Fantasy Friday ~ Code Red!
I'm using you today, bridey. I mean, I'm hoping you get some inspiration from this post because it fucking rocks, but today, it's all about me. Yup! Today I needed Bitchless Bride to help me brainstorm an idea that has been swirling around in my cray cray little head for the last two weeks, and finally feels ready to put on "paper". So, there won't be a real wedding or a styled shoot today. Nope! This one is strictly for moi. (BTW... are you totally dying over that red headpiece? RIGHT??)

The fantasy? The dream wedding? Code red! Yup! You read that right! Code fucking red y'all!! Yeah...This bride wants an all red wedding.... Like super fucking red. Like, red is going to explode from event red... And, you know what? I intend on giving it to her. But, it's got to be classy. It's got to be flashy and most of all, it can't be cheesy. 

So, the "boards" encapsulated in this post? Well, they will give you a little insight as to how my crazy mind works (or at the very least, how it's digesting the specifications around  this particular wedding). And honestly, I have no rhyme or reason to what I mashed together, but I like how it looks. Reminds me of organized chaos. The best part? "Diablo",  that's what I call bride behind her back (yes, we all have nick names for you, brideys), she's going to fucking love it, and I hope you do too...
Like I said... there is no particular rhyme to my reason today... All I know is that I need a few options for a signature drink, and I NEED a drink, so here are my thoughts... Champagne with strawberry puree or some strawberry with some freakin' moonshine (although I don't think it's red enough), or maybe the strawberry shortcake martini... Think that may be the winner!

Super Stylish Sunday ~ A Winery Engagement Session

Seriously, thank God for Sunday. I think we can all agree that perhaps we need to rest our weary heads and relax a bit after the craziness in Boston. And I really couldn't think of a better way to do that then to show you an engagement session at a winery. Right? And as you read the note from the bride, and scroll down to check out the photographs, I hope you will see what I did. PURE LOVE. As a wedding planner, when I see couples like this, it truly makes me proud to help create and orchestrate a kick ass celebration for two people who just "get it". And Sirinya and Khiem? Well, they get it...

(And, not for nothing... I love that Sirinya and Khiem chose to have their engagement session somewhere cool; somewhere that allowed them to act naturally with each other... almost as if the photographer wasn't event there. Know what I mean, bridey?)

From Sirinya, the bride: We met over 10 years ago through mutual friends but didn't start dating until a couple of years later. We were always attracted to each other but hesitant because we've been friends for so long. In October of 2005, we decided to break the seal and went on our first date to a Dodger game. I knew Khiem was a keeper when he bought me a beer, garlic fries and my very first Dodger dog. We soon made it official on January 5th, 2006.

The more time we spent together creating new life experiences, the deeper we fell in love. We both have a passion for food and traveling, soon becoming partners in crime everywhere we went. Khiem always likes to surprise me and recently bought tickets to the Jason Mraz concert on my birthday. The night was perfect! We drank wine, we sang and danced until the very last song. Moments like these are ones that we cherish the most and we're so excited to spend the rest of our time by each other's side.

I love this photograph. Seriously, it's as if they are the only two in the place! Nothing else matters... just them.

I need these wine glasses.

I have to admit, for some reason, seeing empty wine glasses makes be a teeny, tiny bit jealous at the moment...
