Spring Seattle Restaurant Wedding – Kristin and Derek were married aboard the Seattle-Bainbridge Ferry followed by a reception at Ristorante Picolinos in Seattle, Wash. on March 14. They decided to get hitched on the ferry because of the beautiful skyline views it offered. P.S.: Don’t miss the bride’s unique apricot sapphire engagement ring!

Lush Pennsylvania Mansion Wedding  Kristin and Jim were married at The Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park in Ambler, Pa. on October 10. The bride wore a stunning mint blue ballgown and carried an equally pretty bouquet of cafe au lait dahlias, roses, astrantia, and dusty miller. Are we the only ones noticing a Cinderella vibe here?

Snowy Colorado Mountaintop Wedding – Jodi and Devin eloped and were married overlooking the Rocky Mountains in Winter Park, Colo. on November 21. “Over five days, we visited the Denver courthouse, drove up winding mountain roads to Winter Park, stayed in a beautiful home, cooked almost every meal, explored the quaint downtown, drank lots of warm coffee, read by the fireplace, and in the middle of all of that, got married too,” Jodi said.

One of the first (of a million) questions you’ll be asked after you get engaged is: “Have you set a date?” The “when” question is a big one, so we asked 6,000 couples to share when they got engaged and married. Turns out May through October is the most popular time of year to get married (no huge shock there), but June wins the prize for the most popular month to wed—with 16% of 2015 weddings occurring in June. And the most popular month to get engaged? Turns out the holiday season is also prime engagement season—December takes the cake, with 16% of 2015 engagements happening in December. Check out our infographic below and our 2015 Newlywed Report to learn more.

Nautical Florida Boat Wedding – Emily and William were married on the Schooner Hindu followed by a reception at the Eyebrow House at Villas Key West in Key West, Fla. on December 19. This couple got engaged on a boat, so it was only natural that they said “I do” aboard one, too!

Intimate Spring Backyard Wedding – Katie and Haywood were married on a friend’s property in Wadmalaw Island, S.C. on June 13.
