Melissa and Theo were married at Trezzi Farm Winery in Colbert, Wash. on July 12. Melissa looked gorgeous in a strapless ballgown with a sweetheart neckline and an intricate updo, the groom opted for a classic gray suit. The pair exchanged vows in front of 100 guests outside on the vineyard. “Their facility had everything we were looking for and people were generous and kind,” Melissa said of the venue. The cone aisle markers were made of sheet music, moss, branches, and purple ribbon. A wooden pergola with hanging baskets acted as the ceremony backdrop, and family and friends looked on from wooden benches. “Our choice of a winery helped me to decide on eggplant purple, ivory, and green as our wedding colors. This wine theme also extended into some of our decorations,” Melissa said of the decor inspiration. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks before moving into the barn for the reception. Family and friends sat at long wooden tables in wooden chiavari chairs which tied into the rustic vineyard decor. The centerpieces were made of repurposed wine bottles and flowers which sat atop a wood slice that the bride’s father had cut down from their property. Melissa learned a valuable lesson while wedding planning. “I learned is that it was our wedding and we could do whatever we wanted and it didn’t have to fit into the model of what a traditional wedding should look like.” See the full board here.

Amy and Jimmy were married at Bayside Cottages in Orcas Island, Wash. on September 5. The bride looked radiant in a v-neck gown with floral embroidery and a gold sash with matching gold flats. She wore her hair in a wavy partial updo and carried a bouquet of ivory and pale blush roses accented with pieris and feathers. The groom looked handsome in a light gray suit with a yellow striped neck tie. The couple tied the knot in front of 18 close friends and family members on the grounds of Bayside Cottages overlooking the water. ” Our goal was to create a memorable experience for all, in a pristine and private setting surrounded by natural beauty and love,” Amy said of their wedding inspiration. A reception followed inside where guests sat at tables featuring white linens, lace table runners, and green mason jars adorned with lace ribbon. ” The setting was the most beautiful place on earth and brought me back to my childhood memories of a cabin in the woods on a northern MI lake,” Amy said of their location. Guests enjoyed dinner and for dessert indulged in a two-tier chocolate cake adorned with ivory roses and greenery. Amy’s advice for couples on their wedding day? “Show gratitude while you’re in the presence of your guests and make everyone feel special.” See the full board here.

Kimberly and Jeremy were married at Cedarhill Golf and Country Club in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on May 18.

Her ‘maids opted for floor-length deep blue one-shoulder dresses. The groom and his men looked dapper in classic black tuxes. The pair exchanged vows in a light-filled tent outside in front of just 75 guests. “We wanted a small wedding, close to our home. It was recommended to us by another couple because the food is amazing!” Kimberly said of the wedding venue. A reception followed inside the golf and country club, where guests sat at round tables covered in crisp white linens. They were greeted at their seats by a thank you note on navy blue stationery and tulip centerpieces. Kimberly’s favorite DIY detail? The re-purposed wine bottle chalkboards used as table numbers. Guests danced the night away, and ate some amazing food of course! See the full board here.

Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Natalie and Aaron were married at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo. on August 9. Natalie wore her mother’s v-neck lace gown with short sleeves. Her hair was down and wavy, and she accessorized with a crystal headband, classic dangling earrings, and a matching necklace. She carried a bouquet of yellow and ivory roses, ranunculus, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids donned strapless chiffon dresses in various shades of yellow, gray, and champagne. The groom and his men looked handsome in dark suits and pale yellow ties. The ceremony took place outside the hotel with the Colorado mountains serving as the backdrop. The couple exchanged vows in front of just 70 guests under a wrought iron arch with hanging florals. The ceremony included an adorable flower girl and ring bearer pair and personal vows. A reception followed inside the hotel in a room with sweeping mountain views. Guests sat at round tables with crisp white linens and movie-inspired centerpieces. “Since the wedding was at the Stanley Hotel which was the inspiration for the Stephen King novel ‘The Shining,’ we added subtle references to the book and movie adaptions,” Natalie said. “One example was our hedge animal centerpieces. The other parts of the décor were more in line with the old fashioned feel of the hotel.” The bride and groom had everyone join in and dance with them for their entrance, a unique twist on a wedding tradition! After dinner, guests indulged in a three tier white cake adorned with yellow flowers. Natalie’s advice for engaged couples planning their wedding? “Don’t try to hire friends to save a buck; you get what you pay for,” she said. “I spent more than I would have liked but in the end it was definitely worth it!” See the full board here.
