“ADULT ONLY” DIY RUSTIC SURF WEDDING (with succulents + surfboards): Randi & Jared Met While Working at a Surf Shop.. | Michelle Sullivan Photography

“So this is how the story goes…

Let’s start with the morning before the wedding. I was totally prepared. The last thing I needed to do was get a mani and pedi with my girls. I went to pick up my fiance’s sister first. She hops in the car and hands me a baby sippy cup, she has one for herself as well. My mind was already mush from all of the wedding planning so I didn’t question it. I start driving to our nail appointment and take a sip from my sippy cup at a red light.

Whataya know!!! It’s a margarita!”

… is how today’s bride, Randi, starts out her wedding story. So yes, I love this girl. Enjoy her wedding because I did to infinity and beyond.

DIY BACKYARD WEDDING + Ryan Gosling Wedding Music Video????!!!!!!1111 | Plus: Bambino, & What You *Must* Do the Morning of Your Wedding…

Oh hey look it’s Monday afternoon.  yayYUH.  Who’s excited, EVERYBODY?  No? … wait, is anybody excited?  Oh c’mon you guys, Monday isn’t that bad.

… aright I’m lying right to your face.  Mondays are no Saturdays, that’s for sure.  There’s obviously no fooling you.  But hopefully things’ll get better once you’ve gotten a load of this post.  I have a very good feeling about it, actually.

Now, here’s the thing.   {Continue reading…}

THE BIRD & THE BEAR | This Is How You Rock a Field Shoot, SON. | By Feather & Twine Photography

(little intro addendum before I get into it…) it happened.  Again.  I can hardly believe it.  In just over a year of living here, we’ve now had four couples break up on the sidewalk under our window sill.  I don’t know why this is happening, but I’m going to assume it has less to do with some kind of bad luck we may be spraying onto pedestrians from our window, and more to do, possibly, with the safety our block offers people who might feel a need to go insane and run around and yell and scream and cry and collapse and run around and yell again.  We have a pretty safe block, car-wise.  But anyway, it breaks my heart when couples come to verbal fisticuffs, it really does.  But one request of the next couple who decides to have it out on our avenue… can you please NOT do it between 12 and 3am?  The yelling, you guys.  I mean.  It’s like– do you HAVE to yell at one another, and for a full two hours?  Especially when it’s this?–

“NO don’t tell me I’m a f**king child and that I should go home!!  I’ll be 18 in TWO DAYS!!!!  Don’t tell me I’m a f**king CHILD!!!!”

That quote from the girlfriend outside would be hilarious if it wasn’t so darn stupid and sad.  Also, I yell for one minute and I completely lose my voice; I don’t get how you keep going, but I do know enough to know that yelling is the last thing that’s going to help your relationship.  Sigh.  Whatever, I’m just super tired from not sleeping last night as a result.  Plus, I’m one of those people who feels other people’s energies, so I’m flatlining a little today.  It is what it is I guess.  Aright sorries, back to your regularly scheduled blogramming….

Hey guyyyyys :)  Wussup, how’s it hangin.  Having a good day?  I hope so, I truly do.

Ok now that I’ve buttered you up… I’ve been thinking recently that I {Continue reading…}

Happy February 14th, lovelies!  Ooooohhhh I’m so excited about today, and not just because Honey and I have plans to engage in dinner, dessert and coitus, in that order.  That’s part of it, the excitement– but it’s also because I have totally-not-literally TONS of Love Day inspiration that I know your retinas will DIE OVER.

#2: PINK PARTY INSPIRATION | If you’re lucky, your sister is a wedding stylist! | By JCG Events + Serendipity Studios

Hello, lovers.  Because this is a starlet-inspired bridal shower and the carpet is less red and more hot pink, I seriously considered naming this feature “Walking the *Pink* Carpet: Bridal Shower Inspiration for the Stars In All of Us.”  I am NOT KIDDING you.  ’Course, almost as quickly as the idea came to me, I realized it was waaaaay way way way waaaaaaay too suggestive a title.  I mean, even for someone like *me*.  So, there you go.  That’s how that went.  Right… right, ok, moving right along.

Ok, crazy awesome wedding approaching at warp speed, however before we get into it, I must – MUST – relay a little anecdote from Thursday, if you don’t mind…

So, yesterday, while he was perusing the feedback on Rhi’s amazeballs guest post (y’all are so freakin’ supportive of each other!  it’s bonkers!), Honey happened to notice a link nestled inside one of our newer commentor’s (thanks for the awesome comment, Katy!) comments.  He was intrigued.  {Continue reading…}

DIY HOLLYWOOD WEDDING | Kassee + Aaron | The prettiest li’l wedding I ever did see. + Bambino blogs now.


It’s Friday afternoonish (at least in nyc), and the facts are in: Pippa *may not be* a strippa, but she does have a badonkadonk (sp?) envied the world over.  ESPECIALLY in the UK.  Oh, how do I know this?  Plastic surgeons in the UK have reported a 60% upswing in the number of clients requesting Pippa’s tushie.  Actually, let’s call it by its proper name: The Pip Package Perfect Posterior.  Yes, that’s a real thing and this is happening.  And yes, it’s $12,000.  So… go, society!  It’s good to see we’ve got our priorities in order. {Continue reading…}

REAL WEDDING | Joe + Jennifer at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center | In Lady Gaga’s words… JUST DANCE.

Ok.  I think I should warn you about two things:

1) This wedding is AMAZEBALLS.

2) I’m a ball of mush at this point.  Seriously, if you could see me right now, you’d probably be like, “Whoa, she looks like she’s been crying for three days.“  {Continue reading…}

REAL WEDDING | Sara + Aaron | A poet, a librarian, and their vintage southern wedding day. “You can have a beautiful, personal wedding without going over budget!”

Happy Friday, lovelies!  They say it’s about 60 degrees outside and OMGIAMSOEXCITED.  It’s my BIRTHDAY this weekend, and it’s the first time we’ve had weather like this in approximately forever.  At least it feels like it’s been forever.  It’s been soooo cooold here, and we’ve been aching for a respite.  So, yay!  Go, non-polar temperatures!

Today’s wedding just makes me smile ear to ear.  And not the kind of smile I get when my honey streaks across the living room before taking a shower.  Not that smile.  {Continue reading…}

FASHION IMPOSSIBLE | FOUND IT! | A David’s Bridal gown I’d wear + bridesmaid pairings in grey/neutral tones

So, our little Pixel & Hank giveaway got off with a bang yesterday, and we seriously can’t wait to see who wins next week!  I love giveaways that give you your pick of whatever you want in a store.  Seriously, aren’t they just the best?  We all have specific taste, and what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another.  So, you get to pick.  Yeehaw!  Awesomesauce.

Moving right along – I’m pretty freakin’ excited about today, and I think you might have a clue as to why.  Can you guess?  I probably gave it away in the title, actually yeah I definitely gave it away in the title, so forget it.  No points for guessing, it’s obvs.  It’s time for yet another installment of one of our favorite series on TKB… {Continue reading…}
