I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Ashley and Terence celebrated their big day in old-world, european style at Oheka Castle. The couple didn’t have to travel overseas, however, because this gem-of-a-venue in right in New York state. An outdoor ceremony was held overlooking the breathtaking grounds and the design details were centered around the gorgeous, deep purple-hues florals by Ava Floral. The bride wore a cut-out lace Watters gown with just the right amount of sheer for an understated drama. We’re loving the way Grey Collective member Ryon:Lockhart Photography captured all the incredible moments in these beautiful images.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We did so much ourselves! We designed and printed the programs and menus. I learned calligraphy to hand-address our invites. And the vendors! We actually worked with people who we would go out and have a drink with. It really made it feel like we were connected to EVERYONE that day. There was so much support!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

The gown is a Watters gown that I tried on at my first appointment at Lovely in NYC. I didn’t want to commit at my first appointment so I went to a few others and then knew I wanted to try that Watters gown on again. I looked to see when they would have a trunk sale in the area so that if I wanted to buy, I would get a discount! When I tried it on the second time I knew it was perfect for me!

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We had a lot of quirky additions that helped make the day uniquely ours. We had a family friend perform the ceremony and another family friend play bagpipes after we finished saying our vows. We also just did whatever made us happy. My shoes hurt so I ended up wearing slippers the whole night. Also, we got to crowd-surf to Love In This Club at the end of the night. We also hand-painted the table assignments and used letters as opposed to numbers.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met through mutual friends and became fast friends. We spent countless hours flirting on gchat until one day Terence told me he had feelings for me. We have been together ever since. We got engaged mid-week during the summer of 2014. Terence asked me to meet him for drinks at the Wythe hotel and then proposed in one of their rooms. Now we have the same wallpaper that was in that room in our apartment at home!

If purple is your color, then Michelle and Jordan’s Palladium wedding is for you. The high-school sweethearts are from Pittsburgh but shared their new town, St. Louis, Missouri, with all their family and friends in a lovely day filled with lavender-hued details. Our favorite, of course are the artful florals by Bloomin’ Buckets. The huge blooms are classic, gorgeous and perfectly held together with long purple ribbon ties. And you guys HAVE to check out the glittering lavender tiered cake by La Patisserie Chouquette—amaze. Thankfully, Grey Collective member Carretto Studio was on hand to capture all the pretty-in-purple in their signature fine-art photography style.

What made the wedding special and unique?

Jordan and I met in high school, and our families live less than 5 minutes from each other back home. However, after college, we packed up and moved out to St. Louis, MO so that Jordan could attend Logan College of Chiropractic to receive his doctorate. As we were planning our wedding, we decided that we wanted our friends and family to experience our new home-away-from-home and opted to host our wedding out here. It was so unbelievably special to have all of our guests travel here and get to show them our new city over the weekend. To top it all off, the Pittsburgh Pirates were in town playing the St. Louis Cardinals that weekend and we had over 100 people attend the game with us on Sunday!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I searched high and low for my wedding gown, but couldn’t find anything that felt like me. Finally, while searching for bridesmaid dresses back home in Pittsburgh, I came across this beautiful blush pink dress that had a little bit of lace, a little bit of glam and a whole lot of me all mixed in! Needless to say, we ended up not buying bridesmaid dresses that day, but my wedding gown instead.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We tried to make every single detail extremely personal. We wanted a wedding that felt like “us” and not just any other wedding day. A few of the smaller details included mini-margaritas as our signature drink, which were an ode to our love of Mexican food date nights, hush puppy appetizers, which is a must-have snack the second Jordan and I get to the beach every year, and mini-pies for dessert, which is the only kind of dessert Jordan likes! Our first dance was a song from Steve Moakler, who is a growing artist that actually attended the same high school as us. Our programs included sketches of each bridesmaid/groomsman, done by a good friend of mine, and a short paragraph about how we knew each person and what we loved the most about them. The majority of our stationery items were created by my sister as a wedding gift to us. The most personal aspect of the wedding day, for me, was sharing a special dance with my uncle who had just undergone several intense surgeries and procedures for brain cancer. My birthday wish was to share a dance with him on our wedding day, and, at that point, we weren’t sure if he was even going to be able to make the trip to St. Louis. It was so unbelievably special for me, and my whole family, to have him there and able to share a dance together.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Oh, there’s so many! I would have to say my most memorable part of the day would have to be the moment we were pronounced husband and wife in front of all of our friends and family. Turning to look out at every one, with my best friend next to me, was such a powerful moment and I remember being so overcome with joy and gratefulness.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in high school, actually on a double-date with other people! We were best friends throughout the years, and started dating towards the end of our senior year. We did long-distance all through college, and when I came back home after graduation we decided to go sky-diving to celebrate our achievements. It was something we had always wanted to do, and we figured it was the perfect celebratory activity! Little did I know that once we scheduled our appointments, Jordan orchestrated the whole thing with the facility, my family, his family, and our friends to plan the perfect proposal. Jordan jumped first, and I followed shortly after. He had landed just a few minutes before me and managed to run over and grab the ring from my dad without me seeing. When I finally landed and was making my way towards him, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

Ashley and Ian’s destination wedding celebration was held at the historic Ribault Club on Forte George Island, Florida and served as mini-vacation for their family and friends who they don’t see as often as they’d love to. The long-distance couple met when the Ashley’s best friend married Ian’s brother. They were paired up to walk down the isle together and the rest is history! Their celebration was a mix of old and new as the couple infused a modern geometry theme into the historic southern venue. We especially love the marbled and hand-lettered invitations by the always-awesome Printerette Press, the larger-than-life bouquet by The Anti Bride and the artful and organic-inspired cakes by Sweet ‘N’ Flour. Lucky for us Stephanie W. Photography was on hand to capture all the lovely details!

