Antonieta and Shawn were married at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island on October 19. “”We wanted our wedding to reflect us as a couple with some urban influences, some country influences, some southern influences, some international influences and some New England influences,” Antonieta said. “We both have roots in North Carolina, I grew up in Ecuador and we have both traveled extensively.” The bride wore a sweetheart chiffon wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom wore a three-piece black suit, accessorized with a bow tie. ”My dress was by Lindee Daniel, who is a designer from Los Angeles, that works with natural materials that are sustainably produced and responsibly sourced,” she said. “She gives back part of her profits to youth-at-risk in her area.” Bridesmaids wore long brown halter chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of calla lilies, roses, and berries. Guests were greeted with a basket of shawls to keep warm during the outdoor ceremony. The couple wed before 100 with a hand fast. ”It feels very rewarding to make the event your own,” Antonieta said. “Even though it is a lot of work to plan out details, I can´t imagine have done it any other way.” The signature drink? Hot apple cider, of course! Escort cards were shaped like luggage tags and directed them to tables named after cities. Reception tables inside the barn were decorated with red, orange, and yellow napkins, lanterns atop wood slices, and “hot” honey favor jars at each place setting. ”Since nearly every guest came in from out of town, we wanted to extend the festivities and have plenty of opportunities to spend time with friends and family,” she said. “We had a relaxed after party at The Dorrance, in downtown Providence, and we went apple picking the next day. We then left for our honeymoon in Bora Bora.” See the full board here.

Kristen and Ken were married at Congress Hall in Cape May, N.J. on October 12. Since the couple currently resides in New York City, they decided to have a mini-destination wedding at one of the nation’s best beach towns! The bride wore a sweetheart satin mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a classic updo and comb, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. Bridesmaids wore short navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of white dahlias, red roses, and purple thistles. Don’t you just love their J.Crew bow pumps? Since the handfasting ceremony was to take place on the historic hotel’s front porch, guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Snuggle Up” and asked to grab shawls to keep warm. After the newlyweds were announced husband and wife, the celebration began. Keeping with the seaside theme, escort cards were held in place with tiny pieces of coral, but reception tables were decorated with silver charger plates, napkins wrapped in striped ribbon, and lantern centerpieces that lit up the ballroom. Of course, the night ended with a picture picture moment of the four-tiered cake being cut. See the full board here.

Laura and Robert were married at Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, Md. last spring. ”Being mid-April, I was worried about rain,” Laura said. “But the day we got married was beautiful, and the sun was shining.” The bride wore a lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a pink tie. ”I wanted something really simple, not too over-the-top,” she said. “I found a lot of my ideas online. A few of the things I did were do-it-yourself too.” Following the Jewish ceremony, guests were given a mason jar with handwritten chalkboard stickers on it. Bonus: It doubled as their seating assignment! “Rob and I really didn’t want a big wedding,” Laura said. “I only wanted 75 people, but we ended up inviting 130 and only 109 attended. I was perfectly happy with that. I was glad I was able to speak with everyone and still have time to have fun.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Bob Dylan’s “To Make You Feel My Love.” Oh but one of the prettiest details was the mini cake. How can you resist those flowers? See the full board here.

Janet and Ricardo were married at Loulu Palm Estate in Oahu, H.I. on May 2. ”Hawaii is like our second home,” Janet said. “We had been going there once a year for last few years and were in love with the food, people, weather, and lifestyle. We wanted our family and friends to experience and hopefully fall in love with Hawaii the way we did.” The ceremony was held on the venue’s lawn with the ocean as their scenic backdrop. ”My dad did not get to see the dress prior to this day,” she said. “I wanted it to be a surprise not only for Ricardo, but for my dad as well. As soon as he saw me, the tears started rolling not only from him, but from me too.  It was a moment I will never forget.” The color scheme for the reception? Pink and orange! Guests sat in a clear-top tent surrounded by decorative branches and tropical orange orchid centerpieces. ”We really wanted to make sure we had awesome food,” Janet said. “Everything from a whole pig, poketinis, summer rolls, mini moco locos, surf and turf, and mochi ice cream while we danced to cool us off!” By the end of the night, a romantic glow of twinkling cafe lights were lit, and a three-tiered cascading floral cake was cut. See the full board here.
