Aaron & Jay’s Sushi-Loving Rock n Roll Wedding

When I read the email that Aaron & Jay send to their photographer when they enquired about her shooting their wedding I was smitten. I wonder why huh?!

“I love your photos and would be thrilled if you could shoot our wedding on July 17th of this year. We are planning a super fun, little bit retro and a little bit country wild and crazy with a whole lot of DIY elements party here in Vancouver. ps. I found you through Rock n Roll Bride (the best wedding blog in the world).”

Yeah…flattery really will get you everywhere. Aaron & Jay’s wedding is also completely stupendously rad …always helps when you want to get your wedding featured on these here pages!

The couple were married outside The Old Hastings Mill Store, which was one of the only buildings in Vancouver to survive the Great Fire of 1886. It is now located near Jericho Beach in Kitsilano.  They were married with a view of the harbour, the boats and the mountains – bliss. For their reception they headed to Cambrian Hall.

The couple’s very first date was at Nikkyo Sushi on Main Street in Vancouver which just happened to be around the corner from their reception venue. So, for some fun wedding day pictures, the couple and their photographer Lisa headed out to have some sushi & beer. The couple also served sushi from Nikkyo Sushi at their reception!

Aaron wore a custom made dress from Dolly Couture and accessories from Farmer’s Daughter on Etsy. To compliment her outfit, her bridesmaids wore polkadot 1950s style dresses and they all had different coloured petticoats underneath. How gorgeous is that?!

Dramatically Beautiful

I love how many UK weddings I’ve been featuring recently. It’s not just my American friends who have rockin’ weddings anymore. Go team GB!

Gemma & Liam’s super stylish, vintage-inspired wedding took place at the moody and dramatic venue of the 13th century George Vaults, Rochester. Just from seeing Gemma’s incredible Fur Coat No Knickers dress and Irregular Choice shoes I knew their wedding would be a beaut. Enjoy these beautiful images people!

Young, Broke and in Love

Shannon & Jayson could only afford to book their photographer to shoot an hour of their wedding but they certainly made the most of it!

The couple pulled together their retro, 1950s vibe with very little money. Shannon wore a dress and pink petticoat that she found in a vintage boutique and the coolest thing ever? Their rings were from an arcade. Oh how cute. These two are clearly young, broke and in love…In fact Alley told me that you’d be more likely to catch this pair at a protest for something they believe in then at the mall. Someone should make a movie about them or something.

Uniquely Chic

Amanda & Nick has a super chic, totally personal, 1950’s inspired wedding. From Amanda’s cute polka dot dress from Unique Vintage to the beautiful retro style photography by Made u Look Photography (which even included one roll of black & white film from an old film camera – remember those!?) the whole day ooooozes authentic, rockabilly charm.  The rest of the wedding party’s clothing came from Daddyo’s and Stop Staring Clothing and everyone got pumped and ready for the big day by listening to classic rock n roll music. I just know you’re going to love it!

Emotional & Theatrical

Classy, elegant, retro. These are the words that came to me as soon as I saw Rebecca & Justin’s 1950s inspired engagement session. The shoot took place at The Ritz Ybor in downtown Tampa, a venue which perfectly reflected photographer Alicia’s vision for the session. Rebecca’s polka dot dress was from PinUp Girl Clothing and Justin looked the part in his trilby hat (which retails at $75 but he picked up for $6!) and waistcoat combo.

Rustic Railroad

Katie & Tim’s rustic railroad wedding is totally adorable and you are going to love these. I am crazy about Katie’s red tipped, polka-dotty cute tea dress (by Stephanie James Couture), their colour coordinated cupcakes and her faux flower and red feather bouquet (also made by Stephanie James Couture.) Swoooooonworthy indeed
