Alternative Shabby Chic Wedding in Brazil: Luana & Aruanã
December 6, 2014
Luana & Aruanã met at work and were engaged within three months! They were married at
Recanto do Barão, in Brazil. “We were going for an alternative shabby chic wedding”, said the bride. “We wanted to have a wedding that looked personal and had a lot of our lives and personality in it. We also wanted it to have a backyard feel.”
“We both got involved in the DIY”, she continued. “All the decorations and the art elements were very important to us. Many personal objects were added into the decorations and Aruanã made the brownies that we served on the reception! We painted 150 gold bottles for the flowers, did ceremony bells, pom poms, finished the invitations with sealing wax and tags, and painted golden frames to hang on the tree. My mom sewed many felt hearts and she also did crochet towels for the tables.”
“Both of our favourite part of the day was the vows”, she concluded. “It was a lot of joy and emotion.”

Isn't it funny when two of your worlds collide?

I knew this wedding was going to be awesome from the few sneaks I'd seen on her feed but I was little prepared for this level of amazement...

Whimsical Carnival Wedding: Rachel & Ryan
June 5, 2013
Rachel and Ryan wanted a beautiful but fun wedding so they decided on a subtle vintage carnival theme. They didn't want it to be cheesy or too overly done, and "No clowns" was top of their list of requirements. "We wanted it to feel like a beautiful whimsical wedding at a carnival and not have it be a cheesy carnival wedding," began Rachel. "We also wanted people to have a good time. We didn't want people saying 'that was nice' we wanted them to shout 'that was fun!' The ceremony was heartfelt enough to make you cry, but funny enough to make you laugh with quirky remarks and personal heartfelt vows. From the start we asked people on the invitations to wear bow ties and suspenders. Everyone loved the dress code and looked straight out of the 50s as the music blared."
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!

Super Kawaii English Country Garden Wedding: Abby & Hoi
October 18, 2014
You might think that there's nothing more traditional in English weddings than a country garden setting, but Abby and Hoi's big day was anything but quaint! They took the traditional elements and turned them on their head. From the bride's short polka dot dress and purple hair, to the Hello Kitty cake and the vintage ice cream cart for dessert, this was a wedding that was quintessentially 'them'.
