Winter Wedding

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Tim Burton Inspired, Super Glamorous Winter Wedding

As we gear up for Halloween, I thought a wedding chock-full of goodies was definitely the way to go. Although, instead of filling your bellies, this kickass wedding will absolutely fill your mind with a ton of eye candy! And, candy is candy, right? Well... this candy won't make your wedding dress tight! It will only make your brain swell with cool ideas and inspiration.

Bridey, if this post screams Tim Burton to you, it's because Lynzy and Ian are huge fans of his, and worked hard to incorporate his wild imagination into their glamorous wedding. And, you know what? They nailed it! Seriously, just wait until you see the dessert spread and all of the fucking awesome "décor". Plus, I think you're going to die when you see Lynzy's shoes.

Lovin' the invitation and that bouquet! Right? Holy shit with that bouquet!!!Best boutonniere ever!DYING over Lynzy's birdcage veil and the bridesmaids fabulous headpieces!RIGHT?!!! Aren't those red shoes are insane? And the bottoms? Holy fuck!!!Lynzy thinks that Tim Burton writes the most romantic love stories.Let's make it official!Lynzy and Ian are a damn sexy couple.

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ What Do Steampunk, Japan and Jazz Have in Common? Julia and Ben!

Probably the best part of my job is learning how the bride and groom met. Take Julia and Ben for instance. They are both from the US and yet they met overseas while studying Japan! I mean... How cool is that? I guess that sometimes all you have to do is travel five thousand miles away from home to meet your soul mate! Right? And since the day they met, Julia and Ben have been joint at the hip, so it was no surprise when they began planning their wedding in Julia's home town in Minnesota.

When it came to the wedding plans, they chose Steampunk inspired elements and Victorian costumes from the Guthrie Theatre (1920’s attire to celebrate Julia's family Jazz history). Apparently, her grandfather opened the first integrated jazz club in Roseville, MN which played host to Percy Hughes and Prince Rogers (um, Prince’s Father)!! I'm sorry, but that that's like the coolest thing I have ever heard! I love how Julia and Ben were able to build everything that was important to them into one day; certainly a day they will never forget!

I must admit, the last thing I wanted to do is post anything winter related due to the ridiculously horrid we suffered on the East coast, but this wedding was too good to pass up!!! I mean, just look at those gold Uggs!I love Julia's spunk! Her sense of humor and grace show in every picture!Gorgeous. Just fucking fantastic! Talk about bold and beautiful?!!!!Fucking top hat. LOVE IT!!!!I almost didn't want to show this you this, bridey. Because I am so sick of the snow, but it's too cute to keep it a secret!They rode to the church (and the venue) with a bus driver Ben has worked with for years at the YMCA (Ben's a youth director there).I can't... Julia, I'm no softie, but I totally teared up when I saw this pic!
