Erin & Mark’s Glam-tastic Atlantic City Wedding

Welcome to Tradesy Weddings Wedding Porn Wednesday! I’m super excited to introduce this new feature, which will bring you  tantalizing, luscious, drool-worthy wedding images taken by some of the most talented wedding photogs in the world, right here every Wednesday. <!–more–>

“What’s wedding porn,” you ask? Wedding porn is photography that captures, in explicit, lingering detail, all of the spectacular visual beauty of a wedding. It’s not baum-chikka-wow-wow porn, though it’s been known to get certain brides-to-be all hot and bothered. Good wedding porn inspires, stimulates desire, quickens the heartbeat, and leaves you wanting more. Kind of like regular porn, but you can look at it at work, and even more like food porn, but not as fattening. (What?? You’ve never seen food porn? Oh my. Go to Food Porn Daily. I’ll wait here.)

Want to submit your photos for publication on Wedding Porn Wednesdays? Here’s how.

And now, without further ado, our first featured wedding, photographed by the super-talented Pat Furey, and first posted on The Wedding Chicks (with thanks to the gracious gals at Wedding Chicks for their republishing blessings).

Erin and Mark’s Glamtastic Atlantic City Wedding Adventure

They got married at the Showboat Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. It’s all velvet walls and Persian rugs and faux-17th century sculptures. Watch Erin and Mark make it modern and cool.

Erin made her bouquet, the guys boutonnieres, and the centerpieces from — get this — the pages of Homer’s The Odyssey. Just take a moment to soak that in. It kind of makes me want to marry her.

This photo, the one right here below, is one of the most beautiful wedding pics I’ve ever seen. It is perfection. Be sure to check out photographer Pat Furey’s blog to see more of his work, which is more art than wedding photography. Thanks for sharing, Pat!

Hilary and Dave’s Laid-Back Seaside Celebration

Flip-flops, starfish, and a happily expecting bride in an intimate and casual beachfront wedding.

Photographer Gabrielle Fox first met Hilary and Dave when they hired her to do a maternity shoot while Hilary was pregnant with their first child. Two years later, with another little one on the way, the couple reunited with their fave photographer when she shot their beautiful wedding at a private estate on the California coast. <!–more–>  The event was a perfect combination of relaxed fun and gorgeous details, with abundant floral and cacti arrangements by Stem Design Studio. With all the ladies in beachy, flowing dresses, and the men in khakis and linens, the mood was stylish, sunny, intimate and fun.

No uncomfortable heels or formal shoes for this wedding party! Don’t you just love Dave’s stylin’ white loafers, and the beach-friendly flip-flops on the ladies?

The bridesmaids dresses fade from sky blue to seafoam green, reflecting the colors of the seascape.

Who needs an aisle runner when you’ve got baby cacti lining a sandy path to the altar?
