Fab dreads, skull flask garters, and a groom in shining armor

By on Jan. 7th

Karly and Steve are my new deadlock heroes — isn't Karly's two-tone updo just gorgeous? The reader submissions gave us lots of other amazing shots, too, like skull-patterned flask garters, a groom in shining armor, an air plant bouquet, and a sidewalk chalked save-the-date.


Karly's bouquet also doesn't disappoint: fabric flowers, lace, ruffled burlap, tiny pearls… I die. Photo by Allebach Photography

Tribesmaid Asha and her groom also rock some serious style. I love her feather bodice. Photo by SapphireSky Photography
