So it’s been quite a while since I’ve been on my blog and it’s because I’m getting married in less than three weeks!! Ahhhh, I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone by!
Three weeks from yesterday, Evan and I will be married. I will be Kaitlyn Beemer! Since our wedding is so close, I’ve been crazy busy working on last minute details, creating a seating chart, re-visiting the venue with our day-of coordinator. There is so much going on and though I am so excited to be married, I am also excited for the busyness and stress to end.
Evan and I did finally make time to get our engagement photos taken. I mean, since we did them about a month before our wedding they’re more like couple photos at this point, but I am still so excited to share them with you.
Our photographer Ashley is absolutely amazing. She takes her photos with film and has an innate ability to capture the natural light. The photos came out better than I could have even expected. Initially the day was supposed to be cloudy and rainy, but as we got closer to our photo destination the sun came out and it was in the 70s! It was just perfect 🙂
Here are just a few of my favorites…

Olivia Palermo…or should I say Olivia Huebl…has been one of my style inspirations ever since her days on MTV’s The City. She just knows how to put an outfit together. She also doesn’t seem to shy away from any style or trend. That may just be the reason I admire her so much. Olivia doesn’t put herself in a box when it comes to style. She seems to be open to anything. And that anything includes a three-piece wedding ensemble!! Check it out!
Olivia married longtime boyfriend and model Johannes Huebl on June 29 in Bedford, N.Y. Obviously she styled herself (I mean the girl needs no help!) Instead of a traditional gown, Olivia opted to wear a cashmere sweater with scattered ostrich feathers, white shorts and a tulle skirt all by Carolina Herrera. And for the shoes, she went with blue Manolo Blahniks! Apparently, they were the same Manolos that Carrie Bradshaw wore when she married Big at the courthouse!! Way to pay tribute to such an iconic character!!! I can’t say I was surprised that Olivia made such unique choice of wedding attire. She seems like a risk taker and this risk — if you even want to call it that — definitely paid off! She looks stunning and so effortlessly gorgeous! This is such a great way for anyone on a budget to dress for their big day as well. While her attire was far from cheap, anyone looking for an alternative to the wedding dress could easily sport a white sweater, shorts and sheer overlay skirt that would look just as elegant! It seems that this was just the beginning for the couple. Wedding #2 is on the way!!! And I cannot wait to see what Olivia wears for that ceremony. I have a feeling she’ll be wearing a more traditional dress, but Olivia will definitely make it all her own! She always does!!
