Weekend in Photos // Settled In

This weekend was low-key and exactly what I needed. I've been a little more stressed out than I'd like to be lately, so we slept in on Saturday and drove through our neighborhood Caribou for coffee before going back home to make ourselves breakfast, read a wonderful article my mom sent from Roanoke about our wedding officiant (making us even more excited for May 3), and spend a large chunk of time on the couch.

I also managed to organize my work space and editorial calendar for the next few weeks, fold some laundry, and go to the gym twice, so it was the perfect mix of a Lazy Weekend and a Get Things Done Weekend.

On Sunday, I met my friend Daci for coffee and writing (we're taking those Old Friend from Far Away prompts seriously, you guys), followed by a quick walk through the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. And on my way back, I swung by our apartment to pick up Rob and we had a nice late lunch/early dinner at one of our favorite placesAll in all, a great few days.


How was your weekend?

Styled "Bridal" Shoot Part Two | Happy Hour

After part one of our styled shoot, we swapped flowers and teapots for a fur, red lipstick, and a bottle of champagne.
 It's amazing how a few different accessories (or, also in this case, beverages) can change the feel of a dress.

Thanks so much for letting us share these--Ashley and I had such a fabulous time shooting together. I can't wait to see my bridesmaids in these dresses when I walk down the aisle in just three months!

This photo shoot was originally featured on Burnett's Boards! You can check it out here

Other details: Vintage fur, Acute Designs belt, J.Crew dress (similar one here) in dusty shale. 
Hair by Monica Wakefield at Oliver's Twist, champagne glass c/o my parent's cocktail glass collection.

Styled "Bridal" Shoot, Part One | Tea Party
When I was back home in Virginia for Christmas, my wedding-photographer-now-friend Ashley and I got together to do a bridal shoot with my wedding dress. Because we're both bloggers at heart and couldn't bear the thought of waiting until May to show our stuff, we also planned a little styled shoot with one of my bridesmaids' dresses. (Thanks, Elena!)

Mary Jo Thompson from Gloriosa Floral Design was kind enough to give us not one, but two gorgeous bouquets for the shoot. It was so fun and totally weird to practice holding a bouquet. We had such a great time! I hope you love these favorite shots of mine, and I can't wait to show you the real bridal ones in just over three months!

Stay tuned for part two next week!
