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.

Katelyn and Matthew were married at Events at East 96 in Lascassas, Tenn. Katelyn stunned in a ruched satin A-line gown and her hair softly curled in a partial updo. Her ‘maids looked gorgeous in short coral strapless chiffon dresses, while the groom and his men donned dark tuxedos with mint and dark-colored satin neck ties. Before walking her down the aisle, Katelyn’s father gave her a napkin with a sentimental note embroidered on it. Guests sat on colorful quilts atop bales of hay as the couple exchanged vows. A reception followed in the wood-paneled barn, where tables were covered in white linens and burlap and lace table runners. The centers of the table featured magnolia leaves arranged in a mason jar atop a wood slice. A wagon wheel hung from the ceiling decorated with greenery and mason jar candles, as well as string lights, to illuminate the reception space. Guests enjoyed dinner and dancing, as well as a single-tier cake decorated with lace, burlap rosettes, and a mirrored topper. There was also a dessert table featuring fudge and pecan pie, as well as cupcakes. See the full board here.

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.
