Utterly Gorgeous

Seattle photographer Desiree Haigh has some seriously gorgeous friends who just so happened to make for an utterly gorgeous engagement shoot! I can see why it’s her favourite shoot to date.

Better Late Than Never

Have I or have I not been sent some absolutely out-of-this-world-amazing weddings recently? I can’t get over how many rock n roll weddings and photographers are out there…I feel so lucky!

This one winged it’s way from Ananda Lima:
Lela and Bubs got married in Central park at the Shakespeare garden. The park looked gorgeous (early Spring) and, since the ceremony happened in the early evening, they had the park pretty much to themselves. They were a little late and missed their officiant! This turned out not to be much of a problem, as their friend ended up officiating the ceremony for them. Everyone thought it was much better that way because the ceremony was very genuine and personal. After the ceremony, the couple and friend headed to the Bubble lounge for a few celebratory drinks. Everyone had a blast.  (Lela is a true RocknRoll Bride: she sand along with Bub’s in the group “Bubba the handsome”).

Thanks Ananda – I love this gorgeous couple!

You’re The One That I Want

As soon as I saw these engagements I thought to myself  ‘oooh Grease!’ and it turns out I was right, photographer Stacey Ilyse was going for a 1950’s rockabilly style with this gorgeous session.

The photos took place on Coney Island  and since Megan and Nathan love vintage, especially the 50s and are planning on having a 50s –esk Christmas wedding this upcoming Dec.  We took the photos to go with that look since they also wanted to incorporate their engagement photos into their wedding day, using moo cards with their photos on them as “ornaments” on the Christmas tree ~ on the other side will have all the guests names and table seats.

The couple are getting married in December and Stacey assures me she will send me the results afterward..woo!

Handmade

Wow. This has got to be one of my favourite DIY/handmade weddings ever…the Bride even made her dress! What a gorgeous, homely, hilarious, personal and rustic feel this beautiful barn wedding has. I have never seen so many genuinely happy people. It makes me smile.

OK so I went crazy with the amount of photographs I’m adding to this post – but you know, I was actually kinda restrained! Click here for more, including all the preparations…

Thanks Bertie (as always!)  Edit: Remember this engagement shoot? Well I’ve just realised it’s their wedding..no wonder it’s so amazing. This two are too stylish for words.
