Engagement Session on a Boat

Engagement Sessions

Photos by:

This engagement session is like a Christmas treat! Jenica and Brent are one of those couples that one could swear are professional models. Not only did their engagement session happen just two days after Brent proposed, but he also picked this pinup bathing suit for Jenica. Her look was inspired by a photo of Marylin Monroe and the result is pure hotness. Amazing images by the ridiculously talented couple Matt and Angie Sloan from Sloan Photographers.

Then until the end of the year blogging will be a little lighter than usual so I can enjoy my time with friends and family. Starting in January there will be lots of exciting things happening on Ruffled!

Midwestern Winter Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ashley Dru

Oh winter, how I love your deep rich tones, your golds and browns and burgundies. This shoot, photographed and styled by Ashley Dru is winter at its finest: lots of snow, deep amber bottles, and a stunning redheaded bride to tie it all together. We love Ashley’s idea of painting the tips of the balsa flowers with gold paint, adding a little extra pop to an already stunning tablescape!

From the photographer and stylist, Ashley Dru: Winter landscapes in the Midwest can either be white snowy wonderlands or miles and miles of brown wooded areas. Both are beautiful in their own ways! So I decided to create a winter inspiration shoot that combines those two extremes into one amazing theme full of warmth and everything we love about winter time! The backdrop/venue for the shoot was at the beautiful Farmhouse Weddings in Nappanee, Indiana.

Using balsa wood flowers and dried flowers can be a great way of using the readily available resources in the dead of winter when fresh flowers are scarce. The possibilities are endless with colors and you could even dry your own flowers to cut down on cost! You can also add your own personal touches to the white balsa flowers like painting the tips with metallic gold paint :) Small touches like sequin glitter balls and wood twigs for a table runner can add to the overall winter theme!

There is nothing better than a warm drink in the wintertime, so why not create a dessert table that is full of dunkable treats. You can even make your own chocolate dipped spoons for an added touch to those warm hot drinks! Edible glitter on the chocolate doesn’t looks so bad either :) Hot chocolate favors can keep the winter spirit alive for guests even as they are back home in their cozy homes!
