Bohemian Ohio Farmstead Wedding – Liza & Cory were married at The Conrad Botzum Farmstead in Akron, Ohio on October 3. Midway through the ceremony, rain forced them and their guests to move indoors, but that didn’t stop the groom from surprising his bride with a musical performance during their vows. P.S.: We can’t get over the bride’s amazing wedding gown!

The WeddingWire Social Atlanta was a fashion and beauty-themed treat for brides-to-be! The event was held at Neiman Marcus in the Lenox Mall, and was hosted by local bride Mone’t. Guests were welcomed with champagne, wine, and hors d’oeuvres, and enjoyed a fashion presentation featuring designer looks for pre-wedding parties—and some gorgeous lingerie, too! Afterwards, Tom Ford Beauty selected one guest to receive a total makeover and guests were able to ask the experts questions about makeup application and skin care. A lucky raffle winner received a pair of pearl earrings from Neiman Marcus, and all attendees received gift cards.
