Surprise Pool Party Wedding Recreation · Rock n Roll Bride

Oh I love a surprise wedding! And a surprise wedding + pool party!? EPIC!

But this wasn’t actually a real wedding, it was set up as a recreation of the wedding of some friends of the photographer who were married 30 years ago. Jessie & Kenny had a wedding just like this one, in the exact same spot, in 1982 (some of their wedding photos are at the end of the gallery – how amazing are they?!) So to celebrate, and to have an their anniversary party with a difference, they decided to relive the whole thing. This is a styled shoot unlike the rest and, yes, they really had the big party afterwards!

Styled shoots have been wedding blog favourites for a few years now. I do like to feature them to share new wedding ideas with my bride & groom-to-be readers but I’ve always really preferred to publish real weddings. It’s not that I don’t like styled shoots, but I know real life examples always go down better than a ‘concept’ set up but a bunch of wedding industry professionals who think that it’s a quirky, cool (or in recent times – trendy) and very ‘blogable’ idea for a wedding.

Which is why I love this shoot. It is a new concept. It’s a recreation of a wedding, being sympathetic to the original inspiration while showcasing some awesome new ideas. Just like with Whit & Colby, I was initially disappointed when I realised that this wasn’t an actual wedding, but again like with Whit & Colby I love it because of the amazing creativity behind it. On reflection I congratulate the creative team for doing something that I wish everyone else would… actually being creative.

“In a nutshell, I have always been deeply inspired by Jessie & Kenny’s wedding story – they are like second parents to me and dear, dear friends”, wrote photographer Kierstin. “So this year, as they celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary, a bunch of my friends and I recreated their special day at their home. as our bride and groom.”

“Thirty years ago, on the 4th of July, Jessie & Kenny invited their close friends and family to a pool party. It was a typical pool party filled with drinks, BBQ, friends and fun. Somewhere in the middle of the swimming, drinking and BBQ-ing, Jessie & Kenny casually got out of the pool and slipped inside. Just a short while after, they opened the door and stepped back out on the patio in wedding attire and announced… they were getting married!! No one but their ‘people of honor’ and the minister knew. Their guests stood stunned in disbelief of what they were seeing and hearing. As Jessie & Kenny proceeded to actually take their vows their guests, still in bathing suits, gathered round and took witness to what has to go down as one of the most unique and special weddings ever.”

Well it would seem that Rock n Roll weddings have been out there for longer than I’ve been alive! I’m thrilled to share this beautiful recreation, but even more so to see their original wedding photographs.

I went to the best wedding ever yesterday

by shadiestguyalive_

I have gone to about 20 weddings in my lifetime and this was without a doubt the best wedding ever because my good buddy did it the way a wedding is supposed to be--all about fun. He basically acted the way he would when we would party and at his bachelor party. Yes, there were keg stands. Yes there was nudity. Yes, there were women thrown in to the pool. Yes, people did throw up. It was priceless to look on the faces of the brides family as they looked on in horror. I personally will take credit for throwing 8 willing people in to the swimming pool. The bride was the first to be thrown in her dress and didn't mind one bit

Because my wedding is a destination one

by ---

And I want to pay the lodging for those who are coming. Besides, I come from a huge Italian/Irish family while my FH has a very small familiy.
The big one is going to be ultra casual. The park has a volleyball court, horse shoes, tether ball, playground and pool so whole families can come and have a good time.
Am going to cater in BBQ.
Easy and virtually no effort since the caterer does all the permits and everything.
It is more of a big family reunion (with both families but mostly mine) than a wedding party.

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
