When Leslie & Steve got married they decided to all kick it with their Converse trainers (that’s Chucks to you guys in the States), even the Bride got in on the action, rocking her green trainers under her beyond awesome polka dot dress (I am still waiting to find out where she got it from, don’t worry I will let you know when I do!) The theme was glorious green which really brightened up an otherwise cold winter wedding.
Edit: Leslie’s dress is by Galina

If Ginny & Ed’s vintage wedding isn’t featured on every wedding blog out there I will eat my..well, hat. Does photographer Josh Goleman get the best clients or what?! Remember these guys for example? Yep…amazing!
Although my automatic reaction is usually to be against the idea of asking guests to dress as per the theme of your wedding, I have to admit the effect of everyone vintaged-up together is phenomonal to say the least. I am literally dying of excitement to share these!

With a rock star Groom like Jeremy would you expect anything less than a wedding like this? The couple choose an awesome venue and had live music a go go! They walked down the aisle to Led Zeppelin and had friends playing an acoustic set during their ‘cocktail lounge’. The speeches sound like they were somewhat epic, with Alison’s brother even getting everyone shout “For those about to rock, we salute you” at the end of his toast! Jeremy’s parents rapped during their speech and Alison’s dad sang for his.
For favours the couple made a ‘Rock Star Survival Kit’ including a custom guitar pick, a shot glass and bubble gum. The couple also got their wedding rings engraved with the words ‘you rock’ on his, and ‘you rule’ on hers (made by The Devil’s Workshop)…definitely not the usual soppy stuff! Alison’s dress was by Alfred Angelo, her hair piece by Etsy seller, GG Designs and her gorgeous bouquet & Jeremy’s boutonniere were made by Princess Lasertron.
I think this wedding is quite different to the style I usually favour, but I still love it! The hat reminds me of going to English weddings where all the ladies wear big adornments on their heads.
Photographer Courtney, described this day to me:
Megan and Norm were married on May 30, 2009 at Willow Park in Louisville, Ky. That had no attendants, except for their “ring dog” Misha.
Megan didn’t opt for traditional hand-held bouquet instead chose to
compliment her outfit with a huge, gorgeous hat.
The Bride and Groom opted to accent their wedding with fleur-de-lis, a symbol of Louisville. While the guests noshed away on vegetarian friendly fare, trashcans were adorned with signs informing everyone that all the serving ware was fully biodegradable.
The music before the ceremony and during the ceremony was provided by
local musician friends, and the guests danced during the reception to the
musical stylings of a ragtime band, Rascals of Ragtyme.

After posting Dana (of The Broke Ass Bride fame) & Hunter’s awesome ‘Fresh Hubby of LA’ wedding video I thought I was done. I saw their phenomenal
photographs by Dan of Chennergy (who shot their wedding for free!) but decided to not share them straight away as I assumed photography as fantastic as this would pop up on all the wedding blogs. However it seems that maybe everybody else had the same idea as me, and while I’ve seen their video everywhere I look their photographs seem to have fallen to the wayside maybe just a little bit. That, my friends, is a travesty of utmost proportions. These must be seen and adored. Enjoy and be sure to check out Dana’s blog for all the juicy details.

Sara & Matthew have sent me their wedding along with 150 of their favourite images from the day – and nope you didn’t read that wrong! While this may be slightly over the top I have to say it is indeed a rather fabulous wedding The couple had their ceremony at an old brick house under a huge tree with a few leaves missing where they hung bird cages to tie in their bird theme. They had their portraits at Princeton University and then headed to their reception at a Brewery and instead of the usual champagne reception, the couple served samples of local beer!
Sara’s dress was Selena by Maggie Sottero and her shoes by Irregular Choice, her Bridesmaids wore dresses by Niteline. The Bride embarked on a DIY frenzy making the ring bearer pillows, the table numbers, the aisle decor along with the tree and the flower centrepieces themselves – phew!
