Real Winter Wedding: Megan & Tommy – Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Megan and Tommy, held at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn in Lake Tahoe, CA. Two feet of snow had fallen the weekend before the wedding, making for a beautiful winter backdrop. The couple spends every weekend possible in Lake Tahoe together in the winter so the location was the perfect place for their wedding celebration.

The wedding ceremony was a quick 25 minutes outdoor setting, with classic Christmas tunes playing in the background. They served their guests hot chocolate, coffee and tea along with hand warmers and shawls to keep them warm. Unique touches like cones full of biodegradable snow was placed on all the aisle seats to throw at the end of the ceremony which made it very fun and playful for their guests. To keep warm the bridesmaids wore Uggs and Sorel boots under their long gowns.

Real Weddings: Christina and Anthony

Today’s Real Wedding features the elegant wedding of Christina, and Anthony, which took place at the beautiful Princeton University Chapel on Princeton University’s campus, followed by a reception at The Merion in New Jersey.

Bridesmaids shined in a dark aubergine chiffon Amsale creation while the bride went with a classic Lazaro ivory gown with beading of pearl and crystal, a long cathedral veil and a crystal headband. The men were also classic in black tuxedos with the groom sporting a white tie.

The tables were named after places in New York City that were special to the bride and groom…Central Park Zoo where Anthony proposed, Stans where the couple celebrated many Yankee wins and other special locations to the couple and some of their friends and family members.

The flowers were simple but lush in lavender, pale green and white and downplayed the deep aubergine and chartreuse. With peonies, hydrangea, and roses the high centerpieces drew guests eyes up to the skylight at the reception venue.

Marit took care of every little detail, from hand cutting the placecards and sewing the napkins to her mother growing the flowers for all the centerpieces. This wedding was almost all DIY, which is likely to happen when two designers tie the knot! Photos courtesy of Kimberly Potterf

Real Weddings: Julianna and Matthew

Today’s Real Wedding features the wedding of Julianna and Matthew, which took place at the club house at Coosaw Point in Beaufort, South Carolina. The wedding was small with only about 3 dozen of the couple’s closest friends and family in attendance. Julianna shared with us how the wedding was made even more special to her because for the 2 weeks prior she had been to the hospital twice and could barely get out of bed after being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. She was convinced that a wedding wouldn’t be possible until she was healthier but somehow was able to find the strength for her wedding day. Although the decorations weren’t all that she wanted them to be, and her dress didn’t fit quite right because of the weight she had lost from being sick, she couldn’t have had a more beautiful wedding. Every moment felt all the more special, and Julianna was ecstatic to be marrying her best friend who had already been by her side in sickness and in health. Julianna and Matthew, we wish you all the best! Photos courtesy of Suzanne Garland.
