Amanda and Josh were married at Rancho Buena Vista Adobe in Vista, Calif. on March 28. “From the moment we walked through the gates, we had a great feeling about it,” Amanda said. “It had the ambiance we were looking for and we knew we wouldn’t have to do much more to create a gorgeous setting.” The bride wore a strapless fitted lace gown with casual wavy hair. She carried a pink and white bouquet made of peonies, roses, ranunculeses, hyacinthes, tulips, and freesias. Her ‘maids donned short muted pink dresses with white embroidery on the bodice. They carried bouquets of ranunculuses, roses, sweet peas, among other pretty blooms. Her groom and his men opted for tan dress pants and vests, and went without a tie for a more casual look. The two littlest attendants carried a burlap banner that read “Here comes the bride” before Amanda’s dad escorted her down the aisle to wed Josh in front of 175 friends and family members. The reception followed with a taco dinner and an iced bundt cake for dessert. Each table featured a DIY floral mason jar centerpiece with burlap and lace decor on top of a wooden slab. Amanda and Josh’s main priority was that everyone had a fabulous time. “I didn’t want to be stressing about everything being a particular color or wedding favors or fancy place settings,” Amanda noted. “What mattered is that everyone was able to get an invite, that we had good music, everyone was fed, and everyone was comfortable.” How sweet!

Jessica + Stephen: Vintage Chic Springtime Utah Wedding by Gideon Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Jessica and Stephen were married in St. George, Utah on May 3. The bride looked breathtaking in a short-sleeve lace gown with a curly side-swept updo. Jessica’s dress was extra special because of who made it- her (now) sister-in-law! “She sewed every stitch of my dress,” Jessica said. “We spent hours fabric shopping, sketching, trying the dress on, pinning and unpinning lace, and the finished project was even more perfect than I ever could have dreamed of.” Jessica carried a bright bouquet of peonies, garden roses, succulents, and dusty millers. The groom opted for a fitted navy blue suit with a floral-patterned neck tie. The traditional ceremony featured three adorable flower girls. The reception was held in the modern clubhouse at Sand Hollow Resort and featured dark wooden tables and chivari chairs. The place settings also held a lot of meaning for the couple. “The china setting at our dinner were pieces of all four of our grandmothers china, and other pieces of china that we shopped for together,” Jessica said. “They were all mismatched and unbelievably beautiful.” Each guest was greeted with a small jar of jam as a favor to take home with them. Guests indulged in waffles topped with whipped cream and fruit for dinner, a representation of many meals the couple shared together while dating. Afterwards, family and friends enjoyed various cakes adorned with succulents, and danced the night away. “Our wedding was every thing we love combined into one big party! I wanted our guests to walk in and know we created every detail,” Jessica said. “We wanted it to scream Stephen and Jessica. I think we accomplished that.” See the full board here.

Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos:  iZO Photography; Venue: Sittella Winery; Groom’s Attire: Country Road; Hair Stylist: Justin at Maurice Meade Garden City; Bridesmaids Dresses: Zimmerman; Ceremony Arch: Pretty Willow Hire; Lighting: Micktric Events; Bride’s Dress: My Catwalk; Makeup Artist: Jess at ME Studio; Flowers: Singapore Flower Girl; Bridal Shoes: Flannel and Myer

Lucy and Ryan were married at Seven Day Adventist Church in North Perth, Australia, followed by a reception at Sittella Winery in Swan Valley, on April 27. The bride opted for a casual look with a strapless, flowy gown featuring ruching and layering details. She wore her hair in a relaxed updo under a veil that Lucy and her grandmother handmade together. She carried a bouquet complete with dark red peonies, thistle, and greenery. Her ‘maids wore short, sleeveless, navy blue dresses and carried bouquets featuring white blooms and greenery. The groom donned a navy blue suit and bow tie, while his men wore white button-down shirts with red ties. “Everything was centered around creating a warm atmosphere,” Lucy said. “I have dappled in a bit of interior design so I took on the role of visual design of the ceremony and reception.” The couple exchanged vows in front of 100 guests in a traditional ceremony, with an ivy-covered arch as the backdrop, and featured the bride’s 5-year-old cousin as the flower girl. The guests then moved to the Sittella Winery for food, drinks, and dancing. “We wanted our wedding to be relaxed- a day where we could celebrate the start of the rest of our lives and genuinely enjoy the company of our closest friends and family,” Lucy said. Each table featured a floral centerpiece, with the table number written on a mini chalkboard, and tea towel favors designed by the couple.The reception featured games such as the newlywed shoe game, and a more creative component as well! “Each table had to come up with a poem for the bride and groom- a very hilarious event that included a spectacular impromptu rap form one of the guests,” Lucy said. Guests enjoyed a three-tiered cake adorned with greenery for dessert. Lucy’s advice for engaged couples? “Set aside regular times during the planning to keep your family and brial party in the loop,” she said. “It’s important that everyone is on the same page for the big day.” See the full board here.
