Sometimes a wedding comes along that is so damn fabulous that it’s worth the wait for. I was sent an image of the bride trying on her stunning Elizabeth Dye dress by a reader, boy must have been about 5 months ago, and since then I have made it my mission to find more about the wedding, the dress, the girl, the guy and the stunning photography – it’s all a bit too delightful for words huh?I am so excited to finally announce that I have the results right here! You are going to be completely gaga over these – I know I am!
Ali & Danny were married on the 6th June at Bend, Oregon. The ruffles, the flowers, the cute cute shoes and the gorgeous and unique wedding invitations by French Lil Designs…I just love it all. Who’s with me?

Bess & Matt…ahh what can I really say what would do justice to the images I see before me?
The couple wed at Ridley Creek State Park with an amazing outdoorsy, rustic style fest. Of course Bess’ tattoos and Matt’s ‘tache are what did it for me. Not to mention the dress by Megin Sherry, the check shirt (wow this Groom has some serious style) the casual garden flowers provided by Amanda Staples, the peacock earrings, the trilby hat and the cupcakes…oh yes Bess & Matt are just too stylish for me.
Thanks to Amanda & Carina for sending me this glorious wedding

After posting Jenn & Skip’s engagements back in May, I was convinced I would totally love their vintage vacation themed wedding – and I guess I was right. They went for a western/vintage vacation theme which was helped along by all their friends and family, not only dressing up for the day, but by helping the couple to DIY the lot!
Jenn made her own veil and fascinator, the invitations, her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the cake, the decorations and the signs. Skip made his own Groom’s cake – a bowling ball and pins – and helped Jenn wherever she needed it! Jenn’s sister and maid of honour made all the cute cupcakes and each Bridesmaid maid their own fascinators. The couple decided not to include anybody in their wedding that they didn’t know – so they had a friend perform the ceremony and other friends chip in with food, hair and make up.
I am obsessed with themed things, so naturally the wedding had to have a theme. Our overall theme was “vintage vacation”. From there we had mini-themes inside the big one. The brides cake and cupcakes were woodland (to go with the mountains). The suggested attire was western. The groomsmen and Dads wore western shirts. The bridesmaids wore headpieces and carried fans, saloon girl style. Both the bride and groom wore cowboy boots (which we already owned)… the groom also had spurs, the hat, the whole shebang! Our favors were vacation & western themed, as well as our decorations, popcorn & candy bar.
Insead of dancing, the wedding was rounded off with fun and games including eating doughnuts on a string, two photobooths, a candy and a popcorn bar.
Wow! Jenn & Skip I am blown away by your wedding. Thanks so much for sharing it!
