Red & Black Rockabilly Wedding

Red & Black Rockabilly Wedding (32)

Sarah and Matt’s wedding had a 1950s vibe with both a retro rockabilly and new rocker twist. Their colours were red and black and the bride even wore a striking black gown! “We wanted to tie in our passion for music with a pin up and Rock n Roll theme”, said Sarah. “Matt also loves cars so the theme was perfect.”

The bride’s dress was a prom dress from David’s Bridal. “Matt and I went and picked out my black dress together. We went together because my bridesmaids both lived out of state and couldn’t make the trip. I tried on many wedding dresses but they didn’t feel right, we both couldn’t see me in white. We decided that the black would signify ’til death do we part’ and give us that rocker vibe we both saw in our theme.”

The Way Out Wedding: A Movie

way out wedding (5)

When people ask me what makes a ‘Rock n Roll wedding’ I always respond by saying its not all about jumping out of airplanes… but that sometimes it is! Just check out Andrew and Ariel’s incredible wedding video if you don’t believe me!

It’s been a long time since I featured just a wedding video, but I think you’ll all agree this one is amazing enough to stand on its own. This high impact, adrenaline junkie’s dream is a proposal and wedding film all in one!

You are going to love watching this, it’s more like a high production value movie than a wedding video. But when the groom owns a production company, what do you expect!?

Here’s their story:

“Ariel and I were set up four years ago by two mutual friends and early in the first date I knew we were very similar”, said the groom, Andrew. “We had both lived in 5 cities and 5 years and constantly yearned for adventure. Quickly our dates turned into road trips, camping, back country flying and airshows, which only cemented the fact that I needed to officially make her my partner in crime.”

“So in January 2015, on our way to the mountains of North Carolina, I asked if she would help me get a shot for a film my production company was putting together. It was an odd request, since I am not the cameraman, but she did not think too far into it. It was freezing, so she was not thrilled to do a yoga scene; however she obliged. Quickly into the shoot, I told her that it was all a big joke and she stormed off. Luckily I was able to corral her back over in front of the camera, where I dropped to the knee and asked if she would marry me. She said yes and the adventure planning began.”

Quirky New York City Elopement

Luda and Ayal NYC elopement by Niv Shimshon Photography (72)

When they discovered that their country’s laws prevented them having the wedding they really wanted, Israelis Luda and Ayal decided to elope in NYC.

“We couldn’t get married the way we wanted in our own country (in Israel only religious marriages are legal)”, explained the bride. “So we’ve decided to get married in New York City. It was a natural choice for us since Ayal is an American citizen and he used to live in Williamsburg. Some of Ayal’s family still lives in the US, and they were able to make the trip and attend the City Hall wedding. If we were to have any theme I guess it was the city itself!”

The bride designed her own dress with help from a fashion designer friend. “I designed the dress and a good friend of mine who is the owner of an underground and street-style store in Tel-Aviv, helped me with the final design and the sewing. I also made my own wedding bouquet. I wanted white flowers with black feathers. We thought that it will be easy to find someone who could make it when we arrived in New York but we couldn’t! The white flowers were easy but we couldn’t find anyone that could add the black feathers too. So we improvised. Ayal bought a feather duster from Kmart, took the feathers out and made the bouquet I wanted!”
