I could post all of our engagement pictures. ALL! But here are just a few of my favorites. I love them so much & I can't wait for how our photographer captures our big day! She's so sweet and made us feel so comfortable during them. Austin and I take pics together here and there but this was obviously different. Being asked to basically make out in front of the camera and someone else during an intimate moment can make people nervous.
I have heard from so many people that they like to take a shot or have a drink before to loosen themselves up a bit; I thought about it but decided we would be fine without lol. The hardest part of all of it honestly was what to wear. I had bought this dress a few months earlier and was like hmmm maybe I'll save it for this or a shower or something. The week of came around and I was so incisive. Should we have multiple outfit options? Will I be uncomfortable in a dress and heels? What if I look back and it's too casual? That's why I went with my gut instinct though and wore the dress. I wanted them to feel slightly bridal but not over the top as to capture our true style.
We also didn't want to do the same locations everyone around here does. Nothing too country/outdoorsy looking, but not too classic downtown Bentonville vibes either. We are always looking for new places to shoot here anyways so we went with a different downtown feel and found SO many places and cute spots all three of us were shocked at every corner. Aesthetic on point & we will be back (already have been hahaha).
Needless to say, I'm obsessed with how they turned out. Thanks Kailey for doing our shoot & we can't wait to enjoy our day with you in May!
TIPPPP! Buy all the summer essentials you need for your honeymoon off-season because there are tonnnsss of sales! Like, I'm ready to pack. How could I not be!? Also, so many expenses come up for weddings in the last few months, so if you shop early, you won't be freaking about how you have nothing cute or new to wear on your trip but can't afford it right before. Take some of that packing pressure off people :)
What girl doesn’t want to be dripping in diamonds!? We have started looking at wedding bands and it’s so fun! Seeing what he has in mind to go with my engagement ring is just the sweetest and of course he finds the best of everything!
Today, I want to talk to you all about lab grown, sustainable diamond options. Haute Carat is sustainable, ethical, and all about bringing your classic diamond to life just how you always dreamt it to be!
Haute Carat also offers a try-on, at home option so that you can see what you really like before putting down all that cash $$$$$. It's a big decision weather your man is doing it on his own or you are picking it out together.
They create the ring of your choice in your size and send you a “sample” ring to try for a few weeks! How fun is that!?
Our earth’s resources are only getting lower, so why not get a lab-grown, authentic (100% REAL diamond) piece with your personal touch of style! This type of diamond is also 20-40% less than mined diamonds! HOLY COW, get yourself an upgrade girl ;)
They have more than just wedding bands and engagement rings too. I really love their classic earrings and bracelets. I'm obsessed with their Baguette Diamond Eternity Hoops and Criss Cross Pave Band.
