Ballroom Wedding

An Incredibly Polished Wedding Oozing with Glam + Sophistication + Class

I look at this photograph and while I know it’s not the traditional “post opener” kind of pic, I couldn’t help myself. I feel like this photograph absolutely captures the spirit of the B+G. It’s like they got caught in a moment that was just for them, and yet we have the privilege of getting a glimpse. So, I just had to show it to you, immediately, instead of waiting for the scroll! Anyway… Amy + Nick’s wedding day was lavishly gorgeous, dripping with exquisite details that will have you completely awestruck. As a wedding planner + writer, I love everything about this wedding. Every time I scroll, it’s like somebody is whispering sweet (and sort of dirty) nothings into my ear.

A+N hosted their wedding at The Bluestone, a cool venue overflowing with simple complexity (totally one of my better descriptions!). Guest were stunned as they arrived to the ceremony, taking in the beautiful sweeping + floral arbor, elegant glass vases lining the steps up the altar and the sheer magnitude of the total experience. But, it didn’t end there… The reception was totally GLAM. And, OMFG, just wait until you see A+N’s perfect (like seriously perfect) cake! Bridey, take all of the inspiration you can from this wedding. It all started with a FAB couple, and ended with good taste an quite a bit of joy…

It’s official!!!

Great shot, but what I can’t help looking at are the bridesmaids dresses. I love the soft pink. It’s playful and elegant at the same time.

A Styled Shoot with a Little Water, Air, Earth, but No Fire!

WingsofGloryPhotography_finaledits0180_low.jpg

Bridey, drop whatever it is that you're doing, and check out this amazing styled shoot! Even if you're not a 'get married on the water' kind of girl, you won't want to miss this! Because if nothing else, it's fucking amazing with amazing details and the most amazing wedding cake I've seen in a very long time. But, not just that... This shoot is plain ol' pretty with a lot of prettiness to look at!

I love the idea of adding "props" to your wedding to make it more authentically "you". If you and your sig other do a lot of traveling, then a globe makes perfect sense! And the plane? Hell yeah! But, bridey, the reality is, don't be afraid to do what YOU (and your sig other) want to do. Because the beauty really is in the details... And the details are what make you two the collective YOU! Now, go... Enjoy this lite and fun styled shoot!

Bridey, you know I love cake, right? Like not just like, but really, really LOVE! And when I see a BEAUTIFUL cake done so well that it literally brings tears to my eyes, showing you one pic just won't do. Soooo... I have like five pics of the cake in this post!!! Keep scrolling!

A Magical Disney Wedding Rockin' Amazing Purple Hair, Kick Ass Shoes and Some Seriously FAB Décor!

I wish I could draw in a speech bubble coming from Ray's mouth. I mean, I could, but I don't want to destroy the integrity of this fantastic photograph. And it really is FANTASTIC, right? So, bubbling in "Fuck yeah!" probably won't do it the justice I was aiming for, would it? Nope, so I am simply telling you what I want to do instead of doing what I want to do (a huge step for me btw...). And actually, I don't have to do either because Ray is doing it for me. And Krystle, the cool-ass bride with the pink and purple locks, is 100% feeling it too... 

Bridey, this wedding is a complete mixture of cool meets Disney. Seriously, Krystle and Ray rock some superb style, and that style, connected with the awesomeness that is Disney is captured in every frame. And as a fun side note, the B+G's combined name is "Kray". So, obviously, they had to run with it and came up with the phrase, "Kray ever after". It's too good, right?

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Warm, Gorgeously Romantic, Washington Wedding

And they're nice too... Can you believe it, bridey? Can you believe that a couple so handsome and so loving with each other (and everyone who is lucky enough to make their acquaintance) can be so nice too? I mean, holy shit... Some people just have it all, don't they? Well, good for them! Because in my experience, the peeps who have it all, usually are simply getting back what they give. And Geneva and Kellen must give a whole hell of a lot! I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to hear a statement like this in my industry, "It’s really hard to accurately describe how wonderful it is to photograph a couple that are simply SO NICE that it blows you away." This from Geneva and Kellen's photographer, Jenn of Jenn Ireland Photography.

This coupled with the extraordinary details like sparkly red shoes, a deliciously warm and almost intoxicating ambiance and the love that these two have for each other made me feel like I have been getting through to you, bridey!! It's fucking working!! Bitchless Bride works! Anyway... Enjoy the beautiful details and the beautiful couple.

Um... I need those shoes! (Suddenly, I keep chanting, "There's no place like home. There's no place like home.")Phew, we did it!! Got those FAB shoes on!Def one of my fave first looks!What a fine looking group of maids and men!Love the personalized flasks! Put them to good use boys!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Beautiful Sight... We're Happy Tonight...

I'm SO over the snow. Like SO. OVER. THE. FUCKING. SNOW. If you are on the East Coast, Midwest or bascially anywhere from the Midwest and eastward, then I am sure you are over the snow too. But, there is one thing I happen to love about the snow. A winter wedding. I am the biggest mushball when it comes to a glistening white backdrop, amber hues, snowflakes and a beautiful wedding dress.

Just take a few doctors, Lauren and Frank, some sparkle and a FABU reception, and there you have it. A smashing wedding! Seriously, just wait until you see the details on this one. As somebody who has been in the industry for practially my whole life, specifically luxury hotels, I definitely have a softspot for a well done hotel wedding. And this wedding, well, it's just beautiful. Gorgeous actually. My goes of to the Double Tree by Hilton Tudor Arms Hotel. Bridey, if you're a hotel wedding kind of girl, then I highly suggest that you take in and digest all of these gorgeous photographs!

Lauren, that look is priceless! Far cry from the scrubs, huh?Such a lovely wedding dress. Awwwwwww.... Group hug!Frank, that is the look that every girl wants to see when they are walking down the aisle.See what I mean? Such a FAB backdrop (and it's free)!!
