Audra and Jeremy were married at Rancho Valencia Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, Ca. on November 1. “Both of us decided that we wanted a small, intimate wedding,” Audra said. Intimate it was, Audra and Jeremy chose to have their own private ceremony with just the two of them. “We knew it would be near impossible to get our immediate families in the same location,” Audra explained. “And we felt that it wouldn’t be fair to have one of our sides there, and not the other.” The bride opted for a strapless lace gown with an open back and accessorized with a neutral-colored sash with floral accents. She carried a bouquet made up of roses, succulents, scabiosa pods, billy balls, and anemones. Her groom donned a gray suit paired with a yellow tie and brown dress shoes. Following the ceremony held beneath the palm trees, the couple dined fireside and enjoyed champagne as well as a white fondant cake with fresh berries and personalized wire topper. Audra had no regrets about making her wedding day a private affair. “Dreams of a small intimate wedding? Do it,” she encouraged. “No one dictates how things need to be. It really is about the two people exchanging vows, and the magnitude of that.” See the full board here.

Mandy + Jens: A Rustic Gray and Yellow Fall North Carolina Park Wedding By Anchor & Veil Photography

 Photos: Anchor & Veil PhotographyVenue: Tanglewood Park

 Mandy and Jens were married at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, N.C. on October 5. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a polka dot fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a yellow button-up shirt and gray pants, accessorized with suspenders and a patterned tie. The only ‘maid wore a short black chiffon dress and carried a bouquet of roses and billy balls. Even the couple’s Yorkshire Terrier pup joined with a fashionable collar and leash. Guests were greeted with a wooden arrow sign that directed them to the ceremony and reception. To say Mandy made a grand entrance was an understatement — she arrived in a horse-drawn carriage. To symbolize their unity, they combined mason jars of sand together. The reception followed underneath a pavilion. Picnic tables were decorated with beer and wine bottles wrapped in twine, lace doilies, bird’s nests and eggs, and wooden slices with “W+M” carved into each one. “No two bottles were the same,” Mandy said. Dinner was served BBQ-style including, chicken, potato salad, baked beans, cole slaw, and rolls. Everyone was encouraged to sign a square for a quilt that was to be sewn together as a keepsake (and in lieu of a guest book). After the now Mr. and Mrs. performed their first dance, the father-daughter dance was performed, but with a twist — her mother too.  ”Even though it’s not tradition, our closeness made it only right to dance with her the perfect song,” she said.

Jill and Brian were married at Panorama Farms in Charlottesville, Va. last fall. ”We were blessed with beautiful sunny skies, mild weather, and a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains,” Jill said. “We had such a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends. It was truly the best day of our lives.”  The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a neutral pair of Lily Pulitzer peep-toe wedges, while the groom wore a a black suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Bridesmaids chose navy blue dresses in various styles to suit their figures and carried handmade bouquets of sunflowers, daisies, and mums. Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here! Love, Jill and Brian.” Can you guess what Jill drove to the ceremony in? A Jeep Wrangler! ”We wanted the focus to be on bringing everyone together to share in the joining of two,” she said. ”We met while I was still in graduate school at University of Virginia, and we loved the time we spent dating in Charlottesville and wanted to share the beautiful town with them.” Cocktail tables were decorated with baskets filled with sparkling water bottles and fruit, and yummy hors d’oeuvres were served hot-off-the-grill. The reception followed inside the barn where the newlyweds danced to ”You Are The Best Thing” by Ray Lamontagne as night fell and stars began to rise. See the full board here.

Kira + Mike: A DIY Yellow and Sage Green Spring New Jersey Mill Wedding By LeAnna Theresa Photography
Posted by czentgraf. Filed under Real Weddings

Kira and Mike were married at Prallsville Mills in Stockton, N.J. on June 8. They first met in high school, but didn’t start dating until a few years after they graduated. Since they share a love for camping and hiking, in 2011, they drove cross-country together for 42 days. “It was during that trip, at the Grand Canyon, that Mike proposed to me!” Kira said. The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a sage green button-up, gray suit pants, and a cap. “Our first look was such a special moment and made me feel so much less nervous before getting married,” she said. “It did not in any way ruin the moment of first seeing each other as we walked down the aisle.” Bridesmaids wore bright, sunshine yellow dresses and matching TOMS wedges, which were gifts. ”I loved my something blue,” Kira said. “I put on a fake tattoo that said, ‘Okay, let’s do this,’ and wore it on my calf. It was fun and non-traditional.” The ceremony was contributed by multiple family and friends — Mike’s uncle played the bagpipes and Kira’s best friend’s father officiated. Guests were escorted to their seats with a photo! ”My most favorite detail and project was creating the place cards,” she said. “I decided that any Facebook photo was fair game and searched for my favorite of each guest invited. Then, I uploaded it to an app called ‘Picasa,’ which allowed me to turn the pictures into a polaroid style.” The newlyweds were undecided on where they wanted to go on their honeymoon, so they asked guests to write on a globe where they thought the destination should be. Not a bad idea, right? See the full board here.
