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.
Happy First Anniversary to one of our most favorite couples, Erika and Morgan. They were married at Wayfarer’s Chapel and Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California on September 22, 2012. Cheers to many many more!

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.
Today’s Real Wedding features the darling wedding of Wedding Paper Divas staffer, Marit, and David, which took place at Harrington Meeting House, followed by a reception at 1812 Farm, in Pemaquid, Maine. 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.
