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 ~ A Fabulous Chicago Wedding at Revolution Brewery

The theme for this week is Chicago. Kidding! Well, sort of... As you know, bridey, I don't do themes, but this week apparently I do; inadvertently!! Granted, I love Chicago (that's where I'm from), but to post two weddings this week from Chicago is purely a happy accident! Maybe I'm homesick. I guess I'll talk to my shrink about it...

Anyway, I do love it when a B+G decide to get married in a bar. No, I don't have a drinking problem, but celebrating your wedding outside of a ballroom is certainly a nice break from the norm. April and David's wedding day started at the Westin River North and ended at Chicago's Revolution Brewery. The intimate ceremony and reception were hosted at the brewery; a steep yet stunning contrast to the peach and ivory florals rocked by the bride and on the tables. Giant beer barrels offered spectacular décor, and tours of the brewery were just a few of the unique aspects of April and David's kickass Chicago wedding! Enjoy!

I love every.single.thing. captured in these pics! Seriously, I may have to break down and buy those Jimmy's, I'd absolutely wear those black bridesmaids dresses, and the rock? DAMN.
More diamonds. Stunning...
WOW. Just WOW.
April, you and your dad are SO cute together!! I bet you two have a lot of fun!
Ta-da!!! The B+G shared their first look along the upper level of the beautiful riverwalk just outside of the hotel. 
Okay... What the fuck is that? A balloon? Why is it there?
S.E.X.Y.
Love the passion behind this kiss.

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Button Pushing Couple & a Gorgeous, DIY, Texas Wedding

If you know my hus and me, then you know that part of what makes us tick as a couple is that we 100% push each other's buttons. We both know exactly where to push to get a rise out of the other. And, sometimes we push in good fun, and sometimes we push because we are intentionally trying to annoy the shit out of each other. But, either way, there isn't a soul alive whose buttons I'd rather push than his. Because it works. Because, we work. And Jacqelyn and Brady? They're the same way. Total button pushers. 

Bridey, don't ever let someone make you second guess your relationship simply because they don't get it. As long as you and your sig other get it, then fuck the rest of them. Seriously, look up. See how Brady is looking at Jacqelyn? Does anything else really matter? No. And you know what? Their wedding is super GORGE! So, enough preaching outta me... Go scroll and enjoy!
I mean... This is too cute!
Yeah... Jameson is always good!
Jacqelyn... WOW! That is a sensational floral headpiece! OMFG!!!
Get out all of your crazies now, kiddos!!
Whoa... I thought Jacqelyn's headpiece was amazing... But, these two? So super cute!
Brideys, this is how you want your sig other to look at you during your ceremony... As if nothing else exists; as if you two are the only ones in the world at that moment in time.
Push my buttons is what I say! 
Jacqelyn and her bridesmaids were down to the wire finishing the centerpieces (on the wedding day) even after working all day, and night. It was worth it, but sometimes DIY can make you cry!
Best.Day.Ever.
This little girl has got some serious gumption. She's definitely on a mission. And, she's beautiful!
Thank you Jacqelyn and Brady for sharing your kickass wedding with Bitchless Bride!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Kristin & Erin... A Bit Little Country & A Little Bit Rock 'N Roll

Kristin and Erin are madly in love. OMG, I seriously LOVE writing that! Because that's how it should be, bridey! I mean... If you're not madly in love, then what's the point of all of this? Melissa, their talented photographer, mentioned that these two were totally and completely in love with each other, and it showed in the photographs. And you know what, bridey? You will not be disappointed. It's apparent that they are crazy about each other, and the photos really do prove it (and there is a ton of amazing DIY elements, and straight coolness too!!)!

