If a picture is worth a thousand words, then we should multiply this one is 100! Right? I mean, I don't know about you, but it's pretty obvious that the B+G, Ashlee + Mike, are madly in love. Seriously, just look at this photograph! And while you're at it, scroll down and look at the rest of them! Bridey, there are so many incredible details that will feed your desire for inspiration that I promise you, you will keep coming back to A+M's wedding for enlightenment when you feel lost. I cannot get over how well these two managed to incorporate the soulful 70s into their wedding (without making it feel overdone or cheesy!).

The B+G met in kindergarten. Even at a young age, Mike already already had some serious game, and was casually dropping in on the Ashlee's Girl Scout meetings (led by his mom). The two remained friends throughout college and ultimately became romantically involved. And, we are so glad they did! Bridey, enjoy this wedding filled with love, soul and glam!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Damn Fine 70s Inspired Rock & Roll Photo Shoot

This styled 70s shoot is an inspirational buffet of awesomeness. Seriously, when I saw these photographs, I immediately wanted to stop what I was doing (oh wait... I did...) and dive head first into this sea of the 70s, but with a modern twist. Bridey, there is so much kickass inspiration here, that there is no way you won't walk away with a pile of ideas, even if your wedding is nowhere near this kind of glam. I am completely obsessed with the deep, sensual color palette and all of the fun little enhancements these peeps used to tie it all together.

Not too mention that the lighting in these photographs is sensational. Bridey, I've said it a million times, lighting has the power to change everything! So, use it! These photographs are not only so well executed, but they seem to glow, and that's because of the lighting. Soooo... Enough out of me! Go soak up the fucking brilliance of this shoot.

Whoa.Hey girl...These colors! The crispness of the photographs! The imagination!! I mean... I'm gonna start crying it's so good...Time for a little making out.This a gorgeous, naked wedding cake. No frills. No embellishments. Just well done.
