This may be one of my favorite posts to date. Why, you are probably asking!? Well it’s one of my few and most recent bridal and wedding related blog posts. I have been so excited to share these photos and this feature with you all, so here we go!!!

When Kentucky Bride contacted me to do a feature in the newest issue I immediately said YES! I went out the next day, shot my pictures, and had them ready to go! This past Sunday I finally got to see the published issue and was so pleased! There’s almost 200 pages filled with everything a bride needs to know (especially in Kentucky – the venue spaces they share are awesome!) My specific feature is all about, “What’s In My Beauty Bag”. I shared a couple of products that I always carry with me and my two agendas!

Planners & Agenda

Whether you are a bride or not Erin Condren has the best planners of all time! They have so many great options to choose from. Each planner is customizable and you pick your lay-out, pages, stickers, and extra accessories. My Louis Vuitton one is also my other favorite agenda! I have the MM size and it’s great for carrying around. I buy my filler pages from Etsy.

Beauty Products

The Amazing Concealer I linked is the best cover-up I have ever worn. I highly recommend it. My newest perfume (CoCo Chanel) smells amazing! Clint got it for me for Valentine’s Day and he loves it too! I get so many questions about tanning and how I keep my skin glowing. Jergen’s is my secret. If you have never tried it go get a bottle!

If you have any questions about this post, these products, or anything bridal related just shoot me an email or comment!

p.s.- After shooting with House of White Bridal on Sunday and seeing the newest issue of Kentucky Bride, I am ready for wedding planning!

For all my soon-to-be brides, I hope y’all are too!

Make sure you grab a copy of this Issue on stands or at the Kentucky Bride Website!

Fiancee Shirt  \\ White Moto Leggings  \\  Adidas Superstar Shoes  \\  Red Lipstick

 A feminine, sporty look is coming your way!!! I styled this outfit around my Adidas sneakers & love the casual vibe! These Moto Leggings are also my all time favorite!!!! They are a little pricey but totally worth the splurge! The material is super thick, supportive, stylish, and comfortable! I honestly can’t say enough amazing things about them 😉

and for all my engaged gals out there, this tee is a must! I sized up to a Large so it fits big and kinda hangs!! Wear it during your engagement season & we’ll be twins!!

Hope you all have a Happy Thursday!!!!!

Dress 1 |  Dress 2  |  Dress 3

Yes, I am in total bride mode!!! and yes, I just keep buying white dresses.. It may or may not be a phase, but hey I’m in love over here! These 3 dresses are all having something a little different to offer! The first lace dress is more of a body-con style, while the second is flirty, and the third is traditional! Personally, the Dress 3 is my favorite! Something about the midi length and sheer overlay just catches my eye! Aside from being bridal, each of these would make for a perfect night out dress or date night dress!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!! xoxo, T

drumroll please…. Introducing my whole family, Johnson-Stuen-Ford, my first “engagement” party, and what I wore!!!

This past weekend my soon to be mother-in-law hosted our 1st engagement party, in C’s hometown! Both of our immediate families were there & it was absolutely wonderful!!! It was so nice to finally celebrate together and share the love!!! We all ate dinner together, opened our first set of gifts, splurged on the most delicious cake, and shared stories over wine!!

&& how cute is that message tree!? everyone left us a little note and shared a piece of advice to a happy marriage! There were so many good ones it was hard to pick a favorite! This is a good idea for any couple about to wed! You could have a message tree at your shower or wedding!!  & speaking of good ideas, my mom started a tradition about a year ago, where we get engraved spoons on big occasions! She added 4 new ones to my set, as you can see in one of the pics above! It’s a meaningful gift that is great to start giving on holidays or at special events!

hope y’all are all feeling the love! xoxo, T
