A Seriously Kickass, Game of Thrones, "Winter" Wedding

A Seriously Kickass, Game of Thrones, "Winter" Wedding

So often a bride will approach me and say that she wants something "different" for her wedding; something unique. She wants something "that hasn't been done before". And, more often than not, that statement leaves me in the position to disappoint my fair bride with that news that pretty much everything has been done before. However, then I immediately have the opportunity to surprise and delight her by telling her that even though it's been done before, doesn't mean that it can't be done again, but better. Right? Right! 

Take Abbey + Matt. They did something totally cool and "different" simply by doing something that has been done before, but done extremely well! They told their photographer, Uttke Photography & Design, that “We’re planning a non-traditional, Game of Thrones inspired wedding. Lots of gold, rustic backdrop and natural accents with a little flair. We’re trying to walk the fine line between being badass and kitschy.” And holy shit did they succeed in their badassery. From all of the cool DIY aspects to the crown Abbey wore... I mean, I can't stand the fucking awesomeness... And, even though it didn't snow in February in the Midwest and was 65 degrees (WTF?), it didn't matter. The B+G had such FAB details that the lack of snow didn't feel essential for the Game of Thrones theme to come to life. SO, go scroll, bridey! I will continue to enlighten you with the details as you go! Enjoy!

I can't even with these A MAZ ING invitations!!! Holy shit!

That crown! That dress! I want one of each!

Love.this.pic.

Are you dying over these fabulous, sequined bridesmaids dresses? Seriously, I am OBSESSED!

STFU. Wow! Another something that I require one of each...

Such a cool way of displaying the escort cards!

Matt's dad made Abbey & Matt the thrones to sit in and enjoy their feast...

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

Love this beautiful photograph... So emotionally charged and real. Want to hear some advice from the B+G? "Take a moment to savor all of the love and support you feel on your wedding day as you are surrounded by the ones you love most. It’s the only time that they will ALL be in one place." SO true.

You had me at caramel... Actually, you will always have me with some caramel.

Thank you Abbey + Matt for sharing your thoughtful + kickass wedding with Bitchless Bride!!!
