Paul and Joe were married at their private residence in East Hampton, New York on September 13. One groom looked dapper in a black fitted suit and light purple tie, while the other looked just as handsome in a gray checkered suit and dark blue tie. The 65 guests in attendance sat in brown chiavari chairs with navy blue padding and burlap ribbon . “We really love our home in East Hampton and have put a lot of love and effort into the landscaping,” Paul explained. The ceremony was performed by their yoga instructor and both grooms read personal vows, which prompted a few tears from guests. A trio from the Julliard School of Music played as well. After they officially tied the knot, they hosted the reception right in their backyard! Guests sat at three different rectangular banquet tables covered in navy blue denim linens and featured hurricane lanterns and floral arrangements as centerpieces. The nearby pool had white mums floating in it, and candles around the perimeter. “Our backyard was a beautiful setting to celebrate our special event,” Paul said. After the filling family-style dinner, guests were treated to a three tier cake topped with two Adirondack chairs and other beachy elements. Tartlets and cookies were also available. Their best advice for couples on their wedding day? “Be in the moment and make sure to take time to enjoy the event privately as a couple,” he said. “Occasionally step away from the guests so you can savor and remember the incredibly special occasion.” See the full board here.

Melissa and Jay were married at Distillery District in Toronto, Canada on October 18. The bride looked flawless in a one-shoulder silk satin ruffled gown and a relaxed wavy updo. She carried a bouquet featuring garden roses, viburnum berries, and ranunculus. Her ‘maids opted for various short navy blue dresses of their choosing. The groom and his men looked dapper in dark blue suits, and the groomsmen wore suspenders without a jacket for a more casual look. “The venue inspired me. Distillery was on of the first places Jay and I went and I fell in love with the look and feel of the whole area,” Melissa explained. The aisle was lined with candles and the 120 guests sat in brown chiavari chairs. A light installation projected the couple’s names onto the exposed brick wall. A sign was placed at the beginning of the aisle that read “This is where our story begins.” Melissa’s favorite singer/songwriter also performed at the ceremony, which was a gift from the groom. Melissa got a lot of her decor ideas from the distillery itself. “We went with a them of pretty and gritty,” Melissa said. “And we had a natural backdrop of exposed brick, pipe and cement and I just wanted to enhance the natural beauty of the venue with lighting and flowers.” The two exchanged vows under a beautiful chandelier, with a reception following in the same space. Guests found their seats on a framed escort card display accented with twinkling lights. After dinner, the couple cut the naked cake and Melissa changed into a short, scalloped lace party dress for dancing. Her advice for engaged couples? “Don’t sweat the small stuff. The day is about love – so enjoy it.” See the full board here.

Cherie and Steven were married at Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville, Ga. on October 26. The bride stunned in a strapless gown accented with silver beading. She wore her hair in a chignon bun and carried a bouquet of blush and ivory roses decorated with crystals. Her ‘maids donned flowy strapless gray dresses and carried bouquets of ivory roses, lamb’s ear, and silver fern. The groom opted for a black and silver three-piece suit, while his men wore gray three-piece suits that matched the bridesmaids dresses.  The bride arrived to the ceremony with her father on a horse-drawn carriage. The pair exchanged vows on the lawn of the plantation in front of a green and white floral arch. Guests were seated in white folding chairs that were marked with white hydrangeas, seeded eucalyptus, and silver fern. After the knot was tied, the newlyweds took a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride around the plantation. A reception followed outside under an array of oak trees decorated with twinkling lights. Guests were escorted to round tables boasting white linens with a silver swirly pattern and white branch centerpieces. The bride and groom had their first dance on the black-and-white checkered dance floor, and cut a classic white tiered cake. Guests also indulged in truffles, cupcakes, and tarts. They were given small silver bags to fill up with pecans as a favor. At the end of the night, everyone participated in a Latin tradition called “The Crazy Hour,” in which the bride and groom encouraged their guests to dance with them in crazy costumes.

Hannah + Ryan: Spring Virginia Mountain Elopement by Betty Clicker Photography

Hannah and Ryan were married at the Blue Ridge Mountains in Buena Vista, Va on May 9. Hannah looked radiant in her embroidered short-sleeve dress and adorned her wavy hair with a beautiful floral crown. The groom opted for a casual look with a newsboy cap, white button-down shirt, and green bow tie. “It was so surreal. And nerve wracking! We made it to our spot and were blown away at how pretty it was,” Hannah said of their ceremony location. No guests attended their nuptials, it was just the photographer, her assistant, and the officiant in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The officiant read something the couple had written together to open the ceremony. Hannah and Ryan then read the vows they had written for one another. After the knot was officially tied, they enjoyed a picnic in a clearing in the mountains, complete with a cake of course! “We basically picked the things that were most important to us and decided to forget about the rest!” At the picnic, Ryan gave Hannah a belated engagement ring. How adorable? Following their private picnic, they went out to eat in Charlottesville and called family and friends to share the news. “Do what makes you happy as a couple and don’t worry too much about anything else,” Hannah advised. “Write everything down so you don’t forget any little details about your wedding day!” What a simple and lovely sentiment. See the full board here.
