Bowled Away

September 22, 2009

Jessica & Nik had a completely KICK ASS (and that had to be in capitals because I am literally shouting that as I write!) wedding at Northbowl in Philadelphia. The couple, who love all things rockabilly, kitsch and retro – certainly put all of themselves into their freakin’ awesome day. This is one of those weddings that is certainly going to do the rounds of Blog-Land so I am honoured that Amanda & Carina have elected Rock n Roll Bride to be the first blog to share them!


As artists (Jessica a graphic designer and printmaker and Nik an illustrator) they were certainly the perfect pair to pull off such a stylish gathering. Jessica even made the adorable fawn cake topper herself (which she sells on Etsy if you want one of your own) to accompany the cupcakes (supplied by Brown Betty.) For the frames they scoured TJ Maxx (TKMaxx if you’re in the UK like me!) and Michael’sand spray painted them themselves

Jessica’s dress was from Vivien of Holloway, she made her own red shrug (swoon!) and her hair piece was from House of Telsa on Etsy. Nik wore a suit from J Crew and a wicked tie from Cyberoptix TieLab.

These two certainly are doing it for the girls. What a fantastic day!

Thanks, as ever to the faaaaabulous Amanda & Carina for sending me the images and info. Love you guys!
