Webb Wedding

So recently I read an article by the Huffington Post about "unplugged" weddings. Well, in perfect timing, I attended a wedding this past weekend (one more left this year!) and put this concept into play. Although we snapped a few pictures during the reception, they were off to the side and only of ourselves (vain?). Once the photographer posts pictures of the celebration, I will be happy to share.
But, for now, here are a few of us enjoying ourselves!

I talked my Mr. and future mother-in-law into spending one whole afternoon walking around the charming downtown of Charleston. With views of White Point Gardens, Rainbow Row, and insanely gorgeous architecture around every corner I hope they didn't mind too much. And I finally slipped on the pink tulle skirt I have been dying to wear!

XOXO,

Wednesday Pick-Me-Up


Oh, hey! How fun is this gold, Great Gatbsy-esque print?! I envision this framed above your bar cart--aren't you envisioning it too?

I am loving this week's print, especially with a good friend's wedding this Saturday. I am ready to celebrate their love with good wine and great company!

XOXO,

Angel Oak

While on vacation at Folly Beach/Charleston, the Mr. and I made a necessary trip just a few miles down some back roads to visit the Angel Oak. It is much more impressive up close and personal, and really the only thing you can do is stare up through the branches at the glittering light spilling through and bask in its endless shade..and snap 50-60 iPhone pictures like I did..

I really couldn't even capture the entire beauty in one photo.

While different websites and signs provide a wide array of age estimates, the gift shop located beside the tree listed the tree in excess of 400-500 years old. This live oak is an absolute must-see.

The Mr. and I enjoyed Restaurant Week and headed to downtown Charleston for dinner and a quick night tour of the town. I dug my crisp white Keds out of the depths of my closet for our little excursion and I fell in love with them all over again!

Wednesday Pick-Me-Up


Darling Cashmere

After just returning from a sunny weeklong getaway with my Mr. to the beach and the loveliest of downtowns in Charleston, getting back to the workflow has been a bit tough.

More than anything, though, remember to work hard and be nice. They must go hand-in-hand.
I have a little reminder framed on the credenza (is it weird that I call it that?) behind my desk with one of my favorite passages "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." Colossians 3:23-24

XOXO,

Off to Charleston!


Tomorrow we are headed to Folly Beach and Charleston for a post-Labor Day getaway for a whole week. A whole week! I can't even deal I am so excited. My summer has officially not ended and I have refused to give in to Starbuck's early arrival of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I am beyond ready to soak up the last rays of summer sun before I will let myself get excited for Fall!

What is even more special about this trip is that Joy Davis, our wedding photographer (remember?!), and her hubs and photog partner, Ryan, are meeting us to shoot our engagement session!

I have been constantly perusing Pinterest and Google for engagement session poses, ideas, locations, and even outfit inspiration. OCD much? Yes, I will be the first to admit it.

Here are some of my favorite shots--some of them actually in Charleston!
This one makes me wish we could bring our little pup, Prince Cashmere, with us for a few pictures!

I absolutely cannot wait for the session, to see the photos, and then to share them with you. So, of course, stay tuned! And check my social media (Instagram and Twitter) for updates on our trip!

For more of my engagement inspiration, check here!

XOXO,
R

Wednesday Pick-Me-Up


Today's pick-me-up was discovered on Pinterest, and I quickly became obsessed with the lovely Ashley Cooper's designs!

Always remember the simplest words of encouragement--that you are a child of God!

"For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith." Galatians 3:26

XOXO,

Emerald Romper

Emerald Romper on Darling Cashmere
The Mr. snapped these pictures merely seconds before a downpour while the wind was blowing my hair every which way. These were the only two salvageable shots!

Forever 21 Sunnies (Karen Walker splurges) // Gold Initial Necklace // Forever 21 Romper (love this one!) // Target Wedges (similar option)

We were headed to Wilkesboro to check out our wedding venue, explore downtown (all three blocks of it), and test out a possible rehearsal dinner spot. Although we were slightly disappointed with the restaurant, we still had a great time on date night!

XOXO,
R
