Our Wedding: The Engagement Photos!


What he's wearing: All J.Crew except the shoes, the shoes are vintage and resoled
What I'm wearing: A ModCloth dress, Forever21 shoes, & a Spotted Moth necklace

Here we go, time to recap this shindig! For those off the grid: Chris and I finally tied the knot last weekend in front of everyone we love. Now it's time to undertake the task of recapping everything that happened! Since I'm still waiting to see all the photos, I thought I would start with our engagement photos!

Back in late June, on a hotter-than-hell evening, Spring of Spring Smith Studios came to Massachusetts to take our picture. Chris and I wanted our location to mean something to us, but also be fun, so we chose the Salem Willows Amusement Park & Casino (that description should be taken very loosely- it's an arcade). We have been taking photobooth photos there since our first date, so incorporating the photobooth was of top priority!

You can see more of our engagement shoot on Springs Blog, and on the Style Me Pretty: Massachusetts blog!

These are lovely!! What a fun theme (and what a fun dress)! I think my favorite is the long shot on the pier where you two are crisply in focus looking at each other and the background out of focus. Perfect!
