Vanessa & Matthew had a personal and private retro rockabilly ceremony on the 4th September. Vanessa was 4 months pregnant on their ceremony day but her Dolly Couture dress compliments her mini bump perfectly. Unusually however the couple held off having their reception until October and so I have been waiting since September to share the full set!
Allison & Gabe’s wedding day started like every other – excitable, elegant, stylish and full of lurrrrve – then night fell and the chaos and fun of rock star proportions ensued! I love how the couple’s attire matches their mood – beginning of the day – excited, demure and classy (I adore Allison’s simple dress which she got on sale in Bloomingdale’s), end of the night – ruffled and rocking the hell out (and again I adore Allison’s dress – which she actually made herself – she bought a basic tutu from Etsy but the rest was all her own work!) In fact it wasn’t just the bride who changed – the whole wedding party got changed (the women from pastels into black ruffles – again make by the bride from tutu’s found on Etsy – and the men into dinner suits) for the massive party at the end of the night!
The colour and fun of this stunning wedding really made me smile – oh and isn’t Aubrey, the bride, totally hot too?! I adore her cuuute short dress and birdcage veil combo. The shots of the wedding party in front of the blue house are also too fabulous for words – they make me want a bright blue house…actually strike that – it is of course a bright pink house that I want!
And I mean geeky in the BEST way possible! I am a huge geek fan (and I even married one myself) Emma & Daniel had their very own geek fest wedding incorporating everything they love – gadgets, games, Japanese culture…and CAKE (seriously this sounds like my husbands dream wedding!)
Summer & Christopher’s wedding took place in July in a cemetery/mausoleum where the bride’s mother works at their beautiful 1920’s era chapel – certainly made for some awesome shots huh!? Summer told me:
“It didn’t bother us that the chapel had a mausoleum inside of it. It’s not that we were being purposely macabre, but we both have an understanding of the cycle of life, and felt that it would be beautiful, appropriate, and romantic, to have our wedding in a place which encompassed beauty and history. It was also a nice tribute to my mom, who brought me up with the understanding that death is just another part of life”
Liz & Pete’s blissful backyard wedding was fit to bursting with happiness and joy. Can’t you tell that from just these images alone? Beautiful details and quirky ideas made this relaxed day very special indeed. Be sure to also watch their super 8 video (after the jump) which will really bring it all to life!
