What's not to love about this wedding? Amanda & Clint have been massive fans of vintage 1940's and 50's styling for as long as they care to remember, to what's a better style of wedding for them as this? Amanda's vintage reproduction dress is perfectly accompanied by her Groom in his traditional kilt (with a decidedly untraditional twist) and her Bridesmaids in their stunning black and red pin up halter style dresses. I am also loving their car, their polka dot themed reception and of course that fabulous cake...my favourite layer has got to be the 'tattoo design' layer...just hottness!

Las Vagas Showdown
July 1, 2009
Have you been eagerly sitting by your computer waiting for the next installment of Teneisha & Chris' crazy-gorgeous wedding extravaganza? I certainly have..every 5 minutes I've been checking my email to see if the rest of the photographs have been sent to me...sad? yes, yes I am.
Now if you thought their engagement shoot was to die for then you ain't seen nothing yet!
I'm actually going to stop gabbing on about it and hand straight over to the couple who have described their wedding and their idea of what makes a rock n roll wedding absolutely perfectly...
The objective for our wedding, besides getting married, was about two things. The first was a goal that every single person have a completely kick ass time, including ourselves, and the second being that we would do things our way, no questions asked. We solved the "having fun" issue pretty easily by getting married on a Saturday evening, in Las Vegas; with a premium open bar and an excellent ipod play list. We served sushi and had chocolate covered strawberries instead of cake at our reception and had an open invitation after-party with a bathtub full of beer and debauchery that lasted until 5am. We also encouraged people to get creative with the dress code, which produced a very colorful crowd.
I think that our Bride and Groom outfits helped to set the right mood as well. I wore a vintage inspired, Sherri Hill polka dotted blue/gold/silver dress with all bright red accessories that I either made myself or bought from independent artists on etsy.com. I had the dress shortened from ballroom to tea length, which everyone tried to talk me out of and I'm so glad I didn't listen! The groom wore crazy blue pants, suspenders, a fedora and an awesome bow tie that matched my dress perfectly.
You love this couple right? Yeah me too. Again, I can't thank Teneisha & Chris' and their wonderful photographer Holly Jones enough for sharing this amazing wedding with me!

I have something to say and it may be shocking to some of you...I don't 'get' Martha Stewart...what is they fascination? I'm just as crafty as the next geek but something about her repulses me just a little bit. Maybe it's because the first time I ever heard of her was when she went to jail (I'm in the UK, not Mars by the way) or because whenever I catch her on Wedding TV (yes I am that sad...) I feel inclined to run away. I mean, she's not very rock n roll is she?
However, I just saw this wedding on her ridiculously kitch (although it pains me to know it's not even in an ironic way) wedding website, and despite the source this wedding is so uber gorgeous that I have to share the love.
John & Lily married in Lily's parent's back garden which had great sentimental value for the couple. Lily's beautiful bouquet was made of bridal garden roses, dahlias, orchids, lily of the valley, jasmine, sweetpeas, and scented geranium, all tied together with a cute blue ribbon. She also ordered some custom Liberty fabric clutches for her Bridesmaids, each designed to fit the individual girl's personality.
Clicky here for more images and info, and let me know - am I the only wedding obsessive that doesn't love the Stewart?
Polka Dot Bride

When Leslie & Steve got married they decided to all kick it with their Converse trainers (that's Chucks to you guys in the States), even the Bride got in on the action, rocking her green trainers under her beyond awesome polka dot dress (I am still waiting to find out where she got it from, don't worry I will let you know when I do!) The theme was glorious green which really brightened up an otherwise cold winter wedding.
A Rose Amongst Thorns!