They got married on a ranch outside of Loveland, Colorado. And, holy shit, just wait until you see the incredible view of the mountains, and the breathtaking rolling hills and countryside. Kristin and Erin love to camp, fish and ride horses together, so their venue is perfect. But, what I love the most? The mashup of both of their styles captured in their wedding. Don't let me spoil it... See for yourself! 
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.  
Um, totally lovin' the black accents to go with Kristin's Sottero and Midgley gown.
Here I am!!! Totally something I would do!
Melissa: While walking each of them out to the first look separately they both told me in the exact same words, "I think I'm going to throw up." They were so anxious being away from each other. The feeling clearly disappeared the second they saw each other, and their first look was one of the most emotional and beautiful I've ever captured.
Kristin's mom did all of the bouquets and Kristin added paper flowers made from pages of her favorite book, Harry Potter.
I love that all of the bridesmaids dresses are different.
That stunning entrance (to the ceremony) was made by Erin's grandmother. AND... Erin made the arch at the altar! Talented dude!
Erin... The look on your face. OMFG.
Vows!!!!!! Love it!
Such a beautiful shot with the mountains in the background.
If you know me at all, then you know that I am a HUGE fan of stripes. So, when I saw the striped linen? I immediately fell in love! (BTW, their table numbers were album covers from their favorite bands.)
FAB Adventure Time cake topper!
Kristin & Erin, thank you for sharing your lovely wedding wtih Bitchless Bride!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ An Unfussy, Super Classy, Completely Bitchless Wedding

Wanna know why I fucking love Sara? Because when Sara envisioned her wedding, she wanted an "unfussy" (my new fave word), stress free day with lavender accents + friends and family. Period. And, that's exactly what Sara and Chris' wedding day was all about. No fuss, no stress and surrounded by the people they love. Bridey, the cool thing? Their wedding definitely looked like they fussed over the details.

With it's beautiful soft colors, perfectly arranged garden chairs, manicured grounds and a modest elegance captured throughout the entire day, I'd certainly believe that there could have been some stress while planning. But, when you marry your favorite person in the world (which is clearly evident by the pics) the little things really don't matter. Enjoy!

WOW! The lace and beading on Sara's wedding dress is breathtaking.Totally love this pic! Still not quite sure what they're looking for though! You look quite dapper, Chris! Sara, you look like you're up to no good...The raw emotion encapsulated in this photograph just put me over the edge...Hell yeah!!!! We did it!I'm sure that the advice got better and better as the night wore on.I can't help it... This cake topper makes me laugh out loud.Such a pretty cake. I love the middle layer with the soft Swiss dots.Break it down!
Thank you for sharing your stunningly gorgeous wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ There's No Kind of Love like Twitter Love...

Dar and Kerry? They met online. And, by online, I mean Twitter. Definitely not what you expected when I said that they met online. Right? Me either! And, here's another unexpected tid bit... Dar is short for Darlene (somehow, I didn't pick that up right away), and Kerry is a dude (didn't see that one coming either!). So, Dar retweeted something Kerry had tweeted, and then invited him out for coffee ASSUMING that Kerry was female! How fucking FAB is that??? Clearly, Dar was surprised by the man who showed up for coffee, but at the same time, thought he was adorable and smart. Talk about fate, right?? I mean... Holy shit! It doesn't get any fate-e-er (new word I just made up) than that!

But, outside of the kickass story of how Dar and Kerry met, their wedding was also pretty kickass! The first look was on LaSalle Street next to the church where they had their wedding ceremony, followed by a patio reception at the Douglas Park Fieldhouse, with passed signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres & a delicious buffet dinner. Love it! And, OMG! Bridey, don't miss the naked cake and FAB décor! Enjoy!
I love it when brides wear flowers in their hair.You had me at sunflower...Picture of a picture! She's like, "Am I doing it right? Is this okay?"Bourbon bottles and branches... Love this shot...W.O.W. This cake is gorgeous. And, it's completely naked!Thank you Dar and Kerry for sharing your story and wedding with Bitchless Bride!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Romantic, Rustic, and DIY Mountain Wedding

That picture looks like two models posing for a styled shoot, right? I know! But, it's totally not. Bree and Chad are a real couple, and this is a real wedding; it just happens to be fabulous! Tony, their photographer, said that these two were friends for quite some time before the relationship took a romantic turn, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see why. Chad is a talented musician and silversmith & Bree is an artist, hair stylist, and a curator of beautiful things. Clearly, this B+G are totally 'team awesome', and positively bring out the best in each other (seriously... just look at the pics below!).

