Fantasy Friday

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!

Fantasy Friday ~ A French Inspired Styled Shoot with an Adorable Dollface Persian Cat

Are you totally DY ING over those hot pink hydrangea arrangements? The gold chargers and flatware? OMG! Right? Well, it only gets better, bridey. This styled shoot is so fabulous, it will absolutely leave you begging for more! True story. (Sounds dirty, but I swear it's not a boudoir shoot!!) However, if you're a fan of anything sparkly and basically awesome, then go pour yourself some prosecco, turn on some indie rock and indulge! Seriously, there are sequins, tutus, gold, hot pink and a fucking dollface Persian cat for Gods sake! How could you not??

Anyway, bridey, if you are lucky enough to incorporate any of these details into your wedding, then you're my fucking hero. Especially, if you are somehow able to dress up a dollface Persian cat and have her walk down the aisle! I mean, who needs dogs when you have a cat?? 
Yes, that dress is for a little girl, but I'd totally rock it, and own it baby!
Sequins and stunning bouquets. What else do we need? Nothing!!
LOVE the hand painted table and the mismatched, overstuffed chairs! The bench is a nice touch too!
A tented, shabby chic chandelier is like the icing on the cake for me.
Stunning.
The escort cards were DIY garden pots with forks to hold each card... WOW!
Yes please!!
That's Pillsbury, and she's gorgeous!
Cutest pic ever!! And, can we talk about that tutu? Holy shit!!!
I'm freezing right now, but I wouldn't turn down that pink lemonade martini! Right???
Cheers! Thank you for sharing this kickass styled shoot with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ Historic, Simple and Stunning... Welcome to Tori & Cory's Wedding

I never open with a pic of a wedding cake (no matter how much I want to because of my obsession with cake), but this shot really seemed to encapsulate the feel of Tori and Cory's wedding day (I know, right?! They rhyme!). It's warm, elegant and beautiful; completely reflecting how I felt while browsing these photographs. Bridey, please note the ease to T+C's wedding day as it should be a lesson to all brides-to-be. 

The B+G were married in Bramwell, a very historic part of West Virginia. And even though it rained on and off throughout the day, the sun seemed to shine at all of the right times (Shit! Now I'm rhyming!!). I mean... Who cares if it rains?! You're getting married! And, that's what counts! So, bridey, enjoy this totally inspirational wedding, not just for the color palette, cake or flowers, but for the loveliness of the B+G.
I cannot get enough of this bouquet!! It's absolutely stunning!Gorgeous shot!

Covered train station during the rain... How perfect is that?

Ummm.... Can we just talk about Tori's nails? LOVE!Here we go!! Let's get married!What a cutie!! Super excited!!No more rain... 
Um... that's a great kiss! Just sayin'...Real men hold the train...This is a FAB cake topper! And the cake? Love the beautiful simplicity!Check out the faces on these two!!Tori and Cory, you are way too cute. Thanks for sharing with Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ An Inspirational, Sexy, Fall Styled Shoot

I'm a big fan of styled shoots. Perhaps it's because I planned weddings and did not design weddings (I mean, I had a hand in the design, but usually I left it up to the experts!) that makes me appreciate how much goes work goes into the process, but no matter what, styled shoots are a fucking awesome resource when it comes to wedding inspiration. See those Mr. & Mrs. mugs? Handmade. The lace-covered burlap runners? Handmade. The leaves on the table? Not handmade. But, they are from the trees on the location of the shoot. And the dishes, jars, and candle holders? Thrift stores. I know, right?!!

Bridey, OMG! Just wait until you see the stunning wedding dress the model is wearing. And, it's not one of those dresses that will only look good on a model. I can totally see it on women of all shapes and sizes (well, those of us who aren't afraid to show off our curves!). Anyway, if you are planning a fall of 2016 (or 2017) wedding, you're welcome. You're welcome to steal any and all inspiration! Have fun!

