Our WeddingWire editors see and publish dozens of real weddings each week, and choosing our favorites is no easy feat, but someone’s gotta do it! This week, we’ve rounded up five beautiful weddings in a variety of styles, from a festive New Year’s Eve ceremony to a laid-back, California vineyard wedding brimming with rustic chic inspiration. Take a look at all of the photos below:

Classic Alabama Golf Club Wedding – Marie Claire and Brian were married at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Montgomery, Ala. followed by a reception at Wynlakes Country Club on June 27. Timeless, elegant, sophisticated — This southern wedding is a classic bride’s (or groom’s) dream! And did we mention the couple’s magical proposal story?

Autumn Georgia Mill Wedding – Nicole and Brandon were married at The Mill at Yellow River in Porterdale, Ga. on October 18. The picturesque riverfront venue was  the perfect backdrop for this couple’s rustic wedding, complete with cowboy boots, baby’s breath and one adorable first look.

Platinum and Pink Loft Wedding – Erin and Michael were married at The Cotton Room in Durham, N.C. on July 17. We love how they combined classic elements with subtle boho details. The stunning bride styled her hair in a unique Dutch braid updo, and we can’t stop staring!

Actress Amy Poehler is already a pro at winning us over with her witty humor, but here at WeddingWire, we think she could have another career in her future: wedding pianist! On November 3, at a church in Pasadena, Calif., Poehler was on hand for a reading of “Portlandia” actress Carrie Brownstein’s book, “Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir.” During the Q&A portion of the event, a fan named Kendall stepped up to the mic and requested that Brownstein marry her and her partner, Genevieve, right then and there! It turns out that Brownstein is a licensed wedding officiant, and after some encouragement from Poehler, she agreed to perform the impromptu wedding. The ever-so-thoughtful Poehler quickly made bouquets for Kendall and Genevieve before taking a seat behind the church’s piano. You can hear her playing some (amateur) notes as the couple exchange their handwritten vows. We have to say that Brownstein did a fantastic job as the officiant, even providing Kendall and Genevieve with some heartfelt marriage advice that had us a bit teary-eyed. See for yourself in the video above!
