Boy am I one crazy blogger – got to bed at 3am last night and at 8.30 this morning I am raring to go again. Sleep? What’s that? Prepare for another day of wowing by the way…
Lets get going with this simple yet beautiful backyard wedding, given a little bit of a retro feel with Danielle’s stunning dress which was made by Siri and Wade’s suit which was from Banana Republic.
Photographer Carey, loved telling me about this wedding: When Danielle came out to the Beach Boy’s “God Only Knows’, you knew it was going to be a great night. It was out at Wade’s family farm (just outside of Regina, Saskatchewan), and was just a really relaxed fun day. There wasn’t too much of a theme, but the little pieces added gave it a really comfy feeling. The food was bbq’d, little homemade Canadian honey was given to the guests, there was music and dancing all night, fireworks, a firepit with smores and weiner roasting, and people camping to stay the night.
When this video landed in my inbox I knew from the first second of watching it that I’d feature it. Why? The Power Of Love baby! The hubby as I walked back up the aisle to this tune on our wedding day so not only did it bring all those lovely weddingyfeelings back for me, but it’s just a damn good song. We chose it for our own wedding as my favourite film of all time is Back to The Future, and I think Courtney & David’s wedding has this same feel of retro gorgeousness. Isn’t her dress just divine? be sure to watch the video to the end or the dramatic and surprising finale…what luck to catch that on film.
So you thought their Jess & Dana’s engagement’s were amazing right? Well check their wedding out. Ahhhh I am in love and lust all at the same time! The Groom’s crazy cool suit was made from a vintage pattern and the couple said they were going for “a mix-mash of styles with a vintage feel” which I have to say totally works. Why on Earth do you have to stick on one theme?! The Bride didn’t wear a wedding dress, she picked it up from her favourite shop in Australia.
A ridiculously huge thank you to photographer/videographer extraordinaire Hailey Bartholonew of You Can’t Be Serious. I am forever if your wedding debt!
I have another rock star couple to bring you today. Their engagement and wedding photographs are totally deserving of a post so going to share both. I’m starting off with their pin up styleee retro shoot, complete with planes and real life pilots!
Photographers Anna and Chris took some of these with real retro lens, manual focus 30mm, 1.4 Nikkor. Oooh…
I am truly honoured to be allowed to share these gorgeous images with you today. Gia Canali sent me these wonderful photographs of her parents as a tribute to her Father who has recently passed away.
Her parents clearly had some fabulous style on their wedding day (and the wedding day of Gia’s Uncle) and I am just so honoured to share these stunning photographs. Her Mum’s wedding dress and that gorgeous sundress were actually made by her Grandmother too (who took this photograph) how multi-talented!
From Gia… Those of you who know me well know that I buried my father last week, after he battled leukemia for almost three years. Now begins the harder project—reassembling my memories of him. All our photographs are suddenly worth more. This photograph of my parents on their wedding day hung in their bedroom when I was a child. I have always, always loved it.
So, here’s to you, Dad. I’m not sure how I’m going to get through photographing the father-daughter dance for the rest of my life … and I miss you so much
