Rocky Mountain Engagement Inspiration

This engagement session was about capturing intimate moments between the couple and the romance of being engaged. Set in the garden of a private estate, we styled a dessert and champagne picnic complete with mini donuts and fine libations. The bride, Ciana, brought a copy of Shakespeare's complete works, which was something the couple had bonded over while dating. Her dress from BHLDN kept with the romantic theme, with its flowing shape. A loose garden bouquet by MJM Designs featured ranunculus and scabiosa. And an old ski lift that sits in the garden made for a fun photo op and nodded to the outdoorsy nature of the couple.
