Michelle and Walter were married in the Penthouse of the AT&T Tower in Los Angeles, Calif. The bride looked stunning in a strapless fit ‘n flare ruched gown. She wore her hair down in loose waves and carried a yellow and white bouquet accented with greenery. Her ‘maids donned light blue chiffon dresses. The groom and his men looked handsome in a three-piece gray suit with a yellow necktie. The groomsmen also wore green and yellow plaid socks to show a pop of personality. Family and friends gathered in the penthouse and sat in silver chiavari chairs as Michelle and Walter exchanged vows. Two adorable flower girls sprinkled flower petals down the aisle, and a little gentlemen carried a sign that read “Here comes the bride.” After the ceremony, guests made their way to the back-to-school-themed reception where they were guided by mock hall passes to their seats.  The pair had guests sign a yearbook instead of a guestbook, and had them fill out Mad Libs cards to give advice and well wishes. The round tables featured yellow chevron-patterned runners and light blue napkins. Each table was decorated with floral centerpieces that matched the color scheme and was named after a place that was significant to the couple. Michelle and Walter’s chairs had school backpacks on the back of them. Guests were given personalized mint tins as a favor. The dessert display had everything from shooters to cake pops, and even included a three-tiered cake adorned with fresh florals and a fun topper. The night at the penthouse was one Michelle and Walter will never forget! See the full board here.

Krisztina + Adam: Orange and Blue Shabby Chic Rustic Ranch Wedding by Claire Pacelli Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Krisztina and Adam were married at Skyline Ranch in Groveland, Fla. on May 26. The bride wore a strapless gown with ruching and embellishment, and wore her hair in a curly side-swept ponytail adorned with orange and white flowers. The groom wore gray dress pants and a matching vest, ditching the jacket for a more casual look. Guests were greeted at the ceremony by a rustic welcome table, as well as a vintage gift table featuring a suitcase and decorative bunting. Instead of a traditional guest book, the couple asked guests to leave their fingerprint on a drawing of a tree. The path to the ceremony had wooden signs with quotes painted on them. The programs were kept in embroidered burlap covers, which were made by the bride and her sister. “The inspiration behind the wedding was a molding of Adam’s and my unique personalities,” Krisztina explained. “I had recently became interested in antiques. I loved finding old items and refurbishing them into something new. This carried over to my ideas for planning the wedding. While on the other hand my husband loves the forest/woods.” After tying the knot in front of 160 family members and friends, guests made their way to the reception. Games such as corn hole and checkers were available to play. Guests were escorted to their tables by plantable seed keys that the bride and maid-of-honor crafted themselves. The tables were decorated with burlap runners and floral glass jar centerpieces atop wood slices.  Krisztina and Adam’s wedding was a family project of sorts. “There was not a single item present that a family member did not help create,” Krisztina said. “It makes it more special that the whole family helped create the special day rather than buying all the decorations, clothes, etc.” The couple also offered a candy buffet to those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth. The bride and groom left their reception in the most romantic way, under a line of sparklers! Krisztina’s tip for couples planning their wedding? “Mold the wedding to create a way to show your guests that this day is about two unique people joining to become one.” What a great approach!

Darya and Cameron tied the knot at a private residence on Cascade Lake in Donnelley, Idaho followed by a reception at The Ashley Inn in Cascade, Idaho on May 31. “We wanted to capture our love for the outdoors by getting married outside on a private property…surrounded by all our loved ones,” Darya said. The bride looked radiant in an ombre tulle ball gown. She wore her hair down in soft waves and accessorized with a floral hair wreath. She carried a bouquet of ivory peonies and pink garden roses. Her ‘maids donned long blush gowns of their choosing, Darya just asked that they all be long and in the same color family. The groom and his men looked handsome in three-piece tan suits with light blue neck ties. The 150 guests gathered at the private residence to watch Darya and Cameron literally tie the knot- the couple had a hand fasting ceremony as part of their vows. The couple also had their dogs act as the ring bearer and flower girl. “It got a little blustery during our ceremony since we were on the edge of the lake but it ended up being a gorgeous day afterwards and apparently the wind just helped showcase my beautiful dress even more,” Darya described. After they officially became husband and wife, the couple held a reception at The Ashley Inn. The decor showed off their love for nature with pine cones, moss, and wood as the centerpieces at each of the round tables. They offered unique alternatives for dessert, a s’mores bar and dessert shooters. Darya’s advice to engaged couples? “Take moments out of the whirlwind madness and look around and take deep breaths and take it all in.” See the full board here.

Claire + Jonathan: Intimate Traditional Mississippi Wedding by Grace Photography

Claire and Jonathan were married at St. Martin’s Chapel, followed by a reception at The Chimneys in Bay St. Louis, Miss. on May 24. For Claire, the church was love at first sight. “From the moment I saw it, it sealed the deal for wanting to have a small wedding,” Claire said. “It was straight out of a story book, from the long winding brick path to the beautiful garden surrounding it, all while overlooking the water.” The bride stunned in a full lace gown with a queen anne neckline. She added many personal touches to her dress including a vintage clasp, satin buttons, and a satin sash. She wore her hair in a simple updo and carried a bouquet of peonies, roses, and anemones, among other soft-colored blooms. Her ‘maids wore gray and blush dresses of their choice and put together their own bouquets. The groom wore a navy blue suit while his men opted for gray ones. Claire and Jonathan were married in front of just 20 guests and decided to do something unique for their ceremony. They incorporated a bonsai tree that Claire had given Jonathan early in their relationship. “Instead of a unity candle at our ceremony, we changed things up a little,” Claire said. ” We asked both parents to provide soil from each of their gardens and poured it over our tree during the ceremony.” After they tied the knot, family and friends attended a sit-down dinner at The Chimneys where they enjoyed traditional southern food and homemade cupcakes. The best advice Claire received while wedding planning? “My mom gave us some refreshing advice: ‘It only takes two people to get married—just do what makes you happy.’ After all, your wedding shouldn’t be about everyone else, it should be for you.” See the full board here.
