A barefoot travel-themed summer camp wedding (with breakfast buffet!)

Caitlinn and Luke were married atop a huge rock in a beautiful, sunny clearing. The day proceeded with happy tears and bare feet. They incorporated their love of travel (especially to Africa) in their decor and theme. Instead of giving away something small as favors, they had glass jars with Beta fish in them next to three different charitable organization's write-ups. The guests could take a pebble and pick which organization they wished receive a donation in their names.

The Arkenstone of weddings: a barefoot Hobbit-themed wedding

When it comes to Lord of the Rings weddings, this barefoot Hobbit-themed wedding wins all the Arkenstones. Lanterns, elven bridesmaids, a crown headpiece, hobbit groomsmen (and groom!), and even a dwarf! Gandalf the Grey presided over the ceremony and they ate Hobbit hole cake. There's so much Tolkien goodness to see, on top of the already amazing silver dress, purple hair, and epic costumes. This pair won't be throwing their rings into Mount Doom anytime soon.

Sword fights and hot booty: Don't miss Ashley & Erik's Caribbean pirate wedding

You guys, we know a good pirate wedding when we see one, and this one brings the house down with its Caribbean locale, amazingly detailed costumes, ACTUAL SWORD FIGHT at the ceremony, super well-crafted pirate-themed decor (including treasure chests), cardboard cut-outs, fire spinners, drunken video guest book, pirate-themed scavenger hunt, and my favorite father/daughter walk down the aisle yet.

Risa & Jon's purple-corseted, gender-quirked, barefoot wedding

This pair wanted to have everything either be reused or reusable, including their AMAZING outfits. They also wanted an event that reflected their maker-style, love for public areas and green space, and geeky aesthetic. So they ended up with a melange of aspects from wine and beer making, the NYC subway, and science-fiction and fantasy.
