Stephanie and Shaun were married at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, R.I. on July 12. The bride looked lovely in an A-line, v-neck gown accented with a crystal belt. She wore her hair in a curly updo and carried a bouquet of white roses and peonies. Her ‘maids donned short blush chiffon gowns and white orchid leis. The groom and his men looked dapper in dark three-piece suits and wore maile leis as a nod the bride’s mother’s Hawaiian heritage. Stephanie and Shaun tied the knot overlooking the Atlantic Ocean under a stone arbor adorned with flowers. “The weather on our wedding day was perfect! It was sunny with clear skies, and a light sea-breeze,” Stephanie said. “We had a gorgeous sunset that evening!” After the couple recessed down the petal-strewn aisle they enjoyed signature mint and raspberry signature cocktails around tables with textured blush linens. A reception followed under a white draped tent with chandeliers and string lights. “I have always loved the Great Gatsby, roaring ’20s glamour and knew I wanted a wedding that captured the romance and elegance of that era,” Stephanie explained. The reception was vintage travel-themed and each table was named after a place that was special to the bride and groom. Each seat was identified with a luggage tag and each table featured a postcard explaining why that particular city was so important to the newlyweds, which were made by the bride’s sister. The guests enjoyed a three-course meal, followed by a three-tier cake adorned with pastel flowers. Stephanie’s tip for engaged couples? “My best advice when planning a wedding is to invest in a GREAT photographer,” she said. See the full board here.

Amelia and Bertrand were married in a traditional ceremony at Church La Nativite de la Sainte-Vierge a La Prairie followed by an indoor reception at Espace Rive-Sud in La Prairie, Quebec, Canada on June 15. “I wanted a DIY wedding inspired by a vintage country theme,” Amelia said. The bride wore an a-line wedding gown with floral appliques, accessorized with “something blue” peep-toe heels, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. Her one and only bridesmaid wore a coral halter dress, and the bouquet featured hydrangeas and peonies with a mix of succulents. Did you notice that all the stationery is in French, including the invitations, chalkboard signage, and seating chart. “When we entered the room and saw the result of all our efforts put in place, all the little details, I was just overwhelmed,” she said. “The vision I had in mind was recreated and it was even more amazing in reality!” Tables were decorated with turquoise linens, burlap runners, and touches of lace. “We also made our table numbers which were frames on which we glued wooden numbers,” Amelia said. Even the favors too, which were caramel spreads. “I wanted a candy bar and mini cupcakes instead of a classic wedding cake,” she said. The cupcake tower was topped with none other than Lego newlyweds! See the full board here.
