Dayna and Jason's Colorado wedding had so much going for it: Dayna's short and sweet dress, Jason's Boston tie, their walk down the aisle together, the amphitheater setting with a view we can't even handle right now, and GRATUITOUS DOGGY SHOTS! This pooch is walking down the aisle, front-and-center at the ceremony, and then falling asleep in the middle. We are bowled over with cuteness. Then it's on to the reception where there's carb-loading and robin's egg centerpieces.

The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish in one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got an all-era time travel costume wedding! Think amazing decor (including light-up centerpieces!), a chihuahua in a dress, and a mysterious Time Lord officiant coming out of the smoke! This theatrical pair KNOWS how to throw a multi-talented party.
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.
Rachel and Rich's photographer, Pilster Photography, described Rachel as "the queen of DIY" so I know some of y'all are going to love this super happy celebration. These two had a limited budget and pulled together a day that radiates sunshine and giggles — complete with having their dog come along for the day.
Succulent favors, antiqued gift table, and some last-minute farm tables… it's a rustc and DIYed wedding! Oh, and don't forget the homage to the groom's Mexican heritage. We're talking Loteria place cards, Mexican blankets, and a taco and margarita bar. We also nominate their adopted shiba mix for the "best dressed wedding dog" award!
The details in this wedding are ultra fun: pinwheels, a crocheted bouquet and boutonnieres, lawn games in the park, a purty ring puppy… not to mention a Mexican buffet and a meaningful cheesecake! Yep, meaningful. You'll see why. This bride completely battled through a new diagnosis to get through wedding planning, and her love and perseverance shine. Plus, she has some advice for taking on the haters that any of ya'll can use.
Islands views, backgrounds and cultures, WWII history, and their sweet dog named Thor — these are things that make this couple tick. And since both had very different kinds of weddings before, this one only going to be about their love and the meanings behind it. Cue the Scottish island elopement with ink, a mohawk, and lots of ceremonial traditions.
Some weddings just lull you into a safe and happy place where things work out and smiles abound. This wedding is your respite from a rough day: a sunny and warm afternoon in Tennessee, comfort food (Southern-style, natch), dried wildflower bouquets, and hand-written vows. The only thing that would make it better would be a pooch in a tux. Oh wait, they had him, too!
Carolyn and Kaleisha are just making my day with their beautiful smiles and that high-five down the aisle. This week our Flickr pool was flooded with photos like this — of the most adorable and emotional couples! I seriously fell in love with all your smiles, tears, and celebratory high-fives. Scroll through this reader round-up with me and try not to feel the feels.
