Cupcake Bride

I am loving this rockin’ wedding. It’s all about the personal touches (again!) which you know I am loving.  As the Bride is a pastry chef she wore cupcake socks (cute!)
Enjoy these…I am looking forward to Rebecca of RAH Photography sending me many more weddings like this to feature! (Or if like me you are completely impatient, go check out her blog!)

Vintage NY Luxe

I have been looking forward to sharing some more of Aga Images’ work with you ever since I featured this amazing diy, eco, backyard wedding that they also photographed.  They are a husband and wife team who’s fine art documentary style is just perfect for such glamourous weddings such as this one. 
I asked Aga if I could feature Adrienne & Vincent’s stunning vintage inspired wedding as sometimes you need a bit of glam right?  As always, I am loving all the personal touches.  The wedding took place at Tribeca Rooftop in NYC, Adrienne’s dress is Audrey Luxe by Vera Wang and her veil was made with vintage lace.  As gifts for their Bridesmaids, the couple gave personally inspired cameos and for transport they used an old NYC taxi.

Loving these – thanks so much Aga!

Vana & Damien – The Love Story

Good morning guys. I am very excited today to share the love story of Vana & Damien, our fabulous competition winners.  I can’t wait to go to their wedding in November…they are just such an awesome couple.

Come on then guys…tell me all about yourselves!

When I first met Damien I was 12 and hanging around outside my music class. 

I spotted this cute boy with that odd 90’s curtain haircut that was all the rage (why?!) But obviously being 15 (so much older and  more sophisticated) he had no idea I was even alive.

 

At 15 I’d acquired a couple of things that made me noticeable *ahem* – and we started dating. It was a brief summer thing which ended when Damien moved to Bristol. I cried in my bedroom listening to Slayers – Undisputed Attitude for about a week, before vowing to chop my hair off, move to London and become a punk. Which I subsequently did a year later – oh the folly of youth!

 

Almost a decade later Damien got my e-mail address from a random mutual friend, and got back in touch with me. We e-mailed back and forth, and chatted on instant messenger for what seemed like ages.

Then one day he called me and said he was playing a gig in Camden and did I fancy meeting up.

 

I was so nervous I nearly didn’t go and as my friends and I were mooching around outside deciding which bar to blow the gig off for, he came out of the venue with his guitarist!

Damien tells me he knew in that instance that he’d fallen in love.

After the gig his band made their way back to Bristol minus a drummer!

We stayed up and drank ourselves sober with vodka, and talked on my sofa till 6am. Somehow he never made the train back home that day, nor the next day, or the one after that.We’ve been totally inseparable ever since.

 

Damien proposed to me on our two year anniversary, it was a rainy day and we were at Pendennis Castle.All of a sudden he starts saying “No way, that’s so beautiful – look babe”, I couldn’t look as he was peering out of a tiny teeny window and was blocking the view.

Then he turned around and all I saw was a sparkly ring.

I just started grinning like a village idiot, jumping up and down and all manner of strange sounds exited my for once speechless mouth!

 

So that’s our little love story, we’re totally blown away that Kat and David have chosen us as the winners for the competition.

It’s the best wedding present ever!

 

Are you as in love with them as I am?

Here they are the day they met up after all those years and feel in lurrrve!

Chameleon Bride!

I am loving this chameleon-esque Bride!  This cutie couple were lucky enough to get an array of talented photographers to take photographs of them!  I really wanted to share both their bridal shoot, taken by Brian Bastinelli (the photos with the red hair) and their fabulous wedding photographs, taken by the genius that is John Michael Cooper with you right now.

Staysi sent me a fantastic description of their day..hey, she sounds just like me!
Our wedding and ceremony were located at the Las Vegas Art Museum.  my black and white dress is Watters and the short white dress is Betsey Johnson. Dave is wearing Armani with custom chuck taylors with our wedding date embroidered on them.  I think our wedding was rock n roll because we didn’t try to be anything we weren’t.  Dave wanted to wear chucks, I wanted pink hair, and I did not want a white dress!  Growing up in Vegas and going to a million weddings, I knew I did not want the typical Vegas wedding at a casino banquet hall  where you could take a picture and basically change out the heads on the bride and groom and you wouldn’t know whos wedding it was.  I wanted a wedding that no one else has ever seen or been to.  We also skipped a lot of the traditional wedding things that didn’t mean anything to us and added things we thought our guests would love.  Basically we just wanted a big party, and from what everyone still says about it, we succeeded.

As always, I am loving all my wonderful readers right now, thanks so much for sending these my way Staysi!
