Alyssa & Danny are so sweet they make my teeth hurt. Actually strike that – Alyssa, Danny and Alyssa’s fluffy bunny rabbit are so sweet they make my teeth hurt! Oh yes, the couple brought Elvis the rabbit along for their picnic engagement shoot with Shannon Smith…all together now…‘awwwww!’
This is going to sound more than a little bit weird but I almost don’t want to blog these because once I do it will be done and I will be sad that the anticipation, excitement and exhilaration (I’m a very dramatic person) I have been feeling leading up to posting these will be gone. Yes I am very strange…
You might recognise Automne & Graham as one of the finalists in the Tinywater contest I ran a few months ago. As soon as I saw their entry I knew they were a completely awesome punk rock couple and that their wedding would be fab but OH. My. GOD nothing prepared me for this! I am so honoured and excited that the couple have chosen Rock n Roll Bride to be the lucky blog who gets to share their wedding and all the amazing details. Exclusives rock! I seriously want to cover this post with kisses, love and hearts ♥ ♥ ♥
After the immense Blog Land popularity (in fact bordering on obsession!) of Ben Blood’s last wedding (the gorgeous treehouse affair) I was over the moon this morning when Ben sent me his newest triumph for an exclusive an first blog on Rock n Roll Bride!
Karley & Scott had a beautiful vintage tea party style wedding complete with genuine vintage finds, a vintage style gown and beautiful yellow shoes. I’m sure you’ll Ben gets pretty much only amazing clients!
Evan & Angela’s wedding was at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, BC. They had an intimate event with just 20 or 30 guests within their own bridal penthouse suite with an antique/bird theme. They set up a typewriter to be used a vintage style guest book, birdcages around the room and old-time candy for goodie-bag favours. They are both photographers as well so there were antique cameras scattered about as well as lots of shots taken with Evan’s old Polaroid Land Camera. Angela’s veil was handmade by an artist in Portland, OR and her dress was designed by local Seattle designer Chrissy Wai-Ching. It’s a pretty damn amazing dress huh?
Suzy & Gerard actually got married in 2005 but still wanted a day (years!?) after shoot with the amazingly talented Megan Welker– well who wouldn’t! They almost had a disaster with the dress however as after Suzy got it back from the cleaners she discovered they had taken out all of the puckers making those stunning billowy pleats,OMG cricis!! Luckily they knew a fabulous seamstress who painstakingly put them all back in for the shoot. It almost never happened and that would have been a travesty!
Oh. My. GOD!
This hippy chic, picnic stylee wedding with a woodstock vibe is nothing short of phenomenal. Finding amazing hidden gems like this has got to be one of my favourite things to do. I feel as though I have unearthed a complete treasure.
Forget everything you think you know about weddings. This celebration makes all that seem futile. Can you imagine being there? Cramming into a tiny tent, siting on your friends laps or on the floor just to see your best friend’s get married. She’s wearing a stunning vintage gown (which the little girls all clearly adore!) and he’s wearing a fabulously retro velvet suit. And the car…and the swing…and the random panda head…oooh oooh oooooh!
I want to go and run around a field like a child and celebrate the joy of love right now…
