Intimately Intertwined

Simple and intimate is how I would describe today’s engagement shoot captured by Subtle Production. It’s a no-frills, no-fuss photo set about Ivan and Tracy and the love that they share for each other. The snaps were taken in the morning with the clouds blocking out the sun, bringing a lighter and softer atmosphere to the photographs. I find Tracy’s bouquet of wildflowers to be particularly delightful as well. Scroll through, and let’s dream on a little longer for a love as pure and relaxed as theirs!

17 Illusion Neckline Dresses by Lee Petra Grenebau

Choosing the right gown for your wedding is always fun and inspiring. There so are many cuts, styles, and designs to choose from! For this week’s Fashion Friday feature, we’re zeroing in on illusion necklines from Lee Petra Grebenau‘s Mother of Pearl Collection. Illusion necklines bring drama and an ethereal feminine touch to bridal design. We love the airiness that the floating design elements bring as well as the body contouring silhouettes that are made possible by the sheer panels. This collection is especially intriguing with inspiration coming from nature’s ability to create beauty. The marble-like texture and hint of sheen in every piece create a dreamy vision of shiny pearls. Brides-to-be, you’ll definitely want to add this collection to your inspiration board!