How they met:

Ashley and Ian met in May 2011 in Indianapolis at her best friend and his brother’s wedding. Both were in the wedding party and were randomly paired to walk down the aisle together! They spent the whole wedding weekend talking and by the time they had to leave they were both hooked on each other.

About their first date:

Since Ashley lived in MN and Ian lived in CA they didn’t have a traditional first date. On a business trip to Long Beach for Ian and a visit to a friend in LA they decided to meet up. Ian picked Ashley up and they cruised down to Long Beach for a car show and brunch and ended up hanging out there for a couple days together before returning home.

How he proposed:

On a Sunday morning in November Ian decided they were going to go into San Francisco and do something fun. After a fun day driving around and visiting the zoo they decided to watch the sun set on the West Coast, since after 2 years of living in San Fran they still hadn’t done so yet. They put out a blanket on the beach and waited. As Ian was trying to get a picture of them he started making fun of the ugly gloves she had on, saying they were ruining the picture. She was insistent it was too cold to take them off. He then said she would have to take them off because it would be difficult to wear this. He stuck out his hand with the ring in it and asked her to marry him.

About their wedding:

They turned their wedding into a mini-vacation for their friends, and a week long vacation for most of their family so they would get to spend as much time with all the people that matter to them the most but don’t get to see often enough. For their wedding they wanted to make sure there were good drinks, fun yard games and string lights! It wouldn’t be right without string lights!

Danielle and David’s wedding at  The Bowery Hotel in New York is a totally romantic celebration filled with touches of urban glam, a moody deep pink and red color palette and tons and tons of amazing florals by Poppies and Posies. (The ceiling high rose ceremony installation is a MUST-SEE.) And, for a bride who initially didn’t want “lace, beading or a big skirt” she nailed all three in her Silvia Tcherassi that she fell in love with at the designer’s boutique. Lucky for us, one of our faves, Heather Waraksa, was enlisted to capture all the gorgeous details of the day in her signature film style. We know you’re going to love this one!

What made the wedding special and unique?

Although we’re both from Florida, we decided to get married in New York. We really wanted our wedding to be a glimpse into the life we were building together. To that end, our rehearsal dinner was at the restaurant where we had our first date, we found our band at a “dive” bar on a random night out, and our wedding cake came from Milk Bar, which has a location right by our apartment.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

Living in New York, I was convinced that my dress would come from one of the many famous salons in the city. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my mom (and fashion role model), insisted that we go dress shopping in Miami – she wanted to avoid a trip to New York in the winter at all costs! On a whim we popped into a small store in Coral Gables, Silvia Tcherassi (sans appointment). We weren’t even sure there would be wedding gowns. I had told everyone that I didn’t want lace, beads, or a big skirt, I somehow fell in love with a dress that had all three! Three days later I had a wedding dress!  I absolutely loved the dress, but even more importantly, I loved the experience of getting my dress from Silvia Tcherassi.  They customized the top of the dress to fit me perfectly, and Silvia joined a few of my fittings to make sure she personally liked the way the dress turned out.  My mom and I had so much fun there that she got her MOB dress and I got my rehearsal dinner dress from them as well!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

David and I decided to write our own vows. What I didn’t know is he that had coordinated with our ceremony musician to sing his vows to me! He’s not a great singer, but there is just something I absolutely love about when he sings to me. I think we were all pretty shocked when he pointed at the pianist and said “hit it John”.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met through our older siblings, who we were both living with at that time. David joined his older sister at my brother’s and my New Year’s Eve party. He surprised me with a kiss at midnight!  It took a few years for us to be living in the same city, but we started dating pretty soon thereafter.

Our engagement was pretty amazing! I had dinner plans with a good friend, and she suggested we meet in Williamsburg, one of my favorite neighborhoods.  We took the ferry over from Manhattan, and when we arrived in Brooklyn, David was standing on a  pier with a brass band! He sang “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” to me at the top of his lungs.  After that we went over to the Wythe Hotel to celebrate with friends.

We’re enamored with the incredible scenery in Grey Collective member Bianco Photography‘s images—especially the way she captures the beautiful bride weaving through the cobblestone roads to meet her groom for their hilltop ceremony. The VIEWS!!! We know you’ll love them as much as we do!

Having a small wedding with just our closest friends and family with us. We were able to spend quality time with all who attended. The setting was also incredible.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I visited my bridesmaid in Australia and found the perfect gown there (one like nothing I ever imagined I’d go for and would never had tried it on had my bridesmaid not forced me to!) but couldn’t purchase it as it required 5 fittings in Melbourne. I was gutted I couldn’t get it. By pure luck I found a very similar gown by Pronovias when I went shopping with my mum.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

We made name place holders with funny photos of the guests in a Polaroid style. It was a talking point for guests on tables who didn’t know each other (an icebreaker I suppose to explain the background to the photo) and many guests then kept them.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

The long and short of it is that he proposed to me in a hotel room in Paris one evening in October after we’d visited our friends who live there. I thought it was a joke as the temporary ring was in the box of the jeweler for the jewelry that I was going to wear that evening for dinner. Then he got on one knee and fumbled with the box!
