A vintage-inspired goth wedding featuring a whole lot of hats and a unicorn bride and groom

Serge and Ely wed in Pennsylvania at the Abington Art Center, which proved to be a most excellent backdrop for their vintage and goth-friendly wedding day.

A music-heavy Brooklyn wedding with dinosaurs, balloons, and a drumming bride

Meet Mary and Matt, two Brooklyn-based musicians who wanted their wedding to include their fave bands and tunes in a big way. Each table at the reception was named after a band (some local, some super famous) and both the bride and groom took turns playing with their band during the reception! The multi-talented pair’s creativity didn’t stop there, as Mary also DIYed most of the bouquets and decor herself.

When Hinduism and Taiwanese wedding traditions combine: a multicultural wedding day

Helen and Deepak hail from Chicago but traveled down to Port Orange, Florida, to get married at The Estate on the Halifax. The multicultural pair intertwined Hindu wedding traditions with Taiwanese influences and owned it — the day included a lot of awesome details, like the fan-turned-wedding program and mismatched red bridesmaids dresses. Twinkle lights lined each corner of the reception hall, and the party moved indoors to enjoy a fruit-heavy dessert table (no cake!) and tons of dancing.
