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!

I am super duper excited about this wedding/wedding day shoot (as you can probably tell because I’ve featured about 40 photographs!) I saw this wedding on one of my favourite non-wedding blogs Rockstar Diaries. The enviable gorgeous girl behind the site also produces her own hairpieces which is how I first got a glimpse of the gorgeousness. I immediately emailed the photographer and couple begging to be able to share their god damn crazy awesome wedding.
Thank you to Cristi Dame, Naomi of Rockstar Diaries and the couple Amy & Matt for sharing this kick ass skater chick wedding!
