An Inspiring Engagement Shoot With Plenty of Pottery Barn Love


Wedding planner and stylist Jill La Fleur and Alea Lovely Photography planned this inspirational shoot for newly engaged couples starring several Pottery Barn accessories. La Fleur’s love for Fall initiated the idea for this shoot. “Being from Chicago originally, I absolutely love fall and was excited to do something a little different from what you normally see in California.”

She even used a Cozy Cable Knit Throw and a Jacquelyne Rattan Curve Lidded Basket to set up an impromptu picnic for the magnetic couple.