Bridey, there is no doubt that you will love this the details and aesthetics in Bree & Chad's wedding. There are absolutely stunning DIY deets for you to drool over (like fucking awesome dried flowers, signs, etc.), and dare I say the vibe is simply intoxicating? Enjoy!

See Bree’s wedding dress? It was her grandmother’s... LOVE IT! Just wait until you see her in it!Stunning and unique! Love the dried flowers!Proud mama....Chad's just hanging out, trying to be all chill...It might be her grandmother's dress, but it certainly looks like it was made for Bree! Right?Can we please talk about how great Bree's nails are? The dark polish with the vintage wedding dress is FAB!Wait, wait, wait... Chad, is that velvet! For real? I love you even more now!! STFU!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Medieval, Roman Church, A Gorgeous Italian Countryside and a Stunning Wedding

I know... Right? Is this B+G not the sexiest couple you've ever seen? Seriously, check out Gaziella's wedding gown. Absolutely STUN NING! Gaziella and Paolo got married on a beautiful countryside just outside of Rome, Italy. The bride had always dreamed about her wedding day being on the countryside of Nepi (near Rome), and that is exactly what she and Paolo did! Bridey, this wedding is so magnificent that writing about it will hardly do justice to the beauty enclosed in this post.

If you are interested in an outdoor wedding with soft, yet beautiful colors, simple yet stunning décor and plenty of amore to go around, then scroll through these photographs and absorb some truly incredible inspiration! You don't have to get married in Italy to mimic this amazingness!! Although, why the hell not?!! Enjoy!
That wedding gown is damn sexy!Isn't he adorbs?!! That's Valerio, Gaziella & Paolo's son. Paolo: “With the birth of our son, I realized how much I loved her, and how much I wanted her to become my wife."Lovin' this action shot!! And that car? A MAZ ING!Gaziella: “Since I was a little girl I always dreamed about my wedding day in the countryside of Nepi, near Rome, the best place during the summertime!”These very special flower arrangements are made with moss, white naomi roses, alchemilla, green hydrangea and hazel brunch for the Medieval church “Castel Sant’Elia”. Paolo has sparkling eyes...WOW! What an incredible church! Flower petals and rice throwing! LOVE IT!You two really are a gorgeous couple!I mean... Could it get any more beautiful or romantic?

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Super Colorful, Super Cool, Dia De Los Muertos Accented Wedding

Aurora and Jon are totally my kind of peeps. This B+G wanted an intimate ceremony followed by a rockin' party. And you know what, bridey? That's exactly what they had... A huge celebration! Apparently, their wedding day was widely anticipated as they have been together for quite some time, leaving their guests anxiously awaiting the big day. The cool thing is that they had the best of both worlds; moments of intimacy and then moments surrounded by friends and family. See? You can have it both ways! You just have to be smart with your wedding planning!

Bridey, the colorful elements of this wedding will do nothing more than leave you smiling. So, take note. Seriously, Aurora and Jon's wedding is a kickass example of having exactly the wedding you want without the bullshit. LOVE IT!!! Enjoy!
Fans and flowers, baby... Fans and flowers...Aurora, you're the cutest! I love how you're trying not to laugh/cry.A different way to express the joining of two families.Such amazing embraces!OMG... Could ya' bust over the cuteness here??Aurora, your necklace is kickass! I love that it's pink! I love that it goes beautifully with your bouquet!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Stunningly Beautiful, Super Romantic, Mansion Wedding

I love this wedding, and I have a couple crush on Cindy and Dane. (Seriously, how could I not? Look at that dress! And, the dude's name is Dane. Total crush.) You know why, bridey? Because I heard that they were awesome to work with, insanely in love, super in sync and nice people. From a vendor perspective, it really doesn't get much better than that. Jackpot! Seriously, if wedding planners and other wedding vendors knew ahead of time what it would be like to work with each couple prior to the planning, the world would be a much nicer place. Working with lovely people who are genuine and genuinely nice is what it's all about, right? Or it should be for that matter!

