Mony + Lionel: A Cheerful Eco-Friendly Yellow California Villa Wedding By Melvin Gilbert Photography

Mony and Lionel first met on eHarmony. “The first year we enjoyed each other’s company, discovering new restaurants together and going to concerts — we share a love for R&B and hip hop music,” Mony said. “We just had this connection, and we laughed all the time. As they say, the rest is history.” They were married in September at Villa del Sol in Fullerton, Calif. The bride’s vintage-inspired look included a side updo, bright red lips and kitten heels. Bridesmaids wore long yellow chiffon dresses with asymmetrical necklines, and groomsmen wore gray suits with personalized Chuck Taylor sneakers. With the help of family and friends, the floral arrangements were made. But “we wanted to keep the decor simple since Villa del Sol already had all this greenery and great architecture,” she said. Reception tables featured lanterns atop tree bark, and “let love bloom” potted succulents were given as favors. See the full board here.

Megan and George’s oceanside wedding along the Santa Barbara Coast was held at the Barcara Resort & Spa in California. After George proposed by writing “Will You Marry Me?” in stones at the bottom of their pool, Megan knew she wanted a Mid-Century modern design with bright pops of color in their floral arrangements and decor. Her bouquet featured yellow ranunculus, billy balls, and succulents, and the long reception tables were covered with gray and white chevron table runners. They even created their own s’mores box favors filled with gourmet vanilla and caramel marshmallows by Plush Puffs and chocolates. Yum! At the end of the night, string lights provided an intimate glow above as guests watched Megan and George perform their first dance to “If I Could” by Phish. See the full board here.

Brittany + Jason: A Darling Southern Wedding by Annabella Charles Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Another day, another springy Tennessee wedding to fall for (we couldn’t stop talking about Heather + Tyler’s Gallatin celebration last week). This Monday though, all eyes are on blushing Southern belle Brittany and the classic Southern ceremony she held with now-husband Jason at her family home in Cordova. Their navy, peach, and ivory nuptials are the perfect expression of preppy romance, especially when set in a lush backyard on a crisp June night. Big thanks to Annabella Charles Photography for sharing the day with us! You can see even more details in the full gallery.

Modern Carnival Wedding at Bear Flag Farm
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Naturally, we wanted to close out the year with a bang, and what could be more celebratory than a carnival-themed wedding?!  Chalinee and Craig are two vibrant, fun-loving Californians who were introduced thru mutual friends over a sushi dinner.  They dated for five years before Craig proposed, and their wedding vision included great food, a colorful and modern palette, and a few non-traditional elements that made the day especially unique and unforgettable. Craig’s love of the outdoors, paired with the couple’s determination to have a great meal, led them to Bear Flag Farm, where they could indulge in a breathtaking landscape, farm-to-table menu, and even a ferris wheel!  Enjoy these stunning photos by Anna Kuperberg!

When it came to the gown, Chalinee was all about texture.  Watters’ Adelaide gown couldn’t have fit the role more beautifully!  Each maid chose her own knee-length ivory frock, paired with a colorful shoe.  The Bear Flag Farm team whipped up some gorgeous bouquets with coral roses, ivory blooms and succulents, lending a bright and modern look to the day.  

The couple married on the farm’s cozy sunken lawn. They incorporated a Thai water ceremony  to honor Chalinee’s heritage.  Then, under a dramatic floral archway, they sealed their vows with kiss!  

One heck of a reception followed, including more of those vibrant florals,  a unique bento box meal, a silhouette portrait artist, and in lieu of a first dance, a first ride on the ferris wheel.  See the rest after the jump!
