A glam & rustic Friday the 13th wedding

Kevin and I wanted to make sure our wedding was a representation of ourselves. We had planned on having the wedding in October once we got engaged and when we discovered there was a Friday the 13th in October 2017, we knew it was meant to be. Our wedding was Friday the 13th inspired with a dark yet natural vibe. The Codman Estate was the perfect mix of stunning natural scenery and modern convenience (bathrooms inside!). I wore a black dress (my dream) that I got at Macy's for under $150 which was a bonus for a thrifty maven.

Stars meets nature: a subtly geeky lakeside wedding with DIY for days

We combined our love for nature and the stars into a theme that came very easily for us. It helped that we found a venue that was the perfect setting to view the beauty of nature, as well as get a great view of the stars at night. To further our theme, I wanted to add a bit of a fantasy element so I decided to add subtle details that drew from Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, both of which we're big fans.

A Tim Burton-inspired wedding with hints of Star Wars and epic terrarium centerpieces

Tracy and Ben’s Tim Burton-inspired wedding was an amazing reflection of an aesthetic they love. Plus, there were hints of Star Wars and comic books, too. They got married at a private barn in Pipersville, PA that had rustic charm for days and plays host to art shows. Tracy DIYed all of the decorations including the very fun and geeky terrariums.

All of the groom's side of the wedding party were in kilts (including his sisters!) and their pups made cameos all over. There was a September heat wave going on, so Tracy rocked a gorgeous and goth-inspired black parasol for some ceremony shade. Then it was all about the dancing in the (slightly) cooler barn. Let's peep this killer goth and Tim Burton-inspired wedding…

A Nigerian-American carnival themed wedding (with Six Flags post-party!)

John and I love theme parks, especially Disney World, so I had the idea to have a carnival themed wedding. I initially wanted to incorporate carnival rides, but given our guest list size (about 250 people invited), we had to be more space conscious, so we opted for a wedding weekend that included a trip to the area theme park (Six Flags) in our wedding attire.

A fantasy-inspired wedding with influences of military travels

Brenna and Alexander had a gorgeous fantasy and Game of Thrones-inspired wedding with extra inspiration from their military travels, especially to China. The New York Chinese Scholar's Garden was the background for their ceremony where Alexander recited a poem he'd wrote especially for Brenna.

You could see the influence of things they love: traveling adventures, Game of Thrones, the color purple, and their two dogs/ring bearers (in bow ties!).
