Sleepy Hollow(een) Wedding

I don’t get to feature enough gothic style weddings so when Carmel & Drynn’s rustic yet opulent gothic affair landed on my desk I jumped at the chance to share these.

The Bride told me…
I found my dress at Gothic Wedding Dresses and our flowers were done by Punch Portland. The inspiration for our theme was based on Tim Burton-esque Sleepy Hollow, classic Victorian but with a dark feel. We are kind of “darker” individuals so we wanted that reflected but wanted to do it in a classy tasteful way. We didn’t want to scare our guests too much! We picked Drynn’s hat up at a vintage store the feather piece & my headpieces were done by Cricket Quills.

Meredith Sweet

I featured Meredith & Justin’s cute picnic engagement session a while back so it’s only fitting that I also share their wedding…especially as it turned out as pretty as this – hello…?A tea length textured dress with pockets! Meredith’s dress came from Melissa Sweet and is called Fiesole. It’s a silk strapless tea-length dress with all over horizontal net embellishment and bow at waist and is quite frankly perfect for her. Wow so jealous! hehe

It is my absolute pleasure to announce that the winner of the Toccata White Orchid bolero contest is…(dum dum duuuum….)

Racheal
My wedding is 3 weeks away and THIS is the EXACT item I’ve been looking for to complete my Mad-Men-meets-Indie-bride look {pearls, lace, feathers, and touches of leopard print}. Stunning! WAY over budget already {or else I would have the White Orchid Delux wedding dress I’ve been eyeing for an eternity}, so I’d be forever grateful to be gifted such a mindblowingly spectacular piece, but rest assured, I WILL have either the angelique or the white orchid bolero on my wedding day!

Congratulations Rachael, I am already eagerly waiting to be sent your wedding photographs after the day! Michi from Toccata will be in contact with you to get your colour choice, size and shipping address soon!

But wait dear reader, don’t be sad if you didn’t win. I know a lot of you said you would love to purchase something from her wonderful etsy store anyway, so the ever generous Michi has said that everyone that mentions Rock n Roll Bride when placing an order will also receive a free beeeautiful baroque pearl heart pendant. How fabulous will this look with your new bolero, dress, bag etc !?

Perfectly Sweet

Carnival weddings always make me smile. Jenna & Tommy’s wedding is no different.

I thought I’d share another wedding with you that I did this summer. The bride’s last name was Morrissey which made me instantly think of The Smiths (one of my most favorite bands ever). Jenna and Tommy were married in Providence, RI in Roger Williams Park. Their inspiration was that of a 1950’s carnival complete with carousel, penny candy and popcorn. The bride stole away during the reception to change into a pink vintage dress to surprise her new husband. Their first dance? “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths. Perfectly sweet.
