1950’s Retro Southern California wedding: Dominique + Ron, part 2

Categories   Real Weddings

We’re back with more goodies from Dominique + Ron’s wedding, so if you haven’t seen part 1 yet just do a little downward scrolling action to give it a looksie. This time around we’re getting a sneak peek into their pre-reception portrait sesh with the Joielala gals. Awesome DIY alert! You see that star headpiece Dominique is wearing? She made it!

I would have to say my favorite project, and probably the most difficult and time consuming was my star headpiece I made for the reception. I was inspired originally from Hedy Lamarr’s costume headpiece in the 1941 film, Ziegfield Girl, and more recently inspired by a headpiece by Stephan Jones. I made it completely on my own and took me close to 30 hours over the course of 3 weeks to make. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out in the end, but I was so incredibly happy with the results!

When Ron and I first got together he played “These Arms of Mine” by Otis Redding alllll the time, so we had that song play as we danced our first dance out in the field during our portraits, away from the crowd.

Dominique, Congratulations! I adore everything about your wedding. It is more lovely than any I have seen and so much a part of whom you are. I can see you have made the perfect match in Ron Remember love isn't about dresses and photos and parties it's about better or WORSE, richer or POORER, and SICKNESS and health. It's those capital times when love abides and you seal a lifetime bond. It's a road worth traveling if you realize there is balance in all things everything will come with joys and sorrows! Much Love Justine

I love the bride's dress! It's gorgeous, structured on the bodice and fluffy tulle for the skirt, it looks like something a ballerina would wear!
