A cute couple and a rustic-chic wedding. Love it. Photographs by Rebekah J. Murray

We’ve said it before, but we love a groom in uniform. The yellow and cream color scheme is so well executed, the invitations are so charming, and the couple is just so gosh-darn cute (and the photography by Rebekah J. Murray is pretty stunning, too!). Plus, the the stately ceremony at the Naval Academy Chapel and the whimsical outdoor reception at Running Fox make a great combination. If you’re looking for rustic elegance, this wedding takes the cake.

A surprise wedding? Is that even possible? It totally is! This couple had a private ceremony with just family, then surprised their friends, who thought they were attending their engagement party, with news of their marriage. A few months later, the newlyweds had a bigger reception on the Cherry Blossom riverboat. Brilliant.

Pink was the hot color for DC weddings for a while, but it seems like yellow is slowly taking over. This Maryland celebration features charming decor, super-cute bridesmaid outfits (love the skirt-top pairing!), and pennants—lots of pennants.

Speaking of color schemes, we love when a wedding’s palette contains pretty much every single color out there. And this Annapolis wedding sure fits the bill­—such an incredible array of bright hues.
