Vintage Circus Wedding at Home

If you’ve got yourself the new issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine, then Devon and Isaac may look familiar because we featured their Tropical Cosmic Wonderland wedding in Mexico inside. Choosing to have a destination wedding did mean that many of their loved ones couldn’t attend though, so they decided to have a second reception at home. They hosted it in their own property, The Real Magic House, which they also hire out for events. The day had a vintage circus theme and guests were encouraged to dress the part… which they did!

“Isaac and I have always loved colour, the arts and festivals”, began the bride. “We definitely have a flair for the unusual and wanted to make sure that our wedding reflected our passion for creativity and unique aesthetics.”

If Marie Antoinette Had a Picnic Wedding at the Beach

Emma and Will rented a house for their June wedding and the bride’s father married them on the beach. Their friends sang to them during ceremony, Emma’s niece was their flower girl and she choose sequin dresses for the bridal party because she wanted everybody to sparkle!

The bride has a deep fascination with French history and style but getting married in French chateau was not an option so they replicated the look in Maine. “The theme started as Marie Antoinette goes on a picnic, so pale pink, French blue and gold”, Emma wrote. “I collected French porcelain and planned out all the details. Over time we added in more details like cherry blossoms that symbolise hope for us, and we incorporated nautical touches with lobster cookies and oyster shell name cards.”

Nerdy Pop Culture Wedding in Las Vegas

Launa and Josh wanted an October wedding in Las Vegas with alternative details that referenced their favourite games, movies and TV shows. The bride chose a red sequin 50s inspired dress from FairyGothMother with matching Converse and carried a paper flower bouquet made by Paper Bouquets from Harry Potter pages to represent her, comic pages to represent Josh and Magic the Gathering cards to represent them together.

“We wanted a blend of vintage meets classic Vegas for our wedding and to add our own nerdy touches”, Launa said. “I had four bridesmaids all in a colour from each Hogwarts house, we had a reading of Joey’s speech from Monica and Chandler’s wedding and a poem about aliens called The Day the Saucers Came by Neil Gaiman. Our vows were the vows from the Corpse Bride with a Game of Thrones reference thrown in at the end and we did a candle lighting of a Jack and Sally candle from Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Pretty in Pink Meets Elvis Inspired Nashville Wedding

Amy and Ashley had a $5,000 budget for their Nashville wedding which meant they wanted something low key, with minimal fuss or excessive spending. They chose Rhinestone Wedding Chapel for their Elvis-led ceremony and had a party afterwards at an Italian restaurant.

“We knew we didn’t want a traditional wedding, plus there’s the whole pandemic aspect to deal with”, Amy told us. “Our wedding needed to be small, intimate and most of all FUN!”

“My dad was an Elvis impersonator and I have always loved Elvis so we got the idea to have ‘Elvis’ marry us in a simple but kick ass ceremony that was totally unique to us. We didn’t want to spend a ton of money and chose to focus on having a core group of people accompany us to Nashville and thankfully my best friend is also a bomb photographer so we all met up on a Thursday and we pulled the trigger on a Friday at The Rhinestone Wedding Chapel.”

Retro & Relaxed Brewery Wedding with Food Trucks & Dinosaurs

Leah and Jarvis designed every element of their vintage-inspired day to suit them as a couple. From the sweetest ceremony in the gorgeous church to the cocktail-style reception at Moondog Brewery with lots of dancing, a pizza truck and gelato. There was even a dinosaur cake-topper that Leah made a little veil and garter for!

The day kicked off with a traditional catholic ceremony at Saint Peter’s Catholic Church. “As much as I wanted just a fun party atmosphere, I also wanted the grand traditional church wedding”, Leah told us. “I knew getting married in a church would be very traditional but I was so excited when I realised I got to sit off to the side on fancy chairs just like the royals who I love. The church has an amazing organ on the back wall so of course we had to make use of it. We opted for Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis to walk down the aisle to. I completely forgot to look at Jarvis until I got to the end and realised why I was there but once I was there everything was easy. We made jokes to each other, reminded each other to stick our thumbs down so that they don’t look fat on camera and even put the ring on the wrong hand. Great fun really!”

A Classic, Vintage Inspired Backyard Wedding on Halloween

Although they chose Halloween night as their wedding date, Kalie and Mike didn’t want a themed wedding. Although they love everything about the day, they wanted to find a way to make Halloween classy and beautiful. The evening-only celebration was held in the bride’s mother’s back garden.

The wedding began with the couple having a ‘first look’ and then doing their photos before the ceremony. Not only did this mean they weren’t worrying about losing light, but they could get rid of those pre-ceremony jitters beforehand. “We chose to do a first look and I highly recommend it”, the bride told us. “It gave us a second to take it in and have a moment. It was super special.”
