Ain’t no wedding like an eclectic wedding we have smidgen of Hawaii, some traditional Indian (specifically Gujarati) and a hint of Japan – all together it makes wedding awesome! And it is straight from the lens Jamie Zanotti Photography of The be-yoooo-ti-ful bride shared:
“Ken and I met back in February 2011. I am from outside of Philadelphia, PA, and was making my way across the country to try a new city and Ken had moved to Portland from Honolulu, HI, where he grew up.
Our first date was at Tea Chai Te, and we hit it off as we shared mint moroccan green tea and 2 hours of conversation. Things took off from there, and the following year, Ken proposed at Kelley Point in North Portland, representing how we came together in Portland from such distant origins just as the confluence of the rivers come together at Kelley Point.
It wasn’t long before we were preparing for our wedding. Ken is 1/2 Japanese and has been studying a Japanese style of flower arranging, called Ikebana, for 8 years. He, along with his sensei (teacher) and a few helpers, arranged all of the flowers and planned the set-up for our wedding all in the style of Ikebana. I am of Indian heritage and so the actual ceremony and dress was of traditional Gujarati (the ethnic group in India to which I belong) style. Building on this immersion of cultures, we decided to have Japanese food (sushi), Indian food (samosas and chaat), as well as American food (Pizza!) at the wedding.”

It’s about the old made new – it’s a renewal in Koh Samui *location envy sigh* and all this gorgeousness is straight out the lens of Cherry May Photography and the gorgeous couple are Ashley and Dominic.
We’ll hand over to the born again bride, Ashley and let her share her re-wedding experience:
My dress was a wedding dress from Monsoon, which was an unworn wedding dress on ebay! BARGAIN. I then had it altered to suit my style, changing up the back into a more racer back form and dropping the neckline. I added a broach at the back to pull it in and show my back a bit more. I then added a vintage wedding dress lace around the waist as a sash.
My headpiece I made myself from fake flowers I bought from a lovely florist, local to me.
Of course I did my own hair and makeup.
Dom wore some skinny chinos I bought him and a lovely Nautica shirt I bought him. I thought he looked very handsome and comfortable. I didn’t want it to be too contrived. It all was so lovely and perfect.
And… not only did she make her own flower crown, this resourceful Mrs (well she is a make up Artist – check her out! Primp Powder Pout did her own beautiful face she shared: I used : Benefit ‘they’re real’ mascara and bareminerals mineral veil as well with barryM eyeliner and maybelline eyeshadow. I also used Enrapture Totem styler on my hair
So, this is shutter candy 2.0! Enjoy the gorgeous vowel renew shutter candy right here and right now!See Some More Post a comment (3)
Yo y’all it is handkerchiefs at the ready for the first Beyond Beyond wedding of the year *muffled sob*
So, who are the lovely couple – who are the gorgeous nuptial devils cummin atcha via the screen? Well the drool-some twosome and the drool worthy day is that of Linnea and Bryce. And, of course as ever being shutter candy fiends we are suitably transfixed by the beautiful images lensed by Seattle Based Photographer, Sahara Coleman.
This summer I had the privilege to photograph a truly beautiful wedding in my own home town on Whidbey Island. I have to admit, this was one of those weddings that I found myself getting nervous and sick over.
The weather had been terrible in the week leading up to that day, the bride’s hair person hadn’t shown up yet, and the groom was watching the soccer game up until five minutes before it was time for us to start portraits. I thought for sure I had a challenging day ahead of me…I’ve never been so pleased to be so wrong in my life.
The thing about these two amazing people is that they are the most laid back, and genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure meeting. As long as they were together, it didn’t matter what happened that day, or how anything worked out (this quickly became evident to me when Linnea allowed Bryce to ROW her to the ceremony in a small wooden boat a quarter mile across the water “if we fall in, then we fall in”). I could only hope to find a love like that some day. The wedding took place on Whidbey Island, WA. It couldn’t have been more perfect.
With those lovely words it’s time for you to be transported to a lovely wedding! Let shutter candy begin!See Some More Post a comment (5)
Wedding time – it’s that moment where only the finest pixels will do and we hope that you like, no scratch that, love these from the wedding of Sarah and Joe, lensed by the magnificent Vancouver wedding photographers, Love Out Loud Studios; and theirs is a love that was all about geographical changes as Joe relocated from the UK to be with the one he loves.
Can we please get a collective ‘Awwwwww’.
Sarah and Joe had a had a DIY inspired back-yard wedding that overflowed with colour and charm. The full glory of this wedding has been artfully ensnared by the guys Love Out Loud Studios: a husband and wife team (we always get happy at couples shooting couples – not in a Natural Born Killers kind of way, that would be wrong we mean the photographic way) ; who blur the lines (but not like Mr. Thicke) between Photojournalism and Fine Art – it’s all about photographs that ooze beauty and feeling.
Time to kick back and relax and dive into a wedding that is shutter candy personified.
