Get starry-eyed with this creative DIY wedding in a historic Chicago park

Amanda and Melody tied the knot after almost ten years of being together. Melody is an artist so aesthetics were key. They chose a geode theme and iridescent color scheme for the wedding details and decor. Melody brought her creative touches to the handmade bow ties, boutonnieres and bouquets made from Palo Santo and colorful gem stones, and elaborate table settings featuring black candle sticks, geodes, and photos of the couple. They even built their own geode-like backdrop for the photo booth and a friend created a fabulous geode cake.

Mario Kart, an open mic, and an aisle walk through a fog machine(!) at this creative Chicago wedding

It was totally a collaboration between themselves and their creative guests. Whether it was an area where people could play cards, battle at Mario Kart, or a hilarious open mic, everyone was in their element.

Just wait until you see how the bride walked down the aisle through a fog machine!

Don't miss the stunning sequin gown at this mansion wedding in Illinois

Jana and Bryan celebrated their romantic wedding at the Allerton Park and Retreat Center in Monticello, Illinois. It's one of those classic venues with grand staircases, huge hedge walls, and a total majestic library feel that has us totally heart eyes. But what made it extra amazing was how they really took the details and made them their own. Case in point: Jana's FAB sequined gown and Bryan's custom blue suit.

A Star Wars meets A Christmas Carol queer disabled multi-state wedding (in a blizzard!)

When we started planning our wedding, we quickly realized that since our families were separated by many states (I was raised in the midwest, he's from Virginia), it was going to be a logistical nightmare for us to get everyone together in one spot, so we decided to honor both sides of our family by coming to them. So we planned two weddings, one in VA and another celebration in IL.

This intimate, queer state capitol wedding brought the perfect amount of rainbow magic

Megan and Bri met at a roller derby after party, spent the evening talking about My Little Pony, and everything just clicked from there. It was love. They love spending time together fishing, hiking, watching PBS, and playing games, or cuddling with their two kitties, Little and Georgia.

Their wedding was intimate, with just their two sets of parents, Bri's sister, and Megan's aunt, and was absolutely lovely. Megan's dad bought a rainbow umbrella in case of rain, and while it wasn't originally part of the plan, pretty much everyone in attendance had their picture taken with the umbrella, even their officiant, Judge Kloppenburg!
