Black Wedding Cake

A Beautifully Dark, Exotically Edgy, and Exceptionally Glamorous Styled Shoot with a Hint of Midnight Romance

I'm not in a dark place. I'm not sad or melancholy. What I am is 100% in love with this dark and moody styled shoot. And, OMG do I wish more brides would experiment with darker hues as they plan their wedding. I mean, if it's done correctly (ahem... like this), then the darkness is sexy, and mysterious, not depressing or sad. I mean... Just look at that table! And holy shit, wait until you see the black wedding dress, the black wedding cake and black leather wedding tux!

Bridey, not only do I hope you enjoy this shoot, but I hope you're inspired by it! Inspired enough to capture some of the details and incorporate them into your own wedding! Seriously! Take a chance! I hear brides say that they want to "do something different + unique" all the fucking time. Know what? It's time to do it! Next time I see something fabulous like this, I hope it's a real wedding, not a styled shoot! Got it! Good! Go enjoy!

Damn. That's a sexy table!

I seriously don't know how to eat a pomegranate, but I keep trying!

Love those cookies!!!

STFU. I can't even with this A MAZ ING cake! Just STFU!

Gorgeous bouquet...

S.E.X.Y.

Great shot! That dress... I want it!

My mouth is watering. Like, a lot.

Thank you for sharing this dark + fabulous styled shoot with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Badass Halloween-Inspired Styled Shoot

I love this shoot. I love this shoot for all of the stunning details, the gothic vibe, the "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" inspiration, and because of the model groom, Brandon Flowers. Just kidding! But, I swear to God this guy looks so much like him, that I about fell over when I saw the pics for the first time. What, bridey? You don't know who he is? WTF!? He's the lead singer of The Killers! Duh... I LOVE The Killers! Anyway... This styled shoot is damn magnificent. It's badass. It's borderline creepy (in an awesome way of course!).

Bridey, if you're looking to rock something different than a white wedding (um, just wait until you see the black wedding cake!), then allow yourself to get lost in this pile of inspiration, "dripping with decadent details and tons of vivacious color"! Yeah, totally had to steal that line from photographer, April Amodeo! Enjoy this masterpiece you are about to embark on, bridey, brought to you by an incredible group of vendors. I totally did!

Check out this groom, and now go Google image pics of Brandon Flowers."The bride was adorned in a sumptuous headpiece with hand-sculpted red satin roses and black lace-covered fans sparkling with Swarovski Crystals."That cake is absolutely phenomenal! I'm completely obessed with it!Stunning and vibrant!Fuck me, that's an amazing bouquet. I love all of the different texture elements here... The design of the linen, the sparkle of the charger plates, the voluptuous flowers...OMG. Is that a watermelon?A MAZ ING. A FUCK ING MAZ ING!!! Love this shot.Thank you for sharing this badass shoot with Bitchless Bride!! LOVE IT!
