wedding moments of 2014

This year we featured more weddings than ever, so I decided to make a countdown of my top five favorite wedding moments of 2014!  Choosing was much harder than I thought.  We had so many amazing weddings that I had to narrow it down to the ones that either tugged on my heart strings, made me laugh or were down right fashionably spectacular!  Have a favorite moment of your own? Tell me about in the comment box below.  Enjoy the countdown!

1.  A Shirtless Reception

Um, yeah, this wedding got a little weird.  The shirtless man pictured to the left is the father of the bride. I loved this wedding because I wanted to join the crazy and belong to this family. They all seemed so in love with each other and obviously were not afraid to let loose and have a great time. You would think this dad stole the show, but the real star was the blow up doll.  Yes, a blow up doll. This special guest was a hit with all the guests, posing with them, dancing with them and even smooching with them. The couple didn't seem to mind though. They were just excited everyone was having fun!

2.  Roaming the Streets of Cancun

There is so much to love about this Cancun wedding from the vibrant blue colors to the chic rockabilly style, but my favorite was their stroll around the slightly run down, but very eclectic neighboring fishing town.  They could have staged their photos on the beach, but this couple took a more offbeat approach and opted for a simple walk about town.  They were celebrities for the day, quickly collecting a crowd of watchers who were welcoming and friendly.  I think it suited their personalities perfectly.

3.  A Bride and Her Pony

Most first dances consists of a man and woman embracing and relishing the first moments as a newly married couple.  Not so much with this wedding.  Our bride ditched the groom and chose her first love, an adorable miniature horse named Luna, as her dancing partner.  Her new husband was an amazing sport with the whole thing since the wedding took place on the bride's family horse farm.  I'm a sucker for animals, so clearly this moment stole my heart.

4.  Glacial Vows

No words are really needed to explain the awesomeness of this elopement.  Basically the couple didn't want a huge wedding, so they vacationed on an Alaskan cruise, flew to the top of a glacier with an officiant and photographer and were married.  That's the way to do it! Truly romantic and absolutely breathtaking!

5.  Airplane Hangar Reception in South Africa

What is not to love about this gorgeous South African wedding?  The rustic details of the ceremony on a local farm, the beautiful simplicity of the bride's gown and the unique airplane hangar reception venue were just a few of the reasons this was the most popular wedding on the site this year.  Besides my latest obsession with visiting this amazing country, I loved the chemistry between the couple.  They seemed over the moon happy and their effortless wedding style really stood out as one of my favorite wedding moments of 2014.
