Beloved Story

August 21, 2017

✨✨We got Beloved Stories featured! ✨✨Beloved Stories is a community of photographers and romantic visual storytellers. I used their dreamy Lightroom preset to edit these photos captured by Vanessa Mayberry. Now – I’m ever so happy to share our beloved story with you!

There are so many things I cherish about our love story, but one of the things I love most (aside from my deep admiration and respect for Alex as an individual) is our way of communicating with one another.

The volare dark rose with mesh band ticked off all my must haves to a great long lasting, classic time piece. The band is adjustable and strong (I will not wear a leather band because it’s inevitable that it will wear down one day). The face is large and easy to read, non marked with numbers or seconds (gotta have negative space). I personally keep my watch 3 min faster so that knowing the time down to the minute isn’t that crucial for being on schedule. The colours, black on dark rose gold is strikingly sexy, minimal, and feminine. Matching it with my wardrobe is a breeze as it goes well with all my neutral tones. Continue Reading…
