I don’t get to feature enough gothic style weddings so when Carmel & Drynn’s rustic yet opulent gothic affair landed on my desk I jumped at the chance to share these.
The Bride told me…
I found my dress at Gothic Wedding Dresses and our flowers were done by Punch Portland. The inspiration for our theme was based on Tim Burton-esque Sleepy Hollow, classic Victorian but with a dark feel. We are kind of “darker” individuals so we wanted that reflected but wanted to do it in a classy tasteful way. We didn’t want to scare our guests too much! We picked Drynn’s hat up at a vintage store the feather piece & my headpieces were done by Cricket Quills.
I featured Meredith & Justin’s cute picnic engagement session a while back so it’s only fitting that I also share their wedding…especially as it turned out as pretty as this – hello…?A tea length textured dress with pockets! Meredith’s dress came from Melissa Sweet and is called Fiesole. It’s a silk strapless tea-length dress with all over horizontal net embellishment and bow at waist and is quite frankly perfect for her. Wow so jealous! hehe
Carnival weddings always make me smile. Jenna & Tommy’s wedding is no different.
I thought I’d share another wedding with you that I did this summer. The bride’s last name was Morrissey which made me instantly think of The Smiths (one of my most favorite bands ever). Jenna and Tommy were married in Providence, RI in Roger Williams Park. Their inspiration was that of a 1950’s carnival complete with carousel, penny candy and popcorn. The bride stole away during the reception to change into a pink vintage dress to surprise her new husband. Their first dance? “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths. Perfectly sweet.
Chris & Carly’s vintage glam wedding was planned with fun in mind..that was it – lets have a blast! The pair didn’t want traditions or fuss to play a part, instead focusing on great style (white bridesmaid dresses oh yes!), a ton of character and a party that they could claim as their own.
With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year and it being a distinctly unconventional theme for a wedding, I have not at all been surprised to receive a number of spooky themed weddings that took place last weekend. I’m kicking today off with Colinne & Shane’s wedding. Some of my favourite details include Colinne’s choice of converse trainers under her dress plus her black diamond engagement ring, the lucky rabbit’s foot that accompanied her bouquet and acted as her ‘something old’. The couple even used the vows from The Corpse Bride as their own!
As soon as I posted a sneak peek of this wedding and that dress last week you went crazy for it..I knew you would! So it is with great pleasure that I bring you the full set of images from this amazing rainbow wedding. The event took place on a beach in Australia and the bride…well…I don’t think words can justify that dress!
The whole wedding party and guests got right into the swing of it, all dressing up in suitably bright colours. Isn’t the result just fantastic!?
Edit: OMG Anya the bride just emailed me the link to her website and blog. Hell you have to shoot over there to see their day after shoot! it’s just as awesome…She has also posts mucho details about their day.
