Here we go again, bridey! I am absolutely thrilled to share Day 2 of Phillipa & Anurag's wedding with you! In February, I shared their Western wedding with you, and today, it's time for you to drool over the stunning photographs, taken by the amazing Hilary Cam, of their Hindu wedding celebration. Seriously, you will be drooling, because it's filled with piles and piles of dynamic colors and energy, and truly incredible details!
OMG! Just wait until you see Phillipa and her 'maids in their super colorful lengha and saris. They are so absolutely stunning that you're gonna freak out! And, don't forget to check out their jewels and henna! I mean... Holy shit with the jewelry! Anyway... I'll let you get to it! Enjoy!!!
Amazing henna. Just gorgeous!Phillipa, you look beautiful.Nice sharanis boys!! You look great!!Wow! Check them out! Woot! Woot!Apparently, they tried to sneak up on Anurag for the first look, but the jingling bells and bracelets gave her away! Anurag still looked shocked and surprised when he saw Phillipa in traditional Indian outfit. Uh... Nice Rolls! Bring on the Baraat!!Yeah, look up! The girls are rockin' Gangnam style! Look down! The boys are giving it right back! An impromptu dance off in the street between the bridesmaids and the groomsmen started when Gangnam Style started playing! Oh YEAH!!Then everybody started dancing! Super fun!!Love. Love. Love.
Bridey, I totally cracked up when I received this wedding submission! Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful wedding with a ton of fantastic décor and color (I mean, there's a dragon for God's sake!). But, the very talented photographer, Will Pursell, opened his dialogue with, "Leanne and Andrew love Halloween, zombies, scary things, alcoholic things... and animals." Funny, right? I mean, who doesn't love alcoholic things and zombies? I do! I do!! And just wait until you see the photographs of the animals!
Anyway, you read that right... I said dragon. Leanne and Andrew did an amazing job incorporating their heritage into their wedding. Leanne is Chinese and Andrew is Greek, and throughout the day, they celebrated both as their families came together as one. Okay, that's about as mushy as I get! Just enjoy this fun-filled, fall wedding complete with a kickass dragon!!
Any guesses as to the wedding colors? Love the flasks! I'll take whatever is inside...It really doesn't get much cuter than that, right?Leanne and Andrew are huge animal lovers. I love how the kitty is just hanging out on her dress!They were married at the Unitarian Church in Vancouver.Every time I see this pic, I keep thinking the guests are throwing petals at the B+G! But, it's just the altar flowers.Whoa.HA! Love it!Bridey, if your groom isn't looking at you like this, then it ain't meant to be...I just had a baby heart attack. Please don't fall... Amazing shot of the cityscape and the Vancouver mountains!Totally lovin' the fall décor! It's festive and fun!
I really, really love this wedding. I know I tend to say that a lot when I post weddings on Bitchless Bride, but you know what? I only post what I love, and what I think you will love too, bridey... And, this is no exception! Just wait until you see all of the goodies in store for you! So, get ready to pin your heart out because these pics are chock full of some serious inspiration!
Dana and Glenda put together this stunning wedding filled with juicy DIY touches (OMG! Wait until you see the brooch bouquet!!), cool ass décor and tasty tid bits all the way down to the superhero bow ties (and socks) the groomsmen wore. Right? I am absolutely in love with the escort cards, and everything alcoholic (you'll see what I mean!). So, bridey... Are you ready to be inspired? Good! Ready, set, go!I'm drooling over the hair...Are you fucking kidding me? LOOK at this GORGEOUS bouquet! Holy DIY...So sweet. My eyes are welling as I type...SUCH a great idea... And beautifully done too!So happy together... Fabulous photograph!Look up! Okay... Now, look down!!! I know... I want the shoes too.Those are some super unique escort cards!
That's a hot pic. Seriously, I feel like I haven't seen very many wedding albums where I walk away saying, "that photograph is sexy." But, this one? Hot damn. Erika and Tim are HOT! Right? So, your homework assignment, bridey? Take a moment on your wedding day (ovbi with your hus), and take a few sexy photographs. Get excited! Okay... Moving past the sexy pics. I totally love this wedding. Not only are Erika and Tim hot and awesome, but it was super important to them that their wedding incorporated who they were as a couple and individually. You see, Erika could kick all of our asses because she has a black belt in Tae Know Do, and Tim is also a martial arts enthusiast. Just wait until you see the groom's cake!
They really wanted their wedding to be laid back and simple. Erika said that, "I just want everyone to come and have a good time and be comfortable." and based on the photographs, I'd say that they succeeded. Living in Georgia, they wanted a venue that truly captured the south. Not that anybody would accuse them of being country by nature, but because several of their guests traveled from abroad to be there, they wanted them to experience a real southern wedding.
I don't know this for sure, but I am guessing that these pics are in memory of a family members who have passed... A lovely way to remember without getting too sad.What a lovely first look!Great photograph! I LOVE the bridesmaids dresses!I love everything about this ceremony... It's rustically fabulous.The cuteness factor is almost too much.
This is an absolutely incredible wedding filled with such amazing energy and love, so if tears of joy aren't streaming down your face by the end of this post, then something is wrong with you! Just kidding. I was trying to be super dramatic (must be the cold medicine), and it's just not me. Anyway, Ericka and Emily met while serving in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia. I mean, shit... I met my hus in a bar (and was pretty proud of how strong we're still going), and these two meet in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia? Whoa. Talk about meant to be...
Anyway... From the Peace Corps all the way to Brooklyn. That's where E&E are currently residing. And on beautiful fall day, they exchanged vows by the lake in Prospect Park. Take a look...
I think I would look really cute in suspenders. Seriously. I think I need some.
I'm sorry, but these peeps are cool!
OMG. That headpiece!
Wait for it... Okay! Look down!!!
It really doesn't get much cuter!
The brides and their party took in the colorful murals in the neighborhood.
Such a fun bridal party!
Simply in LOVE with the bouquets!!
Joy. That's adulterated joy.
I want to be friends with Natasha and Gayan... Seriously, and it's not just because they are a super handsome couple with eclectically fabulous taste, but because they are cool and stayed true to themselves and their heritage when it came to their wedding. And you know how much I dig a bride and groom who keep it real during the planning and truly enjoy their wedding day...
So, Natasha and Gayan met and live in Washington, DC, but after Gayan proposed, Natasha knew she wanted to have the wedding in her hometown in the Tampa Bay area. Because their guests were traveling from all over the world (Gayan's grandmother came all the way from Sri Lanka), they wanted to spoil them with all that the Tampa Bay has to offer... The beaches, city life, historic areas, gorgeous weather... Not to mention a wonderful place to be for a mid March wedding!
The ceremony and reception took place at the Palmetto Club, in Lithia, FL. The site encapsulated exactly what the couple wanted. An elegant ceremony featuring bits and pieces from the bride's Cuban culture, and the groom's Sri Lankan heritage. And a versatile reception space with ceilings tall enough for stilt walkers!!!
Natasha and Gayan's wedding was the perfect combination of traditional elegance with a multicultural twist that kept the day beautiful and exciting!
So cute. I love the way Gayan looks as he takes in Natasha for the first time.
Not a bad looking bunch! I am completely melting over the blue and purple orchid!
