Alexandra and Alejandro were married at Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake, Calif. on May 31. The bride donned a strapless fit ‘n flare lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and wore her hair in a delicate updo. Her best pals were outfitted in short pink and blue dresses with various necklines. They all carried bouquets with garden roses, hydrangeas, and peonies. The groom and his men looked dashing in gray three-piece suits. The groom differentiated himself from the colored vests and neckties by sporting white. “We did a first look before the ceremony, ” Alexandra said. “It was our favorite part of the day. We weren’t married yet, but looking back, it was our only few minutes of uninterrupted time to just be together.” The couple was married under two large trees by Alexandra’s uncle in front of 170 guests. “We wrote our ceremony and included a variety of cultural traditions, ranging from Spanish traditions from our families, to the Irish tradition of handfasting,” Alexandra said. A cocktail hour followed, and then guests moved inside to a dining room where they were greeted by chalkboard signs. Escort cards guided them to round tables with white linens, gold chiavari chairs, and bright floral centerpieces. Guests chose from a variety of full-service food stations (one of which included a luau-style pig), and enjoyed a beer garden with five varieties of craft beer. Alexandra was incredibly happy with the whole day. “While we didn’t know exactly what we wanted when we started planning, it ended up getting something absolutely classic and perfect for us.” See the full board here.

Lauren + Anthony: Green and Purple Italian-Inspired Arizona Wedding by Jillian Ryan Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Photo: Jillian Ryan Photography; Venue: Cibo Urban Pizzeria Cafe; Dress Designer: Galina from David’s Bridal; Bridesmaid Dresses: David’s Bridal; Groom and Groomsmen Attire: Macy’s; Hair Stylist: Jennifer Dew; Makeup Artist: Stephanie Neilheisel; Officiant: Jerry Laurmann

Lauren and Anthony were married at Cibo Urban Pizzeria Cafe in Phoenix, Arizona on April 6. The bride wore a strapless dress with a ruched bodice and a green and purple embroidered sash, her hair in relaxed curls. She carried a bouquet of succulents, mums, baby’s breath and assorted greenery. Her ‘maids donned green floor-length strapless dresses and held bouquets filled with baby’s breath, mums, and daisies. The groom looked dapper in a purple-checkered button-up, paisley tie, and gray vest. His men wore green-checkered button-up shirts with khaki pants. The reason for all the green and purple? “Choosing colors was hard for me, but we decided on purple for our football team back home (The Ravens) and green is Anthony’s favorite color,” Lauren said. The intimate crowd of 75 guests gathered outside to watch Lauren and Anthony exchange their vows, which she says took them just 4 minutes. “That gave us more time to party,” she said. Guests headed off to the outdoor reception at the restaurant where a picture frame doubled as a seating chart, leading them to their seats. Colorful streamers decorated the outdoor area, and guests sat at banquet tables with cafe chairs and wire table numbers, which the bride’s brother made. “We both come from Italian families so we wanted to include that culture in a little bit, with Italian desserts, music, and the dinner,” Lauren said. After enjoying the Italian fare (pizza and pasta, yum!) the guests took advantage of the photo booth, indulged in a two-tiered cake with butter cream frosting, and took home personalized candles as a favor. “Our families mesh so well together, so it was just a big party all day,” Lauren recalled. “Our wedding was intimate, dreamy and so perfect, it could not have gone any better.” See the full board here.

Neely and Karl were married at a private barn in Silverhill, Ala. on April 26. “I wanted the theme of my wedding to be romantic, in every sense of the word!” Neely said. “I wanted a very intimate, vintage, traditional feel to the whole night!” The bride stunned in a fitted strapless lace gown and wore her chestnut brown hair in an intricate updo. She opted for minimal jewelry and carried a bouquet of light pink and white garden roses. Her ‘maids matched the romantic vibe perfectly in flowing floor-length blush-colored gowns with various necklines. The groom and his men donned gray three-piece suits, the groom differentiated himself by opting for a light blue vest and necktie, while the groomsmen went with white. ” The whole wedding, ceremony and reception were outdoors,” Neely said. “The ceremony itself was relaxed and traditional, performed by my granddaddy.” Guests sat in folding chairs, beside a lake, and watched Neely and Karl tie the knot. Afterwards, they walked up the hill to the reception, which was in a private barn. Guests were encouraged to sign a wooden table along with a guestbook. The couple added many personal touches such as a family photo display and a cute dessert display. Rustic touches such as whimsical handwritten signs, mason jar flower holders, and bales of hay decorated the barn. They even had outdoor string lights, so guests could celebrate long after the sun set. “The whole day I would describe as relaxed, romantic, full of sentiment and love,” Neely said. “I wanted to spend the morning with my favorite people, and that’s exactly what I did.” The couple cut a three-tiered cake adorned with flowers and were sent off into married life with sparklers. Despite the gorgeous details and romantic aesthetic, it wasn’t the most important part for Neely.  ”At the end of the day, if you are married to the love of your life, then it was a perfect day!” Neely said.
