Jill Thomas recently sent in the sweet wedding of Chelsea and Forrest which took place at The Smog Shoppe in LA. Jill shoots film at all her weddings through a variety of really neat cameras(contax, holga, polaroid, etc) which always makes for an exciting feature on Once Wed. I especially love the look of the blue gingham shirts up against her sweet Saja dress and Anthropologie shrug…

I just don’t think this wedding could be any better if it tried. Every single aspect is gorgeous – but most importantly, the couple! How adorable are they?

Love this set! That’s Forrest from hellogoodbye, AKA the best band ever. Chelsea’s dress is amazing!

You can tell from the way they look at each other that they could get married in a shack and it would still be the best marriage ever. The fact that they went ahead and had the cutest wedding of all time? Adorable!

I’m pretty sure those yellow heels are from Urban Outfitters!

Does anyone know if the guys are actually wearing jeans? Or are those just dark patterned pants and I’m blind??

My guy wants to wear nice jeans and people think I should talk him out of it. I’m okay with it as long as he looks nice! Our wedding is at a campground, afterall!
