What made the wedding special and unique?

Our guests had the opportunity to stay the entire weekend at our venue, Los Poblanos Ranch and Lavender Farm. A relaxing, low key weekend began in the beautiful lavender farm setting and culminated with a beautiful, garden adjacent outdoor ceremony and fountain-side reception.

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

My grandmother, mom, sister, and sister-in-law helped me find my dress at Mockingbird Bridal. The dress designer is Allure Bridal with alterations by Clara Atkinson at Kona Clothing. Kona created the illusion, off the shoulder look I had dreamed up.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal? 

We used our family’s Blue Willow china for every place setting at the long table as well as our family’s collection of Chinoiserie ginger jars as center pieces at all the round tables. However, one of my favorite touches was the lemon tree and the unique way our florist created place cards out of lemons and lemon leaves. Such a fun piece added to all the traditional elements we had.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The sunset photo shoot in the lavender fields.

Tell us how you met and became engaged. 

We met through close family friends and served together in our church and Young Life prior to Will finally getting the guts to ask me out. We dated for nearly 10 months, before Will walked me down to his favorite oak tree grove on his family ranch, dropped to a knee and asked me to marry him.

What made the wedding special and unique?

The location was exactly what I had dreamed. Ever since I was a young child we would travel to Maui whenever we could. We would stay in Kapalua area and would always pass by the little steeple house. As the years went on and my family purchased a home in Lahaina, driving to Kapalua and parking right in front of steeple house so my parents and I could run along the path became a morning routine. I had always envisioned getting married there but to my knowledge it was never used for wedding ceremonies. I had even taken a picture there years prior sitting on the steps of the little chapel. It was  only a couple months after my husband and I had gotten engaged was Steeple House available for us to spend our special day. Another thing that made this day so special were the people. My husband and I met in Hong Kong in high school. We have been dating a long time allowing us to get to know each other’s families extremely well. We had guests from all over the world show up to celebrate with us because of our upbringing. So instead of our marriage celebration feeling like two groups of families/friends coming together for the first time, it felt like one big family reunion.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

Some of my most favorite personal touches were the specific details and decor of the wedding. In order to successfully plan a wedding from afar we put a lot of trust into our amazing wedding planners for executing our vision. We had beautiful floral arrangements which including king protea flowers. The name cards for each setting were crafted from seashells, and our wedding favors including local Maui coffee, jams, and salts made by our Maui neighbors who owned a farm.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Immediately after the ceremony I took off my heels and was barefoot for the rest of the night. Having this luxury because of where we were located made it more comfortable than I could ever imagine. One of the most memorable part of the night was how eager everyone of our guests were to get on the dance floor. It was truly a party and my aunt, who is a performer, came walking onto the dance floor on high stilts.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

My husband and I met in high school in Hong Kong. I personally have grown up overseas my whole life. My parents are international educators. David is originally from Massachusetts and moved to Hong Kong for his father’s job. We dated throughout high school, decided to try long distance in college and eventually I moved to Baltimore where David was finishing school. We got engaged the following year. David planned an intricate scavenger hunt which led me all around. Eventually I ended up in a botanical garden where he was waiting for me by a koi pond (our high-school in Hong Kong had a picnic table by a Koi pond we often sat at to eat lunch together).

San Fransisco couple, Jessica and Luke, celebrated their destination in Santa Fe at La Mesita Ranch Estate.

Black and white elegance with pops of bright coral and raspberry gave a unique twist to the vibe at the ranch. Florals were by Renegade Floral with paper design by Funky Olive Design and gorgeous images captured byTara Bielecki Photography .

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We loved watching that surprise moment when she told her parents as she walked up. The bride works for a premiere wine and spirits distributor so the wedding from start to finish was stocked with some of the best wine selections and cocktails we’ve ever seen. Guests were also treated to a premium whisky and tequila tasting later in the evening and Frito pie, a popular dish served in Santa Fe. Each guest table was named after something significant to the bride and groom with a story for guests to read at each table explaining the significance.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The wedding had some nods to Santa Fe with a surprise Mariachi band that started playing at the ceremony when the bride and groom kissed. They then proceeded to parade the guests, shaking maracas, to cocktail hour straight to the tequila donkey, Rosita, waiting for them. That and their choreographed first dance that was full of fun moments and flair – perfect mix of sophistication and humor.

Jordan and David chose to celebrate their nuptials with a destination event in their college town where the couple first met- Athens, Georgia. The bride explains “it was really special being back where it all started and surrounded by the people who have been part of our relationship since the beginning.” It also made for fun planning trips with planner Keely Thorne Events who helped to create the part-preppy-part-romantic southern wedding in a palette of greens at The Foundry. Florals design was by Amy Osaba Design , custom stationery by Papellerie of Houston and cake by Classic City Confections. Check out all the delightful details in these images by Dana Cubbage Weddings.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We decided to do a “destination wedding” and chose to get married in our college town where we first met – Athens, Georgia. It was really special being back where it all started and surrounded by the people who have been part of our relationship since the beginning. It also made for the best planning trips!

