Real Wedding ~ Alicia and Dallas

Alicia and Dallas were married on Seabrook Island in a detail-packed affair photographed by Gene Ho Photography and designed by the talented team at Duvall Catering & Event Design. Blending traditional Southern charm with a chic modern aesthetic, the event was created in a unique palette of white, gray and silver with accents of black, teal and peridot. Alicia's bridesmaids carried tightly formed bouquets of green roses and wore strapless cocktail dresses in dove gray with black pumps and black floral necklaces. Alicia wore a figure-hugging gown with a trumpet silhouette, gentle ruching all over and a plunging v-neckline. She added a peacock feather hairpiece and carried a bouquet of white anemones with bold black centers. Dallas and his groomsmen wore black suits with pale gray ties and anemone boutonnieres.

The reception was held on the manicured lawn of Alicia's family home where guest tables were covered in crisp white linens and set with gloss black chivari chairs. A clear tent was draped along the sides with sheer white fabric with crystal chandeliers and white and black drum pendant lights hung at its center. Centerpiece and accent floral arrangements were created using a variety of white and green blooms, including roses, ranunculus, spider mums and orchids in mercury glass, green glass, turquoise glass and clear glass vessels. Lounge and cocktail areas were created in groups of sleek white cubes and couches paired with gleaming silver tables and accent pillows in teal silk and gray damask. A dessert bar was served indoors where the unique two-tier wedding cake formed the centerpiece surrounded by a selection of sweet treats displayed on Alicia's grandmother's silver platters. Don't miss a single detail of Alicia and Dallas' exquisite affair, including Dallas' sweet serenade while Alicia danced with her father. Enjoy!

Carlina and Alejandro had a stylish, funky little ceremony under a giant (fake) bull's head at Toro in Boston's South End. After the ceremony, Margaret and Max of Unusually Fine Photography abducted the pair for a quick shoot in a small park nearby. Carlina couldn't be any cuter: that dress from BCBG is ridiculously adorable. And check out the confetti. Oh, and the food. Alejandro is, after all, a pastry chef in Singapore. . . .
