This wedding is the most amazing combination of gothic cemetery setting and reverent ceremony of two clergy members dressed in their loveliest vestments in a truly gorgeous church. You'll also love the mash-up of traditional hymns and Rise Against at the ceremony! Come check out the gothic splendor of this wedding.

A luscious red dress, a guy-linered groom, an amazing theater venue, and a plan to make everyone mix and mingle that included ornate masks — this spooky Halloween wedding in Salem, Oregon makes our knees quake in fear… I mean lust! Add in some movie and video game-themed music and some costume-clad guests and you're in for a spooky time with a super gorgeous backdrop.
For this Swedish couple, 'til death do us part just isn't going to work. They embraced the theme, "Far longer than forever," complete with skeletons to represent everlasting love. With rich red and black details and a gorgeous church backdrop, we'll be in love with this wedding forever, too. Oh, and just wait until you see their matching skeleton shoes!
We'll hopefully be profiling the full wedding soon, but I have to stop first to give some snaps to Rob here and his impeccable gothic-tinged suit, complete with one of the most beautiful red jackets I've seen in a long time. Oh, and the buckled red vest? Amazing. The detailing, you guys… THE DETAILING. And the accessories! And his bride, Liz. Just wait…
I'll say it again: a-frickin-dorable. Lise was seven months pregnant when she married Sam in a California backyard last November, and now I just want to see more cute moms-to-be in combat boots, please. Preferably with short hair dyed to match their wedding colors (black and red, y'all!).
Once you've stopped cooing over how cute Lise and Sam are together, may I direct your attention to a few particularly stunning details? For example, a family friend put together Lise's incredible bouquet. How COOL are those long chains dangling from the fabric flowers? Keys and brooches are hiding out in the mix as well.
Maybe you're planning a wedding with some Neo-Victorian elements? Or a dark rockabilly wedding? Or a ruffled noire antique goth wedding? Whatever the inspiration, you're going dark, and you're looking for some black shoes with a hint of frill for a taste of sinister to go with a day of joy. I gotchoo, friends, with this collection of black shoes with bows of various sorts — peep-toed heels with retro bows on the front, flats for the darkly dapper, and a few randoms to keep you on your toes.
Serge and Ely wed in Pennsylvania at the Abington Art Center, which proved to be a most excellent backdrop for their vintage and goth-friendly wedding day. The bridesmaids were decked out in mismatched purple gowns, the groomsmen (and officiant!) donned top hats, and an adorable owl and beaver topped their cake. If you're a fan of costumes, you'll totally dig the unicorn mask that the bride and groom took turns wearing during the reception. Thanks to Offbeat Bride vendor Fun and Funky Wedding Photography for sending these our way!
A little goth, a little geek, and a teeny wedding for us to love. Don't miss the awesome certificate of marriage, the very meaningful handfasting cords, the Gallery Serpentine custom corset dress, and the Minuscule-themed cupcakes. Plus, the bride shares some very handy advice if you're planning on rocking a corset. Oh, and you'll love the bride's hilarious way of "proposing." It worked!
Gothic details, a shimmery black dress, lots of skulls, and a sweet little backyard tent for all the loved ones. There was a lot of DIY, and with it, some sage words of advice about self-catering. But our favorite part has to be the story of the father/daughter dance surprise. Get your hanky!
An intricate headpiece, a lush brooch bouquet, a Renaissance-style purple and black dress, and some Nightmare Before Christmas details — it's a wedding any Tim Burton fan would love. With lots of DIY and a casual vibe, everyone seemed right at home. Plus, don't miss the canine ring bearer in a shmancy top hat!
Black wedding shoes might be the most rewearable wedding accessory in existence. Since today is Black Friday (aka the day Americans who don't know about Cyber Monday try to go shopping and mostly just beat each other up), I figured it might be a nice time to look at some of my favorite black wedding shoes.
