Who else is counting down to the return of Gilmore Girls? 4 DAYS. To tide us all over until then, I could not be more excited to share this adorable shoot I got to be a part of recently. Megan of Locklane Events dreamed up the inspiration for a small town bachelorette getaway for Rory, and we had so much fun bringing the concept to life, captured perfectly by Erin Lee Allender. (Obviously, we don't know that there's a Gilmore wedding in the works, but.... Team Jess. Just saying.)
For even more photos and Megan's 10 tips on how to throw the perfect Stars Hollow bachelorette weekend getaway, don't miss the feature on Style Me Pretty! She covered everything you need to make the weekend Lorelai approved: coffee, coffee, coffee at Luke's, pancake breakfast at the inn, pizza night with platters of junk food, Mrs. Kim approved antique shopping, a schedule worthy of Paris Gellar, and loads of small town charm.
So many talented vendors contributed to this shoot, so be sure to peruse the full list at the bottom of this post.
Grab a cup of coffee, cozy up, and enjoy. (And keep your eye out for yours truly as one of the models!)

How could you not fall in love with this cheerful, summery color palette? Tennessee and Collin are some of the most joyful, kind, beautiful people you'll ever meet and it was an absolutely pleasure to be a part of this Dallas wedding. Some of my favorite details: the bridesmaids' adorable tulle skirts, the perfect coral charm peonies in Tennessee's bouquet, and the happy couple making their getaway on a motorcycle.
Whimsical, ethereal, lush... Everything about this wedding embodied the loveliness and romance of spring. I sure am happy for fall to be here, but these photos are making me miss spirea and all of those other sweet spring flowers!
