This pair may have never dreamed of their wedding much before planning it, but it's certainly become one of our dream weddings. With kilts, an emerald green dress, homebrewed beer, and Celtic wishing stones, it was pretty magical. But just wait until you see whose phone buzzed during the unplugged ceremony and the April Fool's prank they played on the guests!
Rainy weddings bring their own special brand of gorgeousness. Kat and Greg got married on a drizzly April day in 2013, near Greg's hometown of Nanaimo, British Columbia. Thanks to the abundance of greenery at hand, most of the decor — like the beautiful, fern-covered trellis — was hand-sourced by family members. Looks like family helped out in a big way throughout the wedding: Greg's mom not only made the couple's cake, but also Greg's stunning, traditional Japanese ensemble. I adore the fact that he used a book to put it on correctly.
As amazing as Greg looked, don't forget to check out Kat. Girl has a tattoo sleeve that is jaw-dropping. She showed it off with a dress in her favorite color, green.
When the bride and her sister make eight hardcore Victorian-inspired outfits for the wedding, you know this is serious-business history love.

Wait until you hear what the bride did with her antique ring!
What is it about red hair and green dresses that is just so delicious? When I saw Clare's emerald-green, tea-length wedding dress, I wanted to know aaaalll the details. She and Ian got married in Tunbridge Wells last February, and Clare rocked an ensemble custom made by Chrissie Nicholson-Wild from Curve Couture. She topped off the look with some family heirloom jewelry, a bolero from a Facebook group, and custom-made, sparkly high heels.
Where are my British brides at? Y'all might want to take a close look.
Kilts, handmade gowns, and a William Wallace sword — it's the Braveheart-themed wedding of your fantasy-filled dreams! Two days, a nighttime "secret ceremony," and The Texas Ren Fest makes for a an awesome time. And since these two are Army vets, it made perfect sense to have the wedding on Veteran's Day.
Nothing says a challenge like combining two families into a mega-project-management wedding! But this wedding in the middle of a combined family Thanksgiving is nothing if not a great example of loving collaboration. Add in the mossy forest-inspired decor, the Wai-Ching dress, and the HUGE origami crane "arch," and you'll be a convert into the communal wedding planning way of life.
Warm sand, colorful flowers in the bride's hair, and super sweet gazing going on at the ceremony — we are most definitely happy campers looking at this Hawaii beach wedding. The couple's mothers took turns beating down the piñata, the barbecue was cooking, and everyone was basking in the aloha. Oh, and the hilarious brawl over the bouquet is totally worth a look.
This wedding has all the D's: an awesome dog, a handmade dress, art gallery-style personalized decor, and a focus on disability. The pair also came up with a very cool way to combine their two families in a musical way. Oh, and just try to contain your FEELS when you hear what the bride's dad pulled out during his speech.
