Am I the only one who feels the weeks speeding up as the holidays quickly approach? Sometimes there is just so much to do to get ready for the festivities that I can’t help but bury myself in the gorgeous parade of weddings we feature for you all week long. It’s so nice to have such a pretty retreat! Before we send you off into your busy – I’m sure – wedding-filled – I hope – weekends, we have just one more thing to share. A calm, beautiful North Dakota engagement session from Shawna Noel Photography. It’s the perfect springboard to the rest of your oh-so-beautiful weekend! We’ll meet you back here Monday morning with a whole new parade of pretty. xoxo
