This philanthropic pair made sure that everyone from their esteemed colleagues to their artistic and genealogically-inclined friends had something awesome to do besides dancing at their reception. Add that to their spectacular venue and vintage Caddy ambulance getaway car, and you'll be in love. Oh, and get your hankies for the father/daughter dance photo!

This Alice in Wonderland-inspired wedding is full of rich red, black, and white details in a gorgeous garden setting. We're talking silver teapots, flowers planted in barrels, flowers in glass lights, and basically every rose-covered dream we've ever had. And don't miss everyone dancing into the reception!
Pink details and crystal bling meets castles and Cthulhu. Add in some traditional elements and a bit of Game of Thrones, and you've got a crafty, DIYed wedding to make everyone have a good ol' time. And then there's "Shenanigans Box" and a Stay-Puft Marshmallow man with which to contend. We may not make it out of here, but we'll go down dancing!
When life throws you lemons, you make delicious intimate wedding lemonade! This pair was planning a larger wedding, but we love the results of their change-of-plans: a chic restaurant, 15 of their nearest and dearest, and a funny moment during the ceremony.
First we've got midway games, fire performances, and balloon animals. Then there's an underground cold war museum bunker, Fallout-themed decor, and post-apocalyptic catering. It's a fusion of carnival and the apocalypse that we can totally get behind! That doesn't even cover the fabulously redesigned heirloom dress and 3D-printed rings. And just wait until you see what happened with the helicopter ring delivery.
If you're a fan of the '90s television show Twin Peaks, this wedding will totally get you jonesing to marathon it! The couple had ceremony readings from the show, a "Miss Twin Peaks" photo booth backdrop, Double R Diner coffee cups, and a replica of Dale Cooper's tape recorder. You'll also flip for the bride's red crinoline and gorgeous cocktail hat!
After seeing this wedding, there is no way we all won't be in the mood for Mexican food and a full-on fiesta — which is exactly what this wedding entails. Papel picado, an awesome Mexican restaurant, and tons of DIYed decor worthy of the event make this colorful shindig a stunner. Add in the gorgeous vintage-style chapel and sweet mother/daughter impromptu dance, and you'll be in love with this love.
We know that our brides run the gamut on how much they want to be involved in the wedding planning. This bride took it one step further and let her mom plan 99% of it! And their personalities totally shined through in their gamer geek music choices, colorful monster details (including Frankenstein shoes!), and choices in board games for the reception.
Hula hoops, foosball, and roller skates… oh my! This is one game-happy Halloween wedding. Add in the chic lollipop bouquet, the sequined shoes, and the bedazzled pumpkins, and it's a pretty gorgeous wedding, too. Plus, you'll never guess who convinced the couple to embrace the Halloween theme.
This bride's custom-made cobalt blue Victorian dress steals our hearts, and the rustic, forest-y details take the rest. Non-matching bridesmaids in white, a fabulous ceremony gazebo, and so much ambiance. Oh, and wait until you hear the story the groom told in his speech. Let's just say it had something to with self-tanner.
