An Urban Fairytale

Hurrah! Part two of Caroline Ghetes’ amazing vintage inspired bridal sessions is live! This second installment has a much more modern twist to it as Caroline wanted to show how vintage fashion can work in super modern, urban suroundings. She scoured Etsy for the majority of the gorgeous pieces to go in this shoot. The ever so popular 50’s style tea dress was from ghmarketplace, the sparkly tulle veil was handmade with vintage material from the 1940’s by Liaison, the pink and the peacock hairpieces were by Chamberry Cherry and finally the dramatic bouquet was actually made by Caroline herself. 

(Just in case you missed it, Part one is here)

Vendors involved in the shoot included:
Chamberry Cherry
Rachel Larraine
Baroque And Roll
Crimson Empress

Thanks again to Caroline for sharing these with us. I am waiting with baited breath for the third and final installment!

Offbeat Bride

Ron & Tessa got married at The Uptown Theater in Kansas City and I am crazy about their gorgeous offbeat wedding! The room they tied the knot in was called The Cabaret Room which dates back to the 1920’s but is now used to host rock concerts. This pretty much perfectly reflected their vintage, rock n roll day!

Tessa found a taffeta-free alternative vintage style dress by Allure Bridal and Ron wore a bowler hat and spectator shoes along with a vest and pocket watch, all of which added to their theme. The couple decided an over floral wedding was not for them and instead chose to incorporate feathers wherever they could. Although Tessa chose to take a walk down their beaten aisle carrying a traditional bouquet and Ron wore a boutonniere, they completely skipped the floral centrepieces, opting instead for a vast array of gorgeous ostrich plumes in teal and black to match their colour scheme. Tessa also wore a gorgeous feather hairpiece which she bought from Etsy seller YJdesign, and finally one of my favourite touches, the feather theme was rounded off by the cute bird cake topper made by Etsy seller cornflakegirl.

Thanks to Tessa & Ron for sharing their gorgeous day with us!

God Only Knows What I’d Be Without You

“Good morning, starshine… the earth says hello!”

Boy am I one crazy blogger – got to bed at 3am last night and at 8.30 this morning I am raring to go again. Sleep? What’s that? Prepare for another day of wowing by the way…

Lets get going with this simple yet beautiful backyard wedding, given a little bit of a retro feel with Danielle’s stunning dress which was made by Siri and Wade’s suit which was from Banana Republic.
Photographer Carey, loved telling me about this wedding: 
When Danielle came out to the Beach Boy’s “God Only Knows’, you knew it was going to be a great night. It was out at Wade’s family farm (just outside of Regina, Saskatchewan), and was just a really relaxed fun day. There wasn’t too much of a theme, but the little pieces added gave it a really comfy feeling. The food was bbq’d, little homemade Canadian honey was given to the guests, there was music and dancing all night, fireworks, a firepit with smores and weiner roasting, and people camping to stay the night.

Thanks to Carey for sharing the love…
