Hannah + Alex

I’ve been a big fan of Steep Street for quite some time now, so I’m absolutely thrilled about featuring Hannah and Alex’s wedding today on Once Wed. Kelty, the ridiculous talent behind Steep Street, was kind enough to send over a ton of gorgeous images for the feature as well as a few details behind their day…

Hannah and Alex have known each other since childhood and lived in the same neighborhood, swam in the same pool and went to the same elementary school! They were married beneath the very oak tree they played under as children. The wedding was a casual an wonderful experience… both of them stood inside hoola hoops under the tree as a dear friend read them their self-written vows inside the cover of a favorite Doctor Seuss book. The reception was totally casual and hilarious… everyone loved the pinatas and small details, as well as the HUGE candy table spread (most of which they brought back from a summer trip to Spain), multi-flavored cupcakes and a cake made by Alex’s mom with Hannah and Alex figurines on top.  Each table was littered with multi-colored dahlias, vintage tin toys, and childrens games.

As a wedding favor, they recorded three of their favorite song covers (doing all the cheesy instrumentals and vocals themselves!) and burned cds for the guests, using my 8 different designs as simple slip covers for the music. They’re so awesome! We entitled the cds “Faux Real”, to give a sense of their playfulness in general, a hint what the wedding would be like, and a way to describe the art pieces that they’re living in together…. as other-worldly as their own lives!

To see the rest of this amazing wedding, check out the fabulous Steep Street blog later today. Kelty has the full post coming up plus all their album covers which are ridiculous gorgeous!

P.S. – We’re doing a soft launch of our vendor guide on Monday…finally. We’ve got some great vendors already on board with many more on the way. Have a great weekend!!

    As a redhead myself, I would love to know where she got that dress. Green is the perfect color for redheads!

    Talk about Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind! Beautiful art work with the CD covers and the wedding decor itself :) And of course the bride was stunning no less!

    Such a fantasy! I blog about my wedding, which was traditional, yet artful by design.

    However, I cannot help but dream that I would have looked just as perfect as a redhead as in this wedding and that this could have been my reality!

    I’m not sure a wedding can get any hipper. Love the rocker artwork, also in love with her dress! They both look amazing.

    What sweet comments you’re all leaving… wow. Isn’t Kelty just amazing, though? And my dream dress makers/friends, Caitlin and Shola?! I’m ridiculously lucky.

    To answer a few questions:

    1. The jewelry is from the import store Cargo in Portand, OR– designed by a woman from Israel whose name unfortunately escapes me. Kelty’s blog, steepstreet.blogspot.com has their website, so it wouldn’t be difficult to find out from them.

    2. The Disneyland donation board was made by Kelty for our gift table, as Alex and I are heading there for our honeymoon in October and had asked for donations rather than traditional gifts.

    3. For those of you interested in having Kelty photography your unique wedding, know also that she does incredible websites… go to http://www.hannahandalex.com to see ours!

    4. Thank you for all of your sweet comments! =)

    Who said weddings have to be traditional! I love brides that don’t go with the traditional flow. Her jewelry is beautiful, they look so happy. Definitely never going to part. Great photography!
