Real Engagement: Brittany and Brandon

We are so excited to be planning Brittany and Brandon wedding! They are such a cute and fun couple who's engagement story is absolutely priceless!

Brittany and Brandon have actually known each other since daycare but it wasn't until college that sparks began to fly between these two. Brittany first caught Brandon's eye in high school and he asked her out. At the time she thought her friend would be a better match for Brandon so she set him up with her friend instead, but we all know that wasn't what was meant to be. After Brittany starting college at USC, she and Brandon started hanging out a bit more. The following March, Brandon mustered up the courage to ask Brittany out once again. This time she decided to give him a chance and their love story began!

As their relationship blossomed and talk of marriage began, Brittany joked with Brandon that he was too scared to ask her father's permission to marry her. She also teased that his proposal would be really obvious because their dates were never "outside of the box." Little did Brittany know that Brandon had something up his sleeve.

On October 16, 2009, the couple went to dinner in the Vista(per usual). After dinner Brandon decided they should take a walk through the State House grounds since he had never been there before and Brittany use to work there. Brittany gave him the grand tour, and on the way back to the car Brandon asked her if she was mad that he hadn't talked to her dad about marrying her. She promised she wasn't mad, but teased that he'd have to talk to him sometime! Suddenly, Brandon grabbed Brittany's hand, got down on one knee and said, "so you wouldn't be too mad if I did this..." and he asked her to marry him right then and there! ( And he had her father's permission of course!)

Brittany and Brandon are tying the knot on August 6th. We're so excited for their big day!

Hello Gorgeous...

We have been anticipating this week, not only because of Valentine's Day, but also because of the big unveil of a new bridal line. Anthropologie launched their new bridal line, BHLDN, yesterday and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. It definitely has the Sweetgrass Social stamp of approval. How could it not with these gowns......

....and these bridesmaid's dresses...

...and did we mention amazing accessories!?

Do you want to know my favorite part? The hair pieces! I'm a sucker for feathers and a dramatic piece that makes a girl stand out.

We're thrilled to finally see the line and we welcome it with open arms! Can't wait to see one of our beautiful brides wearing one of these beautiful frocks.

Tell us what you think. Would you wear something from the new line?

Be Mine....

First of all, Happy Valentine's Day y'all! Obviously we LOVE this holiday. How could we not? We're in the business of love, and our job is to create celebrations of people's love stories. Well for this Valentine's day, we wanted to share some sweet love filled moments from some of those celebrations....

We can't help, but swoon over these images, and are thankful that we were able to be a part of each of these celebrations. It reminds us of what is truly important in life. As the Beatles so elegantly put it many years ago, all you need is LOVE....

Sending you lots of love from the Girls of Sweetgrass Social on this Valentine's Day!

Real Engagement: Adrienne and Jon

Adrienne and Jon are one of our newest couples here at Sweetgrass Social and we couldn't be happier to be working with them! We absolutely love their engagement story and had to share it with you!

Adrienne and Jon met in pharmacy school back in 2007, but it wasn't until September of 2008, after being study buddies for a while, that their romance began to bloom. The couple dated for two years before Jon finally popped the question.

On Thursday, October 7, 2010, Jon surprised Adrienne by taking her to Hodges Family Farm to pick out a pumpkin because she had never been to a pumpkin patch before. Adrienne was very excited about this and, much to Jon's dismay took her time finding the perfect pumpkin! So, finally, after unintentionally making Jon sweat for an hour or two, Adrienne found a suitable pumpkin. Jon took her hand and got down on one knee in the middle of the pumpkin patch. He said, "I love you. Will you be my wife and stay with me forever?" Through a mixture of giggles and happy tears, Adrienne said yes and the rest is history!

Adrienne and Jon are getting married on October 16th! We're so excited to continue working with them to create their perfect wedding! Congratulations, Adrienne and Jon!
