She donned her hair in a vintage glam chignon bun and wore crystal drop earrings. She carried a classic white bouquet of hydrangea and ranunculus, which had a photo of the bride’s late grandmother attached to it. Her ‘maids looked fabulous in long-sleeve champagne sequined dresses. The groom looked dapper in a dark blue pin-stripe three-piece suit, while his men donned dark suits and champagne neck ties. The pair exchanged vows at Aria, an industrial event space downtown. “The amazing beaded gold lace on my gown completely inspired the vintage glam feeling I knew would blend flawlessly with Aria’s raw space,” Allison said. They were married under three gorgeous crystal chandeliers and in front of stunning white drapery. A reception followed at the same location. There was a family photo display and vintage style furnishings throughout the space. “I like things clean, white, and fluffy. I knew I wanted a neutral palette,” Allison said. Guests sat at round tables in brown chiavari chairs with glass vase centerpieces filled with carnations, hydrangeas, Queen Anne’s lace, and gold accents. The reception also featured personalized gold foil napkins “It was amazing to see how all our personalized details came together,” Allison said. The menu reflected the places the couple has lived together, which was created by the maid of honor. The dessert display consisted of homemade cupcakes, pie pops, and an espresso cart. ” We loved sneaking off to have our little moments in the gorgeous structure,” Allison said the wedding day.

Emily and Jeff were married at The Pittsburgh Project with a reception following at The Renaissance Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pa. on January 25. The bride looked stunning in a beaded V-neck ballgown and a white bolero. She wore her hair in a curly updo and accessorized with a twisted pearl necklace and pearl earrings. She carried a winter bouquet of ferns, roses, alstroemeria, thistle, hypericum berries, and brunia berries. Her ‘maids donned long forest green gowns with off-white knitted shawls. The groom looked dapper in a white button-down, suspenders, and a forest green bow tie. The groomsmen complemented his look with forest green neck ties.  250 guests were greeted by a romantic lantern candle, a chalkboard sign displaying the wedding party accented with greenery. “We wanted to merge the two worlds of the woods and urban living. Not to mention, there’s nothing prettier than a forest covered in snow,” Emily said of their wedding inspiration. The venue was lined with votive candles and decorated with various greenery and birch tree accents. Following the ceremony, guests made their way  to the reception. They found their seating assignments displayed on a moss-covered screen. Other reception decor included a wooden log that doubled as a vessel for guest cards. Waxflower and greens sat in silver vases as centerpieces. Guests enjoyed a nice sit down dinner with multiple courses, and indulged in a three-tier cake decorated with pinecones, sugar succulents, and a metallic monogram. ” I quickly realized that what looks good for other people isn’t necessarily what I want,” Emily said of designing her wedding day look. “The wedding is about the whole family.” See the full board here.

Some of the tables were lined with candlelit hurricanes, glass goblets, gold mercury votives, pears, and greenery. Other tables featured tall glass cylinders as centerpieces with branches and pears inside. “I tried to have our wedding be a representation of Jordan and I as a couple, so we decided to go with classic and timeless,” Laura said of her inspiration.

Lewis Jewelry; Shoes: Ted Baker and Sperry Top-Sider; Bridesmaid Dresses: DV by Dolce Vita; Ceremony Musicians & DJ: The Rub 

Andrea and Gregory were married at Elkins Resort on Priest Lake in Priest Lake, Idaho on March 1. The bride stunned in an all-lace dress featuring illusion lace long sleeves. Her hair was donned in a side updo and she accessorized with a birdcage veil. She carried a white and green bouquet of hydrangeas, calla lilies, ranunculuses, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids bundled up in navy blue coats, sage scarves, and warm boots. The groomsmen looked dapper in navy three-piece tweed suits, complete with checkered button downs, and gray bow ties. The couple knew right away that  this was the perfect location for them, since that’s where they got engaged. “We were inspired by the natural beauty, cozy winter getaway…and magic of a snowy winter wedding,” Andrea said of their wedding inspiration. The ceremony took place outside (in single digit temperatures) and featured pine cone aisle markers, and the littlest attendant riding on a sled down the aisle! A friend officiated the wedding and wrote a personal ceremony. “Our guests were incredibly gracious in tolerating our request to be married outside,” Andrea said. “Everyone bundled up, huddled around patio heaters, and warmed up with hand warmers, blankets, and hot chocolate.” An indoor reception followed, where guests ate, drank, and danced all night! “Looking around at all the friends and family willing to travel the snowy roads and stand outside with us while we got married, it hit both of us just how much love surrounded us,” Andrea recalled.
