Well, I must say, my absolute favorite vendor thus far is my photographer, Kamila Harris. Here’s a few of my favorite engagement shots from our photo session this fall!

Why, yes, in fact. My shirt is from Anthropologie. Glad you asked! My mother bought me the necklace I’m wearing as an engagement gift– a mother of pearl, leaf shaped pendant. It’s beautiful, perfect for fall, and totally me. Ironically, I think that the shirt Brandon’s wearing also came from my mom– a Christmas gift from last year, perhaps?lb_1066


I love the coloring in this one, and how close we’re holding each other.



This one reminds me of the Beatles’ Abbey Road… I feel like a rock star. A rock star getting married.

This one is pretty artsy. I love it.



Classic shot. With a white picket fence!



And to end with two favorites:

Walking off into the sunset


And, lastly, the one. This reminds me of a Monet, water lillies (leaves) and all. This was taken not far from my home in New Jersey, and is absolutely breathtaking. My sister, who drives over this bridge on a daily basis, was shocked shocked shocked! when she found out where this photo was taken. It’s going to be framed. Hands down.



One of the things I love most about Kamila, in addition to being so fun and easy to work with, is that Brandon and I have full rights to our photos. Because I love them so so SO much, I embarked on my very first DIY project for our wedding. Using Blurb, I made our guestbook with images from our wedding! It’s huge, coffee table sized, and has a few pictures and LOTS of empty space on each page, for guests to sign, leave notes, draw pictures, etc. I love it because it will be more functional than a traditional guest book; we can display it in our house, rather than a satin, ribbon-clad guest book of yore. Also, what a great way to show off our beautiful engagement pictures!

I can’t wait to see the book. It was shipped to my home in New Jersey, not to my school address. So, sadly, I’ve got a while to wait. Until then, my digital proofs will keep me company.

Au revoir!

Well, I thought I’d try my hand at an Inspiration Board. While most ideas that I have for my own wedding are solidified, I really enjoyed working on this! I responded to a post on Style Me Pretty, entering to win $500, should my board be picked. Here’s what I’ve come up with in response to the following query:

I am getting married May 1, 2010 in Charlottesville, Virginia.  I am a woman who has been dreaming about her wedding her entire life.  Now that the time has come for me to plan I have begun to feel very overwhelmed.  Specifically, I am having a hard time editing myself.  I see all of these ideas and details that I like and I am not quite sure how to incorporate these ideas into my special day.  The weddings that stand out to me (and I think most others) is the ones that work in small, unexpected details.  The details are what I am getting lost in.  So, I come to you for help. 

I know that I my wedding colors are going to be a bright pink (more raspberry) and white. I will be married in a vineyard and the ceremony will be outside.   I am a girl who is attracted to shabby chic styles. I see myself using more vintage chic/rustic type of details and designs.  My friends and family would describe me as very preppy and not as trendy as other 25 year olds.  While I am not desperate for penny pinching ideas, I also do not have an extravagant budget to work with. Can you help me figure out where to begin?

SO, here’s what I’ve come up with. I wanted to use the raspberry shade, but offset it with shades of paler pink. As this bride is getting lost in the details, I chose some detail-oriented options, rather than some big-picture items.
