Queer black Baltimore realness: a drag king and a burlesque performer get married

"Chris is an award-winning drag king and Sydney is a burlesque performer. Needless to say, this means our wedding was very theatrical." The dress code was "not basic," and they saw outfits ranging from sequin cocktail dresses to leprechaun costumes, to drag, to ALF. They walked down the aisle, catwalk-style, to a gay dance club classic, "Din Daa Daa" by George Kranz. Sydney's 35-year old brother was the ring bearer and her 98-year old grandmother made it rain with a Cash Cannon as the "flower girl." Y'all NEED to see this amazing queer black Baltimore spectacle!

This colorful laid-back wedding had a potluck pickle bar & a flamenco dance

Just wait until you hear how this couple crowdsourced a whole bunch of pickled goodness for their very own pickle bar at their wedding in Minnesota. We're talking green tomato, watermelon slices, asparagus, okra, beet, and burdock root pickles, among others! Come for the pickles, but STAY for the amazing flamenco dance later at the reception.