Um, this why I said it was a "sexy" fall styled shoot! Girl has got some GORGE legs!!OMFG... The wedding dress with it's intricate beading and chiffon train! AMAZE!! And the flowers are sensational! Holy shit!The warmth encapsulated in this photograph is intoxicating. Can't you just taste that pecan pie?! Those cinnamon dusted salted caramel and raspberry macaroons? Dessert and a hot toddy? Um, yes please!I mean... Holy shit with the dress, right? Thank you for sharing this beautifully constructed styled shoot with Bitchless Bride!!

Fantasy Friday ~ More Than Just a Rainbow Connection... An Intimate, Backyard Wedding

Holy shit with Claire's hair, right? Fucking amazing! Not only is it a perfect rainbow, but it's ombre too. I mean, that takes talent! And, it takes the right kind of girls to pull that kind of thing off, right?!! Anyway, welcome to Claire and Lane's Las Vegas wedding. Hosted in the backyard of a private home, these two did a fabulous job keeping their wedding day about the two of them. Claire and Lane knew they wanted a small backyard ceremony followed by an informal celebration, rockin' awesome food, drink and family. So... that's exactly what they did! 

Bridey, if you're looking for ways (and examples) to have a beautiful, simple wedding, then browse the pics. The cool-ass hair inspiration? Well, that's a freebie for those of you have the balls to pull it off. Enjoy!
Got to have a "before and after" wedding dress! OMG, I LOVE both of them and how different they are.Let's get a closer look at this stunning Pnina Tornai gown. I am obsessed with the corset!There's nothing like mama love!Lane, you look quite dapper yourself!The gold and royal blue look so elegant.I mean... That's utter happiness.

Fantasy Friday ~ Dark, Moody and Fabulous... A Victorian-esk, Gothic Inspired Shoot

Bridey, I think we've all seen quite a few black, red and white weddings, right? Be it in real life, blog posts, magazines, etc. And, while I love that color scheme, I love it even more when that same color scheme gets messy. Yeah, I love it when a little darkness gets thrown into this pretty palette. And today? Well, it's super messy... Actually, more like super awesome. I mean, just look at that dessert spread! Seriously, these talented vendors were able to convey their kickass vision through a dessert table! Now, that's pretty fucking cool if you ask me!

If you're looking to come to the dark side (sorry, couldn't help it!), then take a walk with me. Come... Let's breathe in the incredible metallic details, touch the gorgeous flowers and dig into that dessert display. Thinking about not wearing white? Then check out the stunning purple wedding dress. Bridey, this one is too good not to take in...
Loving the invitations and menu!Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.STFU! A MAZ ING! Something super cool? The flowers on the cake are made of wafer paper and painted with chocolate. WOW!!One of my favorite desserts in the whole world is a black forest verrine! I'd be in food heaven with both of those delicious treats!Yeah... Handmade faux flowers. I know, right? I had no idea either!!The contrast between the gold charger plate and the table are FAB!Care for a candy apple? And, btw... Can we just talk about how stunning her makeup is? I need this dress. I want this dress. This black wedding gown (by Camille La Vie) has a beaded bodice with a tulle skirt and purple underlay. Holy FABULOUS!Thank you for sharing this kickass styled shoot with Bitchless Bride. Tons of cool inspriation to play with!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Glamorous, Sexy, James Bond Inspired Shoot!

Well, hello there handsome. Seriously, doesn't it look like he's about to take a Dunhill (cigarette) out of his breast pocket and light it up? I know! Super Bondy... If he lit up, this pic would take on a whole other feel with its amazingly smoky atmosphere, right? Okay, clearly, I am wishing that I too could take a Dunhill out of my pocket, but that's not gonna happen (well, unless I am presented with a delicious shaken martini). 

Anyway, this kickass styled shoot took place at Vehicle Vault, a vintage car museum in Parker, Colorado. How cool is that?!! Just wait until you see the car they used! Holy shit! It's fucking awesome! Bridey, there's a ton of super cool treats in this styled shoot! I mean, there are Bond girls!! And, these Bond girls are rockin' gold body paint! Can you imagine if your bridesmaids were Bond girls with gold body paint?!! Yeah, kickass!! So, enjoy!!!!

