Leah and Eric were married in a traditional church ceremony at First Presbyterian followed by a reception at The Venue at 400 North Ervay in Dallas, Texas on March 22. The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown with all-over embroidered beading, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black tuxedo, accessorized with a solid bow tie and pocket square. Bridesmaids wore a combination of short and long green chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, hydrangeas, and anemones. What could be cooler than cocktail hour on a rooftop deck in the heart of downtown? Guests enjoyed getting cozy on contemporary couches, accented with yellow and gray patterned decorative pillows and lit with geometric chandeliers. Since they both are wine distributors, it only made sense to subtly wove that theme into the decor. For example, escort cards were displayed on initialed corks, centerpieces were filled in wooden crates, and numbers were printed on bottles. In lieu of a guest book, well wishes were written on a selection of reds and whites for the newlyweds to open on future anniversaries. A three-tiered textured fondant and buttercream-frosted cake was served after dinner and in between dancing, but there was also a surprise! A mini chocolate cake for Eric. See the full board here.

DeYonne and Dorian were married at Katsuya by Starck in San Diego, Calif. last spring. The bride wore a sweetheart floral applique mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a blue Christian Louboutins and pear-shaped earrings, while the groom wore a classic black suit, accessorized with a gray bow tie (and glasses!). Bridesmaids stood out in their red peplum dresses, and groomsmen added a pop of color to their vests and pants with yellow bow ties. Following the restaurant ceremony, guests enjoyed “Lovely Lychee” signature cocktails and were escorted to their tables decorated with striped linens, floating candles, and rose and billy ball centerpieces in silver vases. Favor boxes filled with candies were at each place setting, but that didn’t stop anyone from having a bite or two of the cake and cupcakes! See the full board here.

Gina and Jonathan were married at J.Verno Studios in Pittsburgh, Penn. on September 13. ”We wanted a very modern wedding that cut out traditions to make room for our personalities,” Gina said. “We created a high-energy atmosphere from start to finish which also made the planning stress-free.” The bride wore a ruched fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls with a headband, while the groom wore a light gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Guests were greeted with the couple’s name projected on an all-white wall. “I walked down the aisle to one of my favorite electronic songs,” she said. “Jon met me halfway and escorted me the rest of the way.” They even wrote their own vows! The reception was lit with crystal chandeliers, tables were decorated with gray linens and yellow hydrangea centerpieces, and “He” and “She” signs were displayed, where each one wrote what they loved about another. For entertainment, the “shoe game” was played, and during the first dance, the bridal party joined the newlyweds on the dance floor and put on glow-in-the-dark, flashing glasses. How fun!

Halleh and Freeman were married at Scripps Park followed by a reception at Admiral Baker Clubhouse in San Diego, Calif. on August 3. ”Freeman grew up as a surfer in Santa Cruz, California and I have never lived away from the Pacific Ocean,” Halleh said. “We both feel incredibly connected to the water so when we thought of Scripps Park as a ceremony venue we were sold.” The bride wore a sweetheart ruffled ball gown, accessorized with sky-high peep-toe pumps with just the right amount of shimmer. ”I let the bridesmaids chose their own dresses,” she said. “All I asked is that they bought something blush and that they felt beautiful. Luckily, it worked out to be a beautiful bouquet of dresses and the shades really went well together!” Lots of details were DIY, including the driftwood arch the couple said, “I do” under, which was handmade by the bride’s sister and brother-in-law and potted succulent favors, which were planted by the bride months before the wedding, then creating the favor tags using a stamp and yarn. ”I wanted to create an environment that was not only a fun, beautiful event for our guests, but was very intimate and personal,” Halleh said. See the full board here.
