Hang on tight for dinosaur skellies, kitteh shoes, and a first dance under a T-Rex

You must see this Jewish wedding surrounded by dinosaurs at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Houston, Texas. Samantha and Matt are Californians originally from Houston, and they held their wedding in their home city. Things not to miss: the ceremony overlooking the dino skellies in the Paleontology Hall, the Charlotte Olympia cat shoes (cat ladies unite!), and the first dance underneath a T-Rex. The tablescapes were all different, with moss and grass in terrarium glass bells. You may drool over their macaron-covered cake, too.


Antlers and top hats and dinosaurs, oh my! A natural history museum wedding

Suzy and Arin's October wedding evoked spooky glam, thanks to the delightfully macabre interior of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Vultures and skeletons and dinosaurs really do cast the best shadows in marble halls. A prop-making friend crafted a Hocus Pocus-themed guestbook for the occasion, and tiny Day of the Dead figurines graced the reception tables.


Sparkly things to go on your body (and not shoes, for a change!)

We interrupt this never-ending stream of shoe posts for a brief dip into the pool of sparkly things to wear on other parts of your body. Can I do this? Can I talk about affordable, semi-vintage-styled jewelry for a moment? I'm going to peek through Modcloth's new wedding section to pick out a few of my favorites from their very tastefully curated collection. Y'all know me, though… my tastes don't always run toward what most people would consider "tasteful," so I've got other options for y'all, too… because you know, some of us are sparkly necklace people, and some of us are having dinosaur weddings.
