Spray-painted animal and wine bottle centerpieces, paper flowers and baby's breath, cupcakes, and everything gold — this wedding makes budget looks gilded. Plus, you'll be getting sappy looking at this sweet pair make goo-goo eyes at each other in almost every shot… well, except those where they're busting a move on the dance floor.

Michelle and Johnathon got legalled about two years ago, right before he deployed to Afghanistan — no time for a wedding celebration then! Fast forward to this past August, when they celebrated the tying of their knot at MAPS Air Museum in Ohio. Who needs a lot of decor when you've got frickin' planes scattered around your venue?
When the bride told her groom that she had always wanted a fairy tale-style wedding in a castle, this groom didn't hesitate to do everything in his power to make it happen. And happen it did. Get ready for a fabulous castle venue, super helpful family (and hairstyling clients!), and a yummy list of food to round out this gorgeous day.
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're spying a wedding full of Halloween goodies, a glam-as-hell purple reception dress, and a super meaningful ceremony from which you'll definitely want to take notes. Don't miss the R.I.P. on the cake!
It's our favorite week for spooky, gothic, and horror-themed weddings — it's HALLOWEEN WEEK! Today we're gawking at a seriously lovely outdoor winery wedding featuring mini pumpkin place cards, a zombie-killing sword ceremony, a full moon, and some amazingly carved pumpkin centerpieces. You'll never believe how the bride found their creator.
This pair of Chinese Aussies were not ready to take on a whole bunch of Chinese traditions for their wedding, but they did inject a little tradition in the form of some quick door games and an informal tea ceremony. Take a peek at how they combined their bookish, fabric flower-loving, and independent ideals into this sweet lil' wedding. Oh, and wait until you see how the bride protected her dress en route to the venue!
Books and superheroes? Belinda and Raul included both when they got married at Housing Works Bookstore last June. The bookstore in Soho, New York was the perfect backdrop for the couple's kickass style. Belinda was swoon-worthy in a tea-length dress, birdcage veil, and film-star-red lipstick. And if Raul would have only rocked his blue tuxedo and skinny tie, that would have been enough, but check out the hidden superpower underneath — he and his groomsmen sported superhero shirts under their duds! Photographer Carole Cohen mentioned that the fellows showed off the shirts during the reception — after a few drinks.
A few dice favors, some zergling pie toppers, and a chic warehouse-y venue — there is some seriously awesome nerd glam going on here. Don't miss the delicate greenery details in all of the decor (all DIYed!), the massive amount of teeny tiny pies, and the photo booth photos which are totally heading for blackmail land.
Peacock feathers, vintage glass, a super gorgeous mountain venue, and two lovely ladies getting hitched — this is one to see, folks. They may have had some issues carting guests around the mountain, but it was all worth it just to listen to the brides' original song composed for the wedding!
