Sarah and Dave were married at The Gardens At Great Oaks in Roswell, Ga. on May 3. The bride glowed in a strapless lace A-line gown accessorized with a pearl necklace, her hair in an elegantly curled side ponytail. She carried a bright bouquet of white hydrangeas, roses, and yellow calla lilies. Her ‘maids opted for blue and white lace v-neck dresses and partial updos. The groom and his men looked handsome in gray suits and pale yellow neck ties. As guests arrived they were given handmade yellow programs and greeted by a yellow and gray printed sign indicating to seat wherever they pleased. “Dave and I wanted our wedding to be an extension of who we are and what we love,” Sarah explained. 80 friends and family members sat in white folding chairs as the pair exchanged vows in the garden on a gorgeous sunny day. “As it turns out we had the most beautiful day… I wouldn’t have changed a single thing, especially the weather,” Sarah said. A reception followed at The Gardens, where guests signed a large framed photo of the couple in lieu of a traditional guestbook. “We created most of the decoration items ourselves which allowed us to splurge on some fun things,” Sarah said. The couple made the terrarium centerpieces, and the groom’s mother helped Sarah make table runners and ribbon wedding wands. Tables were also dressed up with mason jars of sunflowers and baby’s breath. Family and friends enjoyed a photo booth and delicious food as part of the celebration. There was also a popcorn station featuring a variety of flavors and served in mason jars. “I’m glad we spent the time creating an atmosphere full of details that reflected us as a couple,” Sarah said of the decor.  As a favor, guests received handmade trail mix, which the couple dubbed Haverkamp Happy Trails Mix. Sarah advises newly engaged couples not to shy away from asking for help. “We had an all-star group of people that made our special day come to life exactly the way we envisioned it,” she said.

Natalie + Aaron: Green and Yellow Intimate Colorado Mountainside Wedding by James Moro Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Natalie and Aaron were married at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo. on August 9. Natalie wore her mother’s v-neck lace gown with short sleeves. Her hair was down and wavy, and she accessorized with a crystal headband, classic dangling earrings, and a matching necklace. She carried a bouquet of yellow and ivory roses, ranunculus, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids donned strapless chiffon dresses in various shades of yellow, gray, and champagne. The groom and his men looked handsome in dark suits and pale yellow ties. The ceremony took place outside the hotel with the Colorado mountains serving as the backdrop. The couple exchanged vows in front of just 70 guests under a wrought iron arch with hanging florals. The ceremony included an adorable flower girl and ring bearer pair and personal vows. A reception followed inside the hotel in a room with sweeping mountain views. Guests sat at round tables with crisp white linens and movie-inspired centerpieces. “Since the wedding was at the Stanley Hotel which was the inspiration for the Stephen King novel ‘The Shining,’ we added subtle references to the book and movie adaptions,” Natalie said. “One example was our hedge animal centerpieces. The other parts of the décor were more in line with the old fashioned feel of the hotel.” The bride and groom had everyone join in and dance with them for their entrance, a unique twist on a wedding tradition! After dinner, guests indulged in a three tier white cake adorned with yellow flowers. Natalie’s advice for engaged couples planning their wedding? “Don’t try to hire friends to save a buck; you get what you pay for,” she said. “I spent more than I would have liked but in the end it was definitely worth it!” See the full board here.

Alexis + Josh: A Cheerful Sunshine Yellow Spring Ohio Historic Home Wedding By Maiko Media

Alexis and Josh were married at The Glendale Lyceum in Glendale, Ohio on May 24. “We were having an outdoor ceremony in May, in Ohio, who knows what the weather would be like at that time?” Alexis said. “We had a very solid backup plan in case it rained, but no bride wants to have to do that. All week everyone kept asking if I looked at the weather, and I kept responding ‘No, I am not looking until Thursday night.’ It ended up being a perfect day!” The bride wore a strapless tulle ball gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long yellow chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, roses, and stocks. “I would not change a single thing about my wedding. Well, except for the groom’s and groomsmen’s socks. They were The University of Michigan socks, and I am an Ohio State fan,” she said. Following the proceedings, the reception took place inside the tea room. Tables were decorated with gray linens, navy blue napkins, tall floral centerpieces atop mirrors, and homemade buckeye ball favors at each place setting. “I graduated college with an art studio and art education degree, so I knew I would be coming up with a lot of the details myself,” she said. “My husband however is very traditional, so I knew we would have to incorporate both of our personalities in the wedding. I knew I wanted bright colors and a very ‘spring-like’ feel.” Next to the gifts and cards, guests were encouraged to sign a book filled with photos, and were showcased on a map of exactly where they traveled from. The newlyweds performed their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar, and exited amongst a sea of sparklers at the end of the night, ready for their honeymoon in Jamaica. “Not worrying about anything allowed me to enjoy marrying my best friend and really appreciate him and the people around me,” Alexis said.

Elizabeth and Timmy were married at Historic Malbis Plantation in Daphne, Ala. on November 30. “As a wedding photographer for the past three years, I wanted something unique and different, something I had never seen before in person,” Elizabeth said. “I had a little help from Pinterest and Etsy, and it took many hours slaving over DIY projects and many sleepless nights getting it all done, but I could have not asked for a better wedding once I saw everything together.” The bride wore a ruffled one-shoulder satin a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept braided updo and chunky, chandelier earrings, while the groom wore a dark gray vest and pants, accessorized with solid ties and Converse tennis shoes. She carried a bouquet of Before the ceremony, the couple exchanged love letters and gifts. Elizabeth wrote on a brown paper bag, “Timmy, I have loved you for 824 days but today will be the best day ever. Love, your fiance.” “The weather was perfect,” she said. “I was so nervous it would be way too cold or rainy, and it was 69-70 degrees and sunny.” Fun fact: It took place during the Iron Bowl. “We walked back up the aisle to the Alabama fight song, since Timmy and the groomsmen are huge football fans,” Elizabeth said. Guests were encouraged to update their statuses, tweets, or Instagram photos with the hashtag #goldmanwedding. The signature cocktail? Mountain dew! “I knew that a wide array of florals would make a gorgeous setup surrounded by mason jars and bottles of different sizes and candles galore,” she said. “It was truly beautiful! I incorporated a ton of cameras I found either on Ebay or local antique stores to showcase my love for photography.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me,” and then sat down at a sweetheart table with a fabric streamers backdrop and crystal chandelier from above. The three-tiered buttercream frosted cake was topped with a bunting banner with hearts and in addition, there was groom’s cake featuring Big ‘Al. See the full board here.
