Instagram Inspiration: Last Week's Top 5

Week of 11.24.14

Having a case of the Mondays after a fun-filled Friendsgiving weekend? We don't blame you, but don't forget that it's a short work week! Our romance-themed Instagram roundup this week will have your Monday blues packing and leave you with more wedding planning inspiration (or just some eye candy). We couldn't draw our eyes away from Seattle-based photographer Matthew Land, of Matthew Land Studio's elegant equestrian engagement shoot. It takes me back to my 8-year old days, flipping through my copy of Black Beauty and dreaming of riding away into the sunset with the wind in my hair (that gorgeous rock and manicure? Bonus!).

Moving clockwise: Every bride can relate to that full-of-eager-anticipation moment when she hears the "it's time" announcement, beautifully captured by Emily Young of Emily Young Photography. Below that, Tamara Nicole of Simply by Tamara Nicole Wedding and Event Planning, shows us a super creative bridal aisle idea of a South Asian couple's entire love story (as seen on Facebook) inscribed into the fabric—complete with photos. The bride literally walked down "Memory Lane" to get to one of the most memorable moments of her life.

Lora Grady, Seattle-based lifestyle and wedding photographer gets festive with this couple's photo shoot at Trinity Tree Farm. Those cute Hunter rain boots in the shot give it just the right touch of the Pacific Northwest. For the final photo, we travel from cold and rainy weather to an island destination at The Moorings in Islamorada with destination wedding photographer, KT Merry. A golden couple plus one, a golden moment, photographed at a golden hour.
