Madeleine and Andy were married at Patowmack Farm in Lovettsville, Va. on October 12. The bride looked flawless in a sweetheart mermaid lace and tulle dress. She accessorized with a blush satin sash and delicate drop earrings. Under her veil she wore a tightly-styled updo. The bride held a bouquet of lavender and white roses, accented with dusty miller. The groom and his men looked dapper in gray tuxedos and matched the bridal party by adding a lavender neck tie. Madeleine’s closest pals stunned in lavender chiffon halter dresses and carried stock and rose bouquets.  ”As Andy and I were about to say our vows, it began to rain again and I was thinking—oh no—but in conversations after the wedding, our guests said the rain during our vows was so romantic because it brought a mist and fog around us,” Madeleine said. The 100 guests tossed lavender seeds at the couple during the recessional. The reception followed in a tented area where lights were strung overhead for a romantic feel. The guests were then greeted by lavender sprig escort cards, where they were brought to round tables with white linens and floral centerpieces. “We are both “foodies” and wanted our wedding to be an all around great party with good music, good wine and craft beer, and most importantly, good, local and sustainable food,” Madeleine said. With that, the guests enjoyed everything from butternut squash soup shooters to salmon tartare. After dinner guests dug into a spread of apple, pumpkin, and paw paw pies. Needless to say- they got fed! Madeleine’s advice to brides-to-be? “Take a step back as many times as you can on your wedding day to just soak it all in.” See the full board here.

Angel and Jerry were married at the bride’s parent’s home in Fennimore, Wis. on June 22. ”The inspiration for the wedding actually came a lot from Pinterest,” Angel said. “I chose a pastel color scheme of pinks, whites, creams, and a little bit of greens and purples.” The bride wore a blush dropped waist wedding gown with a beaded bodice, accessorized with no shoes in lieu for henna, while the groom wore a pale blue button-up shirt, gray pants, suspenders, and a skull bow tie. Bridesmaids wore white long chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. Guests were directed to the backyard ceremony with a wooden arrow sign post and greeted with a chalkboard sign that encouraged to pick a seat not a side. ”OH MY! It was beautiful, the sun was out, the birds were chirping, and both the best man and maid of honor forgot the rings,” she said. “Thankfully, we didn’t have to go far.” To symbolize their unity, the couple chose to do a handfast in front of a paper crane altar arrangement. ”Afterwards, we had enough time to snap a couple of photos before one of the biggest rain storms of the year hit,” Angel said. The tented reception was decorated with lace balloons and cafe string lights from the ceiling, but the tables were decorated with white linens, vintage china, and tree stump centerpieces that featured pillar candles. Our favorite detail? The ice cream bar with all the toppings! 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.

Alicia + John: A Rainy Day Brunch Ohio Garden Wedding By Laura Elaine Photography

Alicia and John were married at Ault Park Rose followed by a brunch reception at the Carnegie Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. ”Our approach to our wedding was to make it as simple as possible, and as much of us as possible,” Alicia said. “John and I have always enjoyed throwing Sunday brunch get-togethers so that seemed like the way to go.” The bride walked down the aisle to a guitar and cello duo performing “Here, There, Everywhere.” Fun fact: it’s the same song her mother walked down the aisle to! During the ceremony, an Irish blessing was given by the officiant. Fun fact: it’s the same blessing the groom’s parents used at their wedding! Fortunately, the rain held off for a while, but there were some showers during the outdoor portraits. No worries – the wedding party just grabbed some umbrellas and smiled through it. After all, it’s good luck! The reception featured a mimosa bar with three different juices, and buffet with bacon, strata, biscuits, and gravy and fruit. ”I love that the china I use for company is literally our wedding china and was used on our wedding day,” she said. “To me, that means more than receiving a full set as gifts.” See the full board here.
