A grand mosaic art-piece venue, Mexican vegan menu, a swing-y retro dress, and some Curious George — this is one visually stimulating wedding! Rain may have added some last-minute scrambling, but when you see it, you'll know it was worth it. And don't miss the sand mishap in the unity ceremony!

There is just SOOO much gorgeousness here from Raina and Ryan's Atlantic City wedding last January. I just love the look of tons of tattoos against a really elaborate dress, don't you? Look out for Raina's silver dress with that incredible train, the wedding party's black fairy wings with their amazing, pleated skirts, and the bride's knock-out makeup.
An backyard engagement pool party becomes a surprise wedding complete with the couple quite literally taking the plunge after they got married! Some friends may have had to pick their jaws up off the floor, but it was a wild surprise wedding ride that made for a low budget, high fun day.
If you can resist the lure of this bride's black shimmery mermaid dress, you are stronger than we are. A vision in black, teal, and red, she slays us with her style. Add that to the sexy groom, 1930s circus theme, and pseudo-elopement strategy, and you'll be ready to marry these two yourself. Plus, if you're dealing with photo insecurity, this bride knows how to shut it down and embrace your awesomeness!
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!
Warm sand, colorful flowers in the bride's hair, and super sweet gazing going on at the ceremony — we are most definitely happy campers looking at this Hawaii beach wedding. The couple's mothers took turns beating down the piñata, the barbecue was cooking, and everyone was basking in the aloha. Oh, and the hilarious brawl over the bouquet is totally worth a look.
This pair wanted to celebrate their faith, their family tartans, and their EPIC Scottish clifftop scenery. They had handmade tush cushions for sitting on the rocks, kilts and tails, and a really good way to mingle AND thank you guests after the ceremony. Plus, you'll love the way they handled some objections to their wedding planning choices.
If you're in the mood for GIANT crepe paper flower bouquets, a sweet and impromptu first look, and a couple super obviously and deliriously in love, then this wedding is your jam. Oh, and this bride's experience with a day-of coordinator (who we know well!), is invaluable. And you'll love the song that they kind-sorta accidentally danced to for their first dance!
Who says you can't have a romantic wedding surrounded by Frankenstein, The Elephant Man, and a haunted 1920s vibe? Harnessing the powers of officiant Rev D and pulling out some super chic '20s fashion, these two had a funny, scary, and personal party with their nearest and dearest.
