Laura and Raj were married at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, N.J. on November 17. “Raj and I have very opposite taste,” Laura said. “I am rustic, he is modern. The Westmount was the perfect balance.” She stunned in a strapless sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with chooras, or red and white bangles, which are an Indian wedding tradition. Laura’s hair was tightly curled and pinned to one side, and she carried a bouquet made of all-white roses and hydrangeas. Her bridesmaids wore navy blue chiffon floor-length dresses and carried bouquets made of light pink roses. The groom and his ‘men looked dapper in their gray suits with white vests and neck ties. There was the baraat, a processional in which the groom rides on a decorated horse to the ceremony with his family in tow. After the nuptials, the guests enjoyed an indoor reception that included, dancing and indulging in a multi-shaped cake. Yum! “It is a beautiful day where everyone you love comes to show you unconditional love and support during the biggest moment of your life,” she said.

Her bridesmaids donned gray and navy blue floor-length dresses with gentle ruching and various necklines. The groom and his ‘men wore gray suits complete with navy blue bow ties and anemone boutonnieres. “The most special moment of the day was waiting until the time of the ceremony to see my groom,” she said. “It made it that much more magical.” The indoor reception featured wooden farm tables with patterned chevron table runners and mason jar centerpieces.

Kristina and Will were married at the White Orchid Beach House in Wailea-Makena, Hawaii on October 14 — all the way from Australia. The bride wore a sweetheart ruched a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a headband in her loose curls, while the groom wore a gray vest and pants, accessorized with argyle socks. Bridesmaids looked oh-so lovely in navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of all-white roses, orchids, and calla lilies. As intimate as the ceremony was overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the reception was even more so lit with a crystal chandelier, paper lanterns, and candles. Not to mention the palm trees! Each place setting featured a “thank you” tin for guests to take home with them. Can you guess what was inside? Well, it’s a secret.

Aldrin and Mike were married at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City on February 16. “When we first arrived to the Lighthouse, it was exactly a year prior to our wedding day,” Aldrin said. “The sun filled the gorgeous venue, and the views of the Hudson were absolutely breathtaking. Mike and I had to book it!” The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s good friend, who also is a stand-up comedian. “Our guests kept complementing us on how different and personal it was,” he said. “We all laughed and cried — it was perfect.” They also placed three bottles of wine into a wooden box to open on their first, fifth, and tenth anniversaries to symbolize their unity. The reception started with their first dance to Beyonce’s “Love on Top.” “It was a great transition to what became a huge dance party,” Aldrin said. Tables were decorated with green hydrangea and pink orchid centerpieces, along with an navy blue embossed menu card at each setting. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Take a 15-minute breather in the middle of your reception  – together and alone — to soak in the day,” he said.

Jessica and Ryan were married at Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, S.C. on September 14. Rain showers passed, and skies cleared just minutes before the ceremony was to begin under the towering moss-draped oak trees overlooking Stono River. The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart fit ‘n’ flare wedding dress, accessorized with a lush bouquet of garden roses, ranunculuses, and greenery, while the groom stood there waiting in a tan three-piece suit, accessorized with a cotton boutonniere. “When the Plantation Singers began the ceremony with ‘This Little Light of Mine,’ a wave of emotion spread over me like none other I’d ever felt,” Jessica said. “I was awash with joy and love. And as they sang, I looked back and saw Ryan (though he could not see me) and was completely overwhelmed by the moment. My eyes flooded with tears. Without my father’s reassurance, I would have lost it.” The reception followed on the plantation’s porch where each table was decorated with a vintage postcard, antique set, and favor boxes filled with almonds and benne wafers. Atop the cake was two bunny rabbits!
