Grab a slice with these lovebirds at their NYC pizza party wedding

New Yorkers Rebecca and Jeff were both looking for a wedding that was low-key, romantic, and fun. This turned into one of our favorite kinds of weddings: an intimate ceremony at City Hall, a pit stop at the bride's mother's home for a champagne toast and cuddle with their dog, and on over to their neighborhood slice joint. They ate pepperoni pie at the legendary Joe's on Bleecker Street, complete with "cake" topper, of course. They finished off the day by carving their names for eternity into the wooden booth with a butter knife (a 100% restaurant-sanctioned activity). This was way more than just a pizza party. You'll want to see it…

A beautiful intimate elopement (that WASN'T the wedding of our dreams)

Sometimes on wedding blogs, you only get to see the sunny side of weddings, especially in real wedding features. This time we've got a seriously lovely and intimate elopement that had more than its share of bumps in the road. Despite the problems, this pair triumphed with a gorgeous wedding that, while not the wedding of their dreams, was something to remember.

Get romanced by this tropical elopement at a waterfall in Costa Rica

Terrence and I eloped alone at the base of a waterfall in Costa Rica on our ten-year anniversary. We spent two weeks traveling the coast and rain forest of Costa Rica and spent our wedding budget volunteering with animal rescues (sloths and monkeys galore! We love animals), riding horses, bikes, and ATVs, booze cruising, beaching, and hiking. We even made our own chocolate in the rain forest.
