oh. my. balls.
Ok, so I decided to put one up today, instead of continuing to obsess over your killer Bloggista emails. Yeah, it’s 4:30 EST. Whatevs I felt like blogging. So what, who cares? Aright LET’S GET STARTED…
My beloved boys and girls, as I squint through the opaque mist of Bambo’s fart cloud today (the peanut butter goes in, the peanut butter goes OUT), I don’t even seem to care all that much anymore about the skyrocketing number of succulents I’ve killed just this week, because yesterday’s announcement? AMAZEBALLS RESPONSE. I’ve seriously been sitting here since yesterday afternoon when we posted the news, snorting a veritable ‘blow’ of nonstop Knotty Bloggista applications. We are like TOTES in love with each and every one of you so far. So yeah, thanks for making it impossible to easily choose a select few bloggistas. No but seriously, reading your emails = THE FUNNEST, and I kind of want them never to stop coming. Clearly the demand is there, that’s f***ing clear as day, so, maybe what we need to do is make this bloggista thing indefinite/ongoing… which of course makes perfect sense since new brides “pop up” every day. ;) It’s a thought. Ok, tabling that for a moment since we’ve got other fish to bake-at-350-degrees-so-as-to-maintain-our-slim-figures…
So listen, I just came back from reading the most hi-larious thing I’ve ever read in my life, and aside from laughing to the point of asphyxiation and intense, debilitating stomach spasms, I was left with one nagging thought: “Who are these people who don’t proofread their texts in advance of sending them?” Are you one of these people? Do you know one of these people, who does this? Even before I had a phone that autocorrected, I skimmed my texts for accuracy. Granted I write for a living so it’s my nature, but still. I feel like, if I was texting my mother and a word was replaced with p***y, I would be PAINFULLY AWARE. the send button can’t be more than one inch away from the screen where you’ve written your text content. Your eye is going to catch c**k. It’s going to. It just is. Unless you text from moving planes immediately before jumping out of them, or you challenge yourself to write texts as quickly as effing possible so you can break personal records, or something. No one does that, so WTF. Whatever I’m glad there are people who create this stuff and submit it because that Top 15 List made my sides‘ sides split.
Arighty, what was I getting to today? OHRIGHTTHISAMAZEBALLSWEDDINGOCCURENCE.
You guys, I love Courtney Dellafiora, for so many reasons. Some might say myriad reasons. Because some like to use that word. Here’s the thing; Courtney is an incredible photographer, there is no disputing that. But here’s why I, personally, loooove her – she tweets things like “I love laughing. Laughing is the best.” and “Just looked at the galleries on my website for the 1st time in a while, and actually got emotional. Siiigh, love my clients.” She’s not just talented, she’s kind. She’s real. Isn’t it grand? Ok, without further adieu, ZEE WEDDING – oh no no no wait wait, wait. A peek at Andrea and Blake’s gorgeous engagements first, which were taken at Nottoway’s famous “White Room” a location that, according to Courtney, is “DROP DEAD BEAUTIFUL.” We are in agreement there, Courtney.
Ok, NOWWWWSSSS THE WEDDING…
The lovely bride is expecting (CONGRATS, LOVELY LADY! I have a feeling that’s gonna be one of the most gorgeous babies on the face of this Earth…) so Courtney gave us her perspective of the day:
Andrea and Blake’s wedding was a true Cinderella story – like a fairytale. Every element was very elegant and glamorous, while still having the feel of warm Southern hospitality. On a perfect October day at Nottoway Plantation the two shared their loving vows in front of an intimate crowd. Afterwards heading to the infamous “white room” to enjoy cocktails while being serenaded by their musical trio of string instruments. Cocktail hour was then followed by a gorgeous reception in the grand ballroom. With the illumination of beautiful chandeliers and lit candles, the couple and guests enjoyed delicious food and joyous dancing all night. Overall Andrea and Blake’s magical evening at the breathtaking Nottoway Plantation in Southern Louisiana was a wedding any bride would dream of.
Le sigh, you guys.
And now, in honor of people who are *ALL. ABOUT.* those Harry Potter movies… here’s Bambo as “The Chosen One.” I know, his lightening bolt is like so totally fancy.
Here were some “misses.” He looks *corrupt* in this one…
“I’ma cut you, Jimmy. I’ma CUT YOU!“
How anime emo is he looking here?!!!!!
This one already has an appointment with my NIGHTMARES.
So, what think you? The bouquets with an oh-so-chic (like many of us discussed earlier today on twitter) touch of feathery goodness – the good kind – and that ring pillow, those SHOES… listen, I could just go on forever talking about those detail shots, but I’ll be stopping here. Do you love detail shots as much as I do? I could stare at them allllllllll daaaaaaay. Oh wait I DO. :)
