Brian and Rebecca opted for a small wedding in Philadelphia last November. They had no wedding party, and a friend MCed their self-uniting ceremony. Sounds quite cozy and intimate, yes? Prepare yourself to be blown away by the awesomeness that was their reception. Guests ate dinner from tiny white takeout boxes — complete with chopsticks — before belting out karaoke alongside Brian and Rebecca all night long.

When a Stormtrooper walks you down the aisle and Darth Vader is the flower girl, you know you're in for something geektastically awesome. Add in the video game details, the epic costume party, and the amazingly colorful reception dress, and it's on like Donkey Kong. Oh, and wait until you see their lightsaber candle ceremony!
A grand mosaic art-piece venue, Mexican vegan menu, a swing-y retro dress, and some Curious George — this is one visually stimulating wedding! Rain may have added some last-minute scrambling, but when you see it, you'll know it was worth it. And don't miss the sand mishap in the unity ceremony!
You may have already seen the sneak peek of this wedding's head-shrinkingly amazing Beetlejuice decor, but you haven't seen anything yet! In addition to the sand worms, Handbooks of the Recently Deceased, and the sculptures from the movie. There were silly vows, a sweet father/daughter dance, and of course, the amazingly accurate Beetlejuice officiant that would give Michael Keaton a run for his money!
Serge and Ely wed in Pennsylvania at the Abington Art Center, which proved to be a most excellent backdrop for their vintage and goth-friendly wedding day. The bridesmaids were decked out in mismatched purple gowns, the groomsmen (and officiant!) donned top hats, and an adorable owl and beaver topped their cake. If you're a fan of costumes, you'll totally dig the unicorn mask that the bride and groom took turns wearing during the reception. Thanks to Offbeat Bride vendor Fun and Funky Wedding Photography for sending these our way!
We're on a boat for this one, folks, and the trip is well worth it. We've got two fabulous gowns, a groom styled after a dapper character from Rock Band, groomsmen dancing to the Power Rangers theme, and the sweetest ceremony reading story EVER. Oh, and just try not to be jealous of the unplanned fireworks show during the reception!
This wedding will have a lot of fans: kids, chickens, color lovers, singers, and of course…. US! You've got hymn singing, Indian food, and what I'm going to excitedly describe as a Nickelodeon slime unity ceremony! It's all wrapped up in a big ol' barn in pretty sunset land. Just watch out for the bride's dad and uncle lighting the fireworks with a blow torch. Dudes got wild.
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…
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 one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a pair with a penchant for books, comics, and of course, the 10th Doctor! The groom even wore his signature suit. They both wore Chucks, carried Sonic Screwdrivers, and had a lovely handfasting to boot.
