Did you ever hear
Of the frolic fairies dear?
They’re a blessed little race,
Peeping up in fancy’s face,
In the valley, on the hill,
By the fountain and the rill;
Laughing out between the leaves
That the loving summer weaves.

I am really enjoying posting non-wedding specific inspiration right now. You can get wedding ideas from anywhere and everywhere. Although this shoot is not wedding related, wouldn’t it be amazing to have a photo shoot like this of you and your partner (or your Bridesmaids!)
A little bit gloomy, little bit gothic… a lot fun, sultry and stylish! These make me want to go play in a forest, dress up in tutu’s and cause some general mischief.

The wedding of musician Damien Jurado & photographer Sarah Murphy was a beautiful affair captured by their friend Jenny Jimenez. Don’t you just love Sarah’s dress? Their wedding was so intimate and quite frankly ridiculously stylish!

She took my breath away w!hen we first stepped in the bridal preparation room at the Rose Garden Inn. She was so elegant and so beautiful. The mood was calm, comfortable silences interrupted by feminine giggles. As she cut a part of her mother’s veil to add on to the hairpiece, I noted how important family was to her. Her red knee high boots sat in the corner as she got laced into her corset, accentuating her hourglass figure. Every move was deliberate and graceful, she was so inspiring. Everything about her was so unique, her red Wai Ching dress was perfect.
Dress: Wai Ching
Corset: Dark Garden
Headpiece: Twig and Honey

Sorry I have been a bit MIA today…how very unlike me! However there was some serious drama at my day job (gah!) and then I went to meet my bestest friend for yummy thai food and shopping. Time to catch up!
I really do have the best readers ever. You make my job so damn easy sending me stuff like this!
The Bride, Jen, wrote me a cute little email with her submission:
What a fabulous site you have! Too bad I’m finding you now (a year post nuptials) despite spending hours during the planning stages googling everything anti-bridal! Anyway, wanted to share our rock n roll wedding in brief. I sing in a band so there’s *literally* some rock n roll, and my husband is into wine, nature and beautiful food. We combined it all in our Northern California wedding. We married in an old de-consecrated Gothic chapel (with our darling pug, Siddartha, in tow) and then hosted dinner for our 60 guests in an off the beaten path restaurant overlooking the bay. The setting was simple and natural, and the food was local, organic and delicious (like my husband.) Later, some bandmates and I busted out a few tunes…though after all that wine, perhaps we should have saved it for the stage? Nah, it was fun. Anyway, here are a few pics. Our photographer was the magnificent Jennifer Skog. And our band (check us out!) is The Gun & Doll Show.
