Preppy Holiday Engagement

Preppy Holiday Engagement

Editor’s Note: I arrived in Asheville, NC, today with my best blogging friend, Gillian, of Coastal Bride. We’ll be in town for the week and sharing our adventures on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook so I hope you’ll join us! For now, I know you’ll enjoy this gem of a post from the archives – it’s such a perfect way to usher in the excitement for the holidays, don’t you think? 

This Christmas Tree-shopping engagement shoot is so precious and stylishly classic … hello, tartan, duck boots, Pendleton blanket & Hunter boots!. And Ashley + Alejandro’s love story is seriously made for the silver screen. Just wait ’till you read it! / Images by Kate Headley.


From Kate, “If you can believe it, Ashley met Alejandro when she found his ID on the street when they were both living in Philadelphia. She messaged him on Facebook and the two met up at a Starbucks for her to return it. Three hours later (and an expensive parking ticket from her being parked in only 15 minute parking) the rest is history! I had so much fun shooting in the West Village of NYC, where Ashley and Alejandro live today. After some hot (and cold) beverages, they chose a Christmas tree for their apartment…the Pendleton blanket making a perfect and practical tree skirt. I loved every minute of this shoot–the backdrop, the great styling and such a warm and fun couple to be around. I can’t wait for their wedding with Simply Chic Events next fall!”

See more from this cute shoot.
And thanks so much to Kate Headley for sharing her darling photos with us. What a gem!
