Taia and Tyler were married at the Museum of the City of New York in New York, NY on October 4. The bride looked gorgeous in a more casual get-up complete with a knee-length silk dress, a white cardigan, and blue lace peep-toe heels. Her hair was done in a single braid and adorned with white flowers. She carried a colorful bouquet of purple dinner plate dahlias, disianthus, and bupleurum. The groom looked dapper in a dark blue suit with a purple neck tie. The pair tied the knot in front of 80 guests in the garden at the museum. “We really wanted to have a small wedding of only our closest friends and family,” Taia said. Close friends of the couple officiated the ceremony and incorporated other loved ones as well. A reception followed inside which featured twinkling lights throughout the space. “Our focus was on having good food and drinks in a comfortable environment,” Taia said of the reception. The tables featured red floral arrangements and votive candles. The bride’s best advice? “Don’t make your own invitations unless you are having fewer than 50 people!” See the full board here.

She softly curled her red hair and opted for a ballet length veil. She carried a bouquet of white fabric roses. Her best girls looked glamorous in fitted gold sequined dresses. The groom looked handsome in a gray suit and black neck tie, while his men were clad in gray dress pants and blush bow ties.  The pair exchanged vows outside in front of an altar made from birch trees and it was adorned with vintage lace and garden roses. A reception followed on the patio. “We wanted our wedding to be so “us”. In our free time we are thrift store fanatics & flea market freaks,” Nicole said of her decor inspiration. “I thrifted all of our decor for over a year.” The reception tables featured striped taper candlesticks and pillar candles displayed in mix-n-match brass holders. The space was filled with romantic candles of every kind, as well as string lights. “Nothing is more romantic to me than being surrounded by the soft glow of candles.” Guests used cocktail napkins with the phrase “I’ll drink to that” printed on them. The guests enjoyed dinner, a photo booth, and a three-tier white-frosted cake adorned with blush peonies. The couple gave out coffee and tea as favors to their guests as a way to thank them. “At the end of the day you are marrying the person you love, that’s what it’s all about. Not the champagne and caviar- just true love,” Nicole said. See the full board here.

Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Sarah and Dave were married at The Gardens At Great Oaks in Roswell, Ga. on May 3. The bride glowed in a strapless lace A-line gown accessorized with a pearl necklace, her hair in an elegantly curled side ponytail. She carried a bright bouquet of white hydrangeas, roses, and yellow calla lilies. Her ‘maids opted for blue and white lace v-neck dresses and partial updos. The groom and his men looked handsome in gray suits and pale yellow neck ties. As guests arrived they were given handmade yellow programs and greeted by a yellow and gray printed sign indicating to seat wherever they pleased. “Dave and I wanted our wedding to be an extension of who we are and what we love,” Sarah explained. 80 friends and family members sat in white folding chairs as the pair exchanged vows in the garden on a gorgeous sunny day. “As it turns out we had the most beautiful day… I wouldn’t have changed a single thing, especially the weather,” Sarah said. A reception followed at The Gardens, where guests signed a large framed photo of the couple in lieu of a traditional guestbook. “We created most of the decoration items ourselves which allowed us to splurge on some fun things,” Sarah said. The couple made the terrarium centerpieces, and the groom’s mother helped Sarah make table runners and ribbon wedding wands. Tables were also dressed up with mason jars of sunflowers and baby’s breath. Family and friends enjoyed a photo booth and delicious food as part of the celebration. There was also a popcorn station featuring a variety of flavors and served in mason jars. “I’m glad we spent the time creating an atmosphere full of details that reflected us as a couple,” Sarah said of the decor.  As a favor, guests received handmade trail mix, which the couple dubbed Haverkamp Happy Trails Mix. Sarah advises newly engaged couples not to shy away from asking for help. “We had an all-star group of people that made our special day come to life exactly the way we envisioned it,” she said.
