Love + intention: a Wiccan park wedding with a breastfeeding baby as the "bouquet"

I’m a witch, my husband is not. He knows now after being with me this long that I care a great deal about ritual, intention, and love. So, we set out to do everything by hand. We braided our own handfasting rope, we decorated our broom together, we brewed mead together, we painted and created our whole twelve (12!) invitations together. During anything we did, we lit a red candle, and we would hush to each other about love. We would declare our intent.

This May the Fourth wedding had dancing storm troopers, original art, & a killer black dress

hen May the 4th falls on a weekend, you know there will be some choice Star Wars-influenced weddings to be seen. But Tiffany and Kyle's epic Star Wars wedding takes the Wookiee cookies.

A retro music festival-style tent village wedding with four dresses & a eye-popping headpiece

We're both (loveable) weirdos so we wanted our wedding to truly reflect who we were. My favourite highlights that I think achieved this were: my 5m maypole, our rock-paper-scissor vows, our pirate celebrant, the giant Soul Train dance line we had with all 200 guests coming down in pairs, our very silly first dance to Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On," my dancing down the aisle to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," my four wardrobe changes, our gong for speeches, and so much more.

A Mexican jungle oasis awaits at this intimate cenote wedding in Riviera Maya

Silvia and Luca met when they were young age but knew they wanted to walk through life together. After seven years together, they made it official with an intimate cenote wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. They brought their favorite people to Mexico (all the way from Italy!) and packed the essentials for a simple and meaningful wedding day in the middle of the Mayan jungle. Don't miss Silvia's gorgeous beachy dress, the saxaphone-accompanied ceremony, and of course, the lush jungle backdrop.
