Hey lovelies, happy New Year!!! I cannot believe we are already almost a week into 2018! While 2017 was a great year with many great memories, I am excited to see where this year will take us. One thing I am SO excited about for 2018 is our wedding, EEK!! I cannot wait to marry my best friend and start our journey together as husband and wife. To kick off the New Year we headed up to one of our favorite spots and put my Christmas gift to good use. The hubby bought me a new lens for my camera, with the help of my best friend and other half to this blog we were able to get some engagement pictures. HUGE shout out to Sarah for braving the cold with us, it was FREEZING but we ended up with some shots that make my heart flutter.
I was searching for the perfect outfit for this shoot and at first thought I wanted a white ensemble, but when I stumbled upon this dress I knew it was the perfect fit for what I had in mind. I am planning to put a picture on our invitations and wanted to coordinate the colors of my outfit with our wedding colors and invitations so everything was cohesive. This dusty rose color was the perfect choice for that, I also can’t get enough of the velvet trend, I blame my mom she dressed me in everything velvet growing up and I guess it has stuck with me. Nathan told me I had figure skater vibes going on (LOL), I can’t disagree but I love the way it looked. I forgot to mention the best part, I found this dress for less than $15!! I found mine at Forever21, you can shop below for the exact dress as well as some other beautiful velvet options!
I cannot wait to share more of our wedding planning throughout the next few months as we prepare for the big day. If you have any tips or advise when it comes to wedding planning I would love to hear them, comment below! Xo
