Our big gay pagan rainbow woodland festival wedding

We had guests from as far apart as Japan, California, and Germany. We tried to invoke all the things we loved in our wedding day — geeky nods to Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, Jonathan Coulton, and the Lord of the Rings; the Obergefell v Hodges ruling for Jess's career and theatrical touches for mine. We asked our guests to wear 'whatever makes you feel pretty.' We then celebrated with ice cream, lawn games, and street food, and ended the evening with a ceilidh and session. Oh, and there was an owl, and llamas.

A queer sequined Monday morning microwedding with a monster milkshake

This small elopement in New York City was full of sparkles, sequins, the best of friends, tons of tears, a mini dance party in the park, and a hugh-jass ice cream milkshake. Is it possible to even imagine a more intimate, fun-filled, and stress-free wedding?

You're in a for a big, whipped cream and cherry-covered treat with this one, y'all…

You'll need to fan yourself from the pink suit & striped dress at this romantic brunch wedding

We just wanted a small, relaxed, morning brunch wedding where people could go about their day afterwards and not where people got wasted and stayed until 1am — that is my nightmare wedding. It's great for some, but the opposite of what I envisioned. Thankfully it all came together and it was over by 2:30pm, leaving people to enjoy the rest of their day. Instead of a dance floor, people milled around talking and eating and enjoying custom drinks. It was great!

An elegant Hallowedding on Friday the 13th with a love potion ceremony & a flower ghoul

We had a Halloween theme and got married on Friday the 13th. We walked down a black and white striped aisle runner where our very close friend Jonny married us, and instead of a unity candle or sand ceremony we did a cocktail ceremony pouring red and blue booze from potion bottles over dry ice in a skull glass that we called a love potion. My friend Mike was our flower ghoul!

Turtles! Brunch! Dogs in ties! This rainbow lesbian wedding is all about furever love

Since Caitlin proposed to Kris with the tortoises at the Southwick Zoo, we included the turtles in all our little details including a custom logo designed by Caitlin/paper straws with turtle cutouts (save the sea turtles!), handknit turtle coffee sleeve favors which doubled as a seating chart by Caitlin’s grandmother Marcia, and even more turtle decorations.

Since it was a lesbian wedding, we of course had to include rainbows!
