Mary and Cody were married at the YMCA’s Camp Kon-O-Kwee in Fombell, Penn. on September 14. “I can’t say enough about how much I loved our venue,” Mary said. “It was by far my favorite that we looked at, and I am so glad I found it! We wanted an outdoor/indoor space that could accommodate all our 300 guests without being crowded, but still feel intimate.” The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown, accessorized with chapel-length veil, while the groom wore a casual gray button-up and pants along with a tan vest and tie. Before the ceremony, instead of a first look, they chose to exchange gifts without peeking! “I was standing in a clearing in the woods waiting to walk down the aisle with my mom, dad, brothers, and all of my bridesmaids, and everything seemed so calm though,” she said. “I thought I would be really emotional and nervous, but I was just really really excited! The last six years had led me to that moment, and for just a few seconds timed seemed to stand still. I couldn’t wait to marry the man I knew was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.” Following the vows, guests were asked to choose a colored goblet glass to use for the night (just look at the massive collection!) and mark with their names for cocktails, tables were named after cities, states, and countries traveled to and from, and the fare? A gourmet build-your-own taco bar and seven cakes. “Of all the elements in our wedding day, the flowers are at the top of the list as one of my favorites,” Mary said. “My family owns a flower farm, and I grew up cutting flowers in the field dreaming of the ones I would someday use in my own bouquet.” At the end of the night, everyone gathered to send the newlyweds off to their honeymoon with wish lanterns. Magical, right?

Amy and Scott were married at Gowan Brae Golf and Country Club in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada on August 24. “The outdoor location for the ceremony is what sold us on our venue,” Amy said. “All of the lush green combined with the beautiful ocean backdrop was exactly what we had envisioned for our ceremony.” She wore a light pink ruffled mermaid wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline. She accessorized with a studded sash and carried a bouquet of roses and mums. Her bridesmaids donned light gray strapless chiffon dresses with sweetheart necklines too, their bouquets were the same as the bride’s. The groom and his ‘men wore three-piece suits and accessorized with silver neckties and pink pocket squares. The reception featured long banquet tables and chairs wrapped in pretty bows, fun games, a candy buffet, and delicious square-layered cake for guests to enjoy.

Danielle and Rich were married at Brooklyn Winery in Brooklyn, N.Y. on August 18. “I had gone to Brooklyn Winery with a girlfriend one day, and they were hosting a wedding and thought, ‘Wow, what a different and interesting venue,’” Danielle said. “After we became engaged, we went to check it out more, and the place felt like it took our personalities and created an event space with it! The materials they use, their approach with food and wine, the decor — everything felt so natural to us!” Danielle walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart lace wedding gown with an illusion neckline to a string trio playing an unchained melody, while Rich stood waiting patiently wearing a classic black tuxedo and gray tie. Fun fact: They were married by the bride’s sister! “I definitely didn’t think I would cry but just the feeling of so much love and support with our closest family and friends being there made me melt,” she said. Above, hung cafe lights and garland, and below on banquet tables, was vintage china and sprigs of rosemary at each place setting. “We chose to have a dessert bar featuring our favorite Brooklyn vendors,” Danielle said. “We picked mini doughnuts from Dough based in Clinton Hill and insanely delicious pies from Butter & Scotch. We served them out with kraft take out boxes stamped with our initials and wedding date.” Their first dance? Chris Cornell’s cover song to Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You.”

Niki and Stephen were married at Sarchet Event Center in Platteville, Colo. on August 16. The bride wore a lace bodice a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of Badgley Mischka jeweled peep-toe pumps, while her bridesmaids wore turquoise dresses with illusion halter necklines. Their red bouquets featured roses and dahlias. Guests were greeted with a “You have my whole heart for my whole life” sign and paper fans to keep cool. During the outdoor ceremony underneath the garden’s gazebo, they combined different colored jars of sand into an hourglass to symbolize their unity. Portraits were then taken amongst the free range and prairie as the sun was minutes away from setting. Bonus: golden hour! You won’t want to miss the AMAZING sparkler send off too.

Melissa and Diego were married at Vrinda’s Meditation Garden in Miami, Fla. on September 10. “I always wanted to have an outdoor wedding,” Melissa said. “I love nature, and I wanted it to be at an ashram, so it was the perfect place.” Surrounded by 50 closest family and friends, the couple proclaimed their vows to each other. “During Vedic wedding ceremonies, the vows you exchange with your spouse include swearing friendship, fidelity, companionship, love, care, and to abide by them for 100 autumns,” she said. “How beautiful is that! Every word, and my husband’s look into my eyes when he was saying them to me are unforgettable.” The reception followed underneath a tent lit with lanterns. Tables were decorated with pink and orange linens and grass centerpieces. The guests’ favorite detail? The naked wedding cake with three different flavors: passion fruit, blueberry, and spirulina.
