A litte bit country, a little bit rock ‘n roll
Some people are die-hard techno fans or just love folksy rock, but my iPod’s got a little bit of everything. Similarly, I can fall in love with a homespun DIY wedding one week and an edgy punk party the next. I guess I like my wedding porn like I like my music: Eclectic. And this week, I just couldn’t choose between these two totally different weddings from uber-talented photographer Sarah Yates. So here’s one wedding that’s sweet farmland country, and another that’s all edgy Hollywood rock ‘n roll. Choose your poison. <!–more–>
First at bat: Joel and Ricci’s Rocker Glam San Diego Bash. This cool couple loves music, and their wedding at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego is a reflection of their passion for all things that rock. Like Ricci’s corseted, ruffly Betsy Johnson wedding dress.
Ricci’s her badass sparkly red shoes are by Christian Louboutin. The fabu feather fascinator comes from YJ Design on Etsy. And those layered necklaces? I don’t know who made them, but I know that Ricci’s wearing ‘em well.
LOVE the minimalist hanging flower arrangements for the ceremony, by the flower geniuses at Botanica in SD.
Below, what may very well be my favorite wedding photo ever.
Okay, did you get all the rock n’ roll partying out of your system? Good, because we’re taking it down a few notches and heading to the farm (well, actually the ranch at Rancho Santa Fe) for Emily and Eric’s Sweet White Countryside Wedding
Isn’t Emily an absolute vision in those sweet mary janes, the classic pearl jewels, and an elegant chignon with the veil placed below?
Emily’s lovely and ladylike wedding dress is by Modern Trousseau. The sunflower bouquets, old farmhouses, and weepy trees appear to have come straight from heaven. Or dreams.
The birdhouse, the tin pitchers, and the hand-lettered chalkboard signs are perfect complements to the wildly gorgeous white flowers that are just everywhere at this wedding. Check out that bedecked tree swing — what a stunning romantic vision! Beyond Inviting Couture is responsible for making this blooming country floral dream a reality.
