A Lush, Mountain Wedding Filled with Extraordinary Colors, Creatures + Décor, Disguised as a Rockin' Party!

Shafer_Simon_AdamKealingInternationalWeddingPhotography_NorthCarolinaWeddingAdamKealing091_low.JPG

Bridey, Sarah + Andy's wedding looks absolutely nothing like this pic. Like, not even a little bit... I mean, if I told you that this pic was part of an engagement shoot, you'd believe me. Right? Well, it's not. Not at all. Not even remotely. This shot is of the B+G sneaking away for a few photographs after the ceremony, and before the RAGER that was their wedding reception. And, I mean RA GER! The kind of party filled with overflowing shots, men rockin' some HOT makeup, the bride with a bottle of booze on the dance floor, and clothes disappearing. Honestly? It's fucking awesome!!! And, the décor?? Dreamy. Delicate. Delicious. A complete contrast to the vibe, and for that, I am OB SES SED!

So, why did I choose to open this rockin' party of a wedding with this particular photograph? Because, I love that while these two clearly love to celebrate, they also clearly love each other. There is a tenderness and ease captured here that would 100% get lost in the scroll, and I really wanted you, bridey, to see every corner of this wedding day. Remember, you can have the wedding of your dreams, and celebrate with your friends and family, but please don't lose sight of the why. YOU TWO!!! Enjoy every.single.photograph. It's truly impossible not to!

I feel like this pic could be in a perfume ad... "SexyFab".

You just can't manufacture this kind of emotion. These guests are not only in attendance, but they are present.

There is so much to love about this photograph!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch... Bridey, just look at how incredible this escort card "table" is! OMFG. It's so well done, that the planner in me is going to cry.

Speaking of a crying wedding planner, the décor at this wedding is simply phenomenal. The details are absolutely exquisite!! I truly love everything about everything!

Shafer_Simon_AdamKealingInternationalWeddingPhotography_NorthCarolinaWeddingAdamKealing071_low.jpg

Like, this is a summer wedding, and yet S+A are rockin' deer as part of their décor. How fucking awesome is that?

It's clear to me (and probably to you too if you have even a shred of emotion), that the guests at Sarah and Andy's wedding WANT to be there to support the B+G and celebrate with them.

I'm thinking that the photographer thought it was a good idea to get a group shot before things got super cray... Keep scrolling, bridey. All I gotta say is, HOT DAMN!

I dunno know who she is, but I love her and would be holding her hand if I was lucky enough to be at this wedding!

Soooooo.... YAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Sexy and Stylish "Married in the Mud" Styled Shoot

A Sexy and Stylish "Married in the Mud" Styled Shoot

I'm feeling awfully playful today, bridey, which is totally awesome for you, because I am about to share a pretty kickass styled shoot with you. SO awesome, that, like, I.CAN'T.EVEN with the wedding dress, and all of the other delicious details showcased below. Bridey, if you rock some seriously gigantic jewels (I just cannot bring myself to say, "balls" and jewels is all I could come up with...), then I DARE you to be bold enough to wear a damn sexy dress like this on your wedding day. OMG... Can you imagine? I mean... Perhaps you could cover up the tatas with a nude faux bra, but either way, a statement would be made!

The Wedding that Made Me Leave My Heart in San Francisco

Isn't that sexy? Like hot damn, that's a hot couple, kind of sexy? Right? And seeing Erica's Valentino's just flitting in the air, as her big strong man of a husband passionately kisses her on a busy San Francisco street? Fuck yes! Totally makes it that much better! C'mon, am I wrong? Did I go overboard? Should I be writing some smutty romance novels instead of posting on BB? You know I'd rock the shit out of those....

Anyway, bridey, enough about my smut and back to our B+G, Erica and Colin... Seriously, if you have the opportunity to ditch some of the traditional wedding photos and have your big strong sig other lift your ass up... I mean, explore the surroundings of where you are tying the knot, I strongly suggest it. Think colorful wedding pics! Think sexy! But, seriously, beyond my obsession with the sexy pics, Erica and Colin are about to show you their utterly fabulous wedding day filled with elegance, grace and sophistication.

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Dark and Stormy with a Side of Corn

Katie and Matiss had a simple and beautiful wedding on a private estate in Dover, FL. The stormy weather may have made some of your brideys nervous, but not Katie and Matiss! Instead, Katie and Matiss were able to grab some FAB shots using the ominous skies and cool corn fields as a kickass backdrop. I mean... Scroll down and see... REALLY COOL! And despite a bit of rain, they were able to have the ceremony outside and then celebrate later under the tent.

Something super AWES? So, Matiss' parents and family couldn't be at the wedding. But, they were able to be present at the ceremony via Skype from their homeland of Russia! Now how fantastic is that? Right?? 

Katie... That is one seriously sexy wedding dress. And you are OWNING it!  Matiss you are certainly one happy man. Super adorable!I love this chuppah/arch. Beautiful flowers and draping.A MAZ ING shot. Amazing! I love how Katie's veil is trailing behind her.
