Josie & Nic’s San Francisco Soiree

Josie & Nic wanted their wedding to be for them and what they wanted – screw traditions! The couple, who own a rockabilly store in Berkley, California decided to close the shop for the day (they hung up hand drawn signs to warn customers they were closed as they were getting married!) and get ready together in their own environment – something they had built up together.

The ceremony took place at  Morcom Rose Garden in Piedmont and Josie looked stunning in her Stephanie James Couture dress. Once again throwing tradition out the window, the ceremony consisted of a  small gathering of their very closest friends, who were each called up to the “alter” when they were ready  in order to start the ceremony.  Josie & Nic chose the lyrics of “The New Patron Saints and Angels” by AFI to be read in the ceremony instead of traditional vows.

After the ceremony, they both jumped into their 1957 Chevy and headed over to their reception at the Hotel California in San Francisco. Their friends and family even decorated their car for the ride! Finally, the whole vibe of the day was a DIY and personal one. The couple designed all of their invitations, flags and other all the reception decor, and the flowers were put together by Josie and her family.

Fabulous 50’s & Multi-Coloured Tulle

As soon as a saw Catherine & Kev’s fabulous 50’s style wedding, my attention was drawn to one thing – that amazing Stephanie James Couture dress! I have been a superfan of the designer ever since I found and fell in love with this amazing multi-coloured tulle creation and OMG Catherine’s had a similar underskirt. She too fell in love with this dress when I featured in a while ago. “My maid of honour, Kirree, found a dress on Rock n Roll Bride made by Stephanie James Couture” Catherine explained. “It was the ‘Lustful’ or ‘Tame Fifi’ dress you featured a while back, as soon as she sent me a link to the pictures I knew that was the dress I needed to get married in! I quickly got in touch with Stephanie and asked if she could make me a similar version and she said yes!”

Punk Rockabilly Bridal Shoot

You are going to explode with excitement over this incredible bridal shoot…I did! Just brace yourselves for some serious awesome.

The shoot was put together by Denver based This Modern Life Photo to inspire brides to think outside the box with their bridal shoots…and boy have they done that!? The team were keen to tell me all about their vision:

“Brides, we can create a custom styled shoot like this one for you and your fiance or husband either before or after the wedding using the same creative team. Not into Rock and Roll styling? Not a problem. Our team will  work with you to create your very own vision, romantic and dreamy?, vintagey and funky?, rustic natural? Whatever your heart desires, this creative team can create!”

Sissy Wish

I hadn’t planned on another blog post today but I couldn’t resist sharing these stunning images right this second! Siri is a singer/songwriter…and as it turns out, quite the model too. Just check out this stunning dress made for her by Stephanie James Couture for her upcoming tour.

I thought she needed something special for her 2009 US tour, so I went with the Fifi dress with a draped bodice and puffy, pleated sleeves…she loves 80’s fashions, so I did my best SJC with an 80’s spin!! It looked amazing on her. My friend and I went up to Hollywood to make sure it fit her and did a mini photoshoot while we were at it!!

Soft Hues

Don’t judge me ok? I should be in bed (for those of your following me on Twitter you will have no doubt seen the regular updates about my flu!) but I have a compulsion to blog that can not be stopped…

Lisa Rigby shot this outdoor wedding last week and I can’t get enough of the lovely pastel shades. I’m not normally one for subtlety (hello? my hair is pink) but the soft hues of her blue Stephanie James Couture dress coupled with her stunning bouquet and birdcage veil are undeniably gorgeous. The wedding ceremony actually took place at Mount Auburn Cemetery.
