Fantasy Friday ~ When Brooklyn Goes a L'il Bit Country... A Beautiful, Mountainy, Ranch Wedding!

Amy and Cameron? New Yorkers! Yup! They are living in Brooklyn and had their wedding at a ranch in Nevada! Talk about a destination wedding!! Right? Why? Well, because Amy is originally from the area, and it has become special to Cameron too. And, why the fuck not? Why not have your wedding on a mountain range? If the area is meaningful to the B+G, and the wedding is about them as a couple, then how FABULOUS (and daring) are they for selecting this cool venue? I bet the New Yorkers were a little out of their element! 

Bridey, when asked what advice Amy had for other brides, she said something that totally resonated with me (and SEVERAL brides who I've worked with in the past)... She said, "Though we were engaged in December and married in November, we didn't decide on the city of our wedding until about five months out. Keeping the planning window short was a huge blessing. No one needs to obsess about details for longer." Can I get a HELL YES!!! Bridey, sometimes this isn't always possible, but if you can do it, then DO IT! Enjoy the engagement, enjoy each other, and try to enjoy the planning! But, if nothing else, then please enjoy the details of this BEAUTIFUL wedding!!Cow...
WOW! Such a beautiful wedding dress!!
Um. Yes, please! Love the shoes, Amy!
Amy: The ceremony began with a welcome from Cameron's dear friend Zack, and my brother gave a blessing that captured the room. Pastor Pat Mecham administered the vows--first for our family, asking them to promise their support of our marriage, and then for us. We wrote our own vows and repeated the same promises to one another. 
One of my fave pics! SO super candid!!
Stunning.
I'm guessing that holding a pitchfork would probably be too much for these New Yorkers! 
FABULOUS escort cards!! 
Wow. Just wow!
Amy: "We shipped Junior's New York Cheesecake from Brooklyn to Elko. It's the best cheesecake in New York and was a slice of the city at our country wedding."
I love that Amy didn't have any bridesmaids... Amy: "Just my sister. It was important to us to have our family surround us on our wedding day. Cameron's brother was his best man."
Clearly, everybody is having a great time!
Thank you Amy and Cameron for sharing your kickass wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Super Colorful, Super Fabulous, Amazing Rainbow Wedding, Rockin' Some Serious Pride! YEAH!

OMG. Are you fucking falling over right now, bridey? Seriously, just look at this incredible ceremony setup. LOOK! Yes, I am totally yelling at you, but that's simply because I am 100% OBSESSED with Steven and Andrew's wedding. It's RAINBOW!!! And, I love rainbows... So much so, that in 2013, I put together a post called The Rainbow Connection. I thought was pretty fucking awesome, but now that I have had the privilege of sharing this with you, I realized that it hardly holds a candle to Steven and Andrew's kickass wedding! 

Aside from all of the colorful deets (quite literally), I love that these two groom's are waving the rainbow flag, HIGH (well, they're signing it instead of a guest book!)!!! I mean... Love is love... Marry whoever the fuck you want. Love whoever you want. And be whoever you want! Now, go love this wedding like I did! (If you want to see Steven and Andrew's engagement shoot, and learn more about their story, click here.)
Woot! Woot!
Andrew, you are so ADORABLE! Like... OMFG!
Awwwww..... So so so cute!!
Steven... Such a handsome pic!!
Like... OMG with the ceremony space!!
Doves. That's all.
The masks! WHOA!!! A teeny, tiny bit Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut, but I love it!
Amazing! Check out the bow tie!
Tanner.
Rascal.
Fabulous wedding favors!
AWESOME!!!
Cheers!!

Fantasy Friday ~ An Intimate, Vintage Inspired Tennessee Wedding

Bridey, do you know what the most suggested piece of advice is from one bride to another? Have fun on your wedding day! Relax! Enjoy every second. Well, that's exactly what Becky and Devin did... They enjoyed every.single.second. And, know what? It totally shows in the photographs! I mean... There is so much to love about this intimate, vintage inspired wedding, that I hardly know where to begin because I love all of the intricate details. Seriously, the deets are so meaty and delicious that I can't stand it! Just wait until you see the stunning, hand crafted bouquets, the wedding dresses, the gentlemen attire, etc.!! 

