Elegance meets dark romance at this Sydney goth chic wedding

Amy and Andrew planned their stunningly elegant goth chic wedding at Villa Capri in Sydney, New South Wales with the most gorgeous black lace gown, candles, red and white details, caramel corn favors, and loveliness everywhere. Amy was never a traditional person — she is covered in tattoos and white was never for her, so she chose elements from dresses she liked and worked with the designer to make her dream, modern black dress. Their wedding was styled by the amazing wedding stylist, Anna Wang, creating a palette full of blacks, reds, and orange-glow candles.

Piñatas, tacos, & cascarones at this Mexican-inspired DIY wedding in Chicago

Steph and David wanted their wedding guests to feel like they were attending a party in their home. Steph made a piñata for the card box, cascarones (Mexican confetti bombs!) to throw after the ceremony, and a ton of fun table decor. Don't miss the taco bar, pies and paletas for dessert, some serious dancing and video games, and, of course, piñatas. Steph and David had custom piñatas made to represent them: a cat for Steph and a dinosaur for David. Almost too cute to break!

Let's hear from Steph about how it all came together…
