Christina and Anthony were married at Portland Company Complex in Portland, Maine on June 2. The bride looked lovely in a lace gown featuring an illusion lace neckline and short sleeves. She wore her hair in a low chignon and carried a bright summer bouquet of peonies, poppies, garden roses, and greenery. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit complete with a light neck tie and a pocket watch. The couple tied the knot seaside under a hand-knit chuppah. After they exchanged vows, guests walked about five minutes to the reception space which was an industrial style space featuring wooden floors, a brick wall, and exposed beams. “Guests were then invited to get all aboard the train for a fun little ride around while they all mingled and drank old fashioneds and lemonades before being dropped back at the reception,” said Jessica of A Brit & A Blonde. Friends and family members also enjoyed local Maine and New England beers during cocktail hour. Guests sat at long banquet tables complete with chevron table runners in crossback chairs. The tables were lined with glass bud vases with snapdragon and tulip arrangements in them.  “Anthony & Christina are true blue wedding DIYers,” Jessica said. “Almost every single detail and décor item was done by them or one of their family or friends.” In lieu of tangible wedding favors, a donation was made to Uncommon Schools. The menu included spring radish slivers, whole grilled arctic char stuffed with fennel and herbs, and quinoa salad with pickled rhubarb. For dessert, guests enjoy a single-tier buttercream cake adorned with a flower, as well as a tower of Whoopie pies! 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!
