Barbie’s Big Day

Many of us can remember fantasizing about Barbie’s wedding day as little girls, from dressing her in over-the-top sequined ensembles to marching her down a makeshift aisle lined with plastic chairs.

Now that we’re brides and newlyweds ourselves, how could we not appreciate photographer Béatrice de Guigné’s stylish and creative Barbie & Ken “real wedding” photo shoot, which is funny and sweet all at once?




If you haven’t yet checked out the full feature over at Rock n’ Roll Bride, you simply must, if for no other reason than to start your week off with a big smile!

P.S. Thank you all for your well wishes ahead of Hurricane Irene. We made it through just fine, hunkering down for the weekend with good books, a couple bottles of wine and our trusty iPhones as we waited out the tropical-storm force winds and rain. Other than a few downed trees and a temporary power outage, it looks as though our immediate area thankfully made it through without any severe damage. My heart goes out to all of those facing serve flooding and destruction as a result of the storm.

  3. I don't know why, but this creeps me out a little bit. Do I have a secret fear of dolls? Lol
