Tim and Jonah were married at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula, Calif. on November 15. The grooms looked dapper in fitted gray suits and purple striped ties. They also sported boutonnieres made of ruby orchids, white calla lilies, and seeded eucalyptus. The groomsmen opted for light gray suits and black ties, while the bridesmaids donned floor-length, one-shoulder violet dresses. The pair tied the knot in front of nearly 100 guests on the vineyard property. “”We wanted a very formal, elegant, classy wedding,” Tim said. “I had a vision for our perfect day and lucky for me, Jonah agreed.We wanted touches of Paris, since that holds a special place in our hearts, but we didn’t want it to be a Paris theme wedding.” Guests sat in white folding chairs beside green and purple pomander aisle markers. The grooms’ two chihuahuas participated in the ceremony as well, each adorned in a floral wreath. There was “a slight fall breeze as the sun began to set during the wedding ceremony,” Tim said. A cocktail hour followed the ceremony on a different level of the winery which offered stunning views of the venue. Guests were also asked to sign their names on the leaves of a print tree, in lieu of a traditional guest book. The reception took place inside a room lined with wine barrels and string lights. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and matching folding chairs. The tables were dressed with silver plates and plum-colored napkins. The centerpieces consisted of branches, hydrangeas, orchids, mums, and candles. Friends and family were given a photo scavenger hunt to keep them entertained. The dance floor was illuminated with a gobo light that displayed their initials and wedding date. Guests indulged in a three-tier square cake adorned with purple flowers and a silver monogrammed cake topper. Tim advises couples to stay true to themselves while planning. “During the planning of the wedding you will constantly have others giving you advice and recommendations,” he said. “Ultimately, do what you want – it’s your day!” See the full board here.

 Holly and Marshall were married at Calvary Chapel Christian Camp in Green Valley Lake, Calif. on October 18. Holly looked stunning in a strapless chiffon gown, her blonde locks down and softly curled. She carried a bouquet of white stock and pink roses, wrapped in periwinkle lace and a gold bird brooch. The bride told her ‘maids their dresses should be light pink sleeveless maxi dresses, but they could feel free to pick their own! ” I wanted it to be as cheap or expensive as each person could afford, ” Holly said. The groom donned khakis, and a blue button-down under a dark vest and plaid tie. His men opted for khakis, white button downs, and pink neck ties. The pair tied the knot in front of 250 guests at a campground that had sentimental value to the groom’s family. “Marshall and family would go up to the Campgrounds when he was little for Family Camp,” Holly explained. “When his dad passed away, they continued going to the Campgrounds for Thanksgiving every year, as it’s a very special place for them.” They exchanged vows in a rustic chapel with stunning views of the camp. An indoor reception followed, where guests were greeted by kraft paper tag escort cards. They were led to round tables with white linens and striped table runners. Each table number was attached to a photo of the bride and groom! ” I wanted to add a bit of glam for decorations, so when I think glam, glitter is the first thing that comes to mind,” Holly said. Their sweetheart table featured a sequined tablecloth, sequined monogrammed letters, and sequined dinosaurs. “The glittered dinosaurs were probably my favorite thing,” Holly said of the decor. Guests ate and danced the night away, and they even enjoyed a dessert table full of glazed donuts and a two-tier cake. The table featured family photos as well. Holly said she loved all the imperfections of their wedding day. “I learned the hard way that nothing is going to be perfect. I wanted it to be perfect so bad, and of course many things went wrong, but the day turned out so perfect in a different way.” See the full board here.
