Dayna and Jason's Colorado wedding had so much going for it: Dayna's short and sweet dress, Jason's Boston tie, their walk down the aisle together, the amphitheater setting with a view we can't even handle right now, and GRATUITOUS DOGGY SHOTS! This pooch is walking down the aisle, front-and-center at the ceremony, and then falling asleep in the middle. We are bowled over with cuteness. Then it's on to the reception where there's carb-loading and robin's egg centerpieces.

We have long been admirers of LA-based Pixie Vision's amazing photographic style and magical touch in working with the most KICK-ASS clients in the known world. Need proof? You might remember this steampunk ocotopus deliciousness or this fabulous explosion of steampunk goodness. We basically want to crawl into every shot and make a home.
All ya'll in the Northeast U.S. (or able to get there), check this out: Wed Altered (the co-op of independent wedding dress and accessory designers who all have a focus on ethical company philosophies), is having their pop-up boutique SOON. If you are on the hunt for sustainable and ethically-produced accessories, dresses, bridesmaid dresses, headpieces, veils, and more, this is totally your show.
Leah and Heather were married on June 7th at Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope, PA, where the pair had one of their first dates and countless date nights after. Leah designed the place cards, table numbers, her bouquet, Heather's boutonniere, and the CD favors. But the best silver lining moment came when the intense storm going on caused a blackout at the reception!
Kim and Heather are lovers of Wonder Woman and Xena (as already evidenced by amazing ink!), but their Xena/Wonder Woman cake made by Heather herself… well, takes the cake (sad trombone). But seriously: the Greenville Children's Museum venue in Greenville, SC, the two dresses, the sword cake cutting, the comic postcard guest book… it's all a product of super powers, I'm sure of it.
With the number of emotional photos at this wedding (happy ceremony tears, family hugging tears, dance floor cheers, and belly laughs), I'm secretly hoping to catch you at work and make you sniffle at your desk. Muhaha!
You guys in the Northeast might already know about Wed Altered, the co-op of independent wedding dress and accessory designers who all have a focus on ethical company philosophies. Their first pop-up boutique happened last April in New York City. We're talking a big set-up of tons of accessories, dresses, bridesmaid dresses, headpieces, veils, and more, all from awesomely talented indie designers, that you can totally buy right there on the spot.
Susanna and Ricki, aka Kitten and Lou, are a drag king and a burlesque queen in lurve. After meeting on stage and falling in love while performing in an Atomic Bombshells revue, they have become the world's showbusiest couple. Since Washington passed Referendum 74, they knew it was time to get hitched… in some serious style. A little camp, a lot of glam, and a hell of a lot of performances, it is a confetti and balloon-festooned show not to be missed.
