Pin Up Vixen

It’s nice to break away from all the weddingness sometimes and just spend some time enjoying some non wedding inspiration and Taylor’s senior portraits fall smack bang into this category. I’m sure it’s pretty obvious why I love these – the colours, the contrast and her gorgeous retro rockabilly style – she has got that pin up thing down to a tee with her fluttering eyelashes and her matt, crimson lips. Can you believe this gal is only 18!?

ps I ♥  that egg chair a little too much!

Retro Italy Wedding

I’m well aware it’s very unlike me to blog so little on a Monday but I have been a bit of a busy bee today. Please forgive me and fret not because Janel & Jim’s ‘retro italian’ wedding is here y’all! (I don’t know where that ‘y’all’ came from either)

The couple continued to rock their awesome kitch/rockabilly style whist still managing to pull of a pretty damn elegant wedding. The dog was of course there being his cutie-pie self and the styling was second to none. From the vintage vespas (again) to the retro suitcase, from the kinky killer heels to the merrygoround – this wedding is one of pure rock n roll class.

Retro Italy Engagements

Janel & Jim are one of those couple’s the completely ooze cool. Their retro style – vespas, rockabilly hair, vans, pin up shoes and a teeny tiny dog – played huge part in their engagament session. Stay tuned for their gorgeous ‘retro Italian’ themed wedding next!

Offbeat Bride

Ron & Tessa got married at The Uptown Theater in Kansas City and I am crazy about their gorgeous offbeat wedding! The room they tied the knot in was called The Cabaret Room which dates back to the 1920’s but is now used to host rock concerts. This pretty much perfectly reflected their vintage, rock n roll day!

Tessa found a taffeta-free alternative vintage style dress by Allure Bridal and Ron wore a bowler hat and spectator shoes along with a vest and pocket watch, all of which added to their theme. The couple decided an over floral wedding was not for them and instead chose to incorporate feathers wherever they could. Although Tessa chose to take a walk down their beaten aisle carrying a traditional bouquet and Ron wore a boutonniere, they completely skipped the floral centrepieces, opting instead for a vast array of gorgeous ostrich plumes in teal and black to match their colour scheme. Tessa also wore a gorgeous feather hairpiece which she bought from Etsy seller YJdesign, and finally one of my favourite touches, the feather theme was rounded off by the cute bird cake topper made by Etsy seller cornflakegirl.

Thanks to Tessa & Ron for sharing their gorgeous day with us!

God Only Knows What I’d Be Without You

“Good morning, starshine… the earth says hello!”

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.

Thanks to Carey for sharing the love…

The Power Of Love

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.

Thanks to Katherine of  Eagle Eye Photography for sharing.
