Anna and Mike were married at Fall River Ranch in Ashton, Idaho last summer. The couple first met 10 years ago, when she frequented the snow-cone shack where he worked. “Finally, one day I had the guts to write my number down on a napkin and give it to him,” Anna said.  After deciding on a destination wedding four hours away from their home in Salt Lake City, they officially had all 40 acres of the property to themselves for the weekend, including no cell service. “Mike and I decided to have a getaway wedding because we only wanted the people there who wanted to be,” she said. The bride wore a v-neck lace wedding gown with a tiered ruffled skirt, accessorized with a floral wreath in her updo, while the groom wore tan suit, accessorized with a blue tie. ”It was very important for me to buy my bridesmaids dresses for them,” Anna said. “So, I shopped with each of them to find the perfect style. No one’s body is the same, and I wanted them to feel the best they could and comfortable.” Bouquets were freshly-picked wildflowers wrapped in lace around the stems. Guests were greeted with a welcome sign that encouraged them to hashtag “mike+anna” on their Instagram pictures. ”When it came to the wedding decor, we did it all ourselves,” she said. “We used all of my Depression-era glassware, my grandparents collected vintage medicine bottles for me and after many trips to vintage markers and estate sales I had a large selection of vintage items to use as vessels.” Following the evening nuptials, the newlyweds performed their first dance to ”Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts, but due to a sound system snafu, they ended up dancing to “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran, dinner was served on vintage china, and in lieu of a traditional tiered cake, a red velvet bundt cake was served.

Melissa and Chris were married at Grace Bay Resort in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands last fall. The couple first met through Chris’ work friend, who just so happened to also be married to Melissa’s best friend. ”When I first saw her walk through the door she was all I could see with her long blonde hair and big bright smile,” Chris said. “From the moment we were introduced it was impossible to speak or look to anyone else.” The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with floral appliques, accessorized with her hair in a side braid and topped with a floral wreath, while the groom kept it casual with a white button-up shirt, khaki pants, and flip flops. Bridesmaids wore navy blue satin dresses and carried bouquets of orchids and berries. ”We both wanted to get married somewhere picturesque and relaxing on a beach,” he said. “We both like to travel and heard great things about Turks and Caicos . . . the location and serene vibe of Grace Bay Club’s lounge area drew us in immediately.” They wed underneath a dramatic branch arch draped with fabric in front of 46 guests. The skies were overcast, but it was a blessing in disguise. ”It provided well needed and much appreciated breeze along with a soft light and backdrop for pictures,” Chris said. Following, guests were escorted to a tent where the reception was held poolside. Not once, but twice did everyone jump into it fully clothed by the end of the night! See the full board here.

Marta and Jaume were married at Can Riera de la Pineda in Arbucies, Spain on June 15. “The day was perfect; a sunny, summer day,” Marta said. ”We were inspired  by the campsite, and it’s vintage decor.” The bride wore a flowing v-neck wedding gown with lace detailing from Spanish designer Jordi Anguera, accessorized with a sideswept bun with a silver chain headband. Her bouquet featured white and purple blooms set amongst a surplus of greenery. The groom donned a classic black suit along with a striped tie. Following the ceremony, 150 guests enjoyed an outdoor lounge area next to a pavilion. They were served fresh vegetables, bread, and other passed hors d’oeuvres before they were escorted to their seats at round tables with fragrant herb centerpieces. When night fell, the venue was lit up with candles and trees wrapped in cafe lights to create a fairytale feel. The newlywed’s best advice? “They have to enjoy every moment,” Marta said.
