Molly + Michael: A Romantic Candlelit Mississippi Private Estate Wedding By Danny K. Photography

Molly and Michael met a local bar in college. “I was working, doing the marketing for the band, Rocky Mountain Rhythm Blues. My girlfriend was with me, and he was with his roommate,” Molly said. “I ended up dating Michael, and she ended up dating his roommate. We were married last August, and our friends got married in March of this year.” The couple decided to have a fall wedding at home that was shabby chic. Molly wore an Augusta Jones lace illusion neckline wedding gown and “something blue” suede stilettos, and bridesmaids wore platinum convertible twist gray dresses and coral necklaces. Michael went eco-friendly with his succulent boutonniere. Guests were surprised to see Molly’s grand entrance during the processional. She arrived in a Model T car with her father. Vintage elements were incorporated into the reception decor. Tables were draped in ivory silk shantung and velvet patterned lace. Their monogrammed initials were showcased too — on cups, the dance floor, and even koozie favors. They performed their first dance to Frank Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight,’ and ended the night with cutting the Ole Miss-inspired basketball court groom’s cake and a sparkler send-off.

Jasmine + Corey: A Boho-Chic California Garden Wedding By Shaun & Skyla Walton

After growing up in small towns, Jasmine and Corey wanted to bring out their country sides at their Maravilla Gardens wedding in Camarillo, Calif. Their theme? “Anything rustic chic with a bit of vintage,” Jasmine said. She wore a Pronovias mermaid wedding gown and accessorized with a floral wreath and sparkly platform peep-toe pumps. “All my bridesmaids’ dresses were mismatched vintage dresses I found at thrift stores and vintage shops,” she said. “The bridesmaids carried bouquets of baby’s breath” whereas her pastel bouquet featured peonies, roses and lamb’s ear. The groomsmen looked dapper in their skinny black ties and suspenders. Just look at those smiles! (Sigh). The groom’s favorite moment? “Watching the most beautiful bride I have ever seen walk down the aisle,” Corey said. “She looked so stunning that my jaw almost hit the floor. It just reminded me how lucky of a man I truly am.” Jasmine incorporated Scrabble letters throughout the reception decor, including the table numbers and place settings. Centerpieces were filled into glass milk bottles and desserts were placed on top of a white dresser. In lieu of a guestbook, guests left plenty of well wishes on clothespin tags. See the full board here.
