Christina and Joe were married on the bride’s parents’ beach, with the reception following in their backyard in Traverse City, Mich. on June 27. The bride looked classic with a hint of vintage in an all-lace strapless fit ‘n flare gown accessorized with a jeweled belt and a birdcage veil. She wore her hair in a delicate updo and carried a bouquet of garden roses and lamb’s ear. Her ‘maids donned pale green short chiffon dresses with various necklines. The groom and his men opted for gray suits with matching ties. The couple tied the knot on the beach under a birch tree arch in front of just 40 guests who sat in wooden folding jars marked with floral mason jars. “We wanted to have a small, personal ceremony and reception with just a few close family and friends,” Joe said. An acoustic guitar player and violin player provided the music for the ceremony, as well as the reception, which followed under a tent. Guests dropped notes for the couple into a wish jar, played games such as cornhole and Jenga, and claimed their chalkboard tag escort cards which were clothespinned to a wired display board. “The weather for our wedding day was great – lots of sunshine,” Joe said. The reception featured a summer beverage station with iced tea and lemonade. Guests enjoyed a three tier white cake adorned with pink flowers along with an assortment of brightly-colored macaroons. The couple’s getaway transportation? A subaru decked out with “Just Married” bunting. “The night was capped by a send-off in which we walked out under the glow of sparklers held by our family and friends,” Joe said. What a magical exit!

Alexandra and Alejandro were married at Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake, Calif. on May 31. The bride donned a strapless fit ‘n flare lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and wore her hair in a delicate updo. Her best pals were outfitted in short pink and blue dresses with various necklines. They all carried bouquets with garden roses, hydrangeas, and peonies. The groom and his men looked dashing in gray three-piece suits. The groom differentiated himself from the colored vests and neckties by sporting white. “We did a first look before the ceremony, ” Alexandra said. “It was our favorite part of the day. We weren’t married yet, but looking back, it was our only few minutes of uninterrupted time to just be together.” The couple was married under two large trees by Alexandra’s uncle in front of 170 guests. “We wrote our ceremony and included a variety of cultural traditions, ranging from Spanish traditions from our families, to the Irish tradition of handfasting,” Alexandra said. A cocktail hour followed, and then guests moved inside to a dining room where they were greeted by chalkboard signs. Escort cards guided them to round tables with white linens, gold chiavari chairs, and bright floral centerpieces. Guests chose from a variety of full-service food stations (one of which included a luau-style pig), and enjoyed a beer garden with five varieties of craft beer. Alexandra was incredibly happy with the whole day. “While we didn’t know exactly what we wanted when we started planning, it ended up getting something absolutely classic and perfect for us.” See the full board here.

Kelsey and Carder were married at The Sheerar Museum of Stillwater History followed by a reception at Stillwater Community Center in Stillwater, Okla. on April 13. “Choosing to have our wedding in April in Oklahoma was a huge risk,” Kelsey said. “It’s known to pour in April, but it’s also known to be beautiful. I was so worried it was going to rain, and we would have to take all our pictures inside, but I woke up to the most beautiful day. It was sunny and 75 degrees. The weather was perfect, I couldn’t have asked for a better day.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with a pearl necklace and shoulder-length veil, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a feather boutonniere. Guests were greeted to the ceremony with a chalkboard sign and were asked to grab paper cones of confetti to throw during the recessional. The backdrop was vintage door panels! “I wanted my wedding to be very personal and intimate,” she said. “I visited my favorite shops in town and antique stores to get ideas. I loved the idea of hand making decorations.” Family photos were displayed on shutters, and items including a ribbon writer, telephone, and video camera decorated tables. The favors? CDs!

Martha + Gabriel: A Pastel Summer Iowa Park Wedding By Dust Studios
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Martha and Gabriel were married at Ledges State Park in Ames, Iowa last summer. They first met on a trip to China, where they became friends. “It wasn’t until we returned to the U.S. and worked out that friendship more that we both became interested in each other,” Gabriel said. “Once I finally figured that much out, I took her to coffee, and the rest was history! Ten months later we were married!” The bride wore a floral applique wedding gown with an illusion neckline and back, while the groom wore a white button-up, gray pants, and suspenders with an orange bow tie. “First objective was to keep the focus on Christ, and the true meaning of marriage,” he said. “Our secondary priorities were budget of course, and the fact that the wedding and most of the reception would take place outside. We simply had a general theme and color scheme, and really went with anything we liked!” Before the ceremony, a first look was captured by their photographer, who is also Gabriel’s sister! The ceremony itself included 200 guests! However, the reception was held in a shelter near a river following. “It provided an amazing summer sunset view throughout most of the evening,” Gabriel said. Their first dance? “The Lime Tree” by Trevor Hill. See the full board here.
