    Fantasy Friday ~ Fixin' to Show Y'all a Fabulous Southern Wedding

    OMG... when I saw this gorgeous wedding, I seriously thought that was thumbing through the pages of Southern Wedding magazine. There are some profoundly stunning details (like, down to the field of rainbow wildflowers, I mean…who has that?!), a beautiful bride whose name means “noble kind” (and look at her, it totally fits) lovely, blush bridesmaids dresses, a kickass square wedding cake… Seriously, I could keep going, but I think I’d rather show you. Right?

    But, first, here’s the lowdown… Heidy and Sharon were married at The Island House on Johns Island just outside of Charleston, SC. The Island House is a private location with beautiful views of the Stono River. Heidy and Sharon had an outdoor ceremony with about 70 of their closest friends and family who made their way to South Carolina from all over the country. Their reception was tented and fabulous filled with tons of dancing, hora-ing and fun! My girl, Heidy, changed out of her wedding gown into a fucking GORGE sequined dress that will absolutely leaving you drooling, brideys! Enjoy!Whoa... That's fancy!Dying over the blush.What did I tell you? Heidy is STUN NING!!Look at those flowers! Not just the lovely bouquets, but the wildflowers in the background. Gorgeous! And I am lovin' those bridesmaids dresses!Hopefully the glass Sharon is breaking is actually a light bulb. Yeah, light bulbs break easily... Glass does not always break! Definitely not what you want to happen at your wedding! Mazel Tov!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Pacific Palms Destination Wedding

    When I receive a submission from the talented Hilary Cam, I get this ridiculous grin on my face. Why? Well, because Hilary seems to be the luckiest photographer I have ever known. Seriously, he always works with these remarkable couples in picturesque locations with really cool details. I adore his photos and the way each and every one tells a story within the story. Hilary is truly able to capture the essence of each bride and groom he photographs. So, maybe it's not that he's lucky after all. I believe it's called raw talent. 

    When you take in Melanie and Stuart's wedding in the gorgeous Pacific Palms, New South Wales, Australia, you will see Hilary's raw talent, exposed (sorry, couldn't help it...). These pics speak so loudly, that if I just posted these photos without writing a word, you'd walk away with a full understanding of exactly who Melanie and Stuart are and how their wedding was a brilliant representation of their relationship. What I will tell you is that Melanie is from Australia and Stuart is from the UK so this is a destination wedding. Enjoy!!!

    I love the robes.Hilary said that Melanie was super fun and smiled and laughed all day.Hilary Cam: We had a unique groom’s prep in the morning, rather than the classic shots of suits and ties Stuart wanted a more apt prep for a beach setting and so we headed to the beach with his groomsmen who had all travelled from the UK. Stuart got more of Boomerang Beach than he bargained for when he was thrown in the water.I've seriously never seen groomsmen have so much fun while "getting ready". Melanie and Stuart's invitation (designed by the groom) features a kookaburra and a robin holding a love heart – symbolic of an Australian and an Englishman falling in love. I mean... First of all, I love the invite, but the meaning is melt-worthy.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ What I look for in a Bride... 

    Recently, one of my brides asked, "BB, what do you look for in a bride?" Really, she did. And you know what? I was fucking floored. Because as an event planner, usually I am the one grilled with questions about my role in the wedding planning process, how my fees work, and basically, if I am worth it. So, to have the tables turned caught me a bit off guard. To be safe, I asked her exactly what she meant by "what do I look for in a bride" because, frankly, I didn't want to risk offending her if I put on my Bitchless Bride hat, and actually told her the truth. But when she said, "I want to keep my friends at the end of this thing..." I thought I would go big or go home. So here's what I told her:

    1. Remember to stay true to yourself. Create the wedding that is right for you and your sig other and forget everything else. I say it all of the time, but it's worth repeating. Ignore the noise. Politely nod when you receive unsolicited advice and move on. I mean, if you actually took every piece of advice given to you during your engagement, then your wedding would literally be about everybody else except you (two)!!

    2. Be kind. Be kind to your bridesmaids. Be kind to your family. Be kind to your vendors. Most of all? Be kind to your fiancé. Bridey, I can assure you that you will get so much more joy (and help for that matter) if you're kind those around you. Remember, talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words. So show the people who are important to you that they are in fact important to you.

    Let your bridesmaids off the hook. Give them a color and let them pick out their own dresses or throw a party for them as opposed to a bachelorette party.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Cat Lovin', Dog Lovin', Nature Lovin' and Simply Fun Lovin' Wedding

    Allow me to introduce you to Monique and Aaron. Aren't they a beautiful couple? Seriously, both have amazingly bright blue eyes, gorgeous auburn hair, and incredible taste. Not only in their significant others, but in how they chose to incorporate eveything they loved into one day. Bridey, as you dive into these cool ass pics, I want you to think about everything that is important to you, and how you can build it into your wedding. I mean, your wedding is meant to be about you and your partner, and it's so easy to get wrapped up in the craziness of the planning that we forget what it's all about.

    So, don't. Don't forget. Don't forget to make your wedding about what's important. The two of you! Alright, enough outta me! Time to enjoy the Monique and Aaron's lovely wedding.

    Monique, that's one hell of a tattoo!! And your figure looks AWES!I mean... Awwww... Gotta have a little kitty love on your wedding day!!Ta-Da!!! I love the explosion of color! Such a FAB backdrop!Wow! What a babe!! Monique, you look beautiful!This is too cute. Look how happy Monique and Aaron are to see their pup!!!Either those flowers are super potent, or somebody must have said something mushy...

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ The Fantastic Mr. & Mrs. Fox

    Kate and John Fox had their wedding at a local private high school. Seriously, they're probably the only people I know who would voluntarily go back to high school, right? But, how fabulously unique is that? I mean... Apparently, this was the first wedding held in the school, and I absolutely love that they chose to think out of the box! Anyway, the ceremony was in a chapel inside of the school and the reception was outside despite the rain! People always say that rain is good luck your wedding day, but as a wedding planner (and if you're a bride reading this), honestly, it's a pain in the ass! 

    Luckily, it only rained during their formal photographs, and a few volunteers held umbrellas over the cake. So ultimately, they had good luck (phew!), and the pics to prove it!! And with a name like "Fox", they just  HAD to incorporate their name into their wedding day! After all, how many people could say that their wedding is truly the day of the fox...?

    I really, really love these jewel toned bouquets!Look at Kate's father. His eyes are welling up...Fantastic kiss!Loving the green color palette!
