Kacie and Daniel were married at Cedar Bend Events in Austin, Tx. on November 23. The bride opted for a more rustic bridal look, donning a chiffon halter gown and soft wavy hair. She carried a bright bouquet of dahlias, peonies, veronica, tulips, and ferns.The groom wore a vested gray suit with a green neck tie. The ceremony took place outside in front of a barnwood backdrop, and guests sat and looked on in white folding chairs featuring wildflower aisle markers. The altar featured a vintage hanging window and picnic table draped in lace. “We knew we wanted to have the ceremony outside in a beautiful setting, and our main priority was keeping things comfortable and having a lot of fun!” Kacie said of the venue. A reception followed where guests signed a guest book located on a table decorated with framed quotes, books, a vintage watering can, and candles. “Our wedding was primarily a way to have a great time with friends and family,” Kacie said of the occasion. Aside from dancing, guests participated in lawn games such as croquet, hula hoops, and sack races. Tables were covered in gold chevron linens and centerpieces of roses, stock, veronica, and baby’s breath arranged in glass jars and displayed atop tree slices. “We always referred to our wedding, as the ‘Big Day,’ allowing us to focus on the celebration,” Kacie said. Guests enjoyed dinner and indulged in a variety of desserts including a naked cake, lemon rosemary shortbread cookies, and brownie bites! Kacie’s best advice? “Put great thought into your guest list, so that you can spend time with every loved one on your big day.” See the full board here.

Tara and Nathan were married at Blue Ridge Vineyard in Eagle Rock, VA on November 2. Tara looked stunning in an A-line flowy chiffon gown complete with a lace shawl and her soft wavy hair parted to one side. She carried a fall bouquet of hypericum berries, roses, and wildflowers, tied with plum-colored ribbon and lace. Her ‘maids opted for mix-and-match plum dresses, while the groom and his men wore black suits complete with festive fall ties. The pair exchanged vows in front of just 80 friends and family members under a pergola on the vineyard lawn on a beautiful fall day. “Our long-time family friends own Blue Ridge Vineyard and we were lucky to have [our wedding] there – it was a stunning backdrop,” Tara said of the venue. A rustic-inspired reception followed on the patio, where guests sat at wooden tables covered in tan linens and accented with gold plates and plum napkins. Each table featured a mason jar centerpiece containing tree branches and bird seed favors. “Rustic, natural, low key,” Tara said about the event. “We wanted it to be about the people we love. A good crowd makes for a good event.” Dessert consisted of cannolis, homemade by the bride’s grandmother and aunt, which was nod to the bride’s heritage. Guests danced the night away and had a memorable evening. Tara was extremely grateful or her friends and family. “This entire event could not have happened without the help of friends and family. That’s also what made it so special for Nate and I.” See the full board here.

She carried a bouquet of ranunculus, peonies, calla lilies, hydrangeas, and dusty miller. Her ‘maids donned navy floor-length chiffon gowns with mis-matched necklines. The groom looked handsome in a charcoal suit with a white neck tie. The couple tied the knot in front of 100 guests on the winery grounds. Family members and friends were greeted by a gold-framed chalkboard instructing them to pick a seat not a side, as well as a picnic basket of ceremony programs. Guests looked on from pews as the pair exchanged vows and shared their first kiss as husband and wife. “The weather was perfect! The sun was shining, all of our family and friends had made the trip for the special day,”  Elizabeth. The reception took place at the vineyard, where guests ate, danced, and drank the night away! They were even given glow sticks to add a fun element to the dance floor. “It was an emotional lovely day,” Elizabeth said. Family members and friends were given salt water taffy favors on their way out.  Elizabeth’s best advice? “Let the professionals take the reigns. This day is about you marrying the love of your life, so let other people worry.” See the full board here.

Amber and Matt were married at Gloria Ferrer Winery and Caves in Sonoma, Calif. on July 12. Amber looked flawless in a lace fit-and-flare gown with a blush underlay. Her hair was down and curly and she carried a soft bouquet of pink roses and cafe au lait dahlias. Her ‘maids looked radiant in blush floor-length chiffon gowns with varying necklines. The groom and his men looked dapper in tan suits with pastel neck ties. ” The natural beauty of the winery and venue really speaks for itself and I didn’t want to take away from that,” Amber said of the location. The pair tied the knot in front of just 90 guests, who were greeted by a wine barrel bar featuring a variety of teas and lemonade for guests to sip on. Two wine barrels adorned with bright, fluffy glowers served as ceremony decor. A cocktail hour followed in the tasting room. “The winery has a rustic vibe to it so we wanted to play off the natural beauty and tone of the venue,” Amber said of her decor inspiration. Guests found their seats listed on a repurposed window pane. A wine cave was converted into the reception dinner location with uplighting, a project damask pattern on the ceiling, and round tables with wooden folding chairs. Each place setting consisted of gold plates, purple napkins, and printed paper thank-you cards. “Every element was very thought out and personal,” Amber said. Following the dinner, guests moved back upstairs to the tasting room where they danced the night away and enjoyed mini desserts. Amber advises couples to keep things in perspective while planning their wedding. “The small things that will inevitably go wrong are really not that important in the grand scheme of things.” See the full board here.
