75% of couples included at least one signature element in their wedding day. What exactly do we mean by signature? A signature element is completely personalized for the couple -- think custom, unique and one of a kind.
Today's couples are always looking for new ways to make their wedding stand out from the rest, and in response, some local businesses are getting seriously creative. Here are 5 of our favorites.
1. Snake Oil Cocktail Company (Signature Cocktails)
San Diego based Snake Oil Cocktail Company works with couples to whip up delicious, one-of-a-kind cocktails that tell a story about the couple. Think ingredients like smashed smoked corn, wildflower honey, and blueberry soliel (yep, you read that right).

2. Hammie The Photobooth (Vintage Trailer Photo Booth)
Portland, Oregon, based Hammie The Photobooth is owned by pro photographer Jeanette Schenk. The 1964 canned ham shaped trailer, fully restored by Jeanette and her husband, is a new favorite across the Pacific Northwest. This adorable, Tiffany blue trailer is fully equipped with a DSLR camera, an interior Bose sound system and can squeeze (almost) every member of a bridal party inside for photo booth fun (up to 12!).
