Inspired: Engagement Photos & a giveaway

Tyler & I had a blast shooting our first engagement photos with the lovely Jessica of Jessica Ranae Photography a couple of weekends ago. After getting our first scheduled shoot rained out, Nashville seriously delivered the gorgeous weather for our second attempt!
Our goal for engagement pictures was to capture us in our natural states. Nothing overly done, just us, loving each other, with gorgeous lighting, in a more rustic setting. The pictures above served as the inspiration for our shoot & you can see all of these photos & more ideas on my Wedding Pinterest board here.

We have gotten a sneak peek of the pictures from our photographer & I am obsessed!
This is one of our favorites from what we have seen so far... more to come soon!
Wedding planning is trucking right along & I am having a blast soaking up all the delicious inspiration from Pinterest, wedding blogs & the "real life" weddings that I have found on the internets.
Just this week I learned about the "NotWedding" on Ruffled & even won a pair of tickets to their upcoming event in Nashville!
The NotWedding is a bridal show alternative where "wedding guests" enjoy a ceremony, dinner & dance-party reception while experiencing fabulous wedding vendors in action!

Now NotWedding wants to give YOU a chance to attend too!
The NotWedding is giving away 5 pairs of tickets to any of their future events: New York, Cape Cod, Charleston, Atlanta, Nashville, Athens and Wichita. 
Just leave your name below and let us know which event you’d like to attend!

P.S. Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a $50 gift card to Lisa Leonard's fabulous shop {here}!!

P.P.S. Get your white tee looks together for the Real Girl Glam Link-up starting tomorrow!
