Kellie and Tyler were married at Temecula Creek Inn in Temecula, Calif. on November 30. The bride wore a sweetheart wedding gown with a lace bodice and ruffled skirt, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a plaid tie and pocket square. Not to mention her custom Converse tennis shoes! Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, ranunculuses, and dusty millers. The outdoor ceremony began just before sunset and was lit with plenty of chandeliers and string lights from trees. After the vows were said and sealed with a kiss, the newlyweds couldn’t help but show their excitement with a fist pump or two. Guests kept warm during cocktail hour with blankets, roasting marshmallows by the bonfire, and a cigar bar. A favorite moment during the reception? “Our first dance and the dancing with all of our family and friends,” Kellie said. Memories were built (and signed) onto Jenga pieces, mini bundt cakes were served as something sweet, and a grand exit was made with sparklers! “This is YOUR day,” she said. “No one else’s, so make it exactly how you want it and not how other people want it to be.”

Cindy and Ian were married at the Mission Inn Resort & Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. on March 10. The bride wore a v-neck lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with pearl earrings, necklace, and bracelet, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a white tie and black Converse tennis shoes. The bouquet and boutonniere were handmade fabric flowers shaped ranunculuses and dahlias. As the sun set, the ceremony took place overlooking an immaculate water fountain, but following, the reception took place inside the courtyard decorated with gray table linens, tall centerpieces with mini chalkboard table numbers, and votive candles. How cool is their ombre cake? Guests enjoyed drinking and dancing underneath the cafe lights and sent the newlyweds off with bubbles as the night came to an end!

Jillian and Kim were married along Bond Street Pier followed by a reception at Admiral Fell Inn in Baltimore, Md. on September 28. “Kim and I met [at our venue] at a New Year’s Eve party hosted by a mutual acquaintance and had our first kiss on the balcony at midnight,” Jillian said. The bride wore a sweetheart floral applique bodice wedding gown with a tiered skirt, accessorized with drop dangling earrings and finger-tip length veil, while the groom wore a black suit with a bow tie. Since his alma mater is University of Maryland, College Park, Kim had his groomsmen wear socks with the state’s flag’s logo on them. Now, that’s how you show school pride! Before the ceremony, they decided to have a first look. “It was such an intimate moment seeing each other for the first time on our wedding day, and we have so many amazing pictures of it,” she said. “We wrote letters to each other instead of having readings during the ceremony. My brother read my letter to Kim, and Kim’s best man read his letter to me.” The reception followed with tables decorated with tall curly willow centerpieces accented with wine bottle table numbers. In lieu of a guestbook, guests were asked to sign an old wine barrel, and “wedding jams” CD favors were given out at the end of the night, so they could continue the dancing at home.

Lisa and Chris were married at the Inn at West Settlement in Roxbury, N.Y. on August 17. “The view was stunning in every direction,” Lisa said. Especially of the Catskill Mountain peaks and spring-fed pond! As guests arrived to the ceremony, they were asked to “Today, two families become one, pick a seat not a side.” The bride walked down the aisle wearing a v-neck wedding gown, accessorized with an ivory sash, while the groom stood waiting next to the fabric-draped chuppah wearing a dark gray suit, accessorized with no tie. “The sound of everyone we love laughing and cheering” was the newlyweds’ favorite moment. The reception followed inside the barn lit with paper lanterns. Tables were decorated with vintage vessels and vases filled with wildflower bouquets and even every chair was different. A do-it-yourself photo booth was setup for Instagram. Of course, the hashtag was #lisaandchris4eva. In lieu of a guest book, names and messages were written on hearts and dropped into a frame to hang in their home.

Sydney and Alex were married at the Inn at Huntington Creek in Rock Hall, Md. on June 22. “We loved the land surrounding our venue,” Sydney said. “Because [it] included an inn and several cottages, we were able to have our ceremony and reception at the same place, and we were able to stay there all weekend with several of our family and friends.” The bride wore a tulle J.Crew wedding gown, accessorized with a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. Her bouquet featured bright pink peonies! “I really loved experiencing our first look, and then being able to have Alex to myself for an hour before the ceremony and party started,” she said.  “I had a lot of excited energy, but was able to relax a little more when we were together!” The tented reception was decorated with blue table runners, napkins, and utensil place cards at each setting. Guests were asked to leave their thumbprint on a piece of bicycle artwork along with well wishes and advice for the newlyweds. Their favorite part? “Dancing in the barn after dinner was incredible!” Sydney said. “Also, we had a pleasant summer breeze blowing across the dance floor that kept everyone cool and excited about dancing.”
