Our bride wore a stunning handmade tulle floor length skirt topped with a gold sequin sweetheart top. She carried a beautiful arrangement full of fresh pinks, peaches, and greens. Our groom looked relaxed and modern in slim fitting suit slacks, a crisp white shirt, slim tie and matching boutonniere.

There were plenty more sweets available on our custom candy buffet which was adorned with a love inspired banner. A handcrafted ribbon backdrop in mint, peach, lace, and gold sequins served as an eye catching piece. Custom gold drink stirrers added just the right touch.

The Perfect Engagement Outfit

Hurtienne Photography

Hunting for the perfect engagement outfit, or two, or three? This beautiful engagement shoot features 5 fashion friendly outfits that you might just fall in love with.

For her engagement shoot Amanda chose all Free People pieces to work with. Bringing only a few pairs of shoes, easy slips, and dresses to mix and match. All these easy transitions ensured she’d have a smooth, no fuss day with plenty of outfit choices. To keep it simple, they made sure Sean wore a neutral palette that would compliment all of Amanda’s outfits. See all the looks in detail in the full gallery here, captured by Hurtienne Photography.

Engagement Outfit Ideas

Amanda left a few pieces the same throughout the shoot including a Terracotta Lace Halter Bra and her usual jewelry finds- a studded bangle, a few midi rings and a low maintenance nude manicure. Both Amanda and Sean’s outfits pull the same color story, making a perfect match without the “matchy matchy” element.

Second look: This look brought in some casual combat boots to pair with a high low gauze dress (above, in first image). By pairing her light and airy dress with a more rugged Steve Madden Troopa boot, Amanda’s outfit has a cool and effortless edge. Sean opted for a long sleeve Henley, and added a boutonniere to bring their look together.

Third look: This lilac Tattered Up Shred Slip made for an easy quick change. Amanda sticks to earth tones in her day to day wardrobe and makeup, so adding a gem color to her lips was a great change for her.

Steal Amanda’s Look

Fourth look: Simple chic is the name of Amanda’s game. Popping Free People’s Ruffle Tunic right on top of the Tattered Up Shred Slip and changing into a Sam Edelman ankle boot made you look twice at the slip you just saw peeking out from underneath. The light chiffon ruffles were a perfect choice to equate with the river backdrop.

Last look: Ending the day on a serious high note. In this jaw dropping Free People Exclusive, Amanda wasn’t shy about showing it off (below, last image). The Goth meets flower goddess dress was bought a few years ago on an impulse. When putting together looks for these photos, we knew no matter how extravagant, we would make this dress work. What a perfect way to show it off in the first of many monumental photos for this couple.

Winter Wedding Ideas

We decided to create a look using various elements from our inspiration board and our main focus was texture, complemented by a rich palette of gold, dark red, green, and peach. With the barn space being a warm wooden color, we chose to lighten it up by using cream linens, candles, and place settings. We selected both gold and glass as the table feature and I absolutely adore the effortlessly perfect result.

Info On The Florals

Our florals are where our main focus, texture, came in. The variation in colors and grains was just seamless and they did a fabulous job of connecting all the other table details together. The use of fruit was an amazing way to add that extra bit of color to the table top. It ensured that we didn’t have color gaps or too much of one color in any given space. It also brought in more details to the table that would tie in the romantic and rustic-ness and give your guests something to talk about. Our main challenge with this color palette was to ensure that the table didn’t look like something out of a Christmas catalog and I am ecstatic with how well all of the elements and suppliers worked together. I am so thankful to have worked on this and my hope is that we are able to inspire both brides and vendors.
