Helen and Sam first met at a friend’s house — he was leaving as she was arriving, but he immediately turned around to spend more time with her. Soon after, Helen moved to Korea for six months but upon her return, she and Sam became inseparable, engaged, and married at Brock House in an outdoor ceremony with perfect weather considering it rained the week prior. The bride walked down the aisle wearing a beaded cap-sleeved wedding gown and carried a bouquet of roses, peonies, and ranunculuses. The tented reception was lit with chandeliers, tables were named after the couple’s favorite biblical virtues, and place settings featured a watercolor menu card. Favors were cozy embroidered blankets with their initials. See the full board here.

Megan and Chris were married late-April on the grounds of David Girand Vineyards in Northern California. As guests arrived, they were given a timeline of the day’s events and a scan code to access their very own app to share photos! Megan walked down the aisle wearing an ivory trumpet wedding gown and carrying a bouquet of peonies, anemones, and berries. Attached to the base was a photo in remembrance of her grandparents. Bridesmaids and groomsmen stood quietly next to the future Mr. and Mrs. in their red one-shoulder satin dresses and gray suits, respectively. Following the ceremony, escort cards served as a puzzle pieces displayed together to reveal a romantic black-and-white engagement photo. Reception tables were adorned with mercury glass vases and votives as well as wine boxes, and favors were individually wrapped chocolate pretzels that said the couple finally “tied the knot.” See the full board here.

Eva and Adrian grew up on St. Maarten together, but didn’t start their summer fling until 13 years prior. Even after two families’ moves to Virginia and Toronto, they still maintained a long distance relationship. “We fell in love with Bear Flag Farm and when it came to decorations and theme, we didn’t want to take away from the beauty that would be around us,” Eva said. “Rather, we chose a subtle color palette and style that we felt would complement the fields, vineyards, and orchards.” The bride wore a Paloma Blanca a-line wedding gown and had one leading lady stand by her side when she said, “I do.”  Each carried a bouquet of peonies, succulents, and berries. “Both families of the couple were traveling primarily from the Caribbean — though our furthest guests traveled from Germany and Kuwait,” she said. “Having a destination wedding in Napa Valley was a treat as California was a first for many of our guests.” All 70 of them wipes their tears of joy with vintage handkerchiefs. Following the ceremony, guests sipped on signature cocktails and lounged on a comfy couch with fleece blankets, and during the reception guests kept entertained with a photo booth. Mini jars of olive oil were given out as favors at the end of the night. See the full board here.

Lydia and Bill were married in an outdoor ceremony under a wooden “Holy Matrimony” sign at Laurel Creek Manor. The bride showed off her curves in a complimenting, body-hugging Maggie Sottero ball gown and accessorized with a pearl necklace. Bridesmaids wore navy blue dresses and carried yellow rose bouquets while groomsmen wore gray suits with navy blue ties and yellow craspedia boutonnieres. Chevron was used throughout their reception decor, including the escort cards and linens. At each place setting, guests were given “Mad Libs” -esque games where they could share marriage advice. Tables were even named after the couple’s favorite football players! See the full board here.
