Krys & Chris' Scottish picnic wedding in the Redwoods

Lots of DIY, thousands of origami stars, a feathery bouquet, a surprise lightsaber arch… and a bouquet tossed from a trebuchet! For reals, ya'll. Except it went slightly differently than practiced. Plus, you'll want to see how the groom and his best man made up for some lost time in this second marriage. OH, and for something completely rad, take a guess who wore the special Batman garter. It definitely wasn't the bride!


Asha & Jay's family game day BBQ 'n' beer wedding

Lots of kids + lots of games + lots of time to run around = lots of fun. That's the theory of this wedding and it TOTALLY worked. Add in the gorgeous venue, two different ceremonies, and lots of DIY, and this community-oriented wedding wins the day. Even though the guest list spiked by 75, these two pulled it together with the generosity of friends (and even a fellow Tribesmaid!).


Louise & Adam's gothic fairytale wedding

It all started with a birthday card featuring purple and white dragons… and led to the gothic splendor that is this richly-hued fairytale wedding. There's a little bit for geeks, a little bit for film buffs, and a whole lot for those in the mood for romance. And when you see the details of the rich purple taffeta custom-made dress, you'll swoon.

one of our amazing and talented vendors, Laura of Rebel Belle WeddingsThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them sent us this heart-stopping seafoam circus wedding from none other than actor, comedian, producer, writer, singer, dancer, candlestick-maker Dick Van Dyke and his bride, Arlene Silver-Van Dyke. With our Empire-wide love of all things octopus (and oooh-shiny things in general), we were basically this, followed closely by this. Prepare yourself for contortionists, jugglers, a circus barker (with giant tentacle hat, natch), gobs of feathers, hula hoops, faux dancing bears, electric jellyfish, an epic first duet, and the cutest darn couple this side of unda da sea!
