I can’t believe that it has taken me so long to post some of our engagement photos. School has been drawing to a close lately and has been keeping me insanely busy. But I am so in love with how our engagement session turned out and I wanted to share some of them with y’all! All of the photos were taken by the lovely and talented Katie Snyder. Our session took us to a few of our favorite neighborhoods in the city: East Atlanta Village, all around The Stacks, and a few in Virginia Highlands.
This was one of my favorite backdrops. The vines make for such a dreamy setting!
The view of the city from the roof is just breathtaking at The Stacks. But even more than that, this spot is extra special for us because it is the exact spot that we got engaged!! I was standing right in that same corner when Zac proposed!
There are so many photos that I love but these were just my very, very favorites!! Hope you enjoyed them!
Today was filled with white dresses! Me, Mom, and Lyd took off around 10am in search for ‘the perfect dress.’ We didn’t get back home until around 10pm.. With no dress in hand. Not because we didn’t find any that I liked but because my biggest flaw is indecisiveness. I can never decide on ANYTHING. So when faced with hundreds of gorgeous dresses and told that you can only choose one, its’s a nightmare.
I think my problem is (at least when it comes to fashion) that I know exactly, down to the detail, what I want in my head. I’m super picky but when I can’t find that in reality, I just wind up confused. So to solve my dilemma, I have scoured the internet looking for the perfect gown so I can simply order and get it over with. haha. I decided to compile my top picks all in one place to compare and make the final judgement. Now some of these gowns are ones I’ve physically tried on but others are ones I’m contemplating ordering straight offline without ever seeing in person..
After weeks of searching I’ve gotten my head stuck in a rut by looking at these same few dresses over and over without making any forward progress toward a decision.. so that leads me to my request from you all. I would love some outsider perspective on what you think of them!! Keep in mind it will be on the beach!
JCrew Bridal- Simple & Elegant
Etsy- Dainty & Unique
Vera Wang- Greek Goddess (I could choose any color waist sash)
Sarah Seven- Pretty & Textured
Here’s to hoping one of these lovely gowns falls from the sky in the coming weeks! Let me know which is your favorite!
Big ‘official’ announcement. As few of you may already know, it’s kind of leaked to some that Zac and I are getting married in the US Virgin Islands!! But for the rest of y’all, now the cats out of the bag.. And, in the spirit of destination weddings, it’s going to be a real intimate affair with mainly just immediate family. I think we’re totalling 19 guests! And since I won’t be getting to send out any real save the dates, I doodled up one of my own (and because I got this ampersand stamp this week, am obsessed, and needed a reason to use it ;))! So as it shows, we’re getting married on June 9th! Which is exactly 4 months from yesterday!
Only downfall of a far-off location wedding is that so many of our dear friends won’t be able to attend… But, no fear, we’ve thought through this. As a couple, we desperately want everyone to feel like a part of our story so we’ve made some decisions that can hopefully involve everyone. Some of you may know the lovely Katie Snyder, she will be in attendance taking some beautiful photos of our special day so that everyone can feel like they were on the beach with us! Also, most importantly, the PARTY!! We’re planning to have some sort of reception party once we get back to the States so that we can all CELEBRATE together!
So friends, really just wanted to let out a few details so everyone can know what direction we’re headed in with the BIG DAY! We’re both some of the worst individuals when it comes to decision making. So naturally, after months of lolly-gagging around, once we finally made our minds up, I couldn’t wait to share the secret! That’s the latest update on our DARLING ADVENTURE!
