Fantasy Friday

Reboot ~ #RedWhiteAndYou! A Fabulous 4th of July Wedding!

Wish I thought of this hashtag! #RedWhiteAndYou! Right? Totally perfect for a 4th of July wedding! And, where better to host a 4th of July wedding than the 200 year-old Publik House Historic Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts? Talk about patriotic! Seriously, Marisa and Evan really tied every single detail together while planning their holiday wedding. I mean, the venue, the clothing, the food and the vibe... Completely SPOT ON! Just wait until you see the FAB U LOUS food they served! OMG!

Bridey, if you're planning a 4th of July wedding, then look no further than Marisa and Evan's photographs for inspiration. They did an amazing job without getting sucked into the potential tackiness that can present itself when planning a holiday wedding. So, enjoy! And... Happy 4th of July!!

Burberry and bling? Sign me up! 

I adore Marisa's wildflower bouquet! So vibrant and beautiful! Speaking of vibrant and beautiful, look down. Hi Evan. You're quite dapper!

Lovin' the red, white and blue!!

That'll totally take the edge off before walking down the aisle. 

These are some seriously fabulous escort cards! LOVE THEM!!

Let's be honest... I love me some delicious fancy food, but all American food like sliders, pigs and scallops wrapped in bacon are pretty fucking awesome too! 

Those centerpieces are so cool! Plus, they have candy, and candy is good!

Um, Marisa's mother made all the favors. I know, right?! She used local produce to make salsa, sauces, pickles, etc.

Fresh popcorn and cotton candy? Best.Wedding.Ever.

Thank you for sharing this FAB 4th of July wedding with Bitchless Bride!

A Super Glamorous, Super Glitzy and Utterly Fantastic Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding

Haskell_Ferraro_RobSiglerPhotography_JM1911_low.jpg

I truly aspire to live more like all of the life I see emanating from this photograph... 
There's glitz, there's glam, there's glitz + glam, and there's a fantastic vintage typewriter worthy of obsession! Seriously, I love that Jaclyn + Matthew incorporated all of this fucking cool "glizam" into their wedding day. And, bridey, this pic is only the beginning! Just wait until you scroll down and see the bridesmaids dresses! OMFG. And, I write that with pure JOY not JUDGEMENT. They are incredible and sparkly, and totally glamorous! PLUS, all of the girls are wearing the most sensational headpieces! I swear I'm just waiting for them to start dancing like the Rockettets! 

But, beyond the butterfly-inducing details that make my wedding planner stomach go cray, this wedding is about two beautiful people (high school sweethearts!) celebrating the next step in their lives. And, it's clear to anybody viewing this post that these two are enjoying their wedding day to the fullest, and THAT, more than anything else, is worth aspiring to... Enjoy!

Haskell_Ferraro_RobSiglerPhotography_JM1186_low.jpg

Jaclyn, Jaclyn, Jaclyn... WOW! Just wow! You look stunning! That dress is EVERYTHING! And, I love how your dad is completely enamored by you.

YAAAAASSS!!! Matthew, you are rockin' that white tux!

Christmas Might be Over, But the Inspiration Doesn't Have to Be!

BreeannaKayPhotography_38_low.jpg

See those rose gold sequins? Aren't they gorgeous? I've seriously been obsessed with everything rose gold these days. You too? And this styled shoot? Well, let's just say that there is PLENTY to be obsessed with, starting with the rose gold, sequined wedding dress! Yup! A rose fucking gold wedding dress!! Did your mind just go crazy for a sec? Did you start daydreaming about wearing a rose gold wedding dress? I did! Right? Because it's sensational. And the rest of the details throughout this dreamy post? So cool. Just wait until you see the kickass flowers, delish Moscow Mules and the sweets! OMFG, the sweets! The cake! SO rockstar!

Bridey, this shoot embodies what I call winter warmth. Are there some Christmasy elements? Sure, but it's so fabulous because it reminds us that while Christmas might be over (Um, thank God... I was so done!!) it's still okay and pretty awesome to incorporate muted components of Christmas into a winter wedding. They don't have to be in your face to be beautiful, and these elements will add so much texture to the décor. Anyway... Enjoy this post, and be sure to pull some super cool inspiration for your wedding! 

BreeannaKayPhotography_1_low.jpg
Breeanna Kay.003.jpeg

Wow! LOVE the invitations! And even though it's early, I'm craving a Moscow Mule.

An Amazingly Bold, Art Deco Meets Vaudeville Styled Shoot Filled with Some Seriously Awesome "Entertainment"

TuanBampCo_tuanbcologantheatre055_low.jpg

Bridey, I have been DYING to share this styled shoot with you! Like DY ING to share this... Not only because it's fucking FAB U LOUS, but it's colorful and unique and striking and cool and different and kickass and contains a shitload of inspiration! And, did I mention that there's a contortionist? A FUCKING contortionist! OMG, can you imagine if you had a contortionist at your wedding? Oh, and there's a bearded lady and a burlesque dancer and a cake that makes me want to dig out my pasty bag and start decorating! I.CAN'T.EVEN.

