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.

Liz and Nick were married at The Wildflower Barn in Driftwood, Texas last spring. The proposal story? “Since Nick is Italian, he surprised me with a two-week tour of Italy and proposed on the roof of a villa in the tiny town of Cortona in Tuscany,” Liz said. “He had visited the town a year before with a friend and knew he had to bring me back so he could propose there.” Oh-so romantic! It rained for much of the day leading up to the ceremony, but the skies cleared just before the bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart satin fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with an ivory sash, while her groom, waited for her arrival at the altar, wearing a khaki suit, accessorized with a striped tie. They both were overcome with such emotion seeing each other for the first time! Guests, approximately 120, sat in wooden church pews and watched as the couple performed a sand unity with mason jars. The outdoor reception followed with tables decorated in burlap cloths, lace runners and centerpieces atop rustic tree stumps. “We wanted everything to be as low key and as easy going as possible,” Liz said. In lieu of a traditional guest book, wine bottles were signed with well wishes to be read on the newlyweds’ anniversaries. See the full board here.
