Samantha and Austin were married in a traditional church ceremony at First Baptist Church of Pinson followed by a reception inside the banquet hall. Fun fact: She is a former contestant on America’s Next Top Model. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a frothy, full tulle skirt, accessorized with a braided updo and cameo necklace, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. Guests were greeted with programs that featured a timeline of the couple’s relationship. “December 21, 2012 to the ancient Mayan calendar may have been the end of the world, but it was actually the beginning of theirs . . . Austin got down on one knee to ask Samantha to marry him. In the same Marine Biology classroom where it all began.” Just as the ceremony began, “I turned the corner with my dad walking me down the aisle in the church I grew up in and finally saw Austin for the first time,” Samantha said. The processional was just as exciting as the recessional — filled with ribbon wands! The reception kicked off with signature drinks such as Coca-Cola and sparking pink lemonade, tables were decorated with family heirloom vases and vessels atop mirrors, and paper pinwheels hung from the ceiling. In addition to the three-tiered cake, a dessert display was overflowing with Italian cannolis, chocolate-covered strawberries, and pies. See the full board here.

Allison + Victor: A Traditional Rustic Illinois Ballroom Wedding By Gray Photography

Allison and Victor wed before 150 guests at the St. Raphael Catholic Church in Naperville, Ill. “There is something so surreal about being surrounded by everyone you know and care about,” Allison said. She wore a satin Casablanca Bridal a-line wedding gown and her hair in long, loose curls adorned with a vintage-inspired comb. Allison’s “something old” was wrapped around her bouquet — a piece of lace from her mom’s wedding gown. As the newlyweds exited the ceremony, guests blew bubbles! “[For the reception,] I knew I didn’t want our wedding to be formal and stuffy,” she said. “I was drawn to the natural elements, flowers, and wood. Sort of a rustic vibe, but classic.” Escort cards were displayed on wooden logs, and cocktails were served in mason jar mugs. Assorted vases and vessels were filled with bright blooms and placed on top of circular mirrors. Old-fashioned caramels were at each place setting as favors. Allison and Victor chose the song “Then” by Brad Paisley for their first dance. “We are huge country fans,” Allison said. “I used to hate country, but Victor introduced me , and now, it’s basically all I listen to.” See the full board here.
