Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Exquisite, Black & White Wedding at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston

We've all heard the phrase or even said that we were going to, "roll out the red carpet", right? Well, imagine if you, bridey, were going to roll out the black carpet? And, that black carpet was going to be used to transform a space so magnificent as the ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental in Boston for your wedding? I mean, holy shit... That's exactly what Paula and Greg did (well, their group of incredibly talented wedding vendors anyway...). This kickass group of industry peeps created the most A MAZ ING black and white wedding; one that will leave you absolutely drooling over the details. 

Bridey, close your eyes and imagine a shiny black dance floor, mirrored tables (seriously, who needs linen when you have mirrored tables!), an insanely GORGE floral installation (which doubled as your wedding altar), charger plates that I totally would hang in my house, etc. etc. etc.... Oh wait! Open your eyes! Silly me! Just scroll down, bridey, scroll down and prepare to be blown away. Enjoy!!

Paula... Wow! I can't... It's too good... This bouquet seriously brings tears to my eyes! And look down... I love tying sentimental value into something so special.This is awfully romantic!We did it! We signed the Ketubah! Let's go get married!Exquisite. Simply exquisite chuppah!!I love how her parents catch her half way down the aisle.Ghost chairs... LOVE!

Super Stylish Sunday ~ Why Finding the RIGHT Photographer is SO Important!

I have to be honest, I LOVE Super Stylish Sunday! I feel like it gives me the opportunity to really educate you, bridey, through pictures and today, with a great story of love, committment and an awful photographer (from 14 years ago)... Bridey, I cannot even begin to stress the importance of hiring the right photographer for your wedding. Allow me to be blunt. Ready? You get what you pay for. PERIOD. If you hire a cheap photographer, odds are your wedding photographs will look cheap too... So bridey, a little tough love? Don't fuck up your wedding photographs because you are cheap. It's the wrong place to cut corners...

So, I encourage all of you brideys to browse this amazingly lovely photo shoot, and read Helena & Gabe's beautiful story. Although, as beautiful as a story as it is, it's incredibly frustating for those of us in the wedding industry to hear about a bad photographer! Apparently, the wedding photographs taken by their photographer were so bad that they didn’t want to put them up in their home!

I love a good shoulder kiss...

 

{I am FREAKING out over the details! That bouquet, and her makeup? DYING!!}
