A Broke Ass Wedding

After posting Dana (of The Broke Ass Bride fame) & Hunter’s awesome ‘Fresh Hubby of LA’ wedding video I thought I was done. I saw their phenomenal 

 photographs by Dan of Chennergy (who shot their wedding for free!) but decided to not share them straight away as I assumed photography as fantastic as this would pop up on all the wedding blogs. However it seems that maybe everybody else had the same idea as me, and while I’ve seen their video everywhere I look their photographs seem to have fallen to the wayside maybe just a little bit. That, my friends, is a travesty of utmost proportions. These must be seen and adored. Enjoy and be sure to check out Dana’s blog for all the juicy details.

Princeton Wedding

Sara & Matthew have sent me their wedding along with 150 of their favourite images from the day – and nope you didn’t read that wrong! While this may be slightly over the top I have to say it is indeed a rather fabulous wedding The couple had their ceremony at an old brick house under a huge tree with a few leaves missing where they hung bird cages to tie in their bird theme. They had their portraits at Princeton University and then headed to their reception at a Brewery and instead of the usual champagne reception, the couple served samples of local beer!

 

Sara’s dress was Selena by Maggie Sottero and her shoes by Irregular Choice, her Bridesmaids wore dresses by Niteline. The Bride embarked on a DIY frenzy making the ring bearer pillows, the table numbers, the aisle decor along with the tree and the flower centrepieces themselves – phew!

Rock Stars By Name Rock Stars By Nature

Alysha & Javi are one of those couples that just sound so rock n roll that I wouldn’t expect anything less then a wedding just like this one.What is so great though is that despite the rock n roll persona, this wedding still has so many gorgeous and super personal touches. The car that took them to their wedding was actually the car they had their first date in and all the flowers were based on the same arrangements the Bride’s Grandmother had at her wedding. 
The Bridesmaids look awesome in their sexy black jumpers and pencil skirt combo and the Bride looks seriously amazing..and her shoes..oh the shoes! They are by Betsey Johnson and are just gorgeous!

Thanks to photographer Shannon for sending me these.

I will catch you all tomorrow (or on Twitter later, I am crazy addicted!), have you entered the contest yet? There is always space for you!

Utterly Sweet Weddings

I have a couple of gorgeous sets from Sweet Monday Photography to share with you today, starting with the stunning, rustic wedding of Naama & Greg. What drew me to this wedding straight away was Naama’s beautifully simple and cute dress but what kept me going through all the photographs was all the gorgeous little details they put into their day.

The couple were married at Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles and Neema got her dress from Ebay, oh yes! It was a real family affair with all the flowers coming from her Mum’s garden and her sister Melissa makingall the stationary. The couple also put all the favours and table numbers together themselves. The result is a completely gorgeous DIY soiree!

Thanks to Lindsey of Sweet Monday Photography for sharing these with me!

I Actually Squealed With Excitement…

Ever since Tim & Merrill’s engagements, I have been waiting with bated breath for what feels like a lifetime for this wedding to happen and the photographs to be shared! Not only is Mark Brooke a photographer I simply adore, but the Groom is photographer Tim Melideo so I just knew the results would be nothing less than spectacular. I am quite frankly anything but disappointed! In fact I love these so much I could actually squeal.

Tim & Merrill have got some style that deserves some serious envy. The boys are rocking their same look different tie thing and the girls just look ridiculously gorgeous in their pink dress/bright flowers combo.

Oh sometimes it’s just all too damn exciting!

A Low-Key Party

Jess & Mike were really excited about having a really low-key party where their friends from all over and families could all be together and that’s exactly what they delivered.
 The wedding took place at the Valley Green Inn up in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, starting off with a quick outdoor ceremony officiated by Jess’  uncle. The couple chose not to have rings and opted for a very simplistic approach to their flowers, using little bundles of wild flowers for the bouquets. 
Jess made her own gorgeous red dress out of a vintage evening gown and also made all the decorations inside the restaurant which included tin can lanterns, string lights and a garland hung from the ceiling.  Jess and Mike weren’t too concerned with lots of family group shots, but more with photos of everyone hanging out and having a good time.  Colin Leaman came along to assist the main photographer Amanda and set up a little photo booth area for which Jess brought along tons of hats and wigs and other props for her guests to use in the funny photos.
As an added touch, the couple requested friends and family write down three songs that they would love to hear at the wedding on their invitation replies so that everybody got to hear something they liked at the reception.

What a gorgeous day, it is an honour to share it with you. Thanks so much to Amanda of Love Me Do Photography for sharing these with me.
