A second marriage = a second chance to craft a wedding that's totally you, right? Well this pair combined an outdoorsy winter theme with Bavarian food and style for a magical, wintry, totally cozy wedding. Do not miss the horse-drawn carriage, the red hearts theme (including on the bride's ring finger!), and the nom-worthy food list!

The historic 1800s house with wrap-around porch, the custom-made Victorian-style dress, the handmade touches… this is a wedding to just sink into like a lavender-scented bath. Tie on your corset and get into the historical vibe with this fabulous Victorian-themed garden party.
Lin and Philip's wedding had one theme: ORANGE. The color dominated everything from their sneakers (yes, they both wore sneakers!) and wardrobe details to the candy-laden dessert table. Those aren't the only sweet details: Lin carried a bouquet made entirely from Dum Dums and Philip donned a boutonniere to match. Their dog Hannah served as a key player throughout the day, and a tarot reader performed a reading during the ceremony. Speaking of Hannah, wait until you see the super cute hands-and-paws family photo the three of them took during the reception.
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!
Let's see here: we've got a circus theme with a dog dressed as a lion, "boot-in-ears," a bearded lady, a carousel horse guestbook, a midway full of games, a flash mob ceremony, an after-party with a ball pit, and a footie pajama football brunch the next day. If you can even process all that awesome, you'll need to make even more room in your brain for the first dance surprise. Hint: a marching band was involved!
Four days of wedding fun is FUN. Four days of wedding fun is also PLANNING. This couple shared the duties for feeding, sheltering, and entertaining a lot of people, and it turned out to be a kick-ass time. They canoed in and out of the ceremony, shared amazing Washington views with friends and family, and even taught everyone to contra dance. Re-live your camp days with these cuties.
Our favorite member of the wedding party, the RING BEAR, returns! This time inside a space-y sci-fi-themed wedding in Seattle that includes sci-fi save-the-dates, Thai catering, and space grab bag favors. These high school sweethearts and their team of "Groundhoggers" totally know how to party (and awesomely get kicked out of the after party!).
Reusing, recycling, and a little dumpster diving totally made this wedding into a low-maintenance cleanup wonder with awesome DIY projects like a wine cork guest book, self-catered picnic noms, and jam jar lanterns. A custom-made dress and Prohibition Era attire made it super stylish on top of that! Add in the lush green ceremony space, and you'll be googly-eyed for this couple.
