Lindsay + Nick: A Fun NYC Park Wedding by Levi Stolove
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Lindsay and Nick’s early spring nuptials sum up everything we love about the surprises of personalized weddings. At first glance, the pretty pastel ceremony seems to be set in a secluded forest somewhere, but it’s actually in Upper West Side New York City! The duo married amongst family, friends, and tall trees at Fort Tryon Park, then followed up with a lively reception on the outdoor patio at the park’s New Leaf restaurant.  They splurged on excellent photography and their dream venue (smart choices in our book) and kept the rest of the wedding costs at a minimum by enlisting guests to help with everything from the desserts to the reception music. Special thanks to Levi Stolove for sharing these wonderfully airy photos with us!

Lindsay and Nick first bonded over early morning lesson planning at the school where they both worked—he taught math and she taught English. After years of dating, they married in the park right across the street from that school! “The ceremony went by very quickly, but felt sweet and personal,” remembers the bride. “We were lucky that the Linden trees [in the park] bloomed a bit early.”

{Part One} Rustic Island Glamour by This Love of Yours… Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

After knowing one another for nearly two decades and dating for about eight of those years, Hawaiian natives Rana and Jay tied the knot in San Francisco, incorporating tons of rustic island glamour into their day. Nearly half of their guests flew in from Hawaii- Rana and Jay were deeply honored that so many people made the trip. Undoubtedly, it was well worth it… we’re marveling at  all of the thoughtful detail that went into this day.  Not to mention, Rana and Jay’s incredible style… a little rustic, a little glam, a dash of edgy and a sprinkle of vintage.  Get ready to gush over these gorgeous photos by Erika and Michael of This Love of Yours…Photography.

The ceremony leis were utterly exquisite… just the right amount of Island flair.  And Rana’s gown by Enzoani? We’re gushing.  The invites, designed by anna.michelle Cards, set the tone for a day of rustic, vintage romance.

Such gorgeous florals by Chestnut & Vine, who worked with the couple to bring subtle Hawaiian elements into the décor. Each bridesmaid chose her own style of dress by Wtoo, in the perfect shade of soft grey.

Rana and Jay said ‘I do’ in front of an intimate group of seventy five loved ones.  The Fort Mason Parade Grounds were a scenic locale for the ceremony, surrounded by gorgeous trees, with a mix of urban city life and the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop.  The photo of them being showered with petals is so precious… love.

Part One: Eloping in Style
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Did you know that a couple can ‘marry themselves’ in Colorado?… as in, without an officiant.  How cool is that?  I actually really like the idea.  Vanessa and Atiq did just that– take a peak at part one of their adorable elopement and picnic in Denver, Colorado.   This cute wedding was photographed by Melissa of Fresh In Love Photography.

Would you and your love ‘marry yourselves?’ I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!

Stay tuned for part two tomorrow!