The other super cool part of Becky and Devni's wedding? Well, the B+G have two gorgeous little girls, and they did an incredible job of making these beauties a huge part of their ceremony. After all, a wedding is about a union of two people, right? And, if these two people have two other people together, then everybody should be involved, right? RIGHT!! Anyway... Enjoy!!
LOVE. Like... So beautiful and clever.
That's the B+G and their two adorable little girls!
Couldn't you see this pic in your mom's wedding album?
I can't... It's just too good! Becky, your bouquet is really amazing!
SHUT the front door...
A single tear just rolled down my cheek...
Okay... A few more tears... Whhaaaa? What can I say? This one totally got to me!
Such a cool group shot!
Can you tell that Becky is a model? Definitely owning these photographs! And, Devin? You're pretty easy on the eyes too!  Some of my fave wedding pics!!
So simple and pretty. Know what? It's fucking red velvet too! Oh yeah! 
Too cute!
Hi. Yum!
And now it's time for a costume change. WOW!!
LOVE IT!
Becky, Devin... Thank you for sharing your truly beautiful and moving wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Kickass, Rock 'N' Roll, Destination Wedding

Are you totally dying over this photograph? I mean... The kiss with the hands (OMG...So romantic!), the smiling bride as she kisses her groom, the tat, the sky?? Right? I love that this is real. You know what I mean, bridey? A real wedding photograph. Not a styled shoot. Not a magazine spread. A real, fucking cool wedding photograph! And, you know what? There are more where that came from! Because Lindsay and Dave are just that cool, so obvi their wedding is going to be cool too!

The other thing that makes this wedding stand out to me is that the B+G are from Canada and decided to host a destination wedding in Mexico. Not only that, but these two crazy kids, and their wedding, are rockin' a whole bunch of red. Yup! RED! Everything from Lindsay's wedding dress, to Dave's bow tie to the flowers to the chairs and more! Okay, enough out of me! Time for you to go enjoy this kickass, rock 'n' roll, destination wedding!
I LOVE the red. Like, seriously LOVE the super bright red!
I always show the girls getting ready before the guys, so today, I thought I would show the boys first!
Lindsay got dressed by herself and then surprised her bridesmaids... So fun!
That bouquet is FAB!!
Simply stunning. I am completely obsessed with the deep red décor against the blue ocean.
Love how the guys are all wearing different bow ties. So cool!
Probably one of may favorite pics to grace the "pages" of Bitchless Bride.
Lindsay, you look amazing! Like, OMFG amazing!
You know what they always say... A couple with matching shoes...
Def going to steal this idea from the B+G! 
Apparently, after the first dance, the music got loud, the people up and the dancing got crazy! 
Thank you for sharing your cool destination wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ Destination... Las Vegas! A Fun-Filled, Getting Down on the Dance Floor, Party Bus Riding, Las Vegas Wedding!

Bridey, if you know me at all, then you know I love Las Vegas. I got married there, I gamble there, and I do bad things there! Just kidding! Well... Anyway, it's not about me... It's about the B+G,  Kate & Jake. They said "I do" at the Las Vegas Country Club, and considering that neither the bride or groom are from Vegas, it was a destination wedding! The best part? In true Vegas fashion, all of the wedding guests were taken to the Las Vegas sign in a wild party bus ride for a final photo. OMG! Right?

The lowdown on Kate and Jake? Well, they met at a bar (just like my hus and me!). Jake had just gotten back from a tour in Spain, and needed a cocktail. Kate saw Jake from across the bar, and just had to say "hello", and the rest is history! Bridey, tons of inspiration in this FAB destination wedding! Enjoy!

Could ya bust? That's Carly's (the B+G's daughter) amazing dress!
OMG!!! SO cute! (And, I want to find me a pair!)
Cheers!
Awwwwwww....
Damn girl. GORGE!
HAHA!
Wow. She's adorable! I love her transportation, too!
Easy peasy.
So beautiful!
Stunning cake, and looks tasty too!
Look how much fun everybody is having!!!
Such a cool shot!

