Rainbows and roller coasters abound at this Knoebel’s wedding in Pennsylvania

Lizzy and Nate met at an invitational board game convention, so their fun side had to be pretty well-defined. So when they decided to have their wedding at Knoebel’s Amusement Park in Elysburg, Pennsylvania, the fun factor was a done deal. They even had a “first plunge” on a coaster after the ceremony.

Bagpipes, redwoods, and fiddles at this Big Sur Pi Day wedding

We love seeing couples get married on Pi Day, but Jeanne and Nick took it one step further and had the ceremony begin at 1:59, making their anniversary an even longer form of the abridged number: 3.14159! Jeanne walked in to bagpipes and let her fab Black Milk leggings peek out as she walked toward the ceremony. And then we got to see the first of many photos of Nick’s expression that make me swoon.

Fab dreads, skull flask garters, and a groom in shining armor

Karly and Steve are my new deadlock heroes. Karly’s two-tone updo is just gorgeous. This week’s reader submissions were full of other amazing shots, too, like skull-patterned flask garters, a groom in shining armor, an air plant bouquet, and a sidewalk chalked save-the-date. All of these submissions are making 2013 start off with a bang.

‘Stina & Graham’s DIY country ranch wedding

This pair tackled tons of DIY projects, battled some very inconsistent weather, and had to cater a party in the middle of the country. But you’d never know these were even challenges when you see the awesome Mexican catering, the cool ambiance (event producer groom FTW!), and the lovely weather. These photos give off one theme more than any other: FUN.
