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.

Stephanie and Mark were married at the Historic Fifth Street School in Las Vegas, Nev. on September 21. “I had my heart set on another venue,” Stephanie said. “We threw this one in mostly because my mom had gone to school there when it was the only elementary school in town, and we wanted to check out the renovation. When we walked in I teared up, feeling like this was absolutely the place. But I had been so obsessed with my first choice, I felt like we couldn’t commit to the school yet. When we walked back into the other place, neither of us felt anything. It was just a place. We looked at each other and said, ‘Historic Fifth Street School it is.'” The bride wore an a-line tulle wedding gown with a satin halter bodice, while the groom wore a dark gray vest, white button-up shirt, and khaki pants. Before the evening ceremony, the couple opted for a first look. “I remember there were happy tears and mostly laughter,” she said. “The ceremony involved all of our family and friends, allowing people to get up and give advice or tell stories to show their support of our union. It was important to us to have them be a part of our wedding.” Following, a “this way to more food and cool breezes” sign directed guests to the reception decorated with wooden tables, turquoise runners, and floating candle centerpieces with yellow pincushion proteas. “Bistro lights were the only detail I insisted on,” Stephanie said. “The space practically demanded it.” Dinner and dancing continued throughout the night, even a photo booth provided some entertainment too! The favors? A deck of playing cards. How fun is that?
