The handmade masks at this Chicago Halloween wedding are #goals

Sam and Justin's Chicago Halloween wedding featured handmade costumes, vinyls, a flower girl throwing googly eyes, and a first look in a cemetery. Before the ceremony, they rocked some portraits at Laurie’s Planet of Sound and Ash’s Magic Shop. Our favorite part was the elaborate handmade Halloween masks and subsequent mask makeouts. Halloween couples: it's time to be inspired, and like the sign says, "Let's get weird."


Two brides bring the love to this Cincinnati wedding

Once you have duly admired Julie and Jennie's HUGE GRINS, you're welcome to peruse the rest of this Cincinnati wedding's loveliness. It was a small affair, with about 50 loved ones in attendance, but this laidback, breezy atmosphere is where it's at. Check out the adorable little ring bearer (and is that a tiny burlap messenger bag for the rings?); the brides' flowy, effortless style; and one bride serenading the other to tears (I'm dead). Also, really, one of the greatest, most stunned first looks I've ever seen.


Edgy vs. preppy: this first look is a surprise for bride AND groom

Jason told Brettnee he didn't want her to see his suit until their wedding day last September. Brettnee was planning her own rocking outfit with a leather jacket and a Zac Posen mermaid gown, so fair enough! While their personal aesthetic is a bit different ("Jason's more preppy where I'm more edgy," Brettnee said), the style trust between these two is real. "I knew it was going to be different and sharp."
