Fantasy Friday ~ ***Flashback*** A Graffiti Inspired Shoot

I just died and went to awesome heaven. Seriously, I am completely blown away by these incredibly beautiful, incredibly creative photographs. So, when I saw this in my inbox, I was thrilled. It was like a mixture of two of my favorite things... Graffiti and weddings. Bridey, please... ENJOY this fucking fabulously creative, amazingly gorgeous photo shoot... I know I did.

Notes from the submission: Shot at the Crewest Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, this themed shoot was a collaboration between Best Coast Photo and Orange Blossom Special Events inspired by the abundance of colorful graffiti and street art in areas like Venice Beach and throughout Los Angeles. Although derived from street art, we wanted to create a look that at once edgy and urban, yet modern and sophisticated. A fantastic team was assembled to bring together all of the elements, which included a custom-made graffiti cake by the amazing Santa Monica'sVanilla Bake Shop, details by Mr. Caballero Creative and a gorgeous dress by Miss Tashina.

I cannot get over the shoes! Talk about something blue? Right? They are a perfect compliment to this absolutely SICK wedding dress.

Like... I know they're models, but can they get any hotter? Or more cool? I think not.

Check out that cool bow tie!

I love the mix of graffiti with the formal place setting...

I am melting over this cake. Forever ago, I used to make wedding cakes, and I cannot get over the simplicity and depth of this truly original, amazingly cool cake! I mean it... This is definitely going on my cake Pinterest board...

Oh my God! Look how unique and fantastic that vase is? It's so simple, but so cool because of its simplicity.

I mean... LOOK how fucking cool they are? I am obsessed with this shoot!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ The Darker Side of of a Bride

Motivated by a wedding he saw in Mexico, Jason, with Juice Beat Photography, was inspired to photograph a beautiful bride dressed in a black wedding gown, or what he refers to as The Dark Bride. And seriously, I’m obsessed! The wedding industry has seen quite a bit of transition away from the traditional white wedding gown, thank you Vera Wang, and has begun to show that the darker side of a bride can be pretty fucking awesome. I have nothing against tradition, but it’s always nice to break it too. And how better to break tradition than with a black wedding dress?

When I saw the gorge bride up against a wall of graffiti rockin’ her jewel toned bouquet of flowers, I was captivated. I LOVE that Jason used an abandoned house complete with broken windows, old furniture and walls covered in graffiti for the shoot. Super creative and inspirational! Enjoy!

WOW! The dress, the flowers, the blue eyes... Totally FAB!Holy shit with the flowers! Kinda channeling Cyndi Lauper in this photograph? Right?The jewel tones of the florals really stand out against the black wedding dress!Scary fab veil...Screw the black dress.... Let me slip into something more comfortable...GORGE! I LOVE this shoot!!
