Norfolk Engagement Session: Lauren + Phil!

Wow! This Norfolk Engagement Session was amazing! Lauren and Phil’s engagement session was earlier this month in and around Norfolk, Virginia. The first part of their session was in the woods of a local park. There’s where the magic starts to happen with some intimate photos. One of the session’s most intriguing photographs has them sitting on a park bench, next to another older couple. The rest of their session is in downtown where the couple’s fun and bubbly persona pops! Capturing their engagement session and all of its revelry was Echard from Echard Wheeler Photography. See the photos and catch the sunset after the jump…

DIY Glitter Candle Holders

We spotted these gorgeous (+ easy to do!) DIY glitter candle holders via Weddingstar and couldn’t wait to share them with you. If you need a fun + easy DIY to do this weekend, this is it! I’ve seen glitter candle holders done before, but none have resulted in such a gorgeous design worthy of your wedding centerpiece. With just a few simple supplies (you know, a little spray-on adhesive, gold glitter, and a few tealight luminaries) you can steal this look for your wedding centerpieces. I love the idea of pairing a trio of these glittery candle holders with a vase of fresh flowers. At night, they’ll look stunning with specks of gold glitter and romantic candlelight shining through.

Happy Weekend! ♥

I Belong With You Chair Sign

We’ve all heard the song, “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers by now. You know, the one that goes, “I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweethearrrttt…” I mean, I can pretty much bet money that every time I’m in the car there is a 50/50 chance that I’ll hear it. So, when I spotted this I Belong With You chair sign set over at Host & Toast Studio, I knew I couldn’t keep it to myself. Instead of a traditional bow, ribbon, or Mr. and Mrs. sign, give this version a try: it tells everyone ‘you’re my sweetheart’.

Han får tipset. ) Läs vidare för att bli inspirerad … och dela dina tankar efter posten

!

7 Alternativa Förlovningsring Idéer

Redo att bli inspirerad? Låt oss börja med en av mina favoriter: Emerald Moissanite kvist förlovningsring. Det här är underbara.

1. Emerald Moissanite Twig förlovningsring

Liksom många av Kristins designer, är detta förlovningsring gjuten från en riktig gren för en ”twig’ liknande utseende. Till skillnad från alla ring du någonsin sett, är denna smaragd moissanite förlovningsring gjord med en gnistrande radiant-cut och smaragd-formad Moissanite. Jag älskar vintage-inspirerade pärlstav bezel inställningen (perfekt för vintage-älskande brudar!)

Du måste se den sidan av denna ring. Det är otroligt.

2. Red Diamond Twig Förlovningsring

Den röda diamant förlovningsring gjord av rosenslipade diamanter, som har varit individuellt hand cut (så att var och en är en-av-en-sort!) Hela denna ring är handgjorda från början till slut och är perfekt för vardagsbruk.

3. Päron Diamond Förlovningsring i vitt guld

Rosen skära rustika päron diamant är tillverkad av en solid återvunnet vitt guld band. Den har en cool färgpalett och en djärv, säker infattning. De gnistrande facetter gör denna pjäs en bedövande från mittgången till evigt efter.

4. Choklad Diamond Förlovningsring

Jag har aldrig sett eller hört talas om en choklad diamant innan, så detta förlovningsring helt stod ut för mig. I denna ring, hittar du en gnistrande choklad diamant omgiven av Kristin underskrift Twig Halo ring. Den tjocka Halo är en djärv inställning, vilket ger dig en vintage känsla. Kan användas ensamt eller staplas för maximal wow-faktor.

Här är vad det här ser ut som staplade med en kvist band:

5. Diamond Halo Förlovningsring med Twig Band

Diamanten halo förlovningsring har en mjuk och jordnära estetik. Den har en naturlig obehandlad diamant med en rustik kvalitet och underbara faceting. Den här är satt i ett band gjuten från en riktig filial i massivt återvunnet guld.

6. Blå Safir förlovningsring

Om du är en brud som älskar en pop av färg, är den blå safir förlovningsring något för dig! (Det är lätt din ”något blått”, också.) För denna funktion, hade jag problem med att plocka mellan den blå safir förlovningsring satt i ”Halo”-bandet och Kristin övriga safir ringar … men detta är en av mina all-time favoriter. Den har en ceylon blå safir som är bezel-set och omgiven av signaturen Twig halo band. Denna safir är en mörk, vibrerande kobolt blå färg.

7. Oval Moissanite förlovningsring

Och, sist men inte minst, ta en titt på den ovala Moissanite förlovningsring. Denna ring har utseendet av en traditionell oval diamantring, men det är allt annat än vanliga. Denna ring har en stor glittrande oval Moissanite uppsättning på en vacker kvist engagemang band.

Kolla in sidan:

helig ko. Allvarligt, jag vet inte hur man kunde välja mellan dessa … och det finns mycket mer där detta kom ifrån! För att se hela samlingen, chef över till Kristin Coffin . Och … berättar nedan: vilka av dessa alternativa förlovningsringar är din favorit


Pin It!

Grattis planering!
