Natalie and Ian were married at Carondelet House in Los Angeles, Calif.  on March 23. “We went to countless venues and loved them all, but when I walked into Carondelet House, I had the same feeling I had when I found my dress,” Natalie said. “This place is so beautifully decorated down to the last detail. It had so much character and charm from the chandeliers to the vintage art. It didn’t need additional decor to fill the space. It spoke for itself.” The bride wore a tulle fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a mint tie. Floral arrangements featured roses, plenty of succulents, and hydrangeas. After the newlyweds were pronounced husband and wife, guests were asked to toss confetti and shout hooray! Our favorite portraits, you may ask? The ones above with their pup Baxter. Mixologists created signature whiskey ginger drinks especially for their cocktail style menu, and almost every detail was handmade from the signs, glitter dipped mason jars, and feather trimmed stirrers.

Megan and Christopher were married on the bride’s farm near Starved Rock State Park, Ill. “We looked at a few different places, but when we were finally ready to make a decision, I knew I wanted to get married where I grew up, where we fell in love and where Christopher proposed,” Megan said. “It now means even more to us.” The bride wore a one-shoulder Lazaro ruffled wedding gown, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls. “The genuine shock and excitement when Christopher saw me for the first time that day literally took his breath away,” she said. “It was more amazing than I ever dreamed.” The ceremony took place under a big oak tree decorated with ribbons and paper lanterns. Guest sat in wooden pews and kept cool with umbrellas while the couple exchanged handwritten vows. As they recessed down the aisle, a flute ensemble played as confetti was thrown. Cocktails were served in mason jars, vintage couches served as comfy seats, and lanterns lit the entire backyard. The tented reception featured a family photo display, table numbers wrapped in twine, and the cake atop a tree stump!

Trish and Joel were married on a warm summer day at The Manor House in Littleton, Col. “We loved nearly everything about The Manor House, from the scenery to the charm of the house, and especially the service we received from the staff,” Trish said. “Even though the day went by quickly, we were able to spend plenty of time with our family and loved ones too.” Trish walked down the aisle holding back tears as she approached Joel standing behind a dramatic backdrop of Deep Creek Canyon. “We both will never forget the look on each other’s faces,” she said. The tented reception featured a gray and yellow color scheme. Check out those tall floral arrangements and lemons! Besides dancing, guests enjoyed playing corn hole and posing in front of the photo booth with props.

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We had looked at so many venues; they all began to run together. I wanted something beautiful and cost-friendly, and the options in Charlottesville were limited. One evening, when we weren’t really looking specifically for a venue, my husband came across The American Hotel, and I fell in love! We went to look at it the following week and booked it that day. The hotel was perfect for our style and personalities and in our budget! 

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. My dress – I only tried on dresses once so I knew I had to pick something that day! Once I tried it on, I knew nothing else could top it! It was discontinued and just happened to be my exact size and on clearance! I did not even need alterations!

2. Guest Tree – I saw the idea on Pinterest and fell in love with the idea. We had every guest sign a leaf to place on the tree, and when it was all full, we framed it, and it has became a centerpiece in our home! 

3. Grooms Cuff Links – Music is a huge part of my husband’s life, and as special touch, I bought him music note cuff links. It was a small touch but something that make his rented tux more customized to him!

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The moment I can’t stop thinking about is the moment when we were saying our vows, and Ryan took out a handkerchief and wiped my tears away.  It was truly a picture of his love for me, and it will forever be a cherished memory of mine.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

Our maid of honors’ and best man’s speeches. One of my sisters did a rap, and it was absolutely hilarious. My other sister’s speech was so heartfelt that she started crying. The best man’s speech was perfect – thoughtful and loving, yet funny too.  I felt every possible emotion at one time; we were on cloud nine!
