Trend Alert: Ring Photography in the Fall

When you’re provided a spectrum of warm color tones as present in the Fall, and there is a wedding to be celebrated somewhere in the near future, what’s left is a plethora of photographic opportunities to capture those intimate moments within the richness of nature! The wedding ring, in particular, holds enough symbolic value to have its own features in every real wedding photography collection. Ultimately, we decided to combine all of these ideas to curate today’s fall season trend post!

Back in ancient Egypt, the ring stood as a symbol for the eternal love of (human) spouses. However, since our bride and groom are not yet present to reflect the wisdom of the old Egyptian sentiment, acorns are all we’ve got.

The uneven repetition and distribution of circular forms give way to such an intriguing aesthetic!

When the leaves fall off, we put the rings on.

It’s Announcement Time!

Bling! Bling, everywhere! That’s engagement season! Well all of this sparkle leads to the next step: announcements! We love wedding announcements that put engagement session photography to use, so put some thought in to these photos. The right shot always makes the perfect announcement! It’s a super simple, yet personal look. Plus, you get to keep showing off that ring! Here’s a few of our favorite engagement photo poses!

Ringing in the New Year

The Patchettes hope everyone had an awesome time ringing in the New Year this weekend! In addition to marking the New Year, these winter months are often known as “engagement season.” We’ve certainly see a ton of exciting proposals pop up on our social media pages. It’s really such a magical time, filled with family and warmth. What better time to propose? While we’re getting prepared for wedding season, it has been so fun to focus on the stunning rings that we’re seeing online and in the store too. Here’s a few engagement ring trends that the Patchettes have noticed and are predicting to be popular in 2017!

Trend Tuesday: Stacked Engagement Rings!

At The Dandelion Patch, we’re lucky enough to be surrounded by cheerful, blushing brides! We also see lots of sparkling engagement rings. The engagement ring is often the first signal of a bride’s style – traditional, trendy, modern, or romantic! 

Stacked engagement rings are a trend that we’re currently swooning over. This look includes multiple wedding bands that pair together to create one shape, normally centered around the engagement ring! If you’re loving this look, you’ll definitely want to check out designer Anna Sheffield for her creative ring stacks.