Fantasy Friday ~ Waterfalls, Ruins, and the Great Outdoors... It's Rustically Fantastic!!

Doesn't the background look like an abandoned castle that Tanner and Rebecca are "dipping" in? Or, is my Game of Thrones-like imagination is getting the best of me? Either way, it's fantastic! Right? And, there are many, many more photographs like this one that will inspire you captured within this rustically fantastic wedding. I mean... There are just SO many details that I adore, I hardly know where to begin!

For instance... The waterfall. It's incredible! And, it serves as a beautiful backdrop during the ceremony. Seriously... if we're honest, not many people can say that they were married with a waterfall glistening in behind the scenes, right?! Right! Well, Rebecca and Tanner can! Then there's Rebecca's heavenly wedding gown (OMG!), the first look, the delectable dessert table, the barn & décor, and the truly captivating photographs taken by Krisandra Evans Photography. Bride, go! Go scroll, and get inspired!
Totally picturing the FAB photog laying on the floor underneath this stunning dress to capture this shot!!
Nice bling!!
A 'lil whiskey to get things started? Yes, please!
I think it's fabulous how Rebecca is sneaking up the stairs for the first look!
OMG! Totlly LOVE you guys! 
WOW. Amazing dress. Amazing bouquet. Amazing shot.
There's that castle again!
The bridal party definitely has a good time together, that's for sure!!
Look closely at the "wedding" sign... Yeah, it's a bedpost! L.O.V.E.
So fun! Still with the castle! (Okay, okay! I'll get over it! But, I love it so much!)
Tanner, you happen to be a great "dipper". Again, the veil shot and this one are fucking FAB!
So, so, so AWES!
YUMMY! 
Sometimes I feel like cookies are totally underrated! They should grace many more dessert tables!
Cheers! Thank you for sharing your rustically fantastic wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ ***FLASHBACK*** Boho Wedding Inspo

I mean... I barely have the words for this styled shoot. It's colorful, edgy, and plain ol' awesome! There is so much damn eye candy in this post that you'll probably get a cavity by the time you're done browsing. OMG. So sorry for the awful joke, but, I totally couldn't help it!! Seriously, I cannot stop looking at all of the jewelry, feathers, dresses, etc.!

Bridey, if you need some boho bride inspo, look no further. Shit. What is wrong with me? It's just one bad cliche after another! I swear I'm not drunk... Just excited to share this one with you. 

Are you as in love with the flower crown as I am? Or what about all of her amazing jewels?!!Please. Please, bridey... Jump out of the box, and go crazy! For real, this could be you... on your wedding day... on the beach... looking insanely phenomenal! SHUT UP!OMG... A MAZ ING!!!I've been so obsessed with the clothes, jewels, feathers, etc. that I forgot to mention her kickass makeup! Holy crap! LOVE IT!I mean... WHOA!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Vintage, Steampunk Elopement... Quite Simply, a Very Cool Styled Shoot

I love this styled shoot. Like, everything about it! I love the "models" (they are girlfriend and boyfriend), I love the fantastic DIY elements, I love the creative photography... OMG! I really love everything about this shoot! Seriously, it's just so fun and clever! And, in typical BB form, I'm kind of obsessed with the cake. It's beautiful, and I found myself wishing for a fork so that I could dig in... Anyway, I love this post so much that I am going to let Veronica Rose of Roni Rose Photography tell you more about it the inspiration which lead to such fabulousness. (PS - Totally love how Roni starts the convo!!)

