Brooke and Patrick were married at Union Mills Homestead in Westminster, Md. on August 23. The bride looked radiant in a lace and tulle A-line gown featuring a V-neckline and a beaded silk sash. She wore her hair in a low vintage-inspired updo and carried a clean white and green bouquet. Her ‘maids donned mix-and-match blush dresses from various stores, and her “brides-man” donned a tan vested suit with a blush bow tie. The groom and his men opted for light gray suits and blush neck ties. “We both knew that our budget wouldn’t allow for a lavish ballroom event, but that wasn’t what was reflective of us as a couple anyhow,” Brooke explained. “We truly wanted a small, romantic, ceremony followed by a night of celebrating.” The pair tied the knot in a garden on the grounds of the homestead in front of 125 family members and friends. “It ended up raining on our wedding day, pouring, actually. . .the rain made the entire day and evening so magical and mystical, it felt like a real-life fairytale,” Brooked said of the day. A reception followed in the barn, which was decorated with vintage decor elements they had found in antique shops. Gold frames, mugs, and vases were just some of the things that transformed the rustic barn into a vintage space. Guests looked to a repurposed window pane to find their seats, where they ate barbecue and macaroni and cheese off of mismatched china. String lights and glowing marquee letters illuminated the space as friends and family danced the night away. Guests enjoyed an array of cupcakes for dessert. The couple was sent off into their new life with a sparkler exit! Brooke advises couples to do what works for them on their big day. “When it comes to your day, try not to get too caught up in traditions. We encountered so many instances in which doing ‘what everyone else did’ just didn’t fit for our day,” she said. See the full board here.

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.
