Tons of handmade pillows, hay bales, leaves, and picnic blankets — it must be an outdoor wedding, right? Nope! But it may as well be. Due to some wet weather, these two brought the outdoors in for a green and brown faux-forest wedding. Even the flower girl and ring bearer got in on the theme action. Chalk up some bare feet, some lovely poetry, and a big ol' party, and you're ready for forest-y fun indoors.

I love when crafty folks work their magic on the wedding — handmade jewelry and rings, lino-block printed invitations, handmade bridesmaid dresses… we boggle at the talent! And in this case, it allowed them to have more guests with a smaller budget. Plus, you don't want to miss how flippin' gorgeous these two are with their ink and vintage-styled fashion! I suspect many staff cat-fights over who gets to be in the sandwich with these two.

We've got two ladies celebrating their favorite holiday, a black ribbon veil, amazing black pumpkin bouquet, and of course, Central Park in New York City! Plus, they had The Reverend D (rad Offbeat Bride vendor) officiate dressed as ELVIRA! And there may have been a wedding crashing zombie in attendance as well.
A smidge of Alice in Wonderland, a Regency-style tailcoat, and a bride coming out as Pagan to her family: this is an intriguing combination. But don't miss the gob-smacking ceremony location and tear-jerking father/daughter dance. Tissues required!

Come get your groove on with this self-DJed partay!
So you're planning a wedding, you're all set, and then a bundle of joy interrupts? Turned out just fine for this happy family. The postponement and reboot of this small wedding in the mountains gave them time to fold all the origami and prepare all the food for their intimate family-only gathering, with their princess along to play baby-bouquet.
Get out your eagle eyes, because there's a lot to see in this raptor-lovin' wedding. Not only were live birds of prey there for the ogling, but guests got a chance to live in this couple's shared brainspace for a day, with hula hoops, a drum circle, and a couple of celebrities. As if that wasn't enough, guests got their sax on in an ultimate sax-off, and that's after the whole party was Rick Rolled. They're never gonna give you up….
After seven years together, these two were used to working together. Photos in the centerpieces, slides in the crafty boutonnieres, a ribbon wand sendoff, and a great twist on a ring warming are just a few of the gorgeous details.
