Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A "Rockin'" Rocky Mountain, DIY, Amazingly Gorgeous Wedding

Brideys, try not be jelly when I tell you how Adam proposed to Bernida... Okay? Ready? Adam proposed to Bernida after throwing her OUT OF A PLANE (Yup! You read that right!). And... It was her first time skydiving! Can you imagine?! Adam had a big 10' x 60' sign (one that would be dragged behind a plane) rolled out in the grassy landing field that said, "WILL YOU MARRY ME?". The best part? He could hear her screaming "Yes!" from about 1,500 ft in the air. Seriously, that guy puts all of our grooms to shame! Right?

Anyway, as you scroll down, you'll realize two things... One, I had a hard time editing Bernida and Adam's wedding because I loved all of the photographs so much, and two, the B+G are seriously in love. Like, mushy, romantic, and borderline I'm gonna be sick kind of love... And it's fucking great! Their mushy love for each other is apparent in pretty much every.single.photograph. Totally, how it should be, bridey!!! So, take some notes, and enjoy the eye candy!

Those pearls belonged to Bernida's grandmother. And what you can't see when you look down is that Adam has his grandfather's pocket knife in his jacket pocket. I love the sentiment. It seriously looks fake. Doesn't it? How could anything be that beautiful??Bernida and Adam got married on Crested Butte Mountain overlooking the Paradise Divide Mountain Range. Great shot!Gimme some!! Such a fun photograph!HAHA! Look at the faces on the groomsmen and bridesmaids! LOVE IT!A MAZ ING. The cake is stunning, and the shot of the cake is magnificent!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Seriously FABULOUS, 1920s Styled Shoot...

Bridey, you’re going to see A LOT of this gorgeous 1920s styled shoot. Not just on Bitchless Bride, but if I had to guess, you’re bound to see this shoot on several sites. And normally I would choose to dodge a submission knowing that it is going to be on a gazillion blogs, but honestly? It’s just too good! I simply couldn’t walk away… As a wedding planner, as a woman and a little bit of a diva, I just had to share this with you as soon as I saw it come across my inbox. Seriously, just wait until you scroll down and see for yourself.

Sooooo… This group of gifted vendors got together and created the shoot in the India House, located in the “stone street historic district” of New York City. The India House was established in 1914, and even has its own landmark building. How FAB is that? And, the goal? To feel like this wedding took place in the 1920s. Know what? They totally nailed it! By the time you’re done taking it all in, you will feel like you just walked out of the Great Gatsby.  So, enough outta me… Enjoy this breathtaking shoot!

Holy shit... If looks could kill...What's that like? Being beautiful, and having the most stunning eyes? Right?Wow. Just wow. Look at that headpiece! Hot damn. That's hot! Amazing dress. Simply stunning!Does anybody else feel the sex vibe emanating from this photograph? I mean... This pic totally gets me going! "Oh... you want me to get comfortable and have a cocktail while I wait for her to change? Sounds good." That dress! That hair!!! OMG!!Here they go again! Damn sexy.ANOTHER amazing dress... Bridey, if you're looking for a Great Gatsby feel for your wedding... I think you just got a ton of inspiration!!!

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.

Fantasy Friday ~ A Gorgeous, Rustic, Boho Styled Wedding Shoot

Bridey, if you’re looking for inspiration, look no further! Seriously, there are oodles of inspiration in this rustic, boho shoot. OODLES! These pics are absolutely drool worthy, and every now and again, it’s nice for me to step down from the soapbox that is The Truth Hurts Tuesday, and even take a break from Real Wedding Wednesday and linger over the amazingly inspirational possibilities of a styled shoot brought to me by some seriously creative peeps in the industry.

If you’re looking for some simple, yet beautiful styling ideas for your wedding, just scroll down. Jacqueline Marie Studios incorporated rich florals, vintage props and even a pink signature drink with a kiwi garnish. Super awesome, right? I mean, kiwi is rather delicious and you never see it in a cocktail, let alone at a wedding! Perhaps you want to rock a stunning headpiece as you make your way down the aisle? Then replicate the handmade floral wreath below. Personally? I am dying over that dress! Lace is not usually my thing (and neither is a form fitting gown due to my voluptuous ass), but I find myself loving the lace, the shape and the cut. And, don’t even get me started on the cake!!! Hell yeah! Enjoy this one, bridey. I did!Um... A MAZ ING. I love everything about this pic. Her hair, the headpiece and her beautiful long neck.Hi kiwi. You look quite lovely in a pink cocktail. Would make for a great signature drink!Such a fantastic chandelier!

Fantasy Friday ~ Majestic, Vintage & Fabulous

I'm not gonna lie... This styled shoot is totally an orgy for the eyes... So, in keeping up with the whole "orgy" theme, I'm going to share it with you. Because isn't that what an orgy is all about? Sharing? OMG... SORRY! I think it's time that I move away from the orgy thing... Anyway, this shoot is BEA U TI FUL!! I love everything about it. In fact, I hardly knew where to begin (because there's like, so much beauty), so whatever photograph caught my eye, that's the order in which you are seeing it. 

I hope you enjoy this one, bridey! Clearly, you know that I did! I mean, considering that I used the word "orgy" four times in one paragraph... Yeah, I'd say this one definitely moved me!

The lace, the gold and the china, oh my!!Is that the cutest thing you have ever seen? Look at that pink tongue!Um... could you bust? This dress had me at "hello"...SHUT UP!! This cake is fucking incredible!!!Check out the jewels on the dog!Fantastically amazing table... Look at that headpiece!!!I love this one...
