a getaway for two, please.

This past weekend our lovely folks’ watched our little man while we went to visit the plantation where we were married and a little town nearby. We stayed at the plantation overnight and my oh my, I think I could really just live there. All. of. the. time. It is like a dream, or something. I felt so blessed to be able to stay there and spend some time with my oh so awesome husband. We spent some time at the fall festivals in the area and visited antique stores (my fave.) I think that I ate about five (or maybe even ten) pounds of kettle corn as well. That stuff is just too good! Anywho, here are some pictures that I took while we were visiting!

Those colors!! One reason that I absolutely love autumn.

Just us being ourselves-haha.

We went to SO many different antique stores. There were little treasures everywhere just calling out my name.
But unfortunately, their price tags were a little much…

I really wanted to bring this home with us but I was afraid to even see what the asking price of it was…

We stopped and listened to these guys playing bluegrass for a while…it was so so good! I really would love to start playing the banjo.
(By the way, I’m not sure why that guy is glaring in the photo! Hmmm, maybe he was just trying to pose?)

Awesome colored doors usually always require having a picture (or two) taken!

Please feel free to notice the coffee I spilled all over my dress :)
Also, feel free to notice how small my eyes look in the morning (or anytime of the day really.) Yep, they are actually open in these pictures believe it or not!!


Aw, what a great time it looks like you guys had. Love the goofy pictures, especially the coffee spilled one. ;) something I definitely would have done. :)

There’s nothing like fall colors. Beautiful!

a) You guys are so darling and full of love it makes my eyes water.
b) so glad you shared this song. it reminds me of my wedding 4 years ago when I was 20 and he was 21. More in love than ever, and that song brought tears to my eyes.
c) I must be PMSing because I’m a ball of tears. Ok that’s all.

: )

As always, your pictures are GORGEOUS! LOOKS like fall where you are :)

Arielle, your outfits are always SO CUTE! Gahhh, how do you do it?! :) I’m glad you had a fun getaway with your husband!

What a fun little trip! I love antique stores too, but the stuff I fall in love with is ALWAYS out of my price range! Hehe. Oh, the photo of the dude playing the banjo totally cracked me up! It’s always wonderful to capture an awkward moment. :)

Love all the pics! What would u recommend as a starter camera for my husband and I? Something on the cheaper end to start with! Thanks!

This looks like the sweetest trip ever! I’m also so in love with that yellow card catalogue! It’s fantastic!

So when do I get to move into that house?? It’s wonderful!!
It looks like you had a wonderful adventure!

O my!! Those photos are beautiful! And that house – gorgeous! Where is this charming place?!

This look heavenly!! Such a beautiful couple!

So gorgeous!! I feel like I can just reach out and touch that beautiful kind of day through the pictures.
I love your eyes! i have squinty eyes & i used to be so self-concious about them. but, hey, they’re the eyes God gave me–so I love them.
Love, Leigh
P.S. Also LOVE this song.

these are adorable, the colors, your dress + coffee :) Im so happy fall is here. Your photos are always so sweet to look at , I love them :)

Although I love them all, this has to be one of my more favorite posts of yours, Arielle … it reminds me so much of our ‘younger’ days … seems so long ago, but never far from my field of memories! Love, love, love Andrew Peterson, and I adore the photos here … we love this time of year, too! For quite a few years, every fall, Lew, and I, would go to Brown County and spend the day. Then just before leaving we’d pick one colorful leaf and put it in a little album .. that was so special to us … things kept us from getting down there every year, though, but maybe we’ll have to start that little tradition up again this year! Our 29th anniversary is October 29th, and that isn’t too far away, now! Never stop making those memories … always hold them close to your hearts! You have a blessed week, and thank you for sharing your sweet life with us! :)

It looks like you all had a great time!!! Such beautiful photos :)

This might just be my dream vacation! Everything is beautiful! I’m drooling over the bright doors and the gorgeous leaves!

such beautiful photos of fall and you two! =) love it!
One of these days, Nick and I will have to get away from his work and classes and my med school stuff.

and oh! I like Jill Philips a lot =) I used to replay multiple times the first CD I got of her when I was in college. I may have driven my roommate crazy – but I think she must have liked it too, since she never complained =) hehe. lol.


aww… beautiful pictures, Arielle! ;) looks like y’all had an awesome time!

ohhh my goodness such beautiful pictures!!

Your photographs are getting perpetually more beautiful. so inspiring. :)
