Lindsay and Arthur met in New York but originally hail from Arizona, so these two had a whole bunch of influences and passions to bring to their wedding at Williamsburg's City Reliquary Museum. Arthur took cowboy chic to the next level with his turquoise-and-scorpion-encrusted Western Bolo tie, while Lindsay rocked her above-the-knee length off-white chevron patterned dress.

Retro video game photo booth props, a Mario cake, Plants Vs. Zombies cupcakes, and a chic gastropub in New York City… it's a GAYmer wedding gone sophisticated!

Get your achievement by clicking on this wedding and finding all the adorable gamer details.
I can't stop staring at the images from New Jersey-based wedding photographer Dennis Pike. Seriously, if I hadn't seen his blog posts full of real wedding pics, I would have sworn these were stylized shoots. Our sponsor Dennis Pike takes some of the most beautiful wedding photos totally on-the-fly, and he could do the same for your wedding. But first, you won't believe some of these images…
This pair brings the house down at their huge wedding with live bands, sci fi details (including an amazing photo booth!), gorgeous music hall venue, and even a Klingon love poem at the ceremony. PLUS, the groom planned the wedding himself and has the battle scars to prove it. Check out this space age dance party in Brooklyn.
We love us some rockabilly, and we also love it when there's a chic tulle headpiece, flash tattoo decor, a squee-worthy first dance, and our own Rev. D presiding! And you'll love the traditional Polish-Slovak bridal dance that made the groom prove he will move mountains (of people!) to get to his bride.

These LARPing, role-playing cuties wanted a Renaissance Faire wedding, but had to swap to a venue that was closer to the airport for out-of-towners. But they still totally rocked their Ren Faire flair with dragon goblets, fantasy-themed tables, D20 candy favors, and a foam sword arch (that totally surprised the groom!). Come all ye who seek fantasy and mischief! Just make sure you read their biggest challenge — it'll put everything into perspective.
You might recognize our sponsor The Reverend D (the fabulous lady in the middle) as the bride from DonnaMarie & Ricky's unholy union and heavy metal cabaret wedding.
