Total Palm Beach glam squad. First, let me just say that I’ve been completely obsessed with the famous banana leaf print for, I do not exaggerate, my entire teenage and adult life. I have big plans to splurge and use it in our condo, but I have to save a bunch of pennies and come up with some free time first. Anyway, because this is a fantasy world, I’ve made some giant drapes out of it, which flank imaginary french doors, not shown (because they are imaginary).

I think the yellow chair works so well in here, because it’s quirkiness plays off all of the other quirky things, but it still manages to be grown-up enough for the serious sofa. This room makes me think of lounging around in a bikini in really cold air conditioning.I don’t understand that either.

How to have an Awesome Wedding Part 2

*This series is about what we wish someone would have told us when we were planning our wedding. Its also because we like to photograph awesome weddings. Feel free to disregard any of our sarcastic comments. But as you know this is our blog, so we get to be as sarcastic as we want!

#1: Let your groom buy his own suit for his wedding!!!

Tuxes are gross. They look nice, with that vest and tie and all that. But lets think about the last person who wore that tux. Especially if its prom season. It probably ended up on the floor of some cheap hotel room with Zima bottles littering the floor. See? Gross.

As the bride you get to spend all this time and money searching for the perfect dress for your wedding. It devalues the experience if your $2000 dress is standing next to a $75 tux that a pimply high school kid wore last weekend. Buy a suit, or wear your dad’s suit, or your grandad’s suit. It has character and history, two things that help make an awesome wedding. So lets go with that.

How to have an Awesome Wedding Part 1

First off, lots of people can have awesome weddings for lots of different reasons. Since this is our blog, we get to tell you what we think is awesome. When we got married, no one gave us permission to not follow the rules of wedding planning. Don’t get me wrong, we had a killer wedding, outdoors in rural Nebraska. It was amazing. But, we also spent a lot of time and money on things that really didn’t matter. But we thought “this is what you do when you plan a wedding.” So this series is about what we wish someone would have told us when we were planning our wedding. Its also because we like to photograph awesome weddings.

What is an Awesome Wedding?

An awesome wedding is about you, your connection, your commitment, your complete focus on each other and what you’re creating together. An awesome wedding is intentional, it has meaning, and it has a purpose for everything.

What is not an Awesome Wedding?

Well, we can’t say for sure. But this is our snarky view of things.

Feel free to accept or disregard anything we say. Maybe we’ll give you some great ideas, maybe you’ll want to drop-kick our face. Either way, thank you for being here, for reading our thoughts and seeing our images, for caring enough to come back to this blog regularly. We’re thankful.
