This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Michelle and Heart, held Putah Creek Lodge in the UC Davis Arboretum, Davis, CA. Since the groom is a student and the bride is an employee of UC Davis, they decided to celebrate all things Davis on their special day, including renting the vintage double-decker bus from the campus, using the Davis pedi-cab as their getaway “car” and hiring the Cal Aggie Band-Uh Marching Band to surprise everyone (including the groom) mid-ceremony right after the pronouncement.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Stacey & Matt, held at Holy Cross Hungarian Roman Catholic Church in Detroit, MI. The reception was held at St. Mary’s Cultural & Banquet Center.
Stacey is 5’3″, likes exercising for the purpose of being able to eat more later, and enjoys electric heater-side chats that don’t make you smell smoky like fire does. She has a Ph.D. in Instructional Technology, has completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan, and currently resides in the greater Los Angeles area where she is completing a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Southern California. She enjoys pointing out how much nicer the weather is in California compared to Michigan.
Matt (Nickname Nemo) is 6’7″, loves being asked about his height and affinity for playing basketball, ducking doorways, and getting things for others off of high shelves. He also loves sarcasm. Nemo currently is a physical therapist at All-Pro Physical Therapy in Livonia, MI, by day, and crime fighter at night (when he doesn’t fall asleep on the couch too early while watching The Walking Dead).
They met like any normal, common couple meets: in a cold, damp room in the basement of Scott hall – the air filled with the sweet scent of formaldehyde – over cadavers in anatomy lab of the Wayne State University Physical Therapy program.
Following our Pantone Celosia Orange inspiration board, we’re dreaming up new ways to incorporate this peachy hue into future spring weddings.

Consider incorporating a palette of sherbet hues to pull the whole theme together for a truly elegant affair.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Elizabeth and Ross, held at a horse farm in Dallas, PA. The day was absolutely beautiful and better than they could have ever imagined, minus the 30 mph winds and the 50 temps in the month of May. They were able to get up close and personal with the horses on the property while taking pictures. So close in fact that one started to eat the bride’s bouquet! They wanted to make their dog part of their special day, so in lieu of a traditional pillow, they had the ring bearer carry a stuffed animal replica of their German Shorthaired Pointer with the rings tied to the collar. The couple is all about tradition so they used lace from the bride’s mother’s wedding gown to wrap her bouquet, and lace from her bridesmaids’ dresses to wrap her girls’ bouquets.

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Christie and Will, held at The Love Boat House in Hattera, NC. The Love Boat is an estate house right on the water. The ceremony took place down a small pebbled path from the reception area, specialty refreshing cocktails offered along the way. The tented reception was on the vast back lawn of the estate, overlooking the calm waters of the sound.
Imported French lace tabletops, history books on love strategically placed throughout, each table displayed a magnificent array of beauty and uniqueness. The bohemian theme and feel continued to the head table with beach drift wood hearts, old vintage chests overflowing with flowers, napkins put together with torn fibers saying Love of a Lifetime, old keys, and vintage french teacups. This mix of vintage and bohemian made you feel like you could just curl up in a corner with a cup of tea and book off of one of the tables, hanging out all night.
