This couple wanted a super fun party at a bar with karaoke, a Bloody Mary bar, and even a unity tiki torch. They may have had to change their venue at the last moment, but with the help of friends, it was even better than expected. And if they were worried about guests being too shy to sing karaoke, boy were they wrong!

A gearhead groom and a non-traditional bride find common ground with a vintage-style bus to transport their guests from a sweet garden tea to a raucous bar after party. They totally recommend using alternative "non-wedding" vendors and finding DIY projects online, and it worked for them!
This pair traverses a limited guest list, interfaith considerations, and late-night loud music ordinances. But you'd never be able to tell that there were any hurdles by everyone's faces. Though they ran into some rough patches with major wind and some staff turnover at their venue, their positive attitudes are models for peaceful planning!
Rockabilly can be a great equalizer among generations. This pair took advantage of that and crafted a sweet little 1950s-style soiree that everyone could enjoy. Even grandpa ended up with temporary tattoos all over his noggin. Add in paper retro car centerpieces, a mini juke box, some sliders and bottled soda, and the party's made.
This couple wanted their wedding to be fun-loving and quirky to match their personalities. Cue the trek into grandma's attic for awesomely vintage accessories and decor. The groom's artistic talent definitely worked in their favor too. Add in a vegan Mexican feast and their English Bulldog and you've got a backyard wedding with charm.
Jay and Michelle are psyched to be hitched and the fist pump seals the deal. This Monday Montage is chock full of happy-sappy lovers. Plus, a sweet daddy/daughter duet, a chatty pooch, and a glowing Hello Kitty cake. Hopefully this makes your Monday a little more grin-worthy.
This pair is a self-described June and Ward Cleaver queer couple, which is just rad. The wedding itself mirrored this with its 1950s-style traditional vows and style. They also found time to sneak off during the reception for a little alone time, which was not missed by the hooting and hollering crowd.
I'm going on 300 weddings edited and this is the FIRST French wedding I've done! In fact, we haven't seen one in over two years. But when it finally came around, it came around with a bang. You will love this adorable couple, their rainbow-tastic details, geeky references, funky dancing, and ingenious use of the Tribe to get to vendors they wouldn't otherwise have access to in France.
Take some noisemakers, fortune telling fish, wax lips and mustaches, oversized eyeglasses, and a temporary tattoo booth and you'll have an awesome way to distract your guests from making a big scene when you're a shy couple. Plus, SO MUCH FUN. This couple definitely knows how to throw a good party that is true to their needs.
