Heather and Bryant were married at Three Stallion Inn in Randolph, Vt. on June 14. Heather looked gorgeous in a strapless sweetheart asymmetrical mermaid gown accented with a crystal belt. She wore her hair in a curly partial updo, ditched the heels for cowgirl boots, and carried a bright bouquet of delphinium, millet, peonies, asters, gerber daisies, veronica, and hypericum berries. Her ‘maids donned short chiffon halter dresses, while the groom and his men looked dapper in gray three-piece suits complete with navy blue neck ties. The pair tied the knot outside under an arch made of branches, greenery, and white chiffon draping. Guests were greeted to the ceremony by wooden signs hand-painted by the bride’s father. A reception followed at the inn where the 130 guests sipped on lemonade and iced tea and dropped their well-wishes cards into a tin bucket accented with burlap. “Staff, friends, and family put together all of the decorations and the Inn looked more beautiful than I ever could have dreamed,” Heather said. Tables featured wildflowers in mason jars atop wood slices for a country feel. “My family, friends, and I made of the decorations and special touches to the wedding,” Heather explained. “It was lots of work but made the day even more beautiful and special.” Family and friends enjoyed dinner and dancing, followed by a four tier cake adorned with colorful flowers. Upon their departure, guests received maple syrup favors, a Vermont favorite. Heather encourages couples to keep their cool during wedding planning. “Stay calm and don’t stress,” she said. “The day will come together and it will be the best day of your life.” See the full board here.

Melissa and Todd were married at Cherry Creek Ranch in Young, Ariz. on April 26. Melissa looked radiant in a v-neck gown with a ruffled back and romantic bow. She wore her hair in a side swept curly ponytail and carried a bouquet of blush roses, succulents, and Queen Anne’s lace. The groom looked handsome in a tan three-piece suit with a mint tie and a feather boutonniere. The pair tied the knot in front of just 50 guests in a barn on Cherry Creek Ranch. “We decided to get married there after doing one of their cattle drives and eating some of the most delicious prime rib we’d ever had,” Melissa said. Guests sat in white folding chairs as the pair exchanged vows in front of a hay wall and a rustic arch made of antlers, gauze, and flowers. The ceremony featured an adorable ring bearer in a khaki suit and a flower girl in a pink tulle dress.  The newlyweds rode off into the sunset on horses after they’d tied the knot. “At first, I thought jumping on a horse was a crazy thing to do in a wedding dress,” Melissa said. “But we were getting married on a ranch in the middle of nowhere and riding off into the sunset is how you say ‘and they lived happily ever after’ in the wild west.”A reception followed at the lodge where guests sat at long banquet tables decorated with white linens, antlers, and boxed floral centerpieces. A game of “I Spy” was placed at each setting for friends and family to play during the reception. They feasted on stuffed chicken and prime rib for dinner, then danced to music from an Arizona country band. A mini-cake and cupcakes sat on a rustic tree slice display adorned with antlers and roses, which the guests enjoyed for dessert. Melissa has three simple rules for couples doing their wedding planning. “Don’t overdo it, don’t sweat the small stuff, and know when to hire a professional.” See the full board here.

Samantha and Michael were married at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee, Wis. on July 13. The bride looked radiant in a lace illusion sleeveless bateau gown accented with a jeweled belt. She wore her hair in an intricate updo and carried a bright bouquet complete with peonies, garden roses, dahlias, and succulents. Her best pals wore short chiffon gowns with varying necklines in assorted shades of pink.  The men looked dapper in their crisp gray suits and polka dot ties. The groom stood out by donning a black neck tie, while his men opted for gray. “We both love the outdoors and wanted our wedding to feel natural and rustic. That’s why we chose the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center,” Samantha said. “Its beautiful wooded surroundings reminded us of some of our favorite memories hiking together.” Guests were led down a wooded path lined with candles and rustic hand-painted signs to the ceremony site, which was right on Lake Michigan. The pair married in a traditional Jewish ceremony under a Chuppah made of birch, succulents, roses, and hanging terrariums. A cello and guitar duo played during the ceremony. A cocktail hour followed on a wrap-around porch with sweeping views of the lake. Guests sipped on signature cocktails, such as sparkling peach “Sam-gria.” Family and friends picked up their rose-painted escort cards and were guided to their seats at round tables. Each table featured embroidered linens and planter box centerpieces containing assorted flowers. Each place setting held a copy of the menu similar to the escort card stationery. Everyone enjoyed the dance floor, and spent most of the evening there. However, at the end, guests took a break to indulge in miniature pies and cupcakes. Samantha has some wise words for all the newlyweds-to-be out there. “Don’t be afraid to stray from tradition. After all, there’s no right or wrong way to have a wedding,” she said. “Your wedding should reflect your own values and personality.” See the full board here.
