You hear it all the time ~ make your wedding ‘your own’. Fill it with your own personality! You also hear that the invitations set the tone. Well … I beg to differ. What we are seeing time and time again is that if you want to get a true glimpse into the personalities of the future Mr & Mrs ~ take a look at their engagement shoot! Kristin Vining ~ photographer extraordinaire ~ is the master when it comes to discovering the “true you”!

We have 4 pretty  P E R F E C T examples for you today!

First up … Erica & Brandon. They are planning their May 2011 wedding in Boone, North Carolina ~ along with the help of Lindsey & Tiffany at Weddings & The City and, of course, Kristin. They are really, just too cute for words! Take a look at their entire beautiful autumn engagement shoot on Kristin’s blog!
