Maria and Darren were married at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel in Riverside, Calif. on June 14. “We met nineteen years ago when we were 12 years old,” Maria said. “I was the one who chased him! I remember telling my older brother’s best friend that I loved Darren and was going to marry him.” The bride flattered in a fitted strapless lace gown and cathedral-length veil. Her wavy locks were clipped back with a sparkly hair pin and she opted for a simple necklace and earrings. She carried a classic bouquet of white peonies. The groom wore a black suit with a patterned neck tie and a white peony boutonniere. Her ‘maids wore bright red chiffon floor-length strapless dresses and carried bouquets of white peonies and roses. “Since my bridesmaids dresses were so bright and fun, I didn’t want to over do it with accent colors,” Maria said. The groomsmen were outfitted in gray three-piece suits, patterned ties, and calla lily boutonnieres. A reception followed the traditional church ceremony in the music room at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. Guests sat in chiavari chairs at round tables with tall floral centerpieces. “I kept the linens and flowers very simple; all ivory,” Maria said. ” I tied in the theme of my lace wedding dress to the cake, votive candles and all the bouquets were wrapped in lace.” After dinner, guests indulged in an all-white tiered cake topped with white peonies, of course! “I really wanted to keep it traditional yet contemporary at the same time,” Maria said. She definitely succeeded, and even managed to gather her all of her guests together to take a group photo! See the full board here.

Erin and Mathew were married at The Inn at Bay Harbor in Petoskey, Mich. on July 6. ”From the moment of the proposal in northern Michigan, we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding in this special place where we have vacationed with family, and as a couple for the past four years,” Erin said. The bride wore a strapless tea-length wedding gown with a floral appliques, accessorized with a birdcage veil and glitter peep-toe slingbacks, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a striped tie and Sperry Topsider boat shoes. Bridesmaids wore short satin dress in various necklines and carried bouquets of baby’s breath and dusty millers. “The ceremony was very intimate, as a great friend of ours officiated the wedding, and we were very involved in planning the entire ceremony,” she said. “I think our guests would agree with us that the best part was the ‘I love you because’ statements. Before the wedding, each of us wrote down the top 10 reasons why we loved the other, and gave it to our officiant. They were read aloud for the first time then.” In addition, there was a wine box and knot-tying too! Reception tables were decorated with navy blue linens, pink napkins, tall topiary and succulent birch slab centerpieces, and a custom favor box filled with a shot glass at each place setting. ”After our introduction,we had planned the dance from Napoleon Dynamite (‘Canned Heat’) to perform, however, since we had not rehearsed for the week leading up to the wedding, the routine was far from perfect,” Erin said. “Nevertheless, it is still one of my favorite memories.” See the full board here.

Portia and Desmond were married at Valley Green Inn in Philadelphia, Penn. on April 13. They first met while attending Loyola University in New Orleans. “After a couple of years of dating and too many years of distance, we moved in together in Philadelphia where Des was in medical school,” Portia said. ”We decided to get married in the City of Love because it is were we got engaged,” she said. “By our favorite mural . . . that reads, ‘If you were here, I’d be home now.’” The bride wore an antique-colored lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept loose curls updo and birdcage veil, while Desmond wore a navy blue suit, brown bow tie, and his glasses. Plus, a traditional Hawaiian lei around his collar! Following the outdoor nuptials, guests were asked to type out their well wishes and advice. The tech-savvy tips: “Don’t be shy! You have to punch the letters with some force. (Not an Iphone.)” The reception tables were decorated with mercury glass vases, which were collected over a year before the wedding, and ”gorgeous flowers and family pictures and old family relics (like maps and paitnings) completed our country chic-inspired look,” she said. Their first dance song? ”We both have a mutual love for Michael Jackson music,” Portia said. “And he put ‘Lady in my Life’ on his first mixtape he made for me during our courtship, so it was a no brainer.” See the full board here.

The bride wore a satin v-neck Amy Kuschel wedding gown, accessorized with a bell charm bracelet from her grandmother and carried an all-white calla lily bouquet, while the groom wore a gray suit. The outdoor ceremony took place on the scenic terrace, which features amazing panoramic views. Following the intimate nuptials, guests were served hors d’oeuvres, including mini toasts topped with caviar and creme fraiche. Inside, they sat at one long banquet table complete with different varieties of wine, of course. See the full board here.
