Teapots, cucumber sandwiches, and cake on the best man’s face? It’s a tea party wedding turned upside down.

Colleen & Delsin’s Old Hollywood food truck wedding

A killer movie theater venue, some 1920s fashion, and a recessional with a marching band — get ready for this Old Hollywood good time. And just wait until you read the bride’s description of the ceremony entrance. Talk about a way to get us all excited about aisle-walking! But best of all… there is a giant, 40-person karaoke battle to none other than Meatloaf.

Alicia & Jonah’s nature-focused Native American wedding

Our ceremony was a traditional Ojibwa wedding, performed by an Ojibwa elder. Ojibwa is an eastern Canadian native American tribe which is Jonah’s ancestry. Our wedding was held outdoors from ceremony to pictures to dinner to reception. The reception was held at night under a patch of trees. We danced on a grass dance floor.

Screw shotgun weddings — it’s all about these shotgun boutonnieres

I made my own DIY shotgun shell boutonnieres! Basically what I did was hot glued a bunch of feathers on top of each other and shoved them down into the shells. Then I stuck the flowers into the shells in front. Easy and awesome!

Stacia & Kevin’s space-y Groundhog Day wedding with a ring bear

Our favorite member of the wedding party, the RING BEAR, returns! This time inside a space-y sci-fi-themed wedding in Seattle that includes sci-fi save-the-dates, Thai catering, and space grab bag favors. These high school sweethearts and their team of “Groundhoggers” totally know how to party (and awesomely get kicked out of the after party!).

Paula & Brian’s Old Hollywood glam wedding

Live music, a wedding singer, and some retro glam make this wedding fabulous. And when you hear what went in to the pre-owned couture dress, you’ll have a new appreciation for all that beading! Add in a veggie feast, a wine box ceremony, and a sweet favorite song moment shared with the father of the bride, and you’ll swoon.
