Chris & Jenn’s Rockabilly Car-Inspired Wedding

“The style and ambiance of our wedding had more to do with who we are as people than outside inspiration,” newlywed’s Chris & Jenn explained. “We find culture and appeal in a simpler moment in history. The 1950’s are, after all, the birth of subculture; car culture was at the heart of this movement. We live, breathe, and bleed this car culture so it followed suit to incorporate our life into our wedding.”

So it was themselves and their own personal style and outlook on life that inspired their rockabilly wedding. The Californian couple made the wedding their own and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Jenn’s dress by Allure Bridals wasn’t perfect for her until she cut it short herself to show off her awesome saddle shoes. Aren’t those gorgeous?

Chris wore a custom suit and he was in charge of the centrepieces, made from carburetors, and yes he made them himself! Finally, the couple belong to a car club called Koffin’s Car Club in Santa Cruz California and they had a whole host of retro cars at the wedding parked outside the venue.

Thanks to Chris & Jenn and their photographer’s Encarnacion Photography for sharing this awesome wedding on my blog today.

    Those shoes are fantastic!! And I love the ties! If you happen across where the ties are from, please let me know!

    Thank you for featuring our wedding, it was definitely a dream come true!

    My shoes are from T.U.K., a British shoe company. I purchased them on their online store. I’m not sure if they are available still. I got them 1 year before my actual wedding because they were exactly what I was looking for.

    The men’s ties were purchased from You can search for the Cyberoptix Tie Lab. They silk screen a ton of awesome designs on nice ties.

    Thanks for all the interest into our lives 🙂

    Love the bright colours and the dress 🙂 It’s lovely when the centrepieces aren’t flowers and are really personal x
