Lori and Matt were married at the Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, Vt. on July 11. Lori looked breathtaking in a chiffon A-line gown with lace cap sleeves and a satin sash. She wore her hair in an updo and donned a short veil. Her ‘maids stunned in short chiffon dresses in various shades of blush and ivory. They carried bouquets of baby’s breath and floral clutches with cloth flowers, while Lori carried a romantic bouquet of soft roses. The groom and his men looked dapper in tan three-piece suits and pink ties. The couple officially tied the knot on the lawn of the Woodstock Inn in front of 160 friends and family members sitting in white folding chairs. The aisle was marked with white hydrangeas and spray roses. “We wanted a classy but casual wedding,” Lori said. “We were not overly concerned with details. We wanted the overall feel to be romantic and lovely.” A reception followed inside the inn, where guests sat at elegant round tables featuring floral centerpieces. The pair sat at a sweetheart table decorated with ivory linens and votive candles. After dinner, guests indulged in a three-tier cake adorned with ombre macaroons and a white hydrangea on top. Lori’s advice to engaged couples is simple and to the point, “Enjoy the day, get a wedding planner!” See the full board here.

Bank; Flowers: Soulard Florist; Jewelry: David Kodner; DJ: Crucial Entertainment; Cake: Sarah’s Cake Shop; Bridesmaid Dresses: Custom dresses from Little Ruffles Bridal on Etsy; Hair: Rachel Shepard; Makeup: Stephanie Jacobsmeyer

 Erica and John were married at the Palladium Saint Louis in St. Louis, Mo. on February 14. The bride looked stunning in an all-lace strapless gown with long wavy hair and a beaded trim veil. She carried a bouquet of roses, peonies, silver brunia balls, hypericum berries, and lamb’s ear. Her closest girlfriends opted for custom chiffon gowns in lavender and gray. The groom and his men donned gray suits with mix-and-match purple patterned neck ties. “I loved being hands on, fully involved in the creation and design of my wedding,” Erica said. “Though I drove myself crazy doing all the small projects, I would do those projects again!” The pair tied the knot in a big modern space with purple uplighting. A reception followed, and the wedding party sat at a head table. Other guests looked to the chalkboard to find their escort cards, where they were then led to round tables with hydrangea and curly willow centerpieces. “We strove to create a wedding which reflected our unique and individual personalities blended together as one,” Erica explained. The room was full of wintry details, including a snowflake light pattern that was projected on the wall. The groom’s little sister played Chinese music during dinner to keep guests entertained. After they ate, the newlyweds cut their three-tier cake adorned with flowers. Erica’s best advice? “Remember that the day is about you and your husband. Make it a reflection of yourself and your personality.” We couldn’t agree more! See the full board here.

Sara and Kevin were married at the Hummingbird House in Austin, Texas on June 21. The bride looked radiant in a lace, A-line gown with an illusion lace back and cap sleeves. Sara amped up her bridal look with a sparkly crystal belt and wore her hair in an intricate updo. She carried a clean bouquet of white peonies tied together with a white satin ribbon. Her ‘maids donned magenta chiffon dresses with ruched bodices. They carried bouquets featuring peonies, roses, and stock that were tied together with a purple satin ribbon. The groomed looked dapper in a light purple button down, plaid tie, and charcoal suit vest. His men sported light gray vested suits with purple ties. Sara and Kevin tied the knot in an intimate garden setting in front of 70 family members and friends, and even arranged for a saxophone quartet to play jazz music before the ceremony. “We knew we wanted to get married in a beautiful setting that would be serene and sacred,” Sara explained. They exchanged vows in front of an iron arbour adorned with orchids and a crystal chandelier. The aisle was strewn with white flower petals and guests sat in white folding chairs. Following the ceremony, a tented reception was held at the same location. In lieu of a classic guest book, guests were asked to sign paper hearts which they placed in a shadow box. Each table featured mirrored trays, ivory flowers, and wooden table numbers. Sara and Kevin sat at a sweetheart table featuring chair signs that read “Bride and Groom.” When it came to food, variety was the main priority. “Kevin and I love cooking and eating healthy,” Sara said. “We have a lot of Vegan friends and went out of our way to make sure everyone had plenty of options.” For dessert, guests chose between lemon, red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla cake. They even offered vegan cupcakes for those who couldn’t indulge in cake! As favors, guests received personalized olive oil and vinegar. The bride and groom even choreographed their first dance! “Our night was magical and romantic and we are so grateful that we both showed up to that bowling alley four years ago,” Sara said of her big day.

Francisca + Robert: A Glamorous Pink Summer California Inn Wedding By The Bird & The Bear – Photography & Films

Francisca and Robert were married at the Inn at Park Winters in Winters, Calif. on September 7. ”I really envisioned a vintage country wedding and the location gave me that,” Francisca said. The bride wore a strapless lace mermaid wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down with a jeweled headband and floor-length veil, while the groom wore three-piece black suit, accessorized with a tie. Bridesmaids wore short purple chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, mums, and altromerias. The ceremony took place underneath an altar draped with white gauze and crystal beading. “It was an extremely warm day! Luckily, it was in the late afternoon, so it had cooled off a bit by the time the wedding rolled around,” she said. “The ceremony was lovely, and I was very excited to see all of the details of a year and a half’s worth of planning come to fruition.” The reception was oh-so sweet! Why? Because tables were decorated with gray linens, chargers (topped with a candy apple), centerpieces with mirrors accents, and mercury glass votive candles. “The florist did such a great job,” she said. “They really helped in transforming and adding to the ambience.” “What I was most excited about was the cake, dessert table, and candy bar,” Francisca said. “I had worked with Chanelle Molina of just stick a fork in it, and I couldn’t wait to see what she had come up with. Her set up was fabulous, and very easy to grab something here and there without it looking messy or empty.” The candy bar was inspired from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, including a framed quote that said, “Candy is dandy.” Guests danced the night away after dinner on the dance floor, and were sent home with do-it-yourself honey jar favors attached with “Thanks for sharing in our sweet beginnings” tags. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Pick one or two things that are pricey and make them your priority,” she said. “Be specific, but also realize that not everything will go exactly as planned. Lastly, you will always run late. Don’t worry about it. It will all be okay!” See the full board here.
