Lisa and Christian were married at Little Brown Church followed by a reception at Golden Road Brewery in Atwater Village, Calif. on August 10. The bride wore a silhouette strapped a-line wedding gown with floral cutouts on the hem, while the groom wore a seersucker suit. To fit their casual theme, bridesmaids and groomsmen chose their own outfits! Bouquets and boutonnieres featured peonies, dahlias, roses, and orchids. These two nature-lovers walked down the aisle hand-in-hand to say their “I do’s.” Following the ceremony, guests arrived at a local pub filled yummy vegan foods, craft brewed beers, and lawn games galore. They were also asked to consider helping rescue a research chimp or saving an animal shelter. Favors were bags of “seeds of love” to plant. Can you guess where they went on their honeymoon? A 2-week safari to none other than Africa!

Kathy and Christopher were married at Montecito Country Club in Santa Barbara, Calif. on December 29. “The Montecito Country Club was the first and only venue that we saw in person,” Kathy said. “With it’s rolling green hills, ocean views, and unique architecture, the country club was the ideal combination of charm and elegance. We knew right away that it was the perfect match for us.” The bride wore a sweetheart ruched ruffled wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled broach in her side updo, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a blush tie. “The one moment in our wedding day that I cannot stop thinking about is exchanging vows during the ceremony as the sun set behind us,” she said. “It was both meaningful and magical, and I remember wishing the moment would last forever.” The reception followed inside. Tables were decorated with garden rose, tulip, and hydrangea centerpieces, table names of places the couple had traveled together to, and homemade beer favors at each place setting. “Chris and I started working on those brews months before,” Kathy said. “It was a lot of work but definitely worth it.” Guests also danced the night away to a Beatles Tribute band and ate bread pudding cake. “We wanted to incorporate Chris’ Southern heritage into the wedding, and fortunately, our pastry chef had an amazing recipe,” she said.

Carolina and Benjamin were married at the Twentieth Century Women’s Clubhouse in Eagle Rock, Calif. on November 2. “We knew our venue was the one due to how unique it was,” Carolina said. “It’s quaint craftsman architecture really drew us in.  . . the stage in the main hall, the foyer, the sunroom, the portico, and the lawn were all special features we’d never seen before.” Since they wanted their wedding to feel more like an elaborate house party, the couple opted for a “Day of the Dead” theme with lots of colorful do-it-yourself accents. Floral arrangements were a combination of both real and paper blooms, papel picado banners were hung inside and out, and clothespins secured escort cards. “The finished product of the escort cards on the wall was great,” she said. “I also loved the fact that people ended up clipping their own name tags to their clothes. It brought an element of fun to the wedding that I wasn’t expecting, and I loved it.” By the end of the night, you couldn’t help but notice all the smiling faces, positive energy, and dancing thanks to the mariachi band.
