Allie and Will were married at Hodge Podge Lodge in Montgomery, Texas on April 12. The bride looked gorgeous in a strapless lace fit ‘n flare gown. She wore her hair in a detailed updo and accessorized with a feather. She carried a romantic bouquet of roses, dusty miller, and hypericum berries. Her ‘maids were outfitted in peach pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and greenery. The men sported khaki suits and pink neck ties, with the groom standing out from the pack in a striped tie. Allie took the venue into account while planning her wedding. “The venue was called Hodge Podge Lodge so we wanted to go with the hodge podge theme,” she said.  The couple exchanged vows outside under ivory draping and an elegant chandelier as guests looked on in wooden folding chairs marked with baby’s breath. The ceremony featured a unity candle ceremony, honoring the union of their two families. After they sealed the deal with a kiss, guests enjoyed lawn games like cornhole and croquet. Guests were asked to sign a patch for a quilt that would be put together in the future. The centerpieces at each of the round tables were discovered by the bride’s mother at antique shops. Family and friends were given pink personalized koozies and flavored popcorn bags as favors. “I think all our guests really enjoyed the wedding and some even described it as the most personal wedding they had been to,” Allie said. Guests indulged in white ruffle cakes as well as an LSU groom’s cake for dessert. Overall, Allie was very pleased with the way the wedding turned out. “I think our wedding was a good representation of my husband and me.” See the full board here.

Krisztina + Adam: Orange and Blue Shabby Chic Rustic Ranch Wedding by Claire Pacelli Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos:  Claire Pacelli Photography; Venue: Skyline Ranch; Wedding Coordinator: Kristy Rapp Events; Bride’s Dress: Alfred Angelo; Hair and Makeup: Jennifer Albino at Beaute Speciale; Cake: Custom Cakes by Kim; Wedding Planner: Gloria Tokics (Bride’s Sister)

Krisztina and Adam were married at Skyline Ranch in Groveland, Fla. on May 26. The bride wore a strapless gown with ruching and embellishment, and wore her hair in a curly side-swept ponytail adorned with orange and white flowers. The groom wore gray dress pants and a matching vest, ditching the jacket for a more casual look. Guests were greeted at the ceremony by a rustic welcome table, as well as a vintage gift table featuring a suitcase and decorative bunting. Instead of a traditional guest book, the couple asked guests to leave their fingerprint on a drawing of a tree. The path to the ceremony had wooden signs with quotes painted on them. The programs were kept in embroidered burlap covers, which were made by the bride and her sister. “The inspiration behind the wedding was a molding of Adam’s and my unique personalities,” Krisztina explained. “I had recently became interested in antiques. I loved finding old items and refurbishing them into something new. This carried over to my ideas for planning the wedding. While on the other hand my husband loves the forest/woods.” After tying the knot in front of 160 family members and friends, guests made their way to the reception. Games such as corn hole and checkers were available to play. Guests were escorted to their tables by plantable seed keys that the bride and maid-of-honor crafted themselves. The tables were decorated with burlap runners and floral glass jar centerpieces atop wood slices.  Krisztina and Adam’s wedding was a family project of sorts. “There was not a single item present that a family member did not help create,” Krisztina said. “It makes it more special that the whole family helped create the special day rather than buying all the decorations, clothes, etc.” The couple also offered a candy buffet to those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth. The bride and groom left their reception in the most romantic way, under a line of sparklers! Krisztina’s tip for couples planning their wedding? “Mold the wedding to create a way to show your guests that this day is about two unique people joining to become one.” What a great approach!

Kelly + Shaun: A Shabby Chic Pink Spring South Carolina Plantation Wedding By Aaron Nicholas Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Aaron Nicholas PhotographyEvent Planner: Margaret McKenzie;Venue: Old Wide Awake PlantationDress Designer: Watters from April RoseGroom’s Attire: Jos. A.

 Kelly and Shaun were married at Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, S.C. on April 13. “With me being from Connecticut and Shaun being from Kentucky, we decided to get married in Charleston because that was where we met and lived throughout our entire relationship,” Kelly said. “It was also a good neutral location for both our families and many of our friends.” The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with statement earrings and bracelet, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath. “I knew that I wanted the quintessential Southern wedding,” she said. “I knew that I wanted blush, ivory, and gold. I knew I wanted sprawling lawns, wraparound porches, mason jars, a fire pit, and dancing under the stars. OWA was the perfect venue, and I don’t think I could have asked for anything more.” Guests were greeted with a wooden sign post that said, “1st kiss and 1st dance,” and encouraged to sit wherever they liked. “It was a perfect, sunny spring day at about 78 degrees,” Kelly said. “We could not have asked for a better day.” Cocktail hour began with spiked sweet tea made with Firefly Vodka, of course! Reception tables were decorated with white linens, mini glass vase and vessel centerpieces, and mercury glass votive candles. “If I had to name a few words that I had in mind while planning our wedding, I would say that romantic and Southern topped the list,” she said. “I would say that shabby chic, flowy, breezy, vintage, and rustic also played a part.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing,” and ended the night with a sparkler send-off. Then, it was off to Hawaii! See the full board here.

Arielle + Scott: A Vintage Picture-Themed Spring Virginia Historic Mansion Wedding By PW Photography

Arielle and Scott were married at Historic Mankin Mansion in Richmond, Va. on April 26. “Mankin Mansion is a beautiful wedding site that embodies old world charm,” Arielle said. “The trees and courtyard were lit with cast iron lanterns, and I invited my guests to enjoy the setting by renting vintage couches for lounging.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a keyhole back, accessorized with a floor-length veil, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Bridesmaids wore short chiffon dresses in dusty shale and graphite gray hues and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and Queen Anne’s lace. “The weather for our wedding was something out of a fairytale,” she said. “It was low 80s and mostly sunny. The grounds were covered in wisteria, a purple flowering vine that puts off such a calming scent that carried throughout the entire evening.” After the exchanging of vows and rings, the newlyweds recessed down the aisle as guests threw lavender. “I remember thinking how happy we were to be surrounded by all of the people, who have loved and supported us throughout the years,” Arielle said. The reception followed underneath a pole tent, low lit with crystal chandeliers. Tables were decorated with white linens, lace doilies, gold charger plates, vintage teacups, and mix ‘n’ matched vase and vessel centerpieces. “I spent my days off visiting thrift shops buying mismatched china, silver antiques, and unique glass vases,” she said. “I became enamored by all of the stories behind each item we collected.” There was also a display of family photos too! “We felt that it was important to blend the past with our future because it gave us a sense of pride for the families we came from,” Arielle said. They performed their first dance to “Cruisin'” by D’Angelo, posed in the photo booth with fun props, cut a five-tiered fondant cake, and exited at the end of the night amongst a sea of sparklers.
