Traditional Romanian Orthodox meets LA party at this art deco wedding

In Romania, we kept the ceremony traditional, which is itself offbeat because it’s like a time capsule — orthodox traditions reminded me of this year’s Met Gala. For the LA party, I wanted all local greens: palms to match the invites (and bridesbabes getting-ready outfits!) and succulent gold terrariums and little vases that doubled as favors. I wanted my 12 bridesmaids to pick their own dresses. The only rules were to pick a metallic or navy blue outfit they would love.

Let's set the scene: a bride in black, a groom in shorts, a frolic in a cemetery, their cat in a tux, groomsmen in tux t-shirts, festivities at an RV park, music fest-style family jam sessions, grandmas palm reading, skeleton flamingos, catering from In-n-Out(!), and an excess of love. Have I got your attention yet?

Don't miss the skelly flamingos, mismatched bridesmaids, giant chess set, and epic bonfire late into the night…

A creative mountain wedding at Zorthian Ranch (with a handmade dress!)

Jon and Jenny are both creatives, and they wanted a hip but relaxed wedding with their closest family and friends. They chose the Zorthian Ranch, which is known for it's offbeat artist community built by a local Altadena artist.

They had a ton of DIY elements to their creative mountain wedding. Jenny made both her dress AND Jon's suit. She also made their wedding pie! Do not miss the hot pink and black floral dress, the chic and simple details, and the gorgeous pie display…

Two gamers tie the knot at a Zelda forest-themed wedding

Courtney and Brian share a love of nerding out with video games, so a Legend of Zelda forest-themed wedding at Ramekins in Sonoma, California was the order of the day. They ran into some issues with rain and weren't sure if their outdoor wedding was going to go as planned. Thankfully, the rain stopped long to get mostly through the wedding.

Then it was gaming, dancing, and eating some fab birch-themed cake! Let's peek at this geektastic meets elegant wedding…
