Rose Tinted

Jenn & Ron had a gorgeous wedding, perfectly captured by Darbi G and her second shooter Erika Jackson. The photography even gives the day a rose-tinted glow. The resulting images truly appear to reflect the over-all feel and emotions of the day don’t you think? I can totally imagine being at this beautiful, soft, rose-tinted wedding!
Also can you believe Jenn actually made her amazing 2-piece dress (including corset) herself?! Erm..wow.
The henna on her hands doesn’t at all look out of place in among the personal touches and details of this wedding.  Everything feels tranquil, soft, homely and personal. I am smitten!

Fo’ Real

I was never a huge fan of the whole fake moustache at weddings thing that was really popular last year. I think mainly because I just didn’t ‘get’ it? I didn’t (and still don’t) understand what the actual point of it was.
However when it comes to real life moustaches, well that is a completely different matter entirely.  This dude has got one seriously awesome ‘tache going on..coiffed to perfection wouldn’t you say?
Plus his Bride has got some pretty damn cool tattoos so, well, there was no way in hell I wasn’t going to share these was there?

The photographer, Katherine, describes this truly rock n roll wedding:
This couple had the most awesome wedding at Kali Kate in Buda. You’ve seen all the fake mustache weddings where everyone wore a fake mustache -well this groom grew the real thing- which he waxed and combed perfectly.!

Kristin has the best vintage kitchen for shooting still lifes. She’s also a great gardener , so of course she did all her own flowers- from the table arrangements to her beautifully simple bouquet of peony tulips.

She had all of her bridesmaids wore vintage inspired red polka dotted 40’s dresses. And she had a flower fairy instead of a flower girl!

But the best part was the music, a dj spinning real vinyl where he played a song that her Father sang as a opera singer- a surprise for their Father -Daughter dance and the last song was the cool old Pink Floyd song “Fearless”.

Reel Good

Super 8 video is a format that has always intrigued me.  It’s beauty and rawness gives me the same tingle of excitement as Polaroid. However the sad thing is that  it seems like this beautiful art form that is, like Polaroid, slowly dying out.  But rejoice! London based company Reel 60 are taking steps towards changing that.  Their super 8 short films are touching, inspirational and retro in it’s purest form.
OK, maybe I’m guilty of rambling a bit here, but I am just a little bit over-excited to share a couple of their videos with you.  Maybe a lot of you won’t have seen any Super 8 movies before…and you really should you know!

First up a short and sweet little promo video…

Love Me Do

This beautiful, almost peaceful New York wedding was send to me by the photographer Amanda of Love Me Do Photography.  The wedding took place in Central Park and the reception was held at a hip French Bistro in Midtown. What’s great about this wedding (quite apart from how stunning it is) is that the couple, Jen & Hooper pretty much DIY’ed the whole thing themselves. I think the only thing they didn’t make themselves was the cake and the dress!

The Bride, Jen is a fabulous blogger, painter and photographer herself, so she definitely started off of the right foot wedding planning wise! (Amanda even took some of Jen’s art as payment for photographing the wedding – how awesome is that!?)
Jen and Hooper designed the invitations/save the date (which you can see on Jen’s blog), the centerpieces and flowers (including the bouquets and those wicked masks), the guest book and the cute little Jen and Hooper paper dolls at each place setting. 
Jen’s dress was a silk chiffon evening gown from Bergdorf, her bolero was by Kate Towers and her gloves were by Carolina Amato

Enjoy these..and I’m pretty sure I don’t even have to mention how much I adore Jen’s bird tattoos…<swoooon!>

Temple Ready

Jenna aka That Bride/That Wife/Jenna Cole Photography coined that phrase when I posted some beautiful long-sleeve wedding dress inspiration a while ago, so now every time I see a long sleeve dress lovely I always feel the need to share them!
I have been lucky enough to chat with the genius behind the lens of these images Evelyn Eslava who in turn chatted to the Bride to get you all the info you could want – Ta Daaaaa…

Where did the wedding took place? Manti Utah LDS temple
Where the dress was from? My Grandma wore it when she got married over 50 years ago, when she passed away I really wanted it and she knew it and knew that I would wear it so it was passed on to me. It fit like a glove we didn’t even have to resize  it. It made me feel like she was there with me
How did you make your wedding special/unique/rock n roll?!  It poured rain. This made it special because during our summer engagement my husband was working long hours at a landscaping job and the only way he would get out of it was when it was raining every night we would say pray for rain so we could spend time together. Then when he proposed he wrote a song and one line said “pray for one more day of rain.” and it says it on the inside of his wedding band, well needless to say we got what we asked for on our wedding day, rain.
Would they have done anything differently? Not a thing. We didn’t had a reception and it really took a lot of stress off of not only me but our parents as well
Did you have a favorite wedding day moment? The actual ceremony was so special how could it not be when were finally married for time and all eternity?

Cute…Thanks Evelyn!