RRP: "Every year I like to set up a styled shoot that reflects what the modern wedding world has become; A place for personal expression rather than a traditional template that needs to be followed. I immediately had Serena and Kent in mind as models. Serena is my tattoo artist. She is one of the most artistic people I know. My inked skin is a testament to that. During our sessions together she's spoken so fondly of her boyfriend Matt. I knew immediately that I'd love him. Matt is a chef, and one of the sweetest men I've ever met."
RRP: "Our vision for the shoots we do are based around trying to create an artistic expression of the couple, and they made that so easy for us. These two just ooze joy and love! I also like to keep our styled shoots in the realm of attainability, rather than a large production that would be difficult to achieve during an actual elopement, so much of what you see is a DIY by yours truly."
Serena, you look beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE your red lipstick!!!
RRP: ..."the boutineer is made out of some of our old film negatives and flash bulbs."
I think it's fair to say that the camera likes Matt. And, a chef too? Oh dear God! Serena, you're a lucky girl! 
Let's take this outside...
This is creepy awesome!
So cool!
RRP: "I used a pair of ape hanger handle bars to create an alter."
Right? Doesn't that cake just scream, "GET A FORK!!"?
Thank you Roni, for sharing such a kickass shoot with Bitchless Bride! I think we are all much cooler now.

Fantasy Friday ~ An Extravagant, Super Glitzy, Truly Stunning Styled Shoot

This striking styled shoot captures the elegance and opulence of an enchanting winter wedding, (yes, I know it's supposedly spring), but, you know what? I don't care! It's so fabulous and so glamorous, and frankly, it feels like fucking winter on the East coast, so why not post a GORGEOUS shoot to inspire my winter brides?!! Right? Anyway, this really is delicious. It's succulent and juicy, and easy on the eyes. And, OMG! Just wait until you see that stunning Ysa Makino wedding dress up close. You're totally going to freak!

Bridey, if you can incorporate any of these details into your wedding, it will be superb! Perhaps you'd like to have the amazing dessert bar with the monogrammed cookies, or a glitterly wedding cake, or even the shimmrey wedding dress... Whatever it may be, bridey, this shoot really is something to behold! Enjoy!
I love the black and white invites!
One day (and probably soon), I am going to own those shoes!
Um. WOW!
So beautiful... Don't worry... There's more!!
So glittery and gold! LOVE IT!
Like... STFU with the dress... Right? I LOVE everything about it! I want to wear it right now!
Even the cake is sparkling at us!
The rose on the top of the cake is perfect finishing touch!
Gimme! Gimme!
OMG! So happy to share this truly amazing styled shoot on Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Stunning, Bohemian Brunch Inspired, Italian Villa Inspired, Super Romantic, Styled Shoot

I know it's just the way the sun is hitting her face, but I love how it appears as though the bride has two different colored eyes (and like she's rockin' some seriously blue eyeliner!). SO fabulous! And, even though I know they're models, they really make a super hot couple! Right? And that flower crown she's wearing is absolutely spectacular!

Anyway, bridey, if you're looking for some kickass wedding inspiration, be it a lovely bohemian brunch (with a delicious looking pancake wedding cake!!), Italian villa or undoubtedly romantic, then you've just hit the mother load. This styled shoot is just cool. Like, really, really cool with amazing details that are so good, you'll want to eat them!
That invitation is exceptional! I love the chalkboardy feel, and the font!
Who doesn't love a sunflower? Exquisite bouquet!
Holy WOW!
How cool would it be to actually sit and dine at this table celebrating a marriage?!!
Okay. I think it's fair to say that I have a crush on the bride. Lovin' the makeup!!
My mouth seriously just watered! I may have to go make some pancakes!!
Don't cut it! Just pour the syrup together!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Super Glitzy, Super Fabulous, Same Sex Wedding

I can't! The top hats are too much! Right? Fucking love them!! And Francisco's veil? OMotherFuckingG! Amazing! But, it's the tuxedos that has me completely in awe... Francisco is wearing a silver Versace tux and Chris is wearing a sequined tux from Billionaire Italian Couture! I mean... WOW! And, just wait until you see their matching shoes! Truly FAB!!! Like, so fab, that I think I may need to own them immediately!

So, after crossing paths for years, these two finally decided that they needed to go on a date. And thank goodness they did or else I wouldn't have this truly glitzy, truly glamorous mansion wedding to share with you today. Oh! And, that life wouldn't be the same for them without each other! Bridey, there is so much inspiration for you to savor that I can't wait for you to scroll! So, enjoy!
I mean.... OMG! WOW!
Amazing bouquet!!!
Lovin' all of the bling!!
It really doesn't get much cuter!!

