Engagement sesh: Patricia + Eugene

Categories   Engagements

Lydia sent this pretty pretty engagement shoot over. A swing! How lovely. Eugene is a friend of Lydia’s from college and she was tickled to be invited by his fiance, Patricia, to style them up for their shoot.

A few weeks before the shoot, Adrienne and Lydia staked out a sturdy tree in Griffith Park and then Adrienne asked a friend to help build the swing. The flowers came from the LA Flower mart. Perfectly soft and dreamy, just as Patricia requested.

For a wedding ceremony, the price on flowers will probably be for the bouquets carried by the bride, her maids, corsages carried by mothers of both the bride and groom and the boutonnieres carried by the groom and groomsmen. Cost Of wedding

lovely post! i love that swing...holy cow...

lydia {ever ours} on Jan 13, 2011

thanks for all the sweet comments. we're excited to be on here and hope that the swing sparks some ideas! the dress is from express and it's called "crossover pleated chiffon dress". it's from last season and i checked express's site and it's on sale, but only available in one color and on size. but i'm sure if you have online shopping skills, you could probably find it! hope that helps. thanks again for featuring this, amanda, jillian and kristina!

Patricia on Jan 13, 2011

thanks 100 layer cake for featuring us on your blogsite! eugene and i feel honored! big thanks to lydia for styling our shoot and to adrienne for capturing these wonderful photos! lydia is correct! the dress is from Express ~ i spotted it like 2 months before the shoot and instantly fell in love with it. not sure if anybody would be interested in buying my dress from me. i only wore it once for the shoot and it's in mint condition! :)

Here's a link to an ebay auction with the dress, size 8--not my size or I would scoop it up! http://cgi.ebay.com/EXPRESS-PLEATED-CHIFFON-STRAPLESS-DRESS-8-/190490065336?pt=US_CSA_WC_Dresses&hash=item2c5a17b9b8#ht_583wt_78 (Not my auction, either!)
