DIY for days at this adorable vintage comic book wedding

Zach has always been a lover of comic books, and as long as we have been together (seven years!) we've always known that we wanted to have a comic book themed-wedding. I am a huge lover of vintage style, so it made sense to merge the two into a huge party of comic book awesomeness. Having a vintage aesthetic also helped to ensure that our decorations wouldn't be too child-like (we definitely had to tow a fine line with that!) and give our day an old-fashioned feel.

When a rustic forest wedding met red, black, and metal

When we got engaged, we knew we didn't want a typical wedding. Instead, we wanted to incorporate some of the wonderful things we enjoy together into an expression of our love. We picked black and burgundy as our colors to match our dark aesthetic. For my bridal look, I wanted to go high drama. I ditched the white dress and found an asymmetrical wine-colored dress and, with my bridesmaid Haley, built a one-of-a-kind elk antler headdress so I could look like a pagan forest goddess.

This intimate French-American wedding of two pilots had an unforgettable ceremony entrance

Kim and Jeremy are both small craft pilots who own and fly their own WWII bombers, as well as Cessnas and other aircraft. They train others, too. Kim arrived at their ceremony (in a friend's hanger done up for the day!) by driving down an airstrip in a Cessna plane. All the draping in the hanger was antique parachute silk. You've got to see this stellar French-American pilot wedding…

This Liverpool Harry Potter wedding had a black wedding dress, 8-foot marauders map, & wand duel

Jenny and Liam are major Potterphiles and wanted to inject some Harry Potter magic into their Liverpool, UK wedding. Jenny in particular was super resourceful during planning. She found her gorgeous black gown at a prom dress store and sourced tons of their vendors through Facebook, Etsy, and small businesses. Plus, there was a ton of DIY (with no real magic to help!) including handmade wand favors and loads of house colors and Hogwarts details.

Don't miss their ultra magical place setting map — an 8-foot long Marauder's Map, painstakingly hand-drawn by a close frien

Mardi Gras meets Chicago at this stunning donuts and dogs wedding

Rescue dogs and donuts! Our wedding had modern and vintage touches but no clear "theme" other than Our Favorite Things. Rescue dogs, donuts, pizza, New Orleans, Chicago, and each other. We wanted our wedding to "feel like us" and it sure did. Our dog is a rescue and I am on the board of a local rescue, so we had lots of references to the dog and organization throughout the day, from the sweatshirts the girls got ready in to our specialty cocktail. We're a modern couple of blended religious backgrounds so we decided our wedding was the perfect event to set the tone for a life of unapologetic joy.
