Yvonne and Kevin were married at Airship 37 in Toronto, Canada on August 16. The bride looked radiant in her strapless lace gown with a scalloped neckline and off-white sash. She donned her hair in a messy chic updo and carried a bouquet of roses, freesia, seeded eucalyptus, mums, and hypericum berries. For the Chinese tea ceremony, the bride opted for a traditional red silk dress with gold embroidery. The groom looked handsome in a dark blue vested suit with a light purple button down shirt and striped neck tie. For the tea ceremony he donned silk attire with red designs on it. The day began with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony as a nod to the bride’s heritage. A ceremony followed in an industrial loft with purple uplighting. The 130 family members and friends sat in silver chiavari chairs which were uniquely arranged in a spiral. Pink circle garlands hung from the ceiling, which her friends tirelessly worked on making. Photos of the couple throughout their relationship hung from the wall by clothespins and bright flowers were arranged in white painted bottles throughout the space, as well as bamboo, which is significant in both the bride and groom’s culture. After vows were exchanged, a reception followed at the same location. “We wanted to create a really fun day that reflected our personalities and interests. We both love playing word games, so we incorporated various scrabble elements,” Yvonne said of the decor. In lieu of a traditional guestbook guests signed quilt squares. Family and friends sat at tables with white linens and Scrabble-inspired table numbers and colorful flowers in clear vases. “We set up dominoes and mah-jong tables for our guests to play after dinner,” Yvonne said of the guest entertainment. Both Yvonne and Kevin’s heritages were represented in the guest’s favors, which consisted of Jamaican rum cake and tea in a Chinese take-out box. Guests also got to indulge in a four-tier butter cream frosting cake adorned with colorful flowers. Yvonne’s wedding advice is plain and simple, “Don’t do anything you don’t want to do.” See the full board here.

Amanda and Tyler were married in a converted warehouse with exposed brick walls, steel trusses, wood ceilings, and concrete floors on December 31 — New Year’s Eve. The bride wore a sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls along with a a pearl statement necklace and a pair of blush Badgley Mischka strappy sandals. Bridesmaids chose their own dresses to flatter their figures. Of course, glitter was encouraged! As guests arrived, they were greeted with the words, “Come as you are, stay as long as you can, we’re all family, so no seating plan.” The ceremony was glowing with cafe lights, while the reception was lit with crystal chandeliers. Wine bottles were spray painted in different colors and filled with roses, astilbes, anemones, and peonies. Table numbers also served as candle holders. Clever, right? Decorative frames hung above the dessert display of cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops, and kazoos and party hats were ready to go for the stroke of midnight. See the full board here.

Kirsten and David met through mutual friends the weekend of Lollapalooza at a nightclub in 2011 and wed two years later at Aria in downtown Minneapolis. The venue stood out with it’s original brick walls, crystal chandeliers, and whimsical art work. “I wanted to find a way to soften the space,” Kirsten said. “We used strips on fabric on tables and hanging from the wall behind the ceremony space. I loved how it looked next to the brick!” She walked down the aisle wearing a slimming organza wedding gown with lace floral appliques, accessorized with a blush satin sash, to meet her soon-to-husband wearing a custom suit, shirt, and vest. Believe it or not, but the bouquets were ordered from Sam’s Club and assembled by family and friends. Following the ceremony, the loft was turned into the reception space. “We collected beer and wine bottles (over 400) and spray painted them in my parents’ backyard for centerpieces,” she said. And in lieu of favors, the couple had pizza delivered from Pizza Luce at the end of the night. See the full board here.
