Alison and Kit were married at Moloa’a Shangri-La in Kauai, Hawaii on March 16. The bride wore a strapless lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair in a braided sideswept ponytail, jeweled sash, and henna tattoos on her feet, while the groom wore a light grey suit, accessorized with a tie, Dooney & Bourke suspenders, and a leis around his neck. Bridesmaids wore long purple chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, dahlias, orchids, seeded eucalyptus, and succlents. Even their dog was included too! Guests were greeted to the bali-themed architectural estate overlooking scenic views of Moloa’a Bay and a chalkboard sign that said, “The best things in life are meant to be shared. #durdererwedding.” The ceremony took place in the backyard promptly at 2 p.m. The chuppah was underneath a giant oak tree draped with fabric and hung with crystals. Alison was escorted down the aisle with both of her parents and then, circled Kit 7 times also called the hakafot. Once the ketubah was signed, the glass was broken. Fun fact: It was all live streamed for those family and friends that could not attend. Notice the fist pump during the recessional? The reception took place underneath a pole tent, hung with paper lanterns, a few hours later. Tables were decorated with textured linens, floating cylinder vase centerpieces, and votive candles, surrounded by folding padded chairs. The dance floor wasn’t complete without the hava nagila song being played with the newlyweds’ cast up on chairs. In lieu of a traditional guest book, everyone was asked to share a message written on postcards and hung on clothespins from vintage suitcases. The three-tiered cake was cut and served after dinner for dessert. At the end of the night, they exited amongst a sea of sparklers and jetted off to their honeymoon in New Zealand.

Lindsey and Jordan were married at Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 22. “There wasn’t actually one thing,” Lindsey said. “Everything was so beautiful. We loved the view from where we got married to the amazing gardens.” The bride wore a strapless lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls, structured bow sash, and a pair of mint Mary Jane high heels, while the groom wore a three-piece light gray suit, accessorized with a tie. Bridesmaids wore short yellow satin dresses and carried bouquets of roses, ranunculuses, craspedia balls, scabiosa pods, and succulents. Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Welcome to the best day ever . . . tag your photos on Instagram with #JandLrock.” The ceremony took place in the Fragrance Garden underneath a wisteria arbor with scenic views of the Wasatch Range. Once the vows were sealed with a kiss, it was official with almost 225 witnessing. The reception took place inside the Rose House featuring floor-to-ceiling windows. Tables were decorated with white linens, yellow runners, and vintage vases and vessels, surrounded by folding padded chairs. “Our DJ was able to get everyone out on the dance floor to celebrate, even people we would have never thought,” she said. “Our food was fantastic and different from anything else I’ve seen at a wedding. Just the support we felt from all of family and friends throughout the whole day was more than memorable.” A three-tiered buttercream frosted cake atop a wooden tree slice was cut for dessert. Even the cake topper matched their attire! The newlyweds’ best advice? “Be calm and start early,” Lindsey said. “Yes, this is the most important day of your life, but focus on the man or woman you are marrying more than stressing over simple little details. Remember that you are getting married and that is the most important part of the day. Start early and have people helping you other than family too. I was so grateful our families got to enjoy the day instead of having to set up chairs or worry if all the vendors were arriving on time.” At the end of the night, they exited amongst a sea of ribbon wands, and jetted off on their honeymoon to Florida.
