montana-ski-style-shoot-by-mackenzie-keough-photography-as-seen-in-smitten-magazine-001This engagement session set in the snowy Montana mountains completely made us swoon when it landed in our inbox – between the charming Mule Bar with refreshing hot toddies to share with your love, the snowy backdrop perfect for a playful snowball exchange, and hello – the utterly amazing floral ear muffs!! We think this is one of the most creative engagement sessions we have come across, and what a wonderful way to showcase your love of skiing and the fresh mountain air with your nearest and dearest.

Insights from Mackenzie on the inspiration behind this lovely engagement session:

The unique beauty that Montana winters have to offer is easy to be inspired by. The blue mountains, the snow adventures, and having to cuddle to stay warm. What could be better than going on a snowy adventure with your love and snuggling on the chair lift?

We couldn’t agree more Mackenzie!

crimea-russian-wedding-elopement-designed-by-jrweddings-smitten-mag-com_0657

We are #smittenwith the rise in elopements collecting in our inbox.  This new trend encompasses all of our favorite elements of a styled shoot with the true love and commitment of a wedding.  Of course a big dreamy wedding with lots of loved ones in attendance will never go out of style, consider a new idea, and maybe even save a little bit of money.  The reception is hands down the biggest expense of a wedding, so by eliminating it, you can splurge on photography, flowers, attire, and even location by starting your honeymoon with a breathtaking backdrop, like this elopement in Crimea, Russia overlooking the Black Sea.  After your return (and the pictures come back) host a casual house party with your friends and family to show off your beautiful images.  Now this is a vacation slideshow everyone will love.  If your elopement is going to break a few hearts, then bring a minimal amount of loved ones with you (like five or six on each side).  This is the perfect marriage between a variety of budget sizes and a super swoon/Pinterest worthy nuptial.

Brunch Wedding Ideas and Inspiration - Click Chic Photography  - smitten-mag.com_0604

The photographer, Click Chick, shares the inside scoop on this delicious brunch wedding inspiration.

We were inspired to create a brunch wedding design that incorporated our local bounty of blueberries in a fresh, bright, and whimsical way.  Ethereal florals by Heidi Inabinet of On a Limb Floral Designs used blueberries, blueberry branches, dahlias, thistle, roses, and vines. One of my favorite pieces she designed is a floral bowtie for the ring bearer. Heidi’s Summerville home was the perfect Southern location for our brunch wedding, with backyard chickens, fresh eggs, and a wraparound porch.  Fashion styling and makeup was by Chloe Fusselman of Top Knots & Polkadots and she found a perfect ivory lace fit and flare strapless gown at Fabulous Frocks and coordinating groom’s attire at Ike Behar. The coral jacket was a handsome and whimsical touch to the complete ensemble. Our couple’s children modeled as ring bearer and flower girl and wore Janie & Jack.Erika Kalinowski of Dulce Truck outdid herself with a full spread of brunch dessert delights, including mini blueberry pop tarts, cinnamon rolls, mini pancake stacks with blueberry syrup, blueberry iced tea, mini blueberry tarts, and a wedding cake covered in blueberries.  Handwritten watercolor invitations were by Studio Nine Company and brought in a modern touch and colors of blueberry blue, aqua, and peach. These colors complimented a full table spread from Polished and included antique glasses, china, and silver. A farm table and chairs and a bakers rack from Snyder events completed the look, along with a his and hers mimosa bar and croquet.