Look, bridey, do I think it's realistic for you to incorporate all of these fascinatingly surprising elements into your wedding plans? Not at all, but I dare you to give yourself creative license to have fun, and break out of the traditional wedding planning mold. You have my permission to go a little cray... Seriously, just think about the conversations your guests would be having about a burlesque dancer or contortionist taking over the bar at your wedding? Combine that with a photo booth? Yeah... And, just like that, your wedding goes from standard to stupendous. Think about it... Enjoy, and be inspired!

TuanBampCo_tuanbcologantheatre002_low.jpg

See what I mean about the cake? Totally insane!

A Steamy Boudoir Sess or an Insanely Awesome PEACOCK Styled Shoot, or Both?!

JuanZambranoPhotography_PeacockRobe10_low.jpg

I know what you're thinking, bridey. You're 100% thinking that this is a sexy + steamy boudoir shoot, right? Well, not quite... Although it definitely feels like it could be a boudoir shoot based on the photograph above and several of the pics below, it's actually an edgy styled shoot with loads of peacock inspiration running through it's veins! And, it all starts with the bride's hair (and nails too)! OMFG, just look at her FABULOUS locks!!! I can't even... Bridey, if you're looking for some fucking cool inspiration, executed in a fantastically classy + fun way, then today is the best day ever!

We've talked endlessly about how you want your wedding to be different, and stand out from the others, but in order to do that you must adjust your thinking from ordinary to extraordinary! You must act on your passions and whatever you do, don't be afraid to be driven by fearless ideas!! C'mon! Use this shoot as inspiration to tap into your inner peacock, or whatever drives you + your sig other! Dare to have your wedding be the wedding which compels your peers to outdo... If they can! And this shoot? Well, it's a great way to see how to rock a theme in a way that's unique + enchanting! Enjoy!

A Styled Shoot with a Little Water, Air, Earth, but No Fire!

WingsofGloryPhotography_finaledits0180_low.jpg

Bridey, drop whatever it is that you're doing, and check out this amazing styled shoot! Even if you're not a 'get married on the water' kind of girl, you won't want to miss this! Because if nothing else, it's fucking amazing with amazing details and the most amazing wedding cake I've seen in a very long time. But, not just that... This shoot is plain ol' pretty with a lot of prettiness to look at!

I love the idea of adding "props" to your wedding to make it more authentically "you". If you and your sig other do a lot of traveling, then a globe makes perfect sense! And the plane? Hell yeah! But, bridey, the reality is, don't be afraid to do what YOU (and your sig other) want to do. Because the beauty really is in the details... And the details are what make you two the collective YOU! Now, go... Enjoy this lite and fun styled shoot!

WingsofGloryPhotography_finaledits0002_low.jpg

A Truly Stunning Steampunk Wedding at The California State Railroad Museum

Harriman_Vickers_XSIGHTProductions_127xDanaJohnXSiGHTWedding_low.jpg

Dana + John's steampunk wedding oozes with sexy-awesome-fantastic. Bridey, I just had to use a combination of three adjectives because I was way too indecisive to stick with one word. I mean, just look at that pic! Right? Not only is Dana's whole ensemble is truly A MAZ ING (OMG... Are you as completely in love with her hair as I am?!!), but, she and John are so damn steamy! Like hot for teacher steamy! Right?? Not exactly sure who she's calling in this photo, but it's probably super important! 

Anyway, bridey, the décor + the venue are a perfect match here. The California State Railroad Museum combined with the steampunk aesthetic is totally spectacular! Seriously, just wait until you see the red velvet skeleton heads! Yup! You read that right! RED VELVET SKELTON HEADS! Oh my! Even if steampunk isn't your thing, there are so many inspirational details captured in this cool and kickass wedding that I'd be surprised if you didn't walk away with at least ten things you want to incorporate into your wedding day! So go scroll, and get inspired!

Bohemian, BBQ and Bodacious... A Deliciously Alternative British Columbian Wedding

Walter_Tammark_JelgerampTanjaPhotography_AlliMikk0046jelgertanjaphotographers_low.jpg

Imagine a wedding that was all your own. A wedding in which you chose exactly what you wanted and then built the day around those very important details. Bridey, I'd like you to meet Alli + Mikk. This B+G are a complete inspiration to brides everywhere simply because that is exactly what they did. They chose what was important to them and then constructed their wedding day around those particulars. It's so simple, yet so difficult to achieve usually due to the noise and bullshit that surrounds your wedding planning. But, A+M? They rocked it! And, I'm seriously in love with them.

