If you weren’t expecting to see a wedding today where the bride looks like a straight-up SUPERMODEL then, dear reader, you were very wrong. There is something so magically simple yet bad-freakin’-ass about this wedding. Chloe and CJ didn’t go overboard on the extras or the details, the little touches were minimal but the perfect amount of edgy and personalised. I mean they created custom enamel pins for their wedding favours for goodness sake. ALL the wedding goals coming at ya…
They were married in October at Growing Hope Market Place. a farmer’s market in Ypsilanti, Michigan, while a restaurant across the street was transformed into the perfect spot for the reception. “I have always been a fan of Rock n Roll Bride and good old fashioned staying true to ourselves”, began Chloe. “All the kick ass couples you feature inspired us! Seeing other couples pave the way gave us the push we needed to really make our wedding feel like it was for US and not the guests.”
I hope you’re ready for some Monday morning feels because Lori and Lach’s wedding has got ALL THE EMOTIONS. They were married in Melbourne in June (on the same weekend they first met in real life after chatting for months on MySpace!) at The Budgie Smuggler, a super cool, industrial-style warehouse event and gallery space.
They wanted to make the day feel as much like ‘them’ as possible so that meant great food, a casual atmosphere and no extra fuss. “It was so important for our day to be about us with our closest family and friends joining us for the celebration”, said the bride. “We decided against a lot of the norms of wedding planning, we saw each other before the ceremony and we didn’t have a sit down meal. I didn’t wear a veil and we were two of the last people to leave the night – it was so important to us to enjoy the day for as long as humanly possible!”
There’s a special place in Lora and James’s hearts for December 21st as it’s the date James officially asked Lora out, and four years later on that same day he proposed. So of course it had to be their wedding day, too! They eloped on their fifth anniversary and married in Cornwall. The whole day was about them just being together and really feeling the love. Also there was a cat at their wedding, which we know you will just love!
There wasn’t a particular theme, said Lora, “But I do love turquoise, so I made sure we were both wearing some! We both absolutely love Cornwall, so when we decided to elope we knew exactly where we’d be heading. As soon as we found Lower Barns, we knew it was the venue for us! We’ve been to Glastonbury Festival for the last five years, and from the photos we saw of Lower Barns we knew it would have a similar magical, colourful, relaxed atmosphere that we love, but in the most high-end, five star way imaginable (with no mud in sight). It certainly didn’t feel like the end of December being surrounded by venue owners Janie’s beautiful styling and Mike’s awesome prop constructions!”
