Bridey, if you are completely stunned by this gorgeous wedding dress off of the hanger, just wait until you see it on the bride! OMFG! And, you know that I don’t usually open with a pic of the wedding dress (nothing against wedding dresses, but a nice photograph of the B+G is always a good way to start a post!), but I seriously think this one spoke to me. And, no, I’m not drinking at my desk or smoking or vaping or whatever… I was just moved by the beautiful details. Although, once you see it ON, it’s truly magical! Anyway, Nicole + Jon wanted a low key wedding with live music. How awesome does that sound, right? Well, that’s exactly what they got.

This B+G had their decided against a traditional wedding venue, and celebrated their nuptials at a restaurant. I gotta say, I like their style. Before my hus and I decided to elope, we put a deposit down at a FAB restaurant in Boston. Because not only did we love the food and ambiance, we wanted to break away from the ballroom, and celebrate in a space that felt more like us. That’s exactly what what N+J did! Enjoy this incredibly low key yet totally fantastic wedding!

A Beautiful, 1960s Themed, at Home Wedding in the United Kingdom

Laura_Richard_BerniPalumboPhotography_LRweddingbpphotographyHIGHRES087_big.JPG

Bridey, I can't EVEN with this wedding. Like. NOT.EVEN.A.LITTLE.BIT. The story of Laura + Richard is so unbelievably lovely. And even lovelier? Is the way they decided to get married... On their terms, on a limited (yet determined) budget, and all while celebrating their love for the past, present and future. L+R met very young, and knew they were going to be together forever. One of the first things Richard said to Laura was that he was going to marry her! And he was right! They got tied the knot on their 10th anniversary of being together. But, my favorite part? They got married at home. Somewhere that's not just another venue, but in a place that means something to them. 

Laura said that, "For me this was just as much a celebration of the adventures we’d already had together as well as the promise to keep on sharing our lives. Budget was a big factor in our planning, we only had whatever money we could save up and for us borrowing money, or spending a huge amount on one day wouldn’t have felt right when we were still in a rented flat and hoping to buy our own home at some point. After looking at a few venues, mainly barns, I realised that everything we liked was completely out of our price range. Then it dawned on me, why pay for a venue at all. We weren’t planning on inviting a huge number of guests as neither of us like to be in the spotlight, so why not just have the reception at home. My mum agreed to host in her little garden...'' How amazing is Laura's mom!?? Right? I love the idea of being home! And, bridey, you will too after you see the details! Enjoy!

Laura said, "... I was inspired to have the wedding as homemade as possible, we would save money but it would also make the day unique and special. We have lots of creative friends who got involved and helped us in all sorts of ways.''

If you're taking your wedding home, then it's super important to incorporate elements of home in your décor. This B+G did a fantastic job with the details...

Fantasy Friday ~ I Love You More Than Biscuits and Gravy

Trust me. If Candace and Rob love each other more than biscuits and gravy, then it's absolutely true love! Just wait until you see the biscuits they served at "biscuit hour". Yup! Biscuit hour! Not cocktail hour, biscuit hour! Totally wish I could have sunk my teeth into one (or twelve) of those!! Anyway... I love this wedding! I love it because Candace and Rob were clearly able to incorporate everything that they love about each other into their wedding. It really doesn't get much better than that... I'll let Candace tell you more about them. 

"Rob and I met in upstate New York at a songwriting event almost 2 years ago, and after a first date where we swapped songs for 8 hours, we were both sold haha. I talked about my dream of owning a therapeutic riding farm with lots of animals and nature trails, and he talked about his dream of converting an old barn into a recording studio."

Isn't this bouquet fantastic? The paper flowers were made from the song Rob composed for Candace. The song? Well, it's called, "I'll Be Your Biscuit".Rob, you look quite handsome!So cute!I'll be honest. Where I live, I don't hear the word "hootenanny" very often. I kinda like it!I am obsessed with both of these lovely ceremony pics!Biscuit hour!! And... They had a dude singing songs about biscuits during biscuit hour! STFU!!! I mean...
