Elise and Dick are big fans of Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Battlestar Galactica. They wove their fandoms into a delightfully geeky tapestry, including decorating in Lannister red and yellow, hanging banners with iconography from the films and TV shows, and using blue and purple dragons as tabletop decor. Elise even donned a knee-length Lannister red wedding gown!

Red and blue and DIY all over — these two ladies know how to throw a stylish and entertaining wedding! They included all of their talented community — performers and bakers alike — and their tribute to what their specific type of marriage means to them is tear-inducing and spot-on. And you MUST see one of the bride's mom's awesome, newly acquired aerialist skills! She's one bad-ass mother.
Meg and RJ planned an Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding at Gum Gully Farm, a rustic wedding venue in Melbourne, Australia, that plays host to a delightful collection of wildlife. In fact, a certain goat on the farm played a pretty central part in creating a pretty hilarious Brady Bunch-style wedding party photo!
We previewed this couple's AMAZING neon bicycle part centerpieces before, but little did we know that we'd also get to see an acrobatic silks performance, an amazingly visual contrast with the venue (that we love!), and even more photos of the centerpiece works of art! Come look and see the neon splendor!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish in one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got an all-era time travel costume wedding! Think amazing decor (including light-up centerpieces!), a chihuahua in a dress, and a mysterious Time Lord officiant coming out of the smoke! This theatrical pair KNOWS how to throw a multi-talented party.
When a crocodile invites himself to the wedding, you pretty much have to show him a good time… or else! And these two totally did that with their South African dishes and Amarula, the bride's awesome gossamer wings, the Harry Potter ring book, and the sweet wine box ceremony. Check out the rest of the wedding and keep an eye out for various fauna that might be on the loose.
Are you thinking, "What is this incredibly awesome thing?" You are looking at a handmade wedding centerpiece from Kelley and Mitch's wedding that was uploaded to our Flickr pool. In fact, all of Kelley and Mitch's wedding centerpieces where hand-made by them… out of bicycle parts.
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 two put a lot of thought into every aspect of the day — they designed their own outfits (including modifying purchased items when they couldn't find what they were looking for) and combined their design and computing skills to create the bespoke invitations, stationery, and a website to match the theme. Adam's mum and best man designed the centerpieces, and the pair had some of Adelina's family's old jewelry redesigned into unique wedding bands with a never-ending vine engraved on them. I LOVE!
