Cristina and Alex were married at Estancia Culinaria in Redland, Fla. on February 16. “We wanted the ceremony and reception to take place at the same venue (and for my bridesmaids and I to be able to get ready there, too),” Cristina said. “We wanted to be outdoors to take advantage of the ‘winter’ weather, we needed a place that would allow us to bring in our home-brewed beer, we didn’t want a place with very strict limits as to when we’d have to end the party, and most importantly, we needed a place that would let me bring my dog, Bailey. Our first visit was so magical that we instantly knew it had to be the place.” The bride wore a sweetheart mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a finger-tip length veil, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a pink tie. Bridesmaids and groomsmen were able to choose their own dresses and suits! “My favorite moment was walking down the aisle to the ‘Throne Room’ theme-song from Star Wars,” she said. “However, I think we both agree that we’ve never had more fun in a single day ever. It really never happens that you have all of your family and friends in one place.” Following the nuptials, the reception was held underneath a tent. Tables were decorated with wooden ranunculus, peonies, baby’s breath, and roses centerpieces in mix ‘n’ matched vessels and vases and dinosaurs atop wooden slabs. At each place setting, there was a favor box filled with pretzels, but the dessert display had even more — cake, cupcakes, candies, etc. Guests’ entertainment? “The photo booth!” Cristina said. “So much fun. Everyone loved it. We made our own backdrop to kind of match the color scheme, and it turned out great.”

Christie and Mark were married in a traditional Catholic mass ceremony at St. Vincent de Paul Church followed by a reception at James Leary Flood Mansion in San Francisco, Calif. on December 28. “We ended up picking our wedding venue really quickly because the moment we walked in, we were so blown away that we couldn’t even look at anything else,” Christie said. “We could imagine our big day there, and it just felt right. Also, the view of the Golden Gate Bridge didn’t hurt!” She wore a sweetheart lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with an off-the-shoulder overlay and ivory sash, while the bridesmaids blushed in their long pink chiffon dresses. Groomsmen looked dapper in classic black tuxedos, accessorized with bow ties. “Our favorite moment was when we said our vows to each other,” she said. “A wedding is just one day, but those vows will last a lifetime.” The glamorous reception featured tall candelabra centerpieces overflowing with hydrangeas and roses, bells were placed at each setting with a guests’ name, and a box of chocolates too. The dance floor was even lit with snowflakes! “Larry Lynch and The Mob really brought the house down, and everyone was dancing all night long,” Christie said. “See everyone have so much fun really made my day.”

Gold Chevron Summer Garden Wedding in Arkansas

Samantha & Jud

July 20  

Fayetteville, Arkansas 


From the bride:  “My overall goal for the day was to create a relaxed and fun day. We used the colors orange, light pink, cream and gold to help set a warm mood and environment. For the groom’s cake, we served sugar cookies from Great American Cookie Company. Anyone who knows Jud well knows he LOVES those cookies! I had a cute signature tree made on Etsy that we used as the guestbook. One of my favorite moments in the wedding process was probably our playlist. Jud and I picked out songs to play before the musician played. It reminded us of all the concerts we have been to together. I loved everything about the wedding day! I had a great time getting ready with my mom, sister and closest friends and taking pictures with Jud even though it was HOT. I loved being on my dad’s arm as he walked me down the aisle. I had fun singing and dancing with Jud and friends at the receptions. We also had a great time going out in Dickson with our friends after the reception! All in all we had an amazing and carefree time!”
