Utterly Sweet Weddings

I have a couple of gorgeous sets from Sweet Monday Photography to share with you today, starting with the stunning, rustic wedding of Naama & Greg. What drew me to this wedding straight away was Naama’s beautifully simple and cute dress but what kept me going through all the photographs was all the gorgeous little details they put into their day.

The couple were married at Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles and Neema got her dress from Ebay, oh yes! It was a real family affair with all the flowers coming from her Mum’s garden and her sister Melissa makingall the stationary. The couple also put all the favours and table numbers together themselves. The result is a completely gorgeous DIY soiree!

Thanks to Lindsey of Sweet Monday Photography for sharing these with me!

Perfectly Personal

Melissa and Nate had a perfectly personal wedding last May in Logan, Utah. Melissa’s wore a vintage dress, and Nate’s suit was pinstriped and fitted.  They had one of their favourite bands, Mates of State, playing throughout their reception and the whole day had a homely, indie, persoanal feel.  The couple DIY’d a-plenty including the framed bride and groom silhouettes that Melissa made and the cake, which was made by the groom’s sister.

Old School Charm

Some may say I blog too much…and I know I do, but come on I have to share stuff like this! The tattoos, the veil, the cute dress, the old school style…love love love

From photographer Katherine:
Naomi and Ian were married at The Old School on East 11th street, it’s a historical home owned by the documentary photographer Alan Pogue and his wife. It’s an incredible house with a porch and tall ceilings and filled with Alan’s powerfully beautiful black and white photographs.
The groom and his friends set up the stage for the ceremony then got ready at Verde Camp.

Though it was a stormy day, the rain stopped in time for the ceremony and held off for a beautiful outdoor dinner and dancing to Ian and his friends music.

A huge thank you to Katherine O’Brien for sharing these with me..I am in LOVE!

Flowers, Dresses & Vintage Processing

Claire & Jeff’s wedding probably had one of the most amazing floral displays ever! Not because it was necessarily the biggest or the grandest but just because it was so diverse, unique and gorgeous. The flowers were designed and created by San Fran florists Ixia Fine Flowers. Claire also had a gorgeous one of a kind dress, made specifically for her which looks wonderful in their awesome portraits – the vintage and Polaroid processing is just stunning!

I asked Gia what she loved about this wedding and it would appear she had similar ideas to me…

The venue was fairly funky.  So I chose to do their portraits in a setting that was organically funky to complement the architectural funkiness of the ceremony and reception location. 

The florals were really unusual.  I heart succulents and fiddle heads! And what’s not to love about succulents and fiddle heads with orchids and (what appear to be some sort of) ginger flowers?!  I can find out for sure what those were. 

My favorite thing about Claire and Jeff’s wedding was that everybody there — bride, groom, ringbearer, flower girl, family, or guest — was funky and fun.  I think they planned a wonderful party that everybody could enjoy.  They did some of the traditional things — like having a first dance — but did other things because they had great personal value or were just plain fun.  They served jambalaya and mac ‘n cheese for dinner, creme brulee for dessert.  Claire commissioned a groom’s cake for Jeff that said “Guinness is good for you!” on it.

Thanks so much Gia, it’s been great sharing your work!

A Perfect Ensemble

I am sharing this wedding for one main reason – Sara’s dress…don’t you just love it? It was based on her Grandmother’s gown and was designed and made for her by Dame Couture. I don’t think she could be wearing a more perfect for her ensemble…the dressm the veil, the glasses, trhe shoes – it all suits her so much!

Thanks for the share Olivia!
