Vy and David were married at Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, Calif. on November 2. ”We became friends over a mutual love of coffee, movies, music, and Disney, and realized that we also made great traveling companions,” Vy said. “After several trips throughout Asia, we became inseparable.” The bride wore a strapless lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with her hair sideswept in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore chiffon navy blue dresses with hi-lo hemlines and carried bouquets of roses, freesiaas, and seeded eucalyptus wrapped in satin. ”Our wedding inspiration was our theme of ‘favorite things,’” she said. “We wanted to incorporate the different aspects of our relationship that we enjoyed and wanted to share and highlight them with our family and friends.” Notice the Lego 3-D superhero figurine on this groomsmen’s lapel? Each one also wore revovler and holster socks. ”We got married on a warm November day,” Vy said. “Much warmer for a fall day than we had anticipated! Some even traveled as far as Vietnam and the Philippines to be a part of our special day.” The ceremony arch was drapped with fabric and pinned with pom poms, aisles were lined with craft beer bottles, and folding chairs included a crossword puzzle. ”Our fan programs featured a ‘Do you know the couple?’ crossword puzzle for guests to spend time playing before the ceremony started,” she said. After the outdoor nuptials, cocktail hour began with signature mojito drinks. Guests found their seats at the reception via “Admit One” tickets. ”I wanted to keep things simple,” Vy said. Table names were movie posters, and at each place setting, there was coffee favor bags. ”Neither of us are fans of cake, so we opted for a desser bar featuring our favorite sweets,” she said. Desserts included cheesecake, cupcakes, lemon tartlets, and macarons. See the full board here.

 Mallory and TJ were married at Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, N.J. on May 25. ”After that first date, we were both smitten,” Mallory said. “We saw each other a few other times that month and things quickly progressed into a wonderful relationship. We had been dating for a year and a half when he popped the question!” The bride wore a strapless satin mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a white vest and tie. Bridesmaids wore short navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and hydrangeas. ”I just wanted something simple, elegant and classic,” she said. “My approach was to stay on a budget and keep things simple while adding fun creative touches.” Guests were greeted at the ceremony with a sign that said, “Today, two families become one. We ask that you please pick a seat not a side.” ”Our wedding day was the most perfect day,” she said. “The sun was shining, the sky was beautiful blue, and the breeze was just enough to keep comfortable under the sunny skies and considering we were married outdoors – it was perfect.” Can’t you tell that it was full of laughter — and some tears? Following the nuptials, cocktail hour began, then the reception inside the ballroom. There was even a cigar bar! The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Close Your Eyes” by Michael Buble, and cut their four-tiered monogrammed cake in between toasts. ”I would not have changed a thing!” Mallory said.

Alexis + Josh: A Cheerful Sunshine Yellow Spring Ohio Historic Home Wedding By Maiko Media

Alexis and Josh were married at The Glendale Lyceum in Glendale, Ohio on May 24. ”We were having an outdoor ceremony in May, in Ohio, who knows what the weather would be like at that time?” Alexis said. “We had a very solid backup plan in case it rained, but no bride wants to have to do that. All week everyone kept asking if I looked at the weather, and I kept responding ‘No, I am not looking until Thursday night.’ It ended up being a perfect day!” The bride wore a strapless tulle ball gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long yellow chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, roses, and stocks. ”I would not change a single thing about my wedding. Well, except for the groom’s and groomsmen’s socks. They were The University of Michigan socks, and I am an Ohio State fan,” she said. Following the proceedings, the reception took place inside the tea room. Tables were decorated with gray linens, navy blue napkins, tall floral centerpieces atop mirrors, and homemade buckeye ball favors at each place setting. ”I graduated college with an art studio and art education degree, so I knew I would be coming up with a lot of the details myself,” she said. “My husband however is very traditional, so I knew we would have to incorporate both of our personalities in the wedding. I knew I wanted bright colors and a very ‘spring-like’ feel.” Next to the gifts and cards, guests were encouraged to sign a book filled with photos, and were showcased on a map of exactly where they traveled from. The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar, and exited amongst a sea of sparklers at the end of the night, ready for their honeymoon in Jamaica. ”Not worrying about anything allowed me to enjoy marrying my best friend and really appreciate him and the people around me,” Alexis said.

Kelly + Shaun: A Shabby Chic Pink Spring South Carolina Plantation Wedding By Aaron Nicholas Photography
Posted by czentgraf. Filed under Real Weddings

 Kelly and Shaun were married at Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, S.C. on April 13. ”With me being from Connecticut and Shaun being from Kentucky, we decided to get married in Charleston because that was where we met and lived throughout our entire relationship,” Kelly said. “It was also a good neutral location for both our families and many of our friends.” The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with statement earrings and bracelet, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath. ”I knew that I wanted the quintessential Southern wedding,” she said. “I knew that I wanted blush, ivory, and gold. I knew I wanted sprawling lawns, wraparound porches, mason jars, a fire pit, and dancing under the stars. OWA was the perfect venue, and I don’t think I could have asked for anything more.” Guests were greeted with a wooden sign post that said, “1st kiss and 1st dance,” and encouraged to sit wherever they liked. ”It was a perfect, sunny spring day at about 78 degrees,” Kelly said. “We could not have asked for a better day.” Cocktail hour began with spiked sweet tea made with Firefly Vodka, of course! Reception tables were decorated with white linens, mini glass vase and vessel centerpieces, and mercury glass votive candles. ”If I had to name a few words that I had in mind while planning our wedding, I would say that romantic and Southern topped the list,” she said. “I would say that shabby chic, flowy, breezy, vintage, and rustic also played a part.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing,” and ended the night with a sparkler send-off. Then, it was off to Hawaii! See the full board here.
