Leah and Eric were married in a traditional church ceremony at First Presbyterian followed by a reception at The Venue at 400 North Ervay in Dallas, Texas on March 22. The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown with all-over embroidered beading, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black tuxedo, accessorized with a solid bow tie and pocket square. Bridesmaids wore a combination of short and long green chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, hydrangeas, and anemones. What could be cooler than cocktail hour on a rooftop deck in the heart of downtown? Guests enjoyed getting cozy on contemporary couches, accented with yellow and gray patterned decorative pillows and lit with geometric chandeliers. Since they both are wine distributors, it only made sense to subtly wove that theme into the decor. For example, escort cards were displayed on initialed corks, centerpieces were filled in wooden crates, and numbers were printed on bottles. In lieu of a guest book, well wishes were written on a selection of reds and whites for the newlyweds to open on future anniversaries. A three-tiered textured fondant and buttercream-frosted cake was served after dinner and in between dancing, but there was also a surprise! A mini chocolate cake for Eric. See the full board here.

Samantha and Austin were married in a traditional church ceremony at First Baptist Church of Pinson followed by a reception inside the banquet hall. Fun fact: She is a former contestant on America’s Next Top Model. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a frothy, full tulle skirt, accessorized with a braided updo and cameo necklace, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. Guests were greeted with programs that featured a timeline of the couple’s relationship. “December 21, 2012 to the ancient Mayan calendar may have been the end of the world, but it was actually the beginning of theirs . . . Austin got down on one knee to ask Samantha to marry him. In the same Marine Biology classroom where it all began.” Just as the ceremony began, “I turned the corner with my dad walking me down the aisle in the church I grew up in and finally saw Austin for the first time,” Samantha said. The processional was just as exciting as the recessional — filled with ribbon wands! The reception kicked off with signature drinks such as Coca-Cola and sparking pink lemonade, tables were decorated with family heirloom vases and vessels atop mirrors, and paper pinwheels hung from the ceiling. In addition to the three-tiered cake, a dessert display was overflowing with Italian cannolis, chocolate-covered strawberries, and pies. See the full board here.

Megan + Kevin: A Bright East Meets West-Themed Spring New York Backyard Wedding By Joshua Zuckerman Photography

Megan and Kevin were married in a traditional church ceremony at Remsenburg Community Presbyterian followed by an outdoor tented reception in the groom’s parent’s backyard in Westhampton, N.Y. last spring. The wedding theme was “East Meets Midwest” – a combination of the bride’s Midwestern roots and the groom’s East Coast upbringing. “All my family was flying in from the Midwest, so we really wanted to show them a beachy weekend, while at the same time, keeping in touch with my Kansas City roots with the BBQ theme,” Megan said. The bride wore a satin trumpet wedding gown with an illusion lace straps, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a blue tie. Bridesmaids wore “dusty shale” chiffon dresses and carried wildflower bouquets. Megan’s best advice following the ceremony? ”Take a minute to enjoy the evening alone with your new husband,” she said. “Even if it’s just for a moment, have some couple time before you head back to the dance floor together.” Guests were escorted to their seats at farm tables with pig figurines. ”I wanted the florals to be a little ‘messy’ and not too perfectly organized,” Megan said. Plus, unexpected details like bowls of strawberries too! ”The rehearsal dinner was a lobster bake, then the wedding was a pulled-pork, ribs, BBQ-fest, so there was a little something for everyone,” she said. In lieu of a cake, a variety of pies were served. See the full board here.

Amy + Dan: A DIY Sentimental Spring Canadian Backyard Wedding By Marie Skerl Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Amy and Dan were married in a traditional church ceremony at Cedar Park followed by an outdoor reception at Cammidge House. ”I am passionate about taking care of the environment, so I wanted our wedding to be green and low impact,” Amy said. “All of our flowers and most of our decor were foraged . . . all our table cloths and napkins were bought second hand, and then given back to the stores we bought them from.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her grandmother’s necklace, while the groom wore a dark gray vest and pants (no jacket), accessorized with a black tie. ”We wanted the wedding to capture our individual personalities,” she said. “On one side of the stage we objects and furniture that represented Dan (grandpa’s old rocking chair, guitar, film projector) and on the other side were things that represented me (watering can, painting, grandparent’s old trunk). At the end of the ceremony, our wedding party moved all the pieces to form one ‘living room’ set.” How unique is that? Guests were greeted at the reception with a welcome table that featured wild flower seed packets and jars of homemade honey. The tent was decorated with lots and lots of hearts hanging from the ceiling, table numbers with quotes and sayings, and a make-your-own drink station. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Make sure all the details for the wedding are written down so the bride and groom, wedding planner, parents, and helpers are all on the same page,” Amy said.
