Offbeat Bride

Ron & Tessa got married at The Uptown Theater in Kansas City and I am crazy about their gorgeous offbeat wedding! The room they tied the knot in was called The Cabaret Room which dates back to the 1920’s but is now used to host rock concerts. This pretty much perfectly reflected their vintage, rock n roll day!

Tessa found a taffeta-free alternative vintage style dress by Allure Bridal and Ron wore a bowler hat and spectator shoes along with a vest and pocket watch, all of which added to their theme. The couple decided an over floral wedding was not for them and instead chose to incorporate feathers wherever they could. Although Tessa chose to take a walk down their beaten aisle carrying a traditional bouquet and Ron wore a boutonniere, they completely skipped the floral centrepieces, opting instead for a vast array of gorgeous ostrich plumes in teal and black to match their colour scheme. Tessa also wore a gorgeous feather hairpiece which she bought from Etsy seller YJdesign, and finally one of my favourite touches, the feather theme was rounded off by the cute bird cake topper made by Etsy seller cornflakegirl.

Thanks to Tessa & Ron for sharing their gorgeous day with us!

God Only Knows What I’d Be Without You

“Good morning, starshine… the earth says hello!”

Boy am I one crazy blogger – got to bed at 3am last night and at 8.30 this morning I am raring to go again. Sleep? What’s that? Prepare for another day of wowing by the way…

Lets get going with this simple yet beautiful backyard wedding, given a little bit of a retro feel with Danielle’s stunning dress which was made by Siri and Wade’s suit which was from Banana Republic.
Photographer Carey, loved telling me about this wedding: 
When Danielle came out to the Beach Boy’s “God Only Knows’, you knew it was going to be a great night. It was out at Wade’s family farm (just outside of Regina, Saskatchewan), and was just a really relaxed fun day. There wasn’t too much of a theme, but the little pieces added gave it a really comfy feeling. The food was bbq’d, little homemade Canadian honey was given to the guests, there was music and dancing all night, fireworks, a firepit with smores and weiner roasting, and people camping to stay the night.

Thanks to Carey for sharing the love…

It’s past 1am but being a blog-a-holic I couldn’t go to bed without sharing this awesome awesome engagement shoot by the wonderfully talented Caroline Tran. Surely the photographs speak for themselves right? I can not really put constructive sentences together at this hour of the am, but I can just about fathom a ‘{squeeal} love that pink petticoat!’

See you all at a much more reasonable hour tomorrow!

My Turn To Get Blogged

It’s great to feature so many wonderfully talented people and their work on my site but it was nice to get a little blog love back today.

Go check out Mirror Online, a Swedish online magazine and Always Andri Wedding Design, some UK wedding planners, that both wrote a little something about Rock n Roll Bride today.

What is a Rock ‘n Roll Wedding?

If you would like to have a more personal wedding and not one that the rest of the wedding industry recommends, which most often is a really expensive and an already copied concept that you can read about in all different wedding magazines, then be sure to head over to Rock n Roll Bride.

To have a rock ‘n roll wedding you do not need to buy the whole parcel, you don’t need to be totally covered in tattoos from top of your head to tip of your toe or play heavy metal music at the altar, you don’t need to be in the darkest forest, but it is ok to have it like that. To have one of these kinds of weddings is to dare a bit and to come up with the idea of what reflects who you together with your partner are. To dare to show your love in your way the rock n roll way.
A rock ‘n roll wedding is a wedding where the bride couple chose to make the big day of there life to a day that which strengthen there love in there fantastic way.

Gotta love the crude Swedish to English translation, isn’t it super cute?

Both articles have also featured some of my favourite weddings and photographers from the last few months, so why not head over to refresh your memory with some of these little gems?

Urban Outfit

Do you ♥ this couple as much as I do? I’m sure that’s pretty much impossible. The checked shirt-dress, the skateboarding, the cyan/teal old bicycle, the sunglasses, the handstands, the vintage cameras. As photographer Mary Wyar said, they do in fact look like they just stepped out of an Urban Outfitters catalogue and I really really love that shop. Oh yes, I pretty much adore Mary & Scott…

Huge thanks to photographer Mary for sharing these, I look forward to seeing more stuff like this as she steps forward and takes her photography in this new pretty damn awesome direction.