Fantasy Friday ~ An Elegant, Timeless and Classic Melbourne Wedding with a Touch of Glamour

Meet Barbie and Ken. Just kidding! And, Madeleine and Luke aren't really dolls. But, seriously... They are both so easy on the eyes that I would have believed Silvia of Blumenthal Photography if she told me she was submitting Barbie and Ken's wedding. True story. Right? I mean, all Luke is missing is that twinkle on his tooth. Anyway... I'm going to let the B+G take it away. Because, bridey, not only are the details of this gorgeous Melbourne wedding fucking incredible (like IN CRED IBLE), but I love their love story and advice to future brides (and grooms) too. 

Blumenthal Photography: What’s your love story? How did you meet originally and get together?Luke and I are high school sweethearts! We’ve had eyes on each other since we were 15 years old and we’re each other’s best friends, we know absolutely everything about each other and we’ve shared so many amazing memories growing up together. I remember sitting in class with him (he was always the class clown) and he would just make me laugh so much! I suppose nothing much has changed though. To this day, I don’t go a day without him putting me in hysterics. 

Blumenthal Photography: How did you choose your dress?: I knew that I wanted to have some input when designing my gown. I had a really clear picture of what I wanted so I didn’t want to buy a gown off the rack. Luckily, I found Jane Hill and it seemed like we were absolutely perfect for each other! She loved my ideas for the dress and I also completely agreed with all of her input. It was my idea for the extravagant and billowing pleating at the bottom but Jane recommended that we make the bottom pleats completely detachable and this was the most perfect idea because I was actually able to move and dance at the reception!  

Blumenthal Photography: What made the day really special and personal to you?: My bridesmaids were absolute angels and really made sure that everything went smoothly! I literally did not stress throughout the whole day because of how well they handled everything. My mum and sisters kept me sane and calm the whole day so I could just enjoy myself. My mum also made the day so special for me. In the morning, whilst I was getting ready, her and dad gave me a little white box. Inside were the most beautiful pair of earrings I’ve ever seen. I want to give them to my little girl on her wedding day, and hopefully this can be a new tradition for my own family. 

I am DY ING over Madeleine's dress! And, I LOVE how the bottom pleats are completely detachable! No need for bustling, and super sexy!
Blumenthal Photography: How did the proposal go?: We absolutely love travelling and being in the outdoors, and we were in Bali when the proposal happened. I remember he took me down to the beach for a sunset stroll and I didn’t really think much of it. It was a gorgeous evening as well; the weather could not have been more perfect! The tide was out and the sun was almost setting behind the water and that’s when he surprised me by getting down on one knee and taking something out of his pocket. It completely caught me off guard! I had tears welling up in my eyes the whole time, and even now when I look back on it I can’t help but tear up a little. 

Blumenthal Photography: What was important to you about your wedding? What were your priorities from the very beginning?: The most important thing to us was having a wedding that would survive through the decades. We wanted a ceremony where we could look back on the photos in years’ time and not cringe at any of our choices from the wedding dress to the décor! Hence why we kept the theme timeless and classic. I really think that when we’re flipping through our wedding album, we’ll be able to look back on these photos and still adore them! 

Amazing photo...
Am I wrong? Totally Barbie and Ken! I don't know if I am jealous or if I want to be married to them.

Fantasy Friday ~ A Saucy, Playful Downtown Engagement Shoot

I don't know if you've noticed, but I don't share a tremendous amount of engagement shoots on Bitchless Bride. It's not because I don't like them, I do, and I think they are fun and important, but frankly, they all seem to blend into one another. So, when I see a shoot that resonates with me like this one did, then I feel an overwhelming urge to share it it with you, bridey.

The best part of this shoot? Apparently, Joy and Max are fucking funny. Like, so funny that their photographer, Dana of EarthMark Photography, said that, "Seriously, work should not be allowed to be this fun." OMG... If ONLY all brides (and grooms) were this fun and easy to work with! And after the shoot, they dined at a delishious BBQ joint and spilt a pack of Strongbow Cider. I mean... Enjoy this FAB engagement shoot!

