Handmade & Homegrown

This clutch was a gem I found at the Vintage Handmade Market in Charlotte a month or two ago.  The muslin salt sack originates from the 1940's, while the striped fabric is from the 1960's.  It was proudly made in the great state of North Carolina by Hawks & Doves.  Check out their Etsy page!

Also, I'm going to go ahead and spill the beans by saying that Soulstitches blog gained a partnership this past week :) Hope to be announcing who it is very shortly!!

Thanks for stopping by :)

2015: The Year of Mr. & Mrs. Thompson

Do most of my posts start with the statement "better late than never"? Cause I feel like they do.  This post has been a long time coming, but after I had already waited so long after our engagement shoot session I figured I might as well wait til 2015.  

Where: Asheville, NC
Hair & Makeup: @beautybycort

I set myself up for having a lot of anxiety about this photo shoot by writing this article on What to Wear for Your Engagement Photos before I was engaged.... long before.  I felt like I was dressing for Summer and he was dressing for Fall, but I think (I hope) the colors we chose made us look cohesive.
And I was happy to take my own advice on bringing a prop.... the dog & the bouquet I made in a hurry.

Also, I tried to narrow it down to 5 for the post, but I just couldn't.

 Him: Levi's Shirt/Wrangler Jeans/Lucchese boots

 Her: Dress & Bracelet from Anthropologie/ Frye booties/ Necklace from Vidalia Vogue on Etsy

My hair! Did Cortney do a beautiful job, or what?!  Waylon and Austin look handsome, as always.

Both Frye booties I wore in this shoot are ones I picked from this very lucky occurrence.

 Him: J. Crew vest/ DL 1961 shirt/ Lucchese boots/ Belt buckle from Waylon Jennings Merch Co.
Her: Dress & Bracelet from Anthropologie/ Frye booties/ Necklace from Elementality - Asheville, NC

 This is might be my favorite.

No, this one is definitely my favorite.  My version of American Gothic was executed beautifully.
Thanks for running the pitchfork out in a hurry and being a stand-in stylist [requesting Austin to roll up his jeans for this last one], Mom!

We were using truck headlights for light at this point.

That's all she wrote, folks! Thanks for being interested in this special, special moment in my life.   God has truly blessed me with my forever friend.
