Arielle and Scott were married at Historic Mankin Mansion in Richmond, Va. on April 26. “Mankin Mansion is a beautiful wedding site that embodies old world charm,” Arielle said. “The trees and courtyard were lit with cast iron lanterns, and I invited my guests to enjoy the setting by renting vintage couches for lounging.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a keyhole back, accessorized with a floor-length veil, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Bridesmaids wore short chiffon dresses in dusty shale and graphite gray hues and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and Queen Anne’s lace. ”The weather for our wedding was something out of a fairytale,” she said. “It was low 80s and mostly sunny. The grounds were covered in wisteria, a purple flowering vine that puts off such a calming scent that carried throughout the entire evening.” After the exchanging of vows and rings, the newlyweds recessed down the aisle as guests threw lavender. “I remember thinking how happy we were to be surrounded by all of the people, who have loved and supported us throughout the years,” Arielle said. The reception followed underneath a pole tent, low lit with crystal chandeliers. Tables were decorated with white linens, lace doilies, gold charger plates, vintage teacups, and mix ‘n’ matched vase and vessel centerpieces. ”I spent my days off visiting thrift shops buying mismatched china, silver antiques, and unique glass vases,” she said. “I became enamored by all of the stories behind each item we collected.” There was also a display of family photos too! “We felt that it was important to blend the past with our future because it gave us a sense of pride for the families we came from,” Arielle said. They performed their first dance to “Cruisin’” by D’Angelo, posed in the photo booth with fun props, cut a five-tiered fondant cake, and exited at the end of the night amongst a sea of sparklers.

Corinna and Zack were married at Oak Hill in Hudson, N.Y. on August 24. The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown with a ruffled floral petal skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a solid tie and Converse tennis shoes. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short blush dresses and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. Their gifts? Burlap clutches. Guests were directed to the ceremony, reception, and yes, restrooms with a wooden sign post and were encouraged to take a fan to beat the hot, hot heat. The ceremony took place along the river with an expansive view of the Catskill Mountains in the background. Cocktail hour began with “Moose Juice,” fresh pineapple soaked in vodka, and “Jungle Juice,” fruit punch, lemon-lime fizz, and raspberry vodka, and lawn games such as corn hole. The reception was held inside the barn lit with string lights and draped with fabric. Tables were decorated with burlap runners, mason jar and wine bottle centerpieces atop wooden slices, and utensils wrapped in twine. Family style dinner included grilled steak, salmon, bbq chicken, pulled pork, mac ‘n’ cheese, and fresh vegetables. Yum! Plus, a strawberry shortcake for dessert. Just wait until you see the newlyweds’ send-off! Z + C = pure bliss. See the full board here.

Courtney + Cory: A Doctor Who Inspired Winter Texas Historic Mansion Wedding By Catie Bartlett Photography

Courtney and Cory were married at Thurman’s Mansion in Driftwood, Texas on March 16. “We knew we wanted a Doctor Who-inspired wedding, but didn’t want to overwhelm guests with our fandom,” Courtney said. Fun fact: It’s a British science-fiction television series. The bride wore a ruffled halter wedding gown, accessorized with a birdcage veil, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. ”Our wedding day was a beautiful yet cold day,” she said. “The sunshine was great, but the wind was freezing. We were thankful it was sunny though because our rehearsal the day before was drizzle and overcast weather.” Since they both are teachers, of course, they incorporated chalkboards. Guests were greeted to the ceremony with one that said, “Sealed for all time and space.” ”We were worried that our sand ceremony hourglass was going to blow over,” Courtney said. “But our pastor stepped in and made sure everything went off without a hitch.” Dinner and dancing followed with BBQ fare and a 3-dimensional police call box station cake. In lieu of centerpieces and a guest book, picture frames featured quotes and fill-in-the-blank Mad Libs were at each place setting. The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Close Your Eyes” by Michael Buble and exited through a sea of sparklers at the end of the night. See the full board here.
