Janet and Stanley were married at Palmdale Estates in Fremont, Calif. on September 14. Even though the couple currently lives in New York City, they decided to plan a long-distance wedding where they grew up together. I’m probably some of the lucky few who meet their spouse in grade school,” Janet said. “The first time I met my husband, we were in 7th grade. During 8th grade, we certainly had a ‘thing’ going on between us, but it wasn’t until we were juniors in high school did we begin dating seriously. From that moment on, we have grown up together and at times apart, but we always seem to find our way back to one another.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a birdcage veil with feathers, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a cobalt blue tie to match the bridesmaids long chiffon dresses. Almost 250 guests witnessed the ceremony, and following dinner was served in an expansive open-aired tent surrounding the gardens. ”I aimed to have elegance incorporated into my wedding design through lining my tent with chiffon, chiavari chairs and up-lighting,” she said. “Overall, I hoped to achieve the modern chic feel.” Reception tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces of hydrangeas, roses, and delphinium, and yes, green apples and branches, gold charger plates, and ribbon-tied napkins. Plus, the classic white cake was 3-dimensional in design — how cool! See the full board here.

Kaylie and Noah met in high school and dated throughout college. During her senior year at Virginia Tech, he proposed on Valentine’s Day with a jar of homemade fortune cookies. Inside each one was a message that said, “Will you marry me?” They chose the Irvine Estate in Lexington, Va. for their vintage-themed blush and sage green summer wedding. Invitations were sent on handkerchiefs explaining to “please bring this in case you cry and we’ll wave them to bid a fond goodbye!” Bridesmaids wore one-shoulder chiffon dresses and carried baby’s breath bouquets, whereas, groomsmen wore pale blue suits and matching bow ties. Inside Noah’s suit jacket was a fabric-shaped heart with the date of their wedding stitched on — June 15, 2013. They loved the amazing view of the Appalachian Mountains in the distance during their ceremony. Guests even surprised them with mustache props as they exited! Cocktail hour followed with hors d’oeuvres, including mini beef wellingtons and spinach and cheese dip with French bread. But no one could wait to taste the ombre pink lemon wedding cake filled with raspberry buttercream at the reception. See the full board here.
