Maggie and Matt were married at the bride’s parent’s home in Waupaca, Wis. on June 23. The bride wore a v-neck a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of lace TOMS shoes, while the groom wore a white button-up shirt, khaki pants, suspenders, accessorized with a checkered bow tie. Even their dog, Lunchbox, had a matching one! Bridesmaids wore handsewn vintage-inspired floral dresses from Etsy and carried organic daisy, billy ball, and greenery bouquets. Guests were greeted with wooden sign posts that directed them to either take a short walk or golf cart ride up the hill to the ceremony.  Maggie was escorted down the aisle with both her mother and father as a guitar was played and the best part? The newlyweds’ priceless reactions once they were announced husband and wife! The reception followed inside the barn decorated with bunting banners, blue mason jars, mix ‘n’ matched china, and vegetarian fare such as black bean and roasted pepper frittatas with warm mango vinaigrette. Bonus: the cake had M&M’s on it.

Natalie and Douglas were married at Holimont Ski Resort in Ellicottville, N.Y. on September 1. “Holimont is a private ski resort, near the area we got engaged,” Natalie said. “From having the entire space to getting married at the top of the mountain (ferrying guests to the ceremony via chairlifts) to the gorgeous woodwork and floor to ceiling windows inside, we absolutely adored the overall flow.” The bride wore a sweetheart beaded bodice wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a feather hair pin in her updo and a birdcage veil, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with an argyle tie. Bridesmaids and junior bridesmaids wore gray chiffon and cream lace dresses and carried dried flower arrangements. The vows took place in a traditional handfasting unity, but the processional and recessional music choices were super fun,  including The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. The newlyweds’ favorite part of the reception? “The menu — British/American fusion — passed canapes, Pimm’s cocktail toast, five-course tasting, mini cupcakes in a variety of flavors, and s’mores bar,” she said. “Our favors were custom koozies, and a caricature artist too!”

Tricia and Dave were married at Stone Bridge Farms in Cullman, Ala. on February 20 — a Wednesday! “It had a beautiful rustic interior, combined with a dreamy Southern landscape,” Tricia said. “Their all-inclusive service was important to us as we were planning the wedding in a different country (I was backpacking through Europe) and state (he lived in New York).” The bride wore an a-line wedding gown with lace straps, while bridesmaids wore gray dresses with illusion necklines. “I loved the little personalities in my wedding outfit,” she said. “Particularly, the yellow buttons that my mum sewed ontp [my white peacoat] the night before. . .I treasure the crocheted ensemble made by our good friend and owner of Fiction Stitches, who made the girls’ cowls, plus the cardigan and that gorgeous hooded poncho for her children, the flower girl and ring bearer.” Guests were greeted inside with a sign that said, “Yay! You’re here! If you’re feeling a little chilly, please wrap your hands around a warm cup of hot chocolate. . . Mmmm.” As Tricia walked down the aisle, everything slowed down, the door swung open, and she had the biggest grin on her face, followed by tears. “There’s a photo of my husband wiping his eye at that moment, and he still maintains to this day that he was ‘scratching it.’” Tricia said. The reception was lit with hanging mason jars and votive candles and decorated with burlap table runners and centerpieces filled with yellow ranunculuses, dahlias, roses, and succulents. The entertainment and desserts? A do-it-yourself photo booth complete with props and cupcakes!

Jenny and Christian were married at Malaparte in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 20. “Malaparte had everything we were looking for, but the venue’s location was key!” Jenny said. “It is located just two blocks from where we live, so we walked to our wedding.” The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart ball gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom stood waiting, wearing a black suit, accessorized with a gray tie. Jenny’s favorite moment? “Standing at the altar and holding Christian’s hands, with everything else a blur but knowing that that moment was the beginning of our lives together,” she said. The reception followed inside the the 6th story of the TIFF Bell Lightbox with floor-to-ceiling cityscape views. Did you notice their ceremony was outside in an amphitheatre? Tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces featuring yellow flowers, floating candles, and chewy lime sugar cookies at each place setting, which served as favors. “It was really important to us to highlight customs from my Chinese background,” Jenny said. “We had a tea ceremony, lion dance, and table-to-table toasting during dinner.” The cake was also a hit! It had two different flavors: passion fruit with fresh berries and salted caramel chocolate. Yum!

Megan and David were married at Rocky River Vineyards in Charlotte, N.C. on September 28. “[It's] such a beautiful, tranquil place that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere,” Megan said. “We were so happy to find a place with this atmosphere that wasn’t too far outside the city. We wanted to have our ceremony and reception at the same location and this venue offered that opportunity as well as a place for the bridal party to get ready.” On the day of the wedding, the weather was perfect, no rain. Every bride’s dream right? Megan walked down the aisle wearing a lace wedding gown with an illusion neckline and keyhole back, carrying a do-it-yourself bouquet. “I loved all the pops of red,” she said. “Red is both of our favorite color, so I was excited to use lots of [it] in our wedding — my shoes, David’s tie, bridesmaid dresses, etc.” Her favorite moment? The first look. “I was so nervous all day up until the moment we saw each other,” Megan said. “It was such a special part of the day to have some time with just the two of us.”
