Hotel 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!

A Nautically Perfect, Sensationally Sweet and Incredibly Relaxed Beachfront Wedding

Hammett_Luce_FreasPhotography_freasphotographykeywestwedding119_low.jpg

Meet Shelby and Jake. This fun-filled B+G met on a boat! I mean, kinda makes me feel like a degenerate for meeting my hus in a bar! But, it's been thirteen years, so I guess we're doing something right! Anyway... Shelby was working as a camp counselor for Reef Relief and Jake happened to be working on the same boat. And, according to the adorably cute pic above, sparks were totally flying. They beat the odds and withstood the difficulty of a long distance relationship while Shelby earned her Masters in Marine Biology from the University of Miami. After graduation, Shelby moved to Key West and began her career researching corals, while Jake transitioned from working in the water sports industry to a teaching career. 

Bridey, THIS WEDDING IS EVERYTHING! It's so lovely and well designed, but at the same time, supremely relaxed and fun. And you know that I preach how important perspective is during wedding planning and on your wedding day, and this B+G fucking nailed it! The details are stunning AND they are clearly having the best.day.ever. So, scroll down and absorb the vibe and the take in the beauty of Shelby + Jake's kickass wedding!

Jake, you look charming and handsome! He didn't want to wear a tie "because I feel like I am choking!" While I don't wear ties too often, I can appreciate feeling a bit claustrophobic with something wrapped around my neck!

A Non-St. Patrick's Day, Totally Stunning Destination Wedding

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you all have a fabulous day/night celebrating! Due some heavy celebrations in my past that left way to much green food coloring in places where food coloring should never be, I have decided to go a different route today, and show you this totally delicious, totally kickass and totally gorgeous Cancun wedding. I mean... There's a ton of green in this post, but just not in the traditional St. Patty's Day way.  Seriously, bridey, not only do I wish I had planned Rebecca + Jeffrey's wedding, but I wish I could have been there as a guest and a friend. Just wait until you see this STUN NING destination wedding! The planner in me? Fucking OB SES SED with the design of the long table and décor. Just the fact that R+J were ballsy enough to have a one long table instead of round tables makes me shake with joy.  

Anyway, this gorgeous B+G met in college, stayed together throughout undergrad + grad school, and then got hitched! Um, did I mention that they met in an IT class? Clearly, it's meant to be if you meet your sig other in an IT class, and it works! RIGHT? Anyway, aside from their shared love of travel culture, and food, Jeffrey is quite the cook, and spoils Rebecca with his talents daily. While Rebecca is no cook, she dazzles him with her baking... I really could go on and on, so I'll shut up now so that you can get scrolling! Enjoy!

Holy shit! Look up at that amazing dress! Now, look down at those shoes!!! OMFG!

Sexy.Beautiful.

Hello handsome!!

Jeffrey enjoys anything related to cars. This guy can name any car year, make and model he sees on the street... It makes sense considering he is in product marketing & strategy for Volkswagen of American.

So so so beautiful!

Probably my favorite pic ever!

Right? STFU. I can't. It's too good.

WOW!!! Just wow!

Simple and sensational!

Thank you Rebecca + Jeffrey for sharing your lovely and awesome wedding with Bitchless Bride!

A Super Cool, Super Colorful, Retro Inspired Arizona Wedding

You know that saying that says you can "judge a man by how he treats his mother"? Well, I find that you can pretty much judge anybody based on how they treat animals. Right? Well, bridey, when you see the invitations and the wedding cake, you'll totally know that Denise and Jeremy are standup peeps. Besides their generosity to animals, they are clearly a cool couple based solely on their wedding décor and stylish taste. I'm completely obsessed with the flowers, colorful place settings, retro furniture and kickass lighting!

And, OMG! Bridey... I seriously cannot get enough of Denise's bouquet. Once this post is live, I am going to pin the shit out it. It's amongst the coolest bouquet I've seen on Bitchless Bride! No joke!! Anyway, there are piles and piles of incredible wedding inspiration for you to gnaw on... So, go for it! Enjoy!

Denise and Jeremy have too much stuff, so in lieu of gifts, they asked that their guests bring cans of pet food to be donated to a local shelter. Sniff. Sniff. Such a FAB idea!

And your little dog too...

Greatest.Picture.Ever.

Holy shit! That's unbelievable!!

Super dapper couple!

Gorgeous location for a ceremomy!

Denise, it's official. You're absolutely stunning!

Such fabulous vibrant colors! 

Amazing colors!Amazing lighting!!

Why have one cake when you can have two? Look down!

Thank you Denise and Jeremy for sharing your cool ass wedding with Bitchless Bride!!