Joy! I'm dying over your FAB blue hair with the hot pink surprises!
I love how they are totally cracking up during the shoot!
Such a romantic shot!
Love the dress and the tats!
What are you whispering into her ear, Max? Joy's totally blushing!!!
Thank you for sharing your frolicsome and lovely engagement shoot with Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Colorful New Year's Eve Wedding with Tons of Music, Glam and Plenty of Hot Pink!

This fabulous winter wedding just made it into publication on Bitchless Bride. I mean... Technically, it's still winter which is why I posted it, but it feels more like spring. Seriously, I had a whole other plan for today, but when I saw this smashing wedding submission, I had to share it with you, bridey, and immediately! Plus, I heard that Shannen and Craig were incredibly cool to work with, and based on the pics, it's quite obvious.

And, BTW... Can we just talk about how Craig is wearing a fucking hot pink vest and bow tie, and owning it! Right? Dude looks fantastic, and I love it! And, I think I love him! Bridey, there are piles and piles of inspiration strewn throughout Shannen and Craig's wedding. OMG, just wait until you see the centerpieces! Holy shit! And the cake... WOW! I think you'll see why I couldn't wait until next winter to post this wedding. You're welcome. 
If I owned those shoes (or when I own these shoes!), I would wear them every day!
Um. Bling anybody?
That dress is extraordinary!
See what I mean? Craig is 100% OWNING the hot pink vest and bow tie! 
Shannen, that's a damn sexy pic!
Fantastic shot!
It was 11 degrees outside when they took these photographs!
This could have been taken in the 1920s, right?
See the tambourines at the base of candelabra? They were for the guests to bring onto the dance floor when the party started! How cool is that?
This cake is so fucking fabulous! Right? I am totally in love with the hot pink flower! IN LOVE! And, the textures are simply astonishing!
Clearly a passionately romantic couple!!
Thank you for sharing your kickass wedding with Bitchless Bride! I love everything about your wedding day, and I think I even love you (both) too...

Fantasy Friday ~ Grandma the Pimp! Oh! And a Beautiful Destination Wedding with Stunning Post Wedding Pics!

Does that say "Grandma the pimp"? Yup! It sure does! Christa and Nicolas met because the bride's grandmother is a longtime friend of the groom's parents. Upon meeting Nicolas at a party, Grandma knew immediately that Christa would connect with Nicholas. And when the B finally met the G, they fell in love! I mean... How cool is that??!! And, as crass as I can sometimes be, GRANDMA named herself the pimp, not me! Seriously, I think I'd get along well with Grandma!

Outside of their unique and fun story, Christa and Nicolas threw a fabulous destination wedding! I'm loving the simple and stunning details, I'm obsessed with Christa's dress (and frankly, her great ass... Don't judge me, you'll see!), and I'm psyched to see how the B+G spent the day after their wedding. Enjoy this fun and FAB wedding!
Clearly, these 'maids have a great time together!!
Remember how I said Christa had a great ass? See what I mean? A GOR GE OUS wedding dress to go with her fabulous ass!
Is he pulling on his beard?
Proud papa!
Now, who do you think is in the top left corner weeping with joy? 
Now, THAT'S a photo booth!
Great final wedding day pic!! Now, get ready for a glimpse into the day after!
Um, not a bad way to spend the day after your wedding, right?
Wedding rings!!!
That's hot (Holy fuck! Did I just quote Paris Hilton? Sorry!)!

Fantasy Friday ~ ***Flashback*** A Graffiti Inspired Shoot

I just died and went to awesome heaven. Seriously, I am completely blown away by these incredibly beautiful, incredibly creative photographs. So, when I saw this in my inbox, I was thrilled. It was like a mixture of two of my favorite things... Graffiti and weddings. Bridey, please... ENJOY this fucking fabulously creative, amazingly gorgeous photo shoot... I know I did.

