Romantic Sunset Engagement Pictures in Florida

Today, we can’t stop eyeing these spectacular Floridian engagement pictures. Kelsi and Michael are young lovebirds who took full advantage of the iconic golden hour. Vibrant sunsets, moss covered oak tress, and cowboy boots- what could be sweeter?

The open aired, dreamy landscape looks like it was plucked right out of Charleston. These engagement photos are effortlessly romantic; and with just the right amount of sunlight, their photographer was able to capture some picture-perfect moments. If you love this type of natural light, consider taking engagement photos during the summertime. It stays lighter a bit longer, allowing the two of you to indulge in the season.

Tip: To make your engagement session go further, try changing up your outfits! We love how their first outfit choice is a bit more casual. Both Kelsi and Michael are wearing jeans for their more “posed photography” that took place earlier on in the afternoon. As the evening went on, Kelsi changed into a stunning white, lace dress. Michael changed into a more formal button down shirt. Make sure to wear something that remains true to the two of you!

A Romantic Southern Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are swooning over this seriously stunning styled shoot! There are so many things we love about this piece- its romantic charm, the golden summer hues, and the vintage Rolls Royce automobile. If you are thinking about hosting a summer outdoor wedding, take notes on this epic traditional wedding inspiration.

There is something so nostalgic about Charleston; we are forever smitten with the Spanish moss that dangles along the old trees, and the ageless brick homes that live within its city limits. It’s a quaint little city that almost seems to take you back in time. Though any wedding theme looks stunning in South Carolina, we can’t help but fall head over heels for a soft color palette here, where the scenery does most of the talking. This formal wedding used our premium foil pressed wedding invitations to tie in their chic theme.

Make sure to also check out the fun creative video down at the bottom! #swoon

Citrus and Pink Wedding Theme Ideas

Orange and pink never looked so sweet, especially with a squeeze of citrus. It’s so easy adding color to a citrus and pink wedding theme: top mimosas with fruit and decorate your cake with bright blooms. Let’s take a look at how to liven up your wedding day with these decorating tips.

  1. Serve a special cocktail right before your reception. You’ll have guests puckering up for this lemon mimosa with blood orange. It’s a perfect refreshing and bright cocktail that your party will love enjoying on a summer day.
  2. When in doubt, flowers can quickly add more style to your big day. We love bold pink, peach and orange in combination with soft neutrals and greens. Add them to your bouquets, tables, and for a real special look, cascade them down your wedding cake.citrus-and-pink-wedding-theme-ideasFeatured Wedding Invitation: Blooming Adoration. See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.
  3. Don’t limit yourself to flowers, bring your bold blooms to your wedding invitations and paper decor for the ceremony and reception. You can use the same invitation design for your table numbers, place cards, menus and more for beautiful tablescapes that are so simple to create.

Make every detail count when you plan your wedding. The simplest touch of color to your cocktails, cake and invitations will bring your wedding look to a whole new level. Find your own special way to make your wedding pop with citrus and pink.

Vintage Desert Engagement Photos in Joshua Tree

We are incredibly thrilled to share with you these chic desert engagement photos. Burnt orange hues, cacti and an iconic VW bus are a few aspects that make this stylish session the beauty that it is.

It’s all about open spaces and a one-of-a-kind love with this couple, what a most perfect combo. The sun setting brings on a moody tone and offers the perfect lighting complementing each and every detail. Photographer’s Randy + Ashley share that this session was, “basically just the best time ever.” If you’re looking for some vintage desert chic engagement inspo then get ready to take notes because Natalie and Garrett’s session have those words written all over it.

From the Photographer…

When Natalie + Garrett asked us what we thought about their idea to rent a vintage VW bus for their engagement session our in Joshua Tree, we may or may not have jumped up and down like kid’s in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory with an American Express black card. But nothing – nothing – could have really prepared us for just how perfect the VW bus would be for their shoot until they showed up with it, in all its orange, vintage glory.

It really fit in with who they are – always up for adventure and camping; in fact, Garrett proposed to Natalie on an RV trip to Zion National Forest around Christmastime, so shooting their engagement session in another national park just totally fit them to a “T.”We spent the afternoon hiking around on the busiest weekend ever – not only was it the first week of most people’s spring break, but it also happened to be Easter weekend, so Joshua Tree was crowded as heck. But! Eventually we found the perfect spot, and we watched the sunset over the jumbo rocks, talking about their upcoming destination wedding in Palm Springs next winter (which we are super stoked about.)

Beautiful Engagement Pictures in Downtown Winter Park

Today, we are so smitten to be sharing these beautiful engagement pictures set in downtown Winter Park. This engagement session elevates a stroll through the park to new heights. Heights full of love and one amazing couple. There is something fresh and flirtatious about an outdoor engagement that we are perfectly impressed by.

Olivia and Josh flew out from North Carolina for their destination wedding in Longwood on beautiful Lake Brantley. A few days before their big day, they met in downtown Winter Park for a beautiful engagement session captured by the ever talented Corner House Photography. Who mentions that, “From the Rose Garden to the park, every adorable shot was a perfect reflection of my playful, silly, and incredibly amazing couple,” and we would absolutely have to agree.

If you just said yes, then these engagement pictures are just the inspiration you’ve been searching for. Remember that you’ll likely be using these photos to send out save the dates for your big day, to show off that ring and most importantly, to capture the love between you and your new fiancé. Pick a location that is meaningful to the two of you and get ready to show off a whole lot of love.
