April’s weddings just seem to be the perfect fit for this wonderful spring season we’re in, don’t they? Another month of fab real weddings have gone by and now Emily, Marissa and I are rounding up the highlights! Grab an Arnold Palmer and join us, won’t you?
FAVORITE WEDDING DRESS: Emily has a deep appreciation for the classic, so Elizabeth’s lace dress was a top pick for her. Marissa was taken with Callie’s romantic gown with a pretty satin bow and I loved the peachy keenness of Stacy’s dress.
FAVORITE BRIDESMAID DRESS: The rich blue lace overlay on Amelia’s bridesmaids dresses were an instant favorite of mine. Marissa couldn’t get enough of Elizabeth’s ‘maids’ easy-going but elegant skirt and top combos. Emily was a fan of Crystal’s uniform bridesmaids — the ruffles and pink sashes get us every time!
FAVORITE FEMALE ACCESSORY: When Emily first saw Beverly’s wedding, she was instantly attracted to the cheerful yellow pashminas that the bridal party rocked. I had a bit of shoe-envy when I saw Crystal’s fab blue pumps. Marissa found herself in the same position when we featured Stacy’s glittery bow flats.
FAVORITE MENSWEAR: I loved how positively elegant Carlton and his groomsmen looked, despite a last minute tux emergency! Alex’s striped blue tie and seersucker pocket square shot to the top of Marissa’s favorites in menswear while Emily loved the unique burlap and key boutonniere that Dan sported.
FAVORITE DETAIL: Who else could resist the fun signage at Callie + Paul’s wedding? The fun detail was an instant favorite of Marissa’s. Emily adored the pink floral monogram that dressed up a hay bale at Crystal + Trip’s wedding and I was drawn to the fun and colorful glassware and vases that decorated the tables at Stacy + Adam’s reception.
FAVORITE CEREMONY: For Marissa, Stacy + Adam’s ceremony under a draped altar was perfection. The homemade details and fun colors of Callie + Paul’s wedding stole Emily’s heart. I opted for the simple and charming tree-shaded ceremony of Ansley + Carlton.
FAVORITE BOUQUET: I just couldn’t resist picking Ansley’s bouquet this month! The rich colors and mix of unique flowers won my vote. Classic and feminine with peonies and roses, Crystal’s bouquet was the choice for Emily, while Marissa was head over heels for Stacy’s full summery bouquet of sherbet-colored flowers.
FAVORITE SWEET: I think everyone’s mouth was watering when we saw the s’mores full of homemade marshmallows at Elizabeth + Alex’s wedding. It was an instant favorite of Emily’s! The clean and frosted peach-decked cake at Stacy + Adam’s wedding was the sweet of choice for Marissa, while Casey + Wojtek’s buttercream-frosted cake hit at my weak spot.
FAVORITE PHOTO: As soon as Emily saw the fun confetti throw at Stacy + Adam’s wedding, she knew it was going to be a highlight! How much fun does that look?? Marissa loved seeing the joy on the faces of Elizabeth + Alex’s bridal party after their ceremony while I instantly fell in love with the beautiful first dance moment at Callie + Paul’s wedding.
