Nicole and Derrell were married at Secrets Aura Cozumel in Cozumel, Mexico on June 28. The bride looked stunning in a ruffled mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline and a jeweled sash. She donned her hair in a low chignon bun and carried a bouquet of red long-stemmed roses. Her ‘maids opted for various red lace dresses while the groom and his men looked dapper in gray suits with black bow ties. “Mexico is known for its beautiful and bright pops of colors, so I thought it would be a great complement for the wedding to use the color red which reminded me of Mexico,” Nicole said of her wedding inspiration. The 40 guests gathered on the pier for the intimate evening ceremony. After they officially tied the knot, a nighttime reception was held on the beach under palm trees and a gorgeous chandelier. Guests sat at a long banquet table with glass cylinder centerpieces filled with red roses. “I always loved the color white at big events because its very timeless and classic,” Nicole said of the red color scheme. “I wanted to try to keep everything as ‘clean’ as possible but adding pops of color here and there as ode to Mexico really worked.” Guests were given Mexico-inspired favors, which included bottles of tequila and mini maracas! Guests enjoyed a simple two-tier cake adorned with red roses for dessert. Nicole recommends a destination wedding for couples in the planning process! “Having a destination wedding was super fun and I believe it was less stress than a local wedding,” Nicole said.

Laura and Danny were married in Leu Gardens, followed by a reception at Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant in Orlanda, Fla. on October 11. The bride looked lovely in a fitted lace gown with a keyhole back. She wore her hair in a twisted low updo accessorized with a pearl pin and she donned red lipstick for the occasion. She carried a bouquet of red and white roses, pink cymbidium orchids, and snapdragons. Her sister wore a ruffled red floor-length gown as her bridesmaid.  Her groom and his best man wore black tuxedos, Danny opted for a light blue bow tie while his best man wore red. The ceremony featured Laura’s 7-year-old daughter as the flower girl in a white dress with a red sash. A harpist played Canon in D as Laura walked down the aisle with her father. Only family attended the ceremony. “It was a warm sunny day in October, the guests were given parasols during the ceremony which looked beautiful in the pictures,” Laura said. After becoming husband and wife, the newlyweds held the reception at a local Spanish tapas restaurant where friends joined the celebration. During the cocktail hour a Spanish guitarist played. The round tables featured romantic centerpieces of roses and votive candles. “I tried to keep my wedding as simple as possible,” Laura said. “The less you have going on – the less you have to worry about, and the more you can enjoy your day!” Guests enjoyed traditional Spanish cuisine such as paella among other delicious items. The dessert was a three-tier cake adorned with red roses, as well as a candy bar which guests could load up on for the ride home. We recommend taking Laura’s realistic advice! “No matter how much planning you do, something will not go the way you expected. My advice is to realize that now, so that you will be mentally prepared and not let it ruin your day.” See the full board here.

Elizabeth and Timmy were married at Historic Malbis Plantation in Daphne, Ala. on November 30. “As a wedding photographer for the past three years, I wanted something unique and different, something I had never seen before in person,” Elizabeth said. “I had a little help from Pinterest and Etsy, and it took many hours slaving over DIY projects and many sleepless nights getting it all done, but I could have not asked for a better wedding once I saw everything together.” The bride wore a ruffled one-shoulder satin a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept braided updo and chunky, chandelier earrings, while the groom wore a dark gray vest and pants, accessorized with solid ties and Converse tennis shoes. She carried a bouquet of Before the ceremony, the couple exchanged love letters and gifts. Elizabeth wrote on a brown paper bag, “Timmy, I have loved you for 824 days but today will be the best day ever. Love, your fiance.” “The weather was perfect,” she said. “I was so nervous it would be way too cold or rainy, and it was 69-70 degrees and sunny.” Fun fact: It took place during the Iron Bowl. “We walked back up the aisle to the Alabama fight song, since Timmy and the groomsmen are huge football fans,” Elizabeth said. Guests were encouraged to update their statuses, tweets, or Instagram photos with the hashtag #goldmanwedding. The signature cocktail? Mountain dew! “I knew that a wide array of florals would make a gorgeous setup surrounded by mason jars and bottles of different sizes and candles galore,” she said. “It was truly beautiful! I incorporated a ton of cameras I found either on Ebay or local antique stores to showcase my love for photography.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me,” and then sat down at a sweetheart table with a fabric streamers backdrop and crystal chandelier from above. The three-tiered buttercream frosted cake was topped with a bunting banner with hearts and in addition, there was groom’s cake featuring Big ‘Al. See the full board here.

Antonieta + Shawn: A Vibrant Travel-Themed Fall Rhode Island Farm Wedding By Nelly – Photographer
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Antonieta and Shawn were married at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island on October 19. “”We wanted our wedding to reflect us as a couple with some urban influences, some country influences, some southern influences, some international influences and some New England influences,” Antonieta said. “We both have roots in North Carolina, I grew up in Ecuador and we have both traveled extensively.” The bride wore a sweetheart chiffon wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom wore a three-piece black suit, accessorized with a bow tie. “My dress was by Lindee Daniel, who is a designer from Los Angeles, that works with natural materials that are sustainably produced and responsibly sourced,” she said. “She gives back part of her profits to youth-at-risk in her area.” Bridesmaids wore long brown halter chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of calla lilies, roses, and berries. Guests were greeted with a basket of shawls to keep warm during the outdoor ceremony. The couple wed before 100 with a hand fast. “It feels very rewarding to make the event your own,” Antonieta said. “Even though it is a lot of work to plan out details, I can´t imagine have done it any other way.” The signature drink? Hot apple cider, of course! Escort cards were shaped like luggage tags and directed them to tables named after cities. Reception tables inside the barn were decorated with red, orange, and yellow napkins, lanterns atop wood slices, and “hot” honey favor jars at each place setting. “Since nearly every guest came in from out of town, we wanted to extend the festivities and have plenty of opportunities to spend time with friends and family,” she said. “We had a relaxed after party at The Dorrance, in downtown Providence, and we went apple picking the next day. We then left for our honeymoon in Bora Bora.” See the full board here.
