Gold Wedding

A Super Glamorous, Super Glitzy and Utterly Fantastic Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding

Haskell_Ferraro_RobSiglerPhotography_JM1911_low.jpg

I truly aspire to live more like all of the life I see emanating from this photograph... 
There's glitz, there's glam, there's glitz + glam, and there's a fantastic vintage typewriter worthy of obsession! Seriously, I love that Jaclyn + Matthew incorporated all of this fucking cool "glizam" into their wedding day. And, bridey, this pic is only the beginning! Just wait until you scroll down and see the bridesmaids dresses! OMFG. And, I write that with pure JOY not JUDGEMENT. They are incredible and sparkly, and totally glamorous! PLUS, all of the girls are wearing the most sensational headpieces! I swear I'm just waiting for them to start dancing like the Rockettets! 

But, beyond the butterfly-inducing details that make my wedding planner stomach go cray, this wedding is about two beautiful people (high school sweethearts!) celebrating the next step in their lives. And, it's clear to anybody viewing this post that these two are enjoying their wedding day to the fullest, and THAT, more than anything else, is worth aspiring to... Enjoy!

I mean... It really doesn't get much cuter (and, is it wrong that I would TOTALLY rock the same dresses as those toddlers?!!)...

Jaclyn, Jaclyn, Jaclyn... WOW! Just wow! You look stunning! That dress is EVERYTHING! And, I love how your dad is completely enamored by you.

YAAAAASSS!!! Matthew, you are rockin' that white tux!

SHUT the fuck up with the dresses, right? I'm seriously waiting to see them kick their legs!

This is a tough one... Dive into the champagne above or the delicious cake below? Decisions...

A Super Soulful, Super 70s Inspired and Super Romantic South Carolina Wedding

Priester_Priester_LavishMomentsPhotography_IMG0556_low.jpg

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 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)!!
