Have you been eagerly sitting by your computer waiting for the next installment of Teneisha & Chris’ crazy-gorgeous wedding extravaganza? I certainly have..every 5 minutes I’ve been checking my email to see if the rest of the photographs have been sent to me…sad? yes, yes I am.
Now if you thought their engagement shoot was to die for then you ain’t seen nothing yet!
I’m actually going to stop gabbing on about it and hand straight over to the couple who have described their wedding and their idea of what makes a rock n roll wedding absolutely perfectly…
The objective for our wedding, besides getting married, was about two things. The first was a goal that every single person have a completely kick ass time, including ourselves, and the second being that we would do things our way, no questions asked. We solved the “having fun” issue pretty easily by getting married on a Saturday evening, in Las Vegas; with a premium open bar and an excellent ipod play list. We served sushi and had chocolate covered strawberries instead of cake at our reception and had an open invitation after-party with a bathtub full of beer and debauchery that lasted until 5am. We also encouraged people to get creative with the dress code, which produced a very colorful crowd.
I think that our Bride and Groom outfits helped to set the right mood as well. I wore a vintage inspired, Sherri Hill polka dotted blue/gold/silver dress with all bright red accessories that I either made myself or bought from independent artists on etsy.com. I had the dress shortened from ballroom to tea length, which everyone tried to talk me out of and I’m so glad I didn’t listen! The groom wore crazy blue pants, suspenders, a fedora and an awesome bow tie that matched my dress perfectly.
You love this couple right? Yeah me too. Again, I can’t thank Teneisha & Chris’ and their wonderful photographer Holly Jones enough for sharing this amazing wedding with me!

That is the only way I can describe this wedding. I am swooning as I type away. Jenny & Johnny are way too stylish and way too cool, their hair ROCKS (I wish I had the balls for a cut like Jenny’s – mohawks are hot!) and of course their tattoos look awesome (Jenny is a hairdresser and Johnny is a tattoo artist, can you tell!?)
In fact I don’t think their is anything I don’t like about this wedding – Jenny’s vintage dress = gorgeous, the flower girl = cute (dress from etsy) the ring ninja (oh yes, no ring bearers here) = beyond wicked. One of my favourite details had got to be their unique guest ‘book’, an original piece art work designed by Johnny of the two of them, that each guest signed.
The couple tied the knot in Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids. There had never been a wedding held here before as it is usually used for concerts and festivals in the summer and as an ice rink in winter.

A scholoristic wedding with a Best Girl rocking it in a top hat is something to be shared. Sharon & Dan definitely went all out to make sure their wedding was truly original, even so far has having the one of a kind 1925 Studebaker as their wedding transport. They also had a theologian conduct their ceremony which was written with the work of Lord Byron, William Morris and Walt Whitman in mind.

Edit: I just recieved an emaiol from the Groom with some great bonus info about their wedding..check it!
We wanted to include a little of all our favourite things in our wedding – thankfully, it all worked together! Sharon’s an artist and curator and I’m a historian and philosopher, so it was only appropriate to hold our ceremony at Villa Alba – a historical house turned museum preserving amazing examples of Aesthetic mural art.
We went for a peacock theme overall – blues, greens and violets – and couldn’t have been happier with the result. Peacocks are associated with empty vanity, but I find them philosophically compelling; it’s been scientifically demonstrated that a peacock’s display is a genuine reflection of its overall health – that’s the evolutionary advantage. Really, they’re a symbol of beauty as the product of abundant life, the kind of happy and creative life we have together.
We both designed our own outfits – each is a mix of early and late 19th century design, Regency and Belle Époque – and our respective dressmakers did amazing work. Most of the accessories are vintage or from independent designers, on Etsy or around Melbourne.Our Bridesmaid and Best Girl, Nix and Charis, are both long-time dear friends. Nix’s dress was by the same dressmaker as Sharon’s, and Charis’s suit and waistcoat from the same vintage shop and tailor which provided my brooch and outfit. Charis’s mother – indeed a leading Doctor of Theology – agreed to conduct our ceremony, for which we are eternally grateful!
Special thanks to photographer Jessie for sharing this wedding with me.

I have something to say and it may be shocking to some of you…I don’t ‘get’ Martha Stewart…what is they fascination? I’m just as crafty as the next geek but something about her repulses me just a little bit. Maybe it’s because the first time I ever heard of her was when she went to jail (I’m in the UK, not Mars by the way) or because whenever I catch her on Wedding TV (yes I am that sad…) I feel inclined to run away. I mean, she’s not very rock n roll is she?
However, I just saw this wedding on her ridiculously kitch (although it pains me to know it’s not even in an ironic way) wedding website, and despite the source this wedding is so uber gorgeous that I have to share the love.
John & Lily married in Lily’s parent’s back garden which had great sentimental value for the couple. Lily’s beautiful bouquet was made of bridal garden roses, dahlias, orchids, lily of the valley, jasmine, sweetpeas, and scented geranium, all tied together with a cute blue ribbon. She also ordered some custom Liberty fabric clutches for her Bridesmaids, each designed to fit the individual girl’s personality.
