Colourful Funfetti Garden Party Wedding

Inspired by Pinterest, Rock n Roll Bride, and their own personalities, Bree and Tim described their wedding as a rustic funfetti garden party.

They met in television, and Bree introduced herself in such a sweet and laidback way, “We were both working at a show in San Diego”, she explained. “I was hosting a show called First Date for Live Nation, he was a production assistant. I passed him a note at the end of the night that said, ‘Text me, maybe?'”

The wedding day was held at the McGuire Estate and Garden, which is the bride’s childhood home, and was officiated by their best friend. The bride’s sister, Charlotte, did all the signage, with other decorations of garlands by Paper Fox LA, hula hoops from Hipnotic Hoopla, and tiny dolls from HuskySnail, all on Etsy, plus candles from IKEA.

“We scrapped a lot of traditional stuff”. she continued. “We did pinata smashes in place of a bouquet/garter toss (inside were colourful saltwater taffy, mini bottles of booze and a ring pop that said YOU’RE NEXT). We had an open air photo booth in place of posed, formal photos. There was no bridal party or groomsmen, we wanted to keep it SIMPLE.”

Treasure Island & Pirate Wedding in a Castle

Zoya and JP’s wedding day was themed around themselves and the things they love, which meant the groom’s Scottish heritage, florals, pirates!

“The day celebrated all we hold as fun and great about each other”, began JP. “From my Scottish heritage, to my wife’s amazing love of all things floral, to our love of pirate events to Treasure Island and the sea, to great food and dancing the night away with close friends. We kept thinking what would make people smile and have fun, and what would make them think, ‘That’s so JP & Zoya!’ – and then we did it!”

The couple married in May at the very grand Lulworth Castle in Dorset, looking out over the sea. They had a legal ceremony first, then a Captain Jack Sparrow actor arrived to officiate a pirate-themed second ceremony! “We made the seating plan into Treasure Island, and the wedding breakfast into a love of all things pirate and sea-scape”, said the bride. “JP and his entire band of seven best men were in full Highland regalia, whilst I wore a floral wedding gown. We involved our Chow Chow throughout the entire day, and all the wedding guests stood as witnesses to our marriage – instead of the usual one or two. Apart from that, it was a standard, run-of-the-mill wedding… If you don’t include the bouncy castle and the rum bar. Oh, and the pirate dress-up!”

A Dog Themed Wedding Shoot

Yes you read that right, I really am publishing a wedding shoot with dogs as the stars today. Why not hey!? Not only are there real life dog models but their human counterparts are rocking all manner of puppy themed clobber and the table is covered in doggie plates, kitsch ornaments and the stationery is all puppy themed. I approve!

“The inspiration for this shoot was pretty simple”, explained photographer Ellie Grace, “DOGS! I am a crazy dog lady and I know that if I got married, I would want as much inclusion of dogs as possible. For this shoot I decided that instead of going down a colour theme or specific style, I just thought, dogs and lots of dogs!”

Bohemian Cactus Farm Wedding in Palm Springs

Courtney and Sanford met at work ten years ago when Sanford came in to cover a shift. They were both wearing the same black women’s jeans and spent the whole time shamelessly flirting and laughing together. During their decade long romance they lived in different places (him in Arizona and her in Southern California) so would often meet up halfway in Palm Springs. When they came to planning their wedding they knew it had to happen there. Their theme was a groovy Palm Springs, classic rock, boho and Halloween mash up!

They had a budget of $14,000. “We definitely had a vision from the start,” began Courtney. “It’s challenging working with a tight budget in Southern California but we both have an eye for good design and details, and with that we were able to be really creative and resourceful! More than anything we wanted it to be warm, fun and very us!”

DIY Wedding in Chile with their Dog as the Videographer!

Wedding photographers Cathy and Seba really knew what they wanted, but also what they didn’t want, for their own wedding. They were married in Chile in August and put their biggest effort into enjoying the whole process and into making as much as possible with their own hands.

“Our wedding was, relaxed, DIY and focused on us and our friends,” said Cathy.  “We didn’t have one specific inspiration, but we made a Pinterest moodboard with all the things we saw all over the internet and wanted for our day.”

Bohemian & Industrial Wedding in Michigan with a $900 Budget!

Ally and Jeff wanted their wedding to really reflect who they are so they chose a bohemian industrial theme. They wanted the styling to be pretty and light but with rough edges. Their wedding budget was just $900, and they saved money by enlisting the help of family and friends where possible.

“Our ceremony was super short and to the point” began Ally, “We only had maybe 40 people there so it was very intimate, with a lot of happy tears. Our favourite part of the wedding had to be seeing how happy and excited our family and close friends were for us both, it really meant a lot.”
