Fun Arizona Engagement Photography at Sunset

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this sweet engagement photography with you all! From their favorite bar, to the epic desert scenery of Arizona, we love what these two planned for their summer photo session.

Chris and Meagan first met at the law firm they both worked for. They were friends for several years, and would casually flirt with one another from time to time. One night as the two of them went out for a beer after work, Chris decided he would tell Megan about his feelings for her. As he started to confess the way he felt, Megan also shared that she had been harboring a crush on him as well- since day one!

Their first stop for this engagement session, was at the brewery where Chris first confessed his romantic feelings for Megan. They had fun sampling some of their favorite beers, and then went out to the back and took photos by a pretty, historic brick warehouse. Downtown Phoenix is known for cool, artsy shops and allowed for some really unique photography. As they noticed storm clouds coming in, they headed off into the desert for a few final shots. They arrived just in time, and captured some stunning moments of the sun going down over the horizon.

Make sure to pick out your custom save the dates, once you and your better half have taken your engagement pictures!

Boho Central Park Wedding in Summer

Today, we are swooning over this stunning outdoor wedding in New York! This relaxed elopement that Amanda and Jacque planned will make you fall head over heels. This Central Park wedding is intimate and so heartfelt.

It was warm, sunny day in Central Park when these two held their wedding ceremony. They took fun photos at the Cop Cot, Gapstow Bridge, and the Mall and Literary Walk. We can’t stop staring at their matching white ensembles, beautiful headpiece, and vibrant bouquet of flowers. After the ceremony the happy couple and their guests made their way to UVA for some well deserved drinks and dinner.

Today, rose gold takes center stage and is shown off in a monochromatic theme. Get this look: Pair hues of pinks with rose gold and balance it with grayish whites.

Add shine to the wedding party look with sequin bridesmaid dresses and tie the look together with metallic wedding sandals. Keep adding rose gold to your theme with a rose gold cake. It’s sure to grab all the attention!

rose-gold-inspired-wedding-invitationFeatured Wedding Invitation: Golden Succulent. See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.

We love a gilded invitation as an introduction to this wedding theme. The same invitation design used for day-of decor—like menus, table number and place cards—beautifully compliments the reception’s sparkly table clothes and metallic Chiavari chairs. One design can do it all, from Save the Dates to ceremony and reception decor.

Now that you have all the ideas you need to start planning a rose gold wedding theme with sequins, gilded cakes and card designs, make sure you add in other details that are special to the two of you!
