 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 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.

Corinna and Zack were married at Oak Hill in Hudson, N.Y. on August 24. The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown with a ruffled floral petal skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a solid tie and Converse tennis shoes. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short blush dresses and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. Their gifts? Burlap clutches. Guests were directed to the ceremony, reception, and yes, restrooms with a wooden sign post and were encouraged to take a fan to beat the hot, hot heat. The ceremony took place along the river with an expansive view of the Catskill Mountains in the background. Cocktail hour began with “Moose Juice,” fresh pineapple soaked in vodka, and “Jungle Juice,” fruit punch, lemon-lime fizz, and raspberry vodka, and lawn games such as corn hole. The reception was held inside the barn lit with string lights and draped with fabric. Tables were decorated with burlap runners, mason jar and wine bottle centerpieces atop wooden slices, and utensils wrapped in twine. Family style dinner included grilled steak, salmon, bbq chicken, pulled pork, mac ‘n’ cheese, and fresh vegetables. Yum! Plus, a strawberry shortcake for dessert. Just wait until you see the newlyweds’ send-off! Z + C = pure bliss. See the full board here.

Tiffany and Michael were married at Barrier Island Sanctuary followed by reception at Ryckman Park in Melbourne, Fla. on November 16. ”I always wanted my wedding in a garden, and Mike always wanted to get married on the beach,” Tiffany said. “We compromised and had both!” The bride wore a v-neck lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a braided updo, while the groom wore a tan three-piece suit, accessorized with a white tie. Bridesmaids wore mint chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, hydrangeas, and berries. “Seafoam is my favorite color, so that was an easy choice,” she said. Tiffany walked down the aisle arm-in-arm with her dad as a rock and reggae band played. How cool is that? Following the nuptials, all 95 guests were seated underneath a tent. Tables were decorated with white linens, coral napkins, and gold charger plates. Notice the “Mint to Be” tins? Those served as fresh favors. The newlyweds performed their first dance to Lauryn Hill’s cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” but “our guests didn’t want to leave the dance floor at the end of the night!” Tiffany said. Good thing they didn’t miss out of the wish lantern send-off! See the full board here.
