Wedding: Barbie and Ken

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

For today's post, I thought it'd be fun for us to take a peek into Barbie and Ken's wedding album.
Of course, this is not exactly a real wedding, but judging from these photos, it might as well be! ;)

Some Barbie and Ken fun facts:
- Barbara Millicent Roberts and Ken Carson started dating in 1961.
- They broke up in 2004.
- Barbie started a brief relationship with an Aussie surfer named Blaine.
- Barbie got tired of waiting for Ken, so she asked him to marry her.
- Barbie and Ken got back together and finally tied the knot.
- If I'm doing the math right, Barbie and Ken would have been dating for 50 years and they should both be around 67 years old (assuming they started dating at 17)!

They don't look anything like their age, but moving on...

Beatrice de Guigne, a French photographer, decided to shoot Barbie and Ken's wedding the same way she would shoot a real wedding -- and she did a great job!

Let's take a look at Barbie and Ken's wedding photos:

Barbie bought her dress from The Fairy Godmother Shop.

Ken bought his suit from The Prince Charming Emporium.

Barbie's wedding shoes are from the Cinderella Store.

I don't know... I am not liking what the Groomsmen are wearing. I am not too sure about Ken's suit either!

I love Barbie's dress and hat, though!

Are you ready to see some classic wedding photos?!
These are the kind of photos I always see featured in wedding websites/posts. ;)

Barbie and Ken tied the knot at Faraway Castle in Plasticity.

Their wedding was very intimate -- only 4 people were invited! ;)

And of course, a wedding album isn't complete without first dance photos:

Aren't these amazing?!
What did you think of the photos? Which of these did you like the most?
