Fantasy Friday ~ A Vintage, Steampunk Elopement... Quite Simply, a Very Cool Styled Shoot

I love this styled shoot. Like, everything about it! I love the "models" (they are girlfriend and boyfriend), I love the fantastic DIY elements, I love the creative photography... OMG! I really love everything about this shoot! Seriously, it's just so fun and clever! And, in typical BB form, I'm kind of obsessed with the cake. It's beautiful, and I found myself wishing for a fork so that I could dig in... Anyway, I love this post so much that I am going to let Veronica Rose of Roni Rose Photography tell you more about it the inspiration which lead to such fabulousness. (PS - Totally love how Roni starts the convo!!)

RRP: "Every year I like to set up a styled shoot that reflects what the modern wedding world has become; A place for personal expression rather than a traditional template that needs to be followed. I immediately had Serena and Kent in mind as models. Serena is my tattoo artist. She is one of the most artistic people I know. My inked skin is a testament to that. During our sessions together she's spoken so fondly of her boyfriend Matt. I knew immediately that I'd love him. Matt is a chef, and one of the sweetest men I've ever met."
RRP: "Our vision for the shoots we do are based around trying to create an artistic expression of the couple, and they made that so easy for us. These two just ooze joy and love! I also like to keep our styled shoots in the realm of attainability, rather than a large production that would be difficult to achieve during an actual elopement, so much of what you see is a DIY by yours truly."
Serena, you look beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE your red lipstick!!!
RRP: ..."the boutineer is made out of some of our old film negatives and flash bulbs."
I think it's fair to say that the camera likes Matt. And, a chef too? Oh dear God! Serena, you're a lucky girl! 
Let's take this outside...
This is creepy awesome!
So cool!
RRP: "I used a pair of ape hanger handle bars to create an alter."
Right? Doesn't that cake just scream, "GET A FORK!!"?
Thank you Roni, for sharing such a kickass shoot with Bitchless Bride! I think we are all much cooler now.

Fantasy Friday ~ A Styled Shoot - Steampunk & Urban Awesomeness

I'm freaking out over this cake! Right? Aren't you? It's so cool, and uber detailed that I can't stand it! I mean... There are dragon flies, keys and gears. Not to mention the magenta(ish) and turquoise colors... WOW! Last year, I posted a fucking amazing steampunk wedding, although instead of a "traditional" steampunk wedding cake, the B+G rocked a dragon... wedding cake. Holy shit! Either way, I'm completely impressed. Seriously, imagine if this (or a dragon) was in the middle of the room, bridey, just staring at your guest?!!! Talk about breaking out of the box! I'd say the box would officially be squashed! 

Bridey, if steampunk isn't your thing, who cares! There is so much inspiration to be taken from this post, steampunk and otherwise. Simply scroll down and be prepared to be whisked away by the insanely vibrant colors, FABULOUS florals, table runner, lighting, gowns, etc.!! Have fun with this one! I totally did!

Love the China and gold flatware!!Airbrushed gears anybody? How awesome is that?!!Bridey, lighting changes everything! Obvi, this is a styled shoot, but look how the pink lighting changes the feel of the space! Imagine what it would do for your wedding?!!!See the table runner? Pages from an old book.Holy shit with the cake! Right? HOLY SHIT!The flowers in this shoot are fucking amazing.WOW! Just, wow! Amazing flowers and is that a lightbulb? Yes it is! Super clever! LOVE IT!I'm kinda obsessed with her turquoise nails and gold jewels!FAB vintage typewriter!Great scene! Dying over the purple wedding dress!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Masquerade, Steampunk, Dragon Cake Kind of Kickass Wedding!

Every now and again, I receive a submission on Bitchless Bride that is so outside of what I see and do on a daily basis (uh, my day job as a wedding planner) that I want to jump up and down. Seriously, I feel this wave of AWESOME wash over me, and this is one of those jump up and down times. Although it is not my awesomeness washing over me, it is my awesomeness that is doing the sharing of this unique masquerade, steampunk cool wedding.

You see, Heather and Chad had a festive masquerade ball themed wedding at Urban Light Studios. Complete with board games, a rad dragon cake, actors, the four seasons as bridesmaids, and steampunk groomsmen, the night was a lively adventure. Full of fun and unusual details, yet elegant at the same time, Heather and Chad mastered their theme all while embracing the sanctity of marriage. Now how kickass is that?

Holy corset! I can't breathe just looking at it, but I LOVE the colors!!Just look at this bunch of bridesmaids and groomsmen!! There is so much to look at in these photographs!The couple stood in a middle of a circle of guests for the ceremony and launched into the first dance, where their family and friends threw leaves onto the dance floor.
