Love, Love Me Do…

The Beatles had it right you know…Love Me Do Photography are worth writing home about. I am starting to become their very own personal blog stalker and seem to end up sharing everything they shoot!

Courtney & Justin had an eco friendly wedding at The Old Mill in Rose Valley, PA.

We were amazed with the subtle natural aesthetic and the charming vintage vibe. It is a historic mill that sits in a rhododendron-lined woodland valley right alongside Ridley Creek the couple explained.

Love, Love Me Do…

👰

Courtney & Justin had an eco friendly wedding at The Old Mill in Rose Valley, PA. We were amazed with the subtle natural aesthetic and the charming vintage vibe. It is a historic mill that sits in a rhododendron-lined woodland valley right alongside Ridley Creek the couple explained. For the first 3 months of wedding planning, I scoured the internet looking to purchase for anything wedding related – used dresses, used décor, you name it! I hit the jackpot when a bride from Philadelphia posted an ad on Craigslist selling all the décor used in her “Rustic Vintage” wedding. I bought all of her wedding decorations, including: • Vintage mason jars, antique medicine bottles, and painted metal charger plates used for the table centerpieces. • Green and brown ribbon boards (a DIY project) which were used to hold the place cards • Metal lanterns which our florist used to create an amazing display of artistic genius (see Flowers, below) • Hand crafted table numbers made from framed wooden numbers on a fabric backing I loved the glass and metal and DIY spirit of the décor – it fit our style perfectly, it fit our color scheme perfectly, and it was an eco-friendly reuse of someone else’s wedding items! In fact, we are planning to sell the décor items so that another eco-conscious bride can reuse it all for her own wedding. It’s exciting to think that those items will create happiness for another bride! Courtney's dress was from Adele Wechsler’s line of eco-friendly dresses. Initially she discovered she couldn't afford her perfect dress but lucky for her at Philadelphia's UnBridaled Expo Adele was giving away a gift certificate for one of her dresses and guess who won!? Clearly it was meant to be. The succulents they used were bought from a local garden centre and were put together with moss and flowers collected from various friend's gardens to give a unique and natural look. For all the rest of their eco details, be sure to check outLove Me Do's Blog, (thank you to Amanda & Carina for sharing as usual!) but for now...

Hawaiian Kitsch

Erica & Simon had a Hawaii wedding fit to bursting with gorgeousness. Erica’s stunning dress was flown all the way from England (woohoo) for the event and was custom made for her by her sister-in-law. The couple had a tiki bar, a vintage Vespa, uber cute cupcakes and their bridesmaids all in different candy coloured dresses, all with added to their Hawaii kitsch theme!

Gold.

The graffiti, the black balloons, the derelict and slightly scary looking abandoned buildings – pure rock n roll gold.

Quirky, Colourful, Kitsch

I am crazy in love with Tanya & Mark’s amazingly colourful DIY wedding! The event took place in Tanya’s parent’s backyard in Northampton, PA and totally reflected the couple’s quirky, colourful, kitsch style. They really put 100% of themselves into the day. Tanya made the invitations, the felt flowers, the centrepieces and most of the decorations herself and all of the tables were covered with unique vintage fabric sourced from various places throughout the wedding planning. One of my favourite details had got to be the pink flamingos everywhere though! Tanya says she has a slight obsession with John Waters so this detail was a must!

Tanya found her and her Bridesmaid’s dress from Ebay and her amazing red birdcage veil from Events and Occasions. Her shoes were from Modcloth and her red petticoat was found at Unique Vintage.

Thanks to Tanya and Mark for sharing their day and all the gorgeous details with us!
