It poured on Rhett + Brandee’s wedding day (outdoor wedding and all). It turned out beautifully, but still: rain is rain. So when their one-year anniversary rolled around (congrats guys!) Brandee chatted with Carolynn Seibert Photography about a shoot that was all sunshine and love. And that’s about all they needed, we think.
They used Brandee’s wedding bouquet in the shoot to represent the year that had past.
Carolynn had it pretty easy creating love-filled photos for these two: That was not hard to do since these two are even more in love than they were one year ago when they got married, they just exude love all over the place! It was beautiful to be around
The only props were a blanket made by Brandee’s great aunt, an Anthro throw, and the wedding bouquet.
Brandee told Carolynn that she wanted the pics to just scream love. If a photo could shout…
The inspiration behind the shoot, as told by Brandee, We wanted to just hang out in a field and have Carolynn take pictures that weren’t extremely posed. I really love raw and authentic pictures where you aren’t always in the perfect “pose” but you can just feel the love. We danced, laughed, and acted crazy in the most beautiful fields. Overall, we just wanted some photos that showed how much in love we still are, how much we have grown in the last year, and how excited we are to be together for the rest of our lives. And I’m forever thankful to Carolynn for capturing that for us.
Thanks to Carolynn Seibert Photography for sharing these lovely images with us!

Priscilla of Orangerie Events had a sweet and simple mission: to capture the sheer joy of a wedding day. With pastel details, a rustic venue, and a couple X’s and O’s, the team whipped up a charming scene, photographed by Robyn Van Dyke Photography.
Priscilla says, The pastel color palette with blush and mint undertones brought a playful feel to the shoot, carried even further through the X and O details, colorful desserts, and confetti. The sun worked in our favor to illuminate each color and bring out the bit of sparkle incorporated.
To add a non-traditional element, they chose this textured, cream-colored dress and a cheerful bouquet by Brides and Bouquets.
These florals are just so right.
You gotta hand it to a team that can pull off an epic confetti shot!
From Priscilla: The collaboration of an amazing group of vendors with a bit of real love and perfect weather created this gorgeous set of photos.

When an event designer plans her own engagement party, you know it’s gonna be good. When she goes with a Parisian theme and whips up delish desserts to go along with it, you know it’s really good. And of course, that’s just what happened in this chic bistro-style party shot by Katie Pritchard Photography.
Now for the bride-to-be + party planner: Samantha of Samantha Dapper Event Design recently got engaged, so naturally her impulse was to host a sweet get together to celebrate…
My fiancé and I both love Parisian culture and as soon as the theme was decided I started thinking of ideas that were a nod to the culture, without being too over the top, sort of a bistro-chic style. The party was held in my parents beautiful backyard. I had black and white stripe runners made for the tables and hand painted all of the signage, dessert backdrop and gold vessels for the flowers. The flowers! Shindig Chic is so incredible. The garland that hung on the cabana made my heart happy!
Samantha revamped some vintage pieces to throw into the Parisian mix.
That’s sure one beauty of a sparkler!
Heywood Gourmet Grilled Cheese, muddled lemonade, and croissants for the guests to take home…
Samantha says, One of my favorite things was seeing everyone sitting at the cafe tables all in a row, it was exactly the bistro feel I wanted. I really hoped the party would reflect our style and personality and most importantly, that our guests had a great time. Cheers!
