When I saw this one drop into my Two Bright Lights submission queue, I had to silence an audible squeal and instead I tweeted, “POLKA DOT BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES …. I repeat, POLKA DOT BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES”. Because omg you guys – these polka dot bridesmaids dresses, with purple-blue crinoline underneath are just to-die-for. If I got married all over again, these would be my bridesmaids. Hands down. The rest of the details from this Rockabilly/1950s Virginia wedding are no less awesome. Unfortunately I don’t have insight from the couple on this feature, but I think the images speak for themselves. Enjoy.
Some insight from the photographer, Stephanie:
I’ve never had the pleasure of photographing such a unique celebration as Kat and Dave’s 1950’s/Rockabilly wedding, but goodness gracious great balls of fire…I’m a fan. A fan of Kat’s, a fan of Dave’s, a fan of their hilarious and fun bridal party, and a stalker status fan of their crazy-cool style.
Take note, everyone. Kat and Dave know how to throw an incredibly happy, unique, memorable celebration. Black and white polka dots, purple bow ties and petticoats, piercing red lipstick, sweet motorcycles, and abundant “that’s what she said” jokes from the bridesmaids had me on cloud nine. Oh, and an incredibly adorable dog named Bella adorned with a purple handkerchief who was quick to adorn you with puppy kisses.

It was pouring all morning/early afternoon, but we were blessed with a respite right as Kat and Dave had their first look, and by the time we were ready to jet off to the ceremony, the sun was beaming with fervor to suggest it needed to make up for lost time. Glowy, warm, and comfortable, the weather mirrored the sentiments of everyone present for their intimate ceremony at the National Marine Corps Heritage Museum.
Kat and Dave were glowing the entire day, so happy to celebrate their love with family and friends. I was truly honored to document their style, their celebration, and their love.
