From the Bride… Grant and I met at a block party hours after I moved to Philadelphia. As a group of us talked and got to know each other, I mentioned my living situation. It was temporary at the time so I eagerly asked if anyone knew of any potential roommates or apartments. Grant, with a sly smile, quickly responded that he was looking for a roommate. I couldn’t quite tell if he was joking, or if he just put me in the “friend zone.” As he elaborated on the details of his studio apartment, I realized that he might be into me.
Well, fast forward a year and a half, and we became roommates after all.
During a vacation in the Willamette Valley, I quickly obliged when Grant suggested a pit stop at White Rose Estate for wine tasting. Since it was a Monday afternoon, we had the whole place to ourselves, and the owner offered to give us a tour of the grounds. When he left us alone in the wine cellar, my goal was to get an awesome selfie, but Grant had other plans. I was shocked when he fell to one knee!
Soon after, we decided we wanted to share this special place with all our friends and family and started planning our destination wedding in the Willamette Valley.
Engagement pictures were really important to me. So important that we booked Sweetlife Photography before our venue! For the shoot, we returned to White Rose Estate.
As a wardrobe stylist for wedding events, I was beyond excited to style our shoot! I’m a little bit of a flower child, while Grant has an All-American look. A crisp white and washed blue color palette balanced our looks. Grant stayed true to his classic style with a white seersucker shirt, linen shorts, a woven belt and Sperrys. I love a little white dress, and found this effortlessly chic frock from Show Me Your Mumu. I wore gold gladiator sandals and simple gold jewelry, including gold bracelets handed down from my mom’s mom and my dad’s mom. In Philadelphia, I don’t get many opportunities to wear flowers in my hair, so a flower crown was at the top of my list. Our florist made the most beautiful flower crown with white roses to tie it all together.
