Chuck Taylor Duo  MAR 31 09

How many people do you know opt to wear Chuck Taylors on their wedding day? One of the most iconic shoes in the country, Chucks have a special place in my pseudo-hipster heart! I love these two photos together: both Robin and Erik are tying up their right Chuck on the morning of their wedding. It’s a sign of the compatibility and uniqueness that ties them together.

Next up, we have the bridal party photos. Who says they have to be the same “line-everyone-up-according-to-height-and-partner-with-bride-and-groom-in-the-middle” picture you’ve seen a zillion times. Let the flower girls spin around in the foreground while everyone else watches on! Everyone jump, showing off some rockin’ air guitar moves! For me, the key to great bridal party photos is allowing everyone to show off his or her personality. These ones showcase just that.

I’m going to come right out and say that this is one of my favorite cakes I’ve ever seen. Not only is it not covered in fondant and rosettes (though that can make a lovely cake, too, don’t get me wrong), it has Foo Fighters lyrics on it. And not just any Foo Fighters lyrics, “Everlong” lyrics, one of my all-time favorite songs. Plus, I have a dirty rockstar crush on Dave Grohl, but that’s another story for another day. Check it out!

And, finally, we have the picture that wraps it all up into a nice bow: Robin and Erik, having snuck away from all the hustle and bustle of the day, get a little snuggling in while showing off their Chucks. The isolation of this photo makes me think they’re getting to spend some quality time together, enjoying one another’s company, and starting the rest of their lives together.
