    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Southern Wedding That Feels Like a Styled Shoot

    I love this wedding. I know I say that all of the time, but Sarah and Terry's wedding is a little different because when I first saw this submission, I thought it was a styled shoot. Seriously. The details are so lovely, and amazingly, completely capture the essence of both family and design. It's really incredible. Look up. See that pic? Totally looks like it should be rockin' the pages of some fancy magazine. The roses in the bouquets are just so, and they are quite stunning. But, it's not a styled shoot, bridey, it's a real Southern wedding!

    Seriously, this fall wedding will make you feel like you are standing in the middle of an autumn painting. All of the details help to create a beautiful mindset and overall feel of warmth. Not gonna lie... Sarah's dog and flower girl definitely steal the show at times, and the cuteness is almost overwhelming. I love the mason jars, wheat stalks, and gorgeous florals. Bridey, there is so much to look at in this post, so you'd better get started!

    Such a beautiful gown!!Doggie!!!
    Could ya' bust!? Flower girl chasing the dog!I mean, this wedding screams fall!! I LOVE the blankets, and all of the fall decor!OMG. Too cute!
    Sarah, your over the shoulder gown is truly FAB! Looks amazing on you!Such a fantasic pic!The rest of the photographs are why I thought this was a styled shoot.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Wedding Planning... It's Only Temporary, Bridey

    I had brunch with a close friend of mine recently, and this chick? Well, she's pretty fucking KICKASS!! And not because she's the CEO of some company or because she's got her shit together, but because of her perspective, bridey. You know, my favorite word in the whole wide world! PERSPECTIVE!! They say that you never know where your inspiration is going to come from, and let's just say that today's post hit me like a ton of bricks. You see, my kickass friend? Well, she's going through some awful shit these days. I won't get into the gory details, but it seems like all of the craziness is happening to her all at once. You know the saying about how shit happens in 3s? I seriously think this is her fourth or fifth. And instead of wallowing in her sorrow (which I would probably succumb to myself), she just keeps casually uttering, "It's only temporary." Wow. So simple, yet hard to do...

    As a wedding planner, I've watched some pretty cool girls get rocked by their wedding planning simply because planning your wedding and real life are oftentimes a tough mix. But, as I listened to my friend say that, "It's only temporary", it kinda got me thinking about her healthy outlook. Instead of slipping into a dark place and lashing out at her friends and family, everyday she rises above how she feels, and looks forward; something that I think is really hard for all of us to do. How do you fit into this, bridey?

    Well, if you look at planning your wedding as something that is only temporary, adjust your perspective (during the particularly difficult times like dealing with family dynamics and budget constraints) and realize that a year from now, life will most likely be totally different (depending on when you are getting married) then you too should be able to utter the phrase, "It's only temporary." The key? You'll actually have to adjust your thinking and believe in that statement. It won't be easy and it probably won't alleviate the stress and bullshit you are dealing with instantaneously, but it has the power of preventing you from getting in your own way, and rising above...

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Happy Anniversary to Me!

    So... I decided to take the week off, brideys. I wasn't going to, but I desperately need a break... A break from wedding planning, event planning and work in general (BB too). I kinda need to check out and focus on my family. After all, it is Thanksgiving, right? And I am thankful to be in Chicago with the fam about to eat yummy food and drink yummy booze.

    Although, as you can tell by the pic, it is also my 10 year wedding anniversary. Yup! Ten years ago today, my hus and I sneaked to Las Vegas and eloped. Holy SHIT! It's been ten years!! We've come a long way from the dude I met in the bar to the dude who I consider the love of my life. Right? Whoa... Cheesy, but true!

    Well, bridey, if you miss me, feel free to browse the archives, FaceBook me, follow my tweets from Chicago or check out my pins... Because those are addictions I must feed, whether I check out or not.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!

    XO,

    BB

    Fantasy Friday ~ A 1920s, Speakeasy Themed Anything But Average Wedding

    If Kacie and Shaun look familiar to you, it's for good reason. Perhaps you have visited them at the bar where they tend, but most likely it's because I posted their Engagement Shoot on Bitchless Bride. Ringing any bells, bridey? Remember, Kacie had Shaun at knife point! Seriously! But, the blade was not resting across his neck, it grazing the top of his head. Talk about trust! Holy shit! But, when I asked Kacie if Shaun lets her shave his head, it turns out that her prefers to do it himself... out of fear! 

    Anyway, I am absolutely psyched to show you this speakeasy themed, Halloween day wedding, bridey! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Kacie and Shaun incorporated their love for booze (they are both bartenders) into their wedding, going back to the orgin of their profession with a 1920s speakeasy-themed wedding. Their guests wore FABULOUS vintage costumes, enjoyed the speciality cocktails (created by the B+G of course!) and smoked some serious cigars. Hell yeah!!! 

    Tee hee... Vintage nudie magazine! How fucking awesome is that??!!What a fantastic shot...Kacie, your dress!!!! OMG! Stunning.Besties.

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Easy Going, Martial Arts Lovin', Real Southern Wedding

    That's a hot pic. Seriously, I feel like I haven't seen very many wedding albums where I walk away saying, "that photograph is sexy." But, this one? Hot damn. Erika and Tim are HOT! Right? So, your homework assignment, bridey? Take a moment on your wedding day (ovbi with your hus), and take a few sexy photographs. Get excited! Okay... Moving past the sexy pics. I totally love this wedding. Not only are Erika and Tim hot and awesome, but it was super important to them that their wedding incorporated who they were as a couple and individually. You see, Erika could kick all of our asses because she has a black belt in Tae Know Do, and Tim is also a martial arts enthusiast. Just wait until you see the groom's cake!

    They really wanted their wedding to be laid back and simple. Erika said that, "I just want everyone to come and have a good time and be comfortable." and based on the photographs, I'd say that they succeeded. Living in Georgia, they wanted a venue that truly captured the south. Not that anybody would accuse them of being country by nature, but because several of their guests traveled from abroad to be there, they wanted them to experience a real southern wedding.

    I don't know this for sure, but I am guessing that these pics are in memory of a family members who have passed... A lovely way to remember without getting too sad.What a lovely first look!Great photograph! I LOVE the bridesmaids dresses!I love everything about this ceremony... It's rustically fabulous.The cuteness factor is almost too much.
