Deborah and Laurence were married at The Ritz Carlton in Cancun, Mexico on November 27 — right after Thanksgiving! “The warm location, and the outstanding customer service of the hotel” made them know it was the venue for them! Who could resist that? The bride wore an ivory sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a sash tied in a bow, while the groom wore a black suit and tie. “Walking down the aisle barefoot with the sand between my toes . . . seeing my future life partner, family and close friends in front of this breathtaking ocean view,” Deborah said. “It was a moment of joy and tremendous gratitude with God for allowing everything I envisioned to be materialized.” The ceremony was strictly barefoot! Approximately 25 guests sat on comfy ottoman poufs, aisles were lined with wooden signs that displayed verses such as “love never fails” and “it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily ignored, it keeps no record of wrongs” from 1 Corinthians 13. After the traditional Jewish breaking of the glass, the nuptials were sealed with a kiss under the chuppah. Dinner and dancing followed inside the ballroom. Farm tables were decorated with lit lanterns and candles, continent table names, and lots and lots of rose petals. The newlyweds’ favorite moment? “The song I wrote and sang for Larry,” she said. Hangover kits attached to bottles of water served as favors, and a grand exit of sparklers ended the night.

Mandy and Allen were married at a private lakeside residence in Eagle Mountain Lake, Texas on May 18. ”The landscape was absolutely gorgeous with trees covering the entire front half of the property,” Mandy said. “We both wanted an outdoor spring wedding, so with such a stunning layout, we knew this was the perfect place for us.” Coming up with inspiration was the easy part! They both love the show Mad Men and aviation. So, a 1960s mod travel-theme it was. The bride wore a v-neck lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a statement necklace and shoulder-length veil, while the groom wore a white button-up shirt, black pants, and suspenders, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore flamboyant red off-the-shoulder dress and white gloves. The cutest attendants were the flower girls and ring bearer, who played the part of stewardesses and a pilot, respectively! As guests arrived, they were greeted with multiple destination posters from Los Angeles to London and vintage suitcases. “We decided to exchange our vows privately before the ceremony,” Allen said. “The entire day leading up to that was chaotic and filled with last minute tasks. The moment I turned around and saw her standing there, all the stress was washed away and everything felt completely right.” Plus, the reception decor featured patterned table runners, wooden airplanes, and mint vases and vessels. Music was played on a turntable with lots of oldie tunes from records, postcards served as the guest book, and even vegan-friendly food was prepared. The dessert display included multiple cakes, but that one that stood out most was the one topped with a R2D2 and Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
