This surprise Doctor Who scavenger hunt proposal would blow the mind of any Time Lord

This is the story of how my boyfriend proposed at the end of a surprise, Seattle-wide, Doctor Who scavenger hunt proposal. He spent months preparing for this, and his efforts really paid off! Weeks earlier, he'd told me to block out that day in my calendar for a surprise. I'm like a cat (curiosity "kills" me), so when the day finally arrived, I was eager to know what his plans were. Little did I know, they were EPIC.

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!).

Fancy socks + heels: let's get this to be a vintage-inspired THING

Socks and heels definitely aren't new (cuffed ankle socks and t-straps are vintage gold!), but I wouldn't say they're common at weddings. I've been seeing some really gorgeous and glam socks that could take your wedding shoe game up a notch. The real secret, though, is that they'll likely make your heels (or flats, oxfords, platforms, whateva) way more comfortable. I found a kick-ass selection of bedazzled, sequined, shiny, and totally formal (and not-so-formal) styles to pair with your wedding shoes.

A whimsical sitcom-themed wedding with a private vow reading

"Some of the moments that really stand out as the best parts of our day didn't actually involve our ceremony or our reception. We knew the day was going to be hectic and exhausting, and I have multiple chronic illnesses which can make it difficult for me to be on my feet for very long, so we wanted to plan the day in a way that involved us having some downtime to relax and just be alone together." Let's enjoy this gorgeous and hilarious wedding in Newfoundland…

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.
