This mountain picnic engagement shoot, captured by Sara Lynn and designed by The Styled Soiree, was inspired by Blaine and Ciana, a fun, outdoor-loving couple. It was important to make sure that the romance of being engaged was the highlight of the shoot. An intimate picnic of desserts and champagne set in the garden of a private estate was serene and personal. Wanting to keep the tone of a celebration from the moment their guests learned of the wedding, the Save-the-Dates were cocktail napkins, tucked into heirloom boxes with a bottle of champagne. Ciana brought a copy of Shakespeare's complete works, something they had bonded over while dating. She also chose a romantic, flowing dress to keep with the theme of mountain elegance which touched on the gorgeous color palette of the bouquet and picnic details.
