Urban Grunge & Diy to Die for

Shaun & Jacinta must be every wedding photographer’s dream clients! With Jacinta being a fashion designer and Shaun an illustrator, their wedding was always going to be too damn cool for words. Jacinta designed and made her own dress over 3-4 weeks (I know, I can’t believe it either!) which incorporated a print designed by Shaun (!) The pair worked together to decide on few ideas of what to have in the design to make it perfect for them and to represent both their families. They wanted it to include a Maltese cross to represent Jacinta’s heritage and one of Shaun’s mother’s favourite flowers, Chrysanthemums.

Antique Market Dreams

I have much love for Chicago photographer Jeremy Lawson  and it’s always a pleasure to feature his Rock n Roll weddings – especially when they are as awesome as the one of Mary & Alton.

The wedding took place at the uber cool Salvage One, which, with it’s awesome signage and rustic, almost derelict, antique market interior  provided the perfect backdrop to the event. Mary’s vintage look was provided by local Chicago design  Jess Audey who custom made her beautiful dress and Antje Kastner at Tigerlilie who did her retro/rockabilly style hair and make up.

Rock n Roll Sophistication

Rita & Hai’s wedding portraits had me at hello. From her incredible summer dress from Barney’s CO OP that was altered to be a wedding dress, to her flower sash which was custom made by Pish Posh on Etsy and her Diba shoes from Nordstrom. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful silk chiffon Taryn dresses from J Crew and Hai donned a Michael Kors suit with a Burberry tie, J Crew socks and Converse All Stars. The whole thing just screams Rock n Roll sophistication!

A Perfect Reflection

Jessica & Kevin’s wedding was planned as the perfect reflection of them. Jessica, a title assistant and Kevin, a loan officer, both enjoy activities like camping, movies and music and so they made sure that all bases were covered for their wedding.

The couple got married in March Hacienda Restaurant in Santa Ana, CA. Jessica found her dress in the outlet section of Mon Amie bridal boutique in Costa Mesa, CA, but it didn’t have any labels on it so she was unsure of the desinger  – does anybody know?!  Her shoes were purple “Ivana” pumps by RSVP and her veil was made by Jessica’s mother Tammy.  Jessica’s maid of honor Lindsey and her mother (Lindsey Mac Designs) made her earrings and necklace.

Procedure: Molecular Fusion

I found a linky to the wedding of UBER UBER UBER cool recent bride and artist Zoetica Ebb & her writer husband Ales Kot on Gala Darling last week and literally couldn’t wait to share it with you – especially after I visited Zoetica’s inspiring website and laid eyes on her sparkly, blue, fauxhalk! Serious hair envy batman!

The pair actually got officially married in a microscopic civil ceremony June as Ales is a Czech citizen (you can see Zoetica’s post on the event here including their adorable ‘leaving the ceremony’ video) so the couple decided that a second ‘just for show’ ceremony didn’t make sense so their wedding was actually just a big old Rock n Roll celebration!

Zoetica wore the parachute gown from All Saints, which was a gift from her friend Courtney and a necklace from her husband, a keishi pearl and black garnet beaded necklace with pyritized ammonite pendant and three pink sapphire drops, by Ria Charisse, purchased through the lovely folks at Gold Bug Pasadena. The pair also had custom-sculpted and cast rings made by Shane Case. “We wanted a texture that looked somewhere between bark and flesh and the lunar surface” Zoetica told me.
