Faith & Aaron's steampunk Muppet wedding with a touch of Stephen Colbert

This combination of themes may seem a little odd at first, but once you see it, you love it! We've got Stephen Colbert-inspired cue cards, spin drums, steamy Western/sci-fi garb (complete with ray guns), flame-powered centerpieces, and some sweet children's vows. You might also be inspired by their half public/half private vows, too. Oh, and wait until you see the faux "ink bleeder" pen made by the groom for the signing of the marriage certificate! Totally bad-ass.


Cara & Robert's born-and-bred NYC wedding

Checker cabs, pizza, and Italian ices: it's NYC, baby! This pair comes from traditional New York Italian families, so offbeat was definitely a new concept. But they managed to combine a zombie cake, Mr. Met, and late-night nosh with getting ready at the bride's childhood home and familiar wedding traditions. Plus, you'll love the bride's vows to her new stepchildren.


Jonna & Kelsey's garden party wedding with stepmom vows

This pair had a strange introduction, but it ended up being something pretty magical in the end. And it all led to this day full of garden party awesomeness, sweet vows to a new step-daughter (with matching custom necklaces!), and a genius way for introverts to avoid a receiving line! Oh, and get ready to LOL at the groom's steamer incident (photo included).


Karly & Steve's artsy and crafty upcycled wedding

A certain superstorm may have wreaked havoc in the days before this wedding, but they pulled it all together somehow with the help of friends (and a new "BYOC: Bring Your Own Cupcakes" clause!). We're really thankful they did, because we did not want to miss the amazing Wai-Ching dress, gorgeously-coiffed dreads, adorable family sand ceremony, and all of the DIY projects. Oh, let's not forget the Harry Potter-inspired saxophonist/magician and impromptu break dancing on the dance floor.
