Mari and John were married at St. Gregory in Athens, Greece. The bride looked stunning in a lace and taffeta wedding gown with a V-back and bow sash. She wore her hair down and wavy and carried a white floral bouquet.  The groom looked handsome in a dark gray suit with a dark purple neck tie. The pair exchanged vows in a traditional ceremony in front of friends and family members. Rice was tossed at the newlyweds by their guests as they exited the church. Guests were greeted to the reception by a large black-and-white sign featuring illustations. The couple sat at a sweetheart table adorned with yarn-wrapped monograms and festive gray and white garlands. They gave their guests boxed favors adorned with pom-poms. Aside from a two-tier square cake, they had a dessert display featuring cake pops, and snowflake-shaped cookies. Guests broke it down on the dance floor and overall had a great time!

Kayla and Matt were married in the St. John’s College Chapel at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., followed by a reception at the University Women’s Club of Vancouver at Hycroft in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on September 3 and 4, 2014. Kayla stunned in a lace gown with a scoop neckline and cap sleeves. She donned an updo and carried a beautiful bouquet of pastel pink garden roses, pink foxglove, ivory dahlias, and greenery. Her ‘maids looked radiant in silk emerald green A-line dresses with varying necklines and statement necklaces. The men looked handsome in classic black tuxedos. “We were keen to have our ceremony in a place that was meaningful to both of us, so our college chapel at Cambridge was a natural choice,” Kayla explained. Following their nuptials, they had a champagne reception and then an intimate dinner at a pub across the street. Close friends and family then flew to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for a reception at a beautiful mansion covered in ivy. The cocktail hour consisted of lawn games such as bocce and croquet, and garden-themed cocktails such as gin and tonics and earl grey martinis. Guests took snapshots of themselves for the guest book and found their scripted escort cards in a moss-lined silver tray. “For both our receptions we were very keen to have lots of good wine and good food on hand – and figured the rest would follow,” Kayla said of the celebrations. Guests sat on the garden terrace at round white linen tables featuring candelabra centerpieces. Family members and friends enjoyed a sit-down dinner of bison and pacific salmon among other food. Guests were given vintage map magnets which were placed inside custom favor bags. Dancing followed, as well as the cutting of a three-tier red velvet cake adorned with flowers. Kayla’s best advice? “Unless you have a lot of time on your hands and an intense love of details, budgeting, and decision-making, be sure to enlist the help of a wedding planner.” See the full board here.

Joanne and Gerhard were married outside at Toadbury Hall in Johannesburg, South Africa on October 25. “I really love nature and my dream has always been to get married under a big tree with a lot of peonies,” Joanne said. “Our whole wedding was thus structured around the availability of peonies in South Africa, which is only a scarce two weeks of the year.” The bride wore a v-neck floor-length chiffon wedding gown with lace detailing and thin straps. She accessorized with a topaz necklace and a floral hair wreath sat atop her casually curled down hairstyle.  Her bridesmaids donned light blue dresses in various styles and also accessorized with floral wreaths too. The groom wore a casual navy blue suit with a black neck tie while his ‘men wore navy blue pants, white button-down shirts and suspenders. Following the ceremony, guests sat at long reception tables with candles and peony centerpieces. The couple opted for a cheese cake instead of a traditionally sweet one, which their guests enjoyed while the wedding party took photos. “My wedding was absolutely a fairy tale, it was everything I dreamt it would be and so much more,” she said. “Best thing is that I get to keep the groom.” See the full board here.
