Photography Contest

OK...by now you should now that I have a major crush on Feather Love Photography and I'm sorry if you are sick of me posting about Noa but I just HAD to post this. It's for your own good! Noa is having a contest for FREE...yes, free people!...wedding photography. Here is the catch - you have to be getting married ASAP! Oh and having an offbeat/indie/boho/green wedding might help too. Go here for details!

The {down} Hills Wedding

Noa of Feather Love Photography ended up at a certain fake-celebrity couple's wedding / cocktail reception this past weekend. The photos are incredible (would we expect anything less from Noa?) and I'm sure the music was rockin' (The Flashdance, anyone?). Too bad this certain celebuDON'T only wanted their precious paparazzi photogs there and asked Noa to leave (I'm sure this relationship is based purely on love and not on fame and money at all, folks). Well, Noa's photos (you ARE an artist, Noa!) are better than any paparazzi pictures I'm sure so it's their loss.

Mmmm....cake by Sweet Gems
I may have a mini-crush on Michael Antonia -
LOVE the candid guest shots!
This makes me like Perez Hilton SO much more!
Oh, yeah...and the couple...

New Name

So Veiled Vows is no longer as "veiled" as I had hoped it would be when I first started blogging. Yes, it is true that I have a big mouth and like to torture people by saying "I have this wedding blog but you can't see it, ha ha!" and then they go out and find said wedding blog (dang my sneaky friends!). So I need a new name and I need your help in picking one out. Paper Plate Bride? I Heart Feathers and Fairy Tents? Cigarettes and Wedding Cake (ah, I don't smoke anymore but I do love this photo...that must have been a good night)? Leave me a comment and tell me what you think! :)

One Love Photo

Fairy tent, mason jar lights and friends around a campfire at my wedding? Yes, yes and hell yes.

PS: Have you noticed that I enjoy sitting on the ground? I'm sure civilized people like chairs and all but if I had it my way everyone would be sitting on blankets with mismatched pillows.

More Bango and Sarah

Banjo and Sarah rockin' out like the rock stars they are. I'm pretty sure MangoRED only shoots attractive people.

Banjo and Sarah

Noa knows about my love for boho/hippie sh*t and sent this wedding from MangoRED my way. That bride is a dream and her veil is phenomenal.

Zola and Derick

There were two Feather Love contest winners. I am just crazy about how Zola and Derick's engagement shoot turned out. They are so cute and have a rad house and a rad puppy!
This picture makes me wish Bill and I had kissed in our shoot...just once.
I love the Hitchcock-y feel of this one!

You guys wanna come over for a record party?

Our Feather Love Engagement Session

I am thrilled to finally be able to share with you the results of our winning this contest! Our session with Noa of Feather Love Photography was so much fun. These photos are EXACTLY what we wanted and look even more incredible than I could ever have imagined. We were going for a vintage / French new wave kind of feel and Noa captured it perfectly!

Noa has revamped her whole website and blog. The portfolio and the soundtrack are both so dreamy. Seriously, do yourself and favor and spend some time in there!

Ruby Feather

I'm taking a cue from $10,000 and getting read to make some bouts! And I'm not talking roller derby. So far I have purchased some French chicken feathers (they're gorgeous, I swear) and some pearly leaves. I know I have a lot of time to start projects but I'm really excited to start this one (especially since I'm not using real flowers and nothing will die). I just need to find some more sprigs of silk flowers (any suggestions?). I had an idea in my head of what I wanted them to look like and then I saw these beauts from Ruby Feather. They are exactly what I had in mind!

Anyone else make their own bouts?

Real Wedding: Charlotte and Andy

I am a wee bit obsessed with this wedding. Pretty much because every idea I have ever had Charlotte executed with such style and grace. I love the woodsy, New England, at home feel (it just so happens we're getting married at a woodsy, New England home as well) and all the personal touches that Charlotte, Andy, along with their friends and family, made on their day.

Mom helped make all the bouquets

The bride wore her mother's 70s wedding dress and her ballet slippers

Amazing dessert table and grocery store wedding cake (love it!)

Woods cathedral and dance floor

Every party needs a pinata and a bicycle getaway

Love the romantic, "midsummer night's" glow and, of course, sparklers!
