Rock Band, drag kings, and burlesque: this rainbow wedding triumphs

Crystal and Kalem wanted the focus of their wedding to be on major FUN, so that called for Rock Band, board games, personalized crossword puzzles, Mad Libs, a rapper, drag kings, and burlesque. Add in a ring warming, a moment of silence/blessing during the ceremony, a handfasting, and an art gallery surprise from Kalem with loads of art, this rainbow wedding gave us reason to LIVE.

In lieu of a first dance, they had a first Rock Band song, and their six parental figures joined for a family performance.

Jeweled peacocks and gourmet donuts at this Portland meets India wedding

Following a month-long trip and a traditional wedding in India, Jess and Chintan returned home to Portland, Oregon for a low key, small, and simple wedding with friends that took place on April Fool's Day. The day began with a civil ceremony at Multnomah County Courthouse where the judge was gifted with a custom cake by Dream Cakes. Jessica rocked a custom-made gown, gold Loubotins, and gold sequin Converse for the reception.

After taking a romantic pedicab tour around the city, they returned home to their newly built house with their friends and family for treats from Voodoo Donuts and Poplandia popcorn following a dinner of sweet and savory grilled sandwiches from local food trucks, PBJ’s Grilled and Koi Fusion. It was delicious, gorgeous, and a total fusion of their favorite things.

Try not to cheesy grin at this Wiccan wedding decades in the making

Lisa and Dave's sweet Wiccan wedding was a sight for sore eyes. Traditional Wiccan ceremonials and blessings were included in the ceremony, and Lisa was able to inject a little nostalgia via candle favors. One of the first gifts Dave ever gave Lisa was a box of Periwinkle crayons, so Lisa made crayon candles as gifts. But our favorite part was that they met back when they were just kids and reunited again on Facebook decades later. It's a love story for the modern age. Don't miss the cupcakes at the ceremony!
