Allison & Sage’s Buddhist gothic gluten-free wedding

With 90 days to plan their wedding, these two pulled off a fusion of Victorian Gothic and Traditional Taiwanese that will blow your mind. Her beyond-gorgeous kimono and his dapper top hat and cane make for fabulous photos, but their thoughtful buffet of eats-for-all-eaters is a real sight to see, even if they did need help figuring out how to cut the cake. PS: the rally music for paper-crane-folding party? Awesome.

A troupe of body builders, stilt walkers in studded thongs, 75 dancers, in-character actors serving food, and eight bodyguards for the couple — yep, it happened. And it happened in Bali, in an amazing venue, despite seemingly insurmountable familial doubt. But hey, you want the performance of a lifetime, you do what you have to do to get it.
