When the bride told her groom that she had always wanted a fairy tale-style wedding in a castle, this groom didn't hesitate to do everything in his power to make it happen. And happen it did. Get ready for a fabulous castle venue, super helpful family (and hairstyling clients!), and a yummy list of food to round out this gorgeous day.

There are some who say the South will rise again — and it's true, if you're talking about nontraditional weddings! From Hotlanta to Texas, we love our Southern Offbeat Brides.
This week we're celebrating woodsy, outdoor weddings before it gets too cold. Today we've got a Heathen wedding full of meaning, community-driven support, and an amazing campground venue. Don't miss the bride's flower crown and purple hair combo, the druidic ceremony, and the extra sage words from the bride that will totally put your planning into perspective.
This week we're celebrating woodsy, outdoor weddings before it gets too cold. Today we've got lots of fandoms, lots of amazing cakes, and of course, lots of amazing forest-y scenery well into the night. Don't miss the bride's amazing multicolored corset dress, the DIY TARDIS photo booth, and the many amazing geeky-meets-entomology centerpieces.
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we've got a couple fully decked-out in Halloween colors, pumpkin cakes, a costume contest, and lots of Tim Burton. Don't miss the super gross-looking (but surely tasty) blood fountain.
Not everyone dreams of slogging for seven miles of muddy obstacle terrain in a big dress on their wedding day, but this bride knew it would be a bad-ass memory. She and her groom trekked the Super Spartan Race for 7.1 miles in their heavy, hot finery, to end on a romantic ceremony covered head-to-toe in mud. Ah, dirty dirty love.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a backyard wedding with family vows, Mad-Libs, polka dots, trivia, and tons of pizza. How did these two know exactly what we wanted to see today? Perk up your midweek with this super sweet, family-centric wedding on a Tuesday.
Peacock feathers, vintage glass, a super gorgeous mountain venue, and two lovely ladies getting hitched — this is one to see, folks. They may have had some issues carting guests around the mountain, but it was all worth it just to listen to the brides' original song composed for the wedding!
This music-loving pair reunited at a concert and got engaged at a concert! Music is in their bones. But don't forget their love of vintage style and of course… zombies! It's a wild mix of styles that all seem to make total sense once you see it. Their solution to a grounds mishap on the venue property is pretty genius. But don't miss the adorable hot air balloon centerpieces and Shaun of the Dead cake, too. It's uh… got a little red on it.
Hiking a mile and a half with your nearest and dearest probably isn't for everyone, but this outdoorsy pair and their awesome family and friends took on the challenge. And boy, was it worth it! We're talking cliff views, trees everywhere, and a picnic and lawn games reception. Plus, there's a gorgeous video that'll take your breath away. Oh, and don't miss the special message written in sandwiches!
Did someone say "gorgeous outdoor lawn games and square dancing wedding?" Yeah, I just knew you were thinking about it. Well get on board with this one: croquet, cigars, bow ties, and the couple handing out ice cream. Plus, you'll love the ceremony structure and big ol' singalong at the end. To what song, you ask? RING OF FIRE!
It's a bird, it's a plane… it's Offbeat Bride's comic book-clad and caped superhero theme week! Get in the telephone booth and change into your wedding-gawking superhero tights — you're in for crime-fighting fun. Today we're looking at some killer photo booth props, wedding-themed comic books, and the most epic wedding trailer ever.
