This is a wonderful Fall Bridal session with Kate and Manoraj. The photographer, LeeYen Lobendahn,
made this session come to life and each picture depicts how much they love each other.
They decided to exchange letters to spend a few minutes reminding themselves of how it all started before going back to the whirlwind of wedding planning. This special moment is beautifully captured in these photographs.
Sarah wore a gorgeous emerald dress from Rent the Runway in the first part of her engagement pictures by Jessica White Photography and we were completely smitten. The emerald dress brought romance and drama to their engagements and then they went casual for a fun mountain picnic! We adore these!
TGIF! We love Friday’s and especially this one, the perfect Autumn break! Today on fashion Friday we are sharing with you some of our favorite gowns with high necklines ….. its spot on trend to divert from a plunging neckline in 2015 and there are so many beautifully regal gowns to choose from! Here are a few of our favorites!
VOGUE as always been a mainstay go to on fashion, bridal is no exception. These two gowns come from an ad campaign they did and we found them on Pinterest! The ornate high neckline shoulder cape set over a delicate gown is one of our current favorite accessory styles! And then there is lace lace lace, a nude lace high neckline and sleeve creates about as much glamour as one bride could ever find!
If vintage is your thing, this gorgeous gown from Luisa Beccaria will do the trick!
Then there is this Rosa Clara, sort of speaks Audrey Hepburn style, very classic!
And last but not least this gorgeous Julie Vino with a bit of a sass that we could not resist. The metallic belt brings a unique detail that we do not see much in bridal fashion, but cannot help but be drawn too!
Hope you soon to be gown shopping ladies are inspired! We know we are!
Today’s engagement session is a sweet one! We love when couples bring their personal lives into their photos. Sarah wanted to take her engagements on her Grandfather’s property and we think they turned out beautiful. Gorgeous photography by Camilia Lund Photography.
Here is a little snippet from the bride:
“Every summer growing up, I would fly from my home state in Florida to my grandparents house for a month. It was this trip that I looked forward to every year, even more than Christmas. My grandfather always kept the yard a child’s paradise, from the bridges over the river, to the trails on the hills, and my imagination combined with my cousin Averi’s, would take flight. I believe my feet have been close to everywhere on that land…and each summer, the yard and I would join again …another year older…some life phases ending while new one’s were beginning. As I now begin one of the most precious phases of my life, getting married, I once again returned to grandpa’s land…and this time, how sweet was my joy, that as my feet, bare as ever, walked amongst the footsteps of my past I was joined hand in hand with another pair of feet….imaginations taking flight as we take these steps forward into our beautiful future. I hope that future brings many visits to this place that I love, and that I can one day bring along the pink soft soles of little feet beginning their own story.”

Fall in Utah is definitely one of the most beautiful times of year. We have loved seeing all of the fall shoots coming into our inbox! We just had to share these darling fall engagements photographed by Ravenberg Photography! Chris and Sierra wanted a little more of an urban feel without going into the city. We love the cute apartments they took their photos next to! Of course they topped their engagement session off with some gorgeous fall color!
Today we digging into our archives for a second look at one of our favorite flower Friday posts from 2011. It was all about the vessel, you know …. where the goods, oh I mean flowers, are housed!
We know that DIY feel is very appealing to lots of you ladies out there, a crafty project is fun and rewarding, thrifty or not! So today we thought we would showcase some options in way of re-purposed or up-cycled items to create darling and fun vessels for your floral needs. After all when it comes to flowers they are all in the vessel!
There is still some sturdy useful packaging around on several products like soup and formula cans, and a plethora of liquid products in bottles that have crafty potential. we have come across a good amount of well done “up-cycling” thanks to sites like pinterest. We found this more than lovely array of small floral arrangements in re-purposed soup cans! We know that there are some of us out there that like paper about as much as some women like shoes! But what to do with that pretty paper?? Well here is yet another useful and creative option.
Some re-purposed vessels require no manipulation other then the housing of some water and blooms, like these test tubes from a science lab. A beautiful example of utilizing something personalized for your blooms. There are certainly many items that could house a bloom or two that have seemingly nothing to do with flowers but something to do with you personally as a couple! Apple votives for a teacher, boot vases for avid hikers are both examples of this concept. The idea is to think creatively and outside of the box.
Painted bottles are all the rage when it comes to manipulating and utilizing what is around the house. Be it gold to fancy something up, white to mimic milk glass, or a bright fun color to bring in a challenging tone in your color scheme. Either way this simplistic method can create lovely vessels that in turn create a lovely ensemble.
Manipulating your own vessels is a creative way to be involved and hands on when it comes to your wedding design and it allows you to really customize your look. It obviously aesthetically appeals to a more DIY bride but can be upgraded when clever thought is conducted. Many florists are happy to work with a vessel provided by a client and like to work with elements that are not in their usual inventory, they are also a great resource for a creative mind to help you come up with some clever vessel ideas.