Notes from the submission: Shot at the Crewest Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, this themed shoot was a collaboration between Best Coast Photo and Orange Blossom Special Events inspired by the abundance of colorful graffiti and street art in areas like Venice Beach and throughout Los Angeles. Although derived from street art, we wanted to create a look that at once edgy and urban, yet modern and sophisticated. A fantastic team was assembled to bring together all of the elements, which included a custom-made graffiti cake by the amazing Santa Monica'sVanilla Bake Shop, details by Mr. Caballero Creative and a gorgeous dress by Miss Tashina.

I cannot get over the shoes! Talk about something blue? Right? They are a perfect compliment to this absolutely SICK wedding dress.

Like... I know they're models, but can they get any hotter? Or more cool? I think not.

Check out that cool bow tie!

I love the mix of graffiti with the formal place setting...

I am melting over this cake. Forever ago, I used to make wedding cakes, and I cannot get over the simplicity and depth of this truly original, amazingly cool cake! I mean it... This is definitely going on my cake Pinterest board...

Oh my God! Look how unique and fantastic that vase is? It's so simple, but so cool because of its simplicity.

I mean... LOOK how fucking cool they are? I am obsessed with this shoot!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ An Amazing Avenger Themed, Seriously Kickass, Mostly Etsy, Indiana Wedding

I probably should have called this, "A Kickass Esty Wedding Rockin' an Avenger Theme". Aside from the cake (although some elements of the cake are via Etsy!), the venue and the photographer, I think it's safe to say that pretty much everything else was the DIY fabulousness of the bride + Etsy. I mean... WOW! If you're that kind of girl, then you are officially my superhero! Although, I totally got my hus this ('cause I'm super classy) for Valentine's Day, and it's obvi from Etsy! But, that's about as far as I go. That said, I'm wholeheartedly impressed with Erica and James' theme and creativeness! Just wait until you scroll, bridey. This wedding is really pretty amazing.

But, before you scroll, can we just talk about the bridesmaids shoes? They're wearing COMIC BOOK SHOES! Which of course the bride MADE (Hold please... Can I get a,"holy shit!"?), not too mention the fucking FAB bridal bouquet that Erica also made... OMG. Anyway... I could blab on and on (must be the booze)... So, go! Enjoy this cool, fun and exceptionally awesome wedding of Erica and James!

STFU! Love!!! Yeah... Comic book shoes!! WOW! 
Ummmmm. HOLY.FUCKING.SHIT. That's incredible!!! WOW! A bouquet made out of comic books, with a l'il glitz and glam!
OMG. You have no idea how good this looks to me right now.
That's one hell of a boutonniere! Super impressive!
Bridesmaids, bouquets and books! Oh, and Avengers necklaces that Erica gave her 'maids too! 
Can we just talk about how the groomsmen are wearing vests that are all a different color? I mean... I get it...  Colors to represent Iron Man, Hawkeye, Thor, Hulk and Captain America, but it's also quite awesome!
How cool is that?
Such a FAB idea! 
That cake! It's "superhuman". Sorry, couldn't help it! 
Greatest shot ever! Although, I woudn't want to throw that GORGE bouquet! 
Oh wait! THIS is the best shot ever!!
Thank you Erica and James for sharing your cool and awesome wedding with Bitchless Bride!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem... A Laid Back, Beautiful, Beach Wedding in Mexico

"No frills or fancy things." Said no bride ever... Right??? But, Samantha did!! I know, I love her already! She and Joaquin strayed from a traditional wedding reception and opted for a lovely, intimate dinner with friends and family to celebrate their nuptials. Once everybody filled their bellies with delicious food and drink, they moved the party to Gitano for some music and dancing. How fun is that?? As a couple who love to travel and drink amazing wine, sounds like the perfect evening! Oh, a cool l'il side note? Their wedding day was the anniversary of the day they met four years earlier. I mean... 

