Wailea, HI, United States
We wanted an intimate stress-free wedding and we knew the best way to accomplish that was to have a destination wedding. Maui was the perfect choice for so many reasons. Our 43 guests enjoyed a 3-day celebration at the gorgeous Andaz Resort, which begin with a welcome reception and ended with a farewell breakfast, equipped with a full rainbow backdrop. The main event took place on the Andaz lawns, with the ocean sunset framing the event to perfection. The location, our family, friends and every single wedding detail made this one of our best days!
San Francisco, CA, United States
Our wedding was set at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall in Union Square, with Beaux-Arts architecture, that could take your breath away. The weather was cold for us, for the duration of the trip and yet strangely enough, the sun came out and it was absolutely glorious weather on the day of the wedding.
The reception was held at McCormick and Kuleto’s with PERFECT sunset views of the Bay Area. It was romantic and elegant yet fun and humbling. Surrounded by our loved ones, we were truly grateful to have such a day.

Jesse and I met in April 2013. My ride to Atlanta for the NCAA basketball national championship game fell through at the last minute. My cousin knew Jesse was planning on going around the same time and set it up for us to ride down together. We spent 6 hours in the car as complete strangers and from there we never looked back! Jesse proposed on Christmas day 2014. We got married on September 26th at the Felt Mansion in Holland, MI. Our family and friends traveled from all over to celebrate with us. It was the best day ever!

Carson and Jennifer hate going to traditional weddings — they’re typically pretty boring to them. So, when it came time to plan their own they made sure to be true to themselves and give all of their guests a rockin’ good time. Gold glitter, pure white floral, walking down the aisle in Hayley Paige to Van Halen’s cover of Pretty Woman, a cover band wearing mullet wigs, a cupcake tower dusted with gold all in the gorgeous House of Blues Dallas…it was everything a non-traditional wedding should be – FUN!
Highlands Ranch, CO, United States
Guests could find details of Ashleigh and Brian in everything — from the rustic, outdoor setting with glamorous, vintage details. Ashleigh and Brian wanted their wedding to feel like a fancy family BBQ with great food and a great party…and that’s exactly what they got. But the moment that stood out to Ashleigh and Brian more than any other moment during the celebration was when they were able to see each other for the first time.
Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Since we met, Steamboat, CO has always held a special place in our heart. Given that, we knew it was where we should marry. The scenery was unbelievable and the day everything we had been dreaming of. I knew my dress was the one from the minute I tried it on. A bit unexpected for the location, but so very “me.
Coral Gables, FL, United States
We wanted an over the top formal wedding. We were both in graduate school on opposite sides of the country for 75% of our relationship and this was our big night. We had family and friends from all over the country. We were all about glitz and glamour and it was the night of our dreams!

5-2-15 was picture perfect on every level–sunny, 75, and the most gorgeous sunset gracing the NC Yadkin Valley skyline. Rebecca & Kevin were the first couple to be wed at Shelton Vineyards in NC as this was an important location in their love story. Rebecca, a native NC belle, & Kevin, an OH transplant, wanted their wedding to be outdoors, intimate amongst their closest friends & family, and one big party—which is exactly what they accomplished! The ceremony was held over a pond on the vineyard & the reception immediately followed in a beautifully decorated tent overseeing the lush vines.

Kristin and Thomas both attended The Ohio State University. They met Junior year when Tom became Kristin’s neighbor & their friendship turned in to an amazing relationship.

The reception was held at one of the most unique locations, The Towers, which is a historic brick building built over a road and overlooks the beautiful Narragansett beach. They couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!

