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.
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 Whovian couple who got engaged while dressed as Doctor Who characters and wanted to tie that into their decor. Include some Gallifreyan script, some TARDIS blue, and a really fun idea for a guest book, and you've got this amazing winery wedding.
Leah and Heather were married on June 7th at Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope, PA, where the pair had one of their first dates and countless date nights after. Leah designed the place cards, table numbers, her bouquet, Heather's boutonniere, and the CD favors. But the best silver lining moment came when the intense storm going on caused a blackout at the reception!
With a fabulous green house and garden venue, bread baked in flower pots, and a bonfire with s'mores, what could possibly go wrong? Just a too-large guest list. So this pair decided on a family-only celebration with lots of DIYed and adorable log details that totally played off the rustic vibe of the venue. Plus, you'll love how the bride celebrates her departed dad and her three-generation ring photo.
Transformers references in the ceremony, library escort cards, LEGO mini-figs… it's like a geek's paradise up in these parts. But it's all wrapped up in meaningful rituals, EPIC fashion (check out the hats!), and a really good compromise between those who love to dance and those who love to chill. You'll want to steal these ideas, folks.
