Ember & Andrew's Mario Bros. meets Star Wars game store wedding

A Star Wars Sand Trooper, Mario mushrooms, and some retro styles all in the couple's favorite game store — this is one geeky fabulous wedding. Wait until you get a load of the homemade Kransekake, their first dance story, and the bride's lacey vintage-styled dress. Oh, and you'll get a kick out of what the groom did with their Mario cake!

Find a hot pink wig and join the crowd at this Seattle wedding

As a bit of playful revenge for having to wear a natural-colored wig at her maid of honor's wedding, Dani had her wedding party (including the bridesman) rock hot-pink wigs to match her hair. The wedding party nailed the look, even though it looks like it was a super windy day! Dani and Rob got married at Gas Works Park in Seattle last July, and you'll find that delicious hot pink everywhere in their photos: bowties, guests' shoes, feathery bouquets, and all over the reception.

Jade & Jonathan's down-to-earth backyard wedding

A painted mailbox, an adorably awkward bride/grandfather walk down the aisle, and a top-your-own doughnut bar — oh hell yeah, this wedding is Fun City. This wedding also has one of the funniest moments we've read about in awhile. Let's just say there was a really big mix-up in locations.

The goth glam sizzles at this Washington barn wedding

Cannot believe that Nicole and Darin got married in May because this is spooky fall glam at its best. The couple got married at the Pickering Barn last year, bringing the goth style with panache. There's so much dark glamour to love here: Nicole's black dress, her fingerless lace gloves, that amazing short haircut. I also might have included rather a lot of portraits of Darin because I cannot get over his sizzlingly somber makeup. Have a photo of a groom applying his own eyeliner before his wedding. Go on, have two.

Amanda & Lee's knights and dragons colorful fairy tale wedding

If you're still reading this and haven't already clicked to see more of the fabulous red dress, dapper white suit, and DRAGON HEADPIECE, there's more to see in this white-knight-marries-a-lovely-dragon wedding. We're talking handmade dragon wings, light-up leather bouquets, Magic: the Gathering rings, Frozen karaoke, and a Mario Kart shell toss. If that doesn't get you, nothing will!

Lara & Hunter's tea party wedding with feathers and hats

Teapots, cucumber sandwiches, and cake on the best man's face? It's a tea party wedding turned upside down. Add in fancy hats, a retro venue, and a wild dance party, and you've got this sweet little wedding in Washington. And when it comes to this bride's hat, there was nothing to do but put a bird on it!

Liza & Kyle's rustic Scandinavian-inspired wedding

Give us a rustic venue and gorgeous flowers any day. But add in some Wiccan and Scandanavian handfasting details, awesome rustic and mustache-y decor, and some Vengaboys(!) and we're smitten. Take a peek at this wedding for some sweet silliness and good old fashioned fun.

Andreas & Ariel's island hippie/raver forest freak-fest (10th anniversary flashback!)

10 years ago today, the wedding that ultimately kicked off the whole weird world that is Offbeat Bride happened. On August 7th 2004, I married Andreas. Then I wrote a book about it. Then I launched a website about the book, and now here we are. To celebrate, I figured I'd fill out a wedding profile myself. If these pics make you curious, you can get the Offbeat Bride book on Amazon for like 50 cents.

This time we've got two actors who fell in love on the stage and wanted to celebrate it superhero-style. Get ready for singing and dancing bridesmaids, a whole lotta Hanson music, and the return of… THE UNITY SANDWICH!
