Madhumati and Jared were married at the Adaland Mansion in Philippi, W.V. on June 15. The bride donned a fitted all-lace strapless gown with a jeweled neckline. Her locks were in a curled partial updo and she carried a romantic bouquet of  pink peonies, roses, and alstromeria. Her ‘maids stood by her side in short blush chiffon dresses with illusion bateau necklines. The groom and his men looked dapper in light gray vested suits and accessorized with boutonnieres featuring ivory and blush roses, alstromeria, burlap, and greenery. “We wanted our wedding to be a big party,” Madhumati said. “So we kept everything really informal and easy. We wanted to have an outdoor wedding amongst the mountains of West Virginia.” The ceremony took place outside in front of a sprawling white trellis and 100 of their closest friends and family members. Tin cans doubled as vases holding baby’s breath flower arrangements as aisle markers. After vows were exchanged, a reception followed at the same location. Guests dropped off their cards in a chic box adorned with a black and pink banner, burlap, lace and pink flowers. Floral wreaths made of ivy, daisies, and wildflowers hung from the ceiling rafters and the couple enjoyed a sweetheart table with white iron chairs. ” Almost everything we did for the wedding was DIY with our families and friends help,” Madhumati said of the decor. “We kept everything organic and whimsical!” Guests were greeted at their seats by creative place mats that featured fun games to play. The bride and her ‘maids arranged a traditional Bollywood dance as a gift for her husband. Guests had dinner and enjoyed a two-tier buttercream cake adorned with flowers and a heart topper. Then they all danced the night away! Madhumati encourages couples to keep things in perspective while planning. ” Remember what is important to you! Your marrying the love of your life!” See the full board here.

Tricia and Adam were married at Holland Marsh Winery in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on September 1. Tricia looked gorgeous in a ruched chiffon fit ‘n flare gown with a strapless sweetheart neckline. Her colorful bouquet featured coral and apricot roses, purple pincushions, blue delphinium, anemones, Queen Anne’s lace, dusty miller, brunia berries, and pittosporum. Her ‘maids donned long purple-gray chiffon dresses with various necklines. The groom and his men opted for a more casual look in light gray suits and lavender button-down shirts, without ties. The pair married outside as 140 guests looked on in white folding chairs. “For us, it was very important that our wedding was filled with things that we loved and reflected who we were as people,” Tricia said. “We didn’t want to end up doing things just because ‘That’s the way it’s always been done at weddings.'” The ceremony featured a drink station with a large chalkboard sign, where guests could grab flavored water on the way to watch the couple tie the knot. The aisle was marked with hydrangeas, roses, and Queen Anne’s lace. A reception followed at the winery, where guests sat at round tables featuring floral centerpieces in mason jars atop wood slices. “We had a conversation and listed all of the things that we loved and hated about weddings that we’d been to,” Tricia said. “Then we just kept all of the things that we loved, and chucked the things that we hated. With that, we had the perfect blueprint for our day.” Guests were given shoes for the dance floor and indulged in a sparkly tiered cake made by the bride’s aunt, adorned with a custom topper. “Remember that if you’re happy, then all those who love you will be happy too,” Tricia said.

Jessica and Galen were married at the Crossed Keys Inn in Andover, New Jersey on August 17. Jessica looked stunning in an all-lace fit ‘n flare strapless gown accented with a satin sash. Her hair was in a curly partial updo and accessorized with crystal drop earrings. She carried a bouquet of au lait dahlias, garden roses, silver brunia berries, tied together with a lace ribbon. Her ‘maids wore short blush chiffon dresses with various necklines. The groom and his men looked dapper in dark suits and neck ties. The pair tied the knot in a garden at the inn behind an old barn. “We wanted the aesthetic to reflect a vintage chic feel,” Jessica said. “We didn’t want a sleek, modern, fancy theme. Rather, we were attracted to the simple charm of an outdoor tent wedding that would allow us to infuse small, unique design touches.” A tented reception followed at the inn. A welcome table displayed a framed escort card board, photos of the couple, and mercury glass votive candles. In lieu of a traditional guestbook, the couple had their guests sign a black and white tree print. Friends and family sat at round tables with white linens and gray table runners, with flowers and wooden table numbers as the centerpieces. Guests enjoyed a three-course meal and danced the night away on the dance floor. “The band gathered all the Muhlenberg alumni on the dance floor and with about 40 friends from our Alma mater in one big huddle, we could really feel the love of our friends who have become our family,” Jessica said. For dessert a three tier cake was served and it was adorned with pink and white flowers. “Remember, you’re going to have a blast no matter what unforeseen circumstances arise,” Jessica said.
