Merri and Peter traveled all the way from New York City for their destination wedding at Phillippi Estate Park in Sarasota, Fla. on October 26.  The bride wore a sweetheart drop-waisted wedding gown accented with crystal beading, while the groom wore a black suit and bow tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short and long dresses in various shades from blush to beige and champagne to gold. Guests were greeted at the Edson Keith Mansion’s property with a Brooklyn Brewery biergarten welcome area, complete with local brews, lagers, ales, and IPA’s, but were soon thereafter advised to take a seat underneath the moss-draped oak tree as it got closer to sunset. Notice the newlyweds’ reaction once they were announced husband and wife? Priceless. The reception followed inside the sunroom decorated with silver vase centerpieces and wine bottle table numbers and lit with chandeliers. The dessert display featured six Momofuko Milk Bar wedding cakes that were flown in! Yes, that’s right. No one could resist those unique flavors of banana, pretzel, pineapple upside down, and chocolate chip.

Christian and Evan were married at Newhall Mansion in Piru, Calif. on April 5. “It took our breathes away the first time we saw it!” Christian said. The bride wore a sweetheart drop-waisted trumpet wedding gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a black tie. Since they wanted to stick to their pink, gold, and hint of turquoise color scheme, bridesmaids wore satin pink dresses and carried peony, rose, and anemone bouquets. Notice the “something blue” brooch on Christian’s bouquet? “Everyone loves the little details,” she said. “It was my favorite thing about our wedding.” Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Choose a seat, not a side. We’re all family once the knot is tied.” The couple said their “I do’s” under a giant oak tree draped in white fabric. The reception followed with dinner and dancing on stage with the band, which just so happened to be the highlight of the night. And no one left on an empty stomach because Krispy Kreme doughnuts were served as late night snacks. Yum!

Desiree and Michael were married at the historic Gale Mansion in Minneapolis, Minn. on October 5. Despite it raining off and on, the couple used it to their advantage by taking portraits with umbrellas. Since Desiree works for a publishing company, she was inspired by poetry as her theme. A chalkboard greeted guests with a quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald, “I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything,” bundles of their favorite books were used as centerpieces, and the cake was hand-iced with their vows to each other. The most significant part? The bride wearing her mother’s original wedding dress but with a twist — the sleeves were taken off, and the lace and buttons were kept on — and accessorized with a birdcage veil.
