Sarah & Mark’s BBQ in a barn with a big bear brawl

Sometimes when you incorporate bears into your wedding theme, it begins Bear War I and somebody’s going down. Thankfully, there was mucho honey favors, tons of pies (including whoopie), and the breaking of bread to get all the guests involved. Plus, the bride has some great advice on what she should have brought to the hotel!

Betsy & Josh’s retro and rock theater wedding

A little Slayer, some Stray Cats, vintage-style fashion, and a 1942 Oldsmobile made this wedding a rock-lover’s wet dream. But it wasn’t all hard-edge and kicking ass.

Yes, you can use Spotify as your wedding DJ

Before we got married, I read SO MANY posts about how it’s just easier to hire a DJ and not worry about ceremony music on an iPod. Still… I wasn’t having it. I wanted to control the music, I wanted to make it our own, and I didn’t want to pay out the wazoo for any of it. Our solution? Spotify.