Anyway, outside of the serious couple crush I am rockin', there are so many fab deets to share with you, bridey. I mean, the dress is total kickassery, but there is so much more! So, kick back, relax and enjoy the post!
I'm lovin' the subtle mint green Badgley Mischka shoes!I feel warm inside.Cindy, your wedding dress is absolutely incredible! I love the beading and the cut! You look amazing!This should be in a glossy... Cindy is GORGE and this pic is so FAB!!The "ring" boxes. Hell yeah! That's a great shot!!Such a fabulous way of politely saying, get off you're fucking phone during the ceremony. Such cuties!!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Bright, Botanical, Adorably Mushy, Colorado Wedding

Meet Pari and Gavin. They are the beautiful couple shown in the photograph above. I think it's quite fitting that Pari's tattoo says "so it goes" considering that according to their talented photographer, John Bosley, the B+G were super laid back and in love. In fact, I love what John wrote about Pari and Gavi so much, that I am going to let him take over. Bridey, you should be lucky enough to have one of your vendors describe you and your sig other like this. Because this is the whole reason behind the party.

"I feel like there’s a lot that I could say about Pari and Gavin. To say that they are crazy in love would be an understatement. To say that they are completely comfortable and adorable in front of the camera would be obvious. To say that they are two of the nicest people I’ve had the privilege of photographing would be the truth.Their wedding day has to be one of my favorites so far. Instead of weighing the day down with schedules and letting tradition control events, it was a light, carefree day full of smiles and laughter. Friends, family and good conversation took priority. Cakes got cut, toasts were made and bouquets got tossed, but tying it all together were the people who Pari and Gavin love most enjoying a beautiful day together."
I love how chill Pari is... Just sipping her coffee like it ain't no thing...That flower girl is beyond adorbs! And the flower crown? Priceless! Holy bright and gorgeous bouquet!Lots of foxes these days...So much better than the typical shoes I see with tuxedos!I think it's awesome that these girls are having fun!Can't you just hear Pari saying, "OMG! I'm getting married!"?WOW!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Phillipa & Anurag's Hindu Wedding... Day 2

Here we go again, bridey! I am absolutely thrilled to share Day 2 of Phillipa & Anurag's wedding with you! In February, I shared their Western wedding with you, and today, it's time for you to drool over the stunning photographs, taken by the amazing Hilary Cam, of their Hindu wedding celebration. Seriously, you will be drooling, because it's filled with piles and piles of dynamic colors and energy, and truly incredible details!

Amazing henna. Just gorgeous!Phillipa, you look beautiful.Nice sharanis boys!! You look great!!Wow! Check them out! Woot! Woot!Apparently, they tried to sneak up on Anurag for the first look, but the jingling bells and bracelets gave her away! Anurag still looked shocked and surprised when he saw Phillipa in traditional Indian outfit. Uh... Nice Rolls! Bring on the Baraat!!Yeah, look up! The girls are rockin' Gangnam style! Look down! The boys are giving it right back! An impromptu dance off in the street between the bridesmaids and the groomsmen started when Gangnam Style started playing! Oh YEAH!!Then everybody started dancing! Super fun!!Love. Love. Love.

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 ~ A Fashion-Forward, Super Stylish, Super Glam NYC Wedding

I've had the privilege of working with Ed from Zorz Studios, and as you are about to see, his work is positively sensational. His shots are unique, his perspective eccentric and his demeanor, lovely; something that emanates out of each and every photograph. That coupled with a truly electrifying and cool couple is a recipe for a some spectacular images!

