Nicole and Derrell were married at Secrets Aura Cozumel in Cozumel, Mexico on June 28. The bride looked stunning in a ruffled mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline and a jeweled sash. She donned her hair in a low chignon bun and carried a bouquet of red long-stemmed roses. Her ‘maids opted for various red lace dresses while the groom and his men looked dapper in gray suits with black bow ties. “Mexico is known for its beautiful and bright pops of colors, so I thought it would be a great complement for the wedding to use the color red which reminded me of Mexico,” Nicole said of her wedding inspiration. The 40 guests gathered on the pier for the intimate evening ceremony. After they officially tied the knot, a nighttime reception was held on the beach under palm trees and a gorgeous chandelier. Guests sat at a long banquet table with glass cylinder centerpieces filled with red roses. “I always loved the color white at big events because its very timeless and classic,” Nicole said of the red color scheme. “I wanted to try to keep everything as ‘clean’ as possible but adding pops of color here and there as ode to Mexico really worked.” Guests were given Mexico-inspired favors, which included bottles of tequila and mini maracas! Guests enjoyed a simple two-tier cake adorned with red roses for dessert. Nicole recommends a destination wedding for couples in the planning process! “Having a destination wedding was super fun and I believe it was less stress than a local wedding,” Nicole said.

Jennifer and Matthew were married at the DeBordieu Club in Georgetown, S.C. on October 25. Jennifer looked flawless in an A-line gown with a sweetheart neckline and a bejeweled sash. She donned her hair in an updo and carried a bouquet of white and blue-tipped hydrangeas wrapped in navy blue satin. Her ‘maids opted for navy blue floor-length chiffon gowns. The groom looked dapper in a tan suit with a blue neck tie. His men looked handsome in more casual attire, tan vested suits. “We were married on a perfect South Carolina fall day,” Jennifer said of the weather. “There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was a perfect 70 with a cool ocean breeze.” The pair exchanged vows in on the courtyard of the DeBordieu Club in front of 100 friends and family members. Guests sat in white folding chairs constructed in a semi-circle arrangement. A cocktail hour followed on the club’s porch, right around sunset. A reception followed inside with white linen covered-tables that featured ivory hydrangea arrangements in porcelain vases wrapped in burlap and blue twine. “We didn’t go overboard and our family had fun,” Jennifer said. After dining and dancing the night away, guests indulged in a five-tier white cake adorned with blue and green hydrangeas. “Don’t try to compete, show off or feel you have to go all out,” Jennifer said. What sound advice! See the full board here.

Allison and Colin were married at Aria at the Jeune Lune in Minneapolis, Minn. on February 22. Allison stunned in a vintage-inspired v-neck gown with gold lace beading. She donned her hair in a vintage glam chignon bun and wore crystal drop earrings. She carried a classic white bouquet of hydrangea and ranunculus, which had a photo of the bride’s late grandmother attached to it. Her ‘maids looked fabulous in long-sleeve champagne sequined dresses. The groom looked dapper in a dark blue pin-stripe three-piece suit, while his men donned dark suits and champagne neck ties. The pair exchanged vows at Aria, an industrial event space downtown. “The amazing beaded gold lace on my gown completely inspired the vintage glam feeling I knew would blend flawlessly with Aria’s raw space,” Allison said. They were married under three gorgeous crystal chandeliers and in front of stunning white drapery. A reception followed at the same location. There was a family photo display and vintage style furnishings throughout the space. “I like things clean, white, and fluffy. I knew I wanted a neutral palette,” Allison said. Guests sat at round tables in brown chiavari chairs with glass vase centerpieces filled with carnations, hydrangeas, Queen Anne’s lace, and gold accents. The reception also featured personalized gold foil napkins “It was amazing to see how all our personalized details came together,” Allison said. The menu reflected the places the couple has lived together, which was created by the maid of honor. The dessert display consisted of homemade cupcakes, pie pops, and an espresso cart. ” We loved sneaking off to have our little moments in the gorgeous structure,” Allison said the wedding day.
