As is customary at this time of year, I wanted to take some time to look back over the last 12 months and share with you some of my most favourite weddings, photo shoots and features. I think you’ll be hard pushed to not find something that makes you go ‘ooooh’ amongst this lot. Enjoy a-reminiscing! I’ll be back tomorrow with part 2 (there’s too much to narrow it down to just one post!) I’m also taking this slow blog-time (I like to refer to it as ‘Crimbo Limbo’ (!) to ponder my ideas and plans for Rock n Roll Bride in 2010. I’ll try and share my musings for the year ahead with you soon and would love for you to let me know what you think. It’s all about you dear reader after all…
♥ 2009 started off with a bang, with this ridiculously fabulous ‘Chicken Man and the Naked Chick’ shoot and wedding. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this before, you certainly won’t be disappointed
♥ This magician and his wife’s 1920s vintage styling was resoundly popular all over blog-land and may have even started the fake moustache revolution…it was certainly one of the first where I saw them used anyway.
♥ More vintage loving came my way with this ‘Vintage Snow’ wedding – complete with the bride looking every bit the glamorous lady in her circa 1947 Dior suit
♥ Still my favourite gown of the year..that multi-coloured tulle just sends me wild!
Photographer Kelly Moore always sends me the coolest stuff and Claira, her model, is not your typical bride. The bridal session took place a few weeks ago in Shreveport, LA and Claira looked every bit the vintage princess and like she had just stepped out of a different era. She wore her grandmothers wedding dress which I am loving when teamed with her brown, brogue-like shoes.
Jeff & Maggie got married at the courthouse in Seattle but met with their photographer Dana Pleasant a couple of weeks later to do this rad photo shoot. Maggie wore this beautiful Betsey Johnson dress that she also wore the day they got married. She really wanted some great photos in it – what an excuse! The trio headed to the international district to Kobe Terrace, which is a community garden.
Paul & Jess’ wedding was a stylish affair of rockin’ proportions. They both looked every bit the Rock n Roll couple for their Spring Lake, New Jersey nuptials…with a little help from their friends & families! Jess explains:
When we decided to keep our anniversary as our official wedding date we were just about mid-stride in working on the party at the Breakers. I have to admit that planning for the first ceremony was pretty far from my mind. Paul and I chose our wardrobe based basically on matching each other like we do all the time. I bought a really beautiful black/tan dress, red shoes from shoes.com and Paul picked up a tie to match his black & tan Nike SBs from Richmond Hood. We figured we had the whole thing in the bag.
My mind is a-whirring with reflections of 2009, my plans for 2010 and where the Rock n Roll Bride train might take me (read: us – you’re coming on that trip with me, right?) but fret not, I am still here sharing the prettiness I know you all adore until I come up with my masterplan…just hang tight.
Cassie & Bryce are cuteness. That is all.
You went totally nuts over the ‘And so we Danced’ photo shoot I shared from Elevenorchids Photography last week so it is my absolute pleasure to share some more of their work with you today.
This glorious shoot was set up for Michestyle, a young designer who loves to celebrate vintage styles and lines by adding a modern feel to them. She takes pride in every detail and was on set to style and do the makeup, hair and to guide the model through the entire process.
