Athena & Branden’s Super Stylish, Whimsical & Vintage Wedding Day

Athena & Branden are like old friends of the Rock n Roll Bride wedding blog. I featured their gorgeous whimsical engagement session back in the Summer so I’m really pleased to share their stunning wedding today too.

The Bride wore a Nicole Miller dress with a dramatic vintage-inspired necklace that she made herself from lace. She kept her look unique with a beautiful puffball veil from Toni Federici and a bow from Forever 21. Her earrings were also DIY – made by a friend for her.

Branden kept his look contemporary with a twist, with his suit and bow tie combo from Brooks Brothers and Nike trainers.

Their reception décor was mostly a DIY effort. The couple used vintage suitcases as a cake stand, a typewriter as  a guest book and lots of personal touches like the cute custom cake topper (complete with Antena’s tattoos!) to make their reception perfect for them.

What a fabulously stylish couple!

Be sure to also check out their fabulous (seriously fabulous!!) wedding film after the ‘jump’ too. I LOVE IT!

    I so loved this wedding, especially since the groom is my son. So happy that Athena is now our “daughter”. The pictures and video did a great job capturing the essence of the day!

    A perfect wedding – the photography and film is stunning…. I love the balloons used for the reception – can’t seem to source them in the UK… Are they standard weather balloons?
