A Bride in Boots

Oh Dan & Dayna you’ve made my day! What an awesome wedding and a fantastic story. I’ve been dying to share these all weekend! I knew this would be an awesome wedding in fact as soon a photographer Matthew told me that the bride was part of the Vaudeville Circus (you can see her in action here – far right in the white dress)

“I wanted to have a rock-n-roll wedding that felt like Dan and I had our hands all over” explained Dayna  “I spent a lot of time pouring over wedding blogs and getting inspiration from cool brides.  I picked themes that we both loved like reading, hence the book center pieces and framed quotes from our favorite authors, Fall and the month of October (the colors and flowers),  simple down home (and cheap!) mason jars as vases.  All of our music the entire day was hand picked and never ‘traditional’: wedding procession we had our friend play the ukulele, bridal march was Cat Powers “Sea of Love” (followed by The Honeydrippers “Sea of Love” for our first dance), our walk as husband and wife was Joey Ramone’s “Wonderful World”.  Our flower girls wore homemade tutu’s, leotards and ballet slippers. We had a drawing after dinner with silly gifts of our life so far (a DVD of the first movie we saw, a pint glass from the restaurant where we met, a dvd of “It’s a Wonderful Life” cuz we’re nerds and watch it every year…). It was a rockin’ day for sure!”

NEWSFLASH!

Stand by for the announcement of the year…Yes I, Kat Williams obsessed with all things blog am taking the weekend OFF! “Holy crap” I hear you cry, “How is such a thing possible?” Well you’re right, this will be my first weekend away from the blog since…well…January I reckon. How ridiculous is that?

Gareth & I are heading to a family event and whilst I would normally work my fingers to the bone the week before scheduling posts over the weekend so you wouldn’t miss me, I’ve decided that I really could do with a bit of a break and this weekend away to just concentrate on me and Gareth, not worry about moderating comments, replying to emails or checking my twitter. Therefore if you do need to get hold of me you’ll just have to wait!

Have a good old weekend people. Love you all! But hang on, I couldn’t leave you with nothing could I? No no no no….let’s hope theis funky engagement shoot by UK photographer David McNeil keep you busy until I return.

One Happy Rock Star

Whoa sexy mamma! A boudoir shoot with a rock n roll edge? I likey. The Bride who sent these to me said her husband was ‘one happy rock star’when he saw them – I bet! I love the shots with the guitar but my absolute favourites have got to be the set in the damn gorgeous bright pink tutu – I’ve got to get myself one of those.

I don’t get to feature enough rockin’ boudoir shoots, if you’ve got one don’t be shy – send it my way.

Suicidal Bride!?

I love this shoot and I love the inspirational Bride in her ‘something blue’ Doc Martins, but more than that I love the story that goes along with this set.

Photographer Jennifer Williams explained:
The highlight of the shoot has got to be being pulled over by the Kern County Sheriff! Heather and I took a few shots at a bridge. Little did we know what a scene it would cause. When I left Heather sitting at the bridge while I went to get the car (her shoes were cute but not so comfortable) people called in reporting a suicidal bride getting ready to jump! Lucky for me, the sheriff thought it was really funny. When I explained we were doing a photo shoot, and there was not a run away bride wasn’t about to jump off the bridge, he sent us on our way.

Wai Ching + Fluevog = Yum

She took my breath away w!hen we first stepped in the bridal preparation room at the Rose Garden Inn. She was so elegant and so beautiful. The mood was calm, comfortable silences interrupted by feminine giggles. As she cut a part of her mother’s veil to add on to the hairpiece, I noted how important family was to her. Her red knee high boots sat in the corner as she got laced into her corset, accentuating her hourglass figure. Every move was deliberate and graceful, she was so inspiring. Everything about her was so unique, her red Wai Ching dress was perfect.

Corset: Dark Garden
