Dress: c/o Gretchen Scott via Monkee’s of Louisville {via KDF} {similar here & here} | Shoes: Vince Camuto {similar} | Necklace: c/o Benevolent Jewels | Clutch: c/o Two Funny Girls | Watch: Rolex | Ring: David Yurman | Bracelet: c/o Stella & Dot {via KDF} | Sunnies: Prada c/o Eye Care Institute {via KDF} | Earrings: Givenchy | Lips: Sephora ‘Royal Raspberry’ Lipstick

If only you knew what Andrew and I went through to snap these photos.  We stopped by Farmington historic home to take some quick pictures and the sun was at the perfect spot in the sky {oh hey, golden hour}.  So, I’m struttin’ my stuff and he’s snapping away, until I feel a tickle on my arm.  When I look down, my body is covered in gnats.  I’m honestly not exaggerating–they swarmed us.  I {of course} freak out, run away, slapping myself and shaking my body convulsively and then immediately getting into the car {while shutting all doors and windows}.  I even made Andrew take off his shirt and make sure all of those nasty critters were gone {seeing his abs were a perk}.  The fact that any of these pictures turned out decent is nothing short of a miracle because we couldn’t stand still for more than a couple seconds.  There was a wedding reception going on at the other side of the house, so if they had a similar gnat problem then that was probably tragic.  
Moral of the story: I won’t be going back there for a shoot until spring is over.  Yikes.

    Love love this dress! The print is fantastic. These pictures look great, especially given the gnat story. I would have been covered in sweat from running like crazy and acting insane. I don't handle bugs well!

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.
