Amy and Gregory were married at the Currahee Club in Toccoa, Ga. on October 19.  “The Currahee Club has such a magical atmosphere with beautiful views of Lake Hartwell,” Alex said. She wore a v-neck lace wedding gown and accessorized with vintage-inspired jewelry. Alex opted for a partial updo and carried a bouquet made of anemones, ranunculuses, eucalyptuses, and dusty millers. 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. Guests enjoyed a multi-layer cake adorned and were also given bubbles and sparklers to send the newlyweds off to their new life together!

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.”

Jacquelyn and Sean were married at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, Calif. on October 19. “We knew it was the one because of it’s effortless, natural beauty,” Jacquelyn said. “It felt like we were at an Italian villa.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with an illusion neckline and back, accessorized with a pair of sparkly peep-toe pumps, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a peach bow tie and pocket square to match the ‘maids in their dresses. She walked down the rose-petal aisle with her parents by each side to meet Sean. They recited their own vows that got them both teary-eyed! Guests enjoyed signature “Whisk-ie Love” and “Yu Sweet Cute-Cumber” cocktails from mason jars. Rustic farm tables were decorated with vintage books, vases and vessels filled with roses and hydrangeas and coffee bean favor bags at each place setting. “The one moment I can’t stop thinking about is when all our friends and family flooded onto the dance floor to surround us for the last song,” she said. “There was big bear hugs, high-fives, and cheers while everyone sang along to Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ at the top of our lungs.”

Andrea and Daniel were married at Desert Plantation in Woodville, Mississippi on December 15. “There were gorgeous oak trees and beautiful grounds around the cutest little plantation home,” Andrea said. “What really got me was the way the sun beamed through the branches and created this ethereal setting that was just breathtaking.” Instead of doing a first look with Daniel, Andrea had a first look with her dad. “It was a such a sweet and special moment,” she said. She wore a v-neck lace wedding gown with an illusion back, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while bridesmaids wore an array of mauve, ivory, and brown dresses, accessorized with pashmina shawls. These two lovebirds said, “I do” following praise and worship next to hanging vintage doors and chandeliers and walked back down the aisle with fake snow in the air. Reception tables were decorated with picture frames, books, pearls, and do-it-yourself flowers, and Jenga blocks were signed with well wishes to “build memories.”
