David & Craig held an informal wedding at the Woolly Mammoth Theater in Washington, DC. How gorgeous is their sunflower chuppah? We also were a little bit obsessed with their muppet-themed wedding favors and cake topper.

Jennifer & Jessica arrived at their ceremony in a canoe and the rest of the wedding was equally as enchanting. Married by a rabbi under a chuppah held by family and friends, their summer wedding in Concord, MA was quite literally picture perfect.

This Four Seasons wedding in New York, NY was beyond gorgeous. The venue was completely transformed with cherry blossom trees and white garden roses. So romantic! We also love that their wedding cake was a funfetti Momofuku cake!

Bex + Cort

Bex and Cort’s beautiful and gender-neutral wedding ceremony in Portland, OR was the definition of untraditional – Bex wore a grey dress and bright shoes and the seating cards were silver cassette tapes. Even the Jewish elements of the wedding were bursting with personality. A friend made their kiddush cup and they sang alternative Shevah Brachot.

You can tell just from the photos that this wedding was full of love- love between Rachel & Nikki, love from their families, love from their friends. This Bethesda, MD wedding was absolutely gorgeous — and how awesome is this shot from the hora as they’re being lifted on chairs?!

Thomas + Ryan

This wedding is about to make us jump for joy. Thomas & Ryan were married in Atlanta, GA in an interfaith wedding embracing Jewish, Native American and Christian traditions. The two grooms were married by a rabbi and signed a ketubah before the ceremony. We love how happy and in love they are in this photo!
