Holy Train!

I think a little train on a dress can be lovely, especially as the bride is walking down the aisle and standing at the top saying her vows.  But, how about a 2 mile long train??

On Tuesday, Andree Salon (a Romanian design house) unveiled their couture wedding dress with a 1.85 mile-long train.  This French lace train took ten seamstresses one hundred days to create.

To show off the gown, they dangled the train from a hot air balloon.

This train broke the Guinness World Record!

A Little Something ~ #52

Apparently I'm all about the mismatch lately (check out last Monday's post).

Today's {A Little Something} is a Marie Antoinette style cake.  Each layer is a different color or pattern but it still all goes together perfectly. 

Love it!

A Little Something ~ #51

How do you guys feel about mismatched chairs at your wedding reception?  I am thinking when done right, it's an absolute yes. 

I love how they found tons of vintage chairs that go together yet are completely different.  It's the perfect kind of mismatch!

It's important to love your wedding look from head to toe.  And if you're still looking for the 'to toe' part of your look, today's {A Little Something} are perfect!

I am obsessed with the pattern on the front.  I don't have a wedding to plan for, but I may just have to get them to wear around this Spring!

A 1950's Style Elopement

Elopements are usually associate with a couple getting married without their family's consent.  But, it doesn't always have to be such a scandalous reason...

Perhaps the couple wants a private, no frills ceremony with just the two of them or maybe they don't have the extra cash to splurge on a wedding.  No matter the reason, it does not mean the couple can't dress up and have a little fun (think Carrie & Big in the Sex & the City movie).  You don't have to have the big wedding and fancy reception to dress up.  It's your day, have fun and do what makes you happy!

And that's just what Julie & Geoff did with their Asheville elopement.  They decide to elope (with two good friends in tow) dressed to the nines in 50's style garb.  It was a super sweet and elegant affair!


Congratulations to Julie & Geoff!

A Little Something ~ #47

With all this cold, rainy weather I needed a little pick me up.  And this cake did the trick.  I just love all of the bright colors and the fun, playful chevron pattern.

It's perfect for a Spring / Summer wedding!

It's the Weekend (part 2), Why Not Pose in Lingerie on the Beach?

So here is the second post for the day featuring some boudoir style photos from Alexandra Werhan.  This shoot took place on the beach in Pensacola, FL and is seriously sexy.  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, this kind of shoot is a great idea for your hubby (or boyfriend, fiance, etc...)

It's the Weekend, So Why Not Trash Your Dress?

Thank goodness it's the weekend!  I don't know about you guys but whenever Friday rolls around, I wake up with a little more energy and in a great mood just knowing the weekend is almost here.  And I also don't want to do anything to serious on a Friday.  So, in keeping with that theme and to help us kick off this weekend I have two awesome shoots (and two posts - it's just that kind of day) to share with you.  Both shoots are full of sexy pictures taken in the ocean (hey, a girl can dream of ocean swimming weather, right?) 

So get ready to have some fun!

The first is a 'trash the dress' shoot.  This couple decided to have a little fun after the stress of planning their wedding and jumped into the ocean for some amazing pictures.

About the shoot: There is nothing more liberating than throwing yourself into the ocean after all the stresses of planning your own wedding. James and Janelle traveled from San Fransisco down to San Luis Obispo County to have a small, rustic and candle-lit wedding in the town of Pismo Beach. After Janelle planned every detail of her own wedding, she was ready to throw her shoes up and have some fun! The couple enjoyed their honeymoon close by and the Monday after their event, they decided to do a "trash the dress" photo shoot with their photographer Ballad Hall of Ballad's Photography. It was a freezing cold morning, but there was nothing but heat coming from these two. The newlyweds were more than willing to get soaked to get the pictures they had been hoping for. The couple and myself, the photographer, felt like it was an experience we will never forget!

How gorgeous are her eyes?!

Such a fun, gorgeous shoot!  And hey why not trash your dress?  Are you really ever going to wear it again?  This way you get some fun, sexy pictures and great memories to keep forever.  Stay tuned for the next shoot...
