As we face the grey weather and semi cold temps, we decided to post something to remind us of warm and wonderful days. So, if you are busy recovering from or planning for the holidays, here is a mini escape for you.
This summertime engagement shoot was documented by Sarah Botta Photography and features two German Shephard Husky mix pups, a stunning engagement ring and the background of open fields and soft grasses. The session was held at Hampton Mansion in Towson Maryland. Enjoy these images!
The couple went for a clean style. The guy wore clean button down long sleeve shirt with khaki short. Note there are no pockets/pleats so he has a more finished style. Her look was a large floral pattern dress that is full length and ties at the side. The dark tones and structure of the sun dress work well. As a second look, she wore a cotton a symmetric dress that is soft and casual feel. Her nails are painted the preferred color of British royalty- baby pink. She opted out of shoes and went for the romantic barefoot look.
We love the natural look of this shoot. It is not overly styled, but the clothing choices are finished enough to allow for a clean and professional look to the images. The pups were brought in to wear the save the date tags. We haven’t seen the wedding yet, but I am hoping the pups were part of it too. Dogs make everything better !
Thanks for checking out today’s post and come back soon to check out our next feature!
This wedding has a beautiful waterfront ceremony overlooking the Baltimore harbor and an industrial boho chic reception at the Frederick Douglass Museum in Baltimore. Feminine elements of swathes of greenery and florals of soft and light color tones in bohemian design added an earthy bohemian flair. The beautiful Baltimore wedding was photographed by Nikki Schell Photography.
Her dress was a beautiful champagne colored Jenny Yoo Gown. The gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline with embellished with beaded appliqué of english ivy and silk organza. The bodice was a fit and flare silhouette that complements the feminine modern bride. The bridesmaids wore an assortment of blush chiffon Jenny Yoo dresses that, some boasting a soft floral pattern. The bride had a Man-0f-Honor who wore a light grey suit with a blush bowtie to match the ladies.
The groom and his groomsmen went for a traditional black tie look. They all looked incredibly dapper in their property fitted suits.
The invitations are simple and clean. Torn edges and thick paper stock are the modern take on romantic bohemian style. The paper boasts a simple floral design and romantic oversized script font.
Their ceremony was absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful arch, the view of the Baltimore Harbor. The altar was composed of brass and wood, decorated with florals flanking both sides of the pointed arch. Wood chairs were placed along the pier creating an isle and lending to a farmhouse feel while overlooking the iconic Baltimore Inner Harbor. The couple wrote their own vows, which made every single person shed a tear.
The reception space is a mix of historic Baltimore and Industrial chic. The space boasts worn brick, exposed warehouse style ceilings and large windows that overlook Baltimore. The site was styled with hanging greens, long farm tables which were overflowing with greens and flowers. The color scheme was classic white. The texture comes in from the mixed florals and greenery and the historic industrial elements of the space.

History & Founder’s Story
With 25 years of experience in the beauty industry, Eunhee experienced a significant lack of natural wellness products on the market. Eunhee taught herself herbology and chemistry, with a focus on natural botanicals. This was driven by her sensitivity to products used in cosmetic and salon products and the knowledge that many products we use are toxic and creating more harm than healing. Through this process, she discovered a variety of natural botanicals that heal and rejuvenate the skin. Clients often asked about healing remedies for burns, bruises and other injuries to the skin. Eunhee was able to dramatically improve their healing with products that she had created for herself. She became passionate about sharing her knowledge and creations with others and, thus, established Solluni, a beauty line made with vegan, gluten free, cruelty free and organic ingredients. In 2018, Eunhee opened a salon, also called Solluni, which features all of Eunhee’s proprietary hair products in a toxic-free environment. Products are available for purchase in store and online.
