Unposed, super creative, & totally inclusive: here’s why this Chicago wedding photographer is a dream team
When we first met Roni and David, the tattooed husband and wife team at Roni Rose Photography, we were ENTHRALLED. Their style, their creative expression, the unposed and unstuffy compositions, and their commitment to embracing offbeat aesthetics was clearly such a match for our readers. We went all ga-ga over their portfolio and knew it was time to connect them with you all.
Amanda and Melody tied the knot after almost ten years of being together. Melody is an artist so aesthetics were key. They chose a geode theme and iridescent color scheme for the wedding details and decor. Melody brought her creative touches to the handmade bow ties, boutonnieres and bouquets made from Palo Santo and colorful gem stones, and elaborate table settings featuring black candle sticks, geodes, and photos of the couple. They even built their own geode-like backdrop for the photo booth and a friend created a fabulous geode cake.
Celebrating the anniversary of Ziggy Stardust with this glam rock David Bowie-inspired wedding inspiration
David Bowie’s iconic concept album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” was released 47(!) year ago on June 16, 1972, so it was more than fitting to showcase this amazing glam rock wedding inspiration right around the anniversary. The bride, groom, and their best crew were all in a band so they rocked their amazing outfits with metallics, velvet, fringe, tassels, faux fur, and tinsel.
Don’t miss the epic florals, star-shaped EVERYTHING, velvet suits, the bride’s jumpsuit, and the cake that any Bowie fan would love…
