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!

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!

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!

Melissa & Adam, two self-proclaimed bookworms (check out that cake!) had a fabulously bright, fun wedding. The details are just wonderful – their shoes, the daisy pomander bouquet, the paper pom poms, the sweet n simple table layout…oh and I am crazy about those ring shots! So original and so colourful!
Thanks Rob – you rock!

When I asked Taiwanese photographer Long Sir if I could feature some of his work, little did I know how difficult it would be to choose a set to share…so I’m bringing out a selection – starting with the ethereal fashion shoot.

Just in case you didn’t get the memo – bright yellow is most definitely in this year and Junita and Jared’s wedding has got to be my most favourite sunshine wedding I’ve seen recently. The Bride even wore yellow – how rad is that?
For more sunny weddings be sure to also check out this incredible wedding (also shot by Mark Brooke), this citrus gem photographed by Our Labor Of Love and blogged on Style Me Pretty, and this ridiculously amazing floral display, also photographed by Our Labor Of Love and blogged on Style Me Pretty …I mean flowers hanging upside down from the ceiling for crying out loud!
