Katie + Joe: A Rock ‘n Roll Arkansas Wedding by Liz Chrisman
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Watch out!  Katie and Joe’s rock ‘n roll real wedding is one for the books. These two meant business when they set out to plan a retro-inspired event featuring polka-dot everything (Katie’s favorite) and Joe’s perfectly suited, graphic design paper goods.  The pair poured themselves into planning and with the help of the team at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch, their dream wedding was brought to life! Photographer Liz Chrisman says, ‘Katie and Joe march to the beat of their own drum, and that was most definitely reflected in their off-beat, fun, rockabilly wedding.’  We couldn’t agree more!

Katie’s passion for polka dots started with the bridal party attire.  From the wedding dress to the bridesmaid’s frocks, all of their vintage-chic attire was sourced from Etsy designer Pixie Pocket.  As for the invites, the very talented groom whipped up these rock ‘n roll paper goods in black and red to set the tone.

Of the ceremony, Katie says, ‘A moment that will always be special to me was while we were saying our vows. All day long it was supposed to rain. The sky was gray and the sun was hidden. I was terrified that this would be the death of my dream outdoor wedding.  Of course the barn had planned an inside move if needed, but I was still nervous. The rain held off and when it finally started to drizzle while Joe and I were exchanging our vows under the arbor, the rain sprinkled in a perfect circle around us. The trees were shaking off collected drops in such a manner that it looked planned! After the trees cleared their branches, the sun jumped out from behind a cloud and shined right on us. It was seriously like something out of a movie.  Although we had dated for six years prior to our wedding, this was proof that rain or shine- we were meant to be together.’

Stephanie + Johnny: A Classic Red Wedding by Jen & Ashley Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy Monday, everyone! We’re starting off the week with a look at a classic crimson wedding between two West Point graduates. Stephanie and Johnny married in Hampton, Virginia on a rainy October day. Red rose floral arrangements and plenty of polished silver gave the day an Old Hollywood vibe, and we love that the bride was brave enough to pair a classic red lip with her fiery hair. Special thanks to Jen and Ashley Photography for sharing the day with us! You can see even more details (including close-ups of the bride’s stunning makeup) in our full gallery.

Stephanie and Johnny met as “plebes” at New York’s West Point Military Academy. Though they each had secret crushes on each other throughout that freshman year, it took living assignments on the same sophomore dorm hall to finally get the pair talking. For their first date, Johnny took Stephanie to a piano concert hosted by the school’s foreign language department. Academy rules prohibit PDA, but Johnny managed to sneak in a kiss at the end of the night.

Jennifer + Eric: A Rockabilly Glam Beach Wedding by Weber Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

We love, love, love when a couple brings their own unique flavor to an unexpected wedding locale. Case in point: Jennifer and Eric. From her glam peep toe pumps to his newsboy cap, it’s clear this Florida duo has a bit of a retro aesthetic. But instead of throwing a Rockabilly wedding in a park somewhere, they exchanged vows right on the beach—and we totally dig the results. Special thanks to Weber Photography for sharing the day with us! Scroll down for a bevvy of red wedding inspiration.

Jennifer and Eric’s love story begins in high school. They flirted in art class all through Eric’s senior year (Jennifer was a junior at the time), but never revealed their feelings. They lost touch for about a year after Eric graduated, but were able to pick things back up not long after that. “It was easy to start our friendship exactly where it left off,” says Jennifer. “After a few months and a couple of dates, we knew we had to be together.”

Sara + Daniel: A Ravishing Indian-Jewish Fusion Wedding by Nadia D. Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Fusion weddings have a special place in our hearts… The blending of two heritages always make for a unique and personal event and it’s so refreshing to revel in the color and creativity incorporated into the day. Sara is Indian American and Daniel is Jewish American, so the evening began with a traditional Jewish ceremony beneath a gorgeous chuppah: all parents joined the couple under the canopy, and the ketubah design evoked a feeling of Indian artwork. Nadia D. photographed every last detail of the dramatic event at Atlanta’s InterContinental Buckhead Hotel and we’re excited to share the bold and captivating imagery.

In a unique twist, Daniel’s niece and nephew sang the kiddush and motzi blessings before dinner in the magically transformed ballroom, replete with flowers in shades of pink, red and purple by Edge Design, and oversized, beaded lampshade centerpieces. But the highlight of the room had to be the white starlit dance floor – the LED lights embedded in the floor twinkled like stars. The most memorable moment of the evening: when Daniel performed a rap song titled “Fly Together” that he had written for Sara, describing their courtship, including their engagement at Lake Rabun, and declaring his undying love for her!
