Carnival Themed Engagement Photos

Categories Real Weddings

Kristin and Thomas got their cotton candy, bubbles, rides and games on at their carnival-themed engagement session at the Virginia Beach Amusement Park. Photographed byDustin Lewis Images how cute is this couple?! They’re bound and determined to have fun–no matter who’s watching. Looking for cute engagement ideas? Consider letting your hair down and the kid in you out–at your local carnival or county fair.

What’s so great about a carnival-themed engagement session?

  • Color! No shortage there. And wearing something fairly neutral will allow all the background colors and neon signs add pizzazz to your play date.
  • Great photo ops: Rides and games help bring out the kid in you–which can’t help but render beautifully in your captured expressions.
  • Save the Date with a carnival theme: Popular designs like Love Aligned Save the Date CardGeometric Spark Save the Date Postcard and Chic Lines Save the Date Magnet all have a carnival-feel that’s lighthearted and totally fun–perfect for an amusement park e-sesh.

Behind the Design: Floral Watercolor for Summer

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Looking for summer or floral wedding inspiration? Today’s “Behind the Design” has both! Bursting with vibrant color and whimsical flowers, this garden wedding is a thing of beauty and full of inspiring details. Here’s Rachel to share the inspiration for her new Design Suite, Floral Watercolor. 

“I imagined an elegant summer garden wedding as I was creating this design. Floral patterns have become quite a popular trend and using that with watercolor brush strokes sets quite the elegant tone for a summer wedding. How fun is that oversized flower?! Imagine how you could incorporate florals into your day in new and exciting ways! To really bring this watercolor design to life, try this design out on the pressed texture paper.”
