LOCATION | JC RAULSTON ARBORETUM
I’m so excited to be bringing you guys my first weekend post! As part of date night last night, Ryan and I visited the JC Raulston Arboretum and strolled through the gardens just as the sun was sinking below the trees. We’ve been through the gardens so many times – and even shot several posts for the blog there. But last night was the first time we discovered this new adorable little spot hidden behind the trees (what I forever will call my secret little garden).
What more could you want from an enchanted garden? There was a lily pad pond complete with croaking frogs, a little white gazebo perfect for love birds, and the most charming little archway with chandeliers! It truly was something I had seen out of a fairytale story. I knew instantly it was the setting of my next post and we had to get a few snaps in.
This fitted ruffle dress is one of my new favorites! It’s been on repeat since I got it recently. It’s so sweet and flirty – perfect for date night! And what’s more perfect than a straw hat and some sassy gold-detailed sandals for a summertime evening stroll? While we only had a few minutes to soak in the beauty surrounding us before we almost got locked in the park, it was a wonderful way to start off the weekend.