I love a round menu card! So fab! And, I'm completely obsessed with the super fance font!Bond girl! Body paint! LOVE IT! Brideys, seriously, I think you should make your bridesmaids Bond girls!Yum.... I'll take anything shaken these days!Um, the cake and the car. Holy shit! Yeah, that's a 1954 Mercedes Gullwing. WOW! Yeah, these awesome vendors centered the vignette around this kickass car!I'm loving the shimmery red and gold décor!Damn, it's like all of my favorite things... Cocktails, gambling and dessert. I see no problem with that. Do you?

Fantasy Friday ~ A Badass Halloween-Inspired Styled Shoot

I love this shoot. I love this shoot for all of the stunning details, the gothic vibe, the "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" inspiration, and because of the model groom, Brandon Flowers. Just kidding! But, I swear to God this guy looks so much like him, that I about fell over when I saw the pics for the first time. What, bridey? You don't know who he is? WTF!? He's the lead singer of The Killers! Duh... I LOVE The Killers! Anyway... This styled shoot is damn magnificent. It's badass. It's borderline creepy (in an awesome way of course!).

Bridey, if you're looking to rock something different than a white wedding (um, just wait until you see the black wedding cake!), then allow yourself to get lost in this pile of inspiration, "dripping with decadent details and tons of vivacious color"! Yeah, totally had to steal that line from photographer, April Amodeo! Enjoy this masterpiece you are about to embark on, bridey, brought to you by an incredible group of vendors. I totally did!

Check out this groom, and now go Google image pics of Brandon Flowers."The bride was adorned in a sumptuous headpiece with hand-sculpted red satin roses and black lace-covered fans sparkling with Swarovski Crystals."That cake is absolutely phenomenal! I'm completely obessed with it!Stunning and vibrant!Fuck me, that's an amazing bouquet. I love all of the different texture elements here... The design of the linen, the sparkle of the charger plates, the voluptuous flowers...OMG. Is that a watermelon?A MAZ ING. A FUCK ING MAZ ING!!! Love this shot.Thank you for sharing this badass shoot with Bitchless Bride!! LOVE IT!

Fantasy Friday ~ Pumpkins, Apples and Dragons... Oh My! A Stunning, British Columbian Fall Wedding

Bridey, I totally cracked up when I received this wedding submission! Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful wedding with a ton of fantastic décor and color (I mean, there's a dragon for God's sake!). But, the very talented photographer, Will Pursell, opened his dialogue with, "Leanne and Andrew love Halloween, zombies, scary things, alcoholic things... and animals." Funny, right? I mean, who doesn't love alcoholic things and zombies? I do! I do!! And just wait until you see the photographs of the animals!

Anyway, you read that right... I said dragon. Leanne and Andrew did an amazing job incorporating their heritage into their wedding. Leanne is Chinese and Andrew is Greek, and throughout the day, they celebrated both as their families came together as one. Okay, that's about as mushy as I get! Just enjoy this fun-filled, fall wedding complete with a kickass dragon!!

Any guesses as to the wedding colors? Love the flasks! I'll take whatever is inside...It really doesn't get much cuter than that, right?Leanne and Andrew are huge animal lovers. I love how the kitty is just hanging out on her dress!They were married at the Unitarian Church in Vancouver.Every time I see this pic, I keep thinking the guests are throwing petals at the B+G! But, it's just the altar flowers.Whoa.HA! Love it!Bridey, if your groom isn't looking at you like this, then it ain't meant to be...I just had a baby heart attack. Please don't fall... Amazing shot of the cityscape and the Vancouver mountains!Totally lovin' the fall décor! It's festive and fun!

Fantasy Friday ~ My Big, Fat, Fake & Fabulous Wedding!!

