Ashley and Misha were married at the Boca Beach Club in Boca Raton, Fla. on May 25. ”I always envisioned my wedding being on a beach, but then realized that can get very messy for guests,” Ashley said. “We chose the Boca Beach Club, which is a Waldorf Astoria hotel. We decided to get married before sunset by their gorgeous pool, which had a backdrop of the beautiful ocean.” The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown, accessorized with a braid updo and jeweled hair comb, while the groom wore a black suit and tie. Bridesmaids donned long purple chiffon dresses and carried all-white bouquets filled with hydrangeas and roses. Before the ceremony, Misha sent a text message to Ashley reminding her that this is the #bestdayever. How tech-savvy? But she was already enjoying her sip of bubbly and spritzing with Cartier. “Before we say, ‘I do,’ we’d love a photo of you! So, as a request we ask each and every one. It will only take a while, please give us a smile!” was displayed on a chalkboard as guests arrived. In addition, they were asked to sign bottles of wine and grab ribbon wands too. Crystal chandeliers lit the ballroom, the sweetheart table had an AMAZING pinwheel wall from behind, and the five-tiered cake was ombre! See the full board here.

Domonique and Aaron were married at V6 Ranch in Parkfield, Calif. last summer. “The location where we were married was close to our hearts for a few reasons,” Domonique said. “We had family and friends in both Northern and Southern California, and this was an area both could drive to. We wanted a place where people could escape from their daily lives and enjoy the moment.” The bride wore a v-neck fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a black floral sash and birdcage veil, while the groom wore a seersucker jacket, black pants, and a navy blue tie. “Our approach was very do it yourself,” she said. “We were fortunate to have talented friends and family who pitched in and made the wedding beautiful.”The maid of honor designed all of the bouquets and boutonnieres, which included air plants, dusty millers, anemones, ranunculuses, and feathers. Guests sat on bales of of hay to watch the outdoor ceremony. How unique are their wedding bands? As the reception followed, so did the toast. Everyone recited, “The taste of love is sweet when hearts like ours meet.” with mason jars and customized horseshoe shot glasses. Dinner was served family-style at long tables in a U-shaped configuration with pews draped in cowhide, pies were dessert, and the first dance was performed to “That’s How Strong Our Love Is” by Otis Redding.

Seana and Ryan were married at Southbrook Vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada on October 19. The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a beaded bodice, accessorized with an ivory sash and blush peep-toe pumps, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a black bow tie. Bridesmaids donned sage green long chiffon dresses and carried eco-friendly bouquets featuring white garden roses, scabiosa pods, succulents, and dusty millers. Groomsmen added a pop of color to their ensembles with green socks and matching monogrammed cufflinks. Guests were transported to and from the ceremony in a red double-decker bus. How fun! Even though the rain made for the nuptials to be inside rather than outside, the soon-to-be newlyweds were all smiles. The reception was decorated with draped fabric ceilings, gray linens, and black chiavari chairs, but it was the dessert display that was the absolute eye-catcher! Notice the cake pops, cookies, cupcakes, and vintage decor elements like the typewriter, scale, and badminton rackets? See the full board here.
