Caroline and Braden were married at the Distillery’s Fermenting Cellar in Ontario on July 12. The 7,500 square foot industrial chic space featured timber beams and trusses as well as original limestone walls, which were uplit with purple. The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart ruffled ball gown, accessorized with a jewel-embellished belt and hairpin against her loose curls whereas the groom wore classic black suit with a patterned tie. The ceremony was decorated with tree branches in urns and dangling crystals, and the reception was decorated with lots of candles in tall votives. Think gliz and glamour with a bit of Persian influence. Drummers played during their entrance and dancers performed during their exit. How fun!
Most couples these days are opting to have other desserts at their reception in addition to or in lieu of a wedding cake. Why? Because it also doubles as a favor! Consider displaying different kinds of cupcake flavors and icings, but make sure to label (in case some guests have food allergies) and top with fun flags that say, “I do.” See more ideas in our photo gallery here.
Chantel and David were married at Our Savior Catholic Church and held their reception at Villa del Sol d’Oro on August 10. “The unique architecture, design, and landscaping made it perfect for an outdoor evening event on the terrace,” Chantel said. “The Villa is two-thirds scale replica of the Villa Collazi near Florence, Italy, which is said to have been designed by Michelangelo.” The couple aimed for an elegant and welcoming theme with lots of candles. The entire inside and outside of the villa was filled with thousands. Imagine that! Following the church ceremony, guests also enjoyed al fresco dining, including marinated olives and fresh-baked breads.”When we were sitting at the sweetheart table, it was one of the few times we had to ourselves that day,” she said. “We were glowing in the moment of being newlyweds and surrounded by our family and friends.” One of their favorite details? The flavor-infused bottles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar served as favors.

Meredith and Brandon were married on the banks of Ashley River at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, S.C. September 29. The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown with a pale blue floral sash, which matched her bridesmaid dresses perfectly. After the couple said their “I do’s” under a driftwood trellis adorned with hydrangeas and ranunculuses, cocktail hour kicked off with a signature drink and Southern fare, of course. A rustic atmosphere was set with the exposed beams and hanging candlelit mason jars of the Carriage House’s reception ceilings, and a band entertained guests as everyone hit the dance floor or cuddled up next to the fire outside.
