This DIY Country Wedding is filled with lots of vintage touches and details. So many of the details of Lori & Matt’s day were DIY that she and her mother put so much work into. Even the posts for the flowers during the ceremony were old bedposts that previously belonged to her grand parents. This wedding had such great pops of color and DIY Country wedding decor. We love the bridemaids dresses and the cute cowboy boots the bride wore. Thank you to Heba Salama Photography for submitting this fun pictures.
Today we bring you a Rincon Beach Club Wedding that is full of lots of details and fleur de lis. With feathers, signature cocktails and bright colors this wedding looked like a good time.

Erin and Wesley became a combined family on their wedding day. They have a little baby girl together and on the wedding day, Erin became stepmother to Wes’s daughter. The day was filled with lots of emotion and love. We love beach weddings and we love this Rincon Beach Club wedding.Thank you to Bycherry Photography for sharing this.

Today we bring you a Hammock Beach Resort Wedding. Paul Rovinsky had a job opening at his medical sales company and Jen Van Kirk was one of his applicants. When Jen, a pretty and tall blonde, arrived for the job interview Paul couldn’t stop smiling and he knew it was love at first site. Jen was hired for the job position and the two quickly became close friends through working together. After two years they decided to act on their feelings for one another and they started dating. After two years of dating, conversations were starting to come up about Jen moving to Florida for work. Paul knew Jen was the one he wanted to spend his life with and he didn’t want her to make the move without him by her side. The week before Jen was planning on moving Paul took her on a date to the restaurant where they had their first date. Paul nervously got on one knee and pulled out the beautiful diamond engagement ring he had picked out for her. Paul expressed his love for her and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. With tears starting to stream down Jen’s face she joyously said yes and the two moved down to Florida together shortly after. They decided on a Hammock Beach Resort wedding in Palm Coast, FL. Paul is extremely thankful that he chose to interview Jen for that open position. Jen’s favorite detail about the wedding was the fabulous decor but also the fact that her wedding wasn’t ruined by hurricane Sandy. Thank you to A Magic Moment Photographer for sharing this adorable wedding.

Sally and Brady not only had a beautiful modern country wedding in Texas this past summer but they are a beautiful couple as well! Sally and Brady were friends in high school, went their separate ways and later had a chance meeting which led to their engagement at the horse races. Thank you to Two Blue Shoes Photography for sharing this gorgeous wedding. Here is a copy of their story that was published in the Dallas Morning News about their modern country wedding.
Sally and Brady had the perfect mix of vintage and modern touches. She use soft colors, moss covered branches, large floral hydrangea arrangements and splashes of bright colors. Sally’s mom walked her down the aisle and one of my favorite moments ever is right before Sally’s mom gave her away, she gave her groom a wink and a smile. This wedding was filled with love, silliness, sweetness and lots of laughs! Sally and Brady pulled off their outdoor Texas summer wedding by using the longer days with a 7pm ceremony start time, providing lots of bottled water for her guests and making her ceremony short and sweet. Sally and Brady were married under a magnificent oak tree dripping with mossy plants and flowers which also provided shade for their guests. Their ceremony was a backdrop to longhorns in the pasture behind the tree which had retreated to the grove of oak trees behind to stay cool. The aisle was adorned with soft baby’s breath and tin planters. Vintage jewelry, soft burlap and whimsical flowers gave this wedding just the right amount of modern country. Their butter cream cake was adorned with fresh fruit for a southern feel.

Forget a wedding cake, a wedding cake pinata for the bride and groom to smash open for all their guests is way more fun. Thank you to Bycherry Photography for sharing this amazing wedding with us.

Today we bring Jessica & Ken’s beautiful Olowalu Wedding filled with lots of Love. The Olowalu Wedding Plantation House is a beautiful out door location for your Hawaiian wedding.
From the bride: It was so much fun planning our wedding. We right away fell in love with Olowalu and knew that we HAD to share this amazing place with our friends and family. Working with a $15,000 dollar budget I knew I would need to do most everything myself if I wanted Olowalu as our venue. Olowalu Plantation house is such a beautiful spot, one truly does not need much to have an amazingly beautiful wedding. Ken and I are simple kind of people and we wanted to have a clean, classic, vintage romantic wedding, to do so I utilized the websites Etsy and Pintrest to help with my creative needs. The day went by so fast, we are so glad that we took the time to do a first look pictures as it gave us some much needed quality time together before the festivities. We focused and talked about our journey thus far and the future ahead.

