A Victorian house wedding with retro glam style and sweet personal touches

Heather and Dan chose the perfect spot for their ceremony: the front porch of the Victorian house (built in 1888) where they live in California. They spent a ton of time getting the house ready for the ceremony and reception, and it paid off big time. Don's miss Heather's cotton candy retro hair, chic bouquet, mariachi band, and super duper cute look-alike cake topper!

This Victorian house wedding is making our day…

Bring a date or go stag: just get yourself to this nostalgic PROM-THEMED wedding

It's time to relive your high school years (or get a kick-ass REDO!) at this retro-tastic PROM-THEMED wedding. Just to whet your appetite: Christy and Stuart were crowned bride and groom, they wore sashes, roses, and crowns, and even rocked the "surprise" of it all. The guestbook was — you guessed it — a YEARBOOK. There was a balloon arch, prom poses at the photo booth station, a pink stretch limo, corsages, and it was all held in an actual high school gym (winner for wedding venue we hadn't yet seen!).
