They Went To A Wedding And All They Got Were These Awesome Photos

After checking out the party favors from film director Suzi Yoonessi and Spencer Crossland's January wedding, we were left wondering one thing: Why the hell weren't we invited?

As a gift to their friends and family in attendance, the couple had photographer Jonathan Grassi take portraits of guests in their hotel rooms at the kitschy Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, Calif. where the wedding was being held.

That's about 147 times cooler than the disposable favors most couples give, which guests either drunkenly leave at the reception or throw in trash as soon as they get home.

"Some guests even brought costumes tied to the theme of their room," Grassi told The Huffington Post in an email. "It was a refreshing strategy to celebrate the guests as much as the bride and groom, and it gave everyone a memento that made sure the wedding would not be forgotten."
