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!

Intimate New York City Hall Wedding – Tatiana and Roman were married at New York City Hall in New York, N.Y. on March 20.

1940s-Inspired Florida Wedding – Victoria and David were married at First United Methodist Church of Winter Garden in Winter Garden, Fla. followed by a reception at Tanner Hall on November 8. The bride’s classic ballgown and birdcage veil – not to mention her pearl jewelry and red lipstick – have us swooning. The sweetest part? Her engagement ring once belonged to the groom’s grandmother.

Bohemian Ohio Farmstead Wedding – Liza & Cory were married at The Conrad Botzum Farmstead in Akron, Ohio on October 3.

P.S.: We can’t get over the bride’s amazing wedding gown!
