Noelle and Richard were married at Artisan Works in Rochester, NY on June 7. The bride looked stunning in a V-neck chiffon gown with a sparkly bodice and wore her hair in soft curls. She carried a bouquet featuring red peonies, pink roses, poppy pods, scabiosa pods, and fern curls. Her ‘maids opted for navy blue wrap dresses and carried colorful blooms. The groom and he men wore black two-piece tuxes with skinny ties. The couple let the decorative venue speak for itself. “Every inch of the venue is covered in colorful artwork, so any attempt at a color scheme or theme would be white noise,” Noelle explained. “We wanted something lively and non-traditional.” The pair exchanged vows in front of their 114 guests in the art space. The guests received an “instruction manual” as a ceremony program, one of the ways the the couple incorporated their sense of humor into the ceremony. A reception followed, which featured tables with black tablecloths decorated with bold and textured floral centerpieces. Another unique aspect to Noelle and Richard’s wedding was that they brought their own alcohol. “Since our hobbies of beer and wine making play such significant roles in our lives, it was essential to our plans that we be able to serve them to our friends and family,” Noelle explained. After dinner guests indulged in a two-toned cake topped with flowers. The pair couldn’t have been happier with the way their day turned out. “We were brimming with love and elation that so many people who are so special to us came so far,” Noelle said.

Mackenzie and Tyler were married at River Park Center in Owensboro, Ky. on May 25. The bride looked radiant in a strapless sweetheart bodice and ruffled mermaid skirt. Her long hair was down and wavy as she carried a bouquet of pink peonies and ivory roses. Her ‘maids donned short silver sequin dresses, which were a direct reflection of the bride’s inspiration. “Our wedding was inspired by the ritzy Gatsby parties mixed with my love for sequin, sparkle glam!” Mackenzie said. The groom wore a classic black tuxedo, while his men wore tuxedo vests to compliment his attire. The 210 guests sat outside by the river in silver chiavari chairs in a semi-circle around a gauze-draped structure adorned with ivory roses and a crystal chandelier, where the couple exchanged vows. The ceremony featured a little flower girl dressed in a mint ruffled dress and a young ring bearer carrying a silver sequin pillow. How adorable? A reception followed, where guests sat at round tables featuring tall hydrangea centerpieces. There was also an outdoor lounge with white sofas and a checkered dance floor. Guests received blue sparkly edible favors with their escort cards. “We wanted people to remember every aspect of the wedding from the love to the party,” Mackenzie said. After dinner the guests indulged in an glamorous three-tier cake. The bottom was a rosette tier, followed by a silver tier, and finally a fondant one. Talk about being too pretty to eat!  Mackenzie’s best advice? “If you want something- go for it! Don’t let anyone hold you back from your creativity early on.” See the full board here.

 Erica and John were married at the Palladium Saint Louis in St. Louis, Mo. on February 14. The bride looked stunning in an all-lace strapless gown with long wavy hair and a beaded trim veil. She carried a bouquet of roses, peonies, silver brunia balls, hypericum berries, and lamb’s ear. Her closest girlfriends opted for custom chiffon gowns in lavender and gray. The groom and his men donned gray suits with mix-and-match purple patterned neck ties. “I loved being hands on, fully involved in the creation and design of my wedding,” Erica said. “Though I drove myself crazy doing all the small projects, I would do those projects again!” The pair tied the knot in a big modern space with purple uplighting. A reception followed, and the wedding party sat at a head table. Other guests looked to the chalkboard to find their escort cards, where they were then led to round tables with hydrangea and curly willow centerpieces. “We strove to create a wedding which reflected our unique and individual personalities blended together as one,” Erica explained. The room was full of wintry details, including a snowflake light pattern that was projected on the wall. The groom’s little sister played Chinese music during dinner to keep guests entertained. After they ate, the newlyweds cut their three-tier cake adorned with flowers. Erica’s best advice? “Remember that the day is about you and your husband. Make it a reflection of yourself and your personality.” We couldn’t agree more! See the full board here.
