Quirky, Colourful, Kitsch

I am crazy in love with Tanya & Mark’s amazingly colourful DIY wedding! The event took place in Tanya’s parent’s backyard in Northampton, PA and totally reflected the couple’s quirky, colourful, kitsch style. They really put 100% of themselves into the day. Tanya made the invitations, the felt flowers, the centrepieces and most of the decorations herself and all of the tables were covered with unique vintage fabric sourced from various places throughout the wedding planning. One of my favourite details had got to be the pink flamingos everywhere though! Tanya says she has a slight obsession with John Waters so this detail was a must!

Tanya found her and her Bridesmaid’s dress from Ebay and her amazing red birdcage veil from Events and Occasions. Her shoes were from Modcloth and her red petticoat was found at Unique Vintage.

Thanks to Tanya and Mark for sharing their day and all the gorgeous details with us!

Thrift Store Find

A few months ago, photographer Jennifer Williams’ sister found this gorgeous vintage dress in a thrift store for $10. Being the helpful sibling that she is, she knew it would be perfect for a photo shoot and so bought it right away. Jen went on to tell me the whole story:

The minute I saw it I couldn’t wait to plan a shoot centered around it! I
couldn’t get those old images of Bonnie and Clyde out of my head from the
old 1967 movie. Most of my inspiration was centered around that, although
I mixed and matched decades into my own take on vintage fashion. Then I
found out we had permission to shoot at this salvage yard and the shoot
became this beautiful classy take on grunge. As weird as it sounds, that
is the best way I can describe it.

Awesome Locations

Chad & Erin of Fuller Edge always choose the most awesome locations for their shoots. With Angel & Craig, who rocked their wedding with skull cufflinks, converse trainers, a pink wedding dress and adorable pink and green details (clicky here for the full set), Chad & Erin took them to a junkyard for these fab shots. I am loving the use of water and the texture in every single image. Wonderful!

Thanks to Chad & Erin for sending these to me. I always adore their work!

Sunset Love Story

I really need to be lying down with some honey and lemon and watching trash on tv as I’m sick…grr I don’t do well when I get ill – boredom is not my Forté. I just had to drop by and share a few little images from this Russian engagement session entitled ‘Sunset Love Story.’  Totally beautiful huh? It’s hard to choose, but I think the ‘red heart lollypop’ one has got to be my favourite. Too gorgeous!

The photographer, Katja Mukhina, will actually be touring the states in October/November of this year and would love to meet and photograph some rock n roll couples. Drop her an email if you’re game!

Until tomorrow, when I hope to be feeling less vile and able to share all the amazing weddings I’ve been sent over the weekend (I swear…they are all amazing!)
