Vintage Pin Up Wedding…The Engagements

Heather send me an email today telling me all about her and her fiance, Lucas’ plans for their rock n roll, vintage pinup, burlesque stylee wedding and I am so excited, I can’t wait to see the results!  The wedding is taking place on the 28th March but I have told her I want the photographs as soon as she has them as I know you will all love them!

To whet my appetite, she had send me some of their engagement shots, taken in the first car Hugh Hefner ever gave to one of his playmates (erm awesome!)  The Groom-to-be’s Dad purchased the car an at auction.  Also check out the couple’s wicked invitations – they are miniature version of an old record and album cover.  The CD (disguised as vinyl) has been placed in a paper jacket that looks like an album sleeve. The CD is also loaded with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Detroit Cobras, Rev. Horton Heat and Surf music. Tp save money, the graphic  designing couple designed and made them themselves.  I really can’t wait can you? 

For now, soak up the joy that is their engagement snaps…

    I love this!! I would love to know more about this wedding and all of the different vendors that were used. I think this is an amazing idea and I am pretty sure that I’d like to do something like this for my wedding… one day!

    Thanks,

    Deborah, Heather got back to me and told me they made their fab invites themselves.
    “We paid a company to print the CD labels for us, but that really could be done by hand to save money. We printed the sleeves flat, then cut, scored, folded, and glued them ourselves. :)”

    Hope this helps

    Hi

    I love this idea for an invitation is there anywhere to download the template for the cd cover. We’ve got our own artwork but cant find a pattern to print with.

    thanks

    Hi Kat,I think your wedding invitations are amazing! My fiance and I are both singers and would love to have invitations just like yours. Could you please give me a step by step on how to make them? I don’t quite understand how the cd’s got such a perfect “vinyl” look. Oh and your wedding pics are amazing!!!
