Steampunk madness, kissy faces, and one rockin' ring monkey #Reader Round-up#beach#bearded groom#bunting#button bouquet#multi-colored dress#outdoor#short dress#steampunk July 25 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw The Offbeat Flickr Pool was full of Steampunk, kissy faces, and ring monkeys.

Photo by Carolyn Miller Kristie and Jacinda perform the traditional tie-grabbing ceremony to seal the deal. As Kristie says, "she's mine now!" On a very different, beach-y note, here's Mari and Jeff getting blown away by some crazy wind. Good thing it forced them into making the most adorable faces. Tribe member Sweetpea found glassware bliss in these aluminum cups that matched her wedding colors. Plus she scored toasting glasses from Goodwill. And check out the herb-infused sea salt favors.

And there's a little explosion of details going on here: handfasting cords, ribboned hair, button bouquet… so fun. This week's Clicky Links: What we've pinned this week: tiered cotton candy, a lush red heart cake, and Harry Potter-inspired invitations and proposal idea.

This R2-D2 cake from The Uncommon Cakery is epic. Seriously realistic and looks delish. There's always room for Jello at a wedding in the form of these spiked and fancy shots. Hey, photographers!
