Africa meets North America at this gorgeous Ghanaian wedding reception in Maryland

Billy and Jenny actually got married in Ghana a few years ago, but between Billy living in Ghana and Jenny getting her PhD, there wasn’t much time to celebrate here in the States. Their wedding celebration day changed all of that. They invited a few of their closest friends and family here in the U.S. to the beautiful Glenview Mansion in Rockville for dinner, photos, art gallery views, and dancing. Just wait until you see Jenny's fab multicolored dress!

Cultures merge at this Quaker ceremony meets Mexican fiesta wedding

Nora and Paco had a Quaker meets Mexico wedding at the school where Nora's parents worked. Nora comes from Quaker roots and Paco was born and raised in Mexico, so the blend of these traditions was so interesting to see unfold. There was a traditional Quaker ceremony followed by a surprise Mariachi band that led guests to a Mexican fiesta complete with a fab taco bar and music. Once the Mariachi band departed, a folk band came in to lead everyone in traditional square dancing.

Bookworms and gamer girls marry in style in New York

We wanted the wedding to have vintage/library feel. Our escort cards were library due date cards and the centerpieces were books on the bottom with a lamp on top from IKEA. We came up with the decoration for everything and kept the tables as exposed woods to bring the vintage feel out — the venue sold itself! We placed books on the fireplace mantle and above all, since our wedding was also on Pride Day for NYC, we provided our guests with pride ribbons to wear upon arrival.
