"A few of our favorite things": a nostalgic wedding down memory lane

The theme to our wedding was pretty simple: "these are a few of our favorite things." One of the things that made us fall for each other was our similar interests from childhood. We wanted our wedding to be full of nostalgiac whimsy and, most importantly, us. From the first day we were engaged we knew we wanted to get married at Childrens Fairyland in Oakland, a place near and dear to our hearts. You better believe I called the venue that first day while laying on the beach in Hawaii.


A Houston artistic wedding with a Frida Kahlo-inspired headpiece that SLAYS

Candace and Onemena (aka Neemo) rocked an artistic wedding with influences of Frida Kahlo. There were beautiful and lush touches from Candace's dress to the florals to the decor and fab cakes. Being a muralist herself, Candace had huge inspiration from Frida Kahlo for her beautiful floral head piece, and Thorn Floral brought it to life.

Just wait until you see the green lacy, painted goodness of her dress. Add that to her red floral crown and you'll be blown away


A darkly chic wedding with karaoke and Mexican meets Korean food

Samantha and Michael lived in South Korea while planning their darkly chic wedding in Seattle. They rocks a self-officiated ceremony that was more of a performance than a ceremony itself. Michael played the piano, and the two of them quoted The Cure. But the most tantalizing part for me was their reception food. They blended both of their cultures by featuring Mexican and Korean-influenced dishes. YUM. Then it was all about killer karaoke and an after party under a moonlit sky.


A Victorian house wedding with retro glam style and sweet personal touches

Heather and Dan chose the perfect spot for their ceremony: the front porch of the Victorian house (built in 1888) where they live in California. They spent a ton of time getting the house ready for the ceremony and reception, and it paid off big time. Don's miss Heather's cotton candy retro hair, chic bouquet, mariachi band, and super duper cute look-alike cake topper!

This Victorian house wedding is making our day…
