Mr. DJ

Kristen and Kevin were married at The Carriage House in Mason, Ohio on March 22. The bride looked radiant in a strapless a-line gown and wore her hair in a curly partial updo. She carried a springtime bouquet of pink and white peonies. Her veil had special meaning because she used lace from her mother’s wedding dress to put it together. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit, which he pinned a lucky penny onto. “I wanted an intimate wedding that included as much meaningful and personal items and touches as possible,” Kristen explained. “I hoped to combine my taste for an elegant and understated wedding with a rustic touch as a way of mending our two styles.” After exchanging both traditional and personal vows in front of 100 guests, the newlyweds recessed down the aisle carrying their son as guests threw rose petals. For the reception, Kristen and Kevin offered a unique menu to their guests. “We chose to have a brunch reception which meant eggs benedict, a waffle bar, sausage and bacon and of course Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s!” Kristen said. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and burlap and lace table runners in wooden folding chairs. Tables featured a mason jar centerpiece with either a candle or pink flowers on top of a wood slice. Guests indulged in a three-tiered cake adorned with roses and watched as Kristen and Kevin played the “shoe-lywed game.” Kristen advises couples to think about what matters most to them when creating their budget. “Define the most important aspects for you and then make it happen. Whether it’s the flowers, the venue or the photographer, pick a few key things and budget from there,” Kristen said. What fabulous advice! 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!

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.

Janet + Stanley: An Elegant Blue and Green Summer California Estate Wedding By Jasmine Lee Photography

Janet and Stanley were married at Palmdale Estates in Fremont, Calif. on September 14. Even though the couple currently lives in New York City, they decided to plan a long-distance wedding where they grew up together. I’m probably some of the lucky few who meet their spouse in grade school,” Janet said. “The first time I met my husband, we were in 7th grade. During 8th grade, we certainly had a ‘thing’ going on between us, but it wasn’t until we were juniors in high school did we begin dating seriously. From that moment on, we have grown up together and at times apart, but we always seem to find our way back to one another.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a birdcage veil with feathers, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a cobalt blue tie to match the bridesmaids long chiffon dresses. Almost 250 guests witnessed the ceremony, and following dinner was served in an expansive open-aired tent surrounding the gardens. “I aimed to have elegance incorporated into my wedding design through lining my tent with chiffon, chiavari chairs and up-lighting,” she said. “Overall, I hoped to achieve the modern chic feel.” Reception tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces of hydrangeas, roses, and delphinium, and yes, green apples and branches, gold charger plates, and ribbon-tied napkins. Plus, the classic white cake was 3-dimensional in design — how cool! See the full board here.
