A Southern Romance

“she walks in beauty, like the night
of cloudless climes and starry skies;
and all that’s best of dark and bright
meet in her aspect and her eyes;
thus mellowed to that tender light
which heaven to gaudy day denies”
- Lord Byron

“love at the lips was touch as sweet as I could bear;
and once that seemed too much; I lived on air
that crossed me from sweet things
the scent of…was it musk
from hidden grapevine springs
down hill at dusk”
- Robert Frost

“here is the deepest secret nobody knows
it is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”
- E.E. Cummings

I know this post is a little picture overload - but I am in love with every single one of the shots in this season's Ruche Early Summer lookbook! And was memorized by all the romantic poems slipped in between. These were shot by my amazing wedding photographer, Stephanie Williams. She was amazing to work with and I have loved following her career as she's done some non-wedding projects, like this lookbook. These photos were shot in South Carolina - don't they remind you of the Notebook (I know I wasn't the only one who had a major crush on Noah and Allie, aka Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams)? Its just so romantic! And now I can't wait to go to Charleston next week.
