When a rustic forest wedding met red, black, and metal

When we got engaged, we knew we didn't want a typical wedding. Instead, we wanted to incorporate some of the wonderful things we enjoy together into an expression of our love. We picked black and burgundy as our colors to match our dark aesthetic. For my bridal look, I wanted to go high drama. I ditched the white dress and found an asymmetrical wine-colored dress and, with my bridesmaid Haley, built a one-of-a-kind elk antler headdress so I could look like a pagan forest goddess.

Don't miss the fashion at this colorful queer Caribbean-vibes wedding

On their ninth anniversary, Neish and Tish tied the knot exactly as they wanted to: in a low-key queer-love celebration, full of color and easy-going Caribbean vibes. Hailing from Jamaica and Trinidad, the couple knew their wedding garb had to have a pop of color. The bride's red wedding dress played off the groom's red bowtie and pocket square, and in a reversal of tradition, it was the groom who wore head-to-toe white.

A colorful & joyful art gallery wedding (with a caricature artist and groom-made bouquet!)

Our theme was creative cocktail — we wanted lots of people to wear prints and colours to match the ceremony and reception setting of art gallery. We had a hired cartoonist to do portraits and we invited ceremony-only attendees for a cocktail hour with grazing table. Scott actually made my bouquet on the day, something slightly stressful but with a beautiful end result: a king protea surrounded by gum blossom and sea-holly for texture. Oh, and I also wore a bright red dress to symbolise my Chinese heritage.
