If you’ve been scrolling through Instagram lately, there’s a good chance that you’ll recognize today’s lovely lady, Jamie! Miss Jamie Kidd is a full-time fashion blogger, while her fiancé, Blake, is the photographer that captures her many outfits + epic adventures.
So, for their engagement shoot, we weren’t surprised when the creative duo came up with this gorgeous setting + styling. Jamie teamed up with Perfectly Poised Events to collaborate on the session with Morgan McCanne Photo. And they found one GORGEOUS space!
Hidden in the hills of Santa Barbara is Knapp’s Castle…
It was all about the wild florals + bell sleeves for their session. Playing off the boho-inspired vibes, Idlewild Floral crafted this autumnal-hued bouquet with a sprinkling of dried florals.
Those soft gold tones and peach pastels… All the florals were reminiscent of the dreamy California fall day.
How incredible is Jamie’s Spell Designs gown?!
HOLY SMOKES!! Blake shares: Sometimes you will encounter a moment in time that is so perfect that you wish you could stay in that moment forever. One of those moments for me was the day I met Jamie. The fact that we even met is a miracle in itself; so many things had to go exactly the way they did for us to cross paths and it is something I think about often. Was it luck? Was it fate? Was it the universe working its magic to push us together? Whatever it was, I will be forever thankful. All it took was one smile; Jamie ran past me and looked back at me with this infectious smile, this intriguing smile, this smile that would have haunted me had I not followed and made sure I got to know the woman behind it. I knew from the day that I had met Jamie, that no matter what happened in my life, I wanted her to be a part of it. A year later, on the same day that we had met, I proposed to Jamie and she said ‘Yes’.
Such a goddess!! Lacey, the owner of 805 Makeup, created a makeup look to reflect the romantic and whimsical engagement theme and Jamie’s natural beauty with a bronzed palette and subtle highlights.
As for Blake, he looked sharp in his navy blue contemporary suit from ASOS.
You two… Just wow. Congratulations J+B, we can’t wait to see what you plan for your wedding day!!
