Honey to the Bee…A Gorgeous DIY, Homespun Wedding

I love Bryan & Claira’s adorable rustic, homespun wedding. It was held at Hill Country Village, which is right out in the middle of the country that surrounds Shreveport, LA. “It has an old grocery store, a couple old farm houses and this big brick venue where we held our reception. The wedding itself was outside amongst all of these fun old buildings” Claira told me. 

The wedding had a family orientated, diy feel to it with the bride’s Aunt helping with the flowers and even their photographer Kelly’s Mum making the cake! “The cake itself is based off of a ceramics piece I made early on into my studies as a potter here at the Savannah College of Art and Design” Claira continued. “Hill Country Village has a man named Bill who is incredibly on top of his game that makes delicious food and was more than happy to accommodate our vegetarian taste buds.” 

Instead of favours, the couple donated beehives to a family in need through Heifer International and made little slips of paper with twine to let their guests know. Claira wore a dress which belonged to her Great-Grandmother which she had altered a little around the neck and bust. “It was so much fun to wear such a beautiful and meaningful gown” she said. Bryan helped her find her shoes and she was very careful about choosing her accessories, “I wanted something that was a little funky and 1930’sish. I found the earrings on Etsy and the necklace I wore was my Great Aunts (who’s wedding band I received).”

Tattoos, Soul & an Awesome Pink Bicycle

Simple, sweet, tattooed Nashville lovelies. I am crazy in love with the pink bike (erm…of course) the vintage records (another trend I’m not yet tired of) and the lake side setting. That water looks incredible and it goes without saying that Rennie & Joe are one hell of a cool couple. LOVE!

I am already looking forward to seeing the results of their Septemeber wedding after Rennie told me, “We have known each other for 19 years (we met at age 11 and were each other’s first kiss), we felt that our engagement photos should showcase the life we’ve built together. We opted to have a simple shoot at our home rather than a ‘location shoot’. Our wedding will be this September and we will feature a 1960’s theme – rock n’ roll, soul, dresses from 1960’s Vogue patterns and vintage motorcycles (Joe has restored a 1973 Norton Commando)”

Candace & Tyler are way.too.awesome. he even calls her ‘Cupcake’ AND she has the word tattooed on this inside of her fingers. Oh swoon swoon swoon… I can’t wait to see/blog their wedding. I might die with anticipation.

Slightly Damp but Oh-So-Gorgeous Engagement Session

Maura & John’s slightly damp, slightly vintage and more than slightly gorgeous engagement session is totally inspiring! I love how they incorporated the things they love into the shoot – they collect old schwinn bikes, love going for bike rides and are crazy about all things vintage/retro/antique so they used some antique china for a mini picnic setting. Cuteness.

Victorian Steampunk & Fancy Dress Fun

Caroline & Connor’s wedding had a distinctly Victorian/Steampunk vibe. As well as the bridal party, all the guests really got into the spirit and dressed up for the occasion in vintage dresses and attire which was practically all put together by the amazing Trish Roush at House of Nines Design. Not only did she help out the guests with their outfits, but she dressed the bride and groom – including making those incredible hats (plus, I just have to add, how incredible is Connor’s moustache?!)

Pretty much everything about this wedding was unique and found at random vintage/thrift stores. The bride found her dress online (purchased from an independent seller not from a store I’m afraid) which was no mean feat as most genuine vintage dresses are teeny tiny! However with some clever corsetry Caroline looked every bit the Victorian princess.
