A tiny secret wedding on a forest mountaintop in Tasmania

We got overwhelmed when we started looking at wedding planning a few weeks after we got engaged. Actually, we got overwhelmed just starting to plan our engagement party. We couldn't really agree on the number of people to invite, the theme, the location, or anything else. We're both from different parts of Australia and neither of us wanted to get married in the other one's hometown, so we decided to make it simple and run away to the most beautiful part of Australia. Tasmania. and get married in secret on a mountaintop, with only our parents and siblings as witnesses.


Glam style meets rock at this heavy metal wedding in California

Lauren and Bryan are both huge metal music lovers and they were able to incorporate little elements of it into their absolutely gorgeous wedding. It was the best of all worlds! Lauren rocked her stunning black sequined gown, and all the groomsmen had a mini guitar/picks as their boutonnieres. Oh, and don't miss their matching black and white Adidas, too. And what does a metal loving couple do for their invitations? Design them like a ticket to a rock concert, of course!

Each table was named after the couple’s favorite bands like Megadeath, Van Halen, Slipknot, and Def Leppard. But the real highlight of the night was when Lauren and Bryan got on stage themselves to jam with the wedding band. Check out the response from the guests. Pure concert magic.


A galaxy themed tiny zoo wedding with tons of DIY

Our wedding was a mix of us wanting to keep it below a very certain budget and wanting to make it the most fun we could. The theme was sci-fi and we had fun with it. For starters, all of our centerpieces were hand-made by us, each being a scene from a TV show or movie we loved. These included Doctor Who, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Fifth Element, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. We also hid some dragons and unicorns in there as a reference to our favorite fantasy animals.

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.
