There was one overriding theme for George and Jordanna’s big day – you’ve got three guesses for what it could possibly be!
“We were inspired by reading the blogs of other couples on Rock n Roll Bride and how they did exactly what they wanted,” explained Jordanna. “We wanted our day to reflect our love for each other, and our other true loves; our cats Conker and Boots! However it was important to us for it not to be tacky; we wanted it to be in a sophisticated and at times, humorous way.”
They paired an elegant, wintery colour scheme of red, burgundy and black with loads of nods to their favourite felines; from Jordanna’s Markus Lupfer cat print sandals and her handmade cat ear headband, to her cat embroidered veil (!) and cat pins in the buttonholes and bouquets. George rocked socks personalised with photos of their cats, and even the bridesmaid dresses were from a website called Pretty Kitty Fashion!
If you’re dreaming of pumpkin spice and snuggly knits then you are going to adore Kristen and Lloyd’s wedding. Almost all of their reception decor was thrifted, bought online and/ or put together by the couple themselves. They hand-painted a globe to use as their guest book (LOVE THIS!) and made magnolia leaf place cards as well as gold spray-painted dinosaur toys for some added fun and a nod to the groom’s love of Jurassic Park!
They met five years ago when Lloyd, from the UK, was in Orlando with his band. ” I pursued Lloyd and convinced my friends to go with me to the next bar so I could run into him again!” Kristen laughed. “He was only visiting from England but luckily I was able to convince him to stay!”
Their wedding was inspired by vintage elements with a touch of Hollywood glamour and a dash of Rock ‘n’ Roll. They also had lots of greenery which was also reflected in the wedding party’s outfits. “The inspiration for our wedding was our personalities and passions”, she continued. “I am studying biochemistry so we had test tube rack centrepieces filled with flowers, Lloyd loves Jurassic Park and travels around the world for work so we had travel themed decorations and our gold dinosaurs!”
Diana and Vlad’s wedding was an actual dreamland, and I don’t think you’re prepared for what your eyes are about to feast upon. They had three parts to their wedding and each was as incredible as the last: first, their gothic Romanian city hall wedding; a week later, their “Harry Potter in the mountains” themed reception; and finally an after-wedding photo session in Ireland, where they now live. It is just delicious from start to finish.
Their church service and civil bit took place a week before the main reception, giving guests a chance to enjoy a weekend in the mountains – it was important to Diana and Vlad to pay for their guests’ accommodation, so that they didn’t have to worry about their journey home which would have been at least two hours, if not more!
