Jodi and Michael were married at The Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach, Va. on October 4. The bride looked stunning in a chiffon gown complete with a bejeweled illusion neckline. She wore her hair in a low curly bun and accessorized with a crystal headband. She carried a bouquet of  ivory and pink roses and white hydrangeas. Her ‘maids donned various blush chiffon dresses. The groom looked handsome in a classic black tuxedo and a white rose, hydrangea, and feather boutonniere. “Being that we got married in early October, we were super lucky to have one of the last warm days of the season,” Jodi said of their wedding day. The couple tied the knot overlooking the water in front of just 80 guests. They sat in white folding chairs and looked on as Jodi and Michael exchanged vows in front of a white altar adorned with flowers and tulle. The aisle was marked with ribbon-clad mason jars filled with white and pink floral arrangements. “The view of the water served as a lovely backdrop for our ceremony as well as our reception,” Jodi said. At the reception, guests sat at round tables with white and burlap linens. “A lot of the items in the wedding were repurposed. The votives holding the ivy were once candles that burned in our home over the course of our engagement,” Jodi said of the reception decor. The decorated champagne bottles and mason jars, among other items, were recycled from previous wedding-related events. As favors, guests were given the couple’s favorite candies including Twix and Gummie Bears. The wedding cake was a three-tier white cake adorned with sugar pearls. Jodi advises couples to keep things in perspective while planning. “At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is you and your partner giving your promise to love each other forever.” See the full board here.

Madhumati and Jared were married at the Adaland Mansion in Philippi, W.V. on June 15. The bride donned a fitted all-lace strapless gown with a jeweled neckline. Her locks were in a curled partial updo and she carried a romantic bouquet of  pink peonies, roses, and alstromeria. Her ‘maids stood by her side in short blush chiffon dresses with illusion bateau necklines. The groom and his men looked dapper in light gray vested suits and accessorized with boutonnieres featuring ivory and blush roses, alstromeria, burlap, and greenery. “We wanted our wedding to be a big party,” Madhumati said. “So we kept everything really informal and easy. We wanted to have an outdoor wedding amongst the mountains of West Virginia.” The ceremony took place outside in front of a sprawling white trellis and 100 of their closest friends and family members. Tin cans doubled as vases holding baby’s breath flower arrangements as aisle markers. After vows were exchanged, a reception followed at the same location. Guests dropped off their cards in a chic box adorned with a black and pink banner, burlap, lace and pink flowers. Floral wreaths made of ivy, daisies, and wildflowers hung from the ceiling rafters and the couple enjoyed a sweetheart table with white iron chairs. ” Almost everything we did for the wedding was DIY with our families and friends help,” Madhumati said of the decor. “We kept everything organic and whimsical!” Guests were greeted at their seats by creative place mats that featured fun games to play. The bride and her ‘maids arranged a traditional Bollywood dance as a gift for her husband. Guests had dinner and enjoyed a two-tier buttercream cake adorned with flowers and a heart topper. Then they all danced the night away! Madhumati encourages couples to keep things in perspective while planning. ” Remember what is important to you! Your marrying the love of your life!” See the full board here.

Linda and Mike were married at St. Vincent de Paul Church, followed by a reception at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago, Ill. on May 24. The bride looked flawless in a ruffled mermaid gown with a ruched bodice and a soft wavy ‘do. She carried a clean bouquet of white peonies and her ‘maids donned blush strapless chiffon gowns. They carried bouquets featuring  ivory roses, hypericum berries, dusty miller, and eucalyptus. The groom and his men donned classic black tuxedos. The couple’s love for the city of Chicago was their wedding day inspiration. “We both love Chicago so much…so we wanted it to be a very romantic Chicago theme. We let the traditional and classic colors, feel do all the work,” Linda explained. The pair exchanged vows in front of 200 family members and friends in a traditional ceremony. Afterwards, cocktail hour followed on the terrace at the Hyatt Regency. The couple then made a grand entrance into the ballroom where they were presented as husband and wife, right as the curtains rose up and the city lights flooded in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Their welcome table featured family wedding photos, a small wooden box for letters and cards, and mercury glass votive candles. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and gold chiavari chairs. Each table featured a tall green and white floral centerpiece and Chicago-themed table numbers, which were named for iconic city spots. The guests enjoyed the dinner and the band, and ended the night indulging in a classic buttercream cake with a sparkly monogrammed topper. Linda advises couples to prepare for the unexpected, but not to let it worry you. “Don’t stress beforehand about every detail that can go wrong. Something will go wrong,” she said. “And you won’t notice it. Remember the day is about you and your groom and that is all that matters.” See the full board here.
