Tanya + Mark: A Summer California Vineyard Wedding By Josh Goodman Photography

Tanya and Mark were married on Friday the 13th of July, 2013 at Malibu Family Wines in California. “The weather was fantastic, and the air was clear that day,” Tanya said. “The grape vines were lush with green and ripening grapes, so the scenery was quite breathtaking.” She wore a Pronovias lace mermaid wedding gown and carried a bouquet of white lithiansus and purple stock she made herself. After they recited their own vows and moved the guests to tears, what did they do? — play a game of badminton! “For our first date, we agreed to meet at a park to play badminton,” Tanya said. “The plans were  later changed to coffee. And although we dated for three years after that, we never played a badminton game. As a surprise, Mark had his groomsmen set up a badminton field, so after the ceremony, as husband and wife, we played our first match to the cheers of the guests.”  Under the moonlight, the couple performed their first dance to Clemency’s “My Heart is the Eastern Horizon” and ended the night with a swirl of sparklers.

We look at a lot of weddings here at PW, and while our main goal is to share inspiring details for your big day, sometimes we get lost in the magic of the couple themselves. Which is absolutely the case with Danielle and Tucker. Look at this pair—have you ever seen a duo more psyched to be married? Their joy and exuberance is contagious, and we love how perfectly that translates into their peppy yellow, orange, and grey decor. Big thanks to Steven and Lily Photography for sharing this day with us! We’re overwhelmed by all the happiness.

Holiday Wedding in the South by Paper Antler
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Holiday weddings are just so romantic…. and so fun to share during this festive season!  Today we’ve got a classic wedding by one of our fave duos- Paper Antler (photographers and philanthropists extraordinaire). Kristen and Matt wed in Auburn, Alabama, where they met in college. The day was coordinated in navy, fuchsia, and black against a backdrop of wreaths and Christmas lights.

The church was a picturesque setting with poinsettias, Christmas trees, and garland adding to the already majestic altar.  According to their photographers, Kristen and Matt were laughing, having fun, and just purely enjoying each other’s company the entire day.  At the reception, there were classic fabrics and candelabras gussying up the space, but more than anything it was a celebration of love and fun.  Two of the highlights: an amazing macaroni and cheese bar and wild salsa dancing on the dance floor!

… And at the end, Kristen and Matt’s exit was accompanied by a gorgeous sparkler send-off!
