Floridian Engagement Shoot

It’s not everyday you come across a gorgeous engagement shoot complete with my personal favorite accessory {gold sequins} so obviously when I stumbled across this one by Hunter Ryan Photo I fell head over heels. But it’s not just the sequins, it’s the couple that shines here and looking at this engagement shoot makes me feel right there and excited for the big day so I’m hoping the couple and those sequins are having the same effect for you!

Bridal Shower Etiquette: The Mason Jar Centerpiece

Back to the bridal shower today! And in the spirit of summer we wanted to put together enough DIY mason jar ideas for every MOH or bridesmaid to use for their sisters, cousins, or best friends indoor, outdoor, elegant, rustic, fresh or funky shower.

The mason jar has become a staple for the cool wedding customized easily with some DIY touches. While they are perfect for outdoor and casual weddings, they are also perfect for spring and summer bridal showers making fun, inexpensive and unique centerpieces. Honestly, I love all of the options below {obviously – I picked them} but a few things that I gush over most:

1. tinted blue or green {or any color} mason jars
2. mason jars with bow ties {ie a twine bow at their neck}
3. the unconventional mason jar {think old milk jug instead of mason jar to spice things up}

Happy bridal shower planning lovelies!

City Slicker – Washington DC Engagement Shoot

City engagement shoots always have that giddy, “love them so much” effect on me so it’s not a surprise that I lit up with excitement over this DC shoot. Karen Seifert Photography captures the city and the couple (KC & Adam) magically; you can see just how happy they are wandering around the capital city and National Portrait Gallery! And the pictures made for a perfect guestbook for the couples destination wedding in Puerto Rico! Speaking of… would love to go there {proverbially of course} after this stop in DC! We could all use a little sun right now, especially in NYC! Happy Tuesday!

Romantic Lakeside Engagement Session

I love finding an engagement shoot when you can literally feel the love {and creativity} shine through, and today, Ace Photography gave us just that. This shoot, at a quiet lake and then onto downtown Nashville makes you want to jump into the photos of this wonderfully happy couple! I love the thought that was put into making this engagement session not just a photo shoot, but a true day out for the couple filled with some fabulous props and lots of fun!
