Christmas Come Early.....TWO Wedding Wednesdays this week!!

I put together flowers/decor for and subsequently attended the first wedding of the season this weekend, 
and in it's honor
I'm giving you not ONE, but TWO Wedding Wednesday's this week.

I'm also trying to make amends for the one that I didn't post last week.

Today I'd like to talk about Engagement Photos.
Specifically, What I think is a SUPER idea.

I want to start seeing some originality with Engagement Photos.
Because if I see one more Facebook Album with a couple in matching oxfords, with their dogs, in a park, I'm going to throw up on them.

You know what I really like?

This photo-shoot that Brangelina did for W Magazine.

 I love the retro feel of it.
It's very 1960's, which I love, OBVIOUSLY.
The setting, Angelina's clothing/hair, and the storyline make it.

I've seen a few online albums of couples who have attempted the same thing and I really like them.

Like this couple, whom I spotted on Green Wedding Shoes.

And I think this couple, photographed by Sarah Yates, has the best rendition of the 
W shoot out of any I've seen.

What a fun shoot to re-enact!

Add some luxe, 60's inpsired clothing....

Richard Nicoll




Christian Louboutin

and some pretty shoes and vintage jewelry....

Vintage Kenneth Jay Lane

And the perfect retro setting....

Frank Sinatra's Twin Palms Estate in Palm Springs

and a great photographer.....

And you can have a Retro Engagement shoot just like Brangelina.

I think it's a super duper idea.
