Cute Midwest Engagement Photo Ideas Along A River

Today, we are so excited to be sharing these sweet engagement photo ideas with you all! We love the relaxed environment, fun colors, and tender moments shared between this couple.

Nature provides a stunning backdrop for occasions such as this one. Before you decide to travel far distances for your engagement session, consider stepping foot into your own backyard. If there is something the two of you love, try using it as a prop. From signature coffee to horseback riding, try to commemorate a hobby that fits both of your personalities. This couple used colorful paddles from a canoe, as a focal point within their shoot. These props even match their custom, orange save the dates!

During your engagement photography, try to visit different nearby locations; this will allow for more unique photo opportunities and variety within your session. From the scenic river to the romantic bonfire, we are swooning over all of these pictures.

An Elegant New York Country Club Wedding

Today, we are so excited to share this fun country club wedding! Hosted on a quaint golf course, this bride and groom had a neutral color palette for their big day.

Filled with delicate creamy roses, green succulents, and an array of white Baby’s Breath, the wedding theme is ultra romantic and perfect for any season of the year. We are loving how their silver foil pressed wedding invitations match their custom cake topper. Rachel and Bobby were all smiles on their wedding day.

Traditional Purple Wedding with a Modern Twist

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this charming historic wedding in Georgia! Brian and Natalie rented out The Venetian Room near downtown Atlanta, and had this early 1900s venue decked out in beautiful violet hues. If you enjoy the finer things in life, you swoon over this purple wedding theme.

Their special day was both classic and modern. From the elegant marble to the chandeliers, the entire space leaves guests breathless. We are swooning over the pink and purple flower bouquets and the array of deep purple, and soft lavender, bridesmaids dresses. The sophisticated white Calla Lily centerpieces on the reception tables made quite a statement, as did the tiny candles scattered about the crystal vases. What was the real icing on the cake for us? We got a huge kick out of Natalie and Brian’s swirled chocolate and vanilla cake. Who doesn’t love getting the best of both worlds on their special day?

Muted Hues for Fall Wedding Theme

Get ready for a softer look that’ll make a fall wedding unlike any other. We love jewel tones, but today we’re featuring the “undertones”. Muted, colorful hues give you everything you love about fall, but with a more organic feel. Mauve bridesmaid dresses, moss colored foliage and muted turquoise accents are just as beautiful as they are natural.

Take a look at these wedding day details—you’ll fall for this wedding theme right away!

Flowers are always a perfect way to show off your wedding colors. Arrange soft peonies with purple and white flowers, and add lots of greens for fuller bouquets.

Bridesmaid dresses are another way to add more style. We love mauve for these dresses, making them look very natural. What a beautiful look for the bridal party and your wedding photos!

With all the natural colors, there’s definitely room for dramatic elegance. Pick out a bridal necklace that makes a big statement. There’s no reason to stick just to creams and whites—go bold with a colored belt and necklace!

muted-hues-for-fall-wedding-themeFeatured Wedding Invitation: Stunning Arrangement. See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.

No matter the style or color theme for your wedding, there’s an invitation to fit your big day. This wedding invitation beautifully hints at muted fall colors and a rustic style. Want a different color theme? Invitation designs have so many colors and fonts to choose from.

When you create a wedding day that fits the two of you and incorporates your style throughout the special day, you make it all your own. Add colorful details with flowers and dress your wedding party in muted hues, but don’t be shy—add colorful belts and necklaces that are unexpected! This is your day to shine.

Timeless Traditional Wedding Inspiration in Charleston

Today, we are swooning over this breathtaking styled shoot. Hosted in the ever-romantic Charleston, this wedding does not disappoint. This historic venue has been around since the 1900s, and has everything a girl could want on her big day- from the striking wood floors to the heavenly windows that let in an abundance of natural sunlight. If you want a traditional wedding with a bit of a twist, take note of what this talented team put together.

From the grey tablescape, blooming yellow flowers, and delicate letterpress invitations, we are loving how these dreamy colors and textures effortlessly complement one another. The bride’s unique wedding dress is the real star of the show though. We cannot take our eyes off of its stunning lace top! The bride’s soft makeup look and elegant up-do are truly a look to remember.

Fun and Romantic Engagement Photos in Downtown Austin

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this beautiful engagement session of Kelsey and Joey. In fact, their pictures are very reminiscent of the day Joey proposed. Who doesn’t love some playful whimsy and sunshine?

How The Proposal Happened:

During a warm day at Barton Springs, these two lovebirds were casually hanging out and enjoying the great weather. As Joey took a swim in the pool, which is actually a collection of underground springs, he called out to Kelsey about a treasure he had found while swimming. To get her attention, he called out “Look what I found”!

From the water, he held up a gorgeous diamond ring. Kelsey’s jaw dropped- but her first thought was about the poor person she thought had lost that beautiful ring in the pool. After a few seconds, it finally hit her that the ring Joey was holding out, wasn’t lost at all. Her eyes beamed with delight as she realized that the precious ring was something Joey had bought just for her. This adorable couple will be married this summer!