Bridey, I have said it over and over again... Lighting changes everything! And, Dana & John's wedding is no exception. Yes the décor is beautiful, but it is eye-popping with the lighting. Trust me, you won't want to miss anything as you scroll. So, get ready for some fantastic inspiration, some holyshitINEEDthose shoes, and a ton of fun as you take in Dana & John's wedding!

And as you know, bridey, I am particularly obsessed with the lighting! Completely changes everything!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ When a Handsome Englishman Falls for a Jersey Girl

If he's from England and she's from New Jersey, then how did they come to be? Well, Debbie and Adam met while working abroad in Switzerland, and haven't looked back since. I mean... Talk about making a long distance relationship work, right? They had the Atlantic Ocean between them, and their love only grew (sorry for the sappy crap, but it's true!). Fast forward to their wedding day, and apparently these two couldn't take their eyes off of each other! 

Outside of the B+G's obvious adoration for each other, it's absolutely clear that they (and their friends) have a ton of fun together. Seriously, it's been a long time since I've seen a beer funnel, and while I certainly didn't expect to see one tucked within these beautiful wedding pics, I definitely got a chuckle when I saw what was fueling the fun! A beer funnel and a super awesome candy bar will definitely make for happy wedding guests!! 

Damn, Debbie you look amazing! Best.shot.ever.Sniff sniff...Gorgeous arch! So simple and elegant.Give the people what they want! CANDY!! I love how they displayed the candy bar!Not really sure what the hell that photograph is all about, but Debbie seems to think it's hilarious!I see icing on Debbie's nose!Took me a second, but the dude ripped his pants! LOL! Holy shit! Um, see the beer funnel? Yup! Look up! Look down!I love seeing wedding guests having fun at a wedding!Yesssssss!Yeah, Adam and his best man are singing “You've Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'" to Debbie! Hope that's not really true!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ "I Love You. How Many More Times do I Have to Say it?"

I know you're probably like, "What the fuck is with the boombox?" Right? I was! Actually, if I'm honest, I was hoping they weren't using it for the ceremony music. And then, I was thinking about who still has a boombox, and why! Anyway... If you think about the title of the post and then scroll down a bit, you will understand the significance of the boombox. 

I wish I had the opportunity to work with Marielle and David. I truly do. Because they get it. Like, really, really get it. Their wedding was a celebration for them, but about friends and family. No timeline, no fiasco, no bullshit. Just two people who love each other. PERIOD. Some cool shit they did? Well, a longtime friend became ordained and married them, in lieu of gifts they asked that their guests make donations to the charities of their choice, Marielle and David donated the left over food to those in need, all of the flowers from the wedding were donated to Random Act of Flowers, etc. etc. etc. Pretty amazing, right? 

See the blue faces? Those pics were from their engagement session where they fought with super bright paint.Love your hair, Marielle! The style and the color!That place just looks cool, right?David! Totally love how you're looking at Marielle!HOLY SHIT! Right? If you don't get this, shame on you. David is holding the boombox (in question) above his head while the DJ played "In Your Eyes" just like Lloyd Dobler in "Say Anything"! Yup! Cocktails first! And, the B+G joined their guests.Um. Hi. I love pie.

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Green, Australian Wedding in a Trio of Teepees!!

If this pic looks somewhat familiar, you're not hallucinating. In May 2014, I posted a kickass real wedding with fox cake toppers and fox related called, 'The Fantastic Mr. & Mrs. Fox'. That B+G (Kate and John) loved foxes, and it's also their last name. And while this bride and groom, Laura and Ryan, won't be rockin' Mr. and Mrs. Fox, they do rock among the coolest fucking weddings ever! The details are spectacular (check out the invitations below!), and the teepee? OMG! AWESOME! Who gets married in a teepee? Laura and Ryan do!

As avid outdoor people, the ceremony was held in the heart of the Aussie bush while guests were serenaded with the lovely sounds of bellbirds that chimed in as the string trio played. I mean... Can you imagine? WOW! Laura said, "It was the most magical day of celebration surrounded by all the best things – the beauty of nature, our closest family and friends, great food and music and our love for each other." It really doesn't get much better than that, right? Right! Enjoy!

