Thrift Store Find

A few months ago, photographer Jennifer Williams’ sister found this gorgeous vintage dress in a thrift store for $10. Being the helpful sibling that she is, she knew it would be perfect for a photo shoot and so bought it right away. Jen went on to tell me the whole story:

The minute I saw it I couldn’t wait to plan a shoot centered around it! I
couldn’t get those old images of Bonnie and Clyde out of my head from the
old 1967 movie. Most of my inspiration was centered around that, although
I mixed and matched decades into my own take on vintage fashion. Then I
found out we had permission to shoot at this salvage yard and the shoot
became this beautiful classy take on grunge. As weird as it sounds, that
is the best way I can describe it.

Awesome Locations

Chad & Erin of Fuller Edge always choose the most awesome locations for their shoots. With Angel & Craig, who rocked their wedding with skull cufflinks, converse trainers, a pink wedding dress and adorable pink and green details (clicky here for the full set), Chad & Erin took them to a junkyard for these fab shots. I am loving the use of water and the texture in every single image. Wonderful!

Thanks to Chad & Erin for sending these to me. I always adore their work!

Sunset Love Story

I really need to be lying down with some honey and lemon and watching trash on tv as I’m sick…grr I don’t do well when I get ill – boredom is not my Forté. I just had to drop by and share a few little images from this Russian engagement session entitled ‘Sunset Love Story.’  Totally beautiful huh? It’s hard to choose, but I think the ‘red heart lollypop’ one has got to be my favourite. Too gorgeous!

The photographer, Katja Mukhina, will actually be touring the states in October/November of this year and would love to meet and photograph some rock n roll couples. Drop her an email if you’re game!

Until tomorrow, when I hope to be feeling less vile and able to share all the amazing weddings I’ve been sent over the weekend (I swear…they are all amazing!)

I Love This!

So I saw this wedding on I Love Lolliblog the other day and was instantly smitten. Then when photographer Christine Chang submitted the wedding to me as well I thought ‘what the hell’ and have decided to break my self-imposed rule of not re-blogging. This wedding is too damn special and too damn rock n roll to pass up!

The gorgeous Bride Kristi, who owns her own jewellery company named Diamond Willow designed and DIYed the whole wedding – from the centrepieces to her stunning peacock bouquet, the boutonnieres and her own flower hairpiece. She wore a sample gown designed by Lian Carlo and her Mum altered the neckline and made the train detachable for dancing.

The Bridesmaids have got to be some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen, rocking their Betsey Johnson frocks, white platform shoes, babies breath bouquets and personalised ‘knuckleduster’ rings designed and made by Heist Jewelry.

Thanks to Christine for sending me these and to I Love Lolliblog for sharing them to begin with!

After giving myself an impromptu day away from my computer yesterday I have come back to a plethora of emails full to bursting with weddingy gorgeousness. I can not wait to get blogging it all!

I’d better start the day with the most important announcement however..the winners of the Todd Ritondaro New York Love film contest. I have been overwhelmed with votes  – over 2400 of you took the time to read the couple’s stories and vote for your favourite – yey! It got pretty close at times but I am very excited to let you all know that the winners are….

Kate & Dan!

Woooo! Well done guys – you will be meeting up with the lovely Todd sometime next month to film your love story! I can not wait to see the final result and of course give it the premier it deserves right here on the site.

Thanks to everybody that took the time to come and vote!

Cowboys & Rockstars

Chris & Todd had two reasons to celebrate on their wedding day as Chris was 7 1/2 months pregnant! Her gorgeous dress and bolero were custom made by Elizabeth Dye and complimented her baby bump beautifully. I hope I look this radiant if I ever have kids. The couple incorporated everything they love into the day, as photographer Heather Hawksford described it – ‘canoeing, horseshoe, croquet, Pete Krebs Trio, The Dickle Brothers, cowboys & rockstars chatting over homemade beer’
Sounds perfect huh?
