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!!!“

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. circus-wedding-37
