Hillary and Jake were married at Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla, Calif. on August 4. ”The most important thing to us was that our wedding reflected our personalities and our love for each other,” Hillary said. “We wanted a beautiful setting and to keep the decorations simple and focus on what was really important – celebrating our marriage with the most important people in the world to us.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with an open back, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a bow tie and pocket square. Bridesmaids wore long Tiffany blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of pink astilbes. ”The day was beautiful and perfect temperature outside,” she said. “The breeze was fantastic from the ocean, and we could hear the waves crash against the shore as we said our vows.” The couple, along with their mothers, performed a sand ceremony to symbolize two families becoming one. Mothers too! Cocktail hour began with signature drinks – “Blushing Bride” and “Golden Groom” – and guests taking pictures and hashtagging them with #jakeandhillary2013 on Instagram. Tables were decorated with floating candle centerpieces, family photos, and of course, assorted seashells on place cards. The newlyweds’ best advice? ”Enjoy your day! The day goes so fast so my advice is to slow down, take a great look around, and give your new spouse and extra kiss. There will never be another day quite like your wedding day so enjoy it as much as you can.” she said. See the full board here.

Erica and Adam were married at Secret Island Beach at Kualoa Ranch in Kaneohe, Hawaii on July 6. We wanted our loved ones to see the Hawaii we call home, and to be able to celebrate our wedding as a holiday,” Erica said. “Our approach was to host a party–we wanted fun, relaxing, and memorable.” The bride wore a sweetheart tulle a-line wedding gown with floral appliques, while the groom wore a tan, accessorized with flip flops. Bridesmaids wore short coral to tangerine chiffon dresses in various necklines and carried bouquets of roses, orchids, pincushion proteas, and seed eucalyptuses. ”We also wanted to see everyone as lit up with love and happiness as we are, so our theme was ‘lit up,’” she said. The couple wed before 75 guests along an ancient fishpond. ”Everything was just perfect, perfect weather,” Erica said. “Rain was predicted and it did rain–right at 10pm when we needed to leave the venue!” Tables were decorated with white linens, centerpieces atop wooden slabs, wine bottle numbers, and an “I Spy” game. In lieu of a traditional cake, a dessert display was filled with lots and lots of candies. Notice the custom containers? The newlyweds performed their first dance underneath string lights to “Be Here Now” by Mason Jennings, and at the end of the night posed beside the word “love” written with sparklers. How cool!

Tiffany and Michael were married at Barrier Island Sanctuary followed by reception at Ryckman Park in Melbourne, Fla. on November 16. ”I always wanted my wedding in a garden, and Mike always wanted to get married on the beach,” Tiffany said. “We compromised and had both!” The bride wore a v-neck lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a braided updo, while the groom wore a tan three-piece suit, accessorized with a white tie. Bridesmaids wore mint chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, hydrangeas, and berries. “Seafoam is my favorite color, so that was an easy choice,” she said. Tiffany walked down the aisle arm-in-arm with her dad as a rock and reggae band played. How cool is that? Following the nuptials, all 95 guests were seated underneath a tent. Tables were decorated with white linens, coral napkins, and gold charger plates. Notice the “Mint to Be” tins? Those served as fresh favors. The newlyweds performed their first dance to Lauryn Hill’s cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” but “our guests didn’t want to leave the dance floor at the end of the night!” Tiffany said. Good thing they didn’t miss out of the wish lantern send-off! See the full board here.

Melissa and Chris were married at Grace Bay Resort in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands last fall. The couple first met through Chris’ work friend, who just so happened to also be married to Melissa’s best friend. ”When I first saw her walk through the door she was all I could see with her long blonde hair and big bright smile,” Chris said. “From the moment we were introduced it was impossible to speak or look to anyone else.” The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with floral appliques, accessorized with her hair in a side braid and topped with a floral wreath, while the groom kept it casual with a white button-up shirt, khaki pants, and flip flops. Bridesmaids wore navy blue satin dresses and carried bouquets of orchids and berries. ”We both wanted to get married somewhere picturesque and relaxing on a beach,” he said. “We both like to travel and heard great things about Turks and Caicos . . . the location and serene vibe of Grace Bay Club’s lounge area drew us in immediately.” They wed underneath a dramatic branch arch draped with fabric in front of 46 guests. The skies were overcast, but it was a blessing in disguise. ”It provided well needed and much appreciated breeze along with a soft light and backdrop for pictures,” Chris said. Following, guests were escorted to a tent where the reception was held poolside. Not once, but twice did everyone jump into it fully clothed by the end of the night! See the full board here.
