Seriously, how could I begin this post with any other photograph? Right? I mean... Shelly is officially my favorite person in the whole wide world! Just LOOK at how she's reacting to the beautiful Katy in her stunning wedding dress after walking down the aisle. A MAZ ING! Simply.fucking.amazing. After all, this is their wedding day! And this is totally the appropriate response to all of the emotions swirling through their minds. Some laughter, some tears... Some more laughter! 

Bridey, after all of the wedding planning and all of the anticipation leading up to your wedding day, it's super important to give yourself permission to feel everything. I mean it, don't hold back. FEEL EVERYTHING. Let it go. The people celebrating with you love you, and don't give a shit if you're crying with snot running down your face. Okay... ***Stepping off of my soapbox.*** But, you know what I mean. Your wedding day goes by in a flash, so don't waste time missing it! In the meantime, go get inspired by Katy + Shelly's fabulous, colorful and spectacular wedding!

A Wedding with a Ton of Pride, a Fabulous Parade and a Lot of Spunk!!

As a wedding planner + writer, blogger, etc. I feel like I've seen and been exposed to all kinds of amazing weddings and events. But, Steven + Tim's wedding? Well, it's a first for me. Why? Because I've never seen or planned a wedding that took place at a parade. And Steven + Tim? They got married at the Stonewall Columbus Pride Parade. Right?  Isn't that amazingly wonderful!? I mean... Holy fuck! Talk about incomparable wedding day experience! And the best part ? When their photographer, Mak Rabbit Photography, asked what they were looking forward to most on their wedding day, Tim said, "Having our relationship legally recognized and standing up in front of our family and expressing our love and commitment to each other." Hell yeah!

Sooooo.... Friends and family met at a little corner of the park, and John (the friend who introduced S+T) officiated their ceremony. Followed by some candids in and around the park, complete with a wardrobe change, Steven and Tim truly rocked the hell out of the pride parade and their kickass wedding! Enjoy!

I can't even with this shirt. It's just too awesome!

Sniff sniff... Everything is in this moment! Totally moving...

A beautiful embrace, and some seriously FAB pants!

So sweet! I'm a l'il obsessed with the beard...

Time for a quick change! I love that they kept the same color scheme going!! 

Simple.Fabulous.Rainbow.

Thank you Steven + Tim for sharing your AWESOME day with Bitchless Bride!

An Enchanting Photoshoot with a Surprise Proposal That Will Take Your Breath Away

Every now and then, I receive a submission that moves me to my core. A submission that's so good, and so tremendous, that the hair on the back of my neck stands straight up. And this styled shoot, bridey? Well, I'm blown away. It 100% knocked me on my ass. And, it's not just because of the extraordinary details, but because of the raw emotion brilliantly captured during a surprise proposal. Hayley completely surprises Dillon as she drops to one knee, rockin' an engagement ring, and really, the photographs say it all. 

How'd it all happen? Well, Dillon thought she was modeling with her girlfriend as a married couple for a photoshoot and video. Little did she know! The proposal and Dillon's adorable reaction, combined with the splendid details you are about to see are pretty fucking awesome! Aside from the beautiful gown, kickass shoes (that I totally need to have), and flowers, this shoot is really touching and passionate. And as you know, I am an absolute sucker for a good looking cake. And, bridey? There are THREE. THREE cakes, and I just... I just... I can't. So, go see for yourself, because this shoot will blow your mind too! And, don't forget to check out the video (don't worry, I got it below)! It will seriously make you cry.

I'm in love with this style of invites!

I needed to show you a close up of the hot pink shoes! 

Hayley! You're beautiful! I love everything about your look! From the headpiece, to the gown, to the gigantic bouquet of flowers! A MAZ ING!

WOW. That's some serious cleavage. DAMN, girl! At the risk of sounding like Paris Hilton, THAT'S HOT! But, I can't help it because it's true!

OMG, Dillon... You're adorable! Such a FAB smile (and dimples)!

Let's take this outside... Dillon, you're in for a surprise!

