Betsy and Adam were married at CeNita Vineyards in Cleveland, Ga. on June 1. Betsy looked gorgeous in an ivory lace and organza strapless fit ‘n flare dress. She accessorized with a silver belt and crystal necklace, and wore her hair in a low updo. She carried a bouquet of peach and pink garden roses, white pincushions, white peonies, and pink astilbe. Her ‘maids opted for a unique skirt and shirt combo, donning light pink skirts and taupe scoop-neck shirts. They accessorized with various statement necklaces and carried bouquets of ranunculus, peonies, stock, and dusty miller. The groom and his men were clad in dark suits and dark blue ties, the groom stood out with a plaid pastel neck tie. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 guests in front of a wooden cross. Guests sat in white folding chairs marked by pastel floral arrangements made by the groom’s family. “I have always loved antiques, so I knew the vintage feel was what I wanted to go for,” Betsy said. “Most of the decor came from various family members.” A vintage welcome table greeted guests at the reception which featured framed chalkboard signage and white porcelain plates for guests to sign. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and a blue and white striped table runner. “I really just wanted a wedding that was relaxing and fun,” Betsy said. “I wanted people to come, sit down, have a good meal and enjoy themselves on our special day.” There were multiple elaborate desserts for guests to indulge in. They filled up on a two-tier white buttercream cake adorned with pastel flowers, a two-tier square chocolate mousse cake topped with fruit, and miniature pies. After eating and dancing the night away, guests were given peanut favors and held sparklers for Betsy and Adam’s send-off, for which Betsy changed into a lace and tulle tea-length dress. “It will all come together,” Betsy said. “I think I have told that to every bride that I have talked to since I got married, but it is so true!” See the full board here.

Jessica and Galen were married at the Crossed Keys Inn in Andover, New Jersey on August 17. Jessica looked stunning in an all-lace fit ‘n flare strapless gown accented with a satin sash. Her hair was in a curly partial updo and accessorized with crystal drop earrings. She carried a bouquet of au lait dahlias, garden roses, silver brunia berries, tied together with a lace ribbon. Her ‘maids wore short blush chiffon dresses with various necklines. The groom and his men looked dapper in dark suits and neck ties. The pair tied the knot in a garden at the inn behind an old barn. “We wanted the aesthetic to reflect a vintage chic feel,” Jessica said. “We didn’t want a sleek, modern, fancy theme. Rather, we were attracted to the simple charm of an outdoor tent wedding that would allow us to infuse small, unique design touches.” A tented reception followed at the inn. A welcome table displayed a framed escort card board, photos of the couple, and mercury glass votive candles. In lieu of a traditional guestbook, the couple had their guests sign a black and white tree print. Friends and family sat at round tables with white linens and gray table runners, with flowers and wooden table numbers as the centerpieces. Guests enjoyed a three-course meal and danced the night away on the dance floor. “The band gathered all the Muhlenberg alumni on the dance floor and with about 40 friends from our Alma mater in one big huddle, we could really feel the love of our friends who have become our family,” Jessica said. For dessert a three tier cake was served and it was adorned with pink and white flowers. “Remember, you’re going to have a blast no matter what unforeseen circumstances arise,” Jessica said.

Anna + Travis: Handmade Intimate Backyard Michigan Wedding by Dan and Melissa Photography

Anna and Travis were married in the bride’s parents’ backyard in Alpena, Mich. on July12. The bride looked radiant in a beaded cap sleeve gown with a side braid and a beaded crystal hairpiece. She carried a bouquet of ivory roses, two-tone chrysanthemums, waxflower, and bay leaves. Her ‘maids donned short sage green chiffon dresses with various necklines. The groom looked dapper in a dark suit and a navy blue tie, and his men looked handsome in gray vested suits with blue-checkered shirts and navy neck ties. “Getting married at my childhood home in northern Michigan was the most meaningful decision I made while planning this wedding,” Anna said. “I had had so many wonderful memories in my life with growing up in the woods, and this would be another one to add.” Anna and Travis’ ceremony was filled with sentimental homemade touches. The path leading to the ceremony was lined with wooden signs that denoted how close they were to the ceremony site, which was on the front lawn overlooking Thunder Bay River. When guests arrived they were encouraged to pick a seat, not a side by a framed chalkboard sign. They were given ceremony programs which served double-duty as fans. The 100 guests took their seats in white folding chairs, and watched as an adorable flower girl and ring bearer made their way down the aisle. Anna and Travis exchanged vows under a beautiful birch arbor that the groom and his father made together. “Standing on the river’s edge with the breeze blowing, the birds chirping, and even some canoes riding by while I stared into my husband’s eyes was probably my favorite part of the day,” Anna noted. After they officially tied the knot, guests were occupied by lawn games and cocktail hour as the bridal party went off to take pictures. Guests were given mason jars to fill up with mock mojitos, peach bellinis, or iced tea. At the reception, guests picked up succulent escort cards, and were given individual lunchboxes with a gourmet sandwich and other sides inside. They sat at round tables with white linens and burlap table runners. Each table featured a mercury glass vase with wildflowers and blue mason jars. “I had decided to make this amazing pinwheel backdrop for behind the head table at the reception…the end result became one of the most talked about pieces at our wedding. It was totally worth the effort,” Anna said. For dessert, the groom’s grandmother made three different flavored cakes including a carrot cake, adorned with a topper featuring the couple; a lemon-thyme cake, topped with lemon slices; and a naked cake, topped with berries. The night ended setting off fireworks and sparklers, an appropriate touch for the weekend right after July 4. Anna’s best planning advice? “Don’t over do it. Sometimes simple is better,” Anna said.