Not to mention that this is the first time I've shared a pic of the bride nibbling the groom's ear on Bitchless Bride! Seriously, how is that possible?! Right?! But, beyond the ear nibbles, I wholeheartedly enjoyed this wedding submission because I felt like I was there. I swear I could taste the BBQ, feel the texture of the kickass dress and play the games (and drink the booze during the two hour cocktail hour!!). Bridey, I hope that you take piles and piles of inspiration away with this post, but more than anything else, I hope you take away that it's okay to do your wedding your own way. 

Walter_Tammark_JelgerampTanjaPhotography_AlliMikk0002jelgertanjaphotographers_low.jpg

This dress is EVERYTHING! I mean... The black mixed with the texture of the skirt... I'm officially in wedding dress heaven! Now, look down for a close up.

Can we talk about how amazing the décor is? And, bridey, look closely. It's mostly plastic and it's fucking fantastic!

A Magical Disney Wedding Rockin' Amazing Purple Hair, Kick Ass Shoes and Some Seriously FAB Décor!

Ganotsi_Quengua_VIVIDfotos_KrystleRaySubmissions64_low.jpg

I wish I could draw in a speech bubble coming from Ray's mouth. I mean, I could, but I don't want to destroy the integrity of this fantastic photograph. And it really is FANTASTIC, right? So, bubbling in "Fuck yeah!" probably won't do it the justice I was aiming for, would it? Nope, so I am simply telling you what I want to do instead of doing what I want to do (a huge step for me btw...). And actually, I don't have to do either because Ray is doing it for me. And Krystle, the cool-ass bride with the pink and purple locks, is 100% feeling it too... 

Bridey, this wedding is a complete mixture of cool meets Disney. Seriously, Krystle and Ray rock some superb style, and that style, connected with the awesomeness that is Disney is captured in every frame. And as a fun side note, the B+G's combined name is "Kray". So, obviously, they had to run with it and came up with the phrase, "Kray ever after". It's too good, right?

A Sexy and Stylish "Married in the Mud" Styled Shoot

A Sexy and Stylish "Married in the Mud" Styled Shoot

I'm feeling awfully playful today, bridey, which is totally awesome for you, because I am about to share a pretty kickass styled shoot with you. SO awesome, that, like, I.CAN'T.EVEN with the wedding dress, and all of the other delicious details showcased below. Bridey, if you rock some seriously gigantic jewels (I just cannot bring myself to say, "balls" and jewels is all I could come up with...), then I DARE you to be bold enough to wear a damn sexy dress like this on your wedding day. OMG... Can you imagine? I mean... Perhaps you could cover up the tatas with a nude faux bra, but either way, a statement would be made!

The Wedding that Made Me Leave My Heart in San Francisco

Barba_Federle_IQphotoStudio_0832JK0661_low.jpg

Isn't that sexy? Like hot damn, that's a hot couple, kind of sexy? Right? And seeing Erica's Valentino's just flitting in the air, as her big strong man of a husband passionately kisses her on a busy San Francisco street? Fuck yes! Totally makes it that much better! C'mon, am I wrong? Did I go overboard? Should I be writing some smutty romance novels instead of posting on BB? You know I'd rock the shit out of those....

Anyway, bridey, enough about my smut and back to our B+G, Erica and Colin... Seriously, if you have the opportunity to ditch some of the traditional wedding photos and have your big strong sig other lift your ass up... I mean, explore the surroundings of where you are tying the knot, I strongly suggest it. Think colorful wedding pics! Think sexy! But, seriously, beyond my obsession with the sexy pics, Erica and Colin are about to show you their utterly fabulous wedding day filled with elegance, grace and sophistication.

A Kickass, Retro Wedding Brimming with Amazing Style, a FAB Bouffant and Some Seriously Awesome Décor

Livingstone_Livingstone_MaineTinkerPhotography_326132957_low.jpg

Looks like this pic could have been taken in the 60s, right? I mean, collectively, Heather + Sam are rockin' some serious lashes and chops AND they're riding in a car with a gigantic steering wheel. Totally retro-fab. But, even more than that, bridey? This pic encompasses exactly who they are and what they wanted to express on their wedding day... Themselves. Their wedding embraces the true reflection of who they are, and honestly? It's fucking superb! I can't even begin to tell you how captivated I am with the details. From the hair styles, to the bridesmaids dresses to the décor to the everything else, I'm really in awe...

Did I mention that the B+G danced the night away with their guests and were totally a "groovy" couple to photograph? OMG. I can't help it with my verbiage in this post; I'm getting a bit retro with my language. Anyway... obviously, you dig... Shit. I better quit while I'm ahead! Enjoy the many beautiful and totally rad deets of H+S's wedding!
