Chameleon Bride!

I am loving this chameleon-esque Bride!  This cutie couple were lucky enough to get an array of talented photographers to take photographs of them!  I really wanted to share both their bridal shoot, taken by Brian Bastinelli (the photos with the red hair) and their fabulous wedding photographs, taken by the genius that is John Michael Cooper with you right now.

Staysi sent me a fantastic description of their day..hey, she sounds just like me!
Our wedding and ceremony were located at the Las Vegas Art Museum.  my black and white dress is Watters and the short white dress is Betsey Johnson. Dave is wearing Armani with custom chuck taylors with our wedding date embroidered on them.  I think our wedding was rock n roll because we didn’t try to be anything we weren’t.  Dave wanted to wear chucks, I wanted pink hair, and I did not want a white dress!  Growing up in Vegas and going to a million weddings, I knew I did not want the typical Vegas wedding at a casino banquet hall  where you could take a picture and basically change out the heads on the bride and groom and you wouldn’t know whos wedding it was.  I wanted a wedding that no one else has ever seen or been to.  We also skipped a lot of the traditional wedding things that didn’t mean anything to us and added things we thought our guests would love.  Basically we just wanted a big party, and from what everyone still says about it, we succeeded.

As always, I am loving all my wonderful readers right now, thanks so much for sending these my way Staysi!

Be Inspired III

I have loved hanging out with Emily of Peach & Pearl this week..a huge thank you for all her hard work putting together some fantastico inspiration boards just for us. I hope you have all loved them too!
So for the last time (this week) over to Emily…

For my last board, I imagined an intimate, sit-down dinner with your closest family and friends that could be held just as easily in a loved one’s backyard or the patio of your favourite restaurant.  While not as rock and roll as some celebrations I could have put together, I think this board really reflects what I feel is the heart of Rock ‘n Roll Bride – not bowing to wedding convention, but truly having the wedding that best reflects you as a pair and your relationship.  Keep things simple and handmade with potted herb favours, a hosta and lady slipper bouquet, breadstick and olive oil centrepieces, pigs in a blanket at the cocktail hour, and a short, sassy dress for the bride.

A Predictable Post?

So, you know about Bridal Soup now yeah?  Well the one of the guys behind it, Steve Gerrard is actually a fabulous photographer based in Birmingham, UK.  Being as I was to be a regular contributor to his new venture I figured I should check out his work as well, and boy am I glad I did..look at this amazin’ NY wedding.

When I emailed Steve to let him know I was going to feature one of his weddings he actually replied saying “Let me guess – the New York wedding!” am I that predicable!!?  Well for a well like this I am happy to be predictable!

I love flippin’ loads about this wedding – the dress, the glasses, the Groom Style (+ the long hair – I am all about men with long hair after Gareth grew his!) and the locations of the portraits to name but a few.
