Aleksandra’s shoot was inspired by the 1960’s modelling icon Twiggy. Don’t you just adore it!?

Today’s treats is a little bit on the diet side because last night I went out with some of my favourite people last night and I am now mucho busy trying to catch up on the hundreds (literally) of emails that now fill my inbox. We had an utter utter blast though (totally worth it) and I wore my sparkly skull tiara. I will definitely be sharing some piccies really soon!
But oh yes, I’ve still got the yummiest treats from all over the inter-web for your perusal. In fact Rock n Roll Bride is the only place to be for all this treaty goodness. I do the searching so you don’t have to!
♥ First up, the awesome Nubby Twiglet who rebranded and refreshed my little blog featured me on hers. I got so excited to be blogged by someone I’ve admired for so long! Go check out her post to see what went on behind the scenes.

I think the phrase ‘off the hook’ was invented for engagement sessions like this. Danielle & Ed have such amazing style! First up her ring is a custom made creation by Greenlake Jewelry Works…and it’s a spider! The heart diamond in the ring actually belonged to Danielle’s Grandmother.
Secondly her shoes are in the design of The Empire State Building (wow!) by Geox and thirdly they have a crystal encrusted skull lamp that they found unadorned in a vintage shop. Danielle & Ed added all the sparkles themselves…I love it. In fact I want one!
The couple are getting married in August and are having a Marie Antoinette theme – now that’s a wedding I’m going to want to see
I love a good elopement story. I bet sometimes when the pressure of all this wedding planning rubbish really gets to you that the thought of it is a pretty attractive one huh? Well an elopement can be beautiful, meaningful and gorgeous – it’s not just all running off to Vegas and getting married by Elvis.
Sarah & Travis decided that elopement was for them as they wanted their wedding to be on their own terms – they wanted to do it their own way. The pair live Seattle but they hopped on a float plan to Canada to elope. Their photographers, Emmy & Aaron of E/A Photography, told me “When they called us they told us they wanted something different and sexy for their images so we really wanted to capture the emotion of their love in the images. We did the shoot in Bastion Square in downtown Victoria and then at the old E&N railway roundhouse. Right around the corner from the roundhouse is a bunch of condo developments and in the middle is a little hillside exploding in wildflowers – perfect spot for a champagne picnic! These two are total sweet hearts and so crazy about each other. We barely had to say a word they were just so into each other. We love their story of meeting at a wedding and just knowing they were meant to be together. ”
This awesome shoot was put together for Little White Dress bridal boutique in Bakersfield, CA. I love that a bridal shop went for such a retro rockabilly look for their promotion. “I really wanted to do an out of the box bridal shoot in a retro cigarette style ad reminiscent of the old Winston/Lucky strike ads” photographer Jeb told me.
So Michelle & Mike’s engagement sesh was awesome and Michelle’s bridals were totally gorgeous…but you ain’t see nothing yet. Just you check out their wedding!
Their “Rockabilly, car kulture, punk culture, antiques, vintage & neo-traditional design and styling, neo-gothic, country/western, low-brow art, tattoo culture, vintage pin-up/greaser” theme perfectly reflected what they loved and how they live their lives on a daily basis. They were so excited to share this with all their friends and families (and now you Rock n Roll rabble too!)
The whole wedding was perfectly put together and customised by the couple to give the day a truly unique feel. Everything from Michelle’s dress – which she bought as a ‘standard’ dress and had red tulle and the red waist panel added to it and veil – which her Mum made; to the centrepieces – which they made themselves with a mix of antique Coke bottles with sand, red water, a gerbera and curled wood; to the placecards and invitations– which they also made themselves, were unique and interesting.
