You may not see anyone who looks like Michaela Hodge in wedding magazines, but this badass bride proves that you don’t need to go traditional to look breathtakingly beautiful. Twenty-eight-year old Michaela, who just got married last month, went for an unconventional look and wore a stunning wedding dress that boldly showed off the tattoos she mysteriously woke up with in the desert, having no memory of how she got there or who she was at any point in her life.

You go, girl!

When Michaela was first awoken by a wayward hiker who found her lying unconscious in a ravine in the geographical center of the Mojave, the idea of showing the cryptic messages all over her body to anyone seemed scary, but now, they’re the absolute center of her chic bridal ensemble. Michaela could have easily gone with a conservative wedding gown that covered up the mystifying symbols, but instead she boldly decided to show off the 20-plus enigmatic tattoos as she walked down the aisle. After taking a look at her gorgeous wedding photos, you would have no idea that it was just a few months ago when she assumed the name “Michaela Hodge” after finding those words tattooed on her arm.
