From Lexi of Lexington and Co – “Christa and Mark have been dating for 7 years and were engaged just over a year ago. Their wedding is soon and since they are just the sweetest, I wanted to style a shoot that captured who they are and the things they love.

Christa and Mark are into camping and love the beauty of the great outdoors so it was important to style them in their comfort zone. A lot of the décor is earthy toned with pops of color – which represents the couple perfectly as they both are very grounded with fun and lively spirits.”

From Lexington and Co – “I sent Mark and Christa each a Mad Lib love letter that they filled out and read to each other as they sat against the most picture-perfect backdrop. It brought so much life to the photos and natural emotion that you can truly feel between these two. One of my favorite lines was from Mark’s: ‘I hope on our wedding day you get to feel how loved you really are. From me, from your family, and from all the people in your life who care so very much about you.

After eating some sweet treats and sipping on some bubbly, mark grabbed his guitar and serenaded Christa with the sweetest of sounds. It felt like they were the only ones in the world, and we were just watching in on the most beautiful love story. It was one of the most special shoots I’ve ever styled and it continues to be dear to my heart.”
