She carried a classic white bouquet of hydrangea and ranunculus, which had a photo of the bride’s late grandmother attached to it. Her ‘maids looked fabulous in long-sleeve champagne sequined dresses. The groom looked dapper in a dark blue pin-stripe three-piece suit, while his men donned dark suits and champagne neck ties. The pair exchanged vows at Aria, an industrial event space downtown. “The amazing beaded gold lace on my gown completely inspired the vintage glam feeling I knew would blend flawlessly with Aria’s raw space,” Allison said. They were married under three gorgeous crystal chandeliers and in front of stunning white drapery. A reception followed at the same location. There was a family photo display and vintage style furnishings throughout the space. “I like things clean, white, and fluffy. I knew I wanted a neutral palette,” Allison said. Guests sat at round tables in brown chiavari chairs with glass vase centerpieces filled with carnations, hydrangeas, Queen Anne’s lace, and gold accents. The reception also featured personalized gold foil napkins “It was amazing to see how all our personalized details came together,” Allison said. The menu reflected the places the couple has lived together, which was created by the maid of honor. The dessert display consisted of homemade cupcakes, pie pops, and an espresso cart. ” We loved sneaking off to have our little moments in the gorgeous structure,” Allison said the wedding day.

Diana and Ryan were married at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church followed by a reception at Armory in La Mars, Iowa on August 30. The bride wore her mother’s dress which was an A-line gown with lace detailing. an overlay, and a jeweled belt. She donned her hair in a classic bun and carried a bright bouquet of yellow roses, mums, goldenrod, and hydgrangeas. Her bridesmaids wore dresses of every color and length. “”I decided to choose a color scheme and allow my bridesmaids to find something that they loved and would hopefully wear again,” Diana said of their attire. The groom and his men were clad in white button down shirts, gray dress pants, and suspenders. A traditional church ceremony was held in front of 450 guests. “Because we are from a small town, we are blessed to be surrounded by many family and friends,” Diana said. A reception followed in a big open barn, which meant it was up to Diana and Ryan to fill the space with furniture and decor. “It required quite a bit of TLC and moving in of a lot of large pieces such as picnic tables, a bar, large spools for standing tables, pallets, old doors, and pieces of furniture,” Diana said of the process. Luckily their extended family pitched in with set up and tear down. The space featured a vintage desk doubling as a welcome table- which held an old wooden box for cards, and a guest book featuring photos of the newlyweds. Guests sat at wooden benches with lace linens and wood slices and candles as the centerpieces. “We love simple yet elegant as well as the country chic and rustic elegance,” Diana said. A table was set up featuring old family wedding photos in vintage frames. Aside from the brick-oven pizza that was served, there was also a popcorn bar, a dessert bar, and a fully-stocked drink bar where homemade wine was served.  Family and friends were able to take home personalized koozies and popcorn bags. Diana’s best advice? “Don’t be a hero and try to do it on your own. People want to help.” See the full board here.

Some of the tables were lined with candlelit hurricanes, glass goblets, gold mercury votives, pears, and greenery. Other tables featured tall glass cylinders as centerpieces with branches and pears inside. “I tried to have our wedding be a representation of Jordan and I as a couple, so we decided to go with classic and timeless,” Laura said of her inspiration.

Janke + Mitchell: Blue and White Chic Australian Spring Wedding by iZO Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Untitled-3Photos: iZO Photography; Reception Venue & Catering: Moore and Moore Cafe; Groom’s Attire: Ralph Lauren and ASOSCake: Sherbet Bake Shop; Gown: Custom Designed; Flowers: Family Friend, Noelene Fisher; Bridesmaid Dresses: ASOS; Ceremony Venue: Fremantle Town Hall; Officiant: Ps. Ken Lee; Reception Music: Ben Lee

Janke and Mitchell were married at Fremantle Town Hall, followed by a reception at Moore and Moore Cafe in Fremantle, Western Australia on April 19. Janke looked stunning in a custom cap sleeve gown with a scoop neck and lace peplum waist. She donned her hair in a fishtail braid and carried a beautiful bouquet of proteas, roses, and seeded eucalyptus. “I wanted to use proteas as a focus as I am originally from South Africa,” Janke explained. Her ‘maids opted for short sleeve mint and navy beaded dresses and carried bouquets of king proteas and baby’s breath tied together with a long navy ribbon. The groom and his men looked handsome in fitted navy suits and skinny black neck ties. The ceremony took place at the Fremantle Town Hall, which features a stage with bronzed curtains. “We remembered the Fremantle Town Hall – a beautiful old venue in the center of town…making a pretty amazing backdrop for a wedding ceremony,” Janke said of the space. As the pair recessed down the aisle after the knot was tied, friends and family tossed eucalyptus leaves at the newlyweds. A cocktail-style reception followed, which allowed guests to mingle throughout the evening, versus sitting down at a single table for the entire reception. As an alternative to the traditional guest book, Janke and Mitchell asked friends and family to take a photo of themselves and write their name! They enjoyed signature cocktails, Red Bull Vodkas and Pimm’s, as well as a mixture of local and South African cuisine. Various cakes were arranged on a dessert table around the wedding cake for guests to indulge in. Janke suggests not stressing out about the little details. “You don’t need it all, we went without a lot of the trimmings and no on even noticed,” she said. See the full board here.
