Miranda and Rodney were married at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, Calif. on September 29. The bride looked flawless in a strapless tulle ball gown accented with a blush sash. Miranda topped off the romantic look with a long curly ‘do and carried a bouquet of spray roses, a peachy pink cafe au lait dahlia, and fall foliage. Her best pals donned neutral tones in various fabrics and lengths. The groom and his men looked handsome in gray three-piece suits. The groom stood out from the crowd in a black bow tie, while his men opted for striped purple neck ties.  He also sported a ranunculus, fall wildflowers, and plum-toned boutonniere. “”We really let the dramatic venue and the flowers take center stage at the wedding – they made up the bulk of our décor,” Miranda described. Miranda and Rodney were married  in front of 135 friends and family members. The ceremony was “community-oriented,” as Miranda put it, and they asked their mothers and a friend to offer prayers and readings that were special to the couple. “I never thought I would have such fun during the ceremony,” Miranda said. “But it was definitely the highlight of the day for me.”  A family-style dinner followed, where guests sat in wooden folding chairs at tables featuring floral centerpieces in antique silver vases and purple accent linens. Following dinner, guests enjoyed a night of dancing and watched a slideshow that featured photos of the bride and groom as infants up to that day! They indulged in a three tier cake adorned with roses. As a favor, guests received a half-pound bag of coffee from a local roaster. Miranda’s favorite moment? “The most surreal and perfect moment was the raucous, sustained applause after we kissed.” See the full board here.

Courtney + Brendon: A DIY Downton Abbey-Inspired Fall North Carolina Barn Wedding By Vesic Photography

Courtney and Brendon were married at The Pavilions at the Angus Barn in Raleigh, N.C. on September 7. “I grew up riding horses so it was no surprise when I found myself drawn to the idea of a barn wedding,” Courtney said. “However, I really wanted to soften the aesthetic and distance myself from the more common ‘rustic’ wedding look.” The bride wore a lace off-the-shoulder a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a floor-length veil, while the groom wore a gray tweet suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short dresses with various necklines and carried bouquets of hydrangeas and baby’s breath. “My bouquet had a hidden secret thanks to my florist Marsha,” she said. “My dog Pubby had passed away a few months before the wedding unexpectedly. I quite sad about not having him around for my big day. She tucked his collar inside the stems of my bouquet and accented the wrap with the Helen Ficalora charms I wear to remember him.” The outdoor ceremony, overlooking the pond, took place at sunset per the request of Courtney’s father. “He wanted to walk me down the aisle right when the sun set,” Courtney said. “He even looked it up down to the minute, which I thought was really sweet.” After the vows were sealed with a kiss, it was time for dinner and dancing underneath the pavilion. Tables were decorated with vintage vases and vessels centerpieces, pillar candles atop candelabras, and wood slices. “There is this one scene from Downton Abbey that I have always loved – they were outdoors having a garden party in late spring/early summer,” she said. “That visual reimagined as more of an early fall soiree allowed my quirky and slightly more whimsical personal style to complement the venue perfectly.” In addition to a three-tiered cake, late-night snacks also served double-duty as favors, including push-pops, peanuts, sliders, and Coca Cola. Yum! See the full board here.

Natalie + Joey: Rustic Fall Vineyard Wedding in Virginia by Stephen Bobb Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Stephen Bobb Photography; Reception Venue: Bluemont Vineyard; Planner: Amy Thunell at Bluemont Vineyard; Gown: Watters purchased at Love Couture Bridal; Bridesmaid Dresses: Jenny Yoo purchased at Love Couture Bridal; Groom’s Attire: Vera Wang purchased at Men’s Wearhouse; Flowers: Kelley Truxel at Event Studio VA; Hair and Makeup: Le Mariee; Invitations: Draping: Elegant Momentz by Kathleen; DJ: Chris Laich; Cake: Jason Reaves of Market Salamander; Melissa Kelman; Ceremony Venue: St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church

Natalie and Joey were married at St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, followed by a reception at Bluemont Vineyard in Leesburg, Va on November 1. Natalie stunned in a strapless a-line gown with a bejeweled belt. She wore her hair in a low updo and carried a bouquet of white roses and hydrangeas, accented with silver brunia balls and dusty miller. Her ‘maids donned strapless gray chiffon dresses and carried simple baby’s breath bouquets. The groom and his men looked handsome in traditional black suits. The groomsmen wore striped neck ties, while Joey opted for solid black. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 friends and family in a traditional church ceremony. Afterwards, they moved to the Bluemont Vineyard for drinks, dinner, and dancing. “I wasn’t so focused on a theme or color, as much as creating an ambiance,” Natalie said. “I wanted the room to feel warm, inviting, and personal.” The stable where they held the reception had a hardwood backdrop, so Natalie went lighter on the decor elements. Guests sat at round tables in chivari chairs with string lights twinkling above them. Floral mason jars hung from the ceiling and floral centerpieces were crafted with the help of wooden sticks, while burlap tags acted as table numbers. “The only theme I wanted my wedding to be, was the theme of us as a couple.,” Natalie explained. “All the personal touches and family traditions truly made it unforgettable.” Guests received jars of jam as favors, which was homemade by the bride’s mother. The dessert display featured pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes, Baltimore berger cookies, and Italian waffle cookies. Yum! The couple also cut a simple white cake adorned with fall flowers. “You know you are a lucky bride when you can say, there is not one thing I would change about that day!” See the full board here.
