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!

Add in their classy "Best Day Ever" cake, funky decor at the restaurant, and requisite rings-on-pizza-slice shot, and you've got a deliciously fab tiny wedding…

High fantasy meets a handmade gown at this treehouse camp wedding

Tierra and Bradley got married at The Treehouse Camp at Maple Tree Campground, a Maryland venue with an ACTUAL HOBBIT HOLE. The guests came in fabulous garb, but nothing compares to the bride's gown that she designed her damn self. She bought the amazing corset and then crafted the leaf-adorned tulle skirt to match. Bradley channeled hobbits with this outfit and acorn boutonniere. Plus, there was a hooded cloak involved which we very much dig. Don't miss the hawk delivering the rings!
