Congress Park in Saratoga Springs Wedding

This week’s Real Wedding features Adee and Alex’s intimate and elegant Saratoga Springs wedding in Congress Park in New York. The couple chose to incorporate different themes together for their wedding. The garden, country, nature themed wedding had many DIY and personal details to make their day unique to them as a couple. The cake was hand-made along with the pine cone escort cards, program board, and balloons for their first look tradition. They used a unity plant for their unity ceremony, a thumbprint tree guest book, and the maid of honor even made her own dress. They also kept it modern by creating their own personal Spotify wedding playlist.

The bride would like to add a piece of advice for your wedding planning. The prize at the end of it all is a marriage which is precious, incredibly rare and sacred, so keep your eye on the prize. Her favorite wedding quote is, A wedding is a party, not a performance. If at the end of the day, you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly! Beautifully said Adee!

San Buenaventura Mission Wedding

This week’s Real Wedding features Natalie and Mitchell’s traditional church wedding at San Buenaventura Mission in Ventura California. The couple chose to make wedding planning less stressful so they hosted a non-traditional reception at Peirano’s Restaurant with no DJ, no first dance, or wedding cake. They served mini cupcakes and lemon bars from a local bakery, and after dinner their guests hung out, drank wine, and socialized with each other.

The couple also chose to keep the reception decor simple and elegant. They had mismatched gold chargers they borrowed from different family members. The flower vases were purchased at various thrift shops, and when they decided they needed more they used a few of the grooms beer growlers he had due to his craft beer obsession.

The bride chose a Sarah Seven bridal gown with Badgley Mischka peep-toe pumps. Hair and makeup by Hey Beautiful.

The couple chose Wedding Paper Divas wedding invitations Inlaid Flowers in the color Winterberry.

Real Weddings: Paula and Jacques

Today’s Real Wedding features the wedding of Paula and Jacques, which took place at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens in Florida. Since Paula was very busy with her medical school schedule, Jacques did most of the wedding planning. He flew down to Miami to meet with the flourist and caterers by himself. Paula actually saw her beautiful bouquet for the first time on the day of the wedding! Here are some photos of the event, courtesy of Hitz Photography.

Real Weddings: Aileen and Jason

Today’s Real Wedding features the wedding of Aileen and Jason, which took place at Historic Jordan Springs in Winchester, Virginia. Our Vintage Print invitations were the perfect choice for a fall wedding set in the Virginia countryside. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple had fresh, hot cider donuts along with a whimsical cart for the guests to enjoy. We just love the beautiful harvest hues used in the wedding as well as the charming caramel and candied apple favors. Here are some beautiful photos of the event, courtesy of Terra Dawn Photography.
