Oh la la!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Via Once Wed, este oh so very french…! real wedding celebrado na floresta dos avós da noiva (!!!).

Tudo foi feito pelos próprios, família e amigos: convites, decoração, chão de dança, and so on…

 

“We’ve been working in the forest for 9 month to make it nice, we bought tents and built a candyfloss shed and the dancefloor (with a star in the middle), I went every weeks to emmaüs (french charity store) to buy 65 chairs for the dinner and nice vintage dishes, people lent us the tables and my grand mother gave me white sheets and flowers to decorate it. The dress code for the guests was : dots and stripes and many of them followed it. Our guests slept in tents with us after dancing around a camp fire and it’s been a wonderful day and night. I imagined everything with the caterer, the designer for my dress and the taylor for my husband’s suit.”

 

Que bonito…!

Adoro os sapatos e o bolero de lantejoulas (tudo, aliás…!), mas o bouquet é simplesmente magnífico!

Bastante fantástico!

Os convites são maravilhosos, a decoração festiva e muito bem disposta, tudo transpira frescura e boa disposição (repararam nas sandálias e verniz da noiva…?)


Ideia perfeita, explicada pela noiva:

“On the day of the wedding, the natural setting was so dreamy: sunlight peeking through trees, leaves rustling in the soft wind.  Matt and I can come back at any time in our lives to hike or picnic and say with giddy nostalgia, “Hey, remember when we got married here?!”

Everyone kept telling us that the wedding was so us, which to me, is the best possible compliment. We incorporated details that made us excited and left out those that didn’t. Our first dance was to the Glee version of “My Life Would Suck Without U.” We sang a “first song”(our own rendition of Adam Sandler’s “Grow Old With You”).

(…) This is everything I envisioned and more.”


Aposto que nunca se tinham lembrado deste detalhe (eu, sei que não…!)… casar num sítio onde se pode voltar facilmente, namorar, passar a noite e celebrar uma memória tão especial.


Muito bonito, verdade…?

Verdadeiramente simples!

Para fechar esta semana de calor e o mês de Julho (em Agosto teremos um plano editorial mais light e algumas novidades, mas disso já falaremos em detalhe), fica mais um real wedding tão simples e tão perfeito, que capta a verdadeira essência de “menos é mais”… Até as vulgares cadeiras de cozinha do Ikea assentam que nem uma luva, sem pretensões!



(O melhor momento fotográfico é sem dúvida este, o do sorriso meio pateta, a transbordar de felicidade absoluta e contagiante!)





Os sapatos são lindos , em cetim cinza, a combinar com a faixa da cintura e outros detalhes.









Retratos fotográficos dos convidados… aqui está um presente perfeito, quem não gostaria?

Bom fim de semana!

Iceland!

Christina + Mark, na Islândia!








Que bonito! Os sapatos Prada, são um luxo, e os pormenores de decoração, fantásticos, não acham…?


“Christina and Mark had a difficult time deciding where to get married. Christina is from Vancouver and Mark is from the UK, and they have close friends dotted all over the world. Finding a location that was convenient to everyone seemed impossible, but Iceland ended up being perfect. It’s between London (their old home) and New York (their current home) and represented everything they wanted in a destination wedding: romance, intrigue, tranquility and 24 hour sunlight!”

Crafting your wedding, layer by layer

19 Jul

This is a very exciting wedding, cakelets. Not only is it gorgeous and Icelandic and volcanic and postcard-worthy, it was also styled by our very own Jillian. Hooray! Seriously, when you see these pictures, you’re going to cancel your current plans and opt for a small wedding in Iceland too.

Christina and Mark had a difficult time deciding where to get married. Christina is from Vancouver and Mark is from the UK, and they have close friends dotted all over the world. Finding a location that was convenient to everyone seemed impossible, but Iceland ended up being perfect. It’s between London (their old home) and New York (their current home) and represented everything they wanted in a destination wedding: romance, intrigue, tranquility and 24 hour sunlight!

Christina contacted Jillian pretty much the moment J launched her business in January. Christina is super stylish, but not really the crafty sort. While she loves the handmade look, she knew she wasn’t going to be able to pull it off herself (for a wedding in Iceland) and also couldn’t count on local vendors, who she didn’t know at all, to create the wedding she envisioned. Perfect solution: hire one very talented lady to style it up!

Their invites, designed by Sarah Hanks, were little books documenting not only the wedding festivities but also their story as a couple, a sweet poem by Cole Porter, and a few other travel essentials.

In terms of design, Christina knew she wanted to play up the amazing natural beauty of Iceland and use the land whenever possible. Jesse and Jillian even picked handfuls of the local wildflowers (which are like milkweeds to the locals, but very pretty to guests) and added them to Christina’s bouquet.

The ceremony was outside, overlooking the ocean and lava fields. How cute are the mix n’ match chairs? Definitely a perk of having such a small wedding.

They booked Hotel Budir for the entire weekend and as Christina says, they could not have been more hospitable. They treated their 50 guests like family and went out of the way to make their wedding celebration completely perfect. Plus they got to indulge in 2 am hikes to waterfalls and dancing til 6 in the morning. It’s hard to sleep when the sun is always out and you’re about to get married!

For the reception, Jillian made fun escort cards inspired by the Us Box we posted from Summer of Grey Likes Weddings. Guests picked up their escort card and then found a corresponding phrase at their seat. Christina’s said “I Heart” and “Mark”. Cute idee-er! Christina found the trinkets on Etsy.

Alguém disse DIY…?

Acreditem ou não, mas foi tudo feito por ambos, apenas contrataram o oficiante e o fotógrafo, tudo o resto, vestido, comida, decoração… feito pelos próprios, amigos e família…

E que bonito que ficou, como podem verificar já de seguida…!
















Adoro a combinação de cores, tão fresca e ao mesmo tempo suave, e as letras…!

Outside the box

Hoje deixo apenas estas poucas fotografias, e remeto-vos directamente para o site da fotógrafa Michèle M. Waite .

O casamento é da Kristina + Alan, e encontrei-o no 100 Layer Cake. Os pormenores são absolutamente …intensos, e tudo muito diferente do habitual, a começar pelo magnífico vestido e sapatos da noiva, o bouquet de craspedias e as velinhas no rio, em homenagem aos parentes já falecidos… tudo repleto de muito amor e doçura:






Daqui se conclui… um casamento não é só um vestido branco e rodado, cabelo comprido ou um fato brilhante que se veste apenas uma vez, 200 pessoas a quem não se consegue dar a atenção devida e comida até rebentar… Na minha opinião e é aquilo que gostamos de mostrar no Simplesmente Branco, alargando horizontes e mostrando diferente, esquisito, estranho, não convencional, do mesmo modo que mostramos casamentos românticos, tradicionais, clássicos , é um momento especial, um reflexo dos noivos e da história que começaram e querem partilhar com quem lhes é próximo.


É um momento de partilha composto por inúmeros detalhes intensos cheios de amor contagiante, eléctrico e inesquecível…


Haverá melhor…?
