Sarah & Jason’s Perfect-for-Them Wedding

One of the (many) things I love about Rock n Roll Brides is how different you all are. You are diverse and fabulous in you own unique ways and that makes me so happy! I love the way I see you all bring who you are to the table, to create the perfect wedding for YOU. It’s great to get inspiration from wedding blogs like this one, but at the end of the day it’s you + your fiancé who should create YOUR perfect wedding.

Sarah & Jason did just that.

“What made us Rock n Roll, was that from the beginning, we just couldn’t picture us having a traditional wedding. We felt like it would have been fake for us,” began the bride. “That’s fine for some people, and we don’t begrudge anyone the right to the kind of wedding they want, but we wanted something that was all about us. There are very few things I love more than being the center of attention, so it was really important to me that our personalities were on display from beginning to end. From the black envelopes our invitations went out in, to the amount of glitter on the tables, everything was picked and placed specifically by us. We had a vision for what we wanted and what we didn’t care about, and we met with very little resistance from anyone. We weren’t planning a “wedding” so much as planning our dream party.


“Planning our wedding wasn’t the joyous event a lot of people make wedding planning out to be. My sisters and mom had moved out of state, so I was on my own a lot,” Sarah continued. “I was planning a wedding in Bakersfield, while living in LA. It was really overwhelming, and I was lucky that my bridesmaids were helpful in any way they could be. I stressed out about it a lot, and then just decided that as long as everyone had fun, as long as our wedding was full of love, nothing else really mattered. We had a small budget, that we mostly funded ourselves. I learned that we didn’t need all the stuff the bridal “machine” pushes on brides. We spent our money on things that were most important to us, and cut corners where we could. Little touches, that speak to your personalities, make a big impact.”

    Wow, a truly stunning wedding. She looks fantastic – I’m a sucker for a black belt on a wedding dress and who doesn’t love some Betsey Johnson sparkle.
    The whole day looks perfect – completely rock and roll.

  2. Sarah and Jason had a vision for their perfect day, and I think they totally accomplished it. Thank you so much Kat for featuring this special wedding!

  3. Wow! I adore the colours and and all the sparkle on the tables. Such a galm and stylish wedding. They look so happy and in love too which is what it’s all about! xxx

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone! I was so happy with the way our wedding turned out. Every little detail we planned, all came together in a big way. And thank you for the compliments on my wedding look! I based my makeup, hair and tiara on Priscilla Presley at her wedding to Elvis. I can’t get enough black eyeliner! Haha

    Thank you, Kat, for featuring us! We’re crazy excited!

    Oh! If anyone watches the video, the song it’s set to, is the song my flower girls and I came down the aisle to. It felt like being in a dream!

    Love this wedding, especially the Betsey jewelry and the bridesmaids’ bright shoes! Where did the groom & groomsmen get their outfits? My fiance is looking for a gray suit just like that!

    I am MORE than in love with the pink bridesmaids shoes! I also love how you’ve let them go crazy on their shoe choices – it’s perfect. I am also nodding furiously with your wedding philosophy, I just love the whole kitten kaboodle. (Are people still saying that?)

  7. what an amazing and beautiful wedding. the bride is stunning, and i hope i look half as gorgeous as she does at my own wedding one day xox

  8. What a gorgeous lady! I’ll probably be the first to say it… but it is so refreshing to see a bride who isn’t stick thin!!!
    I love her hair, and the dress. I LOVE a wedding dress with a dash of black!
