{engaged.well} Melanie & Daniel’s Engagement by Solas Studios

Solas Studios

It’s Fall! Well, kinda! I’m personally still taking in all the warm days, summer storms and sparkling sunlight, but equally as excited to let Autumn start creeping in! I thought this charming engagement shoot, by Solas Studios, was the perfect way to start us off! The location, a family friend’s residence, is rustic at it’s best, with warn bricks, a true barn and countryside for days! I love how comfortable they are with each other (Chucks and all!) and how their personalities just shine- they are going to have a sweet ride through marriage!

Now, who’s ready for some hot cider and cuddling up under your favorite blanket?! This girl! Tell me, what do you love about fall? What gets you excited for the change of season, one of the most favorite seasons? Especially if you’re a bride, got a favorite element you can’t wait incorporate in your autumn nuptials?

{love.local} lovegiveswell gratitude and generosity

Our incredible gifted wedding went off with flying colors! Our bride and groom were married in style, their guests enjoyed offerings that surprised and delighted them, and everywhere you looked that day, there was an outpouring of generosity, talent and love. I can’t wait to show you the wedding in all its glory, it truly was magical. But even greater than our sense of accomplishment is our gratitude to the generous vendors that came on board to a never-been-done, out-of-the-box, gifted wedding, and took a big chance on lovegiveswell. Alice G. Patterson Photography gifted her talents to give us something truly special prior to the wedding day. At our final details vendor meeting we set up a portrait session for each of the vendors to get a fun portrait of who they are and what they do. Holly and the A-List Artistry team gifted their makeup skills and gave us all a fresh look! Not everyone who gifted could make it, so they are listed below as well. Here’s tribute to these wedding pros who loved big and gave well. Simply put: I am so grateful.
