HuffPost readers kicked off the first weekend of August by celebrating the nuptials of their friends or family members -- and by getting married themselves!
Click through the slideshow below to see real wedding moments captured by those who attended them. If you go to a wedding, tweet a photo to @HuffPostWedding or email it to us the Monday morning after so we can feature it on the site.
Missed last weekend's weddings? You can see them here.
This is a posed picture but I thought it was cute. I asked the bride and bridesmaids to stick out their tongue. They did not hesitate. This wedding was held at The Clock Tower in Columbus, Ohio on August 3, 2012 for Jenny Zabonik and Timothy Knisley.
This was taken at the wedding for Nicole Mejias and Nick Lawson, August 4, 2012, Whestone Park of Roses, Columbus, Ohio at 11:00 a.m.
A wonderful wedding at Lord Thompson Manor August 4th. Congratulations Kara and Neil Prabhu!
I attended my sister's wedding this past Saturday. My mother and I did all the decorating and planning ourselves (with the help of Pinterest!). It turned out beautifully! Here is a link to my blog post about the wedding: http://wanibug.blogspot.com/2012/08/diy-wedding.html
Justine & Craig at The Prestonfield House Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland.
I attended a beautiful wedding yesterday. My future cousin (Jessica Bolaños) wed Nelson Vanegas and it was not your ordinary wedding. No registry was made. All they asked for was Spanish book (children) donations and money because for their honeymoon they will be going to Colombia to start building a micro library for the people in a small town. They will continue going back and making it bigger and bigger. They are a true inspiration. They really are trying to change the world and have made an impact in my life and those around them.
