Roshal and Zwade were married at Half Moon in Montego Bay, Jamaica on December 8. “I was born and raised in Jamaica and always dreamed of getting married in my home country,” Roshal said. “When we visited [the resort], we knew it was the place. The scenery was quintessentially Caribbean with the palm trees in the foreground, and the clear blue ocean in the distance.” The ceremony took place under a pavilion, where the bride wore an a-line wedding gown with a lace illusion back and the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with Burberry socks! “I loved that we wrote our own vows,” she said. “We were both nervous about it, but were so glad we ultimately made the decision.” The reception tent was decorated with luscious blue and green arrangements, rhinestone napkin rings, candles, and decorative branches dangling with crystals. Their favorite moment? The first dance. “We had put in the practice, and were ready to show off our new moves,” Roshal said. “But somehow in the moment, we forgot everything. I still remember when we looked at each other and realized we were going to wing it. It was so funny, we had to try so hard not to laugh as we improvised our way through.”

Lauren and Michael were married in downtown Columbia, S.C. on December 29. After searching for the perfect urban vibe, they settled with 701 Whaley, a loft known for it’s high ceilings, concrete floors, and exposed brick walls. The bride wore a custom sweetheart a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a faux fur stole, rose gold drop diamond earrings, and Badgley Mischka peep-toe heels. Bridesmaids looked simple yet classic in their little black dresses, accessorized with emerald pashmina shawls. “My favorite moment of the day was when we had our first look,” Lauren said. “There was so much anticipation, and I was beginning to feel a little overwhelmed, but once I saw Michael, it was like none of that mattered. I was right where I wanted to be!” Following the traditional church ceremony, the reception began, and boy was it beautiful. Just look at those black and white striped linens, pomegranates at each place setting, chalkboard mural, and paper flower wall behind the cake!

Mary and Stephen were married at The Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, Penn. on February 9. “Having a wedding indoors in a greenhouse was the closest I could come to the outdoors in February,” Mary said. She wore an Alvina Valenta wedding gown with an illusion neckline, accessorized with a faux fur stole, while her bridesmaids wore long black J.Crew dresses, accessorized with brown faux fur stoles. “During the ceremony, I carried the prayer book my maternal grandmother carried when she got married in 1947,” she said. “She had hand covered the book with material from her wedding gown and hand tied ribbons to it.” The newlyweds entered the reception to the band playing the theme song from Star Wars. “All our family and friends had gathered on the dance floor to welcome us in,” Mary said. “We weren’t really sure what to expect, but that moment was so warm and exhilarating. One moment we will never forget!” Tables were decorated with baby’s breath in blue mason jars atop tree woodcuts and a sprig of Princess Pine at each place setting, which ended up being attached to each guests’ lapel by the end of the night.

Preet and Inder were married at the Sikh Cultural Society in Queens, N.Y. on January 26 followed by a reception at the Hilton Long Island/Huntington in Melville, N.Y. on January 27. Despite the snow, the couple didn’t shy away from taking outdoor pictures in their bright attire and opulent jewels. We couldn’t help but notice the intricate henna on the bride’s hands and feet too, which is traditionally conducted the night before during the Mehendi ritual. The reception’s ceiling was uplit with the couple’s names, walls were uplit with polka dots, and tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces. All in all, a luxurious-inspired affair!
