Lindsay + Nick: A Fun NYC Park Wedding by Levi Stolove
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Lindsay and Nick’s early spring nuptials sum up everything we love about the surprises of personalized weddings. At first glance, the pretty pastel ceremony seems to be set in a secluded forest somewhere, but it’s actually in Upper West Side New York City! The duo married amongst family, friends, and tall trees at Fort Tryon Park, then followed up with a lively reception on the outdoor patio at the park’s New Leaf restaurant.  They splurged on excellent photography and their dream venue (smart choices in our book) and kept the rest of the wedding costs at a minimum by enlisting guests to help with everything from the desserts to the reception music. Special thanks to Levi Stolove for sharing these wonderfully airy photos with us!

Lindsay and Nick first bonded over early morning lesson planning at the school where they both worked—he taught math and she taught English. After years of dating, they married in the park right across the street from that school! “The ceremony went by very quickly, but felt sweet and personal,” remembers the bride. “We were lucky that the Linden trees [in the park] bloomed a bit early.”

Kendall+ Keddy: Great Gatsby Glam Photographed by Caroline + Ben Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Gatsby-hype or not,  Kendall and Keddy’s Austin wedding is an absolute knockout.  The bride’s favorite book is in fact, The Great Gatsby, and her favorite era? All of the art-deco and glamour of the 1920’s.  The Austin celebration was drenched with vintage-inspired details from the time period and the photographs by Caroline +  Ben Photography could not have captured the style, emotion, and opulence more perfectly.

For the ceremony, the couple planned to surprise one another with a scripture reading.  Unbeknownst to either of them, they had selected the exact same one, Ruth 1:16: ‘But Ruth replied: Do not persuade me to leave you or go back and not follow you. For wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you live, I will live; your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.’

Emily + Ben: A Vintage Tennessee Wedding by Gideon Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

From fond farewells to an emotional first look, Emily and Ben’s sweet Southern wedding is filled with special moments. Their vintage-inspired affair took place on a cool October day on the grounds of the Heartwood Hall estate just outside of Memphis, Tennessee, and we love how they blended traditional rustic touches with a modern hipster aesthetic. Special thanks to Gideon Photography for sharing photos from the day with us! You can view even more details in the full gallery.

Emily and Ben originally met at a conference in Monterey, California. She ended up moving from Tennessee to California to intern at the church that hosted the conference, and Ben happened to be a youth pastor at the very same church. He waited a full year for her to complete her internship before asking her on their first date with an elaborate scavenger hunt. The duo exchanged vows back in Tennessee during the Fall of Emily’s twenty-first year, which had always been a dream for the bride.

Kalista + Kyle: A Romantic Eco-Friendly Arts Center Wedding by Sequins & Candy Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Sometimes, it all starts with the dress. Jenny Packham’s ‘Eden’ gown was the main source of inspiration for Kalista and Kyle’s whimsical California wedding, which took place at Sausalito’s Headlands Center for the Arts. The 1920’s-inspired nuptials celebrated Beat poets, library books, a love of beer, and all things eco-friendly—and we couldn’t be more in love with the unique spin on romance. Special thanks to Sequins and Candy Photography for sharing the images with us today! You can find even more details in the complete gallery.

Kalista and Kyle are the ultimate California couple. They met on a sailboat six years before their wedding, and, according to the bride, fell in love almost instantly. “We connected on our mutual craving for adventure,” she says. Planning their intimate arts center wedding was its own wonderful adventure—the couple created almost every decorative element of the day (including the graphic invitations and limoncello favors) themselves. They exchanged vows under a favorite quote from Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, and, after the wedding, planted the citrus and birch trees they married in front of in their home backyard.
