A Bride in Boots

Oh Dan & Dayna you’ve made my day! What an awesome wedding and a fantastic story. I’ve been dying to share these all weekend! I knew this would be an awesome wedding in fact as soon a photographer Matthew told me that the bride was part of the Vaudeville Circus (you can see her in action here – far right in the white dress)

“I wanted to have a rock-n-roll wedding that felt like Dan and I had our hands all over” explained Dayna  “I spent a lot of time pouring over wedding blogs and getting inspiration from cool brides.  I picked themes that we both loved like reading, hence the book center pieces and framed quotes from our favorite authors, Fall and the month of October (the colors and flowers),  simple down home (and cheap!) mason jars as vases.  All of our music the entire day was hand picked and never ‘traditional’: wedding procession we had our friend play the ukulele, bridal march was Cat Powers “Sea of Love” (followed by The Honeydrippers “Sea of Love” for our first dance), our walk as husband and wife was Joey Ramone’s “Wonderful World”.  Our flower girls wore homemade tutu’s, leotards and ballet slippers. We had a drawing after dinner with silly gifts of our life so far (a DVD of the first movie we saw, a pint glass from the restaurant where we met, a dvd of “It’s a Wonderful Life” cuz we’re nerds and watch it every year…). It was a rockin’ day for sure!”

Fusion Video – Dry Lake Bed Engagement Session

The fabulous Chelsea Nicole  has just launched her new Fusion Video venture, offering videography to her lucky couples. She sent me this a-a-amazing example from Kory & Trent’s engagement session in a dry lake bed, Las Vegas, NV. Doesn’t the video really bring the images to life?

Hollywood Rock

Megan & Marcelo met at a punk rock bar in Hollywood… so naturally their wedding would have elements of rock too.  The day took place at the ube cool Marvimon in LA with the beautiful flowers being put together by Holly Flora. The bride wore a short hip wedding dress by Amsale and shoes by Gwen Stafani’s label, L.A.M.B. The groom looked similarly hot to rock in his skull themed accessories. All the music was hand picked and complimented by the couple’s favourite videos projected all night behind the dance floor.  It felt like The Rolling Stones, Bowie, Devo, Love and Rockets and Nick Cave all attended the bash as well!  The guests kept saying was that this wedding was just soooo Megan & Marcelo…and that is one the best compliments a couple can get.

Two Sides to the Story

Allison & Gabe’s wedding day started like every other – excitable, elegant, stylish and full of lurrrrve – then night fell and the chaos and fun of rock star proportions ensued! I love how the couple’s attire matches their mood – beginning of the day – excited, demure and classy (I adore Allison’s simple dress which she got on sale in Bloomingdale’s),  end of the night – ruffled and rocking the hell out (and again I adore Allison’s dress – which she actually made herself – she bought a basic tutu from Etsy but the rest was all her own work!) In fact it wasn’t just the bride who changed – the whole wedding party got changed (the women from pastels into black ruffles – again make by the bride from tutu’s found on Etsy – and the men into dinner suits) for the massive party at the end of the night!
