Polka Dot Bride

When Leslie & Steve got married they decided to all kick it with their Converse trainers (that’s Chucks to you guys in the States), even the Bride got in on the action, rocking her green trainers under her beyond awesome polka dot dress (I am still waiting to find out where she got it from, don’t worry I will let you know when I do!) The theme was glorious green which really brightened up an otherwise cold winter wedding.

Edit: Leslie’s dress is by Galina

Til Death

Jessie & Cat clearly love tattoos and even got matching skull & crossbones tats with the words ‘Til Death’ across their hearts – sweet! I am crazy in love with the baby Converse trainers used as a cake topper too, what a fabulous idea that is.

Thanks to Molly for these – I will be sharing more of her weddings soon!

Oriental Obsession

Ever since our honeymoon in Japan, I have been crazy about all things Japanese – whether that be Hello Kitty, the ridiculously scary horror movies, the food (my friends will vouch for this one – I don’t think anyone has a sushi obsession like me) the fashion or just all things generally kawaii!

This Japanese influenced wedding was sent to me by photographer Aaron Spicer, and with an oriental obsession like mine, how could I say no? He describes the day:
Kyle and Nicole were married on Sunday May 17th, 2009 in Richmond, VA at Maymont Park in the Japanese Gardens. The ceremony took place by a rustic Japanese pagoda that neighbors a Koi pond. Everything that could be done DIY, was.  Nicole’s mother made her dress and all of the bridesmaids dresses. Kyle and Nicole handmade over five hundred origami cranes, and gift boxes that included wasabi peas, ginger candy and other Japanese treats. Nicole’s sister designed the wedding programs, as well. The bridesmaids all carried parasols, and the groomsmen all wore red Converse All-Stars to match Nicole’s red shoes. Nicole carried purple lilies. The reception was held in a tent on the grounds of Maymont. It was decorated with origami cranes, lit votives and Japanese lanterns. The night concluded with a traditional money dance set to a polka dance. 

Yep, Japan is definitely amazing. I want to live there please!

Bookworm Bride

Melissa & Adam, two self-proclaimed bookworms (check out that cake!) had a fabulously bright, fun wedding. The details are just wonderful – their shoes, the daisy pomander bouquet, the paper pom poms, the sweet n simple table layout…oh and I am crazy about those ring shots! So original and so colourful!

Thanks Rob – you rock!
