Wes Anderson Inspired Engagement Photos

wes anderson engagement

Jessie + David met through friends two years ago. What started with a single handwritten letter has since blossomed into a loving relationship filled with lots of adventure and exploration. For their engagement session with Alyssa Shrock, Jessie + David wanted to convey their sense of inquisitiveness + affection for each other, so they set out to explore in the woods bordering the beautiful Floridian coastline. They took polaroids of one another, read books on a picnic blanket together, and finally made their way to the beach…

Los Angeles Industrial Wedding: Kari + Jaime

Industrial LA wedding

From the get-go, Kari + Jaime wanted to make sure their industrial LA wedding would be a super fun party, filled with lots of little details that were reflective of their life together! After a gorgeous ceremony underneath a vine-covered canopy, guests showered the newlyweds with confetti (as a nod to one of Jaime’s family traditions) and then feasted on dinner from two of the couple’s favorite food trucks. With the help of family and friends, Kari + Jaime were able to handcraft almost every single design element, giving the celebration a meaningful + personal feel. Here’s a bit more from Kari about all the love that went into their day:

My brother and I (but mostly my brother!) made the LOVE marquee signs out of foam board and poster board. My sisters made the menu, Instagram sign, photobooth and props. All the rest of the paper goods were designed by me and printed at my work! My mother-in-law was so sweet to make me the loveliest veil I have ever seen. My mom baked her amazing homemade cookies to serve with the coffee and potted beautiful succulent arrangements to compliment the venue. In short, the inspiration was that everything had to be connected to our life and to our family and friends.

Thanks so much to Chaffin Cade Photography for sending this fun wedding our way and big congrats to Kari + Jaime!

Kari: Seeing my husband's face as I was walking down the aisle. His face was so full of emotion; I’ll never forget that moment.

Jaime: Waiting at the altar for Kari to arrive and being absolutely consumed by nerves and emotions.

When it came to the favors, we wanted to give our guests something they could use and something we love. There’s this game we love playing called Michigan Rummy. It’s a family game my grandma taught me — and in turn, I taught Jaime and his family. Every time we have family gatherings we end up playing. Jaime took the time to write out the rules of the game and we gifted guests with a deck of cards with the rules to play!

It’s so easy to get really wrapped up in what your wedding is going to look like, or what other people will think. I was really scared to have a food truck wedding –thinking about my guests waiting in line for food made me feel terrible! Just remember to relax and stick with your gut. In the end it’s about you and your fiancé; make the day reflect you and enjoy!

Living Room Fort Engagement Photos

living room fort engagement

Devin + Adam are a fun-loving couple who wanted their engagement photos to reflect their carefree + playful personalities. When their photographer, Alissa Saylor, heard the story of how Adam proposed, she knew right away that she wanted to build their sweet, living room fort engagement session around their fun + romantic story. And here it is…get ready to swoon! :)

Devin and Adam live in Asheville, NC. They love building sheet forts in their living room. Regularly you can find them cuddled up in their little fort, watching movies, and eating indian food. Last Christmas, after coming home from a family get together, Adam built Devin a fort so they could open their gifts from each other in it. In the very bottom of her stocking Devin found her engagement ring that Adam had designed himself. The gold of his mother and her mother’s rings were melted down together to create her engagement ring that was so perfect and unique! The diamond in the center is also from her mother’s ring.

So sweet, right?! And these photos are such a perfect way to remember such a special time in their lives…
