Rock 'n' Roll Glam Same-Sex Wedding Inspiration
Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-2017-131.jpg

You don't have to choose between punk rock edge and a bit of sparkle. This gorgeous wedding look was inspired by rockers who push limits with their style, like classic rock idols David Bowie and Billy Idol or modern rock n rollers like Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie. These two grooms channel their inner rockstars with fashion-forward outfits and unique hairstyles. A black, red, and silver palette keeps the look edgy yet chic. I love how the concept of hard and soft plays out in a mix of textures like leather and plush velvet, studs and sequins. Lyrics on the invitations and signage keep the focus on the musical inspiration.

The invitation suite, created by Marianne Hudz, featured a real 45 record as the invitation.

This gorgeous three-tiered cake brings a rocker edge with black tiers, while ornate silver trim and a center tier covered in red rosettes add the glam.

Fortuneteller Romance Wedding Inspiration
Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-2017-277.jpg

This wedding look was inspired by the powerful image of the mysterious fortuneteller woman. It gives nods to a vintage, forties vibe while also incorporating otherworldly details like tarot cards, crystals, and even a crystal ball. The dark, moody, embellished vibe reflects the strength and mystique of the woman behind the inspiration.

This gorgeous vintage-inspired ring (named "The Dynasty") was designed and crafted by the husband and wife team behind Make Her Say Duh! engagement rings.

Instead of typical "bride" and "groom" chair back signs, their chairs were adorned with sun and moon symbols hung from gold chains.

Tarot cards took the place of table numbers, the sweethearts table denoted by "The Lovers" card.

The bride's gown is a Rebecca Schoneveld piece: the sheer embroidered “Emerson” gown over a simple “Lumi” slip. Her veil is a hand-beaded rhinestone cap veil with fingertip length tulle back by Camilla Christine.

Dark Forest Engagement Shoot: Tommy and Natalie

Despite the super hot Los Angeles weather right now, I'm still getting in the fall mood, so it seems like the perfect time to share this gorgeous engagement shoot. I love when couples bring a little punk rock edge into their photoshoots, especially when it's combined with glam outfits. Tommy and Natalie nailed their edgy, dark, forest engagement shoot with their killer black outfits paired with Natalie's braided mohawk-inspired hairstyle and high-top black converse.

This dress was stunning! Depending on the light it would seemingly change color from purple to black to gray. Plus the scoop back and mermaid cut are ultra-flattering.

Natalie's awesome braided mohawk was courtesy of Helena of Hair of the Bride.

In this area of forest there are some really cool ruins left behind from some older building. I have tried without success to figure out where these came from. Regardless, it just added to the slightly spooky gothic ambiance that was already going on.

Maybe some day there will come a time where I'm not totally head over heals for the look of Converse with a formal gown. Today is not that day. I AM DYING OVER THIS GORGEOUSNESS!

Sebastian and Holly are an adorable couple who joined me for a just-for-fun session at the LA County Fair this past weekend (the last weekend of this year's fair).

Taking photos on a merry-go-round while spinning was definitely a challenge, but the photos came out great!
