I'm pretty sure I have a girl crush on Holly. No, I really do. Yeah, Holly's the stunningly fabulous, effortlessly cool bride in these photographs. Her mom created the cool ass birdcage veil, and her wedding dress is from BHLDN. Emily, the photographer said that:
"Holly and Shane met 12 years ago when they were both traveling through Europe. As life would have it, though, they were not yet ready to settle down (what 16 year old really is, after all?). Fast forward a decade, add some higher education, a couple trips around the world and some major growing up, and you’ll find yourself at August 18, 2012, where this seemingly destined couple said their vows to one another in the backyard of Holly’s father in East Grand Rapids, Michigan."
So brideys, please enjoy this amazing eye candy, and you know what? Learn a little bit too... Because this wedding? Well, it's the kind of wedding you want to make your own.
One of the coolest parts of a backyard wedding? Getting ready at home where everybody is comfortable and happy.
Seriously? How cute is Holly? I mean...
I love the red shoes! I love that they are all different to go with all of the different shades of turquoise bridesmaids dresses!
Hell yeah! Lift 'em up! Oh, and what's YOUR something blue?
I am in a mood... A whimsical mood... A happy mood... An almost childlike mood... No, really I am! I can't figure out if it's because I am working with some great brideys lately or because Spring is finally in the air, but BB has the fever! And when you have the fever, you just have to go with it. Right? So why not be happy? Like deliriously fucking happy? And you know what is a happy color? RAINBOW! Which of course got me thinking about two things... The Rainbow Connection, by Kermit (be sure to watch the video... you'll thank me later for that stupid grin of yours), and how cool it would be to plan an over-the-top rainbow wedding!
Soooo... welcome to Fantasy Friday!! I am drooling over these photographs, and feel so inspired to push the limit with any bride who will allow me to do so... So c'mon, bridey! Get into the rainbow mood with me and let's have some fucking fun!
Gorgeous. Stunning. Ballsy.
Yes, I think it's real fur, but please don't kill the messenger (she says quietly). I wanted to share it because I think it's fabulous, not because I am taking a stand one way or another regarding animal rights (however, you all know that I have two cats, so I too am hoping it's faux!) Anyway....
Um, walk down the aisle in your Jimmy Choo's and then change into some rainbow Vans? Sounds good to me!
Yeah... There are no words... Well, except that the spotlight just might be off of you, bridey, for a little while as your guests take in the cuteness of the flower girls!
No words... None. Other then FUCKING FANTASTIC!
