Fantasy Friday ~ A Great Gatsby Inspired, Dance Your Ass Off Kind of Wedding

Bridey, you know that saying, "Have fun, but not too much fun!"? Well, it's rare that I would use that to describe a wedding (sorry, but, the truth hurts), but, Regan and Troy's wedding? Well, I'm pretty sure the guests had a pile of fun, if not too much. Aside from the choreographed dancing, complete with costumes (Regan is a dance instructor), and the tons and tons of decorative sequins, I love that the B+G trusted their florist to take their Gatsby theme and run with it. Like, they gave him NO other details. They literally had know idea what to expect as they walked into the venue. True fucking story! WHOA!! And the florist? Well, he did not disappoint!

Seriously, can you imagine? It was just as much of a surprise to Regan and Troy as it was to everyone else! I mean.... Applause to the B+G! Bridey, I'm certainly not saying that you shouldn't have any input, but it is absolutely imperative to trust the vendors you hire, and that is exactly what Regan and Troy did! And, OMFG, just wait until you see the décor! A MAZ ING!! Enjoy! And don't forget to soak in each and every detail of this FAB wedding!!

This photograph makes my eyes well with tears.
So cool... 
Regan, you are stunning! And, I love the dark purple calla lilies!!
There's my city again... Sweet home Chicago!
I mean... The dresses and the sign are so FAB!!
Oh yeah!!!!
I have been pulled over more times that I should admit publicly, and looking at those GORGEOUS cars behind the signing book table, I feel my knees getting weak.
Check out the stacked cigar boxes in the middle of the escort card table! OMG!

Super Stylish Sunday ~ Fuchsia, Sequins and Beads! Oh My!

Every now and then, it's totally refreshing and exciting to come across a couple so unique, and so engaging that it brings tears to my eyes. Enter Alison and Moody... Just look at their wedding attire! Amazing, right? I am in love... with both of them! The groom, Moody, hand decorated his suit. Seriously! What man do you know that would hand decorate is fucking suit? NONE! But, Moody? Yeah, he not only hand decorated it, but he even took the left over fabric from Alison's wedding dress (cut from the fittings)  to make small, delicate flowers and pearls for the little button hole bouquets. I mean... 

And Alison's dress? Holy shit! I am DY ING over it! Just dying! Not only does she look amazing, but I love seeing brides who are brave enough to truly break out of the, "I have to wear a white wedding dress on my wedding day" thing. And she just ROCKS it!

Well... enough outta me. Alison & Moody's photographer will walk you though the beauty of the day. Enjoy!

Words from the Photographer, Ms. Charlene Morton: Last Wednesday I had the midweek pleasure of photographing Alison and Moody’s Bristol Wedding. The guests gathered on the sunny steps of Brisol Registry Office ready to greet the Bride and Groom who entered together. A rush of fuchsia pink ran through the guests outfits, satin ties were worn by the grooms party, whilst elements of the colour could be found throughout. The style of the day was very creative, with a punky, and individual edge. I especially loved the matching shades worn by the grooms party, making them look like they were 1940's mobsters! 

The wedding party were led inside into an ornate, wood panelled room and the ceremony commenced with a room full of close family and friends.

Moody had hand decorated his black suit with fuschia coloured sequins, and beads which swirled over his shoulders and down his lapel. Not only pulling the wedding’s colour themes together, but also adding a personal, creative touch. Moody had also hand sewn each of the small button hole bouquets, from inches of fabric which was removed from the bottom of Alison's wedding dress in the fitting stages. The fabric was cut into small delicate flowers and small pearls added to complete the mini bouquets – such a lovely idea!

We made full use of the Registry Offices main front steps, we shut the heavy black doors and posed the entire wedding party for a full group shot, which was full of smiles, hugs and improvised confetti!

The guests then embarked on a walk from the steps down to the water side. We made use of the lovely harbor scenery en route to take some group shots.
