our engagement photos

All photos by Juliana Aragon

Ben & I were engaged over a year, but took engagement photos less than a month before our big day. Getting engagement photos wasn’t something I thought we would do, but they came complimentary with the wedding package from our photographer. We’re so happy we got them taken at our home, so we can have photos of our cats and our beautiful Victorian house recorded for posterity.

I wore my most prized dress – a 1930s gown I found on ebay years ago for only $20. ┬áThe 1920s rhinestone headpiece was found at a Benicia antique store. ┬áBen is wearing a custom suit from Crown Tailor.

I was in full swing wedding prep when these photos were taken. Here’s a peek at what I had planned for the table numbers using vintage hand vases, my grandfather’s horsemen trophy, and more odds and ends.

    Aww! This is such a wonderful shoot! I love the record picture where each of you have a record, and they are wildly different!

    Congrats by the way! Can’t wait to see pictures from the big day!