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

Finding the gown was almost too easy. I saw a picture of the dress on Joan Pillow’s store Instagram and after looking into it, saw there was going to be a trunk show with designer appearance at the Houston store the following day. I called the morning of and was able to get an appointment within the hour. My mom and I met at the dress shop, and as I was headed into the dressing room, the wonderful designer, Sareh Nouri, walked up and introduced herself. She then graciously offered to help us customize the design on the back of the dress and a custom train length. It was the best experience.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We worked with a local Houston printing company –  Papellerie – who did the most impressive job of making our invitations and signage really personal and unique to our whole wedding. It was a ton of fun being part of the process and getting to design the aspect that ultimately shaped the look and feel of our big day.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Surprisingly something we both feared the most – our first dance. We had no practice or lessons and were both certain we’d be all nerves, but when the time came, we sang and dance and enjoyed every minute of that moment listening to the song we chose together. It was really, really special.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met my early into my freshman year/his sophomore year while out one night. He was with a friend who wanted to talk to a girl I was with. We ended up all taking a picture together that later some mutual friends tagged us in. Those same mutual friends ended up being the reason we connected around 3 years later in his hometown of LaGrange, Georgia. We moved to my hometown of Houston together in 2012, after graduation, and started our new jobs on the same day. On a random Wednesday night in October 2017, heading to what I thought was his work happy hour/dinner at Hotel ZaZa, David surprised me with a suite overlooking the first place we went on a date in Houston – Hermann Park. The room was full of pictures of all of our years together and the night was full of champagne and Facetimes with our loved ones.

MAJOR fall vibes in Tori and Adam’s gorgeous wedding day Barnsley Resort. The couple tied the knot on a chilly November day while guests snuggled under luxe throws at a ceremony in the round, under a clear top tent beside historic manor house ruins of the north Georgia venue. Designed by Molly McKinley Designs, the stunning details shine in a fall palette featuring peacock, slate, olive, and silver and include florals by Andy Beach & Co. and invitations and day-of paper by Foglio Press. Rain added even more style to an already-gorgeous day and it’s all captured here by our friend Davy Whitener.

From the planner: Tori and Adam’s wedding weekend began with a color palette as fun and vibrant as this couple themselves, featuring peacock, slate, olive, and silver. The wedding suite by Foglio Press hinted many of the design textures and colors to come: an embossed herringbone border, duck blue envelopes, a peacock velvet ribbon, silver wreathed wax seal, textured grey liners, and a sketch of the historic Barnsley ruins.

When guests arrived on site at Barnsley, each was given a gift box with classic local food items from many cities significant to Tori and Adam. Tori’s bouquet featured calla lilies, which were in her mom’s bridal bouquet, in addition to peonies, dahlia, eucalyptus, white stock, and brunia berries.

Tori and Adam tied the knot on a chilly November day. Guests snuggled under luxe throws at a ceremony in the round, under a clear top tent beside historic Barnsley Resort manor house ruins. The natural square arbor of flowering branches surrounded the couple as they said their vows. Flower girls held floral hoops, a creative take on flower girl baskets, in addition to sparkling sneakers and custom jean jackets painted with their names.

Cocktail hour was held on the terrace and rotunda of the Georgian Hall. Tori and Adam wanted guests to get to know each other and understand how cherished they were to be present at their wedding weekend, so each person found their seat with an escort card featuring their photo, and signed a guest book that included an information page dedicated to each guest. The family Bible, old photo albums and framed wedding portraits, decorated cocktail hour tables.

After cocktail hour, the band initiated a parade to gather guests and lead them from cocktail hour into the reception space. As guests entered Savannah Hall, a large brick fireplace and towering greenery trees made a dramatic statement in the ballroom. Cane back chairs and oval farm tables brought an intimate dinner party feel, while lush greenery runners and grey velvet linens made the atmosphere luxe and warm. Custom wood bars and stage surround of herringbone pattern mirrored the herringbone brick pattern of Barnsley fireplace.

Sweet tooths, Tori and Adam, cut the pale blue wedding cake, in addition to several flavors of wedding pie, and a groom’s cake featuring Boston sports teams.

Later in the evening, Tori donned a painted denim jacket matching those gifted to the flower girls, scripted with her newly married name. The newlyweds ran through friends, waving LED lighted balloons, before hopping on a golf cart for their grand exit.
