Two families become one at this intimate microwedding in Chicago

Dora and Joel were married in Chicago. They originally planned on getting married in Hawaii, but with one daughter about to leave for the military and another about to leave for college, they decided to move their wedding date up and do it in a new shmancy hotel in the Wicker Park neighborhood, The Robey Hotel.

They were married on the top floor with great views and a little rain. Thankfully, their brilliant smiles and Dora's gorgeous dress kept the day shining and lovely. Immerse yourself in this intimate microwedding that blended two families…

Don't miss the faux hawk at this ultra beautiful DIYed wedding

Ria and Will are both tax lawyers so their wedding day was infused with lawyer jokes, beginning with their hashtag, #filingjointly. Ria also has a daring but soft side, so her hair was swept up in an amazing faux-hawk. She finished the look with her signature hot pink lipstick and vintage jewelry.

Ria went wild with DIY including the cake (a spice cake with cream cheese icing!), handcrafted invitations, dried floral bouquets, and amazing centerpieces. She painted every wooden flower and picked every vintage tea cup for the tables. It was an event full of love, humor, and tons of artistry.

A fantastical villainous Candyland sideshow music fest wedding

My husband and I live in and run a House Of Oddities Museum in Pittsburgh called Trundle Manor. We’re used to being surrounded by vintage taxidermy, dead things floating in jars, coffins, and our own art, so the wedding had to be grand enough and weird enough to suit us.

Our wedding cake was a zombified Marie Antoinette head festooned with feathers and candy! It sat alongside our faux wedding cake topped with the taxidermied squirrels we made on our first date in the basement.
