Style Sessions: Our Engagement Photoshoot on the Beach

I’m so excited to share our engagement photoshoot on the beach! I had been looking forward to it for weeks! It was such a fun, easy and relaxed shoot and I was delighted with how the photos turned out. I wore one of my favorite dresses of all time, it’s from Free People (I love everything they have) and you may recognize it from this summer afternoon in Santa Monica last year. It has that perfect effortless, boho vibe and is just one of those dresses that make you feel great! Plus, the flattering cut suits all body shapes too.

I hope you enjoy seeing these special photos, I can’t wait to get them printed and framed for our wall at home. I’m also sharing the 25 best engagement photoshoot dresses, click through to see them below. Of course, they’re not just for brides-to-be, these dresses are perfect if you’re after an easy, breezy boho vibe dress for everyday life…

Friday Faves – The 7 Prettiest Semi Naked Drip Wedding Cakes

I’m well and truly in the midst of wedding planning right now (only 50 days to go!) and one fabulous thing to organize is of course, the cake! I’ve been scouting Pinterest for inspiration and there are some truly incredible creations… but with so many beautiful options, it gets a little confusing – I want them all! So that’s where I’d love your help… can you please help me decide? I love the effortless feel of semi naked drip wedding cakes, they are lively and fun. One of my colors is rose gold (wait til you see the invitations from Wedding Paper Diva’s – you can add metallic details to almost everything they have, I was in heaven!), so I’d love to incorporate the metallic rose gold element into the cake. I am thinking…

Option One: Semi naked drip wedding cake with white frosting sides and some metallic rose gold brushed details throughout. Then white drip over the top and finished with flowers, macaroons and other fun little treats.
Option Two: Semi naked drip wedding cake with all-white frosting sides and metallic rose gold drip over the top. Finished with flowers, macaroons and fun treats too.

Also, do you think topping the cake with soft blush pink flowers or bright pink flowers would be best? Please leave a comment and let me know your thought – I’d LOVE (and actually really need) your help! If you have any ideas on a creation, or a mix of the below, please comment and let em know.

If you’re after inspiration for your own birthday or special event… or just love looking at cakes (hello, who doesn’t?), I wanted to share some of the best semi naked drip wedding cakes I found on Pinterest, I think the addition of drips on the cake makes it even more fun too. Which wedding cake style do you like the most?
