Faith & Joe didn’t have much time to plan their wedding, especially as they live in Portland but chose to have the event in California as lots of their friends and family lived here. They also decided to do the whole thing in a super thrifty way. This however, led them to have a truly unique, personal DIY wedding. Friends and family also helped them out wherever they could with her Mum making the cake, the dried flowers for the bouquets, boutonnieres and decorations being donated and Faith getting her gorgeous dress from a thrift store, adding the tulle and brown sash herself and even making her own veil.
This has got to be one of the sweetest and most stylish DIY weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing with you all. Thanks to photographerShannon Moorefor sharing!
When this video landed in my inbox I knew from the first second of watching it that I’d feature it. Why? The Power Of Love baby! The hubby as I walked back up the aisle to this tune on our wedding day so not only did it bring all those lovely weddingyfeelings back for me, but it’s just a damn good song. We chose it for our own wedding as my favourite film of all time is Back to The Future, and I think Courtney & David’s wedding has this same feel of retro gorgeousness. Isn’t her dress just divine? be sure to watch the video to the end or the dramatic and surprising finale…what luck to catch that on film.
Yep, this is what I love about the weddings I feature – the awesome uniqueness. Sometimes I find it hard not to share the same picture perfect weddings I see popping up all over blog-land and I even have to give myself a little talking to sometimes and tell myself you love little old Rock n Roll Bride for how different the wedding’s that I feature are… right?
Now Megan & Bob’s wedding’s pretty prettiness goes without saying, but I’m loving that the Groom dressed as Doctor Who and the Bride wore her something blue on her toes. Cute and original..and that bloody rocks.
Kudos to photographer Ashley for sharing the geek chic love
This sugary sweet engagement session is full of fun and frolics and I have been dying to get these up all day. Bridget and Dan chose Balboa Island for their shoot as they will be getting married there in September at her grandparents house. The candy bouquet was quickly put together by the photographer, Crissy after she saw them in cute little bunches at a local shop, and the stick on moustaches were bought on Etsy.
Thanks to Crissy for sharing these sweet as cherry pie shots with me!
