A Beautiful Winter Wedding Rockin' Some Serious Sparkle, a Kickass Cake and SO Much More!

I just had to open up this FAB real wedding with a pic of these signs. And, maybe it's because I'm in desperate need of a drink or maybe it's because I really love the word "shenanigans", but either way, I adore the signs and appreciate the message. Trust me, I've been doing this shit long enough to see all sorts of shenanigans at weddings, and 99% of the time, it's because of an open bar. Don't get me wrong, I love and applaud an open bar, but oftentimes it's the catalyst of mischievous behavior.

Anyway... Let's talk about the B+G, Christina and Steve! I am completely enamored with their sparkly, blush palette and décor. Even with the chilly weather (OMG, I can't wait for you to see the faux fur wraps the bridesmaids are wearing!) the venue feels so warm and looks extraordinarily beautiful. Bridey, even if you're not planning a winter wedding, these ideas are completely transferable! I mean... Let's be honest, sparkle never goes out of season! So, go... Enjoy, and be inspired!!

Such a stunning dress!

Okay... OB SES SED with this super GORGE bouquet!

Christina, you should have read his note before hair and makeup!!

It really doesn't get any cuter.

They're in Michigan in case you're wondering...

Thank you. I couldn't agree more! I mean... Remember the old days? Before our phones were an appendage? Probably not, but there was a time!!!

FAB pic!

STFU with this amazing décor! Right? It's simply beautiful...

I am dying over the escort cards. See the animals, bridey? That's the indication of the guest's entrée selection.  

Um. Check out that cake! So so so cool!

Oh my God. That's one hell of a dip!

The B+G are playing nice with the cake...

Thank you Christina + Steve for sharing your lovely wedding with Bitchless Bride!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ When Models Get Married... Beautiful Inside and Out

This is a beautiful wedding with beautiful people. Seriously, they’re models and hot damn are they good looking! But, beyond the aesthetics, the décor and our stunning B+G, these two absolutely get it. They get each other! In one little paragraph, Amanda, the bride sums it all up when she says that, “…I was so excited to plan our wedding, but I also in a sense didn’t even care if anything went wrong, I just knew I wanted to marry him. All I cared about was taking those vows and enjoying our special day with the people we love. And, that’s exactly what happened. The night was perfect and beautiful, and everyone we loved was there to celebrate with us.” Applause!!! Applause!!! Applause!!!

There is no doubt that there is a ton of inspiration in this gorgeous wedding. You’ll see lush gardens, gold sequined linens, cathedral ceilings, etc. But, the most inspiration should come from the story Amanda and Victor are going to tell as you become intoxicated with the details.

Take it away Amanda and Victor!

Victor: I met the love of my life while venturing into the modeling world, I am just a lucky dog to be chosen by a local photographer with a concept to recreate an old music video trough images. This is how our paths crossed and I fell in love the moments I saw her but even I wasn’t aware of how in love I was with her. Our shoot took place on the beaches of San Francisco and just like my wife that city now holds a very special place in my heart for making that moment so special….

Amanda: I first talked to Victor on Facebook; he contacted me to ask me advice about the modeling world because it was all new to him. He had shot photos with a photographer I had worked with before, and this photographer friend asked if I’d be able to do a couple’s shoot on the beach, so I said yes! The shoot was going to be a recreation of the music video “Wicked Games.” So, come to find out, the other model she set me up with for the shoot was Victor! The city of San Francisco, especially the beach, is a weakness for me… and so is a handsome man… so that day couldn’t have been any more perfect. Without even knowing it, we had this natural attraction towards one another. He made me feel so beautiful and confident; he was such a sweet gentleman. I was so nervous and yet he made me feel so calm and collected. I will never forget that day, the whole ride home, I was in the front seat and he was in the back, and he reached around and touched my arm and flirted with me the whole ride home. I felt like a little girl falling in love!

Amanda: After that (the shoot), we had our first date, and we just hit it off. He was perfect in every way. I had finally found the man I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. This was a new feeling for us both, we were both so in love and that’s all we knew. Victor: A year after we met (Valentine’s week) I decided to take her back where it all began… on the beaches of San Francisco, and it took all of me to finally calm down and pop the question. I reached into my pocket with my trembling hand and asked her if she wanted to spend the rest of her life with me …to my surprise she said yes!!! At that moment I felt my nervousness replaced by so much joy and happiness and excitement for the wedding planning months ahead…Victor: My personal favorite part of the wedding was seeing her walk down the aisle glowing like I’ve never seen her before, in her beautiful wedding dress thinking to myself how surreal this moment was and how incredibly lucky I was to be able to soon call this beautiful woman my wife ….OMG. These are probably my favorite linens ever! I love using these!
