What with it being Christmas and all, I’ve got not one but two skateboarding couple’s to share with you today. First up, Tom & Emily looking every bit hard ass in their engagement shoot with their photographer and friend Dale. Enjoy…
The wedding ceremony was held at a small park across from the couple’s apartment in downtown Boca Raton and the reception was at the Spanish River Library outside on the terrace. For wedding favors, Maggie & Sean had custom labels made for their favorite Irish Cider, Magners, and they created a replica of their favorite pub to serve as the bar. At one point the couple even got behind the bar to tend and serve drinks themselves. The guests had a blast! The music was played by a rockabilly band, Slip & the Spin Outs. Aaron’s Catering of The Palm Beaches provided a unique menu of 50’s diner style food made elegant – mini slider burgers, lobster rolls, grilled cheese sticks in a mini martini glass, and delicious desserts. The cake was designed by a friend of the family and featured the bride and groom enjoying their Magner’s Irish Cider – complete with tiny bottles and labels. It was one of the most unique and personal cake toppers I’ve ever seen!
How exactly am I supposed to find the world to accurately describe these images and do them justice? I’m not sure I’m up to the challenge. The gothic glamour, the sense of feeling you get from these is just..well…amazing. The images certainly do all the talking here. They tell their own story.
Photographer Annie told me:
The idea for this shoot wasa real mix of rock n’ roll and art. We incorporated Tom Petty’s song, “Last Dance with Mary Jane” into a photo shoot with 2 agency models (Mirela Paraganglija, and Nima Nezhad) and a fantastic bridal gown designer. We shot it as though it was Mary Jane’s wedding day/last dance…as though it was her final send off.
Lauren & Chris had their gorgeous, heavily DIY wedding at The Maritime Hotel in NYC’s meatpacking district. The neighborhood was perfect for the
edgy and non-traditional wedding and photographs that they wanted.
The bride’s Mother made all the table decorations to fit their theme which encompased all the cities Chris & Lauren and traveled to together. All the flowers (including the bride’s bouquet) were purchased at the Union Square farmers market the day of and assembled on site by friends before the ceremony.
Kim & Alex’s wedding hit me like a steam train of epicness when I laid eyes on it. I’m pretty sure my incessant ramblings can’t bring it justice so I think it’s only fair I hand over to Kim with all the fantastic details. As usual, I’ll be back with the eye candy.
“Originally our theme was “Halloween Town” from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but as time went on, our theme evolved beyond Tim Burton to include other geeky things we love as a couple such as zombies, toys, film and… well… Halloween!
We were mostly inspired by films (predominantly Tim Burton and Zombie flicks) and our own Halloween experiences. We just looked at the little things we loved most and used that to make our wedding our own.”
