The heart of Ellen and Tomâ€™s engagement session with Jordan Brittleyâ€”and their dog, Rockyâ€”is a sweet and romantic picnic set in Forest Park in St. Louis. We love the pretty, low-key arrangement of tulips and hydrangeas, purchased at Trader Joeâ€™s and hand-tied by Ellenâ€™s mom. The gold leaf monogram topper by Crosswire Design adds an elegant touch to the Derby Day Pie Ellen made; the first taste of this dessert is what won Tom over in the beginning! Weâ€™re big fans of the vintage feel of these photos, aided in part by floral Ralph Lauren chinaâ€”real plates on a picnic, swoon!â€”and linens from Cake Vintage Table & Home. Enjoy these lovely images!
