Stacey + Steve: A Classic Violet Romance by Andres Valenzuela Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

The story behind this romantic New Jersey wedding is one for the books.  Steve proposed on Thanksgiving day, while the two were traveling in New Zealand. This was very appropriate for the pair, as they count their blessings every single day.  Steve was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and spent nearly an entire year recovering. Although it was an unfathomably hard year for the couple, it really cemented their relationship. Stacey says, ‘We have just always been so grateful for every good day since his illness.’ Now, the two live in Atlanta where he works for the Atlanta Braves and she works for the PGA Tour (they are both huge sports fans)! The wedding was a celebration of life, love, and gratitude for every day. Andres Valenzuela photographed the violet-hued affair; and we’re reveling in all of the beauty and bliss.

The couple wove plenty of personal touches into the classic event.  So many of the details were thoughtfully selected with a deeper connection in mind, starting with the venue.  As sports fans, and with Stacey being an employee of the PGA Tour, it was only fitting that the couple marry at a golf course, the Falkirk Estate and Country Club in Central Valley New York.  Stacey’s Dad has sold Jack Daniels for over 30 years, so the groomsmen were gifted custom bottles of Jack!  The signature drink of the evening was called  “LiveStrong Lemonade” as a nod to LiveStrong, which gave Steve a lot of support during his battle with cancer.

Lauren + Matthew: A Fun Fall Fête by Larsen’s Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Like purple and burlap? Then you’ll LOVE Matthew and Lauren’s vineyard wedding! This cheery celebration took place at the scenic Brutocao Cellars in Hopland, California, and we are absolutely smitten with the florals. From the bouquets to the centerpieces and back to the cake, the colorful combo of shades proves that fall wedding decor doesn’t have to be all moody reds and oranges. Thanks to Dandelion Floral for reminding us of that, and to Larsen’s Photography for sending over the pics!

How the couple met: Mutual friends invited Lauren to Matthew’s annual holiday party and the two quickly got to talking. After four years of dating, Mike surprised Lauren with a small box in Lake Tahoe. She originally thought it contained earrings, but once she realized he was proposing she made him get down on one knee in the middle of the street and ask for her hand the traditional way.
