A Bride in Boots

Oh Dan & Dayna you’ve made my day! What an awesome wedding and a fantastic story. I’ve been dying to share these all weekend! I knew this would be an awesome wedding in fact as soon a photographer Matthew told me that the bride was part of the Vaudeville Circus (you can see her in action here - far right in the white dress)

“I wanted to have a rock-n-roll wedding that felt like Dan and I had our hands all over” explained Dayna  “I spent a lot of time pouring over wedding blogs and getting inspiration from cool brides.  I picked themes that we both loved like reading, hence the book center pieces and framed quotes from our favorite authors, Fall and the month of October (the colors and flowers),  simple down home (and cheap!) mason jars as vases.  All of our music the entire day was hand picked and never ‘traditional': wedding procession we had our friend play the ukulele, bridal march was Cat Powers “Sea of Love” (followed by The Honeydrippers “Sea of Love” for our first dance), our walk as husband and wife was Joey Ramone’s “Wonderful World”.  Our flower girls wore homemade tutu’s, leotards and ballet slippers. We had a drawing after dinner with silly gifts of our life so far (a DVD of the first movie we saw, a pint glass from the restaurant where we met, a dvd of “It’s a Wonderful Life” cuz we’re nerds and watch it every year…). It was a rockin’ day for sure!” 

Special thanks for photograher Matthew for sharing the images and Dayna the bride for sending me all this fabulousa info.
