Real Weddings | Katie's Washington Capitals Wedding Garter

Today I'm sharing pictures from bride Katie's December 14, 2013 wedding to Justin! The pair wed St Alphonsus, with a reception afterwards at the Baltimore Country Club. In Katie's words: "I knew I wanted to choose the Caps garter early on because my husband and I are huge fans and the Caps have always been a big part of our relationship! I didn't tell Justin about the garter, so it was a surprise for him when he took it off my leg! It was a great way to tie in our love for the team on our big day without being too over the top! And we kept the garter to always have a keepsake of this special memory!" Photos by Yasha at Delicate Portraits Photography.

Bianca's Custom Hulk Wedding Garter Set

Bride Bianca fell in love with my Hulk lace wedding garter set but didn't want her garters to be identical, so we did a mix-and-match set with one garter in all satin and the other in satin and lace. I love how the set turned out ~ emerald green and purple look so pretty together!

Home Team Wedding Garters

I don't pretend to be a sports fan, but I love living in Washington, and garters for our local teams and universities are some of my favorites to make. It's rare to be working on three "home team" garters in one day, and I couldn't resist taking a picture of these when they were all finished!

Real Weddings | Jennifer's University of Florida Gators Lace Wedding Garter Set

The Florida Gators have always been one of my bestselling universities, and I'm excited to share another Real Weddings post featuring the Gators today. Bride Jennifer wed Harold on May 10th, 2015 at the Addison in Boca Raton ~ in her own words: "I chose this garter because my husband and I met at the University of Florida, and when I thought of my "something blue" I immediately realized it had to be something Gator blue! The garter was so perfect, it was feminine yet fun, classy with just the right amount of loud school spirit. Most of our guests were UF alumni, so I knew the person who caught the garter would love it as well!" Photos by Emily Harris Photography

Rachael and Noah wed on January 24, 2016 at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton, California.

Custom Wedding Garters by Sugarplum Garters

Custom orders are always the most fun to work on! Bride Deanna ordered a Michigan State University Spartans garter to surprise her new husband (which was extra sweet because she is a Michigan Wolverines fan!) and decided to add a custom Star Wars garter to her order at the last minute as her groom is a huge fan. We were able to find a cute Yoda charm, and I just love how the finished product turned out!

Real Weddings | Monica's University of Florida Gators Wedding Garter

I'm thrilled to share a few pictures from Monica's wedding, including one of her Florida Gators garter! Monica wed Andrew last February at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida; in her own words: "We wanted to make sure our wedding resembled who we are. We chose the venue because of our love for history and the beautiful vintage 1920's decor. My husband went to the University of Florida for his undergrad and then again for law school; he is a huge fan of all Gator sports so after all the girly wedding decor I wanted something special that he would appreciate when he saw it, something orange and blue. Go Gators!" Photography by Heather Funk
