Singing, succulents, and LEDs at this musical light-up wedding

Singing, succulents, and LEDs at this musical light-up wedding

Adina and Sean’s musical light-up wedding was a sight to see (that we wish we could have HEARD as well!). Adina is Jewish and Sean is Unitarian, so for the ceremony, they mixed and matched some elements of each. They also met in choir, so having their musical friends and family sing for and with them was a given. Their guests sang the wedding party down the aisle, with choir members providing harmony. A quartet of family and longtime friends sang a traditional blessing to them during the service. And Sean and his a capella group serenaded the bride at dinner. So much singing! So much awesome!

Don’t miss the succulent place cards/favors, light-up shoes, tie, and sequins, and rockstar-inspired wedding dress…

This bridal pantsuit is SO worthy of adoration

Riley and Anei’s Wisconsin backyard wedding

Riley and Anei had a lovely backyard ceremony at Riley’s childhood home in Madison, WI full of sweet details like an antique bathtub for a cooler, farmer’s market flowers, tons of string lights, and a striking bridal pantsuit for which we fell head over heels. And I’m thinking you will, too. Let’s see more photos of the outfits and hear about their ceremony and challenges in planning this whole event as a trans/queer couple

Sunflowers and red details as seen on @offbeatbride

These two brides celebrated a sunflowery rustic wedding (with an extra special reading)

Sunflowers, DIYed details, and a lot of red to celebrate a special little guy who left them too soon are some highlights from this gorgeous rustic wedding. There were some amazing moments in this wedding like the advice about watching the guests at the reception and their awesome ceremony entrance. But the reading they chose for the ceremony takes the cake for us. Just wait until you read it.

Karen & Michelle’s “love, joy, and happiness” blue celebration of love

Blue details, a blue dress, a blue vest, and touches of red… this multi-hued wedding is something fabulous to look at, but also something that may get your tear ducts going. This pair shines in every shot. Their April wedding may not have been a legal ceremony, but a little miracle happened and well, you’ll just have to see how it all went down after that.

Kirsty & Ollie’s crafty autumn vintage wedding

An October wedding, vintage and antique details, and candidates for “most adorable bridesmaids” awards are awesome, but then you see the bride and groom. Birdcage veil, a tattoo sleeve, bespectacled dude… we’re hooked. This UK couple knows how to be adorable AND throw an amazingly crafty shindig.

Lauren & Marco’s offbeat lite Filipino American wedding

This pair wanted to mix some traditions with offbeat ways. So get ready for traditional Filipino food, invitations, barongs, and 35 sponsors! They also opted for a Unitarian ceremony, which presented its own challenge for the bride’s Catholic family. You’ll definitely want to heed her advice when it comes to that. So head in and ogle the gorgeous Wai-Ching and Unique Vintage dresses, the purple glow-y tent, and the choreographed first dance story.
