Rachelle and Ryan were married in a traditional church ceremony at Assumption University Chapel followed by an indoor reception at St. Clair Centre for the Arts in Windsor, Ontario, Canada on August 10. “We chose our venue because of the spectacular view of the Detroit skyline, and the beautifully landscaped riverfront gardens,” Rachelle said. The bride wore an ivory sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a ruched bodice, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a pink tie. Bridesmaids complimented one another in differing metallic shades and carried bouquets of roses, orchids, and dahlias. Did you notice that the ring bearer’s cufflinks were Lego pieces? “The one moment that will play in my mind forever is walking down the aisle with my father by my side and seeing Ryan looking back at me with such love in his eyes, and the overwhelming feeling of knowing that this was the best day of my life,” she said. There even was a bag piper who played during the processional! Following the nuptials, the reception followed inside the St. Clair Centre for the Art’s ballroom. The tables were draped in silk linens, and “delicately cascading floral arrangements created an ambiance of an enchanted forest,” Rachelle said. Bonus: A Latin-inspired band performed followed by a DJ. Two for one!

Caity and Bryan were married at the Las Vegas Country Club in Las Vegas, Nev. on April 4. “As soon as I walked out onto the terrace, I knew it was the one,” Caity said. “The view, the stained concrete, and the amazing backdrop!” The bride wore a lace mermaid wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a tan vest and pants, blue bow tie, and black Converse tennis shoes. Bridesmaid dresses were handmade! Not to mention they’re oh-so elegant. Guests choose a seat not a side when they arrived to the ceremony. “We really wanted a neutral and natural look, so we went with a lot of champagne and ivory with a touch of yellow,” she said. “The sunflowers I had my florist put down the aisle made the perfect frame for my husband and I ” to say our “I do’s.” Plenty of lawn games were played during cocktail hour. “My biggest fear was everyone getting bored or being upset while we were taking pictures  . . . we provided giant Jenga, corn hole, and a photobooth,” Caity said. Props such as lips, mustaches, heart-shaped sunglasses, and “Run!” and “Good Luck!” quote boxes were absolute favorites. The outdoor reception twinkled with a chandelier and string lights overhead, tables decorated with mason jar centerpieces, and a mini bundt cake was served instead of a traditional tiered one.

Kellie and Tyler were married at Temecula Creek Inn in Temecula, Calif. on November 30. The bride wore a sweetheart wedding gown with a lace bodice and ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a plaid tie and pocket square. Not to mention her custom Converse tennis shoes! Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, ranunculuses, and dusty millers. The outdoor ceremony began just before sunset and was lit with plenty of chandeliers and string lights from trees. After the vows were said and sealed with a kiss, the newlyweds couldn’t help but show their excitement with a fist pump or two. Guests kept warm during cocktail hour with blankets, roasting marshmallows by the bonfire, and a cigar bar. A favorite moment during the reception? “Our first dance and the dancing with all of our family and friends,” Kellie said. Memories were built (and signed) onto Jenga pieces, mini bundt cakes were served as something sweet, and a grand exit was made with sparklers! “This is YOUR day,” she said. “No one else’s, so make it exactly how you want it and not how other people want it to be.”
