    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Same Shit, Different Bride

    Clearly some of you, brideys, just don't get it. Actually, you STILL don't get it because I've been trying to teach you how to avoid this behavior since BB's inception. You just go on your entitled way, copping your bullshit attitude with the people who are trying to help you. And, it's pissing me off. But, more than that, I'm getting frustrated and annoyed. With every five clients, there is always one who makes you question why you help people in the first place; why you still play in "the industry" and why you care so much about somebody else's wedding.

    Because it's the same shit, different bride. And, this time, it nearly through me over the fucking edge. Seriously, when I received her panicked message about how "her" venue had the audacity to host another party prior to her wedding, "and how could they do that?" and "there is no way there is going to be enough time for them to turn over the space to make my wedding perfect", I literally jumped up and down in frustration in my office. Nice mental picture, huh? BB, throwing a fit... And then, I became super grateful that I didn't answer the phone simply because she probably would have fired me for the tongue lashing I most likely would have spewed at her. Here's the thing, bridey. Based on her simple decor, minimal equipment and sheer number of guests, the venue could have booked twelve parties prior to her wedding, and it wouldn't have mattered. 

    The crazy thing? It all comes down to trust. Yup, it's a trust issue. Had this bride taken a step back and thought about the situation, she might have come to the realization that not only would I not let her down, but neither would the venue; an establishment who has been hosting events, parties and weddings for years. Because the one thing about those of us who have been around this industry for some time is that no piece of business is worth jeopardizing reputation and unleashing the wrath of a bride. Especially now with all of the outlets for public reviews (like Yelp!, etc.) and potential for a bride to chastise her vendors.

    Fantasy Friday ~ The Darker Side of of a Bride

    Motivated by a wedding he saw in Mexico, Jason, with Juice Beat Photography, was inspired to photograph a beautiful bride dressed in a black wedding gown, or what he refers to as The Dark Bride. And seriously, I’m obsessed! The wedding industry has seen quite a bit of transition away from the traditional white wedding gown, thank you Vera Wang, and has begun to show that the darker side of a bride can be pretty fucking awesome. I have nothing against tradition, but it’s always nice to break it too. And how better to break tradition than with a black wedding dress?

    When I saw the gorge bride up against a wall of graffiti rockin’ her jewel toned bouquet of flowers, I was captivated. I LOVE that Jason used an abandoned house complete with broken windows, old furniture and walls covered in graffiti for the shoot. Super creative and inspirational! Enjoy!

    WOW! The dress, the flowers, the blue eyes... Totally FAB!Holy shit with the flowers! Kinda channeling Cyndi Lauper in this photograph? Right?The jewel tones of the florals really stand out against the black wedding dress!Scary fab veil...Screw the black dress.... Let me slip into something more comfortable...GORGE! I LOVE this shoot!!

    Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Stunningly Romantic, Incredibly Beautiful Australian Wedding

    I can't even begin to compete with what Hilary Cam wrote about Phillipa and Anurag's Wedding. I just can't! I know my limits, bridey, and frankly, he will write it better because he was there! And what's even better? This is only Day 1 (of 2), the Western Ceremony... The Indian Ceremony is on it's way! Anyway, back to how great Hilary is... Seriously, just read the first line... "I feel like photographing this wedding changed me – made me see with fresh eyes how precious our families are, the importance of far away friendships and reminded me that marriage is more than loving an individual, it is also accepting and embracing their family, friends and culture.

    Philippa and Anurag met in Sydney, they now live in London but decided to have their destination wedding back in Australia at the magnificent Bendooley Estate in the Southern Highlands. This venue is overflowing with treasures, pockets of beautiful backdrops; lakes, vineyards, autumn leaves, rolling hills, golden fields and more stories then you could imagine. Philippa and Anurag’s wedding day was drenched with love, their love of music, travel, books and of course family and friends – many of their guests traveling across oceans to share in their day."

    OMG! Just look at those wild horses!!Super dapper Anurag!! Absolutely exquisite!"At one point Philippa was nearly hysterical from excitement “I can’t believe today is finally here!”This is probably one of my favorite shots ever!!!Love the programs and the delicious, refreshing pre-ceremony beverage."When Philippa walked down the aisle, we all witnessed a magical moment. Golden light glinting through the pine trees and autumn leaves falling around her. The ceremony was beautiful in so many ways, the location under the pines, the perfect weather after a cold week, the ceremony and the autumn colours.""But I think the most memorable moments was when surprise guest, Abby Dobson, took to the microphone and sang “All you need is love” from The Beatles. All the guests joined in and became her backup singers erupting into song.""Equally as beautiful was when Abby sang her hit “Even when I’m sleeping” – a favourite song of Anurag’s father, he just sat back and closed his eyes listening to the music overcome with emotion."

    You did it!!Um... Yeah... This is stunning!!! Soft and fabulous...

    The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ When Your Tacky Wedding Guests Cause a Stir

    Bridey, if you know me at all, then you know I'm not a big fan Valentine's Day. It made me feel like shit when I was single, and still manages to make me feel like shit (in a different kind of way) as a married woman. Right? So, when I began working with a couple, helping them to plan their Valentine's Day wedding, I was a bit apprehensive. Would my disdain for the holiday come through? Would I accidentally slip and accuse them of being cheesy for wanting their wedding on such an annoying holiday? Surprisingly, I kept my shit together during the planning process, and the wedding was amazingly beautiful. Black, red and silver (of course), with super FAB uplighting and decor, and several cool treats for the guests. So, what has me in a bit of a tizzy? The wedding guests!

    Yup! The fucking wedding guests! And it wasn't what happened during the wedding that pissed me off, it was what happened before and afterward that I find to be ridiculous! Three words... RED SOLO CUPS! Yup! Some of the guests were sitting in the lobby of this lovely hotel drinking out of Solo cups. OH.MY.GOD. Why? Why wouldn't they just head to the hotel bar and shut it down? Well, because these fuckers were to cheap to pay for the booze in the hotel bar. REALLY? And, then they were surprised and belligerent when they were asked to get rid of their cups? Dear God...

This is an amazing elopement with some super cool deets and ideas specifically to take care of their guests all while encapsulating the insanely deep connection between Britney and Jon.

Grab your guests, head to Las Vegas, get married at the Little White Wedding Chapel by an Elvis impersonator and have the time of your life! Right? Right! Bridey, if you feel like Britney, Jon and I are speaking to you through their completely awesome wedding, then just wait until you see the Save the Dates,  pink Cadillac and wedding day(s) itinerary and your decision to elope (to Vegas) will be made! Enjoy!Love this photograph, and I'm completely in LOVE with Britney's shoes!I mean... How fucking FAB is this???WOW! Britney, you are truly beautiful! Love how you're rockin' the bright red lipstick! Totally a girl after my own heart!Holy shit. That's an incredible dress!Awwwwww.....Such a cool pic!Yup! There's an ass behind them. And you know what? I kinda love it!
