Sarah and Jacob were married at Basilica of St. Lawrence with a reception following at On Broadway in Asheville, N.C. on August 2. The bride stunned in an A-line gown with a satin skirt and an off-the-shoulder illusion lace bodice. She carried a classic bouquet of ivory and blush roses and white freesia, her hair donned in a low updo. Her ‘maids opted for satin navy blue v-neck dresses. The groom and his men looked dapper in gray suits with navy blue ties of various patterns. “We were hoping to have a classic wedding with a focus on the people who have loved and supported us throughout the years: our family and friends,” Sarah said. The pair exchanged vows in a traditional ceremony in front of 200 guests. “We were of the mindset, the more the merrier!” Sarah explained of the guest count. A reception followed at a reception venue close by. Guests were greeted by a chalkboard sign, and a re-purposed suitcase to place their cards. In lieu of a traditional guestbook, a framed map of the United States was used in its place so friends and family members could sign over their hometowns. Escort cards were displayed on dark wooden window shutters. Tables were covered in white linens featuring lace and burlap table runners and floral centerpieces. “We wanted everyone to laugh, love, eat, drink, and dance,” Sarah said of the reception. Following dinner, guests took over the dance floor and indulged in three different flavors of cake, strawberry buttercream, red velvet, and carrot! Sarah said a wedding is all about the people, not the details. “I think it’s really important to have the people who you love and are important to you present,” Sarah said. See the full board here.

Niyati and Shashank were married at The Westin Pasadena in Pasadena, Calif. on August 31. Niyati looked beautiful in a traditional bright pink and orange sari. She accessorized with a jeweled headpiece, a gold collar necklace, matching bangles, and henna art on her hands. The groom looked handsome in a white sherwani with gold embroidery, a red scarf, and a bejeweled red wedding turban. “We wanted a bright, colorful, and fun wedding. It was really important for us to enjoy the wedding and make sure our guests were having fun,” Niyati explained. The couple incorporated Indian and Hindu traditions into their wedding ceremony, which was complete with a baraat, where the groom rode  in on a horse and the groom’s family danced around him. “Even though it was hot, Shashank’s family participated fully in the baraat by dancing for almost an hour!” Niyati said. The bride was then walked to the alter under a brightly colored scarf. Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the hotel for the 220 family members and friends in attendance. Guests sat at tables with orange and yellow floral centerpieces. The newlyweds surprised everyone during their first dance by breaking into a flash mob with family members to the song “Happy” by Pharrell. After dinner, traditional Indian desserts were passed around on a silver platter. Niyati advises couples not to sweat the small stuff. “Try to remember that it is your wedding but don’t be too rigid about every little detail.” See the full board here.

Janke + Mitchell: Blue and White Chic Australian Spring Wedding by iZO Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Untitled-3Photos: iZO Photography; Reception Venue & Catering: Moore and Moore Cafe; Groom’s Attire: Ralph Lauren and ASOSCake: Sherbet Bake Shop; Gown: Custom Designed; Flowers: Family Friend, Noelene Fisher; Bridesmaid Dresses: ASOS; Ceremony Venue: Fremantle Town Hall; Officiant: Ps. Ken Lee; Reception Music: Ben Lee

Janke and Mitchell were married at Fremantle Town Hall, followed by a reception at Moore and Moore Cafe in Fremantle, Western Australia on April 19. Janke looked stunning in a custom cap sleeve gown with a scoop neck and lace peplum waist. She donned her hair in a fishtail braid and carried a beautiful bouquet of proteas, roses, and seeded eucalyptus. “I wanted to use proteas as a focus as I am originally from South Africa,” Janke explained. Her ‘maids opted for short sleeve mint and navy beaded dresses and carried bouquets of king proteas and baby’s breath tied together with a long navy ribbon. The groom and his men looked handsome in fitted navy suits and skinny black neck ties. The ceremony took place at the Fremantle Town Hall, which features a stage with bronzed curtains. “We remembered the Fremantle Town Hall – a beautiful old venue in the center of town…making a pretty amazing backdrop for a wedding ceremony,” Janke said of the space. As the pair recessed down the aisle after the knot was tied, friends and family tossed eucalyptus leaves at the newlyweds. A cocktail-style reception followed, which allowed guests to mingle throughout the evening, versus sitting down at a single table for the entire reception. As an alternative to the traditional guest book, Janke and Mitchell asked friends and family to take a photo of themselves and write their name! They enjoyed signature cocktails, Red Bull Vodkas and Pimm’s, as well as a mixture of local and South African cuisine. Various cakes were arranged on a dessert table around the wedding cake for guests to indulge in. Janke suggests not stressing out about the little details. “You don’t need it all, we went without a lot of the trimmings and no on even noticed,” she said. See the full board here.
