“I ♥ LA” – Angel & Lilly’s Save the Date Video

I don’t post that many videos on their own as I’ll be honest, it takes a pretty damn good video to keep my attention for more than a few seconds. Angel & Lilly’s Save the Date however is in a whole other league of radness. I love them!

The couple, who made their own video are already married in their eyes (although legally they are ‘domestic partners’ – stupid Californian same sex marriage laws) as last October the two of them headed down to city hall to do the paperwork followed by an In-N-Out burger!

“It was just the two of us” Angel told me. “After that was taken care of we went to In-N-Out for lunch, it’s sort of a Valentine’s Day tradition for us so it seemed like the perfect place to celebrate. Then we spent that night at a friend’s Halloween party in our zombie garb. Perfect end to a perfect day. The whole thing was very laid back, but we’re excited to get to celebrate with our friends and family this year.” They plan to do it all again on their anniversary this October and so made this video to invite all their friends & family to their pre-Halloween, circus/carnival themed wedding.

If this video is anything to go by their wedding is going to be seriously awesome! Thanks for sharing it girls!

Their Big Fat Leopard Print Lesbian Wedding

One of the things that really stood out in your survey responses was that a lot of you wanted more Rock n Roll same sex weddings. Well my dears, you ask and I deliver! I have actually been dying to feature Linsay & Amanda’s wedding for a while now but with wedding season being in full flow I have been a trifle busy! Patience is a virtue though my little kittens and I think you’ll realise that wait was worth it when you see these two kick ass chicks!

With people coming to their wedding from the UK and The States (Linsay is English and Amanda is from America) the couple decided on a kitsch Royal theme with red, white & blue as their colours (to reflect both flags) as well as for a bit of fun all round! “We just wanted to have fun with the theme but also sort of add a bit of camp irony to what was a fabulous lesbian wedding” Amanda told me. “I love the photo of the Fergie and Andrew choc tin! But seriously, it was a profoundly special day especially not only cause it was our wedding but because civil partnerships haven’t been  legal for that long and really lesbians need to find a new narrative when it comes to weddings. No More White Suits! You can both wear dresses and both be ‘the bride’ and balance it off well without either one having to feel overshadowed. And now Linz and I are wives for lives! How cool is that!?”

Both brides wore dresses by Candy Anthony – although it wasn’t planned! They both actually picked their dresses completely seperately.

Take THAT Prop 8!

I just wanted to interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to say WOOOOHOOOOO to all you guys in California where the ridiculous Prop 8 was overturned and deemed unconstitutional. To all my LGBT readers and friends, go out and celebraaaate!

Now go get the hell married and send me the photographs afterwards! Love you all.

ps pop by next week to see this rest of Lindz & Amanda’s ass kickin’ wedding!

Intimate.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Rock n Roll Bride favourite Tinywater, but Shay & Jenelle’s sweet and intimate little wedding has changed all that. What a perfect girlie afternoon it must have been.

Bowled Away

Jessica & Nik had a completely KICK ASS (and that had to be in capitals because I am literally shouting that as I write!) wedding at Northbowl in Philadelphia. The couple, who love all things rockabilly, kitsch and retro – certainly put all of themselves into their freakin’ awesome day. This is one of those weddings that is certainly going to do the rounds of Blog-Land so I am honoured that Amanda & Carina have elected Rock n Roll Bride to be the first blog to share them!
