Engagement Session: Shelby + Daniel

Shelby and Daniel are getting married at Lake Lanier Islands Resort (PineIsle Pointe) tomorrow! This couple is just the sweetest and I cannot wait to share all the fun details their wedding has in store. We're crossing our fingers that the rain holds out but either way, it's going to be one heck of a beautiful celebration! Oh, and did I mention their photographers are none other than the crazy talented husband + wife team of Scobey Photography? Yep, they'll be along for the ride too! Here's a peek at the engagement pictures they shot of the gorgeous couple last fall.

Real Wedding: Marissa + Matt

Happy Friday, lovelies! I am in full swing with another fun wedding season and in the midst of all the planning, I am playing major catch up on my blog (which is long overdue!). First up is the beautiful, elegant and memorable wedding day of Marissa and Matt. I had such an amazing time planning this wedding and it's easy to see why! You can read much more about this sweet couple and their beautiful day on their Style Me Pretty feature, here. Here are the gorgeous photos by the uber talented Amy Arrington Photography and special thanks to Design House of Flowers for their stunning florals + decor.

This beautiful flower arrangement of 65 roses was dedicated all those, including Marissa herself,
who battle cystic fibrosis. To learn more about 65 roses and cystic fibrosis, visit here.
