Africa meets North America at this gorgeous Ghanaian wedding reception in Maryland

Billy and Jenny actually got married in Ghana a few years ago, but between Billy living in Ghana and Jenny getting her PhD, there wasn’t much time to celebrate here in the States. Their wedding celebration day changed all of that. They invited a few of their closest friends and family here in the U.S. to the beautiful Glenview Mansion in Rockville for dinner, photos, art gallery views, and dancing. Just wait until you see Jenny's fab multicolored dress!

Get ready to lose your shit after seeing this Rocky Mountain radish realness wedding

I wanted to get married in mountains with my closest friends and family there to celebrate with us. I wanted a dress with lots of colour and floral print, and after much searching I found the most amazing gown — huge green leaves, purple hydrangeas, and radishes (yes you read that right — radishes!). I based my colour palette on the dress, having flowers match the floral print, white decor, and of course, adding radishes to my cake and flowers.

A New York City hall wedding with chic roaring '20s Chinatown reception

Rachel and Tim started their day with some portraits that celebrated the city they love, New York City, with a panoramic view on top of The James Hotel. Then it was off to New York City Hall for the ceremony in their chic and retro-inspired outfits. That alone is eye candy galore, but it gets even better!

For their reception the next day, it was all about Gatsby bliss for 75 guests at Jing Fong in Chinatown. Think flapper dresses, peacock headpieces, a knockout cake, and delicious dim sum.

A creative mountain wedding at Zorthian Ranch (with a handmade dress!)

Jon and Jenny are both creatives, and they wanted a hip but relaxed wedding with their closest family and friends. They chose the Zorthian Ranch, which is known for it's offbeat artist community built by a local Altadena artist.

They had a ton of DIY elements to their creative mountain wedding. Jenny made both her dress AND Jon's suit. She also made their wedding pie! Do not miss the hot pink and black floral dress, the chic and simple details, and the gorgeous pie display…
