As the clock ticks down to the end of 2014, we like looking back on the best of the best. We highlighted the best cakes, stationery, hairstyles and bow ties, but now it's time to go for the main event: The Best Real Weddings from 2014.
Nathaniel and Dominick's love story spans years of missed opportunities, wrong timing and even a move to Africa, but the two ultimately get their happily ever after at The Foundry in Long Island City. A gorgeous event space and floral design -- and the photos taken by Angela Cappetta -- make this event a day to remember.
Sara and Melanie's engagement shoot is gorgeous at first glance, with a beachy vibe that normally wouldn't come to mind when you think of a Texas backdrop. However, Sara and Melanie are just that kind of couple: their story is full of unexpected twists, practical romanticism, and the ability to put a positive spin on anything. Once you hear their story, the pictures, beautifully taken by Melissa Claire Photography, become even more enchanting.
Bright hues and even brighter smiles have us completely smitten over Lance and John's engagement session photographed by Shaw Photography Co.
