Heather and Joey were married at The Atrium in Prospect, PA on May 24. “The Atrium was the perfect fit,” Heather said. “It was bright white, which we knew would make our colors pop, and the all glass atrium that was part of the building really brought in the outdoor feel.” The bride donned a strapless mermaid gown with a ruffled skirt and colored snakeskin peep toe pumps. She opted for a curly up-do and carried a bouquet with baby’s breath, garden and spray roses, carnations, and pin cushion proteas. The groom and his men looked dashing in gray three-piece suits. The groom wore an orange vest and necktie, while his men were outfitted in white. The bridesmaids stood out in bright turquoise one-shoulder floor-length chiffon gowns. “We built everything around our favorite colors – blue and orange,” Heather said. “The blue evolved into turquoise when we decided to go for a ‘tropical’ feel but without the sand and shells. We LOVE the Caribbean, so it was only fitting to incorporate that color scheme into our day.” After the reception, guests dined in an all-glass Atrium, allowing a lot of natural light to flow in. They outfitted the gazebo with blue and orange paper decor and had a photo booth with props for guests to document their night. Guests enjoyed a three-tiered cake decorated with blue and orange flowers, and munched on popcorn as well! The most special part of the big day? “My grandma wasn’t able to attend due to her health, so we actually FaceTimed the wedding so she could be a part of the big day,” Heather said. ” It was a great moment, and we’re so blessed that technology allowed her to be there.” How adorable?

Portia and Desmond were married at Valley Green Inn in Philadelphia, Penn. on April 13. They first met while attending Loyola University in New Orleans. “After a couple of years of dating and too many years of distance, we moved in together in Philadelphia where Des was in medical school,” Portia said. “We decided to get married in the City of Love because it is were we got engaged,” she said. “By our favorite mural . . . that reads, ‘If you were here, I’d be home now.'” The bride wore an antique-colored lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept loose curls updo and birdcage veil, while Desmond wore a navy blue suit, brown bow tie, and his glasses. Plus, a traditional Hawaiian lei around his collar! Following the outdoor nuptials, guests were asked to type out their well wishes and advice. The tech-savvy tips: “Don’t be shy! You have to punch the letters with some force. (Not an Iphone.)” The reception tables were decorated with mercury glass vases, which were collected over a year before the wedding, and “gorgeous flowers and family pictures and old family relics (like maps and paitnings) completed our country chic-inspired look,” she said. Their first dance song? “We both have a mutual love for Michael Jackson music,” Portia said. “And he put ‘Lady in my Life’ on his first mixtape he made for me during our courtship, so it was a no brainer.” See the full board here.

Gina and Jonathan were married at J.Verno Studios in Pittsburgh, Penn. on September 13. “We wanted a very modern wedding that cut out traditions to make room for our personalities,” Gina said. “We created a high-energy atmosphere from start to finish which also made the planning stress-free.” The bride wore a ruched fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls with a headband, while the groom wore a light gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Guests were greeted with the couple’s name projected on an all-white wall. “I walked down the aisle to one of my favorite electronic songs,” she said. “Jon met me halfway and escorted me the rest of the way.” They even wrote their own vows! The reception was lit with crystal chandeliers, tables were decorated with gray linens and yellow hydrangea centerpieces, and “He” and “She” signs were displayed, where each one wrote what they loved about another. For entertainment, the “shoe game” was played, and during the first dance, the bridal party joined the newlyweds on the dance floor and put on glow-in-the-dark, flashing glasses. How fun!

Ashley + Doug: A Surprise Pennsylvania Winter Garage Wedding By Simply Couture Photography

Ashley and Doug decided to do something a bit non-traditional — a surprise wedding! Family and friends assumed they were getting married at the courthouse with no reception, but little did they know it would take place at the bride’s uncle’s garage in Pittsburgh, Penn a few days before New Year’s Eve. The bride wore an illusion back wedding gown, accessorized with a faux fur coat and floral statement necklace, while the groom wore a gray vest and pants, black button-up, and hat. “When I walked in the door in my wedding gown with my dad, everyone just gasped and started clapping,” Ashley said. “It was an amazing moment.”  During the ceremony, the couple placed a bottle of wine and sealed love notes to each other inside a wooden box to be opened on their fifth anniversary. Reception tables were decorated with handmade details such as ornaments. As a thank you, lottery tickets were placed at each setting. The “shoe game” was played too. “It was fun to give them something to do and also to learn at little more about us,” she said. See the full board here.
