You’ll have to forgive me if The Free Wedding ends up being the longest feature in the history of Once Wed. It was nearly impossible to only pick a few from the 100+ spectacular images Our Labor of Love sent over last week, so I couldn’t resist going a little overboard with the posting today. I can’t tell you what an honor it was to work alongside such an incredibly talented group of vendors for this event, and I’m so excited to be the lucky blogger who gets to unveil it first on Once Wed. Joy Thigpen, the brilliant designer behind this wedding, was kind enough to pop in for the day to share some lovely details from Sam and Kaitlyn’s wedding and how it came to be…
Basically, a few friends got together and decided we wanted to do a photo shoot together to showcase our work. By the bottom of our coffee cups, the little photo shoot had evolved into a full-blown fake wedding, at which point, the light bulb went off in all our minds, why not have a real wedding where we get free reign and someone gets a free wedding! So a contest was held and one month before the wedding, Sam, Kaitlyn and little Jonah were the lucky winners.
Are you loving what your seeing? Stay tuned for so many more details coming up next…
Photography by Our Labor of Love
Photographer Katie Grant recently travelled to Indonesia, where she photographed this modern bridal fashion editorial in the Prambanan Temple, an 9th century Hindu temple, revered as the most beautiful Hindu temple in the world. The expansive stone complex became the perfect setting for this modern bridal fashion inspiration: a chic column gown and simple greenery bouquet are a stunning contrast to the ancient setting.
Sometimes, it rains on your wedding day. And sometimes, it pours...read on to see how this couple still managed to pull off one of the most gorgeous weddings we've ever seen.
