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.
Chris & Carly’s vintage glam wedding was planned with fun in mind..that was it – lets have a blast! The pair didn’t want traditions or fuss to play a part, instead focusing on great style (white bridesmaid dresses oh yes!), a ton of character and a party that they could claim as their own.
With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year and it being a distinctly unconventional theme for a wedding, I have not at all been surprised to receive a number of spooky themed weddings that took place last weekend. I’m kicking today off with Colinne & Shane’s wedding. Some of my favourite details include Colinne’s choice of converse trainers under her dress plus her black diamond engagement ring, the lucky rabbit’s foot that accompanied her bouquet and acted as her ‘something old’. The couple even used the vows from The Corpse Bride as their own!
I’m trying these new thing where I do all my writing in the mornings and schedule my posts throughout the day so that a) I don’t end up posting post after post after post and b) so that I actually have time to do other stuff instead of just blogging! However I’ve popped online this evening to reply to the plethora of emails that has built up over the last few hours and look…the ting is I literally could not wait until tomorrow to share these. Forgive me!
Unable to shoot her cousin’s wedding, Lauri of Zoom Photography decided to give Kaya & Jon a day after shoot to remember!
Kaya and Jon are a true meeting of the minds. She works in advertising and he in finance, living in their Chicago loft, mostly run by their pug Chloe and bulldog Sebastian. Jon’s passionate love of music is apparent from the moment you meet him, his inspired word choice, verbose nature and unsurpassed loyalty also make an immediate impression. Kaya’s extroverted and vivacious qualities, coupled with her caring and generous nature make her noticeably standout in a room full of loud and boisterous people.
I can not put into words how blown away I have been with the response to the Love Me Do Photography contest. In just a week we had 25,557 votes! Is that ridiculous or is that ridiculous!? I have been blown away by it. Thank you so so much everyone…
So without further a do the winners are (drumroll please…)
Gaelyn & John
This was by far the closest contest I have ever hosted, it was literally anybody’s game all week.
♥ Again, thank you to everybody who took the time to come and vote ♥
