I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of jam favors for weddings, especially those in the summer during peak berry season. I know the year is beginning to wind down, and we’re moving into apple season (someone PLEASE make apple butter favors), but berries evoke that warm feeling of bright summer days that last forever. The favors were a fabulous addition to Adalie and AJ’s reception, and they even had little pig soap favors made for the children who attended since the bride loves pigs. Adalie’s mother was instrumental in designing and acquiring the decor for the wedding day, since the bride and groom live in Washington. All of her vintage rustic touches created a homey and intimate atmosphere, highlighted by bud vases, mason jar luminaries, and chalkboard signs.

There are lots of great words for swoon – being giddy, be overcome, go gaga. I’m partial to the goofier synonyms, seeing as how I’m a rather silly person, but there is nothing ridiculous about Adalie and AJ’s beautiful Pennsylvania wedding.
The first piece I fell in love with was the bride’s dress. It’s a fabulous dress for twirling, and sets the tone for an ethereal and natural wedding. The crown of flowers in Adalie’s hair, and the vest of the groom and groomsmen. . . look at that, there I go to swoon! The sweet chapel wedding was the perfect top to the first part of the day, very intimate and full of love.

Sam and Jake had a flash mob to “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” from Footloose, and they had a Lost-themed wedding.
I believe I can go home now.
Their wedding is just fantastic. It’s so them (they bonded over Lost the first time they met), and it’s a great interpretation of the themes of the show without being too over-the-top or cheesy, which I love. They used the Dharma stations from the show as table themes and it took off from there. All the decor was created by the couple who sourced items from thrift and craft stores.

Today’s bride, Sarah, offered up a piece of great wedding planning advice that I think all the newly engaged should take to heart, “Enjoy it! Start early, and don’t rush the decision making process. Make sure it’s exactly what you want.” So often brides can get caught up in having to do 568 different things, and you can lose the forest for the trees. The process is all about planning a great day for family and friends, and getting closer to your partner – even if you want to occasionally throw flowers at their head.
Sarah and Andrew went all out with the DIY elements of their wedding – invitations, centerpieces of dried flowers and frosted mason jars, making wine charms for favors (super cute!), and seating charts. When you make the decision to create elements of your wedding on your own, time is your best friend. It allows you to make decisions, then make them again, and be sure your end result is what you want – truly an extension of you and your partner.

As a diehard bookworm, the library-themed wedding of Jaclyn and Rick is vintage eye candy finest for me. All the rustic browns, oranges, and greens with great literary touches throughout the day created an atmosphere that perfectly represented the personalities of the couple. Personalized library cards greeted each guest at their place setting and Jaclyn paid homage to her Mexican heritage while also incorporating the couple’s cat into their wedding jewelry (a cameo for the bride and cufflinks for the groom).
