I am a retro pinup and my husband is a phenomenal guitar player. What better way to combine the two passions with a retro diner theme wedding? With tabletop jukeboxes and condiment caddies on every table, an electric guitar as our guestbook, ice cream sundae wedges on my feet, 45s lining the aisle, my bridesmaids carrying albums down the aisle instead of bouquets, guitar pick place cards, and a working jukebox at the front of the ceremony space, and guitar pick flower boutonnieres, our wedding was a combination of retro style and rock 'n' roll.
There were tons of DIYed projects at this travel adventure wedding that injected personality into everything. Think etched glasses, bat necklaces, a gorgeous fall leaves cake, harvest-inspired centerpieces, and carved pumpkins. You’ll dig their fashion AND the enviable graffiti-covered ceremony space…
From yarmulkes with gold Gandalfs and flower crowns for everyone to guests were seated among flowers and ferns at different locations in Middle Earth, among folk from the realms of hobbits, elves, dwarves, and man, this was a Middle Earth garden wedding to remember.

Don’t miss this Turkish-American delight of a wedding: a belly dancer, sword balancing, Turkish delights, “La Vie en Rose” (and tons of other Francophile details!), Turkish evil eye wedding favors, old Hollywood glamour, DIYed invites, and hip scarves that got everyone’s hips shaking on the dance floor. Oh, and don’t miss how the groom’s father speech melted everyone’s heart!
You know about Parkour, right? These two met doing it, fell in love, and totally integrated their mutual hobby into a homemade obstacle course to the altar! We’re talking vaulting blocks, cat leaps, and eight-foot blocks. Is there any better analogy for the trials of marriage and life? I’m thinking these two are pretty damned prepared for it. Oh, and do not miss the Parkour cake!
