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!
Blush and Gray Vineyard Wedding – Jesse and Curtis were married at HammerSky Vineyards in Paso Robles, Calif. on September 6. A few showstoppers from this wedding include Jesse’s blush pink Vera Wang gown, and the reception dinner, which was catered by a food truck!
New England New Year’s Eve Wedding – Abby and Greg were married at the Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, Mass. on December 31. They celebrated the new year in one of the best ways possible – by saying “I do!”
In addition, our Real Weddings Editor is also busy featuring cute couples for our photo galleries! Each week, she’ll be sharing her favorite real weddings on Fridays at noon. Check out this roundup below:
Las Vegas Botanical Garden Wedding – Diana and Ben were married at the Springs Preserve Botanical Garden in Las Vegas, Nev. on June 22. Their elegant, botanical theme included festive pops of bright yellow throughout the decor.
Nautical New York Beach Wedding – Jessica and Christopher were married at Oceanbleu in Westhampton, N.Y. on September 12. Instead of throwing rice as the newlyweds walked down the aisle, everyone tossed miniature beach balls!
Intimate Malibu Mountaintop Wedding – Caitlin and Woody were married at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica, Calif., followed by a reception at the Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate Vineyards in Malibu, Calif. on July 26. This couple got engaged in Malibu and decided to return for their wedding because of the stunning scenery. “We made sure the shuttles took our guests along the Pacific Coast Highway so everyone could see the amazing ocean views along the way,” said Caitlin.
North Carolina Estate Wedding – Kate and Jordan were married at The Watson House in Emerald Isle, North Carolina on October 18. Some of the flowers in Kate’s bouquet were picked right from gardens at The Watson House!
In case you didn’t already know, Caitlin, one of our very own on WeddingWire’s editorial team, is engaged! Throughout her entire planning process, she’ll be giving you insight on her experiences until September 20, 2014. First up: wedding dress shopping — and 9 things no one ever told her!
Kelly and Andrew were married during a cold, winter day in Swansboro, N.C. on January 5. To keep warm, the bride accessorized with a fur stole on top of her fit ‘n’ flare ruffled wedding gown. Bridesmaids wore purple dresses whereas groomsmen wore gray suits with polka dot bow ties. Bouquets featured an array of blooms such as garden roses, hydrangeas, and calla lilies. Following the traditional church ceremony, the reception was held at the town’s civic center, which was decorated with lace, lanterns, and wine bottles. “When we walked into the room, we were completely blown away,” Kelly said. “The room looked magical! Even though we had picked out the details, we were still shocked when we saw how beautifully it came together.” Even the ceiling was draped with fabric and chandelier! Their favorite moment? The father of the bride’s speech. “We still laugh at the things he said,” she said. Instead of a sparkler send off, guests held handwritten signs that said, “Faith,” “Bliss,” “Fun,” “Love,” and “Hope.” A cute do-it-yourself touch.
