Ten Weddings That Set the Bar

When people ask me what I love most about weddings, the answer is always the same. Spunk. I love when a couple ditches the notion of a traditional wedding and throws a fête that represents their personalities and loves. When they infuse their day with little tidbits that give their guests a window into their lives, whether it's through an awesome In-N-Out Burger truck, a beautiful and personalized vow, a fun first dance or a a menu that will make even the foodiest of foodies swoon.

As the editor behind Style Me Pretty, a wedding blog for the die-hard bride and groom, my team and I have featured over 6,000 real weddings over the course of four years, each with their own unique style and voice, each with their own personality. Here's a look at some of those weddings that were so good, they have permanently changed the way weddings are styled. That have upped the bar for what it means to have a beautiful wedding and that have redefined what the word chic really means.
