Detail Perfect

Wow I have a lot (and I mean a hell of a lot!) of wedding awesomeness to share today. I almost don’t know where to start!

With a couple that are both artists (her an Etsy Seller - Drink & Dream; him a musician) I wouldn’t expect anything less than a detail-perfect wedding. Photographer Kella described these personal touches to me:

there were canvas welcome bags with the i love nj logo, hand embroidered {by addie} handkerchiefs for her mom and grandfather, a personalized cake topper of the couple and their boston terrier bonnie, delicious shortbread cookies, really fun signage, vintage inspired pendants hanging around the ceremony, and my favorite a gallery style of photos on the wall at the reception featuring family weddings pics! the list goes on and on, but these were my faves! addie wore a glamorous + vintage inspired satin dress from Jenny Packham with, very cool round metallic shoes, lots of sparkly jewelry and sean wore a toffee and orange pinstriped suit with suspenders {loved, loved their overall vintage vibe!}

Thanks for sharing Kella!

Bristol Boho

Marie & David’s chilled out Bristol wedding is so super gorgeous. I am crazy about her quirky, unusual look and their stunning but simple restaurant location.

Thanks to David for sending these!

Cyclops Wedding

Katrina & Derek Irish Pub wedding took place in Boston on the 8th of August. For me, this wedding is amazing because of all the personal touches and details – from the cyclops cake topper to Katrina’s awesome monochrome multi-layered dress (from Second Time Around on Newbury St. in Boston) and the DIY ‘flowers’ set in empty beer bottles, this wedding is definitely one worthy of Rock n Roll status!

Thanks Dennis!

Soft Hues

Don’t judge me ok? I should be in bed (for those of your following me on Twitter you will have no doubt seen the regular updates about my flu!) but I have a compulsion to blog that can not be stopped…

Lisa Rigby shot this outdoor wedding last week and I can’t get enough of the lovely pastel shades. I’m not normally one for subtlety (hello? my hair is pink) but the soft hues of her blue Stephanie James Couture dress coupled with her stunning bouquet and birdcage veil are undeniably gorgeous. The wedding ceremony actually took place at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Quirky, Colourful, Kitsch

I am crazy in love with Tanya & Mark’s amazingly colourful DIY wedding! The event took place in Tanya’s parent’s backyard in Northampton, PA and totally reflected the couple’s quirky, colourful, kitsch style. They really put 100% of themselves into the day. Tanya made the invitations, the felt flowers, the centrepieces and most of the decorations herself and all of the tables were covered with unique vintage fabric sourced from various places throughout the wedding planning. One of my favourite details had got to be the pink flamingos everywhere though! Tanya says she has a slight obsession with John Waters so this detail was a must!

Tanya found her and her Bridesmaid’s dress from Ebay and her amazing red birdcage veil from Events and Occasions. Her shoes were from Modcloth and her red petticoat was found at Unique Vintage.

Thanks to Tanya and Mark for sharing their day and all the gorgeous details with us!

I Love This!

So I saw this wedding on I Love Lolliblog the other day and was instantly smitten. Then when photographer Christine Chang submitted the wedding to me as well I thought ‘what the hell’ and have decided to break my self-imposed rule of not re-blogging. This wedding is too damn special and too damn rock n roll to pass up!

The gorgeous Bride Kristi, who owns her own jewellery company named Diamond Willow designed and DIYed the whole wedding – from the centrepieces to her stunning peacock bouquet, the boutonnieres and her own flower hairpiece. She wore a sample gown designed by Lian Carlo and her Mum altered the neckline and made the train detachable for dancing.

The Bridesmaids have got to be some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen, rocking their Betsey Johnson frocks, white platform shoes, babies breath bouquets and personalised ‘knuckleduster’ rings designed and made by Heist Jewelry.

Thanks to Christine for sending me these and to I Love Lolliblog for sharing them to begin with!
