Industrial and Bohemian Wedding in Phoenix

Downtown Phoenix wedding (8)

The wedding of Chris and Brielle was held at The Icehouse in Downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Their goal was to save as much money as possible, but still have a beautiful wedding.

“I wanted everyone to remember the wedding as beautiful and a reflection of the love that we share”, said Brielle. “Who says you can’t have a gorgeous wedding on a budget!? It was exactly what I had imagined and more. The space already had so much character; it didn’t need an overload of décor. I searched every bargain shop for the decorations. Nothing about my style usually matches so my wedding decorations didn’t need to match either.”

“The signs were either paintings or photo frames that I bought from Goodwill and turned into chalkboards, the cocktail room had photo holders made from candlesticks and wine corks (yes, wine was consumed to retrieve those), my flower crown, bouquet and bridesmaid’s bouquets were all made by my friend, Meredith. Also the wands for the getaway were made out of strips of cloth and wooden sticks, sparklers take too long to light!”

Glamorous & Bohemian Wedding Inspired by Vogue

VogueWedding_VanillaPhotography-586

There are some weddings I see where I wonder if it’s actually photo shoot with models. Tyrone, Camilla and their whole wedding party are so goddamn stunning, they almost don’t seem real!

But I assure you, this is a real wedding. It took place in South Africa on March 28th. “I’m not a traditional kind of girl, so I knew our wedding wouldn’t be very typical”, began Camilla. “I think if I had to choose the things that made our wedding slightly more unique were definitely our photos; I loved the idea of having a wedding album that looked more like a fashion editorial and I spent the day yelling ‘Vogue!’ at the groomsmen to get their Blue-Steel on!”

As if you’re not already feeling envious enough, Camilla actually designed her own wedding dress as well as the dresses her bridesmaids wore (is there no end to her talents?!) and had them made by a local dressmaker. They also planned and executed the entire wedding themselves, without the help of a wedding planner. “Champagne and nude have always been my colours, so I knew I wanted a different kind of dress”, she continued. “The fabric can from Bridal & Fabric World and was exactly what I had envisioned. I was also so keen to get my bridesmaids in leather jackets. I had a vision and it worked out so well! I think also having my brother-in-law with all of us girls put the cherry on top; he was our ultimate accessory.”

Bohemian Festival Of Love Wedding

אמה ועופר חתונה ברשפון

Emma and Ofer wanted a wedding that was the perfect combination of a festival of love, with great music, good food and plenty of little details. The day was held in an olive grove in Tel Aviv.

“Above all we wanted our wedding to be comfy!”, explained the bride. “We wanted a wedding where our guests wouldn’t want to leave, where every corner you looked you would see a different cuddle puddle. We were ultimately the most inspired by our home and what we envision for our future home. We’re currently city dwellers aiming for a farm family one day. So we took an olive garden with nothing but trees and brought our living room (and much much more) with us!”

The reception setting was a mixture of boho chic and some native American Indian touches. Eclectic living room furnitures from Tel Aviv’s flea market along with cactus and aloe plants were laid out. The whole set up took three days! The couple also brought along their own furniture which they built themselves.

Bohemian Family Wedding in Poland

Ania and Stach did not want a formal day or a church ceremony, but they also didn’t want to do the registry office thing, “We thought it would strip the magic away” the bride said. So instead they decided to marry on the hill near the groom’s parent’s cottage. They had the reception in a barn on the same land.

“Stach’s parents have a summer house in Suwalszczyzna, which is a beautiful place in the northern Poland. This place is especially important to us and we spend there all the time we can. The house is in the middle of nowhere and the nature there is enchanting. We thought that having the wedding there would make it a great celebration. We also wanted to show other people the place that meant so much to us – and thought it would be a beautiful opportunity. We brought 300 people from all around the Poland (and beyond) to the place they would never visit otherwise!”

Barefoot Bohemian Hippie Wedding

Bronwyn-Sara and Jesse were married at Red River Valley in Tennessee. “Tradition is the last thing that describes what Jesse and I wanted”, the bride began. “We drove my mother-in law-crazy with our ideas. We threw tradition to the side and did our own thing with our thrift store purchases and last minute planning!”

The bride bought her dress on Craigslist, wore no shoes (just like most of the wedding party) and did her own make up. Her bridesmaids were in various vintage style dresses bought from places like David’s Bridal, Etsy and thrift stores!

Pretty Boho Picnic Wedding in Belgium

Boho Wedding Roxane & Pierre - Kasia Skrzypek Photographer (38)

For Roxane and Pierre, a relaxed homespun wedding was perfect. Their small ceremony was held at city hall, and they hosted the reception in the bride’s house. “Pierre and I met in Qatar, where we both work as airline pilots”, the bride began. “Everything happened very fast and after eight months together we decided to move in together. The only problem was that you are not allowed to live together without being married in Qatar so we decided to get married!”

“We organised everything in 6 months”, wrote the bride. “We wanted to do a picnic in a field very close to my house in Belgium, because it’s a place that I love and we both love nature. For that reason, everything had to be simple, especially as we both live so far away. Our priorities were having our families and close friends there, and lots of cheese, wine and champagne!”

Roxane wore two beautiful lace dresses, both super affordable. Her long sleeved ceremony dress was, unbelievably, from H&M and her reception one was from Lookbook Store. “I wanted a short dress that looked simple”, she said. “I found one in H&M that I liked, but at first it didn’t feel like ‘the one’, and then I found another one on Lookbook Store. I loved both of them and I didn’t know which one to wear so in the end I wore both!”
