Elizabeth and Timmy were married at Historic Malbis Plantation in Daphne, Ala. on November 30. ”As a wedding photographer for the past three years, I wanted something unique and different, something I had never seen before in person,” Elizabeth said. “I had a little help from Pinterest and Etsy, and it took many hours slaving over DIY projects and many sleepless nights getting it all done, but I could have not asked for a better wedding once I saw everything together.” The bride wore a ruffled one-shoulder satin a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept braided updo and chunky, chandelier earrings, while the groom wore a dark gray vest and pants, accessorized with solid ties and Converse tennis shoes. She carried a bouquet of Before the ceremony, the couple exchanged love letters and gifts. Elizabeth wrote on a brown paper bag, “Timmy, I have loved you for 824 days but today will be the best day ever. Love, your fiance.” ”The weather was perfect,” she said. “I was so nervous it would be way too cold or rainy, and it was 69-70 degrees and sunny.” Fun fact: It took place during the Iron Bowl. “We walked back up the aisle to the Alabama fight song, since Timmy and the groomsmen are huge football fans,” Elizabeth said. Guests were encouraged to update their statuses, tweets, or Instagram photos with the hashtag #goldmanwedding. The signature cocktail? Mountain dew! ”I knew that a wide array of florals would make a gorgeous setup surrounded by mason jars and bottles of different sizes and candles galore,” she said. “It was truly beautiful! I incorporated a ton of cameras I found either on Ebay or local antique stores to showcase my love for photography.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me,” and then sat down at a sweetheart table with a fabric streamers backdrop and crystal chandelier from above. The three-tiered buttercream frosted cake was topped with a bunting banner with hearts and in addition, there was groom’s cake featuring Big ‘Al. See the full board here.

Meghan + Chris: A Rainy Day Romantic Spring California Railroad Station Wedding By Two One Photography

Meghan and Chris were married in a traditional ceremony at Kenwood Community Church followed by an indoor reception at the Kenwood Depot in Santa Rosa, Calif. on March 28. ”In March, California was in the midst of a drought, yet one of the few rainfalls of the year was on our wedding day,” Meghan said. “It was a little stressful as forecasts predicted 30-70 percent chance, but we heard all the stories about if it rains, it’s good luck.” The bride wore a strapless lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls and a pair of glitter peep-toe platform pumps, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid black tie. Bridesmaids wore short pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and baby’s breath. During the ceremony, a unity candle was lit, and after they were pronounced husband and wife, Chris decided to ring the tower’s bells for all to hear. The newlyweds’ best advice? The newlyweds’ best advice? “Take a stroll after the ceremony and before the reception just the two of you, so you can enjoy time alone and absorb in this once-in-a-lifetime-moment” she said. Guests were greeted at the railroad station with a welcome table displaying a typewriter (and rocks) for well wishes and a birdcage for gifts and cards. ”Our inspiration came from classic romance, the sunset, and lots of candles in an intimate setting of the late 1880′s train depot,” Meghan said. ”My mom and grandmother collected silver arrangements along with old books to create a warm ambiance.” Tables were decorated with burlap runners, votive candles, and a “How Well Do You Know California?” mad libs at each place setting. Notice the Mr. & Mrs. banner on the sweetheart table? The cake was cut with personalized “I do” and “Me too” forks, and the first dance was performed to “Kiss Me” by Ed Sheeran.

Danielle + Justin: An Evening City-esque Fall Florida Resort Wedding By Minerva Photography
Posted by czentgraf. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Minerva PhotographyCeremony Venue: Turnberry Isle ResortReception Venue: Aventura Lakes Clubhouse

Danielle and Justin were married in on the rooftop of Turnberry Isle Resort followed by a reception at Aventura Lakes Clubhouse in Miami, Fla. on November 7. The bride wore not one but two outfits — a strapless satin drop-waisted wedding gown with a beaded bodice, accessorized with a floor-length veil, and a long lace maxi dress with an illusion hemline, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore short mix ‘n’ matched dresses and carried bouquets of paper origami flowers. How do-it-yourself is that? The evening ceremony’s aisle was lined with floating candle vases, sheer ribbons across the backs of folding chairs, and a chuppah, which was held by close family and friends. Following the exchanging of vows and rings (and most importantly, the signing of the ketub, a Jewish marriage license, guests were escorted to the ballroom. Tables were decorated with white linens, tall floral centerpieces atop mirrors, and challah, elaborately braided bread that is used to bless the dinner. Dancing continued throughout the night, but it wasn’t complete without a hora. The newlyweds were hoisted up high above the crowd onto chairs to the infectious sounds of the “Hava Nagila.” If that wasn’t enough entertainment, there was also the cutting of the five-tiered square fondant cake featuring a crystal chandelier topper. As if they needed more sweets, mini dessert shot glasses were passed out as late night snacks too. See the full board here.
