An intimate and majestic Middle-earth elopement in New Zealand (with a rainbow!)

Kyle is an extrovert and wanted a large wedding in our hometown with all of our family and friends. I wanted a small elopement on top of a mountain in New Zealand where they filmed The Lord of the Rings. I wanted to feel like I was journeying across Middle-earth with the one I love. I wanted our wedding to be an adventure.

We decided to do both! Here's our magical Middle-earth elopement…

An Andy Warhol-inspired wedding had an artist's eye and it totally shows

Gina and DJ had an art-inspired wedding with one of the most interesting cakes with an amazing story. There were Andy Warhol details everywhere (including the cake, as you'll see!) including Warhol postcards tucked underneath the napkins, Campbell's soup cans as vases in the centerpieces, and cookies based on some vintage Warhol wrapping paper.

Are you ready to see this artsy Warhol-inspired wedding at The Cleaners in Portland, OR come to life?

This community-centered Catskills wedding stole our hearts

Ashley and Mi's amazing Catskills wedding was a handcrafted labor of love among their friends and community. Together they made hand-stamped welcome bags and poetry journals, Ashley's handmade earrings, paper cranes and ribbons hung from trees, collected bottles as centerpieces, and a group reading during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, it was dinner and a sparkler parade led by fiddle players to a contra band and square dance caller. We can only the imagine the fun after that. Let's see it all…

Singing, succulents, and LEDs at this musical light-up wedding

Adina and Sean's musical light-up wedding was a sight to see (that we wish we could have HEARD as well!). Adina is Jewish and Sean is Unitarian, so for the ceremony, they mixed and matched some elements of each. They also met in choir, so having their musical friends and family sing for and with them was a given. Their guests sang the wedding party down the aisle, with choir members providing harmony. A quartet of family and longtime friends sang a traditional blessing to them during the service. And Sean and his a capella group serenaded the bride at dinner. So much singing! So much awesome!

Don't miss the succulent place cards/favors, light-up shoes, tie, and sequins, and rockstar-inspired wedding dress…
