Harry Potter fans, sit up and take notice! Joshua and Meredith had THE most themed-out wedding paying homage to the Boy Who Lived. The colors were Hogwarts houses (that would be red for Gryffindor, yellow for Hufflepuff, blue for Ravenclaw, and green for Slytherin, of course), the cake pops were Golden Snitches, Meredith wore a time turner, and the guestbook was nothing less than The Monster Book of Monsters. Guests got wands as favors, Hedwig stood guard over the programs, and Joshua and Meredith said their vows over an exploding Goblet of Fire while a Snape-look-alike presided over all. No, really, their officiant wore a wig and everything. That's dedication to a theme, yo.

Thrifted tea pots and finger sandwiches make our pinkies lift involuntarily. It's only natural that we'd squee over this wedding: the handmade purple dress masterpiece, the seamlessly integrated interfaith details, and the geeky book details are stellar. Don't miss how Strictly Ballroom may have subliminally influenced the bride's decision to marry her groom!
Beakers, test tubes, stacks of books, and a rocket dog — get ready for some steamy fun in this one! This super-organized pair also offered a stamping station, amazing steampunk hand fans, centerpieces you'll drool over, and a pre-game shot that was more than any of them bargained for.
This pair shares a big love of books, and of each other. Along with their three kids, they celebrated their SECOND marriage to each other surrounded by typewriters, book decor, and sculpted dinos straight from A Lovely Love Story. And we're pretty sure that title is perfect for this wedding.
Meg and RJ planned an Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding at Gum Gully Farm, a rustic wedding venue in Melbourne, Australia, that plays host to a delightful collection of wildlife. In fact, a certain goat on the farm played a pretty central part in creating a pretty hilarious Brady Bunch-style wedding party photo!
These two pulled in their family and friends to help out: it turns out they're related to a minister, a florist, and the pair of photographer-videographer-DJs that make up Post & Beam Co. The love these guys have for nature is clear — there are so many animal and plant touches. These guys are also big-time Wes Anderson fans, and used a bit of the filmmaker's style — especially with references to Fantastic Mr. Fox.
What do sledgehammers, croquet, and Harry Potter have in common? This wedding! A gorgeous outdoor wedding with Jewish traditions is capped off by an epic battle of wand versus sledgehammer.
