Sarah and Stephanie were married at Regale! at DC Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz. on October 24. “I wanted an outdoor desert wedding, and Stephanie wanted an indoor contemprary wedding — Regale! at DC Ranch had the perfect combination.” One bride wore a strapless silk fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a ruched bodice and skirt, accessorized with her hair in a sideswept updo, while the other bride wore a strapless silk fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a ruched bodice and skirt, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls. The only difference between the two: beaded bling. Bridesmaids wore long chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, calla lilies, succulents, and lisianthus. Before the ceremony, the couple opted for a first look. “We realized that we had very similar wedding dresses,” she said. “Neither of us had seen the other’s dress before that day.” They even surprised each other with gifts! (i.e. a locket necklace) “We decided to walk down the aisle together as neither of us wanted to be at the altar first,” Sarah said. “That moment when we met up before was truly unforgettable.” Once the exchanging of vows were sealed with a kiss, it was official, almost 55 witnessing. “Our entire bridal party danced to Chris Brown’s song ‘Forever’ as they were announced,” she said. “It was fun to be surrounded by family and friends to start the reception right.” Tables were decorated with gray linens, purple napkins, and pillar candle centerpieces atop mirrors, surrounded by chiavari chairs. “I spent most of the year making paper stars by hand for the ceiling,” Sarah said. “They turned out beautiful.” There was even an entire display of family photos. A two-tiered buttercream-frosted cake was cut and served for dessert concluding dinner. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Try and enjoy the planning process as opposed to stressing about it,” she said. “A wedding is a celebration.” At the end of the night, they exited amongst a sea of sparklers, and jetted off to their honeymoon in Hawaii.

Aly and Josh were married at Ravenswood Event Center in Chicago, Ill. on May 26. “The atrium where we had our ceremony was absolutely amazing,” Aly said. “There were floor-to-ceiling windows, arched wood ceilings, and exposed brick and pipings. We wanted a very neutral color scheme, so we chose all warm tones like blushes and creams.” The bride wore a custom-made strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and chapel-length veil, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a solid tie and Converse tennis shoes. Bridesmaids wore short black chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, garden roses, and dusty millers. The newlyweds’ favorite moment? “Our introduction into the reception ballroom,” she said. “It was breathtaking to see everything set up and see the finished product of what we worked so hard to plan. It was also great to see all of our family and friends there to celebrate with us.” Tables were decorated with white linens, sage green napkins, antique mix ‘n’ matched vases and vessels with single stems, and menu cards at each place setting. “While it’s easy to get caught up in all of the expensive details the fact of the matter is, it’s only one day,” Aly said. “It was fun to add a little do-it-yourself details to help save.”

Marci and Paul were married at Chamard Vineyards in Clinton, Conn. “As we started to plan we noticed a theme coming together,” Marci said. “A celebration of Connecticut! When I first moved to Connecticut, I thought it was only temporary, a stop on the way to wherever else I was going, but it grows on you. No place has quite the combination of city and country, the ocean and the woods, the well-to-do and the down-to-earth. Best of all – it is the place where Paul and I met each other and have so many great memories.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a gray sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a striped yellow tie and bulldog cufflinks. The outdoor ceremony included a unity candle and a bubble processional. Guests enjoyed sipping on signature cocktails and eating hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour as they wrote down their best advice for the newlyweds on questionnaire cards. Inside the tented reception, tables were decorated with centerpieces of peonies, dahlias, and scabiosa pods, chalkboard table numbers, and burlap runners. Notice the star on the ceiling? Bottles of wine were given out as favors and had a tag that said, “Love is like a fine wine, it only gets better with time,” and buckets were filled with s’mores bags to roast over an open fire. Yum!

Contemporary Purple Fall Loft Wedding in Canada

Posted by Caitlin on Oct 25, 2013

Nicole & John 

September 26 

Toronto, Ontario, Canada 

~~~~~~~~

From the photographer: “When I first met Nicole and John a few months before their wedding, I knew right away that we were the perfect match for each other. Their vision of an elegant and classy wedding, without any pomp and circumstance came together perfectly at 99 Sudbury, their venue of choice for the reception. Their day started off with Nicole getting ready at the Royal York hotel in downtown Toronto, followed by a Catholic ceremony at a Croatian church, and a great party at 99 Sudbury. A Croatian band, and a band from Nova Scotia played live music until well past midnight. Enjoy the photographs!” — Andreas of Photography by Andreas
