This week’s top five real weddings are filled with inspiration for every style! We love the fun-filled carnival bash in California, and the Georgia ranch wedding has a touching story behind it that moved us all. See more of our favorites below!
Carnival-Themed California Wedding– Cari and Paul were married at Murrieta Equestrian Center in Murrieta, Calif. on July 11. They took their rustic-vintage wedding up several notches by providing an array of fun carnival games and rides to entertain their guests all night long. And yes, there was a Ferris wheel!
Intimate Georgia Ranch Wedding– Anna and Travis were married at Double H Ranch in Colbert, Ga. on October 9. Their sunset wedding was intimate and elegant, with a focus on honoring the bride’s late son, Lake, who passed away from cancer just a few months before the wedding. Photographer Brandy Angel paid tribute to the family by later adding Lake’s silhouette to their group portrait. So beautiful!
Sunny California Vineyard Wedding– Brittany and Adam were married at Still Waters Vineyards in Paso Robles, Calif. on September 19. They said ‘I do’ with a picturesque hillside backdrop and took to the vineyards for a few adorable photos following the ceremony. At the reception, the show-stopper was this four-tier ombre cake garnished with fresh roses.
Industrial Spring Atlanta Wedding– Taylor and Robert were married at The Stave Room at American Spirit Works in Atlanta, Ga. on May 2. The whiskey distillery was the perfect setting for this modern and chic wedding. We love their addition of lush floral arrangements, which kept the space from feeling too minimal!
Rustic Purple Wyoming Wedding–Dawn and Casey were married at St. Alban’s Chapel in Centennial, Wyo. followed by a reception at Snowy Mountain Lodge on September 5.Not many couples can say they went fishing on their wedding day…except for Dawn and Casey! Their brown and purple color scheme blended perfectly with the venue’s mountaintop scenery.
In honor of engaged couples sharing their #justsaidyes moments with us on Instagram, we just had to share this adorable proposal. This man filmed his own version of the “Rude” music video and played it for his girlfriend at the local movie theater, which happened to be filled with their family and friends. After leaving the theater for a few minutes, he reappeared to ask her the question of a lifetime. Between the amount of planning and her reaction, good luck not tearing up!
