I'll never forget when the bride got onstage during Beyoncé's "Crazy In Love" and danced as a fan blew her hair back, just like the pop star. The only people from the groom's life in Spain who were able to make it to the wedding were his parents and brother. At one point in the evening, his dad and brother got out guitars and sang Spanish folk songs while everyone clapped and danced. — Mary Chellis Austin, Bride editor The ceremony and reception were held at this magical little place in New Orleans called Race + Religious. The love between the bride and groom and those there to celebrate their union was truly palpable. It filled the air, as did the sound of the wedding jazz band leading us all in a jubilant parade around the block in both song and dance. There was one thing that stood out to me greater than all of the other personal touches of the day: Their friend Eduardo carried with him a pen and sketchpad. Throughout the evening he would find a spot to observe and then draw the events that were unfolding. At the end of the night the bride and groom had pieces of art to bring with them into their new life as man and wife. — Shannon Yoho, hair and makeup artist I'm nearing the finish line of that early-20s-to-early- 30s wedding marathon.

Some of the good: a band that played "Sober" by Tool, a DJ willing to blast "King Kunta" by Kendrick Lamar, a Skyline Chili cheese coney buffet, hand-rolled sushi during cocktail hour, miniature grilled cheese sandwiches with a tomato juice shooter. Oh, and a best man who talked about masturbation in his speech. — Josh Moss, Louisville Magazine editor Both of my daughters pinned a monogrammed brooch that belonged to their late grandmother Mima, whom they adored, to their wedding bouquets. — Julie Crutcher, business director
