Fashion Envy

I am jealous, elated and over-excited all at the same time after discovering Piksi’s flickr stream. Have you ever seen a girl with such an amazingly polished style? The 60’s vibe is perfect for her cute pixie look, I would go crazy if I was to find a wedding in the same style. Imagine Bridesmaids in some outfits like these…<<squeal!>>

Some of my fashion highlights of her gorgeous clothes (that I want to steal) include – her adorable heart bag from Minna Parikka, the cream, ruffle-topped dress byIVANAhelsinki and the swing, pleated grey coat from H&M…man, my wardrobe is so dull!

A Low-Key Party

Jess & Mike were really excited about having a really low-key party where their friends from all over and families could all be together and that’s exactly what they delivered.
 The wedding took place at the Valley Green Inn up in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, starting off with a quick outdoor ceremony officiated by Jess’  uncle. The couple chose not to have rings and opted for a very simplistic approach to their flowers, using little bundles of wild flowers for the bouquets. 
Jess made her own gorgeous red dress out of a vintage evening gown and also made all the decorations inside the restaurant which included tin can lanterns, string lights and a garland hung from the ceiling.  Jess and Mike weren’t too concerned with lots of family group shots, but more with photos of everyone hanging out and having a good time.  Colin Leaman came along to assist the main photographer Amanda and set up a little photo booth area for which Jess brought along tons of hats and wigs and other props for her guests to use in the funny photos.
As an added touch, the couple requested friends and family write down three songs that they would love to hear at the wedding on their invitation replies so that everybody got to hear something they liked at the reception.

What a gorgeous day, it is an honour to share it with you. Thanks so much to Amanda of Love Me Do Photography for sharing these with me.

Perfectly Personal

Melissa and Nate had a perfectly personal wedding last May in Logan, Utah. Melissa’s wore a vintage dress, and Nate’s suit was pinstriped and fitted.  They had one of their favourite bands, Mates of State, playing throughout their reception and the whole day had a homely, indie, persoanal feel.  The couple DIY’d a-plenty including the framed bride and groom silhouettes that Melissa made and the cake, which was made by the groom’s sister.
