A Birthday Treat – From Me To You!

I shouldn’t really be all bloggy on my birthday but I just love you all too much…and I love this wedding too much to wait until tomorrow..I have to get it out there right now!

I found this wedding via Offbeat Bride’s Flickr pool (it’s an amazing resource for finding wicked weddings, but I’m assuming most of you already know that!)  Anyway, as soon as I saw this wedding I emailed the Bride, Kelly straight away demanding to be allowed to feature it on here…and she was more than happy for me too…wooohooo!

I’m going to hand right over to Kelly at this point, because in her own words she loves talking about her wedding!
We started planning a very traditional wedding but it never seemed
“right” for us.  So my man gave me full control and said “make it feel
like us”.  I changed the location to New York City (that’s were we
live) and decided the day would be family only.  (Later, we had a
party for friends in New York and both our hometowns)

The day started by taking a black limo to Brooklyn Bridge, to take
pictures.  After that, we headed to the court house, downtown
Manhattan to have the civil ceremony.  Another black limo took all of
the guests to meet us at the court house.  We got married about 1:00
pm on Friday, March 20 in a very short little ceremony.  Then we all
headed to Alice’s Tea Cup on 64th where we had rented a room upstairs.
 It was so darling!!  We had different types of finger sandwiches,
crazy scones, tons of little deserts and unlimited tea.  Our cake was
a one-layered yellow cake with buttercream frosting and the grooms
“cake” was really a red velvet cupcake (his favorite).  My cake topper
was a vintage 1950’s wedding couple.  My favors were vintage tea cups
with little gold bags of loose tea (Wedding Chai) wrapped in pink
tulle and ivory ribbons.  By 7:00 pm, my new husband and I were at the
airport to leave on our honeymoon.  It was a perfect day!

A highlight:  When we stood in front of the court house, right after
the ceremony to take pictures, a NYPD traffic cop took our picture
with her cell phone.  Then she looked at it, smiled and said it was
the best wedding she had ever seen!

Now here is good stuff:

Bride:  Dress, Betsey Johnson
Headpiece, veil, earrings: ReVamp

Shoes and purse: Prada
Make up:  All MAC Cosmetics.  (Lip color:  Alta Moda and All Nighter
Prolong Wear by MAC–I get asked that a lot)

Maid of Honor:  Dress, Betsey Johnson
Hat, bracelets, earrings:  ReVamp

Shoes: Christian Dior
Make up: All MAC Cosmetics.  (Lip color: Melrose Mood)

Groom:  Suit, Tie: Gucci
Cufflinks: Vintage

Ring:  Heirloom (Great grandfathers’ ring)

Reception, cake and favors:  Alice’s Tea Cup 

Flowers: ReVamp

Thank you for letting me share this with you!  I am very excited that
people liked what I did, because I was getting a bit of flack from
some friends about not being “traditional”.  I only did and wore what
I loved; that is what made my wedding authentic.  I would hope to
inspire other brides to ignore the critics and go with their own sense
of style.

Thanks so much for sharing Kelly.  You all simply must head over here to check out the rest of her ridiculously gorgeous wedding! (and here for her Vintage, Remade, Re-inspired and Occasionally Sparkly etsy shop!)

I am sure we all remember this gorgeous couple’s engagements and Disney themed (but totally rock n roll!) wedding. We all loved her tattoos and the amazing photographs right?  Well the very lovely Michelle of Oeil Photography knew how much we all adored them and so send me Tina’s bridal shoot as well….wooooohoooooo!

I can not even begin to put into words how much I love these shots – the location, the sexy poses, the Snow White-esque image! Just aaaamazin’!

Thank you thank you thank you Michelle! I am forever in your rock n roll debt!

Encarnacion

I am super excited to be the first ever wedding blog to feature the work of Encarnacion Photography!  Joannathan (i.e. Joanne & Jonathan) a husband and wife team, sent me this wedding, knowing full well I wouldn’t be able to restrain myself (in a purely blogging fashion you understand!)

A Groom in vans – rockin’ it with his boys,  a Bride with awesome tattoos and a wedding that looks liked such fun it makes me wish I was there – how could I possibly resist!?
I am also a little bit in love with the Bridesmaid dresses from Bay Area Bridal.

Thanks so much for sending these my way Joannathan – I look forward to seeing much more of your stuff!
