Winter Park, FL, United States
We met in high school but did not date until after college. We remained friends and started officially dating after we rung in the NY on Beale Street in Memphis, TN. We immediately became each other’s soulmates and knew we were determined to be together forever. At the time, I was in Tallahassee finishing up my degree at Florida State University while Joey was living in Memphis starting his career. We both then reached a new beginning in our careers and headed to Orlando, FL where we now call home. He proposed in the privacy of our own home during the Christmas holidays of 2011. We married March 2013 at a historic home called Casa Feliz in Winter Park, FL and had the best day of our life!

I wanted an antique-looking lace dress. My mom came for the weekend and after one exhausting day shopping, I almost gave up. The first dress I tried on the second day was “the one.” I got teary, and even my mom (who had been disagreeing with me) said it was perfect!
For the bridesmaids, I wanted muted colors to represent fall without being too Thanksgivingy. Because Nate and his groomsmen all hate wearing suits, I chose khakis- with a vest for him and suspenders for the guys.
Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Jenna and Nathan tied the knot on the beautiful beaches of Playa del Carmen. Everything was amazing, including the dress! This dress was the perfect combination of elegant and beach-y.

Our wedding was hosted on May 4, 2013 at the Yale Club in NYC.

We then met back up with our bridal party at the Yale Club and took photos in Grand Central. Our ceremony was hosted in the library at The Yale Club and our reception in their Grand Ballroom.

Our wedding was a beautiful and classic San Francisco day; full of fog! We would not have had it any other way in our city by the bay. We were blessed to be surrounded by our family friends in our church ceremony at Saint Ignatius Catholic Church. We wanted our wedding to be timeless and simple and on my search for my dress those were the words I used. When I found my dress I knew instantly that it was the one for me. It made me feel beautiful and I was literally glowing.

Doug and I got engaged last May and began wedding planning pretty quickly. We decided on a winter wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Intercontinental Hotel Chicago, and I was dress shopping soon after. My Tara Keely 2200 was the third dress I tried, and I loved it from the second I put it on. On 2/16/13, we had over 200 loved ones from coast to coast celebrate with us and dance the night away. From the venue, to the flowers, to the band…we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding!

Boston, MA, United States
Anthony and I went on a blind date in the winter of 2010 and I never could have imagined how my life would instantly change from that day forward. Anthony was so genuine, sweet, honest, smart, and funny; I had never met anyone like him. Just a few days shy of our one year anniversary Anthony proposed with a stunning ring hidden in my Christmas stocking. We decided to have our wedding in Boston, the city we call home, and knew that the State Room would be the perfect place. On a beautiful, sunny, Sunday in January, Anthony and I exchanged vows in front of our closest family and friends AND in front of the most magnificent view in all of Boston. It was an unforgettable day, filled with lots of laughs, tears (happy, of course), smiles, and most importantly- lots of dancing!
Charleston, SC, United States
Jason and I got married at Lowndes Grove Plantation on 9.22.12. We incorprated both Southern Chic with modern New York designs to incorprate my southern upbringing with his New York lifestyle. Our wedding was focused on the details. Our custom “B” monogram and invitation design was transposed onto the cake, the dance floor, and even fabrics that lined the bars and tied the cocktail tables. FAVORITE MOMENT- we did a trash the dress photo shoot the morning after our big day

Peter and I have known each other our whole lives growing up in Duxbury, MA. We were married at Castle Hill in Newport,RI on a perfect summer day surrounded by all our family and close friends. It took me three dresses and three bridal shops to find the perfect dress. I knew I wanted lace, with straps and a fitted gown that hit me in all the right curvy places. It was an instant love affair and I never wanted to take it off. We will never forget that perfectly, magical day that ended firework show!

Everything came together PERFECTLY.

Howell, NJ, United States
We were married on a warm summer afternoon in a Catholic Church surrounded by our loving family and friends. The theme of the wedding was ‘vintage glam’ and this was accented throughout the details and decor, from crystal earrings and bangles, pretty parasols, pink and off-white garden roses filled galvanized buckets to chandelier-like table centerpieces. Our reception was held at a Country Club, and while our guests enjoy the cocktail hour on a outdoor balcony overlooking the green, we enjoyed our alone time in the surrounding gardens. It truly was a dream come true.This was the fifth dress I tried on and I knew it was “the one”. I could just tell as soon as I stepped into it and I did not want to take it off! The crystal and bugle beaded bodice inspired me and became our theme throughout the wedding – as soon as I said “yes to the dress”! I selected the ivory silk ribbon and had my seamstress fold it over to make a thinner sash. I wanted to show off as much of the beautiful crystal bodice as I could! The sash definitely completed the look. My bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions dress style 5226. The luminescent chiffon really shimmered in the summer sun and my bridesmaids felt so comfortable in them. It was a win-win!
Bretton Woods, NH, United States
Kevin and I live in Boston, but we knew we wanted to get married in the mountains. As Kevin and I rounded the corner and saw the Mt Washington Hotel we knew nothing would ever surpass this place. With lots of family traveling from London, South Africa and Australia, it was important for us to have a place where our families wouldn’t get bored.
Our day was absolutely perfect. We had a beautiful, warm day, and the beautiful backdrop of the mountains. We were surrounded by everyone we loved, and we could not have asked for more.

Weaverville, NC, United States
Based on a love for the outdoors, our wedding was set in the rolling hills of the western North Carolina mountains. With family and friends gathered on a gorgeous Fall day, we allowed the farm property and natural backdrop to shine in their own right. Minimal touches of organic décor and warm lighting plus DIY accents, such as wrapped mason jars and vintage-inspired signage, rounded out our interpretation of rustic romance and down-home coziness.
