Rockin’ Kicks & Fashion to Love

Paul & Jess’ wedding was a stylish affair of rockin’ proportions. They both looked every bit the Rock n Roll couple for their Spring Lake, New Jersey nuptials…with a little help from their friends & families! Jess explains:

When we decided to keep our anniversary as our official wedding date we were just about mid-stride in working on the party at the Breakers.  I have to admit that planning for the first ceremony was pretty far from my mind.  Paul and I chose our wardrobe based basically on matching each other like we do all the time.  I bought a really beautiful black/tan dress, red shoes from shoes.com and Paul picked up a tie to match his black & tan Nike SBs from Richmond Hood. We figured we had the whole thing in the bag.

Prettiness

My mind is a-whirring with reflections of 2009, my plans for 2010 and where the Rock n Roll Bride train might take me (read: us – you’re coming on that trip with me, right?) but fret not, I am still here sharing the prettiness I know you all adore until I come up with my masterplan…just hang tight.

Cassie & Bryce are cuteness. That is all.

Glorious Springtime Vintage Styles

You went totally nuts over the ‘And so we Danced’ photo shoot I shared from Elevenorchids Photography last week so it is my absolute pleasure to share some more of their work with you today.

This glorious shoot was set up for Michestyle, a young designer who loves to celebrate vintage styles and lines by adding a modern feel to them.  She takes pride in every detail and was on set to style and do the makeup, hair and to guide the model through the entire process.

We Love Rain

I just love it when a bride & groom are fearless on their wedding day – don’t let a little rain hold you back from having wicked photographs and a hell lot of fun!

Alissa & Phil were such an amazing couple to get to know and we were instantly stoked to shoot their wedding.  Unfortunately, when we arrived at the church, it was raining, and there was no end in sight.  Now, usually at this time we are looking for other inside options to do the photos, but rain didn’t phase Alissa or the bridal party AT ALL.  So we headed out to a super cool location we found just a few days before and completely rocked it.  I also just have to say, usually when a photographer asks a bride, “Hey, there’s a sunflower field over there that would be awesome for pictures, but there is a ditch you have to hop, and it’s kind of muddy, and you’ve been standing out in the rain for an hour, and you have your wedding dress on, and it’s freezing” there is an awkward silence and usually a “NO” at the end.  But, again they proved me wrong and were up for absolutely everything we said. Alissa + Phil + Rain + Cold = Awesomeness
