It is my absolute pleasure to announce that the winner of the Toccata White Orchid bolero contest is…(dum dum duuuum….)

Racheal
My wedding is 3 weeks away and THIS is the EXACT item I’ve been looking for to complete my Mad-Men-meets-Indie-bride look {pearls, lace, feathers, and touches of leopard print}. Stunning! WAY over budget already {or else I would have the White Orchid Delux wedding dress I’ve been eyeing for an eternity}, so I’d be forever grateful to be gifted such a mindblowingly spectacular piece, but rest assured, I WILL have either the angelique or the white orchid bolero on my wedding day!

Congratulations Rachael, I am already eagerly waiting to be sent your wedding photographs after the day! Michi from Toccata will be in contact with you to get your colour choice, size and shipping address soon!

But wait dear reader, don’t be sad if you didn’t win. I know a lot of you said you would love to purchase something from her wonderful etsy store anyway, so the ever generous Michi has said that everyone that mentions Rock n Roll Bride when placing an order will also receive a free beeeautiful baroque pearl heart pendant. How fabulous will this look with your new bolero, dress, bag etc !?

Perfectly Sweet

Carnival weddings always make me smile. Jenna & Tommy’s wedding is no different.

I thought I’d share another wedding with you that I did this summer. The bride’s last name was Morrissey which made me instantly think of The Smiths (one of my most favorite bands ever). Jenna and Tommy were married in Providence, RI in Roger Williams Park. Their inspiration was that of a 1950’s carnival complete with carousel, penny candy and popcorn. The bride stole away during the reception to change into a pink vintage dress to surprise her new husband. Their first dance? “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths. Perfectly sweet.

Vintage Glam & Fun

Chris & Carly’s vintage glam wedding was planned with fun in mind..that was it – lets have a blast! The pair didn’t want traditions or fuss to play a part, instead focusing on great style (white bridesmaid dresses oh yes!), a ton of character and a party that they could claim as their own.

The Corpse Bride

With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year and it being a distinctly unconventional theme for a wedding, I have not at all been surprised to receive a number of spooky themed weddings that took place last weekend. I’m kicking today off with Colinne & Shane’s wedding. Some of my favourite details include Colinne’s choice of converse trainers under her dress plus her black diamond engagement ring, the lucky rabbit’s foot that accompanied her bouquet and acted as her ‘something old’. The couple even used the vows from The Corpse Bride as their own!

Obsessional, Moi?!

I’m trying these new thing where I do all my writing in the mornings and schedule my posts throughout the day so that a) I don’t end up posting post after post after post and b) so that I actually have time to do other stuff instead of just blogging! However I’ve popped online this evening to reply to the plethora of emails that has built up over the last few hours and look…the ting is I literally could not wait until tomorrow to share these. Forgive me!

A Shoot to Remember

Unable to shoot her cousin’s wedding, Lauri of Zoom Photography decided to give Kaya & Jon a day after shoot to remember!

Kaya and Jon are a true meeting of the minds. She works in advertising and he in finance, living in their Chicago loft, mostly run by their pug Chloe and bulldog Sebastian. Jon’s passionate love of music is apparent from the moment you meet him, his inspired word choice, verbose nature and unsurpassed loyalty also make an immediate impression. Kaya’s extroverted and vivacious qualities, coupled with her caring and generous nature make her noticeably standout in a room full of loud and boisterous people.
