Holy hell how amazing is this shot just submitted to the Offbeat Bride photo pool? From the funky purple boots to the well-timed gust of wind and the fact that this is one HAWT couple… everything is amazing about this…

Jaleen, the bride that just gave us a fashion-gasm, described her wedding style perfectly via a conversation with her mother:

Mom: Tell me your kidding about the boots.
Jaleen:
Mom:
Jaleen: Mom, I promise, I have good judgement!

Jaleen: And this dress does lots of things that I usually hate, but I promise it works
Mom:
Jaleen: It's edgy, I'll give you that. It's risky. It's fashion-y. A designer people have heard of made it. And I swear it's been well-vetted and well-advised.
Mom: Fashion can still be fashion and not be good.
Jaleen: Mom! It's fine.
Mom: So it sounds like you've already…did you buy this dress already?
Jaleen: Yes.

I don't know where you can get those boots, I don't know who made that dress, I don't know where she found such an adorable groom, but what I do know is that you can check out more photos from Jaleen and Andrew's wedding over here.

  1. Ummm, the boots are Fluevogs and they are called Hildegard's. Unfortunately we don't make them any more ladies and ladies. Actually the purple were limited edition so she is a very lucky lady. And gorgeous to boot. What an amazing outfit.

  2. OMG! It's Jaleen and Andrew! I first ran across them when they lived next to Halcyon and Tassy…. They used to show up in some of Halcyon's photo stream. Supercute and sexy smart couple. Those BOOTS!

  3. I'm not normally an ecru kinda gal but that looks pretty cool, especially with that purple.
    Ecru? Mushroom? Putty? Not sure what to call it, but it's an interesting divergence from the norm either way.

  4. Outrageously wonderful photographer!!! Beautiful wedding, each and every part.

  5. Ohmygosh! I'm so excited to see this here! Aw yay. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! The dress is by Ivan Grundahl, who I didn't know before finding this dress—but I do now. I submitted a profile, so hopefully there will be more info up for anyone who's curious! ­čśÇ

  6. whoa weird! hahaha hi!!
    tassy was supposed to have been at this party! but had to cancel at the last minute. what a small internet!

  7. Monika knows these well! She helped talk me into these fantastic boots, and I owe her much gratitude. i AM lucky!! super limited edition and there they were still in my size…magic. –Monika, I just saw your photos, they are GORGEOUS and your boots are insane!!! wow! congrats. good work. yay!!

  8. Crikey! That is one amazing wedding ensemble! I'd give anything to find something that cool for my wedding!

  9. Jaleen, you look amazing !! That DRESS!! The boots are pretty darn cool too *wink*. Can't wait to hear about all the details….

  10. Absolutely astonishing! All wedding partu were extremely gorgeous. The bride seems to be a dancer or from a circus performer, she is very expressive and flexible. Beautiful. Very good taste!

  11. Love the party, love the ensemble and I LOVE the circusey aspects. I'd love to read the write up for this wedding.

    (I think I recognize one of your guest doing hand-balancing in the photobooth, is that Katie Kubitskey who worked for Circus of the Kids?)

  12. gasping for air… that dress… those boots! purrrr fect! What a wonderful idea! I LOVE IT!

  13. I am absolutely in love with this set of photos. Her dress, her boots, her flowers! She had acrobats at her wedding? awesome!

  14. a dutch designer named ivan grundahl—it's not a wedding dress, per se, and this dress was from a few collections ago and i can't find a picture of it anywhere so i'm not sure when. also, the little shiny shrug bit is separate—i made that myself. (thank you, britex!!)

  15. more small internet world! haha yes, and that's her sister emily!! i worked for circus of the kids the summer before last. the blond guy, jamie, was on that staff too. amazing!

  16. Holy cow! Amazing venue, dress, entertainment – it looks that was one great party, awesome, just awesome!

  17. I agree. I need to read the writeup from this wedding! Not only is it beautiful, but it looks like everyone is having the best time and celebrating. I want to hear all the details! Congrats Jaleen — I'm officially jealous.

  18. Ohh, I have a pair of those boots! So exciting to see them in a wedding outfit. I love them like cake.

  19. Jaleen,

    How did you find the dress? I know now it is Ivon Grundhal but where…online or at a store. I love this style of dress and I can't seem to find a way to purchase or try on any of his dresses. Any suggestions?

    • i found my dress by total chance at a boutique (with no website) called 'chic' in rockridge,a neighborhood in oakland, CA. honestly, it was just luck! i wish i could be more helpful, but finding him online IS really hard. bah! sorry!!
