Dresden and Peter were married on Steam Gun Beach followed by a reception at Port Royal Golf Club in Hilton Head, S.C. on May 10. The bride looked radiant in a strapless sweetheart drop waist gown. She pulled her hair in a partial updo and carried a bouquet of pink and purple hydrangeas tied with a tulle ribbon (which was put together by her parents). Her ‘maids donned navy blue one-shoulder dresses and carried preppy pink hydrangea bouquets. The groom and his men looked dapper in light pink pants, dark jackets, and blue bow ties. The wedding took place right on the beach in front of a bamboo chuppah as 100 guests watched in folding chairs. For Dresden, this location was an easy decision. “I grew up going to Hilton Head every summer since I was born and always had said I wanted a wedding on the beach there,” she explained. Young gentlemen in pink bow ties carried a banner down the aisle that read “Here comes the bride.” After officially tying the knot, the wedding party rode in style on a red trolley to the reception. The reception tablescapes featured various beach decor such as seashells and starfish. There were also votive candles inside white lanterns for a beachy effect. The three-tier blue cake was adorned with seashells and starfish as well. Guests filled favor bags with various candy from the display Dresden and Peter created, they also offered them glow sticks to use on the dance floor. Talk about creative! “Stick to what you have always imagined ,” Dresden encourages. “Everyone will be trying to talk you into what they have envisioned for the wedding, but you want it to be the perfect day.” See the full board here.

Molly and Ben were married at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield in Littleton, Co. on July 12. Molly donned a boho bridal look with a lace dress, tan wedges, and a messy chic ‘do accessorized with a flower crown. She carried a bouquet of  roses, hydrangeas, veronica, and seeded eucalyptus that she and family members made themselves. Her 8 ‘maids picked out their own dresses and wore various shades of nude, blush, champagne, and taupe. The groom and his men wore blue suits (the groom opted for a lighter than everyone else’s) and sported a mix of both neck and bow ties. Both Molly’s mom and dad walked her down the aisle, where she met her soon-to-be husband in the gazebo with a beautiful mountain backdrop. A friend officiated the ceremony as 120 guests watched. A reception followed, where a lot of the decor was handmade. “We are both artists so every detail was made or hand picked by us,” Molly said. “Ben is a jewelry artist who makes one of kind jewelry using natural gemstone crystals, so we had to incorporate crystals which we used in our place settings and invitations.” Guests were asked to drop well-wishes cards in a mailbox and were directed to their seats by escort cards held by clothespins. Instead of a traditional sit-down dinner, the couple had Bistro Colorado food truck cater the wedding. For dessert guests indulged on a naked cake and a dessert display of sprinkled donuts and macaroons. “I wanted to make sure that everyone there felt the love and joy that we were feeling,” Molly said. “It was the personal touches that mattered to us most. All our friends and family helped and I believe that is what made our day truly special.” See the full board here.

Natalie + Joey: Rustic Fall Vineyard Wedding in Virginia by Stephen Bobb Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Stephen Bobb Photography; Reception Venue: Bluemont Vineyard; Planner: Amy Thunell at Bluemont Vineyard; Gown: Watters purchased at Love Couture Bridal; Bridesmaid Dresses: Jenny Yoo purchased at Love Couture Bridal; Groom’s Attire: Vera Wang purchased at Men’s Wearhouse; Flowers: Kelley Truxel at Event Studio VA; Hair and Makeup: Le Mariee; Invitations: Draping: Elegant Momentz by Kathleen; DJ: Chris Laich; Cake: Jason Reaves of Market Salamander; Melissa Kelman; Ceremony Venue: St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church

Natalie and Joey were married at St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, followed by a reception at Bluemont Vineyard in Leesburg, Va on November 1. Natalie stunned in a strapless a-line gown with a bejeweled belt. She wore her hair in a low updo and carried a bouquet of white roses and hydrangeas, accented with silver brunia balls and dusty miller. Her ‘maids donned strapless gray chiffon dresses and carried simple baby’s breath bouquets. The groom and his men looked handsome in traditional black suits. The groomsmen wore striped neck ties, while Joey opted for solid black. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 friends and family in a traditional church ceremony. Afterwards, they moved to the Bluemont Vineyard for drinks, dinner, and dancing. “I wasn’t so focused on a theme or color, as much as creating an ambiance,” Natalie said. “I wanted the room to feel warm, inviting, and personal.” The stable where they held the reception had a hardwood backdrop, so Natalie went lighter on the decor elements. Guests sat at round tables in chivari chairs with string lights twinkling above them. Floral mason jars hung from the ceiling and floral centerpieces were crafted with the help of wooden sticks, while burlap tags acted as table numbers. “The only theme I wanted my wedding to be, was the theme of us as a couple.,” Natalie explained. “All the personal touches and family traditions truly made it unforgettable.” Guests received jars of jam as favors, which was homemade by the bride’s mother. The dessert display featured pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes, Baltimore berger cookies, and Italian waffle cookies. Yum! The couple also cut a simple white cake adorned with fall flowers. “You know you are a lucky bride when you can say, there is not one thing I would change about that day!” See the full board here.

Her ‘maids were outfitted in peach pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and greenery. The men sported khaki suits and pink neck ties, with the groom standing out from the pack in a striped tie. Allie took the venue into account while planning her wedding. “The venue was called Hodge Podge Lodge so we wanted to go with the hodge podge theme,” she said.  The couple exchanged vows outside under ivory draping and an elegant chandelier as guests looked on in wooden folding chairs marked with baby’s breath. The ceremony featured a unity candle ceremony, honoring the union of their two families. After they sealed the deal with a kiss, guests enjoyed lawn games like cornhole and croquet. Guests were asked to sign a patch for a quilt that would be put together in the future. The centerpieces at each of the round tables were discovered by the bride’s mother at antique shops. Family and friends were given pink personalized koozies and flavored popcorn bags as favors. “I think all our guests really enjoyed the wedding and some even described it as the most personal wedding they had been to,” Allie said. Guests indulged in white ruffle cakes as well as an LSU groom’s cake for dessert. Overall, Allie was very pleased with the way the wedding turned out. “I think our wedding was a good representation of my husband and me.” See the full board here.
