Glitter, sparkle, and shimmer: a pink and gold Virginia wedding

If you've got a particular affinity for things that glitter, this wedding's for you! Being honest, I'm all over this one. Chauncey & BaShaun finally sealed a long-distance relationship with a sparkly pink and gold celebration in Virginia last March. From her gold shoes to his wedding day gift of a gold watch, the sparkle is everywhere. (Aw, check out the cute lil note accompanying the watch!)

Grab your wellies and stroll along a beach with this bride and groom

Jeff and Aiofe married each other last year on the British Columbia coast and frickin' brought the style. I mean, you have her bright blue (such an awesome color), mega-ruffled dress. And then he's wearing a cravat (always a good choice) with a matching pocket square. They looked cute just saying their vows, they looked cute jumping the broom, and they looked cute while romping through low tides with bridesmaids, and striking cover-worthy poses with groomsmen.

Jump the broom and smash the glass: this wedding is a cultural kaleidoscope

Say hello to a new photographer on our vendor list (hi, Amy Ann PhotographyThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them!) with this gorgeous LGBT wedding in Ohio. Tara and Tayo had married each other in Manhattan in early 2013, which they celebrated last fall with a mashup of Jewish and African-American traditions. The couple kept the initial part of the celebration small, with only a few loved ones around while they performed a handwashing and signed a ketubah. For the larger ceremony outside, guests faced first one way then the other as they listened to quotes from African-American authors and a traditional Jewish ceremony under a canopy.

Their Celtic, blue-moon wedding marked the 24th anniversary for these two brides

Dee and Deb had already been together for 24 years when they married each other in upstate New York on a literal blue moon. Time flies — this August will mark another two years since their wedding! The couple kept things very simple, purchasing rings, clothing, and a few items for the ceremony online. The ceremony itself looks fascinating, with rituals that involved sharing drinks from a chalice, a handfasting, and jumping the broom. Dee and Deb shared an intricate cake, showcasing phases of the moon, and a toast to cap the intimate occasion.

A love-heavy rainy day wedding in a New York barn

Rebecca and Meeka had to battle downpours throughout their entire wedding day, but even the most torrential rain couldn't stop them from smiling! The two held their ceremony in a barn decorated with animal skulls and rope, and cleverly used white roses to mark seats intended for family members. After jumping the broom, they moved on to the reception space, where plenty of dancing and toasting followed. If you still want more after looking at the photos, videographers Love Brain Films shared their wedding video right here. Get the tissues out! It's a good one.
