This Arkansas real wedding was gorgeous! Erin and Keenan’s Arkansas wedding ceremony was in beautiful Bella Vista. After getting ready, Erin and Kennan headed to the architecturally impressive Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel.

If you’re planning a vintage wedding, you won’t want to miss today’s Real Vintage Wedding feature! Corey and Matt’s New Haven, Connecticut wedding was beautifully styled with DIY details and plenty of vintage wedding accents. The bridesmaid dresses were all handmade by Soho Mode using vintage fabrics, the bride sewed vintage hanky bunting to display in the reception room, vintage pins were used for the table seating chart, and field flowers were displayed in tea tins for chic vintage wedding centerpieces. Instead of a wedding cake, the couple used one huge cupcake and used vintage hand-stamped forks (“I Do” and “Me Too”) with a small photo placed between the prongs of the forks. Their wedding photographer – Michelle of Michelle Gardella Photography – beautifully captured the day from start to finish. She tells us, “Corey and Matt are one of those couples that truly make this world a better place, simply by being in it. Their love for one another completely lit up the entire day, and even complete strangers on Yale’s campus stopped and swooned. While their wedding was filled with wonderful details, and meaningful decorative touches, what I love most about this day is that the focus was on what really matters- love and family.” We couldn’t agree more. Read on to see how their vintage wedding day unfolded after the jump!

Hello, hello! Happy Friday! Today’s Real Wedding feature has it all: a gorgeous couple, a beautiful California location (The North Ranch in Westlake Village), handmade wedding details, a stunning gown, hot pair of heels, purple bridesmaid dresses, one of the cutest cake toppers I’ve ever seen, and pink and white wedding details abound! Yesterday I gushed about our amazing readers and today’s Real Wedding is an example of a bride who stayed happy-as-can-be, even when a little drama happened on her wedding day. Her priest was being flown in from South Africa but had to cancel due to weather, and her hair and makeup appointment ran a few hours behind. But, instead of going into freak-out mode, her photographer, Shillawna, tells us this gorgeous girl didn’t stop smiling – not once! Isadora and Omar included charming handmade details like a ‘bride’ wedding dress hanger, custom photo booth chalkboard sign, paper poms, bunting, hanging candle votives, custom favor bags, and more… even delicate teacups (one of my many wedding obsessions, as discussed here) and charming miniature teapots. So, without further adieu, read on to see this lovely pink and white California wedding and find out more by the bride! (Wedding styled by Featured Artisan Thoey of EcoMonster and photographed by the lovely Shillawna Ruffner). Enjoy!

One of the most memorable moments of the wedding day is getting ready. The bride shares in those excited, anticipatory moments with her mom, Maid of Honor, and bridesmaids as she gets her hair and makeup done; meanwhile, the groom, Best Man, and groomsmen get ready and share in a celebratory toast. Since these moments are so unforgettable, we’re sharing the ‘Getting Ready’ portion of Maggie and Stephen’s Real Wedding today as a prelude to the ceremony and reception. Michelle of Michelle Gardella Photography captured this couple’s anticipation so vividly that one can almost feel like they’re in the room. Watch as the bride receives a special note from her groom, gives her father a teary “first look”, and smiles with bridesmaids as she prepares to walk down the aisle in 3…2…1…
