Welcome to the first post of my Wedding Series! I want to bring all of you along with us on this journey of us planning our wedding! I am going to do a series of different post to give advice on things I am learning along the way and to help teach all of my future brides the do’s and don’ts in planning a wedding. This post is all about our engagement pictures and what we have accomplished so far in wedding planning! We had such an amazing time taking these pictures (even though it was 30 degrees) with Libelle Photography. If you are in the Atlanta area looking for an engagement or wedding photographer you HAVE to use her, she is so much fun and and amazing to work with!
We have officially set a date, January 26, 2019 and so far our theme is urban. We have finally decided on our venues for the big day, a gorgeous methodist church that was built in 1891 for the ceremony and for the reception Iron City in Birmingham, Alabama. Iron City is a concert venue that gets transformed into an incredible wedding venue. We are 340 days away from our wedding date and so far crossed off the checklist is my wedding dress (ahhhhh major heart eyes) and we have booked our venues for the ceremony, reception, and rehearsal dinner. So we officially have all of the big pieces taken care of, and now it’s time for all of the fun small details.
There are so many different ways that you can dress/style your engagement pictures. Some people prefer a more casual/nature theme to their pictures. That just didn’t really fit mine and Sam’s personalities or style. We wanted ours to follow our urban theme, have fun and get dressed up, and capture a winter feel (since we are having a winter wedding). After posting a few sneak pictures on Instagram, I had a ton of people ask me about the dress that I wore in our pictures. I got this amazing dress from ASOS, who in my opinion is the best place to go for affordable occasion wear. I fell in love with this dress the second I laid my eyes on it, I mean look at! How could you not? This dress was so unique and fit my style perfectly! To capture the winter feel, I threw my favorite faux fur coat on top and wore just a pair of simple black pointed toe heels.
