You know that saying that says you can "judge a man by how he treats his mother"? Well, I find that you can pretty much judge anybody based on how they treat animals. Right?Read More
Okay, so obviously I know that Memorial Day is coming up, not the Fourth of July, but either way, I thought it was appropriate to rock a flag on Bitchless Bride leading up to the holiday. And, this wedding is totally going to make you cry with delight! Yes, I just wrote that, but it's true! You see, Kathleen really wanted to have a destination wedding in Italy at a beautiful vineyard, but knew the trip would be difficult for her guests. Sooooo, she and her hus, Daniel, brought Italy to their wedding. And, you know what? They did an A MAZ ING job capturing the essence of Italy. The décor is spot on, and so is the vibe.
Oh! Bridey, you know my love for anything cake, right? Well, just wait until you see the cakes that the B+G selected! Yes, CAKES!!! OMFG! Seriously, why don't I ever get invited to weddings with multiple cakes? Anyway... Enjoy this fabulously festive Fourth of July wedding! I'll let Kathleen fill you in on some of the deets!
Um... Could you bust?
The bridesmaids were Kathleen and Daniel's daughters... Sniff! Sniff!
Stunning!!! Damn, girl!
Hello, Italy... Welcome to Utah! LOVE how the chairs are arranged for the ceremony.
This one... ADORBS!
Kathleen: My Uncle John Lynch. When my dad passed and we got engaged I wasn't sure I wanted anyone to take my dads place. I decided I have been really close with my uncle my whole life, Uncle John loved my dad and held him with high regard and was honored to walk his niece down the aisle. He is also a retired Marine and a full time officer in the Sheriffs dept in Col. He is one of the few that gets asked to wear his Blues and march in NYC for the remembrance of 9/11. I remember coming down the stairs from my Bridal Suite and seeing him for the 1st time in his Blues, it was such a surprise and honor for me to walk with him as well. He looked very dapper; and it was perfect since it was July 4th.
I mean... So beautiful!
HAHA! Love it!! Totally something I would do!
Kathleen: The décor was a mixture of Italian Vineyard and Vintage Romance. We had real grapes throughout all of our flowers. We used a collection of Cigar boxes we collected from all of Daniel's favorite cigars for our centerpiece flowers, along with garden vases and candle sticks, Wine Barrels, Chandeliers and twinkle lights in the trees to soften all the wood. We had King Ranch Wood tables with Cream lace runners on the adults tables- Fruitwood Chairs, Ivory with Satin Champagne overlays on the 4 Kids tables. Satin Champagne with Lace runners on all the High Boy Tables for the Cigar Lounge and Bar and also for the antipasti station. We had a brown leather loveseat and chairs with granite table in the cigar lounge on the deck with the bar and Italian Soda station...
I was seeing how many adjectives I could squeeze into the title of this post. Just kidding! But, I probably could have added a few more just for fun because this wedding is certainly worthy of piles and piles of adjectives! Simply put? This wedding is splendid! Like, as somebody who has planned a million weddings and as a girl who loves glam, I am OB SESS ED! Not too mention, I am completely captivated by Masae's wedding dresses. Yes, I said dresses! The stunner you see up there? That's the second dress. Um, can I get a "HOLY SHIT"? Because that dress is damn sexy and simply striking! And, just wait until you see the first dress! OMG!
Bridey, all I have to say is go bold or go home! That's exactly what Masae and William did. They went bold! They went passionate and romantic with their color scheme! Red and gold are amazing together! That coupled with the beauty of the estate in which they were married? Priceless! Enjoy!
So super cute!
HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! Wow!!!
Masae, your smile is contagious! You look beautiful and happy!
Whoa.... And, not for nothing... Check out her nails! LOVE THEM!
Get ready for a FAB first look!
In the industry, we call this a double set. I love it!
Gorge! LOVE the gold charger plates and the deep red linen (and the rose on each plate!)!!
Pictures before the ceremony? Sure! Let's go!
So, Kat and Jamy got married in a castle in Connecticut. I mean... Doesn't that just seem so luxurious? Right? Say it out loud with me... "Kat and Jamy got married in a castle." I love the way that sounds, and I wish you could hear the fancy way I say it! Anyway... I'll put the booze down. So, besides the whole castle thing, I heard that Kat and Jamy were a pretty awesome, laid back couple who had a wonderful wedding day. Bridey, that's what it's all about. No, not the castle, the being laid back and awesome part! Seriously, there is no reason to not enjoy your wedding day!
And, there is no reason why you aren't going to LOVE the shit out of this wedding. As you scroll down, there is a cool l'il surprise for you to appreciate. It's so FAB that I kinda got stuck on this one (big) detail. Don't ask, just see for yourself! Enjoy!
I mean.... Awwwww...
Kat, that is one hell of a diamond!
Can we just talk about fucking awesome that pic is?
These girls clearly have a great time together! And....They look damn good doing it!
I couldn't do that. I could totally see myself reaching around that door, grabbing my hus and planting a big kiss on him!
I love everything about this shot. The lighting, the drama, the gigantic urn of flowers...
That's a FAB kiss!
Yeah... That's a sailboat. Isn't that crazy? The wedding is at castle, and there is a fucking abandoned sailboat behind the property!
