Inspiration: Chevron Pattern

I just love this timeless + chic zig zag pattern! Chevron is one of the most classic graphic patterns of all time; it's basically the next best thing to the polka dot! It has shown up everywhere from the fashion runways to the living room rug. Now this pattern has now taken on a fierce position in the wedding world and I am loving it! The best thing about the chevron pattern? It's versatility! It can be anything from modern, to preppy and even vintage depending on the color and what design elements you pair it with. Go mod with black and white plus pops of yellow or keep it soft with light pink and white and a little lace. Oooh… I get so excited thinking of the possibilities! Just one thing to keep in mind when it comes to this bold pattern, a little really goes a long way! Here are a few of my favorite ways to showcase some chevron love in your wedding.

Engagement Session: Cara & Anthony

Cara and Anthony are getting married in 30 days!! Woohoo! Their wedding will be at Lake Lanier Islands Resort (one of our favorite venues!) and is going to be beyond gorgeous…just you wait!!! Here is a sneak peek of the gorgeous couple from their engagement session with the fabulous Rebecca Lawler of Graphite Photography. The couple met at UGA so it was only fitting to go back where it all started in Athens, GA to capture these pictures. Don't you just love Cara's red dress? Lovely!

Just by chance, this was their fortune cookie on the day of this photo session! :)