This Grand Island Mansion wedding was so gorgeous with all the white and purple throughout. The centerpieces where beautiful and the custom dessert bar Fearon May Events created with diamond curtains was over the top. From a cigar bar to a donuts display this Grand Island Mansion wedding had it all. The couple even opted out of the chicken and steak dinner and the Mini Burger Truck serve sliders and fries plated to each guest. The purple rosette chair backs were custom made by Mimi and Company. The head table was a unique kings table set for 16 people and had 2 large white trees that came out of the middle of the table. This was a gorgeous Grand Island Mansion wedding and the pictures Carmen Salazar Photography captured are priceless.

Quin & Nick knew they wanted a Strawberry Farms wedding the first time they saw the property. The Strawberry Farms wedding venue was the perfect rustic barn setting for this couple. They have been a couple for a long time and this wedding took a couple years to come together with many of their details handmade by themselves. Nick is pretty handy and made metal initials for the barn doors out of rebar. He was also in charge of cutting down a tree and cutting it into pieces for their table tops. Over the past year they collected glass bottles to use for their center pieces including baby food jars and Snapple bottles. The tree slices served as platforms to display all the jars which were filled with wild flowers purchased at the local flower market. They also planted succulents in small clay pots for guest favors. Having a great love for the outdoors, Quin & Nick choose to name all their tables after their favorite national parks. Keeping in line with their natural theme, they painted the guest’s name and table on smooth black rocks that they collected. The rocks were displayed on a table with green moss and accented with flower filled light bulbs. An idea Quin found on Pinterest. Additionally, to pay homage to the bride’s Filipino heritage all the men wore Barongs in leu of traditional suites. Pretty much every detail of their wedding was thoughtful and a unique representation of their life together. Thank you to Continuum Wedding Photography for sharing this Strawberry Farms wedding.

This adorable vintage western wedding has lots of cute details. The groom who is a rodeo rider wore a cowboy hat and the bride wore some adorable turquoise blue cowboy boots. This vintage western wedding had beautiful hand tied red rose bouquets as well as red rose centerpieces. A vintage western suitcase was used to collect cards as guests arrived. The vintage western window displayed the table names and numbers for guests to find their seats. We also loved the large lanterns that lined the porch with candles. We’ve seen these available at IKEA before and they are perfect to add to a vintage western wedding theme.

JP and Ashley’s Wedding aired last night on ABC. This is only the third marriage to happen from the show Bachlorette / Bachelor. The amazing wedding took place at The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, CA. The wedding took place on December 1st but aired last night for the world to see. We loved watching all the details of JP and Ashley’s Wedding and seeing our favorite wedding planner Mindy Weiss help the couple plan an extraordinary event. The lush flowers from Marks Garden covered the Chuppah for the ceremony and the centerpieces were over the top with white and green flowers. We love the ceremony setup and rustic wood aisle and stage that was custom build for the wedding. JP and Ashley’s Wedding was straight out of a fairytale. Her gorgeous designer gown by Randi Rahm was gorgeous and fit her like a glove. JP and Ashley’s Wedding set the bar for one of the best TV weddings ever. The bar has been set and we will see who the next couple will be to try and out do this wedding? Will it be the new bachelor Sean?

JP and Ashley incorporated the Celtic tradition of Hand Fasting into their ceremony. The moms read a poem that went like this:
These are the hands that will work along side of your as together you build your first home, plant your first garden and walk forward hand in hand into your future.
These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you, the only ones with the ability to comfort you like no one else can.
These are the hands that will tenderly hold your first child, the hands that hold your family together as one and lastly these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours as they hold you hear now, promising you they will never ever let you go.
Congratulation JP & Ashley!
We all love celebrity wedding receptions! We don’t always get to see the pictures from most of the Celebrity weddings that take place, but every once in a while we get a glimpse into the best night of their life’s. We believe it should be mandatory that all celebrities should tweet, Facebook or post a picture of their wedding decor so all the brides out there can be inspired. We searched the web to find some of our favorite celebrity wedding receptions from over the years to share with you. 2012 was definitely a good year with some HOT people getting married. We hope your jaw drops while looking over some of these stunning celebrity wedding receptions.
