When your sister happens to be the talented planner behind 6Pence Wedding & Design, it pretty much goes without saying that she will style your engagement shoot.  Because that’s what oh-so-amazing sisters do.  And not only will she put together one seriously cute picnic in the park (complete with hot cocoa), she’ll infuse the entire day with special touches that are oh-so-you.  Add to the mix a bundle of beyond beautiful images by Mikaela Ruth Photography and this is one very lucky (+ VERY stunning) bride and groom-to-be.  See it all right here.

From Mikaela Ruth PhotographyI was incredibly honored to shoot this particular bride-to-be as she is the sister of a talented wedding planner and designer, Jaclyn of 6Pence. Being the wonderful sister that she is, Jaclyn stepped in and styled Stefani and Dave’s engagement shoot. There was rustic prettiness, a nod to the couple’s shared love of baseball (we shot at the baseball diamond where they play!) and Dave’s love for football, and there was plenty of warmth of the season. Their adorable new puppy Houston (named after Dave’s favourite football team, the Houston Texans) was also there! One of the many sweet details were the frozen whipped cream hearts that Jaclyn made for hot cocoa. I loved Stefani’s lacy white mini dress and is it just me, or is she a dead ringer for Jennifer Lawrence?!!
