” I’m wondering what you are actually envisaging. Only most pagan couples that I know have had two ceremonies – the legal bit which, here in the UK has been a civil ceremony in a Register Office/Town Hall – followed by a handfasting (in all cases in beautiful woodland settings) conducted by a pagan officiant and at which customary pagan elements – setting out a circle and honouring the Four Elements for example – are included.
Of course the laws about who and where a marriage can be conducted are completely different in the US. Do you live somewhere that a pagan ceremony would be legal? Because if not, you’ll likely need two ceremonies.

My husband and I are both labeled as Pagan. We ended up marrying in a state that allowed couples to self unite. (There are only 3 in the US: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Colorado.) We did a handfasting, had our guests do a ring warming, spoke our personally written vows, and exchanged rings. We did what was right by us.
