Danielle and Ryan | Engagement Session Picnic at Authenticity Workshop
Late Fall Farm-to-table Inspired Brunch Picnic Engagement Session During Wedding Weekend at Emerson Fields, Excello, Missouri
Who says engagement sessions have to be photographed six or more months before the wedding? At the Authenticity Workshop we broke all of the rules and introduced a farm-to-table inspired brunch picnic engagement session for the bride and groom on the day before their wedding!
With a destination feel to their wedding day at Emerson Fields in Excello, Missouri, we wanted to create a weekend-long experience teeming with escape and relaxation for the pair to enjoy. Danielle and Ryan enjoyed a non-traditional engagement session that allowed them to sit back, sip a cocktail, and just enjoy the company of one another on their last day as an engaged couple. The anticipation of their vows the next day created a lovely atmosphere of intimacy between them that was easy to photograph. The spread surrounding the pair was full to the brim with the appearance of sophisticated abundance: including libations, a lovely styled picnic basket including the couple’s favorite wine, and all of their favorite hors d’oeuvres. Danielle and Ryan enjoyed not just a typical engagement session, but created a wonderful memory with one another that they can look back on and remember for generations.
