Wedding Spotlight: Janice and Erik’s Rockledge Inn Wedding
The roaring 20’s were an interesting time in fashion. “Flapper girls” were the norm, and the playfully short hairstyles, with the sculpted curls and waves were reflections of the popular art-deco themes of the age.
It was a wildly popular and scandalous look that eventually became vogue and even the elite older women began emmulating the Flappers. It was certainly a statement of fashion, and very unique as I can’t think of another age in which the fashion was similar.
That’s why I found it so striking that Janice had implemented all the right facets of the Flapper look, and successfully created the most unique bridal look for 2008 that I’ve seen. It wasn’t a throwback, and yet it wasn’t completely modern, but it was all flattering and very fun to photograph.
It was our first wedding at the Rockledge Inn. It’s a winding, curving, maze of terraces, slopes and views. It is rather tight, so it’s probably not appropriate for large weddings, but for smaller mid-size weddings of 80-100 people or so, it’s amazing!
Rockledge itself was built in 1910, but had it’s real heyday during the Roaring 20’s! I don’t know that little fact was on purpose for Janice, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
Janice and Erik did a terrific job planning their wedding. All we ask is for lots of personality, a fun and relaxed atmosphere, and a couple in love. Janice and Erik gave us all of that, and more.
Congratulations you two! Thank you so much for the honor of photographing your beautiful day.
