Summer Escape

This photo shoot has been by far, one of my favorites! For the upcoming summer weddings and engagement shoots, hopefully this post can give you some ideas!

If you’re a DIY gal like me, there are a ton of ways to make your shoots/weddings/parties more cost effective (plus it can be fun if you do a small get together for a little arts and crafts session!). I love the idea of having balloons and pretty tassels (so cute!) because they can add a fun whimsical feel to your event or shoot. I bought my own materials (tissue paper, string) from the dollar store and used this video for reference: You can find 16 inch balloons at a local party store or 36 inch balloons at some select stores (or online). And you won’t need to fill it up days before your event, just do it the morning of and you’re good to go! Instead of paying $30-60 for pre-made 36″ balloons with tassels attached, why not make your own for $10?

Anyway I’ve had this beautiful dress in my closet from Lulu’s  for over a year now, and never got a chance to wear it, so I’m happy I finally got to bring it out! I think it’s a perfect maxi for low key beach weddings and engagement shoots because of the romantic back and lace detail in the front. It’s such a simple silhouette, yet so stunning and flattering when you put it on!

Also if you didn’t notice, I am wearing this gorgeous head piece made by Nicole at Oh Dina! Millinery, and you can see that I’m a huge fan of her floral crowns via my instagram account! I had the pleasure of meeting Nicole a couple months ago, and since then I’ve been obsessing over her work! If you haven’t checked her out yet, I linked her website and etsy shop below. She also makes custom pieces geared for your special event, and I will definitely be sending in my requests for my future engagement shoot ❤



What is your favorite wedding DIY project? I would love to know!
