Brooke and Matthew were married in a traditional church ceremony at Sam Ramon Chapel followed by an outdoor reception at Rancho Tinaquaic in Santa Maria, Calif. last fall. The couple first met at a Halloween party. ”I was dressed as Lady Gaga, and Matt was a ‘member of a British band’ (aka he had no costume, except a scarf),” Brooke said. “But as we continued to see each other within a shared circle of friends, we found more and more reason to spend time together. Eventually, Matt asked me over to listen to an album by She & HIm — one of my favorite bands. It was love at first listen!” The bride wore a taffeta empire waisted wedding gown with a banded bodice, accessorized with a floral wreath in her curly short hair, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a red tie. ”Matt’s grandfather always told him that you should make a statement with your socks,” she said. “Following his advice, Matt owns a variety of wild prints, but his signature sock choice has always been red. . . We weren’t set on red as a color scheme — we just wanted things to be colorful!” Fun fact: The ceremony took place inside the same chapel Brooke’s great great great grandfather built for his wife in 1875. ”Growing up, I always knew I would be married there. It sits about a mile away from my family’s ranch, and the ranch house we had our reception at,” Brooke said. Tables were decorated with candle centerpieces atop pieces of wood, the cake was lemon flavored with fresh raspberries, and the newlyweds performed their first dance to ” I Won’t Dance” by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald.

Hope and Ben first met at a church youth group meeting. “I knew who she was for years, but always thought she was out of my league.” Ben said. And were married at an outdoor chapel in the middle of the woods. Hope walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” “I kept my eyes on Ben the entire time but could feel the warmth from everyone’s hearts as they watched this intimate moment,” she said. “I lost it at the end. Within two feet of Ben, I was so happy I actually cried.” Bridesmaids stood next to Hope wearing lavender chiffon dresses paired with turquoise beaded necklaces. You couldn’t help but notice her dramatic cathedral veil! Following the ceremony, guests snacked on old fashioned popcorn with various seasonings such as nacho cheese and ranch, family photos were on display at reception tables, and fresh fruit was served alongside their cake.

Ever since she was a little girl, Genny dreamed of getting married at a chapel in Seaside, Fla. All she needed was Logan to come knocking on her door. And he did! The day before their wedding, it was warm and sunny, but on the morning of, a cold front came through with 20 mph winds, making it near 40 degrees and cloudy. To keep warm, Genny wore her grandmother’s fur coat, bridesmaids wore Pashmina shawls, and guests cozied up with blankets in the reception lounge, which featured large white sofas, mirrored side tables, decorative pillows, and dropped-drum shade lighting, sipped on key lime pie martinis, the signature cocktail, and ate macarons, which doubled as favors. See the full board here.