Bridey, I don't usually share submissions that are posted on several sites, but this one? It's SO fucking good that I just couldn't help myself. Because you need to see what a little imagination and talented vendors can do for your wedding. And if you see it on Bitchless Bride or some other site, then you'll be a better bride for it! Seriously, it's that good! And, I'm that awesome for not caring about exclusivity or something close to it!

Anyway, why a big, fat, fake wedding? Well, according to the fabulous Andie Freeman, "The bride and groom were actually already married and would be renewing their vows at 7pm in front of a crowd that consisted of ladies that would soon be tying their own knot." How cool is that?!! And, based on the chemistry between the B+G, it's quite clear that they aren't models.

I want both of those dresses. Seriously, it's worth renewing my own vows just so I can wear these dresses!Those bouquets are so gorgeous! Right???Hi Amanda. Holy flawless makeup!Seriously! Holy fuck with the amazing flowers!!!See what I mean? That's the real thing, bridey! These two are clearly smitten!Andie Freeman: "Travis grinned as Amanda walked down the aisle for a second time to avow her love all over again. Travis and Amanda has written their own vows. As the first kiss came, the crowd let out a roar and they danced back up the aisle."Wow. Just, wow!I love the deep purple and gold! And the hot pink? AWESOME!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Sophisticated, Intimate, Country Garden Wedding

Brianna and Sam's wedding is probably among the most naturally beautiful weddings I've posted on Bitchless Bride. Photographer, Hilary Cam, said it best, "Picture a heritage house with chandeliers, lanterns and tulle contrasting with cascading sand dunes, dark enchanted forests, airy fern gullies and fields of yellow flowers and you have a glimpse of their spectacular wedding day. The wedding took place at Stanley Park an opulent historic house with a mood of elegance and refinement."

Bridey, this wedding exudes the same style and grace that the B+G so clearly portray. A simple, soft elegance with a touch of panache. I love that the bride and her maid of honor (MOH) had their hands in several of the gorgeous details (OMG! Just wait until you see the cake!). So, enjoy this super elegant, super enchanting (great word) wedding... I did!

HA! Such a fun photograph!Think this 'lil cutie is imagining what it will be like to be a bride one day?Brianna! You're stunning! Flawless makeup and beautiful hair! Seriously, one day, BB is going to become a redhead!Sam, you and the boys are quite dapper! LOVE the blue bow ties!Ring box with a side of jelly beans!WOW! Such a lovely venue and an amazing day!I can't... The flower headpiece and the one shoulder dress... She's just too adorable!The ceremony was set under a magnificent old fig tree, with lanterns filled with pink and peach roses swinging from the branches.So romantic! Sometimes I wonder if my hus can still lift me! OMG! You two wreak of love! Brianna, I'm loving the cuff!

Fantasy Friday ~ The Bonneville Salt Flats, An Extreme Cake Smash and a BMX Biker

Is that not the most incredible photograph you've ever seen? Looks 100% fake, but it's not. I know, right? Fucking fantastic! Heather and Ethen are standing on a section of the Bonneville Salt Flats that was completely covered in water making for such a beautiful pic, that it appears as though they were artificially placed! Totally looks like they are walking on water! WOW!

Anyway... I can't get enough of this wedding. While the salt flats are really cool, so are the rest of the deets and the peeps. Heather is staggeringly beautiful (like STAG GER ING LY) and if Ethen looks familiar to you, there's good reason... MTV's Nitro Circus ring any bells? Yeah, dude's pretty awesome! Aside from the beauty and the talent, there is a cake smash so messy that it's almost shocking, and some serious dancing! Bridey, this is a FUN wedding... Take some notes and enjoy!

Right. Stunning. And, doing her own hair!I totally need to buy that lipstick!Get the feeling that Ethen doesn't wear too many ties?How amazing is that?Favorite.Photograph.Ever.I love how he's checking her out!The front wheel isn't on the ground. Just sayin'.Walking on water??

