A whimsical & intimate pop culture wedding in Chicago? As you wish

Offbeat Bride's Executive Editor got married! Catherine and her husband Steven share a ton of geeky and pop culture interests so it made sense to infuse fun references, soundtrack themes, and fandom homages into their whimsical, pop culture-themed wedding in Chicago. It was held at a West Loop venue with a feast, an ice cream cart, a Hogwarts Great Hall photo booth, and dancing awkwardly into the night.

Don't miss the bride's custom dyed ombre unicorn dress!

A New York confectionery wedding with smoke bombs, viking horns, & a haunted paintball field

Tara and Mike decided to do something more industrial-themed for their New York wedding. They brewed large batches of mead (Tara makes the most incredible mead) for their wedding and anniversaries to come.

The day itself was incredible. Think smoke bombs, dinosaurs, haunted hay paintball fields, drinking horns, an epic groom’s cake of Cthulhu rising from the abyss with miniatures, and so much more.

This Virginia backyard wedding combined Scottish heritage with Lord of the Rings

Quarters Farm was not only a beautiful place for Krystyn and Joe to celebrate their wedding day but is also close to their hearts. Joe grew up in the family home on the property. The bed and breakfast and barn were transformed into the most gorgeous wedding space, too. Their casual boho vibe included elements of Lord of the Rings, one of the couples' favorite series. They also planned events and outfit changes to celebrate Joe's Scottish heritage, including Highland games. Don't miss all of their decor touches, much of which was handmade by Krystyn's sister. Keep an eye out for a huge "One Ring," jars of wildflowers, a flower dude, and loads of kilts…

Funko fans: get ready to lose your cool when you see this Funko headquarters engagement shoot

Tannah and Nic collect Funko toys and wanted to do have their engagement shoot at the Funko headquarters in Everett, Washington. It's super colorful, full of literally larger-than-life vinyl toy figures that are super popular, and just a really awesome backdrop for photos.

It was especially fun for them to let off some steam at a more casual setting for their engagement since their wedding will skew a bit more formal. Oh, and don't miss the making of the cake toppers!
