Circus Wedding by Cameron Ingalls

From the Bride… We love all things vintage and vintage inspired. One of our favorite things to do is go to any type of circus, burlesque, and or freak show. So naturally we decided if we were going to throw a party we were going to share with everyone our vision of the perfect party and of course the theme would be 1940s circus! …all images by Cameron Ingalls Photography
Boy Meets Girl… It all started a long long time ago in a land far far away. Ok, so maybe not far far away but a long time ago wayyyyyy back in the summer of 2004! A young brace face boy named Josh Gates spotted a girl in a mini skirt named Stacey Baker. As the boy was shy… the two were introduced by one of Stacey’s best friends. Stacey was out to have a boy free summer of fun with the girls. But Josh was persistent enough to finally have Stacey as his girlfriend in February of 2005!
Years later, and not untill March of 2011 did the girl who once wore mini skirts… agree to move in with the boy who now has beautifully straight teeth! So, early on Wednesday morning the 4th of May, 2011 Stacey woke up next to Josh. He says.. “lets go to the court house and get married today!” and as this conversation usually goes… she smiles and says.. “you know my mom would literally KILL… not only me but you also!” this was not the 1st time he had asked her to marry him… her normal response was always..“ask me when your serious…” conversation continued, there was a pause as they were looking into each others eyes. Josh asks again.. “Stacey will you marry me?” something was very different this time, she could not give him her usual response. Her eyes started to tear as Josh took her hand, got out of bed and onto one knee. He asked one more time “Stacey, I love you. Will you marry me?” Barely able to speak.. She smiles the biggest smile shes ever had…and says “YES!!!“
Details… We were most excited about our tent!!! It was definitely what brought the entire theme to life!
Rad Wedding Vendors… we were beyond excited to work with Saralee Franchi of XOXObrides. She is amazingly talented and truly makes your dreams of the most fabulous wedding day come true!

Advice for “Newbie Brides”… Our best advice to “Newbie Brides” would be to do exactly what you want for your wedding. We wanted to look back in 50 years and know we had the wedding of our dreams and did it exactly how we wanted it. On the day of remember to breathe and take it in as much as you can because it goes way to fast! Dont let the things you can not change ruin your day… YOUR wedding day is only going to be as amazing as you let it be. At the end of the day you have the person you love, your bestfriend beside you and as long as you two have a smile on your face the guests will enjoy themselves.
