Awhile back, I shared my vow renewal photos here which were taken in honor of my 5 year wedding anniversary with Joey. Back in 2010, after just 9 months of dating, we eloped to Vegas with my BFF Bianca without much of a game plan besides having a really good time — and I don’t regret a thing!
Five years later, we’d fallen in love with Palm Springs and decided to have a little vacation in a rented mid-century modern house for a few days with Made U Look Photography shooting photos so we’d always have those memories.
Those photos are now featured in the current issue of Rock n Roll Bride Magazine, which is on newsstands and in grocery stores across the UK. You can also order a copy directly from the website.
Rock n Roll Bride is a UK-based alternative wedding publication that’s ran by my friend, Kat and while designing a magazine has always been my dream career scenario, I never thought I’d end up featured in one!
Being across the world from the magazine headquarters means that I don’t often see the current issue in print until it’s been out for a few weeks so having a stack show up on my doorstep a few days ago and being able to finally hand them out to family and friends has been completely surreal.
I was never very traditional when it came to weddings and was so overwhelmed with the choices related to my own, I didn’t even start planning. Running off to Vegas was the easiest solution! Now, having the opportunity to design Rock n Roll Bride has changed things for me because I see weddings completely differently. They can be as unique as the couple involved and have the potential to simply be an epic party instead of the stuffy occasions I remember attending as a kid! 😉
Being featured while simply wearing my original wedding dress and hanging out with Joey and Rocky has been a highlight of this year. It’s refreshing to be a part of a magazine that lets couples shine as themselves with no outside styling or demands. I’m glad a place like this exists for brides-to-be to realize that what they want, even if it’s a DIY backyard wedding or an elopement is totally fair game.