Notre Dame, IN, United States
We met in college. I went to Saint Mary’s College and Adam went to the University of Notre Dame, across the street. It only seemed natural that our wedding be where we met, fell in love, and our love story began. Our ceremony was in a chapel in the dorm I lived in on Saint Mary’s campus, and our reception was in a ballroom on the campus of Notre Dame. It was an elegant affair with a touch of sparkle through our jewelry, centerpieces, candles, and lighting. It was beautiful, emotional, and magical.
Indianapolis, IN, United States
My husband and I met at Indiana University during our sophomore year. We dated throughout college and then had a long distance relationship from Chicago to Indianapolis for 2 years. He moved to Indiana to be with me and my family and our little Shih Tzu! We got engaged during a trip to Cancun, Mexico on our 5 year anniversary. Our interfaith ceremony and reception were held at the Conrad Indianapolis Hotel. Our wedding colors were emerald, blush, and gold to reflect the spring season. We danced the night away with glow sticks and had a confetti canon send off!
Astoria, NY, United States
Kim and Frank both grew up in Centereach and went to middle school, high school, and college together (and even made their communions together!). But they did not become friends until eleven years ago, during their time at the University at Albany. Kim and Frank were good friends during their time at Albany, they got along really well, but never even considered dating. That all changed when they both moved to Astoria in the spring of 2009. They have been together even since, and the rest is history!!
Long Branch, NJ, United States
Our wedding day was all we could ever imagine and MORE! A sunny October day, some amazing friends and family, a beautiful venue and a killer band really made our day and night one we will never forget. My dress was not only stunning, it was so comfortable I didn’t even want to take it off.
We decided on an intimate wedding in Southern Spain with our closest friends. The theme was rustic and romantic, with a ceremony in the grounds of an incredible Hacienda. I had fallen in love with my dress about a week after we got engaged and even though it was in a boutique over 200 miles away I knew I had to have it! Lawrence had no idea I was going to wear blush pink, yet the suit he had handmade had a blush pink waistcoat which perfectly matched my dress – it was like it was meant to be ♥

All week we were told that there was going to be a storm on our wedding day. We were getting married at Martha Clara Vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island outside in front of the Vines so naturally this made us a little nervous. The weather was beautiful and sunny in the morning. Come ceremony time the storm came in fast but literally split up right over the Vineyard. A few scattered rain drops and gray clouds in the background made for some gorgeous photos. I guess we already have all the luck we need.
Cleveland, OH, United States
Our wedding was simple, elegant and fun! It was all about being with loved ones and enjoying the celebration. The day was filled with happy tears, good food and great music. Everybody danced the night away!
Walt Disney World , FL, United States
My husband and I met when we were 14 years old. On the day we were married we had been together for 14 years. We both grew up in “Disney” families and shared a love for all things Disney. So you could say that getting married in Disney World was always part of the plan. It took over 2 years to plan our wedding and make sure that everyone we wanted to share it with could attend. With about 200 guest in attendance it was a once in a lifetime experience; one that our friends and family would cherish forever.

Scott & Tami met freshman year of college but didn’t start dating until they both moved to Boston five years later. When Scott proposed on a pier overlooking the Boston skyline, they couldn’t imagine saying “I Do” anywhere else than in their favorite city! Scott & Tami were married at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston’s South End and held their reception at the Taj Boston hotel on a beautiful September day. Tami’s Lazaro dress was perfect for the city wedding she dreamed of and for dancing the night away!

We had our fairytale wedding at the beautiful Hampton Cove Wedding Plantation, just outside of Huntsville, Alabama where we both grew up.

After a long 3 year engagement due to schooling, Andrew and I were finally married on a beautiful spring day and it was more than we could have ever imagined.

Palos Verdes Estates , CA, United States
Our Story best told at vimeo.com/129020861
We were married in the beautiful Neighborhood church of Palos Verdes Estates. The guests overlooked the bluffs into the water as they sat in the church. The party continued at Trump National Golf Club LA. Cocktail hour included taking photos in the photo booth, and getting portraits drawn by the character artists. The sun set in bright oranges as the guests peered into to never-ending ocean. The centerpieces were jaw dropping, the candy bar had everything you could imagine. We danced all night with our light up personalized glow sticks.

Geoff and Ashlee are a great couple because they are completely opposite, which their friends often make fun of them about. Their relationship is strong is that they support each other’s dreams and goals and push one another to achieve them. The couple married on a gorgeous day in September. The wedding ceremony took place at the St. Rose Catholic Church and the reception was outdoors in a clear top tent in the beautiful backyard of the home Ashlee grew up in. Ashlee and Geoff danced the night away with 250 of their dearest family members and friends. Bridesmaids:

In order to really get an idea of our love story, I felt it was best for me to give you my written wedding vows:
Jason and I have been together for almost 10 years (yes, really that long) & through those 10 yrs, I’ve been doing my homework (being the type A person I am). Being an oncology nurse you get to meet a lot of couples going through a very dark time in their lives. Some were together for 10 yrs, some 20, and some even 60 years! And I asked them all the same question. “What is your secret to a happy & successful marriage?” And boy did I get some great answers! From never go to bed angry, to keep “dating” each other, make each laugh, to having separate bathrooms…I listened and I promise to try to do all of those things and more. But the best piece of advice that stuck with me was to marry your best friend, because if you marry your best friend- you will never feel alone, you will always be important and you will always feel loved. And I stand here today so happy and at peace, because I am marrying my best friend. And as your best friend and now wife, I vow that you will never feel alone, you will always be important and you will always feel loved, always and forever.
