Let's see: a clifftop ceremony in Hawaii, shaved ice, ono grinds (great food), and a blended 'ohana (family) — get ready for some serious sweetness. And just wait until you hear about their favorite moment in the car ride over! It definitely ups the happy Hawaiian family ante.

Rebecca and Meeka had to battle downpours throughout their entire wedding day, but even the most torrential rain couldn't stop them from smiling! The two held their ceremony in a barn decorated with animal skulls and rope, and cleverly used white roses to mark seats intended for family members. After jumping the broom, they moved on to the reception space, where plenty of dancing and toasting followed. If you still want more after looking at the photos, videographers Love Brain Films shared their wedding video right here. Get the tissues out! It's a good one.
Two extremely organized ladies who know how to rock an Excel spreadsheet are bound to know how to prioritize their wedding needs. And that includes a fab open bar, natch. Add in the adorable guest book wedding quilt, the tiny tuxedo-ed pooch, hilarious drag king officiant, and snazzy wedding garb, and you've got this adorable San Fran wedding.
Leah and Heather were married on June 7th at Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope, PA, where the pair had one of their first dates and countless date nights after. Leah designed the place cards, table numbers, her bouquet, Heather's boutonniere, and the CD favors. But the best silver lining moment came when the intense storm going on caused a blackout at the reception!
This singer/pianist duo loves performing and it totally shows in this musical wedding in a theater. We're talking sheet music flowers, treble heart cake toppers, super professional-looking, and headshots of the "wedding cast." But my favorite part of all is that they had MUSICAL VOWS! You've gotta see how they did it. Plus, if you've ever had a problem finding something dapper and non-dressy to wear to your lesbian wedding, you may have a… "semi-butch quandary!"
Carrie and Alynn created one of those idyllic days where everything seems to glow with love (and a fabulous blue sky day in San Diego never hurts!). From the pinwheel-lined path and bluegrass rendition of "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perry, the ceremony is one sweet moment after another. They celebrated their respective faiths, Christianity and Buddhism, and included a handfasting with ribbons tied by their mothers.
This one is going to be right on the money for you couples planning Halloween weddings right now. We've got two ladies celebrating their favorite holiday, a black ribbon veil, amazing black pumpkin bouquet, and of course, Central Park in New York City! Plus, they had The Reverend D (rad Offbeat Bride vendor) officiate dressed as ELVIRA! And there may have been a wedding crashing zombie in attendance as well.
There's something so laid-back and relaxing about Emily and Vicki's cliff-side wedding at Eagles Nest Retreat in Galiano Island, British Columbia. Maybe it's how everyone looks so chill and goofy-happy (and they're wearing flip-flops, popping corks, and dranking blue cocktails!). They also gave out homemade wine as wedding favors, because they know what the people want. Butterfly Photography was there to capture all their giggly goodness.
We spied this most excellently dressed wedding party recently and were totally hoping to see the full wedding story. Thankfully, Kim and Cole obliged. Get ready for a seriously chic venue with their added DIY fabulousness (like a sweet DIY photo booth and wine cork chandelier!), and two of the most dapper-as-hell brides we've ever seen.
Meg and Carrie hosted a casual carnival-themed wedding in Meg's parent's backyard in New Hampshire, proving that backyard weddings can be kick-ass for budget and scenery. (Seriously, the greenery is making me long for warmer weather!) Plus, they put a really fun spin on a ring warming ceremony by making it "interactive." Read on to see how they did it.