I mean... STFU! It's too good! The cake is completely unbelievable, and the message? Well... what can I say?

Seriously! Could ya' bust??? Dillon's reaction is just fabulous!

Like.. So so so sweet...

The other cake may have the message written on it, but these two cakes are pretty fucking fantastic! Right?

OMG. Thank you for sharing this surprise proposal shoot with Bitchless Bride! I love everything about this post!!!

A "Naked" Warehouse, Color-Pop Inspired, Stunningly Fucking Awesome Styled Shoot

What do you get when you mix a few creative vendors with an empty warehouse and a real life, super stylish couple? This fucking fantastic, color-pop styled shoot! Right? Seriously! I mean... See that cool backdrop behind Missy + Kelly? It's made of masking tape. Yup! MASKING TAPE! Creatively placed, a bit off centered, masking tape... And BOOM! There's you're fabulous backdrop! Bold, yet simplistic, and super cheap. It really does't get better than that! Throw in some giant, gold confetti and you have a party! Or, better yet... A wedding.

Bridey, if you want to make a statement at your wedding, but lack the bankroll for over-the-top extravagance, no problem. All you need is a little imagination, a blank canvas (or stark warehouse) and piles and piles of color. This styled shoot is bursting with color and tons of fun. Enjoy the inspiration!

O.M.G. that bouquet is fucking amazing!

Love this pic! So fun!

Are you dying over the red shoes? I am!

There's something about this picture that totally gets me...

Love. So simple, and so elegant.

So fun!

I could really use one of these right now!

Obsessed with the hair and nails.

Thank you Kamp Weddings and Missy + Kelly for sharing this fun and FAB styled shoot with Bitchless Bride!! We LOVE it!

An Intimate, Beautiful, Sunset Beach Wedding

Isn't that photograph incredible? The flag? The kiss? The passion? I mean, there is so much emotion emanating from Jessica and Jennifer that I swear, I can see it. It's almost as if I'm in a cartoon (from back in my day... Ahem... the 80s!), and the emotion is floating from the B+B to me. Right? Can you see it, bridey?! Or, maybe you think that my imagination has gotten the better of me! Either way, I know you can feel it too!

J+J had a stunning, beach ceremony followed by an intimate dinner with only close friends and family followed by tons of dancing. For some of you, it's totally the way to go... Grab your nearest and dearest, head to Mexico and get yourselves married! LOVE IT! Bridey, enjoy all of the fabulous, and lovely details of this lovely wedding!

Awwwww... I love the mother + daughter pics! Sniff... Sniff!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Allow Me to Show You a Sand Ceremony, Henna and Tons of Purple!

I love all of the colorful details encapsulated in Jennifer and Shelia's wedding. Not only was it a beautiful day to get married, but their story is quite beautiful too! You see, both their ceremony and reception took place at the Coronado Community Center which happens to be just down the street from where Sheila had popped the question. I mean, how cool is it that their wedding essentially allowed them to share their engagement with their friends and family too? Right? LOVE IT! 

But, seriously, bridey... Check out the amazing ceremony! I do love a sand ceremony and what it represents, and I especially love the kick ass colors they choose to blend! Click on the link to see what it all means... It's pretty fucking cool.

A little note from the photographer, Jennifer Corbin: Their wedding day was an incredible day full of joy, love and emotion. The toast from Sheila’s brother was filled with laughs and tears and lots of love for his sister. One of my favorite parts was when Sheila’s cousins did a traditional dance for the newlyweds. In all honestly the day went by so quickly, and before I knew it I was saying goodbye to the sweet couple. Thank you Jennifer and Shelia for allowing me to be a part of your big day, I know I will think back on it fondly for years to come.

Beautiful henna... Simply stunning... Lovin' the purple shoes too!! 
Awwwww.... I love the first look. I really, really do!!
Incredible! I totally dig their nails too... I see a party nail!! Oh yeah!YEAH!!!!!!

A MAZ ING!!!!! Such beautifully passionate colors!!
