Kelsey & Andy: Engagement Photo Ideas

Engagement Photo Ideas
Pretty quickly after we got engaged I started thinking about engagement photo ideas for two reasons: first because I wanted to take advantage of how beautiful fall is in Minnesota and secondly because I wanted to be able to include them in our save the date cards and get them out early. A lot of our guests will be coming from out of state and it will give them more time to make travel arrangements.

A few weeks before the session I brainstormed potential shoot locations with both my fiancé and photographer Hollywould Designs. We settled on three separate places: a very lovely local park that sits on the banks of the Minnesota River, a large wooden bridge on one of our favorite bike trails, and a very cool-looking, worn-down industrial warehouse that’s right down the street from our home. Each of these spots shows off the natural beauty of the area and was special to us as a couple.Kelsey & Andy: Engagement Photo Ideas #peartreegreetings #weddingideas Continue reading

His+Hers=Ours: The planning begins!

Wedding PlanningAfter coming home from our engagement/skiing trip we went to my mom’s house to pick up our puppy, Lola. To our surprise, my family and friends were there to greet us with an engagement party. Such a fun way to come home! They had the room decorated with balloons, flowers and signs to welcome us – it was great! For one of the gifts, my friend had bought me this huge binder with everything you could ever possibly need to know about wedding planning – I was slightly (ha understatement) overwhelmed when paging through it. Am I going to need this? How am I going to pull this off?!

Save the Date CardWe got back home late Sunday evening, exhausted, but I squeezed what energy I did have left to play with our save the dates! I know, we don’t have a date, church, photos or reception site picked out, but those things will come in time. All I wanted to do was play with our names and colors; S+D, Scott & Dani, Scott + Dani, save the date magnets or save the date cards? Ohhh, I’m going to love this!

Save the Date Etiquette

proposalCongratulations on your engagement! A few of my newly engaged friends have asked me about save the date etiquette, so I thought I would share the advice I was given when planning my wedding.

A save-the-date announcement is a great way to inform your guests of the date and location of your wedding, so that they can plan accordingly. It is especially nice if you are planning a destination wedding, or if a lot of your guests will be coming from out of town. There are a few rules of save the date etiquette to follow:

  • Send save-the-dates to everyone on your list, even if you already know whether or not they are attending.
  • Address the announcement only to those who are invited to the wedding. This will eliminate confusion about whether a boyfriend or girlfriend is invited, or whether they can bring the kids.
  • We recommend mailing save-the-date announcements as much as six months before the wedding. This will give your guests ample time to make travel plans.
