This taco shop-turned-curiosity museum wedding will make you say "ooo shiny!"

Photos by Summer Shea Photography

The first thing that struck me about Virginia and Johnny's California wedding was her dress. That pink, filmy, floaty, poofy confection caught my "ooo shiny!" receptors. And then I noticed Johnny's fabulous beard and his super-suave gray and black suit, which caught some other "ooo shiny!" receptors. And then I got a good look at the wedding venue, and it was all over for me.

Tio's Tacos is a local taco shop turned into a curiosity museum, and it looks like such a rad place to get married! Random toys are everywhere, Virginia has a great photo in front of some huge plaster wings, and everywhere I look there's something fun to see. You'll definitely have to scroll through to see all the perfect weirdness, but please take note of my favorite photo of all: Virginia walking down the aisle escorted by her excellently dressed little boy. Stick a fork in me, I'm done.
