Lucie and Leigh were married at Hyde Barn in Gloucestershire, England on April 12. The bride looked stunning in her own creation, a strapless dropped waist gown featuring hand-beaded Swarovski crystals on the front. Her hair reflected the 1920s theme with soft curls and a headpiece made from the same lace as her dress. Her ‘maids donned blush and champagne dresses that the bride made for each of them, and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. The groom opted for a gray three-piece suit with a silk tartan bow tie and waistcoat panel, a nod to his Scottish heritage. “I have always loved the fashion of the prohibition era, and we wanted our day to have a fun laid-back feel,” Lucie explained. A vintage-style birdcage sat on the welcome table, where guests could drop their gifts and well wishes. The pair exchanged personal vows in front of just 80 guests. “We wrote our own promises to each other as it was such a special moment for us,” Lucie said. “We wanted to use our own words to express what it meant to us.” A reception followed, which boasted prohibition-inspired signs listing drink specials and fun sayings, as well as lit-up marquee letters. Guests even dressed up in their best Gatsby attire! Friends and family received jars of homemade jam as favors, featuring tags that read “Time to drink champagne and dance on the table.” Their first dance together was an Argentine tango. For dessert guests enjoyed a three tier sponge cake, as well as a variety of candy. Lucie’s best advice to couples who are planning their wedding? “Weddings should have a real injection of the couple’s personalities into them, I think that’s what makes every wedding day unique and special.” See the full board here.

Amy and Tim were married at Arbor Day Farm in Nebraska City, Neb. on June 22. The bride looked stunning in a chiffon v-neck gown with pearl accessories and a feather hair fastener in her updo. She carried a unique bouquet of colorful brooches. Her ‘maids donned mix-and-match short dresses in various shades of blush and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. The groom and his men wore gray dress pants, and button down shirts. The groom differentiated himself by opting for black, and his men amped up their look with suspenders, purple ties, and feather boutonnieres. A homemade sign made out of an old frame and some rope denoted the entrance to the ceremony. Guests sat in white folding chairs outside the white-washed barn while Amy and Tim exchanged vows under a wooden arch. A reception followed inside the barn, which was decorated with twinkling string lights. White linens and burlap runners covered the tables, and each featured various vintage prop centerpieces. Guests ate and danced the night away, celebrating the joyous union of Amy and Tim! See the full board here.

Neely and Karl were married at a private barn in Silverhill, Ala. on April 26. “I wanted the theme of my wedding to be romantic, in every sense of the word!” Neely said. “I wanted a very intimate, vintage, traditional feel to the whole night!” The bride stunned in a fitted strapless lace gown and wore her chestnut brown hair in an intricate updo. She opted for minimal jewelry and carried a bouquet of light pink and white garden roses. Her ‘maids matched the romantic vibe perfectly in flowing floor-length blush-colored gowns with various necklines. The groom and his men donned gray three-piece suits, the groom differentiated himself by opting for a light blue vest and necktie, while the groomsmen went with white. ” The whole wedding, ceremony and reception were outdoors,” Neely said. “The ceremony itself was relaxed and traditional, performed by my granddaddy.” Guests sat in folding chairs, beside a lake, and watched Neely and Karl tie the knot. Afterwards, they walked up the hill to the reception, which was in a private barn. Guests were encouraged to sign a wooden table along with a guestbook. The couple added many personal touches such as a family photo display and a cute dessert display. Rustic touches such as whimsical handwritten signs, mason jar flower holders, and bales of hay decorated the barn. They even had outdoor string lights, so guests could celebrate long after the sun set. “The whole day I would describe as relaxed, romantic, full of sentiment and love,” Neely said. “I wanted to spend the morning with my favorite people, and that’s exactly what I did.” The couple cut a three-tiered cake adorned with flowers and were sent off into married life with sparklers. Despite the gorgeous details and romantic aesthetic, it wasn’t the most important part for Neely.  “At the end of the day, if you are married to the love of your life, then it was a perfect day!” Neely said.

Danielle + Brad: A Rustic Lavender And Sage Green Spring California Ranch Wedding By William Innes Photography

Danielle and Brad were married at Santa Margarita Ranch in Santa Margarita, Calif. on May 31. “We wanted the wedding to be fun and unpretentious,” Danielle said. “We are both fairly casual and low maintenance people, so we didn’t want to go crazy over details, or kill each other.” The bride wore a strapless lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a lavender sash, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore short sage green chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of hydrangeas, sweet peas, and seeded eucalyptus. “Whenever we go to weddings, we always sit through a long ceremony in the sun and think, ‘I wish I had a cocktail for this; I wish this was shorter.’ When we approached the wedding planning process, we decided to serve drinks beforehand and make the it short and sweet. We wanted to enjoy the time with our family and friends,” she said. Guests were also greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Today, two families become one. We ask that you please pick a seat and not a side.” Fun fact: Brad’s dad officiated the ceremony! Escort cards were attached to mason jars — a personalized favor combo. “Since we were having the reception in a barn, we wanted to use rustic elements without making it feel like a hoedown,” Danielle said. Tables were decorated with wooden box centerpieces atop burlap runners, chalkboard numbers, charger plates, and menu cards at each place setting. “I love horses and grew up riding horses competitively,” she said. “At the end of my sister’s speech, she brought out a mini horse named Dazzle that did tricks as our wedding gift. He was so cute, and it was such a surprise.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Brad Paisley’s “Then,” and cut into a three-tiered buttercream frosted cake afterwards (without smashing it in each other’s faces).
