Nicole and Drew were married at In the Garden in Jacksonville, Fla. on March 30. Nicole stunned in a strapless blush tulle ball gown and a statement floral necklace. She softly curled her red hair and opted for a ballet length veil. She carried a bouquet of white fabric roses. Her best girls looked glamorous in fitted gold sequined dresses. The groom looked handsome in a gray suit and black neck tie, while his men were clad in gray dress pants and blush bow ties.  The pair exchanged vows outside in front of an altar made from birch trees and it was adorned with vintage lace and garden roses. A reception followed on the patio. “We wanted our wedding to be so “us”. In our free time we are thrift store fanatics & flea market freaks,” Nicole said of her decor inspiration. “I thrifted all of our decor for over a year.” The reception tables featured striped taper candlesticks and pillar candles displayed in mix-n-match brass holders. The space was filled with romantic candles of every kind, as well as string lights. “Nothing is more romantic to me than being surrounded by the soft glow of candles.” Guests used cocktail napkins with the phrase “I’ll drink to that” printed on them. The guests enjoyed dinner, a photo booth, and a three-tier white-frosted cake adorned with blush peonies. The couple gave out coffee and tea as favors to their guests as a way to thank them. “At the end of the day you are marrying the person you love, that’s what it’s all about. Not the champagne and caviar- just true love,” Nicole said. See the full board here.

Ken Lee; Reception Music: Ben Lee

Janke and Mitchell were married at Fremantle Town Hall, followed by a reception at Moore and Moore Cafe in Fremantle, Western Australia on April 19. Janke looked stunning in a custom cap sleeve gown with a scoop neck and lace peplum waist. She donned her hair in a fishtail braid and carried a beautiful bouquet of proteas, roses, and seeded eucalyptus. “I wanted to use proteas as a focus as I am originally from South Africa,” Janke explained. Her ‘maids opted for short sleeve mint and navy beaded dresses and carried bouquets of king proteas and baby’s breath tied together with a long navy ribbon. The groom and his men looked handsome in fitted navy suits and skinny black neck ties. The ceremony took place at the Fremantle Town Hall, which features a stage with bronzed curtains. “We remembered the Fremantle Town Hall – a beautiful old venue in the center of town…making a pretty amazing backdrop for a wedding ceremony,” Janke said of the space. As the pair recessed down the aisle after the knot was tied, friends and family tossed eucalyptus leaves at the newlyweds. A cocktail-style reception followed, which allowed guests to mingle throughout the evening, versus sitting down at a single table for the entire reception. As an alternative to the traditional guest book, Janke and Mitchell asked friends and family to take a photo of themselves and write their name! They enjoyed signature cocktails, Red Bull Vodkas and Pimm’s, as well as a mixture of local and South African cuisine. Various cakes were arranged on a dessert table around the wedding cake for guests to indulge in. Janke suggests not stressing out about the little details. “You don’t need it all, we went without a lot of the trimmings and no on even noticed,” she said. See the full board here.

Shana and Ben were married at El Capitan Canyon in Goleta, Calif. on April 12. Shana looked stunning in a strapless lace gown with her hair down and curled. She donned an herb and flower crown and a fingertip veil. She carried a bouquet of burgundy dahlias and peonies, red roses, dark pink cascading amaranthus, white anemones, succulents, and greenery. The groom looked handsome in a charcoal gray suit and a pale green neck tie. He also accessorized with a boutonniere of succulent, waxflower, dahlia, and scabiosa pods. The couple tied the knot overlooking the Pacific Ocean. They were married by a close friend under a wooden chuppah adorned with greenery and they exchanged handwritten vows. “We wanted a wedding venue that would reflect our love for California terrain,” Shana explained. “Getting married over the Pacific Ocean was a shared dream for us.” The 100 guests tossed flower petals at the newly married couple as they recessed down the aisle. Guests enjoyed beer and wine at the reception, which was denoted on a painted chalkboard. Family and friends looked to a window seating chart to find their seats. They sat at long wooden tables with burlap runners and floral centerpeices. “The flow of the whole day was intentional but lighthearted, joyful, and celebratory,” Shana said. Guests received candles as a favor. After dinner a dance party followed as well as a late-night fire for everyone to enjoy. Shana recommends that brides stick to what they want during wedding planning. “Let your wedding be a reflection of you and your fiance and try to stay true to your vision. You can’t make everyone happy!” See the full board here.

Lindsay looked beautiful in a fitted lace gown with a scalloped low back and donned dangling crystal earrings. Her hair was pulled back into a low updo and she carried a bouquet of white and burgundy ranunculus, lisianthus, astilbe, and lamb’s ear. Her ‘maids opted for burgundy chiffon dresses with various necklines and a thin black sash. They carried bouquets of anemones and white ranunculus. The groom and his men looked dapper in classic black vested suits and black striped neck ties. The pair tied the knot in a traditional church ceremony in front of 175 guests. “I don’t know if there has ever been a more special moment in my life as the wedding ceremony,” Lindsay recalled. A reception followed at the Piedmont Estate and Gardens. “As soon as we saw Piedmont Estate and Gardens that we’d found, we were certain it was the perfect venue,” Lindsay explained. “From the floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor, to the modern design within a historical landmark, the location was perfect.” Guests sat at round tables in wooden chiavari chairs. The head wooden table was adorned with anemones, roses, and dusty miller, as well as romantic candles. After dinner and dancing, guests indulged in a four-tier cake adorned with satin ribbon and a wire topper. Family and friends threw confetti as the newlyweds exited the reception. Lindsay’s helpful tip to remember on your wedding day? “Don’t sweat missing a ‘mandatory’ detail, we omitted party favors, and I didn’t mind, or worry about keeping track of everything,” she said.