Fantasy Friday ~ A Stunningly Beautiful Hawaiian Couples Session

As I always say, the best place to meet your sig other? A bar of course! That's where Kamalie and Merr met four years ago, and they have been inseparable ever since. You know how they say opposites attract? Trite, but true, right? Well, Kamaile is a lawyer and Merr is a welding supervisor. And while their day-to-day entails an entirely different set of rules, everyday they complement each other. (Just like my hus and me! We are super different, and it totally works! We complement each other quite well!). Kamalie and Merr love to go to EDM raves, travel and just have a ball together! On the day of the shoot, they were just having fun around Kaka'ako in Hawaii! Go take a look! Totally AWESOME!

I think I may go purple ombre with my hair... I LOVE how it looks!!It's clear that these two have a ton of fun together!!Such a FAB pic! I love a good smile kiss!What's so funny?!!!

Love this couples shoot! Thank you for sharing with Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ I Love You More Than Biscuits and Gravy

Trust me. If Candace and Rob love each other more than biscuits and gravy, then it's absolutely true love! Just wait until you see the biscuits they served at "biscuit hour". Yup! Biscuit hour! Not cocktail hour, biscuit hour! Totally wish I could have sunk my teeth into one (or twelve) of those!! Anyway... I love this wedding! I love it because Candace and Rob were clearly able to incorporate everything that they love about each other into their wedding. It really doesn't get much better than that... I'll let Candace tell you more about them. 

"Rob and I met in upstate New York at a songwriting event almost 2 years ago, and after a first date where we swapped songs for 8 hours, we were both sold haha. I talked about my dream of owning a therapeutic riding farm with lots of animals and nature trails, and he talked about his dream of converting an old barn into a recording studio."

Isn't this bouquet fantastic? The paper flowers were made from the song Rob composed for Candace. The song? Well, it's called, "I'll Be Your Biscuit".Rob, you look quite handsome!So cute!I'll be honest. Where I live, I don't hear the word "hootenanny" very often. I kinda like it!I am obsessed with both of these lovely ceremony pics!Biscuit hour!! And... They had a dude singing songs about biscuits during biscuit hour! STFU!!! I mean...

Fantasy Friday ~ A Fun-Filled Bar Wedding Complete with a Balloon Drop, Cake Smash and More!

When two bartenders marry, they get married at a bar. Right? Well, that's what Caitlin and Dustin did! They got married at the Brass House in Austin, Texas (Dustin used to work there), and apparently, it was the first wedding to take place at the BH. And, based on the fabulous pics, I doubt it will be the last. It's quite clear that every.single.person had an incredible time celebrating with Caitlyn and Dustin. It was laid back and fun (and based on what I've heard about the bride, she's clearly Bitchless!), with a kickass band!

Family and friends contributed to the ease of Caitlin and Dustin's wedding day with a DIY cake (which happens to be stunning), flowers and the fucking awesome balloon drop. The best part? Caitlin said that her wedding day was "exactly" what she wanted and that it was "perfect". I mean... Isn't that the goal, bridey? So, enjoy all of the special treats in this cool wedding! I did (especially when all the groomsmen dropped trou... true story).

Yup! TWO dresses! I don't know which one I love more!Incredible detail...You look beautiful, Caitlin!DIY cake. I know... Right? It's FAB!Gotta have your dogs in your wedding, and they must be dressed for the part!Ceremony on stage. Priceless.Yeah... There's some boob grabbing! And, I love it!

Fantasy Friday ~ A "Sweet" and Stunning, DIY Hawaiian Wedding

Aren't you dying over Jessica's hair? I mean the length, and the pure gorgeousness of the curls + the purple flower are enough to give me some serious hair envy. But, aside from the stunning nature of the bride, can we talk about how Aaron is looking at Jessica? Right? His face exudes utter joy; utter happiness. And Jessica? Well, you can tell, even by the back of her head, that she is smiling from ear to ear at Aaron. That, my dear bridey is what getting married is about... Utter joy and happiness. 

