Mackenzie and Tyler were married at River Park Center in Owensboro, Ky. on May 25. The bride looked radiant in a strapless sweetheart bodice and ruffled mermaid skirt. Her long hair was down and wavy as she carried a bouquet of pink peonies and ivory roses. Her ‘maids donned short silver sequin dresses, which were a direct reflection of the bride’s inspiration. “Our wedding was inspired by the ritzy Gatsby parties mixed with my love for sequin, sparkle glam!” Mackenzie said. The groom wore a classic black tuxedo, while his men wore tuxedo vests to compliment his attire. The 210 guests sat outside by the river in silver chiavari chairs in a semi-circle around a gauze-draped structure adorned with ivory roses and a crystal chandelier, where the couple exchanged vows. The ceremony featured a little flower girl dressed in a mint ruffled dress and a young ring bearer carrying a silver sequin pillow. How adorable? A reception followed, where guests sat at round tables featuring tall hydrangea centerpieces. There was also an outdoor lounge with white sofas and a checkered dance floor. Guests received blue sparkly edible favors with their escort cards. “We wanted people to remember every aspect of the wedding from the love to the party,” Mackenzie said. After dinner the guests indulged in an glamorous three-tier cake. The bottom was a rosette tier, followed by a silver tier, and finally a fondant one. Talk about being too pretty to eat!  Mackenzie’s best advice? “If you want something- go for it! Don’t let anyone hold you back from your creativity early on.” See the full board here.

Natalie and Brian were married along the Chester River at a private farm estate in Queenstown, Md. last October. “Our mothers were in a ‘mothers group’ when they were pregnant with both of us,” Natalie said. “So, we have literally known each other our whole lives. We were childhood friends and began dating our junior year of high school.” These sweethearts knew they wanted a classic yet elegant wedding full of rustic details. Almost everything was DIY, from the wooden signage and paper leaf escort cards to the pumpkin centerpieces and homemade caramel popcorn favors in brown bags. “It was a gorgeous fall day – better than I could have imagined,” she said. “All the trees in the backyard were a warm golden yellow color. It started to cloud up after the ceremony, but it never really start to rain, which was great!” Since the couple didn’t do a first look, they decided to take portraits following the ceremony. Natalie was glowing in her lace wedding gown, accessorized with a curly side updo, while Brian looked dapper in his tan suit, accessorized with suspenders and a bow tie. Their golden retriever puppy even made an appearance in a few photos too! The night ended with a sparkler send off and the newlyweds cruising off in a vintage car. See the full board here.
