I got sent a great photo session and a sweet sweet story from photographer Heather Kincaid yesterday and I just had to share.
About a month ago I received an email from Amanda asking if I was available “for a photo shoot the last week of July.” Kind of a cryptic email… Having already shot their engagement session last year, I knew it wasn’t for that. So I had no clue what she was talking about. In a second email she revealed that she and Viet were planning to get married at the courthouse– just the two of them — and wanted me to come along to document their very intimate wedding day. I was so surprised! They made the decision that after eight years of being together, they didn’t want to wait any longer to be husband and wife and decided that on July 27th, their eight-year anniversary, they would make it official. It would be just the two of them making their commitment and celebrating their love for one another.

Katie & Tim’s rustic railroad wedding is totally adorable and you are going to love these. I am crazy about Katie’s red tipped, polka-dotty cute tea dress (by Stephanie James Couture), their colour coordinated cupcakes and her faux flower and red feather bouquet (also made by Stephanie James Couture.) Swoooooonworthy indeed

Hurrah! Part two of Caroline Ghetes’ amazing vintage inspired bridal sessions is live! This second installment has a much more modern twist to it as Caroline wanted to show how vintage fashion can work in super modern, urban suroundings. She scoured Etsy for the majority of the gorgeous pieces to go in this shoot. The ever so popular 50′s style tea dress was from ghmarketplace, the sparkly tulle veil was handmade with vintage material from the 1940′s by Liaison, the pink and the peacock hairpieces were by Chamberry Cherry and finally the dramatic bouquet was actually made by Caroline herself.
(Just in case you missed it, Part one is here)
Vendors involved in the shoot included:
Baroque And Roll
Thanks again to Caroline for sharing these with us. I am waiting with baited breath for the third and final installment!

I was lucky enough to meet both Eliza (the photographer) and Ly(the model) who sent me this trash the dress session to me a while back on a now rather infamously drunk night out in London! I can safely say the fun and frolics you see below perfectly reflect their slightly mischievous personalities.

You would be forgiven for thinking that backyard weddings are always small, budget affairs? Well not when the Bride’s parents own Portefleur estate! This surely made for a super swanky venue and wedding. Aaron proposed to Lauren with a song he wrote for her and even treated the guests to it at the reception..ahh love.
Thanks to Mathieu for sharing these with me

I’ve done that thing again where I get sent a wedding so damn awesome that I end up posting a million pictures…I hope you don’t mind! I think you’ll understand my overwhelming excitement when you see these and learn that photographer Jeremy Lawson has given Rock n Roll Bride the exclusive blogging/bragging rights to this awesomeness.
Christine & Dan’s ceremony took place at their favourite floral boutique, Asrai Garden, in Chicago. They wanted the setting to not only be gorgeous, but to be super sumptuous yet unpretentious place for to say their vows. The fragrant blooms, the pastries and the smell of fresh coffee throughout really did make the space feel like home.
Their reception was held at The Violet Hour, also in Chicago, where they served personalised cocktails to their guests including one called ‘Romeo & Juliet’ that was made of Beefeater gin, mint, cucumber and rose water. The florist (who of course also owned the ceremony space!) filled the reception with vessels and apothecary jars for ferns and succulents, wooden pedestals for food and loads of gorgeous garden flowers. The couple chose not to have a traditional wedding cake, opting instead for loads of pastries including fresh fruit tarts, meringue and gold leaf cupcakes and bacon chocolate chip cookies all from Hot Chocolate Restaurant.
Christine’s awesome dress was a 1950′s vintage gown from Elizabeth Avey in London (wooo) and Dan accompanied his Rag & Bone suit (New York) with a bow tie from the 1930′s and wingtip shoes from Church’s in England.
Thanks to much for sharing your story you guys, and Jeremy Lawson - I will actually love you forever!
