Fo’ Real

May 8, 2009

I was never a huge fan of the whole fake moustache at weddings thing that was really popular last year. I think mainly because I just didn’t ‘get’ it? I didn’t (and still don’t) understand what the actual point of it was.
However when it comes to real life moustaches, well that is a completely different matter entirely.  This dude has got one seriously awesome ‘tache going on..coiffed to perfection wouldn’t you say?
Plus his Bride has got some pretty damn cool tattoos so, well, there was no way in hell I wasn’t going to share these was there?

The photographer, Katherine, describes this truly rock n roll wedding:
This couple had the most awesome wedding at Kali Kate in Buda. You’ve seen all the fake mustache weddings where everyone wore a fake mustache -well this groom grew the real thing- which he waxed and combed perfectly.!

Kristin has the best vintage kitchen for shooting still lifes. She’s also a great gardener , so of course she did all her own flowers- from the table arrangements to her beautifully simple bouquet of peony tulips.

She had all of her bridesmaids wore vintage inspired red polka dotted 40’s dresses. And she had a flower fairy instead of a flower girl!

But the best part was the music, a dj spinning real vinyl where he played a song that her Father sang as a opera singer- a surprise for their Father -Daughter dance and the last song was the cool old Pink Floyd song “Fearless”.

    I love the clean look of this wedding, and that ink is amazing, the dress works perfectly to show it off. I will be pinning some from this!

  2. Love the veg! and the dress but most of all that tattoo is amazing! Love how the peacock inspiration floated into other things.

  3. I absolutely love the tattoo and the fact that she had the option of showing it off. It is such a beautiful accessory to the rest of the bridal outfit. The dress was very unique and from what I read she also managed to find a budget-friendly version of her favorite gown. That is always a cherry on top. I have to agree with one of the comments the wedding itself was very “clean”. The details weren’t too much and I agree with the couple, by keeping the decor simple they let the venue and its beauty shine.
    Congrats to the happy couple and kudos to the vendors as well as the photographer, very beautiful photos. Also kudos to RNRBride for the post!

    Beautiful wedding, inspired theme! Especially with the impending release of the Gatsby film soon. The tattoo is a definite show-stealer in itself.

    I am totally in love with that tattoo. Would love to have some ink, and that’s going right to the top of my inspiration list.

    Wow. As a fellow tattooed bride with a vintage/peacock theme, hopefully a cheese-wheel cake, and those exact shoes, I am in awe. Love love love!

  7. Beautiful! I was married at Nonsuch so lots of happy memories 🙂
    Love the beautiful mini veg and the lace gloves!
