W. Scott Chester – Sarah & John

I am an inpatient kinda girl..If I see something I want, well I want it now and I want it quick!  However I was willing to wait to post these three fantastic weddings by Cristen of W. Scott Chester to make sure I got the posts absolutely right.  You are going to love these, so hold on to your hats!

I am in love with the evening (and sunset!) portrait from the wedding…and those bridesmaid dresses are so cute!  For more from this wedding clicky here

Sarah + John (words by Cristen)

Married 9.6.08 @ The Foundry at Puritan Mill.  This venue is a really cool industrial type space in Atlanta that we love for weddings-lots of spots for really brilliant photos.  This was definitely one of our favorite weddings of 2008!
A special thanks to Cristen for not only sending me these but working extra hard to get me all the info to make these posts great!

Hanging By The Pool

I was seriously about to sign off and I came across these..they can’t wait.  Black patent shoes, fishnets, a red garter and one of the most fun photo sessions I’ve seen in a while (actually that’s a lie, I see so many amazing sessions everyday I couldn’t possibly pick a favourite)…however the by the pool shot are actually awesome…

Older Is Better

Leo Patrone is one of those photographers I really admire.  I check his site often just hoping for a new little bit of wedding joy to share with you, and today I got lucky!

For some reason I have been all about the vintage/old looking photography today…I don’t know why, I’m just being really drawn to it (to top it off Kathryn @ Snippet&Ink posted a gorgeous wedding today using Poladroid to generate faux Polaroid images of the day – oh how much fun I had after I downloaded that application!)
But anyway, as usual I digress…let’s just enjoy the wonderful Holga goodness of these photographs.

The Summer Of Love

I just can’t wait any longer.  I have to get these amazing photographs from a genuine 1960’s wedding up as soon as possible!  I just know you’re going to love these. 
This post  and the ‘is it/isn’t it an actual wedding from the 70’s?’ debate was so popular (and popped up on so many other blogs afterwards too) that I just know you will all adore this one. (Just in case you were wondering, The Love Boat wedding, actually turned out to be a modern wedding, but done in such an authentic vintage fashion!)

Taadaaa..proper 1968 love…(taken by a 13 year old photographer with a Kodak Instamatic camera!)

A Little Gothic Gem

Have you seen the photographs of Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese’s wedding?  Even though the marriage didn’t last very long (boo) I think these are defiantly worth a post, because if you haven’t seen these you are missing out on an absolute Gothic gem!
Seriously though how many dresses did this glamorous lady have?  I absolutely want to be her.

(I’ve included the text from the Vogue article becuase I think it’s defiantly worth a read!)

Be Inspired

I’ve got one more mini post for you before I sign off for the evening.  After perusing all your survey responses, I’ve discovered that the second most popular response to the question ‘what would you like to see more of on RnR Bride?’ was ‘Inspiration Boards’ (after ‘Real Weddings’ I’m glad to see I’m doing something right!)

Now..I’m no inspiration board expert (yet!) and I’m sure we all know that Kathryn over at Snippet & Ink is the actual queen of all things inspiration board, so for now I’m going to hand over to her with a couple of my favouritest of her amazing boards

However from now on, I want to hear from you.  Send me your inspiration boards, whether they’re for your own weddings or just for fun, and I’ll post the best ones right here…I may even give a prize if I get a lot of entries..but I haven’t thought of what that could be yet, leave that one with me!
