Artsy Christmas Styled Shoot With A Zebra! – Mae Small Photography

Hey hey pearlies!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.  I figured this flashback post was the perfect way to end the year.  🙂  Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year…enjoying those you hold most dear.  ❤ Original Post Below: Good morning Pearlies!  I LOVE Christmas! Looking at all of these awesome shoots makes me want to snuggle up with a blanket and hot chocolate.  There’s something so magical about Christmas time, and this styled shoot from Mae Small is a perfect example of Christmas magic!  We love the overall artsy feel and the natural palette with pops of red.  It’s just absolutely gorgeous!  We know you will agree, but read on and see for yourself! The featured couple is so cute and quirky and I think the bride’s headband is absolutely adorable!  Here comes more with the zebra! Such beautiful details!  Everything has a rustic meets vintage appeal and balances well with the youthfulness of the couple.   We hope you all enjoyed this post as much as we did!  Thanks to Mae Small …

At Home Holiday Engagement~ Josh and Tera

Morning Pearlies!  Hope you’re having a a great week…Before we head into our Christmas celebrations this weekend, I am doing some holiday flashbacks to end the week.  If you missed this one the first time around, I hope you get a chance to take it in today.  I loved this idea for an engagement session.  Although this year…there’s A LOT more snow on the ground this time of year.  lol!  Enjoy… Original Post Below: Sooooo….don’t you just love it, when it seems like keeping something simple ends up making it unique??  Well if you do, you’ll love today’s feature.  Josh and Tera opted to do an at home engagement session, and it really couldn’t have turned out any cuter in my opinion.  The couple incorporated so much of themselves just by…well…being themselves.  The session was taken around the holidays by our awesome (and very talented) friend Mel Klemz of Mel Klemz Photography, and the results were lovely.  You’ll see the couple was able to take a few photos outdoors due to the mild Indiana winter …

Winter Beauty Color Palette

Happy Monday Pearlies!  Today I wanted to do a continuation of winter color palettes!  I just love showing unexpected palettes around the seasons.  This one embraces colors in nature coming together to create a beautiful natural element to a cooler weather outdoor affair.  I love the use of wood, metal, and glass with just a touch of colors to brighten things up.  Hope it inspires all of you that have upcoming winter weddings to get out there, and make it all your own.   xoxo, Christina Vendors: Florals- Carrie Wilcox Floral Design/ Photography- Alexandra Tremaine Photography/ Event Planner- Kerri-Lynn Orsini with Stella Day Events/ Vintage Rentals- Borrowed, Vintage Rentals

Baby It’s Cold Outside Color Palette

Morning Pearlies!  And happy Friday!  It’s been a minute since I’ve done a color palette, and I figured I should continue on with the Christmas Spirit driving me around these days and dust off this oldie but goodie styled shoot from the PPB vault and make this off-the-beaten-path Christmas color palette…  Don’t just think the holiday’s means red and green.  Although there are a great use of those colors included in this gorgeous feature, there are also some awesome bright hues intertwined to make it one of a kind.  Be inspired…I know I am. Thanks again for tuning in today you guys!  See ya next week… xoxo, Christina Vendors: Photographer: Ron Delhaye | Ron Delhaye Studios/ Venue: Red Barn Experience, LaPorte, IN/ Stylist: Ashley Thunder Events/Florist: Thode Floral/Sweets & Desserts: Ashley Thunder Events/Cake: Uptown Cakery/Menswear: L.R.

Then Comes Marriage… Mountain High Real Wedding~ Jeremy and Jess

Good morning you guys! When this gorgeous wedding landed in the PPB inbox, my heart melted!  I just loved all of the beautiful nature mixed with the understated and classy details and decor this wedding had to offer, and knew right away it needed to be shared!  And beyond all of that, there were plenty of wedding details included from the lovely bride Jess! After meeting at a gym, Jess and Jeremy started a journey to love.  To propose to her, Jeremy surprised her with a holiday at Binna Burra when he came back from a 4 month overseas deployment.  He took her for a hike to a lookout and clearing over a mountain stream, and proposed on the rock ledge in front of the stunning view.  They celebrated with champagne and a delicious dinner at the mountaintop restaurant. As for wedding details… Jess chose her wedding gown at Belladonna Bridal in Brisbane. She was looking for really beautiful and intricate classic detailing but still wanted something she could dance and party in and feel comfortable …
