Megan and Marouane were married at the Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley, Calif. on October 13. ”We were incredibly lucky with the weather,” Megan said. “October in Napa Valley is just beautiful, and we had perfect, sunny weather and not a cloud in sight all weekend.” The couple planned their destination wedding in six months all the way from Texas. “We wanted to give our small guest list an excuse for a little bit of a vacation!” she said. The bride wore a satin v-neck Amy Kuschel wedding gown, accessorized with a bell charm bracelet from her grandmother and carried an all-white calla lily bouquet, while the groom wore a gray suit. The outdoor ceremony took place on the scenic terrace, which features amazing panoramic views. Following the intimate nuptials, guests were served hors d’oeuvres, including mini toasts topped with caviar and creme fraiche. Inside, they sat at one long banquet table complete with different varieties of wine, of course. See the full board here.

Nicoleta and Joseph were married in a traditional Greek ceremony at Saint John the Baptist followed by a reception at Jackson’s Bistro in Tampa, Fla. on May 11. They first met at medical school in the Cayman Islands. Turns out, they were both from the same hometown! ”With our demanding careers now in place, I couldn’t imagine going through this with anyone else!” Nicoleta said. She wore a satin fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls. Her shoes of choice? Of course, Badgley Mischka petal pumps! Bridesmaids wore long blush chiffon dresses and carried rose and hydrangea bouquets. Groomsmen looked suave in their gray three-piece tuxedos, accessorized with rose boutonnieres. ”The inspiration for my wedding was ‘vintage chic,’” she said. “I wanted my day to be surrounded by light, airy, yet flirty colors of pink, and silver to have the feeling of pure love and romance.” Reception tables were decorated with silver trays, tea cups, framed table numbers, and baby’s breath centerpieces. Each one featured different vessels and vases to create variety for the guests. See the full board here.

Amanda and Tyler were married in a converted warehouse with exposed brick walls, steel trusses, wood ceilings, and concrete floors on December 31 — New Year’s Eve. The bride wore a sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls along with a a pearl statement necklace and a pair of blush Badgley Mischka strappy sandals. Bridesmaids chose their own dresses to flatter their figures. Of course, glitter was encouraged! As guests arrived, they were greeted with the words, “Come as you are, stay as long as you can, we’re all family, so no seating plan.” The ceremony was glowing with cafe lights, while the reception was lit with crystal chandeliers. Wine bottles were spray painted in different colors and filled with roses, astilbes, anemones, and peonies. Table numbers also served as candle holders. Clever, right? Decorative frames hung above the dessert display of cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops, and kazoos and party hats were ready to go for the stroke of midnight. See the full board here.
