Katie and Patrick met at a mutual friend’s “The Office”-watching party while attending Oklahoma State University. A few study dates later, the pair became friends and remained close for three years through Katie’s graduation. It wasn’t until Patrick asked Katie to ring in the New Year with him in 2011 that the college buds became something more. Katie and Patrick dated long-distance for two years before Patrick proposed in a charming Kansas City bakery on a wintry December day: “It was an unforgettable moment in our lives and a very cherished memory for us both,” says the bride, who couldn’t believe her eyes when Patrick got down on one knee. On their wedding day, Katie walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Lazaro gown from Weddings by Debbie, while 200 family members and friends looked on. Lavish floral arrangements in ivory, light blue, and pale pink—inspired by the paintings of the bride’s late grandmother—and soft candlelight created an ethereal ambiance throughout the reception space. “It was an amazing, fun and romantic evening for all attending,” says Katie. “I could not have hoped for more perfect day!”

Amy and Elliot envisioned an upscale-rustic wedding with personal touches.

Jane met Andrew during his first week of training in her department at Four Seasons Dallas. Little did she know that after being transferred to Four Seasons Whistler they would still keep in touch. A year later after traveling back and forth to visit their mutual friends, they had their first date and the rest was history. Jane and Andrew decided that it was only appropriate, as former Four Seasons employees, to celebrate their wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Houston. “We wanted a simple yet polished design. We decorated the ballroom with soft pink, silver, gold and pops of orange to blend in with the chandeliers,” says Jane. After the reception, guests met at the pool to continue celebrating with drinks, late-night snacks, adult snow cones and a DJ from LG Entertainment that kept everyone dancing until 2 a.m. Sounds like quite the party, huh? Just wait ‘til you see the photos by DC Stanley Photography. Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Our recent Facebook post on one bride’s baby’s breath bridesmaids’ bouquets got lots of y’all talking—some loved ’em, some…not so much. One commenter suggested carnations instead, if budget was an issue. Which got us thinking: There are so many options for bridesmaids bouquets that are both budget-friendly and beautiful. The key is sticking with one or two simple, striking flower types, and taking a monochromatic approach (a pop of accent color is fine). Check out some of our favorites right here, and make sure to Pin to your wedding inspiration board or share with your florist.
