Real Couples: Ashley & Josh's Romantic Summertime Engagement Session

This cute as can be couple's engagement session was sent to us from Florida Wedding Photographer Kiersten Grant. The area they had their session is so colorful and beautiful! Love the white buildings and color shutters, such a classic look. More importantly, love this couple's very strong chemistry, it exudes throughout the session.

Real Weddings: A Charming Arizona Ranch Wedding

I love when I learn of new-to-me cities or towns in my own state that I am a native of. Today's featured wedding takes place on a ranch in Skull Valley, Arizona...I have never ever heard of such a place! I had to google it, and found it's not far from the town of Prescott, which I know quite well. So odd that there are places out there I know nothing of, and then I learn of them while blogging about weddings. Funny how that works, sometimes. 

Anyway, onto this adorable couple's wedding, which was submitted by Julius Photography. Chelsea & Jonathan's wedding took place at Van Dickson Ranch, and is full of much charm, with a great color palette of bright blue, green and gray.

Real Couples: Manuela & Daniel's Fun Vegas Anniversary Shoot

We have a fun anniversary/trash the dress session to share with you today, thanks to Las Vegas Wedding Photographer Jamie Y! There is much fun to be had, and Vegas offers a great variety of backdrops for a fun photo session, from the iconic street scenes to the artistic angles.

What we know of Manuela & Daniel is that they are from Switzerland, and decided to spend their one year anniversary in Vegas. They also decided to have fun in their wedding clothes, and even a pair of scissors is in hand! Eek! But now worries, all good fun and laughs for the happy couple, as you soon shall see.

Real Weddings: Kendra & Thomas' Sentimental Barn Wedding

We have such a sweet wedding to share with you today, full of beautiful, sentimental details. If you're a lover of old quilts, burlap, chalkboards, buttons and handkerchiefs, get ready to pin away the details! The submission is from Tennessee wedding photographer team Lady and Mister Photographie, and are we ever so happy to share the barn wedding goodness with you all!

Real Couples: Dawn & Troy's Playful Engagement Session

This lovely couple, Dawn and Troy, have pretty stressful jobs; she's a paramedic, he's a firefighter. What a perfect pair, though, to be in similar fields that work together! But on the day of their engagement session with Tim Kyle Photography, they were all smiles, and you can just hear their laughter emitting from their images. It's a refreshing session for sure!

I love the fact, too, that this was shot in a rustic industrial spot with an old barn in the distance, and aged train tracks, which are both always a plus for me. I can never tire of sessions that happen on/near the train tracks-they make for some great props!

Silhouette Cameo DIY: Spooky Paper Rosette Banner

I have another fun Silhouette Cameo DIY to share with you today, given that it's Halloween season! This isn't entirely bridal related, however, the banner can be made for any of your wedding events. I'm just using this "spooky" example, which is hanging in my home for the holiday month.

You all know how much I love my Silhouette Cameo & Silhouette Portrait. It's the must have tool for crafters, especially DIY minded brides! This tool can carry you far into your upcoming events and home decor beyond the wedding. So, it's an investment beyond measure.
