Brandy and Dug were married at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, S.C. on May 23. ”The best compliment I received was that our wedding ‘was the most un-wedding wedding I have ever attended,’” Brandy said. “It was beautiful and simple and relaxed. We wanted to have our family and friends there to celebrate our special day but neither of us like being the center of attention.” The bride wore a strapless fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a birdcage veil and jeweled sash, while the groom wore a three-piece tan suit, accessorized with a solid tie and Converse tennis shoes. Bridesmaids wore short green satin dresses and carried bouquets of viburnum, orchids, ranunculuses, and scabiosa pods. Notice the mustaches on the groomsmen’s socks? ”We thought when we planned our wedding for mid-April in South Carolina we were likely to have great weather,” she said. “Well, it was 39 degrees when we woke up on the day of our (outdoor!) wedding. Luckily at 6p.m., it was 74 degrees without an ounce of wind at the ceremony site. The sun was shining brightly and it could not have been a more picture perfect day.” The entire day was very non-traditional — there was a passage from Bob Marley read, no first dance, no cake cutting, and food stations instead of a plated dinner. Reception tables were decorated with “very organic and natural” centerpieces atop burlap runners. I asked the florist to have low centerpieces,” Brandy said. “It drives me crazy to go to a wedding that has floral arrangements blocking the view of people seated across the table.” In lieu of a guest book, each guest signed a vintage postcard and place it into a suitcase. At the end of the night, the newlyweds exited amongst a sea of sparklers. See the full board here.

Alexandra and Josh were married in a traditional church ceremony at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic followed by a reception at LIUNA Gardens in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on October 12. The bride wore a textured v-neck wedding gown with capped sleeves, accessorized with a greenery wreath in her loose curls, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a bow tie and pocket square. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short neutral chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, dahlias, astilbes, and berries wrapped in lace. Following the vows, the newlyweds exited down the stairs amongst a sea of bubbles blown by guests. Inside the ballroom, escort cards were displayed in a bed of pearls against vintage doors that said, “Your seat awaits you,” and words of wisdom were written on cards to be opened on milestone anniversaries. Reception tables were decorated with sparkly sequin linens, over 125 pillar candles, mirror picture frame numbers, and jars of honey at each place setting — a sweet favor! In addition to the three-tiered buttercream wedding cake, there was also a mini unfrosted or “naked” wedding cake. Dancing continued throughout the night all thanks to a disco ball shining bright from the ceiling, but it was the fireworks display that really wowed. See the full board here.

Tiffany and Michael were married at Barrier Island Sanctuary followed by reception at Ryckman Park in Melbourne, Fla. on November 16. ”I always wanted my wedding in a garden, and Mike always wanted to get married on the beach,” Tiffany said. “We compromised and had both!” The bride wore a v-neck lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a braided updo, while the groom wore a tan three-piece suit, accessorized with a white tie. Bridesmaids wore mint chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, hydrangeas, and berries. “Seafoam is my favorite color, so that was an easy choice,” she said. Tiffany walked down the aisle arm-in-arm with her dad as a rock and reggae band played. How cool is that? Following the nuptials, all 95 guests were seated underneath a tent. Tables were decorated with white linens, coral napkins, and gold charger plates. Notice the “Mint to Be” tins? Those served as fresh favors. The newlyweds performed their first dance to Lauryn Hill’s cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” but “our guests didn’t want to leave the dance floor at the end of the night!” Tiffany said. Good thing they didn’t miss out of the wish lantern send-off! See the full board here.

Francine + Danny: A Casual Outdoor California Garden Wedding By Tikko Weddings
Posted by czentgraf. Filed under Real Weddings

Francine and Danny were married at Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo, Calif. on September 6. They first met at a Coachella music festival. ”He tried to be funny by splashing water in my face (I didn’t think so!),” Francine said. “We’ve been having a blast and making jokes ever since.” A square piece of fabric was included in the invitations for guests to write well wishes on and return with their RSVP card. ”Once we had them all, a friend graciously sewed them together into a quilt,” she said. “The quilt, with all its wonderful messages of love and support, was our backdrop during the ceremony.” The bride wore a v-neck beaded wedding gown with fluttery sleeves, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a striped tie.  The outdoor ceremony and reception decor featured patterned bunting, pinwheels, and vintage postcards. ”We just did what what felt right,” Francine said. “It was all about keeping it simple and casual, but of course with good music and style.” Long tables included a mixture of vases and vessels with single stem roses and proteas, but the dessert display donned fruit tarts and chocolate chip cookies instead of cake! Don’t worry they had two. See the full board here.
