Hat, Park, Dog!

I think this wedding is quite different to the style I usually favour, but I still love it! The hat reminds me of going to English weddings where all the ladies wear big adornments on their heads.

Photographer Courtney, described this day to me:
Megan and Norm were married on May 30, 2009 at Willow Park in Louisville, Ky. That had no attendants, except for their “ring dog” Misha.

Megan didn’t opt for traditional hand-held bouquet instead chose to
compliment her outfit with a huge, gorgeous hat.
The Bride and Groom opted to accent their wedding with fleur-de-lis, a symbol of Louisville. While the guests noshed away on vegetarian friendly fare, trashcans were adorned with signs informing everyone that all the serving ware was fully biodegradable.

The music before the ceremony and during the ceremony was provided by
local musician friends, and the guests danced during the reception to the
musical stylings of a ragtime band, Rascals of Ragtyme.

A Broke Ass Wedding

After posting Dana (of The Broke Ass Bride fame) & Hunter’s awesome ‘Fresh Hubby of LA’ wedding video I thought I was done. I saw their phenomenal 

 photographs by Dan of Chennergy (who shot their wedding for free!) but decided to not share them straight away as I assumed photography as fantastic as this would pop up on all the wedding blogs. However it seems that maybe everybody else had the same idea as me, and while I’ve seen their video everywhere I look their photographs seem to have fallen to the wayside maybe just a little bit. That, my friends, is a travesty of utmost proportions. These must be seen and adored. Enjoy and be sure to check out Dana’s blog for all the juicy details.

A Tokyo Story

I love Japan rather a lot (have you noticed that about me!?) I love the fashion, the food, the people…the Hello Kitty - everything. In fact  I think there is nothing about Japan I don’t like, and Tokyo is by far the most amazing city I have ever been to. So when I clapped eyes on Sandra & Richard’s engagements by the fabulous Tealily Photography I had no doubt in my mind that a feature would be getting underway.

Photographer Trish described their shoot:
Joel and I waited at the old green carriage and the statue of the dog which seemed to be a very popular thing to do amongst the human sea of trendy Japanese and slighty overwhelmed tourists. I had only conversed with Sandra via email to that date and suddenly realised I had no idea who I was looking for until I spotted a couple of sweet faces pull through the crowd. We had decided to catch up for dinner since Joel and I were passing through Tokyo and decided to try and fit in a few shots before the light disappeared for the night.
We weren’t quite sure where to head for these photos in the crazy streets of Tokyo, but Sandra had decided to triple up this date as a bit of sightseeing for us and lead the way.

One of the many things I love about Tokyo is how diverse the city is. One minute your under the bright lights of the Shibuya crossing, then you turn a corner and your right in front of an ancient shrine. I would live there in a heartbeat.

Thank for the reminiscing Trish & Joel!

Burnt Down House Engagements

Tina & Derek’s engagements in a burnt down house are so. damn. cool! I am loving the fireplace, the awesome chair and the feather. These have such an intense beauty to them…much love! Photographer Jen Arthur also shot some post wedding portraits as the couple eloped so didn’t have pro wedding photographs, which I can’t wait to see too.

Thanks to Jen.

Princeton Wedding

Sara & Matthew have sent me their wedding along with 150 of their favourite images from the day – and nope you didn’t read that wrong! While this may be slightly over the top I have to say it is indeed a rather fabulous wedding The couple had their ceremony at an old brick house under a huge tree with a few leaves missing where they hung bird cages to tie in their bird theme. They had their portraits at Princeton University and then headed to their reception at a Brewery and instead of the usual champagne reception, the couple served samples of local beer!

 

Sara’s dress was Selena by Maggie Sottero and her shoes by Irregular Choice, her Bridesmaids wore dresses by Niteline. The Bride embarked on a DIY frenzy making the ring bearer pillows, the table numbers, the aisle decor along with the tree and the flower centrepieces themselves – phew!

Til Death

Jessie & Cat clearly love tattoos and even got matching skull & crossbones tats with the words ‘Til Death’ across their hearts – sweet! I am crazy in love with the baby Converse trainers used as a cake topper too, what a fabulous idea that is.

Thanks to Molly for these – I will be sharing more of her weddings soon!
