Now that is some scenery. Ivana and Drejc's Slovenian wedding in the countryside makes me want to run singing about the hills being alive with music. The scenery seriously has me gob-smacked. And Ivana's ocean blue ballerina-style dress adds just the right amount of fluffy whimsy. Candles lit up Ivana's and Drejc's childhood photos and a huge bonfire lit the dance party afterwards. We are so psyched to have our first Slovenian wedding on the site.

Oh, to be a sandwich with these people. They are totally gorgeous and had an equally gorgeous elopement under a huge-mongous oak tree in New Orleans. Krysten chose the destination and planned the trip since she loves NOLA, and Chris wrote the ceremony himself. They wanted, in their own words, "simplicity and fiscal solvency," so eloping just made perfect sense. To get the ceremony under that majestic tree, a little smooth talking was in order with a gruff groundskeeper!
There were a few very sweet moments in this wedding: mom walking her daughter down the aisle, friends singing at the ceremony, and a rockin' band playing for their friends at the reception. I also can't forget to mention the gorgeous red and black details like the bride's shoes (matching her hair!), black crinoline, and flower clutch. It all ends up being a fabulous music-filled day.
High fives all around for this wedding! They started with a mission statement of sorts, and stuck to it with style. From the canned preserves favors to the beverage tickets to the treat-before-you-seat, this couple made their guests feel welcome to their new family.
Small and intimate weddings are often killer in that they let you focus on what and who really matters to you. This sweet and small wedding encapsulates that sentiment perfectly. They had a pre-wedding ring warming in their hometown in Texas and an eight-person ceremony and reception in San Francisco (which allowed the groom's mom to officiate!).
This pair wanted LEGO details, a cow cake, an amazing green dress, and a VW van that may or may not make it to its destination, and nobody was getting in the way of those awesome plans. There may have been some hesitation from the peanut gallery, but once everyone saw the results, it was hard to argue that a good time was in store. OH, and the bride's bow and veil headpiece might just have made it to the top of my favorites list.
What's a kick-ass way to arrive for your wedding at a bar? In a bitchin' party bus! This pair's rainbow of attendants (rockin' a rainbow of socks, btw) had to dash between a parade and a police presence to take photos at the park before heading to the bar for a funny little ceremony and deep dish pizza. Check out their alternative guest books, ticketed seating arrangements, and one flower girl's adorable pout.
Karissa and Jonas were married in Santa Barbara among rich colors and gorgeous murals. Karissa designed her own dress after a Coco Chanel design and coupled it with a 20-foot silk cape for her train. Other details included gold-dipped bird skull boutonnieres, a travel book where guests wrote well-wishes on their favorite locations, and a 1950s Chevy getaway car.
