tacy and Derek are huge foodies, so they made sure their wedding guests would enjoy a gourmet four-course meal! Their intimate wedding in Salt Lake City at the Millcreek Inn included about 50 guests and a beautiful view of the great outdoors.

I loved the impromptu toast my brother-in-law made at dinner. Derek's father had passed away a few years before our wedding and his brother made the toast in honor of their father. It was really sweet, everyone teared up.

Tristin & Lance's Alabama Country Wedding


Chattokee Lodge in Gaylesville

illed with handmade details that pay homage to their home state, Tristin and Lance's May wedding at Chattokee Lodge was anything but traditional. From flower arrangements accented with turkey feathers to mason jars with burlap details to the rustic dĂŠcor of the hunting lodge, their celebration was a Southern soirĂŠe unlike any other! Artfully Wed Spring 2014 | 27

Noteworthy Details Well Wishes from Guests

The couple repurposed a shabby chic picture frame so guests could leave behind notes and well wishes.


The rustic construction of the altar matches the venue perfectly. The addition of the Mr. and Mrs. signs, in the couple's signature font, rounds out the look.

Football rivalry

Tristin and Lance are both Alabama natives who love each other even though their families worship opposing football teams. They wanted both teams represented equally on their wedding day!

Personalized Signs

Handmade signs were prevalent on their wedding day, including one featuring the couple's last name and wedding year.

Monogrammed Cake

Instead of a traditional cake topper, the couple chose a lace-covered monogram accented by burlap rosettes, rhinestones and pearls. Artfully Wed Spring 2014 | 29

oodend Sanctuary is a 40-acre property in Montgomery County dating back to a 1699 colonial land grant. The Mansion is a Georgian Revival designed by John Russell Pope, the architect of the Jefferson Memorial and National Gallery of Art. In the 1960s, the Wells family bequeathed the Woodend Mansion to the Audubon Naturalist Society, and today it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This incredible venue was the perfect choice for Lauren and Colin's elegant, vintage-styled wedding. Artfully Wed Spring 2014 | 45

Palauea Beach


eather and Stan exchanged their vows at sunset on White Rock Beach in Maui. Deciding to elope, they jetted in from Minneapolis for their intimate ceremony. Immediately after, they adventured to Naupaka Beach for a trash the dress session in the waves. The black sand, lava rocks, red cliffs and tropical trees made for a stunning backdrop to their celebration.
