It’s Giveaway Time! – CLOSED 5/16

I am so excited to be doing this as I can relate so hard! I should’ve been getting married today, but the pandemic pushed it back. Totally okay, I’m excited for when I can get all my family and friends to come celebrate with us! With this said though, I woke up at the beginning of this week with an idea to share and spread the love to TWO deserving brides. I’m giving away TWO care packages for brides so they can feel a bit spoiled. This is an Instagram giveaway only, but this post is a bonus entry. All you have to do it comment on it, add your Instagram handle as well!

This post also gives you a look into what’s included in these packages! So here’s the list since not everything is pictured (dang Rona, slowing down shipping!)

Naturally I added in some items from local businesses I love, but I also grabbed items that I’ll just list without linking!

Good Luck!
  1. Each bride will be receiving a pair of earrings from Shani Amara. You’ll receive a statement pair and a delicate studded pair.
  2. Two bath bombs from L.A Suds, they are to die for!
  3. A stunning glitter pod from Shimmer Down.
  4. Bride and Groom koozies
  5. Mr & Mrs Passport holders and luggage tags
  6. Bridal games
  7. Mr & Mrs sign
  8. Guestbook frame
  9. Light up string clip lights
  10. “Bridal” flip flops
  11. An Essie nail polish…or two
  12. Face masks
  13. Ban.do tumbler
  14. Ban.do gym/travel bag
  15. The Knot wedding book
  16. A make up bag
  17. A “Bride” cup
  18. A notepad
  19. A notebook
  20. A pearled headband in white or pink
  21. Bling Ring Cleaner
  22. $30 Gift Card to Simple & Sentimental for each bride. I got my cake topper and plenty more from them and I’m OBSESSED!

Each box will have a combination of these items, but NOT ALL ITEMS LISTED!

I’m so excited to get these mailed out. Again as a reminder, this post is for a bonus giveaway entry, so just comment below with your Instagram handle! This giveaway ends on May 16, 2020 at 10pm.

Getting to Geraghty: Engagement Session Reveal

Getting to Geraghty: Engagement Session Reveal

Happy Wedding Wednesday! I’m so excited to share my engagement pictures with you all today. It was such an amazing day and our photographer was absolutely amazing. Every shot was stunning and made me reminisce back on the day over and over again.

We took our engagement pictures in Wilmington and were able plan two outfits. We decided to dress up for the look downtown and went casual for the beach. In each outfit, we still wanted to play off of a similar blue that will be a part of the wedding! I loved that we did it since it makes all of the pictures look cohesive.

I highly encourage you to make sure that you not only get along with your photographer, but that you LOVE their work. Something that drew us to Erin was the effortlessness in her photos. We didn’t want heavily edited photos that were blown out or moody- both which are beautiful, but not us. Not only did we love her style, but her personality was a true fit. She was laid back, joked with us, let us have a pit stop for beer (BIG WIN), and made us feel like we were in our own little world for a few hours! I have linked her below so you can check out more of her and her team’s work.

I plan to post about my prep for the day and additional details next week, but for now…here is a window into our engagement session with Erin Costa!

The weather was perfect, we couldn’t have asked for a better day! We took these photos mid-week on a Wednesday right before the Fall weather decided to visit NC. We chose both downtown Wilmington and Wrightsville beach as it’s where we spend most of our time when on the coast.

Dan and I have spent many nights walking the cobblestone streets and many days laying out in the sun on this sand. It was so important for us to take these pictures in the places we love since we are getting married away from home. We wanted to make sure that these photos were colored with our love and showed off what we call our “2nd home” here in NC. I think we accomplished both!

Picture overload? I just couldn’t help myself! I can’t wait to continue sharing more wedding updates with you guys. Always let me know if you have any suggestions for the series. See you next time!
