Happy Monday! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Memorial Day if you’re in the U.S. I promised I’d be back tomorrow, but couldn’t wait to share these wedding invitations inspired by Bob Dylan’s first album, The Freewheelin’ in 1963. Barb and Josh had their engagement session inspired by the cover, and how did Josh propose to Barb – singing one of Bob Dylan’s songs of course!

From Maia of Toast Photography:
The whole theme of their engagement session was around Bob Dylan, specifically The Freewheelin’ cover. Bob Dylan and Suze had a dynamic relationship, as is the case of Josh and Barb. He proposed to her on thanksgiving, surrounded by their “family”; aka, friends, and as the circle was coming around on all friends discussing what they are thankful for, Josh started reciting a song from Bob Dylan before getting down on his knees and proposing to Barb, that she was what made me love this song out of them all. They truly are an amazing couple, and you can see it in the photographs. The concept of the engagement photo were on two specific concepts, Bob Dylan and the late nights they spent at cafe’s getting to know one another when they first started dating. The Freewheelin’ photoshoot came together brilliantly from their wardrobe, the album cover itself, and the random found blue VW bus I saw in the location we were shooting. The owner was kind enough to unlock the car to let us shoot in!
