A look into our love nest

Max and I got our engagement pictures back from the incredible Rachel and Noah Ray over the weekend and we couldn’t be happier! We’re not really “engagement picture people” but we decided to have them taken so that we would have some photos to use for our save the dates, wedding website etc. and we are so glad that we did! I’ll be sharing the full story and some of our favorites soon, so stay tuned.

We really wanted these photos to capture this moment in our lives, in our home, and some of our favorite spots around town. We started by taking some pictures in our loft with our pug pup Bruce and while we were there Rachel and Noah snapped some photos around our space. They captured so many details that I just love! Our home is a mix of pieces handed down from our families and random eclectic touches. A collection of turkish and kilm rugs from Max's mom adds amazing color and pattern to our space. The gallery wall in our dining area is made up of both random and meaningful things - a black and white photo of my dad's childhood baseball team, an illustration from me and Max's song, and the praying hands painting just like the one that hung in my grandmother's dining room. I love plants and have them everywhere. They bring life to a space and freshen the air! These little cactus sit on a vintage wicker cabinet that I found on the side of the road. Max was skeptical at first but now he loves it - it's so retro! Our wall of frames is always a big hit... or a big miss - we've gotten lots of compliments but a few "did someone steal your artwork?" too. That's okay, we like a little quirkiness. 

These are a few of my favorites from around our loft. I hope you love it as much as we do!
