A puppy in a bowtie, and a Southern Belle on a swing?! Yes, please!

I can’t believe I haven’t shared these photos with you yet! Last year I spent an afternoon with gorgeous Ashley, modeling in a Bridal Session for me! I grew up with this gal, and oh my heavens she is beautiful! Thank you SO much for modeling! The shoot took place at the Barn at Chestnut Hill, and sweet Leigh, of Leigh Pearce Weddings helped me cook up this goodness, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Before the shoot, I took Ashley to meet up with Carla White Hair & Makeup, for her amazing skills! We also have to thank Traditions By Anna, in Raleigh NC for the dresses, as well as Sami at Just Priceless for the beautiful bouquet!  I couldn’t do this post without mentioning Ryan of Pecan Pie Puppies for the collar. Y’all seriously go to their Etsy shop, I promise you will find the perfect collar for your sweet pup.   Last, but not least  thanks to my wonderful Ben for managing our at the time sweet (crazy 6 mo. old) little pup Emma, who is dressed up as a boy in the photo! If you all know me, you know I just LOVE this dog!

Luckily enough, my favorite shot was used in my ad for Southern Weddings. Ladies, if you have not checked out this magazine, your planning just won’t be complete without it, I promise! You can order a copy of Southern Weddings V5  here! 

So take a look through these images, and just think of that warm weather!(: It’s is much better than the 36 degree weather I just walked Emma in a few minutes ago!
