After dinner guests enjoyed a simple blue cake with a swirly white pattern and adorned with a sugar flower. “I made sure to cut off the planning 2 days before the wedding,” Kristen said. “I poured myself a glass of wine on Thursday evening and said I wasn’t going to stress about anything else.” See the full board here.

Jennifer and Jesse were married at Bhy Kracke Park followed by a reception at The Ruins in Seattle, Wash. on August 10. The bride turned heads in an all-lace fitted gown with a keyhole back and her hair in an intricate updo accessorized with flowers. She carried a bouquet filled with dahlias and calla lilies. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit with a periwinkle tie. The ceremony for the 140 guests took place outside at a park with sweeping views of the city. “We had a huge thunder and lighting storm with poring rain the night before,” Jesse said. “With an outdoor wedding and not the best backup plan we were a little worried. Then the sun came out for the ceremony and the weather ended up being perfect.” Lucky them! After the ceremony, Jennifer and Jesse took a vintage Rolls Royce to their reception, which was at a classic indoor venue that featured beautiful murals on the walls and ceiling, as well as gorgeous chandeliers. Elegant escort cards guided guests to round tables with stunning glassware. “We are blessed to have many talented individual among our friends and family and many of them helped us out with the wedding,” Jesse noted. ” It was important for us to have this day not be only about us but also about all of the people we care about.” Guests indulged a three-tiered naked cake adorned with flowers and fruit and celebrated the big day in style on the dance floor! Jesse’s best advice? “Don’t worry about the little things, the day will be great either way.” See the full board here.

Maria and Darren were married at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel in Riverside, Calif. on June 14. “We met nineteen years ago when we were 12 years old,” Maria said. “I was the one who chased him! I remember telling my older brother’s best friend that I loved Darren and was going to marry him.” The bride flattered in a fitted strapless lace gown and cathedral-length veil. Her wavy locks were clipped back with a sparkly hair pin and she opted for a simple necklace and earrings. She carried a classic bouquet of white peonies. The groom wore a black suit with a patterned neck tie and a white peony boutonniere. Her ‘maids wore bright red chiffon floor-length strapless dresses and carried bouquets of white peonies and roses. “Since my bridesmaids dresses were so bright and fun, I didn’t want to over do it with accent colors,” Maria said. The groomsmen were outfitted in gray three-piece suits, patterned ties, and calla lily boutonnieres. A reception followed the traditional church ceremony in the music room at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. Guests sat in chiavari chairs at round tables with tall floral centerpieces. “I kept the linens and flowers very simple; all ivory,” Maria said. ” I tied in the theme of my lace wedding dress to the cake, votive candles and all the bouquets were wrapped in lace.” After dinner, guests indulged in an all-white tiered cake topped with white peonies, of course! “I really wanted to keep it traditional yet contemporary at the same time,” Maria said. She definitely succeeded, and even managed to gather her all of her guests together to take a group photo! See the full board here.

 Mallory and TJ were married at Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, N.J. on May 25. “After that first date, we were both smitten,” Mallory said. “We saw each other a few other times that month and things quickly progressed into a wonderful relationship. We had been dating for a year and a half when he popped the question!” The bride wore a strapless satin mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a white vest and tie. Bridesmaids wore short navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and hydrangeas. “I just wanted something simple, elegant and classic,” she said. “My approach was to stay on a budget and keep things simple while adding fun creative touches.” Guests were greeted at the ceremony with a sign that said, “Today, two families become one. We ask that you please pick a seat not a side.” “Our wedding day was the most perfect day,” she said. “The sun was shining, the sky was beautiful blue, and the breeze was just enough to keep comfortable under the sunny skies and considering we were married outdoors – it was perfect.” Can’t you tell that it was full of laughter — and some tears? Following the nuptials, cocktail hour began, then the reception inside the ballroom. There was even a cigar bar! The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Close Your Eyes” by Michael Buble, and cut their four-tiered monogrammed cake in between toasts. “I would not have changed a thing!” Mallory said.
