Jessica and Stephen were married in St. George, Utah on May 3. The bride looked breathtaking in a short-sleeve lace gown with a curly side-swept updo. Jessica’s dress was extra special because of who made it- her (now) sister-in-law! “She sewed every stitch of my dress,” Jessica said. “We spent hours fabric shopping, sketching, trying the dress on, pinning and unpinning lace, and the finished project was even more perfect than I ever could have dreamed of.” Jessica carried a bright bouquet of peonies, garden roses, succulents, and dusty millers. The groom opted for a fitted navy blue suit with a floral-patterned neck tie. The traditional ceremony featured three adorable flower girls. The reception was held in the modern clubhouse at Sand Hollow Resort and featured dark wooden tables and chivari chairs. The place settings also held a lot of meaning for the couple. “The china setting at our dinner were pieces of all four of our grandmothers china, and other pieces of china that we shopped for together,” Jessica said. “They were all mismatched and unbelievably beautiful.” Each guest was greeted with a small jar of jam as a favor to take home with them. Guests indulged in waffles topped with whipped cream and fruit for dinner, a representation of many meals the couple shared together while dating. Afterwards, family and friends enjoyed various cakes adorned with succulents, and danced the night away. “Our wedding was every thing we love combined into one big party! I wanted our guests to walk in and know we created every detail,” Jessica said. “We wanted it to scream Stephen and Jessica. I think we accomplished that.” See the full board here.

Lucy and Ryan were married at Seven Day Adventist Church in North Perth, Australia, followed by a reception at Sittella Winery in Swan Valley, on April 27. The bride opted for a casual look with a strapless, flowy gown featuring ruching and layering details. She wore her hair in a relaxed updo under a veil that Lucy and her grandmother handmade together. She carried a bouquet complete with dark red peonies, thistle, and greenery. Her ‘maids wore short, sleeveless, navy blue dresses and carried bouquets featuring white blooms and greenery. The groom donned a navy blue suit and bow tie, while his men wore white button-down shirts with red ties. “Everything was centered around creating a warm atmosphere,” Lucy said. “I have dappled in a bit of interior design so I took on the role of visual design of the ceremony and reception.” The couple exchanged vows in front of 100 guests in a traditional ceremony, with an ivy-covered arch as the backdrop, and featured the bride’s 5-year-old cousin as the flower girl. The guests then moved to the Sittella Winery for food, drinks, and dancing. “We wanted our wedding to be relaxed- a day where we could celebrate the start of the rest of our lives and genuinely enjoy the company of our closest friends and family,” Lucy said. Each table featured a floral centerpiece, with the table number written on a mini chalkboard, and tea towel favors designed by the couple.The reception featured games such as the newlywed shoe game, and a more creative component as well! “Each table had to come up with a poem for the bride and groom- a very hilarious event that included a spectacular impromptu rap form one of the guests,” Lucy said. Guests enjoyed a three-tiered cake adorned with greenery for dessert. Lucy’s advice for engaged couples? “Set aside regular times during the planning to keep your family and brial party in the loop,” she said. “It’s important that everyone is on the same page for the big day.” See the full board here.

Alexandra + Alejandro: Pastel Springtime California Golf Club Wedding by Gina & Ryan Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Alexandra and Alejandro were married at Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake, Calif. on May 31. The bride donned a strapless fit ‘n flare lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and wore her hair in a delicate updo. Her best pals were outfitted in short pink and blue dresses with various necklines. They all carried bouquets with garden roses, hydrangeas, and peonies. The groom and his men looked dashing in gray three-piece suits. The groom differentiated himself from the colored vests and neckties by sporting white. “We did a first look before the ceremony, ” Alexandra said. “It was our favorite part of the day. We weren’t married yet, but looking back, it was our only few minutes of uninterrupted time to just be together.” The couple was married under two large trees by Alexandra’s uncle in front of 170 guests. “We wrote our ceremony and included a variety of cultural traditions, ranging from Spanish traditions from our families, to the Irish tradition of handfasting,” Alexandra said. A cocktail hour followed, and then guests moved inside to a dining room where they were greeted by chalkboard signs. Escort cards guided them to round tables with white linens, gold chiavari chairs, and bright floral centerpieces. Guests chose from a variety of full-service food stations (one of which included a luau-style pig), and enjoyed a beer garden with five varieties of craft beer. Alexandra was incredibly happy with the whole day. “While we didn’t know exactly what we wanted when we started planning, it ended up getting something absolutely classic and perfect for us.” See the full board here.
