Flea Market Engagement Shoot

My heart just may have skipped a beat upon setting eyes on this brilliant engagement shoot, photographed by the talented Millie Holloman! The gorgeous couple used a flea market to set the stage for their vintage inspiration. From a "picker" like me, I cannot think of a better or more fitting backdrop for a junk-loving couple! OBSESSED!

Rustic-Garden Inspiration

DIY Mason Jar Ice Cream Dessert

I, like most people LOVE ice cream. Adding to my list of loves, as you all know, is my fondness towards mason jars. So naturally, this DIY has me really excited: DIY Mason Jar Ice Cream Dessert?! Yes please!

 Simply fill mini mason jars with your favorite flavor of ice cream or Italian ice (this example uses lemon sugar cookie ice cream and strawberry/lemon swirled Italian ice). Decorate mason jars and place atop a large bucket of ice. For added fun, set up a "toppings-table" for a do-it-yourself ice cream bar that all your guests are sure to enjoy!

Stealing Hearts; Bonnie & Clyde

From the words of fabulous photographer Brooke Boling;

"While they never had any intentions of actually robbing anyone, Ashlee and Evan still found a way to steal my heart. Armed with nothing more than tons of youthful energy and a taste for all things retro, these partners in crime prove once again that all it takes to make for a perfect day is a great location {Lebanon, Tennessee} and a devilish plan." 

And boy, did they steal my heart as well! I am dying over this 'Bonnie and Clyde' theme, I definitely wouldn't mind being an accomplice to photos like these!
