From Wedding to Home: Frames

Here I thought frames would be an incredibly unique idea for a wedding, but frames have jumped to the next level and become wall art in homes as well. I quite like the idea of a wall of frames, filled with pictures or not. It just goes to show that home decor can be just as unique as wedding decor, and when you are striving for a unique wedding, shouldn't your home fit your same tastes?? Well, here we go with another idea of how you can use your wedding decor as home decor after the fact. Save some money, freshen up your home, and take a green approach to your wedding!

I happen to be an extreme fan of chalkboards, engagement shoot props, and unique wedding ideas-well, here you have all of the above wrapped into one pretty package! Have fun with these on your wedding day, engagement shoot, etc.  You can hang them in your home after the wedding to remind you of all that your day meant.

How are you going green and reducing the waste from your wedding?? Is any of your wedding decor going to find a pretty spot in your home afterward??

Speaking of Engagement Sessions...

Today let's talk about engagement shoots! I love these shoots as it is a candid way for a couple to capture fun moments of the two of them. There are so many ways to make this shoot interesting, creative and fun. Wardrobe, location and props can play a major part in this shoot and the end result. With a quick wardrobe change, you are suddenly creating a whole different style of photo. Change the scenery and the composition of the space will be different, allowing you to change up the feel of the shoot, go from flirty to romantic, to editorial. Oh and props! This is the easiest and my far the most fun way to change up the shoot! Literally anything can be a prop. This is a way to incorporate fun things to your engagement shoot, but can also be a way to add something that is meaningful to the two of you!

I'm obsessed with each and everyone of these photos

I am going to do mine shortly and I am trying to figure out what props, wardrobe and locations to use! I want a really awesome engagement shoot that really expresses us as a couple. I want ample outfits and lots of fun locations! Anyone have location suggestions in the Bay Area??

One idea I had was a restaurant in Napa called Brix. They have vineyards, fountains, lounge seating areas, inside bar, and railroad tracks. I could definitely get all the different "locations" all in one place there! What are your engagement shoot plans??

More fabulous engagement shoot ideas coming up later today!
