The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and it is the perfect time to shop for your Fall engagement session! Today I’m sharing two different looks that would be perfect for an autumn engagement session. I absolutely adore this peasant dress and can see this bag and these earrings being worn a lot this Fall. It’s important to wear flats for your engagement as you most likely will do a lot of walking and you can’t go wrong with this cute blush pair! Remember today is the last day for early access before the sale opens to everyone tomorrow!

With Christmas only a week away it feels like the perfect time to share these holiday themed portraits. Lindsay Connors Photography captured these festive photos at a local Christmas tree farm.

When you choose a location to get married one of the most important styling tips you can follow is to let the venue dictate the style. These driftwood bridal portraits from Carrie Joy Photography are a perfect example of that rule. Detailed I Do’s planned a relaxed coastal styled shoot along the coast of Jekyll Island. The existing driftwood served as the anchor for Victory Blooms floral installation. Shells, sea glass, and Spanish Moss pull in the elements of the region while pink roses and succulents add a pop of color. Click Here for more driftwood wedding inspiration.

A song for your weekend.
The lowcountry is such a wonderful destination for winter weddings. When the weather gets cooler the humidity and bugs vanish making outdoor weddings that much more enjoyable. A Charleston Bride planned an elegant jewel toned reception for Maria and Sean’s wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation. Farm tables were dressed in greenery with bright pops of purple while peaceful river views served as an idyllic backdrop for both the ceremony and reception.
Lacher’s Lens Photography worked with a team of vendors to bring this simple and organic wedding inspiration to life. Pulling inspiration from the natural surroundings at 5Eleven in Pensacola, The I Do List created an intimate wedding tablescape. Marble menus adorn a farm table draped with a light blush runner while organic, loose florals by Flowers by Milk & Honey top off the look.

Surrounded by giant oak trees and dripping Spanish moss on every side, it’s no wonder Jess and Zach chose the historic Oldfield Club in Okatie, South Carolina for their nuptials. Design Studio South crafted their wedding around a neutral color palette which let the historic venue shine. Bridesmaids were dressed in floor-length taupe dresses while rustic farm tables were lined in fresh greenery and white menus. We’re absolutely smitten with the warm photos The Happy Bloom captured especially those of the couple aglow in golden sunlight.
