Katrina & Derek Irish Pub wedding took place in Boston on the 8th of August. For me, this wedding is amazing because of all the personal touches and details – from the cyclops cake topper to Katrina’s awesome monochrome multi-layered dress (from Second Time Around on Newbury St. in Boston) and the DIY ‘flowers’ set in empty beer bottles, this wedding is definitely one worthy of Rock n Roll status!

Don’t judge me ok? I should be in bed (for those of your following me on Twitter you will have no doubt seen the regular updates about my flu!) but I have a compulsion to blog that can not be stopped…
Lisa Rigby shot this outdoor wedding last week and I can’t get enough of the lovely pastel shades. I’m not normally one for subtlety (hello? my hair is pink) but the soft hues of her blue Stephanie James Couture dress coupled with her stunning bouquet and birdcage veil are undeniably gorgeous. The wedding ceremony actually took place at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

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!

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.
