An official welcome to the Captured & Engaged blog! We are beyond thrilled to be featured today on Every Last Detail and finally be able to share the gorgeous images by LH Photography from the first engagement shoot of the Captured & Engaged giveaway series, “Home is Wherever I’m With You”.
It has been an incredible experience working alongside a team of artists that went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. Combining each of our talented efforts and passions, Ly Sue at LH Photography, Shannon and Jenna of The Busy Bee Events & Design, and Siuleth at Eleven Note set forth to bring a heartfelt vision to life – an inspired telling of a recently engaged couples’ love story through creative compositions designed, styled and captured in a way that expresses their unique love and meaningful ways of celebrating their engagement. It could not have been accomplished so beautifully without the amazing ideas and contributions of each vendor involved. Seth Dunlap films also created a breathtaking video of the engagement shoot which you can view on the ELD feature as well as read through an in-depth look at the incredible details that took shape that day.
The inspiration came from Eunice and Donovan’s sweet love for each other and their favorite date night activity – popcorn and a movie under a blanket fort in their living room. The Acre could not have been a more perfect setting to create a space that truly reflected their love for spending time together at home.
Meaningful details were intentionally incorporated into the design to bring their “home” to life in an inspirational way. Among them, gorgeous floral arrangements by Stems & Things , hand-painted Florida sign by Lovely Retro Renos adding more of the soft color palette into the space composed of eclectic vintage furniture from Wish Vintage Rentals. We could go on for days about all the hand-crafted whimsical and romantic details used to create such a light and airy backdrop for the couple’s session, but instead we will let the photos do the talking and in them you will see how much heart was poured into every design element of the interior, and styled moments intentionally placed to capture a story that is uniquely and beautifully Eunice and Donovan’s.
Can we just mention that while there may have been a group of people there working in the background as they opened and read their love letters, we are sure in that moment they felt out of the whole world, and it was just the two of them. Cue the sweetest kiss ever!
We cannot truly express just how wonderful and inspiring Eunice & Donovan are as a couple!! Seeing them interact so naturally with the space and surrounding details while also being so appreciative of the process during the session, really made each and every vendor there utterly grateful and honored to be a part of sharing and celebrating their engagement with them. Magical lighting and a music filled ambiance, sweet pastries by Two Sweets with a deliciously gorgeous cake by The Pastry Studio, lush greenery infused with fresh lemons, handwritten chalk sign by Chalkshop Events, and custom save the dates ready to be assembled with love, all setting the stage for an unforgettable celebration.
It is with great pleasure that we end this post on the sweetest note – Eunice & Donovan snuggled up under a white teepee accented by soft florals and unique dream catchers created by Eleven Note using quoted words from the love letters specifically written by the couple and read aloud earlier that day. The projection of stars, created by DJ Jacob Towe, on the teepee and surrounding walls created a perfectly magical finale for this session and styled shoot. What better way to mark the very moment and activity that makes their love story so special and so inspiring to other couples starting off on the same adventure, love and marriage. One that knows no bounds with a love that truly resides wherever they exist… “Home is Wherever I’m with You!”
