Wedding: Alisha and Kai

From Alisha and Kai’s photographer: Alisha and Kai are warm, laid-back but also glamorous! They celebrated in San Francisco’s Foreign Cinema where they ate fried chicken, hugged all their loved ones A LOT, and listened to some of the best Father of the Bride speeches we’ve ever heard.

Also, Alisha’s twin sister was on this blog about two years ago when she got married!

Wedding: Danielle & Holly

Danielle & Holly’s breezy beachside wedding makes you feel lush with Montauk summer. Dese’Rae Stage and Felicidad Garcia of We Are for Each Other captured the day, which began with a getting ready party at their industrial chic suite at Montauk Beach House and ended in a hip, waterfront affair at Navy Beach Restaurant. This wedding was bursting with love from friends and family for this couple. Really, every detail in this wedding was a moment for pause: from their ethereal, gauzy dresses, to the inscribed cake forks (Bride & Bride!) and the seashell table markers. At dinner, service, dishes and hysterical speeches were served up hot in a modern nautical space with community tables and wide windows facing the shore. After the sun set behind dark waves, guests ran out, dug their feet in the sand and danced with sparklers, drawing shapes of light in the dark. Magic!

Wedding: Michelle & Giulia

From Michelle: Giulia and I (curly hair) have been together for 7 years, almost to the day of our wedding. We wanted our wedding to be perfectly us- a little bit of G, a little bit of me and a whole lot of both of us which means there would be A LOT of laughter! With the exception of the 100 degree weather, the day couldn’t have been better. It was FILLED with an abundant amount of love, laughter, friends and family not to mention amazing food and drinks (including a surprise hot dog cart at the end of the evening). We are truly are lucky to have such an amazing group of supporters.

We had a number of personal touches throughout the day… my brother, Marc wasn’t just in our wedding but also designed our invites. The table runners were designed by us- oak (from where I’m from) surrounded by redwood (from where Giulia’s from) and were put together by us and my dad. The vases were collected by many of our friends and family in an event we called The Great Vase Chase… we collected over 200 vases! Our sister-in-law made our cake topper…the list goes on and on!

Our wedding day was exactly what we had pictured in our minds for so long… a day we’ll never forget and one we loved from start to finish. It kind of makes us giggle all over again looking at our pictures! ENJOY!

Wedding: Ruth & Ellie

From Ruth and Ellie: We have been together for 3 years, and we technically got engaged twice: once on our first holiday to Paris, where we decided to change our surname to Wilde and bought cheap rings (they broke); and then, when we moved in together, we went to the jewellers and made it official. We wanted to wait for equal marriage, and when the law passed we booked straight away for a summer wedding. It turns out we were the first Nottinghamshire couple to book a same-sex wedding, so we were interviewed by local and national media!

We met at a Christian arts festival, and our faith is very important to both of us, but we can’t get married in the Church of England. We were lucky to have a good friend who is ordained, and who carried out a service of celebration for us after our civil ceremony, in our wonderfully inclusive (and colourful) church.

We chose a ‘gold at the end of the rainbow theme’ to honour gay pride and Ellie’s Irish roots, and told all our guests to wear rainbow colours. It was a real family affair with Ruth’s Dad preaching, her sister reading a poem she’d written, and Ellie’s sister making the wedding cake and the centrepieces. Ruth’s Mum made all the flower girl and pageboy outfits, and the maid of honour’s dress – she’s a genius!

A lot of our wedding was local and handmade, from the golden ‘guest tree’ to the real ales from the shop our friends own. We couldn’t have been happier to have a colourful summer wedding in the community that’s welcomed us so warmly. The support and love of our friends, church and family made it truly the best day of our lives.

Wedding: Crissy & Ellen

From Crissy and Ellen’s wedding planner: Crissy and Ellen came to me completely overwhelmed by the process of wedding planning. They had no idea where to begin and hired us to take care of all the details. One thing they were clear on is that they don’t like being the center of attention. We planned a small ceremony in Provincetown for about 20 family members (and their dog Murphy!), while over 100 guests joined them for the reception in Boston a few days later.

With a black, white and purple palette and killer venues, we designed a chic, sophisticated city wedding that reflected Crissy and Ellen.

Wedding: Sarah-Nelle & Aislin

From Sarah-Nelle: My partner Aislin and I had the kind of wedding where eight people were plenty. Intimate, bright, and low-key, a small neighborhood lake was the ideal setting and our beautiful machine-washable dresses were a serious perk.

I had two goals for the wedding day and festivities, apart from “be married by the end.” I wanted great food and great photography. The food I’m happy to say, was delicious, and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer than belle ancell photography. I discovered belle’s work through a post on this very blog and her photos conveyed a laid-back, irresistible warmth that felt perfect for Aislin and I.

This was one of the best days of Aislin’s and my life together, so far.

Wedding: Molly & Stacy

From Molly: On a chilly Friday evening in October, Stacy and I were surrounded by our friends and family for our ceremony in the beautiful rooftop Skygarden at a downtown Minneapolis hotel. It was chilly, but our guests and bridesmates braved the 43 degree temperatures to watch us exchange vows. The reception and dance followed in the ballroom of the hotel.

We made our day our own in the details. Stacy wore Converse shoes to stick to her athletic roots. I carried a bouquet which held broaches and hairpins given by important women in my life. My bouquet was wrapped in part of my mother’s wedding dress. Our nieces and nephew greeted guests with programs, and each of our siblings was in the wedding party. Because Stacy and I are not big on public displays of affection, my maid of honor and Stacy’s woman of honor leaned in with our bouquets when we kissed to seal our wedding vows. Our first dance was a memorable one, full of quirky dance moves, and it certainly was a crowd-pleaser. These small details made the day truly ours. However, our favorite part of our day was looking out on our guests at dinner and realizing the love that surrounded us. It was our perfect day!
