Erica Marie and Michael were married at V6 Ranch in Parkside, Calif. on September 1. The bride wore an Allure lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a feather headpiece, while the groom wore a custom Indochino suit, accessorized with suspenders. ”Michael loves suspenders – it reminded him of his grandfather (who was his best man for the wedding),” Erica Marie said. “So we had to incorporate that.” The outdoor ceremony included a reading of a passage from The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. Guests sat at a long picnic table in the middle of the field. ”We knew we wanted everyone to feel like they were at dinner in the place we feel most comfortable – outside in nature!” she said. Burlap table runners featured the couple’s initials and mason jars filled with white ranunculuses and craspedia. To keep warn, a bonfire was lit. Of course there were marshmallows to roast!

Jamie and Matt were married at Hartley Botanica in Somis, Calif on October 12. ”On top of the physical beauty of our venue (I remember looking up and being amazed by the hanging yellow roses above me), our officiant was able to craft such a personalized ceremony since he knows us so well,” Jamie said. “We wanted to include a ritual, so we gathered sand from both of our hometowns and combined them into one bottle during a sand ceremony.” Keeping with their rustic yet casual backyard vibe, the couple opted for an outdoor reception all because of the twinkling lights that adorned almost every tree trunk! Centerpieces featured white hydrangeas, ranunculuses, craspedia, and succulents, while at each place setting, guests received a thank-you note written on seed paper. The best part? The s’mores bar and food truck that served warm, doughy churros in three different flavors at the end of the night. See the full board here.

Stephanie + Scott: A Coral Spring Virginia Historic Home Wedding By Katie Nesbitt Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Stephanie and Scott first met at a Nationals baseball game in Washington, D.C. Scott passed by and Stephanie whispered to her friend, “Oh, he looks like fun.” Scott overheard this, and a few moments later, waltzed over to Stephanie and said,“Hi, my name is Scott and I AM fun!” What are the odds? They were married on the front lawn of Bristow Manor Golf Club this spring, which was officiated by her brother, assisted by the bride’s childhood priest. ”My brother definitely brought the house down during our ceremony – Scott and I couldn’t stop laughing,” Stephanie said. She wore a lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with Scott’s name tape sewed on the hemline while her bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched coral dresses. Besides designing the colorful invitations on recycled paper, Stephanie also designed all the signage at the reception, from the escort cards, signature cocktails, and guest book. Hydrangeas were the flowers of the day seen throughout the bouquets and centerpieces. In fact, the bride’s grandmother’s china was used too! The sweetest part? The homemade bottled vanilla favors. See the full board here.
