Swimming, Jumping, Trashing

Proper trash the dress still kinda scares me. Don’t get me wrong I love the results but I’d still be so scared of getting into a lake in my dress!

Newlywed Mindy has allayed my fears a little bit, you never know, maybe I would get into a lake in my dress!
We did it next to and under a road near my house and finished off with me getting in the lake down the street just as the sun was setting over the mountains. It was pretty much the most fun thing I have ever done and I wish I could trash my dress every day! (I actually could do it again because I washed it in the bathtub, picked the lake weeds out of the skirt, and it ended up being as good as new!)

Ridiculous Talent

So I’m about to head of to brave the London tube strike (grr!) to meet some of the most ridiculously talented photographers and vendors that the UK wedding ‘scene’ has to offer. I am rather excited about having a good old girlie gossip over one too many cocktails! 

So to keep you entertained until I return, check out this pretty darn gorgeous set by Holy Holy Matrimony, and if you haven’t already then enter the contest!

See you tomorrow you gorgeous creatures…

Susan and Scheffer Ely’s Camp-Out Rock Star Fest!

I have been waiting for what seems like forever to share these with you and I am so over-the-top excited that I now get to. This may actually be one of my new favourite weddings!

Susan and Scheffer Ely (they already sound like rock stars!) got married at a property outside of the town of Mariposa (which is on the way to Yosemite).  The couple did tons of work on the property and totally DIY’ed the lot.  They did all of the adorable flowers in the trees, made the chandeliers over the dining area out of Manzanita branches and they even constructed a flame burning giant flower sculptures that decorated the pool area! They also had a self-portrait photo area where guests could dress up in costumes and take their photo.  

 

Most of the guests camped out on the property for the weekend, and the little tent in the pictures is the “honeymoon tent” that the couple stayed in the night of the wedding (aww!)

The large Moroccan wedding tent was a friends and the smaller one we bought directly from India and shipped over.  Susan has kindly said that anyone in Northern CA can contact her to rent it! (if you’re interested drop me an email and I will pass on her details to you)

 

Susan’s dress was from Jeremy’s in SF – a store that sells high end samples.  She didn’t want a traditional dress so she shopped in stores that had more cocktail dresses, dresses for formal events kind of a thing (Susan will be getting back to me with the make of the dress soon but I just had to get these up right now!) She also made her beautiful hairpiece herself from a gorgeous piece of lace put together with some “feathery poofs from a silly accessories store
Susan’s make up was done by Tracy Murphy.  Susan says
I think my exact words might have been make me look “rock and roll”!! 

 

Mission accomplished don’t we think?! I hope you guys love these as much as I do!

A Huge thank you to Susan for sending me all this info and to photographers Judy & Heidi of  Gertrude & Mabel Photography for sending me the images.
