Dress Designers (from left to right): Romona Keveza and Berta Bridal

On Saturday, our editors’ breaths were taken away by those designer runway shows that featured unique (and dramatic) wedding dress backs. Their brilliant favorites include: a red-carpet ready Romona Keveza wedding gown, a Rorschach-like symmetry of lace appliqué from Kenneth Pool, sheer corsets from Jenny Lee, and sometimes, simple is the sexist; case in point: a Berta Bridal wedding gown with a single strand of buttons.

Beth and Wyatt were married in a traditional church ceremony at Saint and Christ Luke’s Episcopal followed by an indoor reception at Town Point Club in Norfolk, Va. on March 22. “With a three-month engagement and a hectic professional life, I didn’t have much time to plan and Town Point Club handled all the coordination with the vendors for the reception, and it was centrally located for all of our out-of-town guests,” Beth said. “It had amazing views too!” The bride wore a lace v-neck fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a keyhole back, accessorized with flats and a flower in her updo, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a patterned bow tie and Virginia Tech socks. “My bouquet featured items from both my grandmothers, who are deceased,” she said. Did you notice that the engagement ring is a sapphire too! Following the nuptials, the newlyweds went to Hague Bride where they placed a padlock on the railing and threw the keys into the water. The reception was decorated with paper pinwheel centerpieces, koozie favors at each place setting, and dancing shoes for guests to wear on the dance floor. Plus, a fun crossword puzzle to solve as alternative entertainment.

Kabri and Jora were married at Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue, N.Y. in front of 80 of their closest family and friends, traveling from over 14 states, on September 28. “The grounds gave us the connection we wanted to nature and the outdoors,” Kabri said. “There was a big tree that we could use as the centerpiece of our ceremony, and the open-air pavilion looked out onto the vineyard for the reception.” The color scheme incorporated red, oranges, and purples or “mountain sunset.” “We wanted to evoke the beauty of fall,” she said. As guests arrived, they were greeted with a chalkboard sign that quoted Robert Mondavi, “Wine to me is the passion, it’s friends and family, it’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.” The nuptials began shortly after they chose a seat not a side. To symbolize their unity, the two nail a bottle of wine and love letters inside a wooden box to be open on their fifth anniversary.”While the sun was setting over the vineyard, Jora and I rose and gave the first toast of the evening. . . we wanted to share our appreciation for their fervent desire to celebrate our marriage,” Kabri said. The newlyweds’ favorite part? The food! “The farm-to-table menu that we created with our caterer exhibited the season’s and region’s local and delicious produce. It was definitely the highlight,” she said.