Jessica and Aaron met while Jessica was waitressing. Talk about a tip! Meeting the love of your life is a pretty awesome way to end your shift! Right?? The two are avid travelers, so it seemed only natural for Aaron to propose to Jessica while in Tuscany, Italy surrounded by its vast beauty. As for the wedding, the B+G returned to Hawaii to say their vows (they currently live in Guam), and the majority of items were DIY, including the ENTIRE sweet table (WOW!). Yup! The bride made all of the desserts herself, and her FAB wedding planner plated them on platters out of reused glassware. That's some serious dedication! Anyway... Enjoy the AMAZE deets of Jessica and Aaron's wedding!

Bling bling.Jessica, you look sensational, and so at ease.Beautiful. Just beautiful.LOVE IT!!!! That look is absolutely priceless!What a fabulous idea for the programs! I love the benches and rose petal lined aisle. This pic... OMG... This pic... I love it so much.

Fantasy Friday ~ #RedWhiteAndYou! A Fabulous 4th of July Wedding!

Wish I thought of this hashtag! #RedWhiteAndYou! Right? Totally perfect for a 4th of July wedding! And, where better to host a 4th of July wedding than the 200 year-old Publik House Historic Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts? Talk about patriotic! Seriously, Marisa and Evan really tied every single detail together while planning their holiday wedding. I mean, the venue, the clothing, the food and the vibe... Completely SPOT ON! Just wait until you see the FAB U LOUS food they served! OMG!

Bridey, if you're planning a 4th of July wedding, then look no further than Marisa and Evan's photographs for inspiration. They did an amazing job without getting sucked into the potential tackiness that can present itself when planning a holiday wedding. So, enjoy! And... Happy 4th of July!!

Burberry and bling? Sign me up!I adore Marisa's wildflower bouquet! So vibrant and beautiful! Speaking of vibrant and beautiful, look down. Hi Evan. You're quite dapper!Lovin' the red, white and blue!!So super cute!One of each please!That'll totally take the edge off before walking down the aisle. These are some seriously fabulous escort cards! LOVE THEM!!Let's be honest... I love me some delicious fancy food, but all American food like sliders, pigs and scallops wrapped in bacon are pretty fucking awesome too!Those centerpieces are so cool! Plus, they have candy, and candy is good!Um, Marisa's mother made all the favors. I know, right?! She used local produce to make salsa, sauces, pickles, etc.Fresh popcorn and cotton candy? Best.Wedding.Ever.Thank you for sharing this FAB 4th of July wedding with Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ Love, Laughter and Happily Ever After... A Breathtaking Disneyland Wedding!

Doesn't this photograph say it all without saying anything at all? Right? It's really fabulous! Although, if you're my hus, then your first instinct is to say that it reminded him of deadmau5. Silly man... Anyway, I adore Kimberly and Ryan's Disneyland wedding. It's classic yet completely out of the box too... I LOVE the way the B+G were able to incorporate their love for Disney (and the San Francisco Giants) into a whimsical and romantic evening; not usually two words usually in the same sentence. Plus, their guests are super awesome and can be seen rockin' Disney ears, and dancing up a storm!

Um... Not for nothin'... Kimberly and Ryan probably have one the best cake "cutting" pictures I have ever seen EVER! Seriously, it almost looks fake, but it's definitely authentic. Enjoy this fun and fabulous Disney wedding! I sure did!

Um, yeah!!! Kimberly! You look happy and stunning!WOW! Ryan, you're totally right out of a magazine!It really doesn't get much cooler than that! Or, does it? Look down!OMG! That's one hell of a bouquet!Beautiful shot... I'm thinking their creative photog was laying on the ground to capture this one!See what I mean about being romantic? This is amazing!This is not the kids table!!! And I love every second of it!!!This is awesome!!I mean... When in Disney, you gotta give your best man toast in Disney ears!Aside from making me feel totally out of shape (look at Kimberly's arms!!), this picture is so fucking FAB! I'm not usually a fan of the cake smash, but this is too good!Thank you for sharing your whimsy Disney wedding with Bitchless Bride!
