Sweethearts & Rockstars

Words aren’t really needed so much here. I am just loving the laid back surf feel of them all. The images say it all…

Thanks Trish!

A Western Vintage Vacation

After posting Jenn & Skip’s engagements back in May, I was convinced I would totally love their vintage vacation themed wedding – and I guess I was right. They went for a western/vintage vacation theme which was helped along by all their friends and family, not only dressing up for the day, but by helping the couple to DIY the lot!

Jenn made her own veil and fascinator, the invitations, her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the cake, the decorations and the signs. Skip made his own Groom’s cake – a bowling ball and pins – and helped Jenn wherever she needed it! Jenn’s sister and maid of honour made all the cute cupcakes and each Bridesmaid maid their own fascinators. The couple decided not to include anybody in their wedding that they didn’t know – so they had a friend perform the ceremony and other friends chip in with food, hair and make up.

I am obsessed with themed things, so naturally the wedding had to have a theme. Our overall theme was “vintage vacation”. From there we had mini-themes inside the big one. The brides cake and cupcakes were woodland (to go with the mountains). The suggested attire was western. The groomsmen and Dads wore western shirts. The bridesmaids wore headpieces and carried fans, saloon girl style. Both the bride and groom wore cowboy boots (which we already owned)… the groom also had spurs, the hat, the whole shebang! Our favors were vacation & western themed, as well as our decorations, popcorn & candy bar.

Insead of dancing, the wedding was rounded off with fun and games including eating doughnuts on a string, two photobooths, a candy and a popcorn bar.

Wow! Jenn & Skip I am blown away by your wedding. Thanks so much for sharing it!

A Western Vintage Vacation

👰

After posting Jenn & Skip's engagements back in May, I was convinced I would totally love their vintage vacation themed wedding - and I guess I was right. As these exclusive (oh yes) photographs show, their wedding was one seriously themed affair. They went for a western/vintage vacation theme which was helped along by all their friends and family, not only dressing up for the day, but by helping the couple to DIY the lot! Jenn made her own veil and fascinator, the invitations, her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the cake, the decorations and the signs.

Small Town Art Scene

Just a quickie to get you going this morning…
These were send to me by Emily Garrick who flew to Texas for this fabulous shoot.

She describes her experience:
It really centers around a small town art scene. I flew to Texas for this wedding and had no idea where I was going to shoot. Luckily I stumbled anon a vibrant local art scene downtown and took advantage of it for the portraits. I was super lucky to have a bride & groom willing to try anything. Jarett & Julie are very southern, very polite & sweet, but with a southern rock edge to them. It was a treat to work with them and have them trust me completely. I also loved the contrast of his formal tux & her dress with the pin up girl.

Cute huh!?
