    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Diana & Kyle's Superhero Wedding!!!!

    Remember the super kickass superhero engagement shoot I posted last month? Well, I told Jules, their photographer, that I just HAD to post their wedding, and... here it is!!!! I seriously could not be more excited to share these fucking FAB pics with you, bridey. I mean... They are absolutely exceptional! Seriously, wait until you see how bright and plain ol' cool this wedding is. Diana and Kyle did a phenomenal job creating a day that represents who they are, what they love and their love for each other. 

    Not only is this wedding so fucking cool, but it's original and personal and fun. Bridey, there is no way you're not going to want to see these pictures over and over again. I mean... there is so much inspiration here (superhero and otherwise), that you just might fall over. But, don't worry, I'm sure somebody will swoop in and save you from hitting your head...

    This pic of Diana and one of her bridesmaids literally made me laugh out loud!Loving all of the color! The dresses, the bouquets, the hair pieces!!! OH MY!!Need a something blue? Never fear (see what I did? Superhero reference...), just get a blue mani or pedi!These are hilarious!!!Usually the hus ends up holding the purse. I love that Kyle is holding the shoes!Who needs a flower girl when you have a GLITTER GIRL?Superhero kiss for sure. Check out Diana's cuffs!Fuck yeah! Oh wait... Ring fingers!

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Tipping... Honestly? It's Always Expected and Always Appreciated

    As I come off of my high from the weekend filled with super successful events, I am even more elated because this girl is on her way to go get herself some absolutely not needed new shoes. Why? Well, because first of all, I am awesome, but more importantly because I got a fat tip from one of my clients. Did I expect it? Sure did. But, even though I expected a tip doesn't always mean that'll I receive one, regardless of how much my client "loves me, and couldn't get through it without me." Call me an asshole, but it's true. I expected and this time I received. 

    Sounds terrible, right? Yeah, I know it does, but I also know that no matter how much time and energy I put into planning every wedding and event, I don't get paid nearly enough. None of your wedding vendors do, bridey. Because all of us are focused on staying competitive (with each other), even if it means taking a hit financially. And quite frankly, usually the breakdown in hours spent ensuring your wedding day is going to be fucking sensational, is about that of an hourly employee at McDonald's. Actually, I bet in some cases, they make more dough then we do. Because, never mind how much we charge, nine times out of ten you're always going to get more than you paid for... It's just the nature of the the industry. We say "yes" a hell of a lot more than any other industry.

    Bridey, I have written quite a bit about tipping your wedding vendors, and have also had guest bloggers write about tipping your wedding vendors. Bottom line? TIP YOUR FUCKING WEDDING VENDORS.

    Fantasy Friday ~ A Spooky, Beautiful Halloween Themed 10th Anniversary Rock the Dress Session

    Seriously, how fucked up are those baby heads? Right? Fucked, but awesome... I love this shoot. I think it's cool and deranged all at the same time. This shoot was a collaboration between Michelle & Matthew, who wanted to have a Halloween themed 10th Anniversary Rock the Dress session, and Laura (of Gathered Events, LLC) and Kim (of Kim Truelove Photography) who were the brainchildren behind this fabulously unique, styled shoot. You know, my ten year anniversary is next month (crazy, but true), and maybe, I'll just have to reach out to Kim and Laura to put together a fabulously fucked shoot for me too...

    Kim says it perfectly: "In the gorgeous woods behind the historic Highland Manor in Apopka, FL, we created this Halloween-styled scene pulling inspiration from antique gothic décor and the always creative, Tim Burton. We wanted to create a scene that was lush and beautiful, with a gothic and creepy twist. We called it “Living meets the Dead…” 

    Kim: "These fresh blooms, paired with unexpected elements like animal skins and skulls, helped us create the beautiful and spooky scene."I am OBSESSED with these roses. OB SESS ED!!!Vintage baby doll heads... STRANGE.Holy shit with the skull! OMG. OMG. OMG. That bitch is so spooky!Love the bouquet and the striped ribbon!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ From the Peace Corps All the Way to Brooklyn

    This is an absolutely incredible wedding filled with such amazing energy and love, so if tears of joy aren't streaming down your face by the end of this post, then something is wrong with you! Just kidding. I was trying to be super dramatic (must be the cold medicine), and it's just not me. Anyway, Ericka and Emily met while serving in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia. I mean, shit... I met my hus in a bar (and was pretty proud of how strong we're still going), and these two meet in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia? Whoa. Talk about meant to be...

    Anyway... From the Peace Corps all the way to Brooklyn. That's where E&E are currently residing. And on beautiful fall day, they exchanged vows by the lake in Prospect Park. Take a look...

    I think I would look really cute in suspenders. Seriously. I think I need some.
    I'm sorry, but these peeps are cool! 
    OMG. That headpiece!
    Wait for it... Okay! Look down!!! 
    It really doesn't get much cuter!
    The brides and their party took in the colorful murals in the neighborhood.
    Such a fun bridal party!
    Simply in LOVE with the bouquets!!
    Joy. That's adulterated joy.

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't Go Breaking Our Hearts or Busting Our Balls

    This post is tough because I TOTALLY get it. I really do. I get it because I deal with it EVERY.FUCKING.DAY. And, I'm telling you that I get it before I even explain what the hell "it" is JUST to cover my ass... So, here it goes. Bridey, shit is going to change. Your wedding plans are going to change. Your guest list will go up and down eighteen fucking times based on family dynamics or lack of guest list control (usually because of your mom BTW...). Your flowers will change a bazillion times based on personal preference, availability and design. Your wedding dress will be taken in and out or scraped completely, but the most irritating, never ending change that for some reason is expected to be "no big deal"? Guess... Duh, look up!

    The menu. Bridey, there comes a point when it is up to you to get your shit together, and simply be done with your menu. The most annoying thing in the whole wide world is a bride who continually changes her menu all the way down to the week before her wedding. Be it the passed hors d'oeuvres, stations during the cocktail hour or even the damn salad before entree, it's coo coo. Many chefs, venues and caterers will try to accommodate (particularly if your numbers go UP), but there comes a time when it's just not okay to keep changing your fucking mind. When you're a week away from your wedding, all anybody in "the industry" cares about is the number of guests and how many of each...

    So you saw "something really cool" at an event you were at last week. Forget about it. Somebody suggested "that you ought to do blah, blah, blah..." FORGET ABOUT IT! Seriously, don't go busting balls at the venue or with your caterer because now that stupid Philly cheese steak egg roll is "a must".
