Shabby Chic E-Session: Katie and JustinOctober 10, 2012 | Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery
Today marks a milestone for Truly Engaging–a country engagement session with a bunch of props in a watermelon field–at sunrise. I love it! Justin and Katie are fans of the country and wide open spaces so a watermelon field is the perfect love shoot locale for this adorable couple! How could anyone have this much fun so early in the morning?! I get the feeling that no matter what time of day, Justin and Katie are having a blast with each other! Enjoy this sweet prelude to their big day …
Wedding Style: Romantic-Rustic, Shabby-Chic
Wedding Colors: Victorian Lilac, Blush Pink, Ivory & Silver
Engagement Session location: near Poseyville, Indiana at sunrise (in a watermelon field!)
Setting a perfect tone for their shabby-chic wedding style is Romantic Ruche, the Save the Date Postcard design that Katie and Justin personalized.

Our photographers were fantastic! They’re a husband and wife team with two different, complementary shooting styles. I was pretty nervous about being in front of a camera but with all the laughter and wonderful guidance, I felt at ease after only a few minutes. They were also great about including all the props I brought to photo session: family quilts, picture frames for our photo booth, teapots that will be table centerpieces, etc. It really made for a wonderful way to tie our engagement pictures in with our wedding day.
I loved that I was able to edit and save the design to work on it again later. Also, having the ability to leave notes to the designers was really helpful. There were a few changes that I asked them to make to the original design, and they came through flawlessly on the first edit. Everything was completed in a timely manner as well – our save the dates even arrived ahead of schedule! Why did you choose this particular design? We were looking for a postcard style with a single photograph–something simple that would complement our wedding theme. How does it fit with your wedding style? The romantic touches on this save the date design echo some of the other pieces we’re planning to use at our reception, including the picture frames shown in the photo.
