Miranda and Rodney were married at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, Calif. on September 29. The bride looked flawless in a strapless tulle ball gown accented with a blush sash. Miranda topped off the romantic look with a long curly ‘do and carried a bouquet of spray roses, a peachy pink cafe au lait dahlia, and fall foliage. Her best pals donned neutral tones in various fabrics and lengths. The groom and his men looked handsome in gray three-piece suits. The groom stood out from the crowd in a black bow tie, while his men opted for striped purple neck ties.  He also sported a ranunculus, fall wildflowers, and plum-toned boutonniere. “”We really let the dramatic venue and the flowers take center stage at the wedding – they made up the bulk of our décor,” Miranda described. Miranda and Rodney were married  in front of 135 friends and family members. The ceremony was “community-oriented,” as Miranda put it, and they asked their mothers and a friend to offer prayers and readings that were special to the couple. “I never thought I would have such fun during the ceremony,” Miranda said. “But it was definitely the highlight of the day for me.”  A family-style dinner followed, where guests sat in wooden folding chairs at tables featuring floral centerpieces in antique silver vases and purple accent linens. Following dinner, guests enjoyed a night of dancing and watched a slideshow that featured photos of the bride and groom as infants up to that day! They indulged in a three tier cake adorned with roses. As a favor, guests received a half-pound bag of coffee from a local roaster. Miranda’s favorite moment? “The most surreal and perfect moment was the raucous, sustained applause after we kissed.” See the full board here.

Leah + Eric: A Modern Black-Tie Texas Rooftop Wedding By Hilary Grace Photography

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!
