Lucy and Ryan were married at Seven Day Adventist Church in North Perth, Australia, followed by a reception at Sittella Winery in Swan Valley, on April 27. The bride opted for a casual look with a strapless, flowy gown featuring ruching and layering details. She wore her hair in a relaxed updo under a veil that Lucy and her grandmother handmade together. She carried a bouquet complete with dark red peonies, thistle, and greenery. Her ‘maids wore short, sleeveless, navy blue dresses and carried bouquets featuring white blooms and greenery. The groom donned a navy blue suit and bow tie, while his men wore white button-down shirts with red ties. “Everything was centered around creating a warm atmosphere,” Lucy said. “I have dappled in a bit of interior design so I took on the role of visual design of the ceremony and reception.” The couple exchanged vows in front of 100 guests in a traditional ceremony, with an ivy-covered arch as the backdrop, and featured the bride’s 5-year-old cousin as the flower girl. The guests then moved to the Sittella Winery for food, drinks, and dancing. “We wanted our wedding to be relaxed- a day where we could celebrate the start of the rest of our lives and genuinely enjoy the company of our closest friends and family,” Lucy said. Each table featured a floral centerpiece, with the table number written on a mini chalkboard, and tea towel favors designed by the couple.The reception featured games such as the newlywed shoe game, and a more creative component as well! “Each table had to come up with a poem for the bride and groom- a very hilarious event that included a spectacular impromptu rap form one of the guests,” Lucy said. Guests enjoyed a three-tiered cake adorned with greenery for dessert. Lucy’s advice for engaged couples? “Set aside regular times during the planning to keep your family and brial party in the loop,” she said. “It’s important that everyone is on the same page for the big day.” See the full board here.

Morgan and Zach were married at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Ala. on September 1. The bride wore a fitted strapless lace gown with a chapel length train and a lace-edged veil. She wore her hair in loose waves and carried a bouquet of chamomile, mums, spray roses, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids were outfitted in short navy blue lace dresses with various necklines and carried a bouquet just like the bride’s. Her groom looked dapper in a Jos A. Bank khaki suit complete with a patterned navy tie, and his groomsmen matched perfectly! The ceremony took place under a tree outside as 150 guests looked on in white folding chairs. “I wanted our wedding to be romantic yet rustic,” Morgan explained. “Because it was outdoors, I wanted the decor and flowers to be an extension of nature and not overpower the natural beauty of the gardens.” Guests then enjoyed cocktail hour where they drank pink beverages out of mason jars. They were seated at round tables with white linens and blush flower centerpieces, that sat atop burlap fabric. The wedding party sat at a long banquet table facing the other guests. After dinner, guests indulged in a small two-tiered cake and lots of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes! Since both the bride and groom met while in school at University of Alabama, they had a fun twist on the average send-off. “For our farewell, all the guests were given Alabama spirit shakers and we walked through with guests on both sides of us while singing the fight song,”  Morgan said. Talk about a memorable exit! See the full board here.

 Mallory and TJ were married at Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, N.J. on May 25. ”After that first date, we were both smitten,” Mallory said. “We saw each other a few other times that month and things quickly progressed into a wonderful relationship. We had been dating for a year and a half when he popped the question!” The bride wore a strapless satin mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a white vest and tie. Bridesmaids wore short navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and hydrangeas. ”I just wanted something simple, elegant and classic,” she said. “My approach was to stay on a budget and keep things simple while adding fun creative touches.” Guests were greeted at the ceremony with a sign that said, “Today, two families become one. We ask that you please pick a seat not a side.” ”Our wedding day was the most perfect day,” she said. “The sun was shining, the sky was beautiful blue, and the breeze was just enough to keep comfortable under the sunny skies and considering we were married outdoors – it was perfect.” Can’t you tell that it was full of laughter — and some tears? Following the nuptials, cocktail hour began, then the reception inside the ballroom. There was even a cigar bar! The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Close Your Eyes” by Michael Buble, and cut their four-tiered monogrammed cake in between toasts. ”I would not have changed a thing!” Mallory said.

Erin + Matthew: A Preppy Navy Blue and Pink Summer Waterfront Michigan Inn Wedding By Jennifer Weems Photography

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.
