Budget-Friendly Halloween Wedding with Their Pet Kittens and Pig!

It’s important to have everyone you love close to you on your wedding day. For Alexandrea and Mark, this included Hammy the pig and two kittens, who, along with Alexandrea’s daughter, played a very important part in the day. 

Keeping things small and holding tight to their $5,000 budget was really important to Alexandrea and Mark. They planned their wedding in less than two months, with a wedding dress purchased from an online marketplace and a lot of DIY elements. Alexandrea designed her own faux flower bouquet and styled the day as well as doing her own hair and make-up. She told us, “The bouquet was actually one of our biggest expenses. Fake flowers are so highly priced, for what would fit the theme, we created our own.”

Mountain Lodge Wedding with a Kitten ‘Bouquet’!

Mountain Lodge Wedding (16)

Jenaya and Benjamin’s wedding was inspired by their venue, Kachess Ridge Resort, a private hire rustic log cabin. “Our theme was log cabin meets creepy romantic”, said the groom.

The ceremony was held in the main living room of the cabin. “We had our dear friend officiate and he offered his love with challenges and blessings. Jenaya walked down the aisle to our friend Emily singing Yours by Elle Hendersen. She was holding a kitten instead of a bouquet! Our kids were our whole wedding party and they did great. We wrote our own vows. Everybody cried.”

“For the food we had everybody bring their own special recipes for chilli and pies! My mom made cornbread and honey butter from the bees that my dad keeps. It brought such a sense of community and the food was better than any caterer. I mean, how can you beat family chilli recipes in the fall?”

Photography Friday – Cat Nap

It’s the first week back to the blog after the Christmas and New Year break so I bet you were expecting lots of festive related shots right? Wrong! They were all so boring in comparison to this cute and utterly adorable moment I captured this week.

They’re actually killing me with cute.

Gareth might kill me for sharing these but I don’t care. How could I keep these to myself?!

Photography Friday – Jenga, Alice, Beer & Kittens

This week’s photography Friday is a bit of a ‘week in pictures’ kind of post. Here’s what yours truly got up to over the past 7 days…

Monday was my Dad’s birthday so we went over for a curry and played Jenga. How Rock n Roll is that!? It was ‘crazy Jenga’ we played though, does that make it cooler?!

Jamie, my sister Rachel’s boyfriend…he’s a bit of a Jenga geek.

And the lady herself. I’m not a huge fan of black & white usually, but I had a little play with this one. I kinda like it. Gritty…

On Wednesday I went Christmas shopping and met up with the Rock n Roll Intern, Alice. We had lunch, coffee, gossip and discussed our blog plans for 2011. I’m excited about what we have in store for you!

I loved her Urban Outfitters ring muchly.

Gareth enjoyed some ‘boys time’ with Henry and a few beers.

Rachel wasn’t quite as impressed.

However Rachel certainly wasn’t left out…She and Gareth had a bit of father/daughter time…Is anyone else a little concerned looking at these pictures? I can almost hear Gareth thinking, “aww I wish she was a baby…” Ahh crap!

Seriously cute though. Look at all the LOVE! Now, am I just being a crazy cat lady, or is Rachel actually smiling in this picture?

So, how was your week? Are we getting excited for Christmas yet?!

Photography Friday – Rachel Goes 3D

Rachel had been feeling a little miffed that Henry was getting more blog/twitter love than her. The quieter and more reserved kitten, she was often pushed to the side in the fame stakes due to Henry’s ridiculous and hilarious daily antics. “I know,” she thought “I’ll slip on these 3D glasses Mummy got in the post last week from her friend Amma…that will get me some air time.”

She was right you know.
