Sunflower Engagement Photos That Van Gogh Would Love!

Sunflower Engagement Photos In A Field of Happiness

Vincent van Gogh would love Kaitlyn and Travis’ sunflower engagement photos–so full of charm and energy. Like being surrounded by thousands of smiley faces, these two couldn’t look happier in this field of sun-seeking flowers. The cheeriness is contagious too, isn’t it?! You can’t help but smile and get your happy on. Enjoy the sweetness of this sunflower-filled, sunshine-y sesh from Nicolette Sessin.

Sunflowers Make the Perfect Wedding Flower {don’t you think?}

  • symbolize adoration and loyalty
  • great complement to a rustic or country style
  • can be easily combined with other flowers to raise the chic factor
  • they’re so cheery! {they literally seek out the sun}

Minimalist Approach To A Rustic Winter Wedding

Oct 5 2015

Rustic Winter Wedding That’s Oh So Soft & Serene

Today’s “Color Monday” inspiration is for a relaxed but elegant rustic winter wedding with soft neutrals and a pop of burgundy. Imagine a quiet winter wedding–where the snow is falling gently and the wedding style is eclectic and minimalist. In mismatched dresses, your bridesmaids are kept warm wrapped in cardigans and wearing winter boots. {Super fun–great photo ops, right?!} The venue, of course, is located in a place that sings of warmth and romance–perhaps a mountain resort or a chalet that complements the rustic ambiance you’re going for. And setting the mood–is an invitation suite that draws guests into the nature-inspired look and feel. The winter berries {in design and color}, breathe joy into a snowy scene and a neutral color palette. And, they can easily be carried through to enclosure items and wedding décor itself. So gorgeous!

If you were having a winter wedding, what do you see as the most important design or décor element?  

Colors: Sage (C54 M30 Y64 K2) |  Chocolate |  Champagne  |  Burgundy

Advice you’re glad you took

… To take my time planning so I could make sure I have everything I want and to make sure I take a few minutes throughout the day to step back and look around at all my family and friends celebrating and enjoy all the details I planned out.

The Dress: My dress was a bit of a fit and flare gown from Essence of Australia. It has sweetheart top, beading all throughout the gown, and the skirt was multiple layers of lace that reflected through each layer. It was amazing!

The Shoes: I had blingy Kate Spade heels that were so comfortable! My hair was in a loose braid that trailed off into a side pony with two ivory flowers.

The Bouquet: My bouquet was so pretty! It was an elegant, loose, more airy bouquet with a palette of: ivory, light champagne, blush, and pale peach garden roses.

Best part of the whole wedding day…

There were 2 best parts … walking down the aisle and seeing the person you are going to marry waiting there for you so you can begin your lives together. And … realizing at that moment all the hard work you’ve put into this day is paying off in that very moment.
