Emily & Aaron’s monochromatic DIYed wedding

The bride lives in black, so her dress totally had to incorporate the color. Add in her blue hair (her “something blue”), gorgeous black and white veil, their classic ride, and a tear-y groom, and you’ve got this gorgeous Aussie wedding with DIY details. Just wait until you see the groom at the beginning of the ceremony. Oh, and wait until you see how a five-year engagement helped them overcome a challenge.

Betsy & Josh’s retro and rock theater wedding

A little Slayer, some Stray Cats, vintage-style fashion, and a 1942 Oldsmobile made this wedding a rock-lover’s wet dream. But it wasn’t all hard-edge and kicking ass. The couple’s daughter made for some sweet photos and the dancing shots are grin-inducing. It’s a mix of hard rock and lace in this vintage-inspired wedding in an art deco theater.
