Winery Wedding

Fantasy Friday ~ A Stunning, Bohemian Brunch Inspired, Italian Villa Inspired, Super Romantic, Styled Shoot

I know it's just the way the sun is hitting her face, but I love how it appears as though the bride has two different colored eyes (and like she's rockin' some seriously blue eyeliner!). SO fabulous! And, even though I know they're models, they really make a super hot couple! Right? And that flower crown she's wearing is absolutely spectacular!

Anyway, bridey, if you're looking for some kickass wedding inspiration, be it a lovely bohemian brunch (with a delicious looking pancake wedding cake!!), Italian villa or undoubtedly romantic, then you've just hit the mother load. This styled shoot is just cool. Like, really, really cool with amazing details that are so good, you'll want to eat them!
That invitation is exceptional! I love the chalkboardy feel, and the font!
Who doesn't love a sunflower? Exquisite bouquet!
Holy WOW!
How cool would it be to actually sit and dine at this table celebrating a marriage?!!
Okay. I think it's fair to say that I have a crush on the bride. Lovin' the makeup!!
My mouth seriously just watered! I may have to go make some pancakes!!
Don't cut it! Just pour the syrup together!
Thank you for sharing this incredible styled shoot with Bitchless Bride!!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Gorgeous SF City Hall Wedding Followed by a Breathtaking Winery Reception

Meagan and Robbie said their vows at city hall in one of my favorite cities in the world, San Francisco. I lived there eons ago (actually, not too far from city hall) but, I was too young and too broke to really appreciate everything SF had to offer. But, that's a whole other post for a whole other blog. Anyway... Meagan and Robbie had an intimately beautiful ceremony, together with their family and bridesmaids, and then a few days later, hosted their reception in Healdburg Wine Country.  

Robbie's family is from the East coast, and flew in for the festivities. Obviously, the wine was flowing, the sun was shinning, and the guests were having a lovely time. Bridey, I love how intimate and beautiful this wedding is. And, I also love that it was spaced out over the course of a few days. Then, Robbie got some real time with his family in-between all of the celebratory events. Enjoy! 

Meagan, you look beautiful! I LOVE your wedding dress, and your hair is sensational!
So, so, so cute!! 
A li'l fresh air before the ceremony...
Should we go in and do this?
I am in love with the bridesmaids dresses! Sequiny and lovely! And... totally something that would be worn again after the wedding!
Sexy.
Love a pic in the vineyards! And, Meagan, your makeup is fabulous!
Robbie, your black wedding band is super cool!
Such gorgeous scenery!
I could seriously walk away with that brie!
The colors and the ruffles... 
Thank you for sharing your elegant and lovely wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Intimate & Uniquely Etsy Wedding

Before you gorge yourself this Thanksgiving (like I am planning to do), I thought that as a special treat, I'd allow you to have a little candy first. Well, eye candy that is! And it won't add to the piles and piles of calories, but it will add to the piles of ideas for your wedding. Because this wedding? Well, this wedding is full of incredible details and extremely pleasing on the eyes.

Seriously, I'm dying over the long tables, I'm dying over all of the green and the adorable cake, but most of all, I'm dying over the love that is overflowing from the Maggie & Cliff! So, bridey, be thankful for this one. Be thankful for Maggie's brilliance, and be thankful that she wanted to let the world in to share all of these wonderful details with you! I mean really... If you were a fan of BB last year at this time, I can assure you that I am certainly whistling a different tune. (Um, here's my post from last year at this time... Is There Really Always Something to be Greatful for?!).

Loving the green... And those flowers? A MAZ ING!Soooooo.... cute!I love this photograph! The bridal party welcoming the bride and groom into the reception? Priceless. (Well, at least that is what I picture is happening...)OMG. To drink or eat first? That is the question.

Fantasy Friday ~ A Same Sex, Winery Inspired Brunch Wedding

I could use some wine right now. Seriously, looking at all of the beautiful scenery and stunning details in this post is making me thirsty. Although, it doesn't take much to get me good and thirsty these days. You brideys are giving me a serious beating. And there's nothing like a little bit of booze (or a lot a bit) to take the edge off. But, that's not what this post is about. It's about a FAB winery inspired brunch wedding shoot with two lovely ladies celebrating their union. 

A note for the collaborators: "This Ikat inspired vineyard wedding, designed by EightTreeStreet and Mollie Tobias Photography celebrates two beautiful brides on their wedding day in an outdoors rustic wedding with interior design details and patterns. A fabulous DIY component includes easy to make sparkly favor boxes and pendant decorations for table and food, the favor boxes are excellent to use for delicious goodies for your guests. The shoot includes a gorgeous spread for an outdoor brunch, provided by The Aubergine Chef, complete with a pancake wedding cake, heart shaped bacon bites, heart shaped cinnamon rolls, and mini quiches."

So bright. So inviting...Cut the cake? Nope! Cut the PANCAKE!! I mean... I am salivating over here! And see those champagne glasses? Filled with syrup with some French toast on top!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Romantic Winery Wedding

Sometimes photographs just speak to you... Know what I mean? Like, how many times have you looked at a picture of a piece of chocolate cake or a juicy cheeseburger, and then needed to devour some chocolate cake and/or a cheeseburger? Right? (For me, it's every time... I know... I ALWAYS have to bring it back to food...) Well, I had a similar experience as I was browsing Jenny & Matt's wedding photos. I seriously think they spoke to me. I felt like I was a guest, taking in the winery air, enjoying a fabulous meal under the tent and rockin' out to DJ Dojah!

Bridey, this is a wedding you don't want to miss! Absorb the details. Absorb the energy. And absorb the pure happiness that Jenny and Matt exude. Here's their kick ass wedding story.

From Alex of IQphoto Studio: "How did you meet?" We met while watching a Stanford football game at a local sports bar. We both went to Stanford and have many friends in common. Matt was sitting across the table from me and won me over with his wit. He was wearing a Stanford Construction shirt (he got his masters in construction management), and I said "Oh did you work construction at Stanford?" Matt replied, "actually I studied it there. You know, Railroad and Construction were the first two majors at Stanford. I wanted to do Railroad, but they don't have it anymore!" That pretty much did it for me.
