Darling Milk & Cookies Photo Shoot by Love and Lavender

This photo shoot has been in my “favorites folder” to share for awhile now and I think today is the perfect time.  I love, love, love this fun milk & cookies shoot styled by the ladies at Love and Lavender and featured on Style Me Pretty.  Honestly who doesn’t love milk & cookies?  I can never pass up chocolate milk 😉 … enjoy!

On a side note, I LOVE the bride’s dress – a Jim Hjelm stunner and one of my favorites.  If I hadn’t found my dream dress, I wanted this to be the one!

Have a fabulous day!




Valentine Burlap Banner

Is everyone almost ready for Valentine’s Day?  I love all the decorating and DIY projects this time of year.  One fun element I’m loving is Valentine banners and boy do I have a cute one for you!  In fact, this banner is the one I bought for our engagement session/wedding day decor.  The pictures don’t even do it justice, it’s the cutest thing ever!  Brandy from baybeedahlboutique makes the burlap banners, and you can check out her shop here.  There’s all kinds of different designs she sells, all of them unique and oh so cute 🙂

A Twilight Inspired Wedding Photo Shoot

Breaking Dawn came out this past weekend, and yep you’re right, I saw it.  Ummm hellooo, I’ve been waiting for the wedding to come out on the big screen for a long time now and it was beautiful!  I came across this Twilight inspired wedding photo shoot on The Wedding Chicks blog, and although it’s not exactly like the actual wedding in the book and movie, it has those Twiligh-esque elements, not to mention my wedding colors!  Love the bouquet, that cake stand (which I have in black), and the gorgeous deep, red colors.

Starry Night

Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh is one of my all time favorite pieces of art.  The colors, the sky, and all the movement in the piece make it one of the most recognizable images in modern culture.  Janece of Every Elegant Detail was inspired by this painting and put together a wedding inspired shoot that is fabulous!  Just shows you that wedding inspiration really can come from anywhere 🙂
