Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920’s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
“It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it. It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history. It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”
This British groom and his Texan bride may have met at a Chicago Cubs game but flew back to Texas to get married. Both parties brought some of themselves into their day – most notably in the cakes! Matt must certainly be a football (soccer) fan. I loving Holly’s Justina McCaffrey dress from Belle Vie Bridal Couture in downtown Chicago, the Rock n Roll graffiti portraits (’til death do us part’ how perfect is that!?) and the masquerade ball-esque masks.
Veronica sure is one sexy lady – from sweet and innocent to full on vamp, don’t you love how these images paint two completely different pictures of her? Seriously gorgeous with an awesome rock and roll edge. perfection!
A bride in a black dress, fluevog shoes and black birdcage veil. A groom wearing aviators, a tribly hat and a belt with skulls on it. I think you’ll agree that Sean & Chantal are Rock n Roll through and through!
Chad & Erin of Fuller Edge always choose the most awesome locations for their shoots. With Angel & Craig, who rocked their wedding with skull cufflinks, converse trainers, a pink wedding dress and adorable pink and green details (clicky here for the full set), Chad & Erin took them to a junkyard for these fab shots. I am loving the use of water and the texture in every single image. Wonderful!
Thanks to Chad & Erin for sending these to me. I always adore their work!

Do you remember Jen & Grant’s McEngagements? Well the couple went and got married and there was no Mcdonalds in sight.
Jen & Grant cleverly integrated the color blue as a tribute to grant’s favorite team duke as well as tying in a playstation theme (see cufflinks below), and left plenty of room for her obsession with skulls. the hampshire house wedding venue was transformed for jen and grant’s dream wedding. for the ceremony, grant’s best man served as the officiant by becoming a JP for a day, by getting his one-day marriage designation in the state of massachusetts. they had one of the coolest sets of bridesmaids and groomsmen i’ve worked with. after the ceremony, the newlyweds allocated a bit of extra time beyond traditional formal photographs to allow for some creative portraits walking around downtown boston in the boston public garden and an MBTA subway station. at the reception, DJ addam bomb provided music that had everyone on the dancefloor, including jen’s 86 year old grandfather rocking out to billy idol’s “white wedding.” if you are having a boston wedding and are looking for a DJ that can throw down great alternative music, yet still has a tasteful demeanor, this is your guy.
Thanks to photographer, Heather Parker for sharing this cool blue wedding!
