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!

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!
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.
Lindsay and Arthur met in New York but originally hail from Arizona, so these two had a whole bunch of influences and passions to bring to their wedding at Williamsburg's City Reliquary Museum. Arthur took cowboy chic to the next level with his turquoise-and-scorpion-encrusted Western Bolo tie, while Lindsay rocked her above-the-knee length off-white chevron patterned dress.
This wedding is a pretty easy sell: they had a BEER UNICORN! And vodka slushies! And ocotopus and mustache dresses! And tentacle fingers! And animal centerpieces! And the Cliffs of Insanity! We're dropping-our-pants-happy about this Texas-meets-Ireland wedding. It's too much — go on without us and enjoy!
Dayna and Jason's Colorado wedding had so much going for it: Dayna's short and sweet dress, Jason's Boston tie, their walk down the aisle together, the amphitheater setting with a view we can't even handle right now, and GRATUITOUS DOGGY SHOTS! This pooch is walking down the aisle, front-and-center at the ceremony, and then falling asleep in the middle. We are bowled over with cuteness. Then it's on to the reception where there's carb-loading and robin's egg centerpieces.
Small, affordable, a vacation (and total party!), and all rock 'n' roll? That's a wedding we can handle! Add in a fabulous red and black vintage dress, some first-time parasailing, and some barefoot on the beach vows, and you'll be ready to sink your own feet in this wedding sand. Even a last-minute date change couldn't squash the fun.
Cullie and Chris recently eloped at the Beverly Hills Courthouse with a celebration that placed a lot of emphasis on YELLOW and we're talking everything from the groom's tie to the bride's roses and carnations! Chris is a collector of graffiti art, and after the ceremony the couple wandered around West Hollywood to take photos against many of the area's fantastically-colored walls.
Only a few weeks to prepare, only room for 12 guests… how can they make this work?! Oh, they so did. The small guest list totally fit this introverted couple's preferences, and the intimate space amid the hustle and bustle of a renaissance fest was fabulously adorable. Add in some Harry Potter colors (Ravenclaws represent!), an "Always" necklace, and "Mischief Managed" rings, and you've got the recipe to brew up a love potion for us all.
There is so much SWEET, sweet goodness in this wedding! Looking for a dancing astronaut? Here you go! Want to see a bride dressed as Little Red Riding Hood while being escorted by a wolf? Right here. There are also skull cake toppers, red polka-dot flats, and centerpieces featuring posts from various horror movies (including The Shining). Basically: it's a creeptastic Halloween wedding dreamscape.
We love this bride's black, lacy dress, the couple's totally stress-avoiding attitude, cake-cutting "grr" faces, and super awesome wedding party photo picnic idea. And for any of you dealing with hassles about losing weight for the wedding, this bride's rational and kick-ass method for dealing with it is a MUST-READ.
