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 quirky retro Moonrise Kingdom-inspired family centric wedding

The previous summer, while camping, we rewatched Moonrise Kingdom, which was one of the first movies we saw together when we reunited in 2012 (we'd briefly had a long-distance relationship in 1996, but went our separate ways and both ended up married to other people). We immediately realized it was the perfect inspiration for our kid-centered, end-of-summer wedding: it's romantic, but also weird, retro, and set in a Maine-like location.

A Star Wars meets A Christmas Carol queer disabled multi-state wedding (in a blizzard!)

When we started planning our wedding, we quickly realized that since our families were separated by many states (I was raised in the midwest, he's from Virginia), it was going to be a logistical nightmare for us to get everyone together in one spot, so we decided to honor both sides of our family by coming to them. So we planned two weddings, one in VA and another celebration in IL.
