Fall Photo Shoot
I am so excited to post these pictures of a mock wedding shoot we did this week in honor of Thanksgiving and all things Fall! Events by Shelbi Rene collaborated with Three by the Quill Pen and EE Photography to show our autumn brides just how elegant an Autumn wedding can be. From the very beginning we knew we wanted to create an outdoor atmosphere amidst a pure autumn setting.

Both David and Julie are from Scottish descent and chose to recognize their heritages during the ceremony with scarves from their clans to represent the joining [...]

With all the love I give to Etsy you would think I’m [...]
Happy Halloween!
I have been itching to host a Halloween party for years but it has just never been the right time. Last week (a week before Halloween) I finally decided to bite the bullet, live in the moment and just do it! I’m so glad I did so that now I can actually share my own Halloween party but I think next time my husband would appreciate it if I made up my mind more than a week before the party!I wanted the theme to work for a Halloween party but also for a Fall or Thanksgiving party since Halloween would [...]
