Courtney and Brendon were married at The Pavilions at the Angus Barn in Raleigh, N.C. on September 7. “I grew up riding horses so it was no surprise when I found myself drawn to the idea of a barn wedding,” Courtney said. “However, I really wanted to soften the aesthetic and distance myself from the more common ‘rustic’ wedding look.” The bride wore a lace off-the-shoulder a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a floor-length veil, while the groom wore a gray tweet suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short dresses with various necklines and carried bouquets of hydrangeas and baby’s breath. “My bouquet had a hidden secret thanks to my florist Marsha,” she said. “My dog Pubby had passed away a few months before the wedding unexpectedly. I quite sad about not having him around for my big day. She tucked his collar inside the stems of my bouquet and accented the wrap with the Helen Ficalora charms I wear to remember him.” The outdoor ceremony, overlooking the pond, took place at sunset per the request of Courtney’s father. “He wanted to walk me down the aisle right when the sun set,” Courtney said. “He even looked it up down to the minute, which I thought was really sweet.” After the vows were sealed with a kiss, it was time for dinner and dancing underneath the pavilion. Tables were decorated with vintage vases and vessels centerpieces, pillar candles atop candelabras, and wood slices. “There is this one scene from Downton Abbey that I have always loved – they were outdoors having a garden party in late spring/early summer,” she said. “That visual reimagined as more of an early fall soiree allowed my quirky and slightly more whimsical personal style to complement the venue perfectly.” In addition to a three-tiered cake, late-night snacks also served double-duty as favors, including push-pops, peanuts, sliders, and Coca Cola. Yum! See the full board here.

Amanda and Alex were married at Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis, Minn. last summer. The couple first met while attending the University of Northwestern St. Paul. “Throughout the next couple months, we got to know each other and he asked me to be his girlfriend – in the parking lot of Walmart!” Amanda said. “A year later, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.” The bride wore a lace sweetheart fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of silver crystal studded platform pumps, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a white tie. Bridesmaids wore short pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses and dusty millers, but groomsmen wore light gray suits, accessorized with pink ties. “It drizzled a little bit in the morning into early afternoon,” she said. “I had always hoped it would rain in the morning of my wedding day.” Guests were greeted with a welcome table filled with motif ceremony programs and a chalkboard sign that encouraged them to hashtag their photos with #moewedding. The backdrop for the ceremony? A wooden cross. The newlyweds walked back down the aisle as husband and wife to “Something Beautiful” by NEEDTOBREATHE, and we’re off to the reception decorated with vintage vases and vessels centerpieces atop wooden slices. Plus, for entertainment, there was a photo booth! See the full board here.

Carey + Alex: A Rustic Summer Pennsylvania Pavilion Wedding By 52Forty Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Carey and Alex wanted a garden party with a bit of a vintage vibe at the John James Audubon Center. Carey wore an Allure lace wedding gown and her hair in a sideswept chignon whereas Alex wore a gray suit and preppy bow tie. The eco-friendly bridal bouquet featured roses and lots of greenery! Inside the barn, all 114 guests were asked “to pick a seat not a side” as two families are becoming one for the early evening ceremony. “The light pouring into the windows was soft and magical,” Carey said. Guests were directed to cocktail hour via a wooden sign post and enjoyed old country folklore tunes and lawn games on the lawn. His and her cocktails were served in mason jars. Carey’s consisted of lemonade and vodka, and Alex’s consisted of lemonade and bourbon. The reception was held in an open-air pavilion, which was illuminated by paper lanterns, and “each table had a book with a different question on the front cover for guests to answer, share advice, or send well wishes,” she said. The favors were homemade to suit the season. Carey and Alex jarred pickled vegetables and raspberry/blackberry jam. See the full board here.
