A Nerdy, Geeky & Darling Wedding
February 22, 2010
Dena & Patrick’s wedding is certainly Rock n Roll to the max! I adore her cute shoes that show off her gorgeous foot tattoos (I’m so shallow) and that fabulous dress which was Madison by Priscilla of Boston “It had a belt and pockets!” Dana told me ” so I just HAD to have it! I even kept my iphone in my pocket and snapped photos with it during the day” The bridesmaids matched the yellow and grey theme by wearing various grey dresses from Alfred Angelo. The pair were married in the oldest catholic church in Philadelphia (Old St. Joseph’s) and had their reception at an old bank that was the Philadelphia Real World House which has now been turned into an art gallery called Trust House.
My favourite part of Dena’s email to me was her ‘wedding highlights’ so I wanted to share them with you
♥ Taking my bridal portraits in the burial ground where Ben Franklin and several other founding fathers are buried. It is traditionally good luck for brides to throw a penny on Ben’s grave for prosperity!
♥ Taking a taxi to the church which was 4 blocks from the hotel where i got ready and mom freaking out
♥ The art in the gallery. It was a total surprise because they had just hung a brand new show that week.
♥ There was an amazing portraits of a nude Kim Kardasian upstairs and a painted version of Lindsay Lohan’s mug shot. Our family both young and old loved it and thought it was so us!
♥ Also being a bride who rocks glasses!
♥ Ending the night with a group singalong to queen!!
Thanks to Dena & Patrick for sharing their wedding – I am smitten indeed

One of the things that really stood out in your survey responses was that a lot of you wanted more Rock n Roll same sex weddings. Well my dears, you ask and I deliver! I have actually been dying to feature Lindsey & Amanda's wedding for a while now but with wedding season being in full flow I have been a trifle busy! Patience is a virtue though my little kittens and I think you'll realise that wait was worth it when you see these two kick ass chicks!

August 25, 2014
Well this is certainly something you don't see everyday! I have a funny feeling you're going to love this.
Felicia and Joe were hitched at the historic Warner Theatre in Washington DC. The bride wore a Vera Wang gown from her diffusion line at David's Bridal, but she had to compete with that groom of hers who rocked up dressed as his favourite Power Ranger! Who says brides get to have all the fun?
Wes Anderson Inspired Brewery Wedding: Jessica & David
November 17, 2013
The submission I received for Jessica and David's wedding began "If Wes Anderson was a wedding planner..." so instantly my interest was sparked. The Philadelphia wedding was a quirky Southern BBQ with retro touches. "I never knew what to say when people asked what the theme was", explained the bride. "I'd reply with 'It's a wedding... isn't that the theme?' I guess it was more about the color and the mood we wanted to create. I love retro fashion and I also love all those farm/ garden weddings all over wedding blogs. I also had our budget in mind and keeping in the budget helped make a lot of decisions about said theme... so maybe we can call it a budget retro summer garden party!"
My Neighbour Totoro and Star Wars Wedding: Sarah & Adam
April 15, 2014
Sarah and Adam's wedding was a true reflection of them. They love anime and Star Wars, so that was their starting point! The day was held at Priston Mill, Bath, in December. They wanted their day to be quirky (like them!) but also fun for their guests. They had retro games set up on the balcony of the barn and devised various drinking games, matching their theme, for their guests!

A DIY Wedding in Downtown Santa Ana: Candice & Nathaniel
October 17, 2012
One of the things that bums be out about living in the UK is that we can't get married anywhere we like - of course many couples these days opt for a humanist ceremony at the spot of their choice with the 'legal bit' taking place a few days before or after, but it's not really the same. And when I see ceremonies as gorgeous as Candice & Nathaniel right in the heart of Downtown Santa Ana, I'm even more envious!
The wedding took place on June 3rd. The couple organised everything themselves and did so for less than $5000. The ceremony was held on 2nd Street Promenade, and the reception was at Memphis at the Santora, just round the corner. The couple met online and had their first date in the area, and Nathaniel proposed on New Years Eve at Memphis at the Santora,. Basically it was the obvious location for them to have their wedding too!

Attention Whovians! You are going to LOVE what I have to share with you today. We've all seen Doctor Who themed weddings before, but I'm going to put my stake in the ground and say I think this is the best one ever. Not only did Leila and Scott only spend $5000 on their wedding, the attention to detail is totally amazing. Check out that blue wedding cake!
