This wedding has beautiful DIY touches like sheet music wreaths, ceremony backdrop bunting, an adorable sweets table, and loads of super talented friendors. But it wasn't all cute touches and sentiment… there was also a zombie piñata, which revealed the groom's true feelings on them. And just wait until you see the sweet moments with the bride's father, too.

These two are children of the sixties, and what better way to celebrate the decade and their love of color than by having a TIE-DYE WEDDING? It's like a rainbow exploded and left everyone super happy and covered in color. They tossed tie-dyed bears, had a choreographed dance to their song (well, almost!), and tons of tie-dyed decor. Put on your shades for this one — it's wild!

This is a geektastic-meets-metal winner, you guys.
Pretzels, a German cup ceremony, and astronauts — what do these things have in common? If you said this locally-focused and low-impact wedding in a super eclectic venue, you were right.
