It’s technically Friday for most of us and an extra long weekend with it being Easter.  There are no Easter eggs in this engagement shoot, but there is a little bit of ice cream and a little bit of travel.  Two of my most favorite things!  This super cute engagement session was captured by the lovely Allie Lindsey Photography  at Peltzer Farms in Temecula, California, and was put together by Little Lover Events.  After reading this couples proposal you can really see that they tried to incorporated what they enjoy doing together and let it shine through in photos.

The Proposal

Lindsay and Ryan, along with their two friends Robert and Laura, drove up to Northern California for their friends Josh and Laura’s wedding.  After a stop in Yosemite and partying in Sacramento, Robert and Laura flew back to LA, and Ryan and Lindsay continued their road trip to Napa for a couple days.  With wine tasting planned for the following day and a reservation for the French Laundry that night (under the guise of our ten year anniversary), Napa was destined to be a great vacation spot regardless.

With the ring burning a hole in his suitcase since he left for Yosemite, Ryan knew he wanted to propose as soon as the timing was right.  We checked into the hotel in Napa where Lindsay expected that a nap was imminent.  To Lindsay’s surprise, Ryan handed her a wrapped present instead–what he claimed was a 10 year anniversary present!  Lindsay unwrapped a photo album which was filled with pictures–one from each city she and Ryan had traveled to over the past ten years.  We looked through the album together reminiscing about each trip.

At the end, Ryan put the album aside and in his mind (although who knows exactly how it came out!) said the following: “Lindsay, we’ve had so many great adventures together, and I can’t wait to fill the rest of this album up with so many more.  I want you to know that I love you, and that I’ll love you forever.”  He then got down on one knee, pulled the ring from his pocket, and slid (or tried to slide) it onto her finger, where it rested firmly above her knuckle.  Luckily, Lindsay said yes despite the measurement malfunction, and the rest as they say is history!

We are really excited to be adding two new invitation suites to our downloads section! They are exclusive to Love & Lavender and were provided by the fabulous ladies over at Merrymint Design.

This first up is a bright and cheery wedding invite that goes by the name Argyle.  This invite would be perfect for a wedding with a yellow and gray color scheme like the real wedding I featured the other day.  Check it out! This is the new Argyle Invitation with RSVP card, download it over here!


The second inviation design is the Rustic Country invitation suite, also provided to L&L by Merrymint Design. Barn weddings are super popular lately, so this invite suite will be a perfect match for all those rustic brides out there looking for a simplistic style such as this rustic country invite.


Another huge update is the user friendly invitation creation template that will slowly be showing up throughout all our awesome invitations.  No more downloading PDFs, PNGs, or font types.  Simply add your wedding information in the boxes, press “create”  and voila your invitation will be created!   Of course, if you prefer the PDF/PNG format, then we will keep that up for you too.

We have only done 3 so far so bare with us as we slowly transfer them all.  We would love your feedback on the new template box.  If you have any comment, ideas, concerns, we are all ears and would love to hear from you!
