Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings at this meaningful Jewish wedding

The theme was a Jewish wedding with a Middle Earth and Star Wars twist. Costumes, lightsabers, swords, dancing, and giant turkey legs made the celebration go wild. But it was the meaning and intent that brought everyone to years.

Ink, roses, & tequila shots at this dark & romantic spring wedding at Lafitte Street Market

Gabrielle and Mark’s dark-spring romantic and gothic-inspired wedding day takes the saying “Until death do us part” to another level. Gabrielle began the day getting ready with her crew at Turning Point Tattoos, where Mark is a resident tattoo artist.

You’ll swoon at this vintage Muslim wedding at the South Georgia Botanical Gardens

Nadia and Jonathan met working as freelance journalists in New York City. Nadia, originally from Statesboro, GA, really wanted her wedding to be in her hometown so they made it happen. Nadia and Jonathan are both Muslim and had never kissed each other before the wedding day, so their portraits are particularly sweet and romantic.

The couple was married on the oldest church on the island, St. Mary’s Anglican Church.

A majestic Irish castle wedding with death metal & sword-bearing protectors

We both love castles and Irish history, and Craig wanted to have a death metal band play, so we found somewhere where that was possible, and arranged everything around that. We didn’t have a specific theme, but the castle definitely inspired some elements of our wedding. We decided to include our two swords in the day as there is a Viking tradition to exchange swords at your wedding as a promise to protect each other.
