This was a fun story about two star-crossed lovers who happen to be part of voodoo/root-practitioner families who hate each other. The Hatfields versus the McCoys, except they are Black. — When the son of one and the daughter of the other fall in love they risk an all-out war of magics between their aunts and uncles just to get married.
In this story, the wizard Harry Dresden is helping his friend Billy the Werewolf get married. Too bad a miffed faerie stole his bride and decided to take her place. But Harry is on the case, with a little help from Detective Karrin Murphy.

A bride gets talked into getting married on a pirate ship by her fiance. It turns out the pirates are all dead and under a curse. And her fiance had some nefarious motives.
"All Shook Up" by P.N. Elrod
