Red and blue and DIY all over — these two ladies know how to throw a stylish and entertaining wedding! They included all of their talented community — performers and bakers alike — and their tribute to what their specific type of marriage means to them is tear-inducing and spot-on. And you MUST see one of the bride's mom's awesome, newly acquired aerialist skills! She's one bad-ass mother.

From self-catering the event to a little social anxiety to some rain before the ceremony, this wedding could have gone awry. But this pair ended up with a super positive, love-affirming, and GORGEOUS mountain-y wedding. Even the ceremony ended up unintentionally extra awesome by becoming a wedding in the round! Don't forget to find the MINGLO photo, too!
This wedding is a pretty easy sell: they had a BEER UNICORN! And vodka slushies! And ocotopus and mustache dresses! And tentacle fingers! And animal centerpieces! And the Cliffs of Insanity! We're dropping-our-pants-happy about this Texas-meets-Ireland wedding. It's too much — go on without us and enjoy!
Dayna and Jason's Colorado wedding had so much going for it: Dayna's short and sweet dress, Jason's Boston tie, their walk down the aisle together, the amphitheater setting with a view we can't even handle right now, and GRATUITOUS DOGGY SHOTS! This pooch is walking down the aisle, front-and-center at the ceremony, and then falling asleep in the middle. We are bowled over with cuteness. Then it's on to the reception where there's carb-loading and robin's egg centerpieces.
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a Whovian couple who got engaged while dressed as Doctor Who characters and wanted to tie that into their decor. Include some Gallifreyan script, some TARDIS blue, and a really fun idea for a guest book, and you've got this amazing winery wedding.
Only a few weeks to prepare, only room for 12 guests… how can they make this work?! Oh, they so did. The small guest list totally fit this introverted couple's preferences, and the intimate space amid the hustle and bustle of a renaissance fest was fabulously adorable. Add in some Harry Potter colors (Ravenclaws represent!), an "Always" necklace, and "Mischief Managed" rings, and you've got the recipe to brew up a love potion for us all.
This whirlwind of a wedding goes all over San Francisco, on top of a two-story carousel, into parks and pubs, and flies a kite the whole time. Plus, it's so much of a whirlwind that it started 45 minutes early and the couple didn't even realize it! You might remember this bride from her GoPro bouquet, so here's the full, amazing, colorful story from the couple themselves.
This bride's custom-made cobalt blue Victorian dress steals our hearts, and the rustic, forest-y details take the rest. Non-matching bridesmaids in white, a fabulous ceremony gazebo, and so much ambiance. Oh, and wait until you hear the story the groom told in his speech. Let's just say it had something to with self-tanner.
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got a Victorian-styled red rose wedding paired with a book theme and a red dress with a peacock train. We're talking a book cake, book pages bunting, a fabulous DIYed top hat, and all the vivid red you can handle.
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 book-loving, Shire-hopping couple knows how to harness the power of their friends and family. And it all resulted in one super adorable wedding day. Prepare yourself for what might be the awesomely geekiest handfasting we've seen. From book bouquets to a frozen flower disasters, there is much to see. Just watch out for the carrot cake hedgehog murder!
