From self-catering the event to a little social anxiety to some rain before the ceremony, this wedding could have gone awry. But this pair ended up with a super positive, love-affirming, and GORGEOUS mountain-y wedding. Even the ceremony ended up unintentionally extra awesome by becoming a wedding in the round! Don't forget to find the MINGLO photo, too!

Capetown's gorgeous scenery is the perfect backdrop for this sweet and intimate chapel wedding. You need to see this bride's necklace/shoulder jewelry AND the groom's adorable I'm-so-happy-to-marry-this-woman cheer or else our work isn't done. Our only regret is not being invited to their second ceremony in Zimbabwe!
This is Zam. Lily from Wild About You Photography photographed Zam and his bride Athena in Hong Kong, and I think we can all agree that he totally freaking ROCKED his groom gear. He claims that his style has been heavily influenced by NBA stars (HA!) but we think he's totally got his own thing going on — you're going to lose it when you see his shoes.
From bridal henna to stunning golden cranes, Suni and Chris mastered the art of blending their cultures for their Houston wedding earlier this year. With the help of event designer Events By Momo, the two created a dreamy landscape to wed in — including incorporating fluffy white clouds, white bridesmaids dresses, and a hanging seating chart made from paper, twine, and twigs.
After seeing this wedding, there is no way we all won't be in the mood for Mexican food and a full-on fiesta — which is exactly what this wedding entails. Papel picado, an awesome Mexican restaurant, and tons of DIYed decor worthy of the event make this colorful shindig a stunner. Add in the gorgeous vintage-style chapel and sweet mother/daughter impromptu dance, and you'll be in love with this love.
Cullie and Chris recently eloped at the Beverly Hills Courthouse with a celebration that placed a lot of emphasis on YELLOW and we're talking everything from the groom's tie to the bride's roses and carnations! Chris is a collector of graffiti art, and after the ceremony the couple wandered around West Hollywood to take photos against many of the area's fantastically-colored walls.
Karen and Sam's wedding took place at Preservation Park in downtown Oakland, California — and it turns out this park is the perfect backdrop for creative couples who are infatuated with all things CUTE. Everything from the rainbow paper cranes to the happy-faced plushies decorating the reception spot is adorbz.
Jacqui and Sam had a two-day wedding to cover all their bases: the couple wanted to honor Cambodian and American ceremonies and traditions. Photog Zac Wolf sent us photos from the colorful love-in that was day one (you can see day two here)! The events of the day took place in the couple's home, and they participated in four separate ceremonies.
We know that our brides run the gamut on how much they want to be involved in the wedding planning. This bride took it one step further and let her mom plan 99% of it! And their personalities totally shined through in their gamer geek music choices, colorful monster details (including Frankenstein shoes!), and choices in board games for the reception.
We love us some Halloween week, but we couldn't resist this Dia de los Muertos wedding, too! Sugar skulls, colorful decor at a fab Mexican restaurant… oh, and more sugar skulls! Grab yourself a margarita and check out this adorable hair-styling couple and their Mexican-American wedding love fest.
We love us some rockabilly, and we also love it when there's a chic tulle headpiece, flash tattoo decor, a squee-worthy first dance, and our own Rev. D presiding! And you'll love the traditional Polish-Slovak bridal dance that made the groom prove he will move mountains (of people!) to get to his bride.