So so so cute and unique!WOW! That bouquet is absolutely mesmerizing!Creepy awesome.There's a black cat in this pic. LOVE!Laura... You are breathtaking! I love your dress and the birdcage veil!I love how Hilary Cam sets the scene.Clever.Such a cutie! And, I love her dress too!Let's get out of here for a bit...

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Modern Day 'Married with Children'...

Sara and James have four children. FOUR! And, they still like each other enough to get married! I mean... I have two kids and there are days that I want to tell my hus to "suck it" and slam the door in his face! As some of you may know, kids definitely bring out the best and the worst in a couple, and looking at Sara and James, it's clear to me that their kids bring out the best in them.

These two got married in the East Ayton Church before heading off to Betton Farm to celebrate with their friends and family. And when you see the pics, you will see that although their reception was quite beautiful, the wedding was nothing short of a kick ass party! Hand cuffs (yup!), booze and mood lighting certainly get the party going that's for sure! Enjoy the inspiration, both aesthetically and emotionally!

I am OB SES SED with Sara's dress! It's the perfect mix of princess and wedding...Um... Those are silk. Right? I would have never guessed!Sara! You're stunning!Such a dapper groom!Cut it out! Would you look at how happy Sara is to see James! This is what it's all about, bridey! Quick! Let's get away to snap some pics!I love how much they laugh together!!Stunning decor! Pretty cake!Again... Look at Sara's face! FUCKING LOVE IT!

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ Childhood Sweethearts Exchange Vows in Jamaica

Tanya and Travis met when they were ten years old in dance class. And now? They are two of the most sought after dancers in the country. True story. Google them. I did (or just click on the links I dropped into their names). OMG! I love having celebrities on BB! But, I also love a good story, and meeting when you're ten years old and then getting married, is pretty awesome! Right? Definitely not the norm...

Bridey, this destination wedding is really something... There is such beauty and personality strewn throughout that I had a hard time narrowing down the pics I wanted to share today. An added bonus? Kickass photos of the groom getting ready! You'll see. If that FAB tux in the pic above doesn't give you a glimpse... So, bridey, enjoy this cool and beautiful wedding. I did! 

The lace detail in this wedding gown is absolutely stunning. WOW!Tanya, you're STUN NING! Simply gorgeous! Lovin' the hot pink toes with the blue shoes. Hi Travis. You're damn sexy.Yup! That's a custom tux that Travis designed (with the help of Trend Custom Tailors). I'll be honest, not many men would rock this tux the way Travis did...Tanya made the boutonnieres. Well, you know, she made the shells into boutonnieres.Wow. That look! To Travis, there is nobody else in the room...Tanya made the bouquets too! How fucking awesome are those?!I don't know what's in it, but I want one!DAMN! There's a reason both Travis and Tanya sought after dancers! 

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ From Microeconomics Class to an Amazing, Intimate, San Francisco Wedding

It all started in freshmen microeconomics class at Ohio University... And five years later? Dongli and Chengyuan are married in fabulous San Francisco! Their relationship took them across the country beginning in Ohio, then New York, and finally landing in California. 

Dongli's parents were visiting from China, and so that they could attend the wedding ceremony, she moved up the date. Because that's not stressful... OMG! Next year there will be a big reception in Napa Valley, although this reception seemed pretty fucking awesome to me! Bridey, just wait until you see the beautiful outdoor ceremony, stunning long supper table and incredible venue! I can only imagine what the larger reception will be like in Napa! Enjoy!!

Hell of a view of San Francisco!Um... Can we talk about how gorgeous this bouquet is? Holy shit!Looks like a fun group of maids and men!Love this pic...Stunning outdoor ceremony space! Awwwwww.....I am completely in awe of this stunning table! I LOVE the ghost chairs, the amazing flowers and lovely charger plates!
