Amanda & Byron got married in April at The Lake House Inn – Perkasie, PA. The couple met while working at the Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia. He was the though security guard and she was the box office girl/cocktail waitress.
Their proposal story is so adorable I had to share it before you see their awesome tattooed wedding. “On a hot summer day in July 2008 we decided to drive to Hamburg, PA and hike up to the Pinnacle, which overlooks the vast Lehigh Valley” Amanda told me. “We are not avid hikers – we just like nature.
We started the hike up the trail which began as a small incline then transitioned to a steep climb. Our hike turned into more or a crawl (mostly for Amanda) as we pulled ourselves up the ridiculously vertical trail. After a few breaks and questioning our fate, we decided to hike back down the trail and find a nice place to relax and have our picnic. The climb down was just as difficult – but filled with laughter and exhaust we were having a wonderful time.”
Stand by for Las Vegas awesome – part deux! Jessica & John’s rockabilly diy fest. of a wedding makes me happieeee indeed. Not only does Jessica look ridiculously haaawt in her Oleg Cassini dress and homemade jacket but the whole affair was so personal and diy fabulous – who said Vegas wedding were tacky?
Jessica spent a lot of time getting her diy projects just right. She made everything from the decor to the flowers, from the gift bags to the table runners and photo booth. Here is a run down of the whole shebang…
Is your mind ready to be blown?!
Half way through the reception, Kestrin changed into a green vintage number. Made by Rebellion Dogs, Kestrin said: “It felt like I was wearing a ladybug tutu, an absolute dream.” She found it on a whim, just before the wedding, at Talun on Echo Park Blvd in LA..
Day 2 of the wedding started out early, at Palace Hotel, San Fransisco and after finding some cute vintage pantaloons, she and photographer Noa embarked on an impromptu 10 minute boudoir sesh! They them got dressed up again in their glad rags and headed to the Day 2 reception which was held at Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco, an exquisite plant and tree store run by Jonathan’s older sister. About 300 guests attended.
As a general rule, I don’t like to feature weddings that have been seen on other blogs. I figure that if they’re on one blog you’ll have seen them and there is nothing more boring than seeing the same wedding/story over and over again…plus that’s why I started Thursday Treats, to give you a definitive round up just in case you’ve missed anything epic in blog land.
However, rules are made to be broken and when I saw Kestrin & Jonathan’s 2 day wedding, firstly on photographer Noa’s facebook and then on uber blog Style me Pretty I knew I’d have to share some of these images with you too. Incredible doesn’t even cover it.
The bride wore 3 amazing dresses. The first, a white Monique Lhullier number. ” It is based on Monique’s “Poetry” dress, and Kestrin requested a change from the original silk tulle trumpet shaped skirt into an A-line with a bustled train. The designers worked with Kestrin to get the exact shape she wanted, accentuating her waistline and de-emphasizing her hips. Before and after the ceremony she added a vintage velvet pashmina for warmth. Kestrin was absolutely STUNNING!” Noa said.
After featuring Alissa & Rich’s crazy-stylish engagement last May, I couldn’t wait to see their wedding and they certainly haven’t disappointed! Alissa told me all about their ‘vintage, rustic, chic’ wedding.
“After an extensive search for a photographer, we found Laura Grier at Beautiful Day Photography. We fell in love with her laid back photo-journalistic style and her infectious positive energy. Through Laura, we ended up finding our wedding location, Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse in Los Olivos, California, based on the photos from one of the gorgeous weddings she shot there.”
Courtney & Dan got married at MGM signature patio, Las Vegas, and had their Rock n Rollin’ Reception at Diego’s restaurant in MGM. The couple both love Cinco De Mayo, collect hot sauce, their first date was at a Mexican restaurant and they love Mariachi bands, so the wedding has a slight Mexican theme.
Courtney originally had a traditional wedding dress, but a few days before she got on the plane to Vegas she went to the fitting to find her dress was to small. It was fate! Courtney knew there wasn’t going to be enough time to fix it, so she went to a prom shop in Philadelphia and found this gorgeous dress.
