Rock n Roll Hearts & Paper Cranes – Lauren & JP’s Perfectly Rockin’ Wedding

Lauren & JP’s amazing wedding video has certainly done the blog-land circuit, but have you seen their gorgeous photographs?! Well my little kittens, guess which blogger has got them to share with you all?! Oh yes the PINK one that’s who!

I got chatting to the bride all about their day. Enjoy…

“We started planning this shin-dig a year ago, and our initial goals were to have a fancy but fun party– a celebration that was filled with our closest friends and family. We wanted the whole thing to be a reflection of us. For instance, our food consisted of 4 sections: German, American, Italian, and Asian-Fusion. Bratwurst, soft pretzels, sliders, bruschetta, and chinese take-out boxes just to name a few items. We wanted it to all be on small-bite side, so people could run to the bar, run to get food, and then go back to dancing, mingling, etc.”

“I’m an artist, graphic designer, and photographer, and all of that ended up heavily influencing our decisions. After our engagement shoot, CMYK theme sort-of emerged based on the day’s attire. JP’s color was cyan, mine was hot-pink, and a mustard yellow was for everybody.  I had some crazy notion to have thistle mixed in with the bouquets and bouts, so our florist went with CMYK with pink peonies, blue thistle, and yellow billy buttons, all mixed with local wildflowers.” 

And if you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out their incredibly original and kick ass awesome wedding video by none other than Rock n Roll Hearts (hello, perfect name!) After the ‘jump’ and for even more juice ion this incredible wedding, check out Lauren’s blog, I Love You Much.

  1. love, love, one-thousand-times love.

    thank you so much for the wonderful feature, kat. (and the truck-ton of OMG pictures!!!)


  2. Lauren is so freakishly talented and pulled together such a colorful/awesome wedding. Everyone looks ecstatic — love it. And the bouquet makes me fall over a little.

  3. These pictures are just SOOOOOOO awesome! I really enjoyed her sneak peak on Wedding bee.. and I love the pics you have featured here. This wedding is truly inspirational!! 🙂

    I absolutely love this wedding! I keep watching their video it’s so amazing! It makes me think of your ‘What is a Rock n Roll Wedding’ post Kat!!

    This wedding sums it up. It has everything you could possibly want. Love in abundance. It ozzes from the couple and shows just how being yourself is what makes any wedding original. Fabulous!!! Love LJP 😀

    Oh my… I have just read Lauren’s post… ‘Wonder why I am disgruntled?’ … what the? I just don’t understand why she has had all that negative attention 🙁 What is wrong with people, why would people be so hurtful over something that is so precious!

    I actually took time to show my husband that video as I thought it was so quirky and personal and he said, ‘wow what a video, what a great couple, they really look completely into each other’. As simple as that statement was I think it sums up what all those people who have posted those awful comments…lack… that someone special to share such amazing creations with. What a bunch of losers!!!

    Lauren you should never take any of those comments to heart as it will destroy your cmyk vision. You are one smart cookie who has the height to raise above it all. We love you more x x x

  6. Penny

    LOVE the video! So gorgeous!! It really captures the joy 😀 Can anybody tell me what that song is called and who it’s by?

  7. I love all the little details in the wedding and the reception. From the paper cranes, the fun sunglasses and loving the shoes. What a awesome time people must have had.

    I LOVE origami in weddings!! I made 1000 paper cranes for my cousins wedding and they decorated the reception site with them.

    I plan on crafting an origami bouquet for my own little wedding one day.
    -sighs wishfully-

  9. Love this wedding! Beautiful, fun, intimate, reflective of the couple’s personalities… Lauren is super talented; looks like all her hard work this past year paid off in an amazing way! Congratulations Lauren and JP!

    I have never seen anything like this before. I am in total awe. What an absolutely talented group of people who created this amazing video. I have watched it over and over and will show it to anyone I can pin down long enough to share in the sheer joy and delight this brings. This video has completely changed my opinion of wedding videograpgy. As a bride to be, getting wed next March I can only dream of pulling off anything as remotely awesome as this…. Congratulations Lauren & JP – you epitomise youth, happiness and love.
