As a blog dedicated to all things wedding, it is a given that we lean towards posting real weddings filled with image after image of gorgeous inspiration for all of you soon to be brides and grooms to relish in and this week was no exception. But, we also happen to have a soft spot for adorable showers, style-savvy rehearsal dinners, even beautifully captured engagement shoots and when one as gorgeous as this shoot photographed by Studio Thisis falls in our laps, well, we just have to share...
