Gina and Jonathan were married at J.Verno Studios in Pittsburgh, Penn. on September 13. ”We wanted a very modern wedding that cut out traditions to make room for our personalities,” Gina said. “We created a high-energy atmosphere from start to finish which also made the planning stress-free.” The bride wore a ruched fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls with a headband, while the groom wore a light gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Guests were greeted with the couple’s name projected on an all-white wall. “I walked down the aisle to one of my favorite electronic songs,” she said. “Jon met me halfway and escorted me the rest of the way.” They even wrote their own vows! The reception was lit with crystal chandeliers, tables were decorated with gray linens and yellow hydrangea centerpieces, and “He” and “She” signs were displayed, where each one wrote what they loved about another. For entertainment, the “shoe game” was played, and during the first dance, the bridal party joined the newlyweds on the dance floor and put on glow-in-the-dark, flashing glasses. How fun!

Stephanie + David: A Foodie Summer Canadian Restaurant Wedding By Ten 2 Ten Photography

Stephanie and David first met at work. ”I always thought that he was interested in me, but I wasn’t sold on the complications of an office romance,” Stephanie said. “In August 2009, David left the company, and we went on our first date at a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game.” Each year following, they went to a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game to celebrate their anniversary, except for their fourth, they got married at Kingsway-Lambton United Church followed by a reception at Origins. ”We wanted a fairly small wedding and had just under 100 guests with us to celebrate,” she said. “During our vows, I accidentally put David’s ring on his right ring finger. Aside from this, the day went off without any problems.” The bride wore a simple sweetheart a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a headband and drop dangling earrings, while the groom wore a black tuxedo, accessorized with a black tie and pocket square. “[The restaurant] was the perfect backdrop to the party, and we were so happy with everyone we interacted with on-staff,” Stephanie said. “Every bite of food was amazing!” Stephanie’s mother arranged all the flowers — bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces– and in lieu of a cake, cupcakes were served all because David proposed with one. How sweet, right? See the full board here.

Fayette + Mark: A Peacock-Inspired Summer Virginia Vineyards Wedding By Aaron Watson Photography
Posted by czentgraf. Filed under Real Weddings

Fayette and Mark were married at Keswick Vineyards near Charlottesville, Va last summer. “We went against all advice and held out for our dream outdoor wedding,” Fayette said. “Our risky decision paid off, as we had a clearing from the rain and clouds for a few hours.” Fayette walked down the aisle wearing an ivory peplum satin wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of Badgley Mischka brooch-detailed shoes, arm-in-arm around her parents. The interfaith Jewish-Christian ceremony featured a twist — they each broke a glass, rather than Mark performing the ritual solo. Guests kept cool with fans to beat the July heat, while the newlyweds signed their ornate marriage contract called the ketubah. Keeping with the peacock-theme, reception tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces with feathers and branches, purple table numbers and napkins, and candles. ”We didn’t end up having a guest book, but my parents surprised us with an enlarged photo of our English Bulldog, Thelma,” she said. “Guests were able to pass along their well wishes around the picture’s border.” As dinner and dancing continued through the night inside the tent, they were lifted onto chairs for one last celebratory hora, and sent off to their honeymoon with sparklers galore. See the full board here.
