Yeah, so I’m just being a big old show off now (am I boring you yet?!) but I got featured in yet another magazine this month!
Huge thanks to the guys at Get Married Magazine for picking me as one of their ‘Best Loved Blogs’ (and all you little kittens who miss the ‘old look’ Rock n Roll Bride can see my old logo/header again – the feature was put together a few months ago, before my rebrand, these things take time to get to real life print!)
The magazine is available in stores across America so thanks to Get Married Magazine for winging a copy to me in Blighty. Exciting!

Mindy & David got married at The Stanley Hotel in Colorado, the hotel that provided the inspiration to Stephen King for The Shining.
“Our first thoughts about what we wanted our wedding to look and sound and feel like were all over the board” the couple told me. “Our first decision was the location. We had stayed at the Historic Stanley Hotel the summer previous, and while we were familiar with much of the folklore of the place, we were delighted to find character that goes far deeper than “haunted joint.” We had a wonderful time and felt a connection to the Stanley.”
“Touring possible locations in Denver and the surrounding area, we visited many nice places with good things to offer. When we returned to the Stanley to consider it as a wedding location, though, it was immediately evident to both of us that we found our place. Other locations offered beautiful wall finishes or breathtaking views, but no other option had the richness about it that the Stanley oozed. The often cracking paint (new paint jobs last less than a year there) and imperfections added to the individual nature of the building that really resonated with us. The main downside to the Stanley is the fact that they host multiple weddings every weekend in the summer, and we didn’t want to be ‘just another wedding.’ In the end, it just inspired us to create something individual and extraordinary.”
When Chris & Colleen contacted their photographer Jonathan, they described their wedding theme as ‘Medieval Arabic’, he knew he was in for a real treat. “When I heard that, I knew we’d be in for a ton of FUN!” he told me. The couple certainly didn’t disappoint, putting their all into their unusual and utterly gorgeous ideas.
On the 14th August, the couple got married in the beautiful rural setting of Verona, NY. The groom is in a band call Blood Ceremony (and will be on tour in Europe next Spring) so as you can imagine this was one truly authentic Rock n Roll wedding! “With a band name like Blood Ceremony, one may expect certain aesthetic details in its Bass Guitarist’s Wedding Ceremony,” Jonathan continued. “As the photographer, I came with an open mind and a wild imagination fueled with thoughts of what I read online regarding the band. Most notably, the Toronto based band is self described as being “anti-war, but pro-horror”. The description of the music was cryptic and engaging; ‘Now we slay the stages of the universe with heavy riffs, paranoia-inducing trills and 1970s fills.”
“I did further research and discovered that their influences were rooted in bands that I knew like Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, and The Who. But they were also inspired from things that I wasn’t so familiar with, like mystical forests, candlelit chambers, gothic castles, and Euro-horror films. Needless to say-this Wedding had the potential to be very Rock and Roll!”
Dave & Kirsten’s kooky and personal wedding was created as a perfect reflection of them as a couple. Their love of tattoos, fashion and all things vintage was their inspiration and what really shone through on their day.
The bride knew she wanted a flattering tea-length dress but after a fruitless search in dress shops and even online, she decided the best way to get her perfect gown was to create it herself. She went to the drawing board and drew out her ideal dress which she then brought to a seamstress who worked with her to make it. She accessories with a blue birdcage veil which she picked up from a vintage shop in Chicago. She picked the colour to match her bridesmaid’s dresses. Finally, to complete her look she wore one of a kind jewellery all made for her by friends.
As wedding gifts to each other, the tattoo-loving couple both got matching bird tattoos and as an extra special gift to his bride, Dave restored a 1968 Lincoln Continental which he surprised Kirsten with on the day! How amazing is that?!
As a final, super personal touch, instead of favours, the couple made a donation in their honour to Mia’s Children – an orphanage that educates and houses homeless children in Bucharest, Romania. Kirsten used to work for this foundation and so this was something very close to her heart too.
I was honoured and super-duper excited to be interviewed for Eco Beautiful Weddings Fall 2010 edition. The magazine is now online so head over and check me out on page 32-35!
