I’m sure you remember Heather & Lucus’ fabulous vintage pin up stylee engagements? Well even if you don’t I know you’re going to love their wedding photographs! I am so honoured that Heather has send me these straight away and I am so excited to share these with you.
Heather describes their day:
The ceremony and reception was held at Squatters Brewery here in Salt Lake. We had a short, 6 minute ceremony that was funny and fit our personalities well. Our Australian friend got ordained and married us. My Dad wore a flamed hot rod tie to walk me down the isle in. I illustrated the two of us for a custom shot glass that was given to anyone that ordered a shot. We had an elaborate retro dessert table with my homemade cupcakes. (I am a self-proclaimed obsessed baker)
There was a retro photobooth for everyone to use, swing dancing, a themed ‘wedding cake’ shot that tasted like vanilla cake, and a cupcake tower. We also had our artist friends do illustrations of us, and framed them for display in the entry area. (I’ve included my favorite one in the folder) – By JJ Harrison of www.bampop.com
My dress was a Pronovias gown that I bought on ebay for $300. Then I had it trimmed shorter, and had a jacket made to match it, by a girl on Etsy.com.
Thanks Heather, I am in love with your wedding!

I am hoping to feature a few of Michele Waite’s weddings in the not to distant future, starting with this one. I asked the Bride Danielle if she could help me with some details about their day and boy, what a response..this will make you happy!
I had my dress made – Chrissy Wai-Ching made it. She is a custom clothing designer and maker in Seattle – and was kind enough to allow me to collaborate with her on the design. (I am an architect, by training, and life-long hobby-seamstress) So she kindly tolerated my need to participate, but, is extremely talented all by herself.
My sister was my ‘bridesmaid’ – (also had dress made by Chrissy) and mostly helped me get through it all – But, wasn’t a traditional bridemaid… Those duties were shared amongst my friends and her.
Our wedding was special because we decided to buy a house for it. (HA) Literally, we spent months trying to decide where to have it… all around the Puget Sound region. But, ultimately decided the most important thing was the ‘place,’ the most symbolic part was that we wanted to cement our partnership on our own land, our own terms. Deepen our commitment through the experimentation of building a home together and ‘christen’ that place with the celebration of our marriage. (we are both architects) So, the house became our focal point for months after we closed. The date was set 6 months after we got the keys – and we worked our tails off with tons of help from our family and friends.
Eventually it evolved from being about us and our land, house and experimenting to the tremendous community effort to prepare for the event. We had a constant stream of visitors ready to jackhammer, cut boards, roll sod, install railings, build decks, tents and paint decorations. It was a machine of enginuity and REALLY fun.
What makes me a rocknroll bride? I don’t really know the answer to that. I did it my own way? I threw away the guide books and said there is something more than this? We made virtually every piece? We chose local artists and craftspeople to help us? Our caterer is an eccentric italian who happens to make the best food many of us had ever eaten at a wedding? We danced to good ole R and B hits on top of the tattoo heart with swallows saying LOVE, painted on to our deck? I didn’t have to put myself on a diet because I was too busy building my ass off for 6 months?
Hurrah to that I say!

Sarah Sloboda is a fabulously ‘rock n roll style’ photographer from NYC who I have had the pleasure of featuring before. So when she send me this newest wedding of hers I quite frankly jumped at the chance of getting them up here. Again with the sweet, simple and perfectly personal weddings!

It’s no secret that I am totally biased when it comes to my friend David’s photography. I am totally loving his newest engagement shoot, and in fact even more so because the couple discovered David and his brilliance through Rock n Roll Bride! I should defiantly be taking some sort of commission for such amazing photographs, don’t you think?!

Hey Hey…I am back, did you miss meeeee?! We had a fabulous (and very fancy) time in Brighton this weekend, our hotel was ridiculously posh and we got it all for free (including two 3 course dinners which totaled more than we would spend on food shopping in a month!) I am surprised they even let us in with my pink mop and Gareth’s j-rock do…
Thought I’d come back with a bang and share this fantastic wedding I have been dying to get out there as soon as I found a few of the images on flickr…I was forced to wait however as the photographer, Phaedra had not yet finished editing them all. I’m glad I did though because now they are even better than when I first saw them. This rockabilly style just makes me swoon…and it’s all PINK!
What is also brilliant about this wedding is that almost everything was handmade by local (Californian) artists, Phaedra was kind enough to share some of these with me…
A few details about the wedding- the theme was 1940′s Rockabilly, and just about everything was handmade custom by local artists. The ladies’ attire was made by Debbie Carper (209-656-9334) from Denair, California. The tuxes and men’s shoes were by MX Tux in Merced (209-722-3388). The cakes were custom designed and made by Christy Lobao of Hilmar, California. (209-233-1991). The flowers were made by the Pitman High Agricultural Department (209-602-1146). I made playbill style wedding programs for them.. and my team photographed the wedding (www.phaedraphotography.com) The hair and make-up was done by Amber Tucker (209-324-3239) I’ve seen Amber’s work a few times now and I’m switching hairdressers! The woman can pull off anything!
