Kari and Eamon were married at Bhy Kracke Park with a reception following at Blue Ribbon Cooking School in Seattle, Wash. on June 21. Kari looked beautiful in a vintage lace strapless sweetheart gown with a crystal belt. She wore her hair down in soft waves and carried a bouquet of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, waxflower, and dusty miller. The groom looked dapper in a gray vested suit with a pale button down shirt and a black neck tie. The couple tied the knot in a park that had breathtaking views of downtown Seattle. Tissues were provided for guests at a table with chalkboard signage and the couples’ dog was featured in the ceremony and donned a floral collar. “The couple had one of the most personal, beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen,” Jenny Storment, their photographer, said. “During the ceremony Kari & Eamon included both sets of parents and siblings in reading quotes & passages that were important to the them.” A reception followed at the Blue Ribbon Cooking School where guests enjoyed refreshments and a sit-down dinner. The guests sat in black folding chairs at banquet tables covered in white linens. Each place setting consisted of gold charger plates and black napkins.  Friends and family danced the night away and enjoyed the photo booth as well. As a favor guests were given jars of sea salt covered in burlap. See the full board here.

Caroline and Sanket were married at Congress Park in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. followed by a reception at Canfield Casino on June 29. The couple had two ceremonies at the park, the first one being a traditional Indian ceremony. The bride looked radiant in a mint, pink, and gold lehenga and donned classic curls for the affair. The groom looked dapper in a white sherwani featuring red, gold, and mint embroidery. The groom and his family danced underneath a red umbrella as part of his entrance to the ceremony. They were married under a big structure featuring mint and hot pink draping and stunning floral arrangements. The bride and groom sat in red velvet chairs surrounded by their family in gold chiavari chairs. “Despite the heat, I really enjoyed the Indian ceremony,” Caroline said. “It is hard to appreciate all the details of the ceremony — the colors, smells, sounds– unless you’re right there in it.” A traditional American ceremony followed, and the bride changed into an A-line gown featuring a beaded sweetheart bodice and a tulle skirt. She wore her hair in a delicate updo and carried pink peonies, garden roses, and succulents. Her ‘maids rocked long pink chiffon gowns with various necklines. After the second ceremony concluded, everyone moved to the Canfield Casino for the reception. The venue featured high ceilings and stained glass windows. The tables were decorated with bejeweled votive candles, mint and gold table numbers, and light pink compote vases filled with roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. The escort cards had a pink, blue, and gold pattern on them that was reminiscent of their invitation style. Guests ate and danced the night away, and indulged in a one-tier buttercream cake with a gold lasercut topper and adorned with flower petals. “Be unique and personalize your event to you and your partner– don’t compare your wedding to friends’ weddings or Pinterest,” Caroline said.

Briana + Dan: A Simple Blue Spring South Dakota Lodge Wedding By Cadey Reisner Weddings
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Briana and Dan were married at State Park Lodge in Custer, S.D. on May 31. “Neither Dan nor I were ever picky about decorations or the look we were hoping to capture,” Briana said. “We wanted everything about the day to focus on our commitment and love for God.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with an illusion neckline, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls and a pair of “something blue” wedges, while the groom wore a light gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid white tie. Bridesmaids wore short gray taffeta dresses in various necklines and carried bouquets of calla lilies. “We had a dark, rainy day before the wedding and another dark rainy day after the wedding,” she said. “But as my groom promised for months, our day was 70 and sunny.” Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign, which served double duty as the the program. During the ceremony, the couple performed a foot washing. A towel was customized with “And the two shall become one.” The newlyweds’ best advice? “Enjoy your months of hard work and celebrate what you have created together with your love,” she said. “If you are anxious or worried, everyone around you will be as well. Take a deep breathe, relax, and others around you will pick up on your calmness too.” Dinner and dancing was held underneath a pavilion. “Although the lace and pearls were beautiful, they were the perfect balance of casual and romantic, allowing nature to the the main decoration,” Briana said. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and nieces, and nephews got first priority seating. “We chose an acoustic version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Lego,'” she said. See the full board here.

Mandy + Jens: A Rustic Gray and Yellow Fall North Carolina Park Wedding By Anchor & Veil Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

 Photos: Anchor & Veil PhotographyVenue: Tanglewood Park

 Mandy and Jens were married at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, N.C. on October 5. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a polka dot fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a yellow button-up shirt and gray pants, accessorized with suspenders and a patterned tie. The only ‘maid wore a short black chiffon dress and carried a bouquet of roses and billy balls. Even the couple’s Yorkshire Terrier pup joined with a fashionable collar and leash. Guests were greeted with a wooden arrow sign that directed them to the ceremony and reception. To say Mandy made a grand entrance was an understatement — she arrived in a horse-drawn carriage. To symbolize their unity, they combined mason jars of sand together. The reception followed underneath a pavilion. Picnic tables were decorated with beer and wine bottles wrapped in twine, lace doilies, bird’s nests and eggs, and wooden slices with “W+M” carved into each one. “No two bottles were the same,” Mandy said. Dinner was served BBQ-style including, chicken, potato salad, baked beans, cole slaw, and rolls. Everyone was encouraged to sign a square for a quilt that was to be sewn together as a keepsake (and in lieu of a guest book). After the now Mr. and Mrs. performed their first dance, the father-daughter dance was performed, but with a twist — her mother too.  “Even though it’s not tradition, our closeness made it only right to dance with her the perfect song,” she said. See the full board here.
