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!
This pair may have originally wanted a small wedding, but their family-focused book-loving wedding ended up being just right. We are loving the pink dress, gorgeous ombre chuppah (that took nine months to make!), and super special mom/daughter walk down the aisle. Bit it might have been the rendition of a Muppet song from the bride and her sister that really did us in.
A Nicaraguan groom, a Cuban-Bolivian bride from the U.S., and a glorious beach ceremony in Nicaragua — this is some multicultural fabulousness. But the best part is how much we learned from the bride and her search for unique local vendors for her destination wedding. Plus, get your hankies ready for the bride's story of her mother and the treasure boxes.
Kelsey and Joshua married each other to the tune of violins this past summer. Their own violins, in fact! The two musicians actually moved to Nashville (aka, Music City) the day after their wedding in Salem, Oregon. Oh YES. The bride walked to the altar playing a violin the entire way — and Joshua accompanied her with his own violin from the altar. I mean… does it get more romantic than that? No. No, it does not.
