Betsy and Adam were married at CeNita Vineyards in Cleveland, Ga. on June 1. Betsy looked gorgeous in an ivory lace and organza strapless fit ‘n flare dress. She accessorized with a silver belt and crystal necklace, and wore her hair in a low updo. She carried a bouquet of peach and pink garden roses, white pincushions, white peonies, and pink astilbe. Her ‘maids opted for a unique skirt and shirt combo, donning light pink skirts and taupe scoop-neck shirts. They accessorized with various statement necklaces and carried bouquets of ranunculus, peonies, stock, and dusty miller. The groom and his men were clad in dark suits and dark blue ties, the groom stood out with a plaid pastel neck tie. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 guests in front of a wooden cross. Guests sat in white folding chairs marked by pastel floral arrangements made by the groom’s family. “I have always loved antiques, so I knew the vintage feel was what I wanted to go for,” Betsy said. “Most of the decor came from various family members.” A vintage welcome table greeted guests at the reception which featured framed chalkboard signage and white porcelain plates for guests to sign. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and a blue and white striped table runner. “I really just wanted a wedding that was relaxing and fun,” Betsy said. “I wanted people to come, sit down, have a good meal and enjoy themselves on our special day.” There were multiple elaborate desserts for guests to indulge in. They filled up on a two-tier white buttercream cake adorned with pastel flowers, a two-tier square chocolate mousse cake topped with fruit, and miniature pies. After eating and dancing the night away, guests were given peanut favors and held sparklers for Betsy and Adam’s send-off, for which Betsy changed into a lace and tulle tea-length dress. “It will all come together,” Betsy said. “I think I have told that to every bride that I have talked to since I got married, but it is so true!” See the full board here.

Natalie and Joey were married at St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, followed by a reception at Bluemont Vineyard in Leesburg, Va on November 1. Natalie stunned in a strapless a-line gown with a bejeweled belt. She wore her hair in a low updo and carried a bouquet of white roses and hydrangeas, accented with silver brunia balls and dusty miller. Her ‘maids donned strapless gray chiffon dresses and carried simple baby’s breath bouquets. The groom and his men looked handsome in traditional black suits. The groomsmen wore striped neck ties, while Joey opted for solid black. The couple tied the knot in front of 150 friends and family in a traditional church ceremony. Afterwards, they moved to the Bluemont Vineyard for drinks, dinner, and dancing. “I wasn’t so focused on a theme or color, as much as creating an ambiance,” Natalie said. “I wanted the room to feel warm, inviting, and personal.” The stable where they held the reception had a hardwood backdrop, so Natalie went lighter on the decor elements. Guests sat at round tables in chivari chairs with string lights twinkling above them. Floral mason jars hung from the ceiling and floral centerpieces were crafted with the help of wooden sticks, while burlap tags acted as table numbers. “The only theme I wanted my wedding to be, was the theme of us as a couple.,” Natalie explained. “All the personal touches and family traditions truly made it unforgettable.” Guests received jars of jam as favors, which was homemade by the bride’s mother. The dessert display featured pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes, Baltimore berger cookies, and Italian waffle cookies. Yum! The couple also cut a simple white cake adorned with fall flowers. “You know you are a lucky bride when you can say, there is not one thing I would change about that day!” See the full board here.

Heather + Leah: A Vintage Literary-Themed Summer New York Vineyard Wedding By John Schlia Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Heather and Leah were married at Barlow’s Mill, the bride’s parent’s vineyard, in Fredonia, N.Y. on June 29. “We tried to take a fairly laid-back approach,” Heather said. “We knew we wanted the wedding to be outside, and we knew that we wanted it to feel homey and relatively casual and fun.” The brides both wore sweetheart a-line wedding gowns, accessorized with sashes and custom-painted Converse tennis shoes, and carried bouquets of roses, orchids, and succulents. “We each asked the men and women, who were most important in our lives to stand up with us, and we asked each woman to wear a green dress that they would wear again someday,” she said. “We loved having them all there with us, looking and feeling like themselves.” Even their golden retriever pooch got to lounge around too! The newlyweds made their grand entrance into the tented reception with 120 guests cheering. “Leah’s sister Ruth is amazing at decorating things, and after she threw us the most beautiful bridal shower ever, we told her that if she would take charge of the decorating, we would just do what she told us to do! And we pretty much did,” Heather said. “She had such a great eye and just helped us make things beautiful.” Tables were decorated with stacks of vintage books, clocks, monogrammed letters, and lanterns atop burlap runners. The favors? Basil plants in mason jars. At the end of the night, a bonfire was lit to roast s’mores and keep warm. See the full board here.

 Valerie Kevin were married at Falkner Winery in Temecula, Calif. last spring. “My wedding day was beautiful,” Valerie said. “It was about 70 degrees outside, and the location where we got married had the sun shining right down on it.” The bride wore a a sweetheart satin wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a black tie. Bridesmaids wore short chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of dahlias, calla lilies, berries, succulents, and ranunculuses. “I had no real inspiration aside from a bouquet that I saw on Pinterest,” she said. “I met with my florist and she really came up with a beautiful concept.” Guests were greeted with a “Happily Ever After” wooden sign that welcomed them to the ceremony. Following the nuptials, “our wedding party got introduced to the punk rock version of ‘Brown Eyed Girl,’ and we had our first group dance to “It Takes Two” by Rob Base, which kicked off a great party,” Valerie said. “Start to finish, it was a blast!” Tables were decorated with gray linens, red napkins, topiary-style centerpieces with hanging candles, chalkboard wine bottle table numbers, and cake pops at each place setting.
