Pastorale Magazine

Pastorale

I am so excited to share this editorial shoot that I styled for Pastorale Magazine. Shot by Erin Marie Miller (of course) and modeled by the hauntingly beautiful Madalyn Knebel, these back to school looks are perfect even if you no longer have classes to attend. I still get excited about the start of the new fall season and a new year even though I haven’t been in school for five years. There is something so thrilling about a fresh start. Obviously, new clothes always get me pretty excited, but these looks that I pulled from V2V are taking away any sadness I had about the end of summer. Check out the full September issue and our entire editorial spread here.

Our Wedding Day: The Highlights

Bonnie and the Mermaids Wedding

I was pleasantly surprised that our wedding photos arrived so quickly. This day was an adrenaline rush. The amount of love I felt in that one day from everyone there was completely overwhelming yet completely perfect. Here are just some of the MANY photos of the best day.

Our friend, Hannah, made our beautiful rings. They have mermaid/fish scales engraved on the inside since she and Josh and I are all water people, and mine has the diamond from my mom’s engagement ring.

Since Josh proposed to me in a dinosaur costume, we had his sister do a reading of “A Lovely Love Story” by Edward Monkton, which features two dinos in love. We also had bronze dinosaurs and succulents on the bar, gummy dinosaur favors, and the guests threw these dino-shaped rainbow sprinkles during the recessional.
