Bagpipes, redwoods, and fiddles at this Big Sur Pi Day wedding

We love seeing couples get married on Pi Day, but Jeanne and Nick took it one step further and had the ceremony begin at 1:59, making their anniversary an even longer form of the abridged number: 3.14159! Jeanne walked in to bagpipes and let her fab Black Milk leggings peek out as she walked toward the ceremony. And then we got to see the first of many photos of Nick’s expression that make me swoon.

KB & Fran’s eco Celtic “goyish gay” wedding

The bagpipes, the flowers, the tartan, the grins — this wedding is an eco-celtic dreamland. Their handfasting ceremony was officiated by a dear friend — from her smartphone — and wait till you see who joined the band onstage!

Kathleen & Lucky’s traditional 1950s wedding

This pair is a self-described June and Ward Cleaver queer couple, which is just rad. The wedding itself mirrored this with its 1950s-style traditional vows and style. They also found time to sneak off during the reception for a little alone time, which was not missed by the hooting and hollering crowd.

Angela & Patrick’s romantic Moulin Rouge-inspired wedding

Inspired by the theater scenes in Moulin Rouge, this pair combined the romance and the setting of the film with their Irish heritage in the ceremony and attire. A bagpiper, some Jones Soda, and a Hollywood screen kiss to remember make this a fabulous party.

Maureen & Derek’s Scottish humanist two-part wedding

This two-part wedding had an intimate humanist ceremony followed by amazing seafood at a local restaurant and then a cracking ceilidh for the rest of the guests the next day. Though there were some hiccups with the liquor license, this wild bunch still managed to leave some blood on the dance floor from the “dance of death!” Wild, woolly, and amazing. Would you want it any other way?

Claire & Stevie’s Sydney meets Edinburgh garden wedding

A garden ceremony and beautiful old world stables make for a major statement, especially when you’ve never seen the venue and are planning it from across the world. These two somehow managed to craft an amazing Scottish party from all the way in Australia. Oh, and you might want to see how the bride managed to create her fantastic skirt and blouse combination. Black tulle and white ruffles… I die.
