Today's wedding is extra special to me in a way that no other wedding ever could be. First and foremost, its the couple... my little sister and the one who finally stole her heart.

When I look back I realize how much their wedding was a true unintentional fingerprint of just who my sister and I are, two very different people. She, an engineer; myself, creatively minded. When Christy & James got engaged a million ideas started to flow about their wedding. Gatsby Gatsby, Art Deco!! Very quickly after exploring venues they realized that while they loved the idea, it wasn't them. Soon enough they knew the right choice, an organic chemistry wedding nestled into their very own backyard. Immediately following that decision came the science flavored shopping spree of beakers, test tubes, microscopes, vintage chemistry sets (complete with mercury, yes mercury!), pipettes, and so many more delicious items that I will allow you to discover on your own. While those wedding decor elements are amazing as is, Christy & James' have a pension for cool interior decor pieces in the home that we had our eye on. These vintage furniture pieces were immediately liberated from their home...

Sweeping plantations are always a big draw when it comes to anything romantic. Plantation weddings, plantation engagement sessions, even the perfect spot for the perfect date. Tennessee wedding photographer Erin Morrison Photography recently journeyed down to the magnificent Middleton Place Plantation for a late winter plantation engagement session that took advantage of the gorgeous rays cast by the raising sun. Starting out on the sprawling lawn of a perfectly southern brick estate, the couple snuggled up as the wind drew gusty breezes off the banks of the Ashley River. Sun flare filled each frame in a delicious way, while the wind made for some wonderfully romantic moments. No trip to a plantation would be complete without heading to the gigantic live oaks, all of which are draped with ever iconic Spanish Moss, a total must for portraits. To inject some true winter vibes into their late winter plantation engagement session, our cozied up couple brought along a uniquely cool oversized winter wedding bouquet from Tennessee florist Lisa Foster Floral Design Studio. To create the winter bouquet, Lisa Foster...

Just in time to get us ready for Valentine's Day, this dreamy sunset styled romantic beach engagement session from Tennessee wedding photographer Rae Marshall Weddings is the perfect engine rev! Set along the Florida shoreline, the team created a simple yet powerful setting that was highlighted by the setting sun. To dial up the romance, Leelee's Blooms worked with drippy greens from the rose dotted garland that lined the step ladder to the Amaranthus which was the perfect accent to the beach swept floral arrangements. The final piece to the puzzle with a loose fitting burgundy dress that danced on the wind paired with loose lock beachy hair. The end result is simple beach engagement session with a lot of heart that shows just how perfect a few key pieces truly is!
