Laura and Jessica were married at the Veranda Beach House in Manhattan Beach, Calif. on May 31. “Our inspiration was to make our wedding a huge bash to celebrate having all of our loved ones in the same room, sharing our joy as we married. Everything was planned with that spirit in mind,” Laura said. One bride wore a lace a-line wedding gown with capped sleeves, accessorized with a pair of pink cut-out booties, while the other bride wore a gray suit, accessorized with a pair of sneakers. The wedding color scheme featured “wisteria purple and celadon green, borrowing from the succulents that dotted our floral arrangements, and coral orange, reminiscent of the inside of a conch shell to pay homage to our beachside nuptials,” she said. Guests were greeted with a repurposed window panel that said, “Welcome, friends. Meet us in the garden,” and given “Yippie” and “Hooray” flags to wave. Laura walked down the aisle to Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition,” and Jessica walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s “Canon in D.” During the ceremony, the couple sealed love letters and a bottle of wine into a box, not to be opened until their fifth anniversary. The newlyweds’ best advice? “My best piece of advice is that you don’t have to be conventional – be unique!” Laura said. “Don’t want to do a bouquet toss? Toss lottery tickets! Don’t want to have a wedding cake? Get cake pops! Want to think outside the box? Use unconventional music choices, incorporate pops of color and statement jewelry, do things your own way and don’t let anyone else color in your vision of your perfect wedding but you and your partner.” Escort cards were attached to boxes of chocolates, which also served double-duty as favors, tables were decorated with wooden box centerpieces and lanterns, and the numbers included fun facts. “While we incorporated many sophisticated elements in our design, we never wanted the evening to feel stuffy or the decorations over the top,” she said. “We were so thrilled to have achieved the perfect balance of classy decor with a joyful and light touch, all rolled into the biggest party our guests had ever experienced!” See the full board here.

Leah and Eric were married at The Crestmore Manor in Riverside, Calif. on June 28. Fun fact: They met their sophomore year at Azusa Pacific University. Go Cougars! The bride wore a strapless ball gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair in a sideswept ponytail, while the groom wore a three-piece dark gray suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore short satin blue dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, roses, and hydrangeas. Guests were greeted with cold bottles of water and mini trail mix snacks upon arrival to beat the heat and any hungry stomaches. The labeling said, “Traffic was NUTS, the drive was HEARTY; you may be tired, BUT it’s time to PARTY.” Following the exchanging of vows and rings underneath old shade trees, the reception began in the courtyard, lit with string lights overhead. Escort cards were displayed on a board adorned with ribbons, and tables were decorated with textured linens, pink and white glass vase centerpieces atop mirrors, and bubbles at each place setting, which served double-duty as favors. In addition to a three-tiered cake topped with a monogram, there was also a fully-stocked dessert bar, complete with delectables like lollipops, macarons, cupcakes, sour roll ups, and meringues. Believe it or not — the newlyweds performed their first dance just as the sun was setting. See the full board here.
