Winter Holiday Table Inspiration

If you are anything like me this week, you are knee deep in a to-do list of holiday happenings, and whipping up a pretty table just so happens to be on the top of that list. Well, Lauren Field Design is swooping in to save our tablescapes with this winter beauty. Overflowing with gorgeous textures and lovely neutrals, these images from Moondance Photography define winter table perfection.

From Lauren Field DesignThis table by Moondance Photography and Lauren Field Design shows the beauty of an atypical winter holiday color palette with elegant soft neutrals and simple details for impromptu winter get-togethers or Christmas celebrations. Simple geometric place settings paired with knit layers bring warmth to everyday dinnerware classics. The touches of metallic from the copper mugs, two-tone flatware, and the mirror add shine to the ecru layers of texture. Delicate foliage provides a soft hint of color in white shapely vessels .The dessert tops off the table with a chic modern take on the French Mont Blanc confection.

Elegant Kansas City Wedding

There is a reason that elegance has long reigned popular in the wedding world; it never, ever fails. And this beautiful celebration overlooking Kansas City just reinforces that once more. Something Gold Photography captured every stunning detail of this soiree, from the blushing bride to the cutting of one chic cake. If you ever need a reminder that classic elegance is queen, this gallery is where it’s at.


From The Bride…. Bryan and I met at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma. While Oklahoma is very special to us, Kansas City is where we fell in love and began our journey together. Bryan surprised me and popped the question on October 20th, 2013 by decorating my apartment with dozens of candles, roses, and pictures of us together. When I walked in after dinner with friends, he was standing in the candle light waiting for me. He asked, and I said yes!

Once we got engaged, we could not wait to plan our wedding. As the planning began, we knew that we wanted a classy, elegant wedding, but with an urban twist. The Terrace on Grand was perfect. It had everything we wanted…exposed brick, hardwoods, beautiful lighting, and a rooftop view of the city where we fell in love. As soon as we walked in I could envision us celebrating with our family and friends.

After we found our venue, everything else slowly fell into place. We knew navy and gray would be our colors from the very beginning. The colors combined with the luscious floral arrangements and bouquets were absolutely gorgeous. The atmosphere of the venue, along with the fun music and dance party absolutely reflected Bryan and I as a couple. We wanted our night to be classic and elegant, but with a laid back feel. We had the time of our lives with all of our favorite people surrounding us.

Romantic Missouri Engagement Sessions

This is what e-sessions are all about.  One adorable duo, a day spent frolicking through fields of flowers and a romantic kiss in the foggy weather.  Throw in the talented Jordan Brittley to capture every moment and it’s awesomeness times a million with some of the prettiest images you’ll ever see.  See them all here.

From the Bride… The scenery at Shaw Nature Reserve is unlike any other! We absolutely love the Missouri Botanical Garden, so when we visited Shaw for a festival for the first time, we loved it just as much (if not more)! What is so unique about Shaw is the effortless beauty – untouched wildflower fields, a gorgeous lake, and an old house with an amazing porch that overlooks it all. Add in the fog and soft light of the early morning sunrise, and it is even more magical. There is something very special about a place that has the ability to exert so many emotions in a person – it took all of our breaths away see the fields lit up so early in the morning, with no one else around.  Shaw Nature Reserve is calm, cozy, and sweet… we love it!

I loved the easy-going nature of the whole thing! Jordan encouraged us to just be ourselves and have fun! It is not every day you get to frolick through a field of flowers, shoe-less, with your favorite person (literally). We also loved cozying up together on the bridge over the lake, which was the last place we visited. It was the perfect way to end our time at Shaw!

You know what’s better than one fabulous engagement session from the talented Jordan Brittley?  Two fabulous engagement sessions.  A lovely wildflower + fog-filled day followed by this stunner of a shoot on the lake.  That’s right, TWO adorable duos and TWO galleries filled to the brim with heartwarming moments and a whole lot of pretty.  Check out even more right here.

From The Bride… We picked the lake for our engagement session, because it has been a huge part of our relationship. When I met Jake he was very into wakeboarding. He loved to show off his skills and take me out to the lake with him. For me that is why I fell in love with him, because he was this person I wanted to be. He was so adventurous and full of life! So we spent many days and nights during the earlier part of our relationship on the lake. We love to go to the lake often whether it be to sit on the dock and watch the sunset or go for an adventure and hammock. I feel like no matter what life throws at us when we end up at the lake life seems so peaceful.

Our favorite part of the shoot was being on the boat. I loved the lanterns even though I almost burnt myself (who would have thought they got so hot), but we got some good laughs. What I love most are the times with many smiles and laughter. Those are the times I remember.
