Best of Real Weddings
Taylor Tomasi and Johnathan Hill
Dallas; May 17, 2008
For this glam twosome, something old met something new in a posh throwback to the 1920s. The result was a jazzed-up garden party (and roaring good time!) worthy of Jay Gatsby himself.
Kate Duong and Ian Berry
San Anselmo, California; September 16, 2007
With an earthy palette, faux-bois details, and a dessert bar fit for an enchanted forest, this couple turned the pastoral grounds of a friend’s home into an affair to remember. We were so impressed when we saw it, we hired the bride! Today, she’s our style director.
Randi Brookman and Jacob Harris
New York City, July 17, 2005
Where do city slickers get hitched? In a sprawling loft with breathtaking skyline views, of course. The sleek space proved the perfect canvas for this artsy duo’s pared-down vision of clean lines and pops of color.
Lena Corwin and Joshua Dreier
Twain Harte, California, August 20, 2005
From her vintage frock to far-out fabrics and a surf band that kept the good vibrations going late into the night, this print-happy pair and their eclectic group of guests paid homage to all things ’60s and ’70s.
Elizabeth Wilks and Colin Van Dervort
Great Exuma, Bahamas, May 13, 2010
Two years ago we teamed up with Sandals Resorts to offer one lucky couple the day of their dreams -- on a tropical island, no less. The outcome? A casually sophisticated seaside soiree.
Jayme Smith and Chris Murray
Wrightsville, Pennsylvania, May 10, 2008
Learning to letterpress isn’t for everyone, but that was just the beginning for this ambitious duo. They opted to design every aspect of their cheery countryside nuptials -- folding, sewing, and printing their way to wedded bliss.
Jodi Healy and Jon Pritchett
Sundance, Utah, January 31, 2009
Envisioning an intimate escape with friends and family, a pair of avid skiers headed to the Rockies for a rustic-chic fete full of alpine elements, snowy blooms, and cozy details.
Lily Fink and John Harrington
Santa Barbara, California, September 8, 2007
With a nod to nostalgia, two lovebirds infused their fairy-tale afternoon at the bride’s childhood home with beloved family heirlooms and plenty of tradition.
Gail Simmons and Jeremy Abrams
Long Island City, New York, August 17, 2008
She’s a "Top Chef" judge, so it’s no wonder her wedding was ripe with the season’s freshest flavors. Mix in vibrant colors, homespun touches, and a communal vibe, and it was a feast for all five senses.
Cheree Berry and Jeff York
St. Louis, September 13, 2008
The golden rule for weddings? They should be F-U-N! That was no problem for this couple, one half of which (that would be the beaming bride) is a stationer known for her joyful designs and creative use of color.
