It’s my utter pleasure to introduce you to Unique Vintage today. Not only do they have a great selection of both authentic vintage and vintage inspired wedding dresses but they have something to suit every budget! Some of my favourites include the little white reception dresses (from $68), the tea length 50’s inspired wedding dresses (from $130) and of course the more sophisticated Audrey Hepburn style dressses (which range from $500 to $1200.)
Amy & Nick’s wonderful South Austin wedding had a distinct and very individual theme – perfect for them! Big fans of Buddy Holly and late 50’s/early 60’s music, it was important to them to really have that as a big part of their wedding. Amy walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of Every Day played live by a friend on the guitar. Nick waited to marry his sweetheart decked out in a grey suit, Buddy Holly glasses and his favorite pair of Converse. Amy wore a dress by Dolly Couture which was perfectly accented by a Magnolia flower created by Amy Barber of Sweettooth Bags.
Meredith & Eric’s wedding was based around their all time favourite band – Gun n Roses baby! Meredith wore a dress designed by the same designer behind the wedding dress in the November Rain video. It is imperative they you listen to this song as you view these fabulous images (and excuse me, but did anyone else forget how awesome this song is…and don’t even get me started on the hair – I love it!)
To top it all off, the couple actually got their wedding for free…yes free! Check out the full story from the News 9 news report and the full list of vendors who donated their services for nothing on photographer Brandi’s blog.
Lizz & Will tied the knot at Houston Mill House in Atlanta, GA. The wedding had a great floral, spring-like feel but with touches of punk rock throughout – just the way I like it! Lizz found her dress at Bridals by Elena in Glen Burnie MD. isn’t it beautiful? Lizz told me
“I had done some dress shopping for about a month, and nothing seemed to STAND OUT. Until I walked into Elena’s. I had about 4 dresses I wanted to try on and was on my way to the fitting room when I saw my dress on a Mannequin. I instantly knew that was my dress. It was the first one I tried on and it was the last. Later that day I found the perfect shoes I was looking for, and when Elena saw them she thought it would be a spunky idea to die them the color of the purple sash on my dress. I was a great experience, and Elena and her daughter are amazing seamstresses”
This darling wedding day shoot makes me all happy and smiley (even through my hangover gah!) Russian photographer Nelly Suleymanova has a real knack for capturing her clients at their most beautiful…and hello, white lace tights? – Yeah amazing!

It’s my favourite time of the week again and I’m always ready for a little treat aren’t you? To stay with, I had to share yet another image by Kirsty Mitchell at the top of this post (she’s got the top spot for a second week running now) as this simply is my favourite image I’ve seen all week. She sent it over to me a few days ago and it’s well…just too damn wonderful for words isn’t it?! In fact all her photography is really – simply breathtaking…Thanks Kirsty!
