Twilight Inspiration Board Engagement Shoot

For all those upcoming holiday engagements what better than the mysterious and romantic theme of Twilight for your fall/winter engagement shoot? You don’t have to wear matching Bella and Edward outfits to capture the mystical essence in your shoot; plus it’s a bonus that a gloomy winter day won’t ruin your photos, it will make them! I hope you enjoy the Twilight inspiration board.

Monday “Rocks”!- Prince William & Kate Middleton

Good morning on another Monday!  I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving celebrations!

The recently announced royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, are finally engaged after 8 years of dating.  For the last year, the two have been denying rumors of engagement… but last month during a vacation to Kenya they made it official. Prince William’s influential mother, Princess Diana, was able to play a very special part in this all.  The 18-carat white gold oval blue sapphire engagement ring, enhanced with fourteen diamonds was the very same ring Prince Charles gave to Princess Diana when they decided to get married.

Colored center stones are in! Below are rings similar to that of Kate Middleton’s engagement ring…

This Tiffany & Co. engagement ring is absolutely gorgeous, yet untraditional.  The setting for this spectacular sapphire was carefully designed to highlight its deeply saturated color.  This ring is shown with an oval sapphire, half-moon and round brilliant diamonds in platinum.

This Harry Winston micropave engagement ring with a cushion-cut sapphire center stone and pave diamonds, set in platinum is another ring I would not mind seeing on my finger!

This three stone engagement ring is crafted of solid 950 platinum. The natural blue sapphire oval-cut center stone is accented by 2 high quality natural round diamonds.  This ring is available at Weston Fine Jewelry .


This ring is a bit more detailed compared to the others.  This 14 carat cushion-cut natural sapphire is surrounded by round diamonds with heart-shaped side stones and milgrain edging.  You can find this ring at Jared’s, in the Le Vian collection.

Have a great rest of the week and good luck with all of your Christmas shopping!

Love,

A Thanksgiving “Yes” Wednesday

Happy Thanksgiving! We should always be telling our loved ones how thankful we are for them besides just around Thanksgiving. However since it is Thanksgiving here are a few ways to tell your significant other why you are so thankful for them in your life!

1. Leave them “thankful” notes around the house, maybe places they normally get ready, their car or office. Make sure every one says something different. Another great touch would be to make home made cards.  The last one could be an act of service you will do for them to show just how thankful you are!

2. Take the word thankful and do something creative off of each letter. Here are some examples

T: TV watch their favorite tv show this time

H: HUG them and tell them you love them

A: ASK if there is something they need done

N: NEEDS know their needs and meet them

K: KISS give them an unexpected kiss!

F: FUN plan a fun activity you never do together

U: UNDERSTANDING take some time to sit down together and understand that fight or miss-communication you keep having

L: LAUGH rent a funny movie, tell funny memories!

The Giving Tree Proposal

Hunter is a romantic at heart so when it came to his marriage proposal, brainstorming ideas was endless fun. On his first date with Adrienne they spent some time talking under a big oak tree in NYC. The next day, he volunteered to help clean out a school and found one of his favorite childhood books The Giving Tree. It reminded him of the tree from his first date with Adrienne and decided to hold onto it. Years later his proposal idea took place in an apple picking orchard inspired by The Giving Tree.

What Adrienne didn’t know was Hunter sent a few items to the orchard for the surprise of her life. During apple picking, she was stunned when they came across a big apple tree decorated with hanging twinkle lights and mason jars filled with candles (battery-operated to make it easy). The real surprise were the five Giving Tree books hanging from various branches. Inside each of the book covers was dedicated to a memory of Adrienne and how her promised to provide and take care of her just like the book. Lastly, he pulled out his original copy, and told her the story behind keeping the book for her to have one day. Inside the cover was a photo of the exact tree they sat under on their first date along with another dedication… to their future as husband and wife.  Without hesitation, she said “Yes!” and they enjoyed an engagement picnic under their “giving tree.”

I get a few butterflies when I envision their proposal story unfolding. I wouldn’t be surprised if that book is framed in their home. Oh and something we suggested was homemade jars of apple sauce as their wedding favors. How cute would that be?!! Congrats to the beautiful couple. You’re lovely.

Monday “Rocks”!- Jessica Simpson

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday!

One of my favorite celebrities, Jessica Simpson was recently proposed to by her boyfriend of 5 months, Eric Johnson.  Which all seems somewhat coincidental, considering her ex-husband Nick Lachey, just proposed to Vanessa Minnillo the week before… Anyway,  Simpson’s ring caught my eye and all it’s originality.  From celebrity jeweler, Neil Lane, the five carat three-stone ring features a central ruby, flanked by two pear- shaped diamonds. Despite rumors that Jessica herself, purchased the $100k ring, they both seem extremely happy.  And if she did… who cares?

All of today’s “rocks” are inspired by Jessica Simpson’s ruby engagement ring…
