This pair may have originally wanted a small wedding, but their family-focused book-loving wedding ended up being just right. We are loving the pink dress, gorgeous ombre chuppah (that took nine months to make!), and super special mom/daughter walk down the aisle. Bit it might have been the rendition of a Muppet song from the bride and her sister that really did us in.

This venue will blow your theater-loving socks off. The little geeky touches will steal your LEGO-loving hearts. The wedding party music will steal your pants and run away. Wait, this is starting to make less sense. Either way, there is something for everyone in this fancy-shmancy meets geeky and goofy wedding in a gorgeous theater. Go peek!
Pink glasses, purple groom's hair, and a poly-inclusive (and everything else-inclusive!) — this Jewish-meets-Boston-meets-New York wedding is just a dream. The couple dealt with some challenges: disabilities, long-distance planning, and how to incorporate all their interests — but damn did they do it well! Smoosh your face against the screen and give these cuties a virtual hug.
Hitchhiker's Guide, Game of Thrones, and zombie references all wrapped up in a joke-filled (and super meaningful!) ceremony and dance party — that's our kind of fun. Plus, you just might love their wedding party alternative at the ceremony. Oh, and don't miss the really good advice on how to mingle with the guests at the reception!
A killer movie theater venue, some 1920s fashion, and a recessional with a marching band — get ready for this Old Hollywood good time. And just wait until you read the bride's description of the ceremony entrance. Talk about a way to get us all excited about aisle-walking! But best of all… there is a giant, 40-person karaoke battle to none other than Meatloaf.
A gorgeous green bouquet, succulent favors, a Jazzy venue, and a cameo from our own developer, Kellbot — this New York City wedding is the balm to our rough days. Plus, their friends' video salute is one of the funniest we've seen. And just wait until you see how their portrait session was interrupted! Hint: it was a really sunny day!
Rare is the time we get a sports-themed submission written by a Tribesdude! It was extra special since it merited a few legit happy tears during the "last dance" section. Come enjoy the boat venue, sweet H.P. Lovecraft-infused ceremony, whiskey ceremony, and impromptu karaoke session. Oh, and wait until you see what the bouquets were made of!
Get ready for a gorgeous castle, a handmade winter cape (made by mom!), a lovely moment between the bride and her father, and lots of handmade goodies and details. Add in the book and rock elements and you're in for a super personalized good time. Oh, and just wait until you hear about their surprise hit: the HAIR BAR! I mustache you to look for it…
Give us a laid-back seaside wedding any day, especially if it includes copious amounts of beer, BBQ, and boots! this bride and bearded groom know how to party and how to keep stress low when planning a wedding. Don't miss the rustic arch, sunflower centerpieces, and all-beards-on-deck photo op!
With lots of red and blue, a sweet backyard ceremony, and a naked cake covered in knitted flowers, this wedding could not be dampened even by torrents of rain. Fairy-lit tents saved the day and allowed everyone to mix and mingle and enjoy the chic catered buffet. And watch for the bride "making a run for it" at the ceremony!
The wedding explodes with Victorian style, rich hues, and elegance. Add in the pagan ceremony, secret tattoos, and double top hats, and you're in for a treat. And just wait until you see the bride's favorite moment (sobs!) and the feeling the bride describes at the ceremony (shivers!).
