Captivating

January 13, 2009

I love it when people send me their own weddings – it makes me feel like a real wedding blogger and not like I’m just sat here doing this all on my own (hey people are actually reading my blog!?)

Anyway, Kasey sent me these photographs or her wedding and asked if I liked them to email her and she’d send me more details for the blog….erm excuse me? What’s not to like? How stunning is this girl!?

The couple wanted a vintage/modern/earthy feel to the wedding, so Kasey picked teal and orange as their colour palate. Their venue was Hickory Street Annex in Texas, and Kasey said she absolutely fell in love with this venue the first time she saw it.

The dress was found at Patsy’s Bridal, and originaly had long lace sleeves, but it wasn’t exactly what she wanted and it didn’t fit perfectly, nevertheless with some vision and creativity in mind, Kasey bought the dress on the spot, took it to an alterations lady, and she worked her magic. They cut the sleeves off, added in some boning, and viola! It was exactly what she had imagined it to be!

The couple saved the pennies (or should that be cents) by going diy. A friend did their engagement shots, the dress was a bargain (Claire Pettibone),they bought in their own alcohol (always a MASSIVE money saver!) and used an up and coming photographer. Kasey also designed and printed her own invitations and programs ( as did we, and I loved it!)

Anyway enough of my chit chat…just check out these fabulous photographs…what a hottie she is!

  1. Can’t beat a gorgeous wedding in Suffolk! My favourite place!
    I love all the little details – the cake and the stationery are very cute!!
    And that bouquet too!! I love that all of the flowers aren’t ‘matchy-matchy’, that can get boring sometimes! I love flowers, and I like to see lots of variety!

    What a great choice of fabrics for the dresses and I love the vintage style as well. The flower girls’ dresses actually reminded me of a dress I made for a friend of mine two years ago but this model is really brilliant. A few days ago I discovered a great fabric store here in my native Toronto called King Textiles that offers the world’s finest fabrics and I always go there when somebody asks me to make a dress or other decorations for them. And I have to say the dress in the picture is a great inspiration for me to improve my older pieces and to create a new one from the fabrics I buy in that shop. 🙂
