Lindsey and Kyle’s engagement shoot is on a whole next level of CUTE. Kat first saw this in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group (which you can join here) and fell in love with them and their approach to wedding planning, as exemplified by this tropical-inspired photo shoot.
Although they’d originally had a mini shoot right after their engagement, Lindsey and Kyle chose to redo them to stay true to who they were as a couple. Lindsey explains: “I was inspired by seeing another photo shoot that a couple had done a flamingo theme. As our wedding was having a tropical theme it was perfect. It didn’t quite work out with what we were aiming for – apparently it’s very hard to find lawn flamingos in Florida in the summer (who knew?) – so we just decided to keep shooting. We were going out of town the next day for a tattoo convention in New Mexico, so we just went out to the beach, to have fun and to make it work!”
Their shoot was located on St Pete Beach, Florida, at the public access beach, with V Simpson Photography – and we have to say, they’re naturals in front of the camera. “Nothing was staged, and that’s how I think we got the best out of it,” Lindsey explains. Special mention should go to Kyle, too, who rocks the camera amazingly – what a groom!
Celia has always always dreamed of being a mermaid, and both her and Jared have a strong love for the ocean, so they knew they had to make their commitment to one another standing in the waves. They live close to where their ceremony was held – El Matador Beach, Malibu – so knew the location would be perfect roaming cliffs, sunset views and ocean that stretched for miles and miles.
Celia always imagined getting married in a less traditional way, and this carried through in her blush, tulle dress and choice of flowers; she bought a simple bouquet from the supermarket and added natural pieces that they collected on their walk to their ceremony!
“I picked green and yellow mountain crawlers from the cliffs, and dried washed up kelp from the ocean. It all came together to create a beautifully natural bouquet fit for a mermaid!” explained Celia.
If this bride looks familiar to you it might be because you saw her modelling in Rock n Roll Bride magazine last year! When we met for that shoot, Martha told me all about her Thailand wedding plans so as you can imagine I’m totally thrilled to be sharing it with you today!
She and her fiance Kris decided that a big formal wedding wasn’t for them. Instead they wanted to fly to somewhere they’d never been before, taking eight of their friends and family members along for the ride. They also brought their besties, The Costa Sisters with them to do their epic wedding video. And epic really is the only way to describe what they produced.
You’re going to want to turn this UP!
They were married in February at Rocky’s Resort in Koh Samui. They spent five glorious days in the resort followed by travelling around Thailand for their honeymoon.
“Our wedding was chilled and tropical”, explained Martha. “We love to travel and Thailand was on our bucket list, so we thought why not combine the two? We spent three weeks travelling around Thailand before and after our wedding. We just wanted to do what WE really wanted. After all a wedding is about the two of you and how you want to celebrate your relationship. It was perfect for us.”
