Lydia & Zonte. Cool as F***

Wow, hello beautiful people! Lydia & Zonte may well be one of the coolest couples I’ve seen in ages. Lydia is South Korean (and must be a model I swear!) and Zonte is a dancer. They live in Kansas City, Missouri but are getting married in South Korea on August 7th.

I seriously can’t wait to see this wedding – if these engagement shots are anything to go by it’s going to be one cool ass wedding! Do I have the coolest readers or WHAT!?!?!

(be sure to also check out Zonte dancing in the awesome/cute/funny little video after the ‘jump’)

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).”

Fabulous Chicago Town, Quirky & Creative Wedding Fest!

Stop number two on our whirlwind tour takes us to the windy city – aka Chicago. I have always been a massive fan of photographer Jeremy Lawson so when I saw this latest wedding, in the same antique/salvage shop that we all fell in love with from his last wedding that I blogged, I couldn’t wait to get him on board for another feature!

Denise & Mark are both self-confessed quirky and creative types – she is an art director for a music and diy magazine and he runs his very own ‘nerd blog’ Wolf Gnards – so of course their wedding was going to be a super special one. “When it came to the wedding we wanted to create a fun, unique experience for our friends and family” the couple told me. “Our venue was an architectural salvage / loft space which ended up being the inspiration for the whole event– everything from my dress to the centerpieces took on that unique, vintage, diy feel…Expect for the cake– that was straight from the future! But it definitely was a crowd pleaser.”

God, I love that Futurama cake!

All the Colours of the Rainbow

Jackie & John’s massively colour-filled wedding makes my heart sing with joy. Any couple who can’t settle on one colour scheme and go for all the colours is awesome in my book. Those bridesmaids – oh yes!

The wedding took place at 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky – an art gallery space that is quite minimalist so not to take away from the art on the walls. The couple let the venue do what it does best and didn’t worry about adding their own decorations. “Decor was not a big priority to us because I respected the venue’s integrity on it’s own” Jackie told me. “I’m an art history major so it was great to find a venue that reflected that. Plus, 99% of our guests were from out of town, so it was nice to have everything – the ceremony, reception and after party – all under one roof. Everyone partied until they had to cut the band off and then simply staggered upstairs to bed. More than a few out of town guests thanked us for that. I can not speak highly enough of the staff there. We had taken our party upstairs to a couple of hotel rooms and the hotel was getting a couple noise complaints, but instead of telling us to keep it quiet and kill the party, they opened up a meeting room space down in the basement and let us bring our own food, drinks and iPod speakers in and stay as late as we want. My husband and I finally crawled away to our room at 3:30 am or so but I’m told people were in the meeting room until well past sunrise.”

Rock n Roll Sophistication

Rita & Hai’s wedding portraits had me at hello. From her incredible summer dress from Barney’s CO OP that was altered to be a wedding dress, to her flower sash which was custom made by Pish Posh on Etsy and her Diba shoes from Nordstrom. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful silk chiffon Taryn dresses from J Crew and Hai donned a Michael Kors suit with a Burberry tie, J Crew socks and Converse All Stars. The whole thing just screams Rock n Roll sophistication!

High Rocks

When I featured Nadia & Damien’s London engagement session back in January I just knew their wedding would be a beaut’ and these images sent over by the lovely Eliza Claire certainly haven’t disappointed.

The pair got married at The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells which proved a pictureqesue venue with dramatic ‘high rocks’ outside. These acted as the perfect backdrop for some stunning portraits. Nadia looked every bit the glamorous bride in her Stephanie Allin dress which not only has a belt and lace over-lay but had pockets. Yes! stylish and quirky!
