I am 100% hungover. Not in the traditional sense, but in a bridal kind of way... You see, bridey, I am coming off of an exceptional wedding weekend, and although I am pretty exhausted, my head hurts, and I'm achy, definitely signs of a massive hungover, I'm not. It's just how I feel after a successful weekend of wedding "debauchery".  I was lucky enough to spend an amazing weekend in Newport, RI, with my kickass B+G, and now that it's over, I feel blah... I feel empty... I feel hungover.

And although the B+G and I have been planning their wedding for only seven short months, we pulled off a serious masterpiece. Like, serious-fucking-masterpiece. Bridey, the pics I'm sharing with you are certainly not professional (taken on a iPhone) but, I believe them to be pretty fantastic. I'll share the actual, professional photographs in the near future, but for now, please enjoy... Trust me, they're so good that you might feel hungover too! 

The harpist was amazing! Look in the corner... She was completely enchanting!

The room was flipped from the ceremony to the reception...

Sequins, lighting and flowers! OH MY! 

Yeah... They're a HOT couple! Right? She's wearing an Oscar de la Renta wedding gown, and if he looks familiar to you, it's probably because he is the drummer for Rev Theory

It was a small, ceremonial wedding cake because we served a plated dessert and had Ben + Jerry's come and set up an ice cream sundae bar! I mean, who doesn't love ice cream?!!

BB's Finalizing the Deets for a Fancy Newport Wedding...

Sorry, bridey, but I don't have a real wedding to show you today. The truth? I ran out of time... Happens to the best of us, right? But, I have a really good "excuse"! I am putting the finishing touches on a fancy "real wedding" I have been planning in Newport, Rhode Island this weekend. What started out as some innocent bridal coaching & consulting, morphed into a full wedding planning gig. Love it when that happens! Soooo.... While I'm sorry I don't have anything to show you today, never fear... I'll make up for it! 

Happy Planning!

XO,

BB

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Stunning in Newport

So, every now and then, I like to surprise you, brideys. And today, you are in for a special treat! You are about to indulge in an absolutely stunning wedding. But, oddly enough the bride and groom are not part of this feature. You will only see the details. Sounds completely shady, doesn't it? It's really not, I promise you, but out of respect for the bride and groom, who have asked to be kept out of the photographs, you won't see them today. But, in this case? It doesn't really matter... The photographs will speak for themselves even without the B+G.

This wedding certainly looks to good to be true, but it IS NOT A STYLED SHOOT! IT IS A REAL WEDDING! And I know that it looks so fucking perfect that it looks like a styled shoot due to the perfect placement of pretty much everything, but I can assure you, it's not. So, feast your eyes, and steal some ideas from this masterpiece!

Exquisite dress. Just a breathtaking Vera Wang. Right? (And let's be honest, who doesn't want a picture of a horse in the background?)

How amazing to have the ceremony looking out on the water with a gorgeous ombre, flower petal aisle?

Following the ceremony, cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres look out on the ocean.

Um, yeah. Astoundingly modern, amazingly cool, and miraculously fantastic.

Are you completely dying over these arrangements? I'm DY ING! OMG those orchids are so beautiful, and the "diamonds" gracing the bottom of candles? Priceless. Gorgeous. Awe-inspiring photographs...
