With lots of red and blue, a sweet backyard ceremony, and a naked cake covered in knitted flowers, this wedding could not be dampened even by torrents of rain. Fairy-lit tents saved the day and allowed everyone to mix and mingle and enjoy the chic catered buffet. And watch for the bride "making a run for it" at the ceremony!

Gathering family from many locations can be stressful, but these two celebrated their 15-year romance with their nearest and dearest and made it look easy. They rocked a choreographed mother-daughter-sister dance and a "first performance" instead of a first dance. But a cameo from a carboard pooch proved the funniest moment of all.
Karen and Kaitlin met at Plymouth University in New Hampshire, so, of course, it became their perfect venue for a fall wedding. Photographer Sarah Vanessa says that the couple had an unplugged wedding, a concept we've talked about before here.
The photos don't lie: Karen and Kaitlin look like they had the best day revisiting their college haunts. Please ooh and ahh with me as we enjoy the wedding dress (dat neckline), the bow tie, the vest, and wow, that reception dress.
A grand mosaic art-piece venue, Mexican vegan menu, a swing-y retro dress, and some Curious George — this is one visually stimulating wedding! Rain may have added some last-minute scrambling, but when you see it, you'll know it was worth it. And don't miss the sand mishap in the unity ceremony!
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.
Las Vegas isn't really known for subtle and intimate, but this pair made it happen, complete with a pin-up-inspired backdrop at a 1950s-styled Las Vegas wedding chapel. Add a twirly dress and crinoline, a ceremony high-five, and some "zombie faces," and this was a retro-fab party. Add on the big Toronto reception a month later, and the celebration was complete. Oh, and wait until you see the surprise ring from the bride!
This wedding has paper flowers, rainbow cupcakes, a silver dress by Miss Brache's, a taco truck reception, and a super crafty way to make seating a cinch. And when the bride sang Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You," all fell under her spell.
This wedding has glittery shoes, an evening sunset ceremony, rainbow cake, colorful crinoline, and some awesome lessons learned the second time around. Keep an eye out for the groom's "breast" friend, too.

These two love them some old timey fun and brought it ALL to their wedding in the bride's hometown of Detroit. She also totally schooled her Chicago pals in all things awesome in Detroit: the Henry Ford museum complex, awesome food (including Coney dogs!), and goodie bags filled with local snacks and beers. Get on your penny-farthing and come take a peek!
