Real Wedding: Annette and Brian

Sunday, November 21, 2010


































When a crafty music librarian and her rocker sweetheart tie the knot, the results are sure to be divine. By sticking to what felt like them, Annette and Brian celebrated their big day with the perfect combination of rock n' roll and romance.

This crafty couple actually writes a blog called Daily-Craft (which is packed with hundreds more images from their gorgeous day, and is absolutely worth a peek!), so it's no surprise that this wedding was full of DIY projects. The bride screenprinted all the invitations (on gorgeous vintage hankies) and the groom lined each envelope with vintage sheet music. An avid quilter, Annette invited guests to sign a patch of quilt instead of a more traditional guest book. A vintage card catalog held escort cards, while vintage books littered the tables. Each guest received a jar of homemade jam, which featured screenprinted silhouettes of the couple that made their way onto all of the homemade papers.

Annette and Brian were married in Pasadena's Holy Family Catholic Church and celebrated with family and friends at Castle Green. Annette designed her own gown, which was made by LA's custom darling, Mina Design and Tailoring, and bride and groom exchanged custom made rings. Floral arrangements were designed by Flowers by David Z and the delicious pink cake was made by My Sweet and Saucy Shop. Veronika Pedrosian of Completely Couture Events helped bring Annette and Brian's vision to life, and the amazing Our Labor of Love captured it beautifully.
