Erin and Mathew were married at The Inn at Bay Harbor in Petoskey, Mich. on July 6. ”From the moment of the proposal in northern Michigan, we knew we wanted to have a destination wedding in this special place where we have vacationed with family, and as a couple for the past four years,” Erin said. The bride wore a strapless tea-length wedding gown with a floral appliques, accessorized with a birdcage veil and glitter peep-toe slingbacks, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a striped tie and Sperry Topsider boat shoes. Bridesmaids wore short satin dress in various necklines and carried bouquets of baby’s breath and dusty millers. “The ceremony was very intimate, as a great friend of ours officiated the wedding, and we were very involved in planning the entire ceremony,” she said. “I think our guests would agree with us that the best part was the ‘I love you because’ statements. Before the wedding, each of us wrote down the top 10 reasons why we loved the other, and gave it to our officiant. They were read aloud for the first time then.” In addition, there was a wine box and knot-tying too! Reception tables were decorated with navy blue linens, pink napkins, tall topiary and succulent birch slab centerpieces, and a custom favor box filled with a shot glass at each place setting. ”After our introduction,we had planned the dance from Napoleon Dynamite (‘Canned Heat’) to perform, however, since we had not rehearsed for the week leading up to the wedding, the routine was far from perfect,” Erin said. “Nevertheless, it is still one of my favorite memories.” See the full board here.

Lauren and Drew were married at the groom’s parents home along the Severn River in Annapolis, Md. last spring. ”We truly felt that our wedding day was not just a celebration of each other, but also for everyone who made us into the couple we are today,” Lauren said. The bride wore a v-neck mermaid wedding gown with a beaded bodice and tulle skirt, accessorized with a floral wreath in her sideswept ponytail, while the groom wore a navy blue suit, accessorized with a striped tie and pair of Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes. Bridesmaids wore short coral dresses in various fabrics and carried bouquets of hydrangeas. Believe it or not — Lauren arrived to the ceremony on a boat — and 220 guests were in attendance when the couple said their, “I do’s.” Afterwards, a bagpiper led the recessional into the tent. Tables were decorated with gray linens and tall floral centerpieces, signature spiked lemonade and watermelon mojito cocktails and seafood fare were served, and crab mallet favors were at each place setting. There even was fun, games, (and candy) for the kids! Notice the goodie bags? A long night of dancing with provided flip flops ended with a sparkler send off and safe travels to their African safari honeymoon. See the full board here.

Erica and Peter were married in Pamperin Park followed by a reception at Green Bay Country Club in Green Bay, Wis. on September 28. ”I immediately fell in love with the look of rustic elegance and went with it,” Erica said. “I love the natural look of wood and soft, muted colors, and I love the look of chandeliers, gold and lace as well.” The bride wore a sweetheart fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a navy blue suit, accessorized with a tie and pocket square. Bridesmaids wore short pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, succulents, and berries. Guests were greeted with a wooden sign that said, “Today, two families become one, so pick a seat not a side.” ”Two rustic doors, constructed by my dad, stood before the aisle for our guests to walk through and were closed prior to my dad and I walking down the aisle,” she said. “We could not have asked for a better day!” she said. “It was a warm fall day with temps in the low 70′s and the sun shinning high.” Following their unity sand ceremony, dinner and dancing began. Tables were decorated with tall branch centerpieces draped with crystals, mason jars dipped in glitter, and lanterns too. Notice how glasses featured “I’m here for the cake” stickers? Such a fun touch! ”Our dessert bar included a cake, six different flavors of cupcakes, the best apple pie in the world, cookies, and chocolate covered strawberries,” Erica said. To the newlyweds’ surprise, a fireworks display ended the night. See the full board here.

Posted by czentgraf. Filed under Real Weddings

Kristen and Ken were married at Congress Hall in Cape May, N.J. on October 12. Since the couple currently resides in New York City, they decided to have a mini-destination wedding at one of the nation’s best beach towns! The bride wore a sweetheart satin mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a classic updo and comb, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. Bridesmaids wore short navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of white dahlias, red roses, and purple thistles. Don’t you just love their J.Crew bow pumps? Since the handfasting ceremony was to take place on the historic hotel’s front porch, guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Snuggle Up” and asked to grab shawls to keep warm. After the newlyweds were announced husband and wife, the celebration began. Keeping with the seaside theme, escort cards were held in place with tiny pieces of coral, but reception tables were decorated with silver charger plates, napkins wrapped in striped ribbon, and lantern centerpieces that lit up the ballroom. Of course, the night ended with a picture picture moment of the four-tiered cake being cut. See the full board here.
