A Dia de los Muertos wedding for the whole family

Kristin and Jon celebrated El Dia de los Muertos a bit early last year on a rainy day in late October. The couple got married at the Round Corner Cantina in Pennsylvania, surrounded by little cacti in pots, tiny skulls, and a particularly spooky cake. Most of these details you'll see in the photos are El Dia de los Muertos or Mexican artifacts that Kristin and Jon already had in their home.

Both Kristin and Jon had been married before, so this small, relatively informal celebration wrapped up a few key wishes: one venue that had everything from drinks to food (hello, taco bar adaptable to dietary restrictions); a colored dress (Kristin's bright red dress is UHmazing); and Kristin's son walked her down the aisle. Awwwwwww!

Drool over one last spooky wedding of the season with a corpse bride from Pennsylvania!

Okay, yes, we're moving away from the season of skeletons and spooks, BUT. I owe it to you all to show you this one last spooky glam wedding! Crissa made for an awesome corpse bride when she and TJ got married earlier this fall. She styled her own look, thanks in part to her grandmother's wedding dress, a skirt of her own, and some choice accessories from Lovechild Boudoir. TJ absolutely kept up with his own Victorian corpse groom costume, and Crissa's daughter joined in the fun as a sparkly princess.

Social anxiety, expectations, and raising a child: Why we chose a pseudo-elopement

After three years of engagement, we finally started to figure out what we wanted to do for our wedding. Throw a big party? Throw a small party? Run away? Ugh, they all sounded hard and not right. I wanted our wedding to be special for us, and not be bogged down with anxiety, and feeling like no one was as happy as I wanted them to be. The one thing that kept sticking was pseudo eloping, and it was perfect.

Laura & Garrett's budget- and kid-friendly wedding

Camels and zebras and children — oh my! There's no better recipe for Southern fun than animals, kids, and balloons. Oh, and tons of pies WITH handmade recipe book favors. And a lollipop miracle at the ceremony. And a super sweet moment with the bride's father during their father/daughter dance. And so much more. SO MUCH!

Shyn & D'Angelo's laid-back recycled wedding

Reusing, recycling, and a little dumpster diving totally made this wedding into a low-maintenance cleanup wonder with awesome DIY projects like a wine cork guest book, self-catered picnic noms, and jam jar lanterns. A custom-made dress and Prohibition Era attire made it super stylish on top of that! Add in the lush green ceremony space, and you'll be googly-eyed for this couple.
