We’re so excited to see what the next nine years will bring, but for today, we’re celebrating by consuming sweet treats and toasting with our favorite beverages. Happy Birthday, WeddingWire! Can’t wait to see what the next nine years will bring.


It’s time for our weekly real weddings recap! Today, we’re sharing five weddings with inspiration for any style, from a glam California ceremony to a laid-back (and lobster-filled) wedding in Maine. Check out each gallery below!

Pink and Teal Minnesota Wedding – Kalin and Nick were married at Mount Olive Lutheran Church in Saint Paul, Minn. followed by a reception at Courtyards of Andover in Andover, Minn. on November 21. The couple opted for a bold pink and teal color scheme. Don’t miss the bridesmaids’ pretty gowns!

Glamorous California Hotel Wedding – Kiran and Ajay were married at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point, Calif. on August 1. Their wedding was filled with traditional Hindu elements, including a gorgeous mandap and the groom’s horseback processional (called a baraat).

Summer Maine Barn Wedding – Betsie and Keith were married at the Historic Alna Meetinghouse followed by a reception at the Round Top Barn in Damariscotta, Maine on September 12. Our editors can’t get enough of this quintessential New England wedding, including the yummy lobster feast! We also love their rustic-chic decor, such as wildflower centerpieces and checkered table linens.

Classic Minnesota Summer Wedding – Kate and Stephen were married at the Cathedral of Saint Paul followed by a reception at 413 on Wacouta Event Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota on July 18. Everything about their wedding was timeless and classic, from the bride’s A-line gown to the gold and white tablescapes at the reception. Plus, we can’t resist their adorable pup, Cooper, who was a part of the big day.

Chic Outer Banks Estate Wedding – Janna and Sam were married at The Whalehead Club in Corolla, N.C. on May 29. Peach and ivory created the perfect palette for this Southern spring wedding. We especially love the bride’s amazing bouquet (it weighed more than five pounds!) of peonies and garden roses.