Samantha and Joaquin wanted a wedding that was casual and comfortable. As a couple who truly compliment each other, Joaquin is quite the joker, and Samantha is a bit more serious, their wedding captured who they are as a couple without the stress or bullshit of conventional wedding planning. And these two? Didn't grow up in Mexico... This was a destination wedding! Joaquin grew up in Milwaukee and Samantha grew up in a small town in Minnesota. Didn't see that coming, did you? Neither did I which totally makes me love them even more!! Such great inspiration in this beautiful wedding! Enjoy!

Holy shit would I love to be there RIGHT NOW!!! Looks beautiful!

Love this pic of Samantha!
TOTALLY obsessed with Samantha's dress. You look gorgeous!!!
Joaquin, you're looking quite dapper!
I could have designed this card myself... 
When you're getting married on the beach, shoes are definitely optional! Those anklets? Fantastic!!!
Hi. WOW.
Samantha, Joaquin. You're a damn sexy couple.
Seriously, all I see are the sparks flying!
Love. Love. Love.
A pre-cocktail, cocktail? Don't mind if I do!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Totally FAB, Industrial Glam Styled Shoot

If I were to look inward, I would definitely see a few themes coursing through my veins. One, I am totally in a Kate Spade place. My biz card holder is KS and says "let's do lunch", (they didn't have one that said, "let's do booze"), I have been rockin' some serious KS accessories, and I've been dancing around in some glittery KS shoes. And, including this fucking KICK ASS Kate Spade, industrial glam shoot, this is my second KS themed something posted in the last week... The other theme? I'm homesick for Chicago. Seriously, this month alone, I have posted three Chicago weddings. Perhaps it's because I am drawn to the beauty of the city or maybe it's coincidence, but either way... That's what's going on with me.

Anyway, there is so much color, and texture and pure electricity captured this shoot that I really won't be able to give it justice unless I shut up and let you start scrolling. I can't even tell you my favorite aspect of these pics because every.single.photograph is sensational. I mean, bridey... Talk about inspiration! Enjoy this one because it's FABULOUS!WOW! These invitations are from Wedding Paper Divas! Love the stripes!!
Can I get an OMFG? WOW! Oh my fucking God! The dress, the shoes, the textures! OH MY!
I cannot get over this bouquet! So gorgeous!
Again with the stripes! SO awesome! And, I love the cumberbund!!!
I seriously don't know who's prettier!
I love the rawness of the space combined with elegance of the chairs...
STUN NING table! LOVE the gold cloth!! And the pink! And the MR. & MRS. I just love the whole thing!
I am a stripes fanatic (you should see my closet, probably just like Kate Spade!), and the table runner is so amazing!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Kickass, Kate Spade Inspired Bridal Shower!! OMFG!!!

Holy shit, bridey. Just wait! This is the only bridal shower I have ever posted on Bitchless Bride (aside from this styled shoot), and it's awesome! Um, it's Kate Spade inspired so OF COURSE it's going to be awesome! And, you know what? It better be awesome. Because the bride, Stacy? Well, she and her best friend own a wedding rental shop. Yeah... So, if it sucked, then it would make everybody in the hospitality industry look bad.

Bridey, if your 'maids are going to throw you a bridal shower, then direct them to this post for inspiration! I mean, the food, the décor, and even the bridal shower BINGO are amazing! Seriously, there are so many little details to revel in encapsulated in this post, that I just had to share it with you. Enjoy!!!
Lovin' the black balloons and the girls holding hands...
Fucking FABULOUS favor!!! Gimmie!!
I've mentioned how much I love a sequined cloth, and this gold cloth is totally getting me all hot and bothered! 
Hello mimosa bar, I think I love you.
These FAB cookies were made by the bride's soon to be sister-in-law! WOW!
Oh! And the naked cake was made by her soon to be mother-in-law! This girl is certainly marrying into a "sweet" family. Sorry... It was there, and I took it! 
OMG. See the tray of bacon? Mine!
STFU. Mini pancakes with pom poms!!
Love the shoes, and I love the Kate Spade inspired "Bridal Bingo"!
Note the nail polish, watch and dress. Holy Kate Spade!!!
Thank you for sharing this awesome Kate Spade inspired bridal shower with Bitchless Bride. Tons of cool ideas to replicate!!
