Krisztina and Adam were married at Skyline Ranch in Groveland, Fla. on May 26. The bride wore a strapless gown with ruching and embellishment, and wore her hair in a curly side-swept ponytail adorned with orange and white flowers. The groom wore gray dress pants and a matching vest, ditching the jacket for a more casual look. Guests were greeted at the ceremony by a rustic welcome table, as well as a vintage gift table featuring a suitcase and decorative bunting. Instead of a traditional guest book, the couple asked guests to leave their fingerprint on a drawing of a tree. The path to the ceremony had wooden signs with quotes painted on them. The programs were kept in embroidered burlap covers, which were made by the bride and her sister. “The inspiration behind the wedding was a molding of Adam’s and my unique personalities,” Krisztina explained. “I had recently became interested in antiques. I loved finding old items and refurbishing them into something new. This carried over to my ideas for planning the wedding. While on the other hand my husband loves the forest/woods.” After tying the knot in front of 160 family members and friends, guests made their way to the reception. Games such as corn hole and checkers were available to play. Guests were escorted to their tables by plantable seed keys that the bride and maid-of-honor crafted themselves. The tables were decorated with burlap runners and floral glass jar centerpieces atop wood slices.  Krisztina and Adam’s wedding was a family project of sorts. “There was not a single item present that a family member did not help create,” Krisztina said. “It makes it more special that the whole family helped create the special day rather than buying all the decorations, clothes, etc.” The couple also offered a candy buffet to those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth. The bride and groom left their reception in the most romantic way, under a line of sparklers! Krisztina’s tip for couples planning their wedding? “Mold the wedding to create a way to show your guests that this day is about two unique people joining to become one.” What a great approach!

Amanda and Josh were married at Rancho Buena Vista Adobe in Vista, Calif. on March 28. “From the moment we walked through the gates, we had a great feeling about it,” Amanda said. “It had the ambiance we were looking for and we knew we wouldn’t have to do much more to create a gorgeous setting.” The bride wore a strapless fitted lace gown with casual wavy hair. She carried a pink and white bouquet made of peonies, roses, ranunculeses, hyacinthes, tulips, and freesias. Her ‘maids donned short muted pink dresses with white embroidery on the bodice. They carried bouquets of ranunculuses, roses, sweet peas, among other pretty blooms. Her groom and his men opted for tan dress pants and vests, and went without a tie for a more casual look. The two littlest attendants carried a burlap banner that read “Here comes the bride” before Amanda’s dad escorted her down the aisle to wed Josh in front of 175 friends and family members. The reception followed with a taco dinner and an iced bundt cake for dessert. Each table featured a DIY floral mason jar centerpiece with burlap and lace decor on top of a wooden slab. Amanda and Josh’s main priority was that everyone had a fabulous time. “I didn’t want to be stressing about everything being a particular color or wedding favors or fancy place settings,” Amanda noted. “What mattered is that everyone was able to get an invite, that we had good music, everyone was fed, and everyone was comfortable.” How sweet!

Logan and Percy were married at Paniolo Ranch in Boerne, Texas on November 9. The bride looked gorgeous in her fit ‘n flare sweetheart lace gown, topped off with an intricate updo and a birdcage veil. She carried a bouquet of lavender roses, green hydrangea, and calla lilies, paired with fiddlehead fern curls. Her ‘maids donned short deep purple dresses, a perfect fit for Fall. The groom and his groomsmen looked dapper in matching gray suits. Framed photos of the couple and family members, along with ceremony programs, were displayed on a wooden table near the ceremony location. Logan and Percy were married outside at dusk under a giant tree with gorgeous hanging lights giving off a very romantic aesthetic. “The weather was perfect,” Logan gushed. “It was nice and cool with the smallest breeze. Absolutely perfect weather for a wedding. I could hear the strings playing, I was so anxious to get down that aisle!” Afterwards, guests dined at round tables with deep purple accents, and sat in chivari chairs. Each table featured a centerpiece filled with green and purple blossoms and curly branches. Guests danced and socialized on the outdoor patio, which was all lit up with string lights. The five-tiered cake was a green hue and was adorned with cascading purple flowers. The happy couple was sent off into married life with sparklers from their guests. Logan’s wish for engaged couples? “RELAX! Its your special day, don’t stress. Get things done early enough rather than last minute,” she said. See the full board here.

Danielle + Brad: A Rustic Lavender And Sage Green Spring California Ranch Wedding By William Innes Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Danielle and Brad were married at Santa Margarita Ranch in Santa Margarita, Calif. on May 31. ”We wanted the wedding to be fun and unpretentious,” Danielle said. “We are both fairly casual and low maintenance people, so we didn’t want to go crazy over details, or kill each other.” The bride wore a strapless lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a lavender sash, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore short sage green chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of hydrangeas, sweet peas, and seeded eucalyptus. ”Whenever we go to weddings, we always sit through a long ceremony in the sun and think, ‘I wish I had a cocktail for this; I wish this was shorter.’ When we approached the wedding planning process, we decided to serve drinks beforehand and make the it short and sweet. We wanted to enjoy the time with our family and friends,” she said. Guests were also greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Today, two families become one. We ask that you please pick a seat and not a side.” Fun fact: Brad’s dad officiated the ceremony! Escort cards were attached to mason jars — a personalized favor combo. ”Since we were having the reception in a barn, we wanted to use rustic elements without making it feel like a hoedown,” Danielle said. Tables were decorated with wooden box centerpieces atop burlap runners, chalkboard numbers, charger plates, and menu cards at each place setting. ”I love horses and grew up riding horses competitively,” she said. “At the end of my sister’s speech, she brought out a mini horse named Dazzle that did tricks as our wedding gift. He was so cute, and it was such a surprise.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Brad Paisley’s “Then,” and cut into a three-tiered buttercream frosted cake afterwards (without smashing it in each other’s faces).
