Disney villains meet classic heroes at this high fantasy wedding

I have worked in the wedding industry for five years now and when my partner and I decided to get married I didn’t want anything “Wedding” — so what did we do? We had a Heroes and Villains themed wedding! It was a wedding filled with love and little bits from friends and family. We danced the night away and played games at every table. And in not-so-true villain fashion, I got the girl in the end!

Love in the stacks: a literary engagement shoot with two cute brides-to-be

This beautiful pair of ladies both work for a big city public library system so a literature-themed engagement session was on the agenda. They added even more meaning to it by finding the perfect book store to match their intentions. Let's hear from bride-to-be Amara on how she and her partner Ginny decided where and how to rock a bookish engagement session (all while juggling a photographer swap and the hurdles of planning a wedding as plus size, queer people!)…

Torrid has a new plus size wedding collection that's budget-friendly and cute as hell

Torrid is one of those brands that has been around far longer than most brands now offering plus sizes.

Here were a few of my faves from the Torrid plus size wedding collection…

Lakeside love at sunset at this Ithaca farmers market wedding

We had a specific color scheme of plum, turquoise, and burnt orange. We tried to have meaning and community in all of our choices. My shoes were hand-painted by my good friend who is a silk artist, the rings were made from diamonds from my grandmother's pin by a friend who is a jeweler, the ring pillow I made from the lace from my mother's wedding dress that my two aunts also wore, the cake was made by our two friends (and life lesbian mentors), our guest book my mother made, our engagement photography was done by our maid of honor, and all of our music was made by our friends as a gift…

Get ready to be blown away by this queer AF musical theater wedding

We had a ceremony musical theater interlude, a Stevie Nicks themed cocktail hour, social justice and queer themed tables, bomb food, bomb dancing, and homemade wedding cakes. Our theme was to have a queer AF wedding that was hopefully as much a gift to the people we love as it was to us. We were rounding out an ambitious year: cross country move, new jobs, new careers, and a wedding all happening within a few weeks.
