Amy + Kenn: A Sweet St. John Wedding by Carina Skrobecki Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Consider this week’s real wedding a mini vacation you can take right at your desk! Amy and Kenn got hitched this past December in stunning St. John. They said ‘I do’ against a backdrop of clear blue water and lush island greenery, and we love the way they let the easy-going nature of the locale dictate a similar vibe for their nuptials. From Amy’s beachy updo to bridesmaids in mismatched dresses and sunnies, the details in this couple’s big day are sure to delight! Thanks to Carina Skrobecki for sharing the photos with us—you can see even more shots in the full gallery.

Tara + Harris: A Crafty Virginia Winery Wedding by Aaron Watson Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

From the Peruvian cookie favors to over 400 yards of ribbon bunting, you will not believe the amount of personal crafting time Tara, Harris, and family put into this cheerful Virginia wedding. The adorable couple (who met at a summertime “nerd school” between their junior and senior years of high school) enlisted nearly everyone they knew in creating the unique details of their special day, and the results are beyond impressive. Special thanks to Aaron Watson for sending these fun images over! We’re delighted to share the story.

The DIYing started with the ceremony. Harris’s father built, stained, and assembled the arch under which they exchanged vows. The moss initials were a surprise gift from the bride’s mother and aunt—the duo assembled them by covering paper maché letters purchased at a local craft store with moss mats. The ceremony fans (which depict the wedding party in cute cartoons) were designed by a family friend, printed at OfficeMax, and also assembled by the bride’s mother and aunt.

Liz + Josh: A Color-Infused Minnesota Wedding by Tiffany Bolk Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Today we have a special weekend treat for you. We’ve been saving this fun and colorful Minnesota wedding for a fun and colorful day, and Cinco de Mayo weekend seemed like just the ticket (especially because the couple’s first trip to Mexico had a big influence on their décor choices). From handmade paper flowers to a surprise dance performance, the personal touches in Liz and Josh’s special day absolutely blew us away. We love the way they turned their unique love story into a celebration of different cultures, and the fact that so many friends and family members helped with putting on the fête is a true testament to the DIY ethos. Thanks a million to the talented Tiffany Bolk for sharing these photos with us! We’re in awe of the vibrancy.

Liz and Josh got to know each other while working at a small Chinese restaurant in college. On slow nights, they’d pass the hours talking. “There is some question about whether our first ‘date’ was a date or not,” says the bride.  ”But we had so much fun together we just never stopped hanging out.” It was on a later trip to Mexico (their first big vacation) that the couple discovered they didn’t ever really get sick of one another. So Josh asked Liz to move in with him before they got back to the states.

Andra + Kevin: A Gold and Pink Church Wedding by Nadia D. Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

There’s no time quite like the beginning of May for a flowery wedding! Today we’re sharing a formal cherry blossom-inspired wedding from Atlanta, Georgia. Andra and Kevin worked with a palette of pear green, soft pink, and glittery gold to create their fun and feminine celebration. From the moss initials on the church door to the bride’s beautiful Badgley Mischka shoes, we are loving every detail! Thanks to Nadia D. Photography for sending along the photos.

Believe it or not, Andra and Kevin bonded over math—he was her calculus tutor in college! The duo moved to Atlanta after graduating from the University of Georgia, and decided to cement the new city as home by holding their ceremony at the Peachtree Road United Methodist Church. Their reception was at the Cherokee Town Club in Buckhead, and every beautiful glimmering detail was planned by the bride and her mother.  ”April in Atlanta means cherry blossoms,” says Andra, and the branches overflowed from every table (and the cake!). Touches of mercury glass and gold sparkle rounded out the elegant decor.
