The last notes of summer are some of the dreamiest ones… The days that seem endless, as the sun beats down, and the air is warm and humid when night finally rolls in. The days where you could frolic through fields, or roam the sweet-filled paths at the summer fair. The ones that feel like a daydream that you never want to wake up from. Well, today’s editorial, featuring Minneapolis blogger, Tamara of Champagne and Macaroons, captures just that feeling!
Tamara shares A dreamy and hydrangea bloom-filled photo session inside the manicured gardens of the Landscape Arboretum is the perfect inspiration for any bride-to-be. When this dress arrived, I knew it was special and my dear friend and photographer, Russell Heeter, captured everything I love about it: the movement, the lace, the fit.
Let’s frolic through the fields, shall we?
HOLY SMOKES… That dress + that light! Tamara tells us I shared a behind the scene on my Instagram stories and had three brides ask me for the link immediately! That’s when it was confirmed that this dress was beyond stunning.
The Landscape Arboretum is such a special place + offers so many different backdrops for couples in love… Perfect for an engagement session or a wedding!
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention those strappy heels! They’re the Aviana Strappy Sandal by Sam Edelman.
It almost looks like a garden tucked away in Paris, definitely not in Minnesota…
That summer sun, hydrangea blooms, and that dress… Does it get any dreamier than this?
Tamara, thank you SO much for sending over this gorgeous inspo. We seriously cannot get over that dress!
So, if you’re loving the lacy number as much as us + decide to rent it for yourself — we’d love to see the photos in the comments below!!
