Taia and Tyler were married at the Museum of the City of New York in New York, NY on October 4. The bride looked gorgeous in a more casual get-up complete with a knee-length silk dress, a white cardigan, and blue lace peep-toe heels. Her hair was done in a single braid and adorned with white flowers. She carried a colorful bouquet of purple dinner plate dahlias, disianthus, and bupleurum. The groom looked dapper in a dark blue suit with a purple neck tie. The pair tied the knot in front of 80 guests in the garden at the museum. “We really wanted to have a small wedding of only our closest friends and family,” Taia said. Close friends of the couple officiated the ceremony and incorporated other loved ones as well. A reception followed inside which featured twinkling lights throughout the space. “Our focus was on having good food and drinks in a comfortable environment,” Taia said of the reception. The tables featured red floral arrangements and votive candles. The bride’s best advice? “Don’t make your own invitations unless you are having fewer than 50 people!” See the full board here.

Guests were given parasols to keep the sun out of their eyes as they looked on. “I wanted a very romantic, midsummer nights dream look to the wedding,” Loryn said. “Vines, loose bouquets, soft colors- all very dreamy.” Guests looked to re-purposed windows decorated with paper garland to find their seats. The colorful centerpieces were made of coral and blush roses, pale pink dahlias, white pincushions, and greenery. cornhole and a photo booth were also provided for non-dancing guests. “It mattered a lot to us that the food and music were good, and that everyone had a good time,” Loryn said of their wedding day.

Liz and Ryan were married at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown, CT on November 9. The bride looked stunning in a strapless tiered organza gown, a low chignon bun, and a cathedral length veil. She carried a fall-inspired bouquet of dahlias, daisies, celosia, eucalyptus, and pinecones. Her ‘maids donned gray chiffon gowns with various necklines. The groom and his men were clad in dark vested suits, bow ties, and boutonnieres of dried leaves and wildflowers. “Our approach to our wedding was low-key elegance,” Liz said of the wedding day. “We knew we wanted a beautiful rustic setting, and also a one-stop shop, so our guests could arrive and just have a great time. The Barns at Wesleyan Hills was a perfect setting because it allowed us to do the ceremony and reception in the same location.” After a short ceremony officiated by the bride’s brother in front of 120 friends and family members, a cocktail hour followed. The reception took place inside the barn where guests sat at long banquet tables. “Our decorations were simple and personal…and the event focused on everything we love: good food, good drink, good music, good friends,” Liz said of the reception. Tables featured whimsical centerpieces made of tree rounds from the bride’s parents backyard, antique lanterns, and mismatched clocks. A festive fall arrangement of ferns, lotus pods, daisies, dahlias, pinecones, and purple wildflowers were also featured. For dessert, guests enjoyed a macaroon tower and a pecan pie to celebrate Ryan’s birthday, which was two days earlier. The couple was really happy with the way the day turned out. “We were really happy with the end result: a gorgeous setting and a raucous fun party,” Liz said. See the full board here.

Diana + Ryan: Midwestern Rustic Chic Summer Wedding by Impressions Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Diana and Ryan were married at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church followed by a reception at Armory in La Mars, Iowa on August 30. The bride wore her mother’s dress which was an A-line gown with lace detailing. an overlay, and a jeweled belt. She donned her hair in a classic bun and carried a bright bouquet of yellow roses, mums, goldenrod, and hydgrangeas. Her bridesmaids wore dresses of every color and length. “”I decided to choose a color scheme and allow my bridesmaids to find something that they loved and would hopefully wear again,” Diana said of their attire. The groom and his men were clad in white button down shirts, gray dress pants, and suspenders. A traditional church ceremony was held in front of 450 guests. “Because we are from a small town, we are blessed to be surrounded by many family and friends,” Diana said. A reception followed in a big open barn, which meant it was up to Diana and Ryan to fill the space with furniture and decor. “It required quite a bit of TLC and moving in of a lot of large pieces such as picnic tables, a bar, large spools for standing tables, pallets, old doors, and pieces of furniture,” Diana said of the process. Luckily their extended family pitched in with set up and tear down. The space featured a vintage desk doubling as a welcome table- which held an old wooden box for cards, and a guest book featuring photos of the newlyweds. Guests sat at wooden benches with lace linens and wood slices and candles as the centerpieces. “We love simple yet elegant as well as the country chic and rustic elegance,” Diana said. A table was set up featuring old family wedding photos in vintage frames. Aside from the brick-oven pizza that was served, there was also a popcorn bar, a dessert bar, and a fully-stocked drink bar where homemade wine was served.  Family and friends were able to take home personalized koozies and popcorn bags. Diana’s best advice? “Don’t be a hero and try to do it on your own. People want to help.” See the full board here.
