Lauren & Chris had their gorgeous, heavily DIY wedding at The Maritime Hotel in NYC’s meatpacking district. The neighborhood was perfect for the
edgy and non-traditional wedding and photographs that they wanted.
The bride’s Mother made all the table decorations to fit their theme which encompased all the cities Chris & Lauren and traveled to together. All the flowers (including the bride’s bouquet) were purchased at the Union Square farmers market the day of and assembled on site by friends before the ceremony.
Kim & Alex’s wedding hit me like a steam train of epicness when I laid eyes on it. I’m pretty sure my incessant ramblings can’t bring it justice so I think it’s only fair I hand over to Kim with all the fantastic details. As usual, I’ll be back with the eye candy.
“Originally our theme was “Halloween Town” from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but as time went on, our theme evolved beyond Tim Burton to include other geeky things we love as a couple such as zombies, toys, film and… well… Halloween!
We were mostly inspired by films (predominantly Tim Burton and Zombie flicks) and our own Halloween experiences. We just looked at the little things we loved most and used that to make our wedding our own.”
I’ve got yet another wedding I’ve been waiting with baited breath to share with you as a matter of urgency. Lori & Jason’s funky, punky, trailer part love affair wedding makes me squeal with excitement (especially when I saw the images of the couple getting inked together – hello, so awesome!)
It’s official. I am actually starting to finally believe that the UK is catching up to America in the style stakes. When this wedding winged it’s way to me from the West Midlands (that’s a bit up north for my American readers!) I knew straight away that sharing it would make me a very happy blogger indeed.
I featured Mary’s killer bridal session earlier this year – the aviators, gun and cigar really did it for me - so as always I’ve been eagerly awaiting for her wedding to Opie and I’m certainly not disappointed. I’m so excited that photographer Jenna wanted to share these with us:
On her big day Mary not only rocked finger waves (vintage chic oh lala), a consignment shop wedding dress, a DIY wheat bouquet and red heels, but she and her beloved, Opie, had a wedding pie instead of wedding cake, saw each other before the ceremony (yay!), gave homemade truffles to their guests (and their photographer as well, which doubles their coolness factor in my book), and served hamburgers as their wedding dinner.
The UK is seriously on fire this week and I’ve got another fantastic British wedding so share with you. However this one is extra extra special as Sally & Peter actually found their photographer, Kate, through Rock n Roll Bride! Woo to the Hoo!
Kate talked all about Sally & Peter and their wonderfully eclectic day on her own blog:
Sally and Peter have been together for about 18 months and about 6 months ago, during a game of scrabble, Peter proposed! While Sally was out of the room Peter stole several of the letters and when the time was right spelt out the words ‘marry me’. This explains Sally’s choice of earrings on the wedding day – The S&P are from the actual set they played.
