A Houston wedding with a Frida Kahlo-inspired headpiece that SLAYS

A Houston artistic wedding with a Frida Kahlo-inspired headpiece that SLAYS

Candace and Onemena (aka Neemo) rocked an artistic wedding with influences of Frida Kahlo. There were beautiful and lush touches from Candace’s dress to the florals to the decor and fab cakes. Being a muralist herself, Candace had huge inspiration from Frida Kahlo for her beautiful floral head piece, and Thorn Floral brought it to life.

Just wait until you see the green lacy, painted goodness of her dress. Add that to her red floral crown and you’ll be blown away

Offbeat Bride interview about Renaissance weddings on NPR’s Here & Now and Houston Public Radio

As a lifelong Renaissance Faire goer, I always have a soft spot for Ren Faire and fantasy weddings, as evidenced by the abundance of them (13 pages!) in this archive.

We love to jam about wedding trends, so when Houston’s Public Radio and NPR’s Here & Now wanted to talk shop about geeky fantasy weddings and weddings at Ren Faires, we were so down.

This high-flying trapeze wedding is the greatest show on Earth

As if walking down the wedding aisle isn’t nerve wracking enough, these two did it 30 feet in the air on a high wire no wider than a human thumb. Mustafa and Anna have been performing with Ringling Bros. for the past six years. The two exchanged vows on the high wire where they met and fell in love, surrounded below by friends, family, and circus crew in a ceremony officiated by Ringmaster David Shipman who was ordained specifically for this wedding.

Is this high-flying trapeze wedding the greatest show on Earth? Let’s see! Oh, AND there’s a video for your ogling pleasure…

Hang on tight for dinosaur skellies, kitteh shoes, and a first dance under a T-Rex

You must see this Jewish wedding surrounded by dinosaurs at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Houston, Texas. Samantha and Matt are Californians originally from Houston, and they held their wedding in their home city. Things not to miss: the ceremony overlooking the dino skellies in the Paleontology Hall, the Charlotte Olympia cat shoes (cat ladies unite!), and the first dance underneath a T-Rex. The tablescapes were all different, with moss and grass in terrarium glass bells. You may drool over their macaron-covered cake, too.

Emma & Richard’s theater-meets-adorable-baby wedding

When you’re planning a wedding in a lovely theater and have a new baby, what better theme is there than to combine these two into a theater-loving, baby-adoring wedding? With “Mommy and Daddy are Getting Married” as the slogan, these two created Playbill programs, VIP place card lanyards, and sported their favorite accessory: their nine-month-old son!

Jenna & Scott’s dinos, Dorothy, and DeLoreans oh my! wedding

Dinos, Dorothy, and DeLoreans?! Yep, we’ve got an awesome natural history museum full of dinosaurs, ruby red Dorothy slippers, and Back to the Future in their trivia game. OH, and don’t let me forget the EPIC DeLorean cake! It will make your ’80s-loving day. Plus, you’ll love how they chose their wedding date. Spoiler: it was to make one of them right!
