Part I – Garden Estate Styled Shoot – Featured on Style Me Pretty! ♥

I love this gorgeous styled shoot we did with THE dream team! Taken By Sarah is one of my favorite collab partners and we pulled together a great group of businesses for this shoot! With a real couple, Angela + CR of This Gathered Nest, they had not only their encouraging story to share but a need for a wedding do-over! (As all us married-broke-and-young-and-now-live-in-the-Pinterest-age feel so often! 😉 )

Enjoy the prettiness – and visit Style Me Pretty for the feature!

A little note from the beautiful bride,

Some say young love won’t last, that you need to find yourself before you can truly love someone else. But for us, we found love at a young age, and that love grew up together. We met in middle school, and on that day at a mere 13 years old, CR told his best friend that he’d found the girl he was going to marry. At the ripe age of 20 he proposed, and though we had no money for a big fancy wedding, we had more love than one could dream of. My grandparents were our inspiration, they had married at 16 and 19, and were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. They gave us their original rings from 50 years ago, and we all celebrated the lifetime of love they shared, and our wedding on the same beautiful day at a small plantation in Georgia.

We are approaching a decade of marriage, 4 beautiful children, and a hope for the same lasting love my grandparents found. It was wonderful to have a second chance wedding that we could have only dreamed of, and knowing that we would marry each other all over again, with an even stronger love and commitment than we did so many years ago…
