Photographer Liz LuiThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them said that Cameron and Keith's Chicago wedding was inspired by novels such as The Once and Future King and Jim Henson's film Labyrinth. Combine those mystical items with the old-world glamour of Chicago's Alhambra Palace, and you can almost see the magic in the air. Cameron added to the theatrical flair with an incredible gown custom-designed by Branimira Ivanova, the costume designer of renowned Hubbard Street Dance. The lace, the collar, the skirt, the veil — there isn't an element of the dress that isn't mind-blowing.

I've saved my favorite details for last. Cameron's purple updo is everything I want in life, absolutely, BUT. How many grooms have YOU seen lately with a hot pink crew cut? And wearing a unicorn mask? You go, Keith. You go.
