Karen and Liam got married in Ireland fall of 2019. They had a blended family ceremony, with their 13-year-old son singing and Karen breastfeeding her 10-month-old while getting ready. Karen also rocked her bald look, and when listing her wedding vendors, she noted, “Hair: N/A!”

After 25 years and a second chance at life, this silver wedding anniversary in Paris is sublime

It was love at first sight at the supermarket in 1991 in the Netherlands. We got married on August 24, 1994. 25 years later we decided to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary in Paris for a few reasons. Firstly, being grateful for 25 years of married life. In 2018, my husband had a brain hemorrhage and we are grateful for his second chance in life. And we were extremely happy to invite our best friends forever who were our bridesmaids and groomsmen at our wedding 25 years ago to celebrate it with us in the most romantic city in the world — Paris.

And after our ceremony, which involved making out with some of our guests (see the photos!).

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.
