Shai and Crystal win at planning: they pulled off their backyard circus-themed wedding in under a month! Family and friends pitched in by building everything from the red-and-white striped tent to the colorful balloon arch. A parade of feathers, bubbles, and a tiny clown ring bearer led Crystal up the polka dot aisle, and guests tossed streamers into the air at the ceremony's conclusion. These two opted to use the time immediately following the ceremony to snag ice cream and take photos at a baseball park. The night was rounded out with Indian food and barbecue, followed by tie-dyed cupcakes and a skeleton-topped cake. Oh, and wait until you see the incredibly sexy shot of Shai getting ready… YOWZA.

  1. The clown ring bearer is SUPER cute!

    Everything is beautiful (overload for my eyes!) and Crystal's henna is amazing too.

  2. Good gracious! That dress and her hair are stunning! This whole wedding is packed full of win. I love it.
