Rainy redwoods and tons of DIY at this Wes Anderson-themed wedding

The first thing to know about this wedding is that it rained. Not just any rain. It poured. And of course, it was an outdoor wedding in a redwood grove only accessible by an antique steam train. So there was no Plan B. But thankfully for us, everyone put on their galoshes and headed out to get Karen and Austin married.

But just wait, there's more. The reception was Wes Anderson-themed!

You'll want a bookstore photo session after seeing this retro wedding inspiration

This ultra stylish, 1950s-themed wedding inspiration got us right in the bookish feels. The bookstore backdrop is tickling our geeky hearts. I'm loving the aesthetic of myriad piles of books, shelves receding into the distance, and old wood from floor to ceiling. I wish we had scratch-n-sniff technology for the book smell! Plus, it's totally a stealable idea for your own engagement shoot or wedding portraits.

Singing, succulents, and LEDs at this musical light-up wedding

Adina and Sean's musical light-up wedding was a sight to see (that we wish we could have HEARD as well!). Adina is Jewish and Sean is Unitarian, so for the ceremony, they mixed and matched some elements of each. They also met in choir, so having their musical friends and family sing for and with them was a given. Their guests sang the wedding party down the aisle, with choir members providing harmony. A quartet of family and longtime friends sang a traditional blessing to them during the service. And Sean and his a capella group serenaded the bride at dinner. So much singing! So much awesome!

Don't miss the succulent place cards/favors, light-up shoes, tie, and sequins, and rockstar-inspired wedding dress…
