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.

Lauren + Anthony: Green and Purple Italian-Inspired Arizona Wedding by Jillian Ryan Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Lauren and Anthony were married at Cibo Urban Pizzeria Cafe in Phoenix, Arizona on April 6. The bride wore a strapless dress with a ruched bodice and a green and purple embroidered sash, her hair in relaxed curls. She carried a bouquet of succulents, mums, baby’s breath and assorted greenery. Her ‘maids donned green floor-length strapless dresses and held bouquets filled with baby’s breath, mums, and daisies. The groom looked dapper in a purple-checkered button-up, paisley tie, and gray vest. His men wore green-checkered button-up shirts with khaki pants. The reason for all the green and purple? “Choosing colors was hard for me, but we decided on purple for our football team back home (The Ravens) and green is Anthony’s favorite color,” Lauren said. The intimate crowd of 75 guests gathered outside to watch Lauren and Anthony exchange their vows, which she says took them just 4 minutes. “That gave us more time to party,” she said. Guests headed off to the outdoor reception at the restaurant where a picture frame doubled as a seating chart, leading them to their seats. Colorful streamers decorated the outdoor area, and guests sat at banquet tables with cafe chairs and wire table numbers, which the bride’s brother made. “We both come from Italian families so we wanted to include that culture in a little bit, with Italian desserts, music, and the dinner,” Lauren said. After enjoying the Italian fare (pizza and pasta, yum!) the guests took advantage of the photo booth, indulged in a two-tiered cake with butter cream frosting, and took home personalized candles as a favor. “Our families mesh so well together, so it was just a big party all day,” Lauren recalled. “Our wedding was intimate, dreamy and so perfect, it could not have gone any better.” See the full board here.

Heather + Leah: A Vintage Literary-Themed Summer New York Vineyard Wedding By John Schlia Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Heather and Leah were married at Barlow’s Mill, the bride’s parent’s vineyard, in Fredonia, N.Y. on June 29. “We tried to take a fairly laid-back approach,” Heather said. “We knew we wanted the wedding to be outside, and we knew that we wanted it to feel homey and relatively casual and fun.” The brides both wore sweetheart a-line wedding gowns, accessorized with sashes and custom-painted Converse tennis shoes, and carried bouquets of roses, orchids, and succulents. “We each asked the men and women, who were most important in our lives to stand up with us, and we asked each woman to wear a green dress that they would wear again someday,” she said. “We loved having them all there with us, looking and feeling like themselves.” Even their golden retriever pooch got to lounge around too! The newlyweds made their grand entrance into the tented reception with 120 guests cheering. “Leah’s sister Ruth is amazing at decorating things, and after she threw us the most beautiful bridal shower ever, we told her that if she would take charge of the decorating, we would just do what she told us to do! And we pretty much did,” Heather said. “She had such a great eye and just helped us make things beautiful.” Tables were decorated with stacks of vintage books, clocks, monogrammed letters, and lanterns atop burlap runners. The favors? Basil plants in mason jars. At the end of the night, a bonfire was lit to roast s’mores and keep warm. See the full board here.
