Yes, this is very random for me but I thought it was too fun not to share.

A few weeks ago, I offered to take engagement/save the date pictures to my cousin, Brian who’s getting married to Mona in September. If you know anything about Brian, you know his favorite food are donuts. So he said he wanted to do a donut photoshoot theme. So once he told me that, I went onto Pinterest and searched the web and couldn’t really find anything that had couples donut theme for inspiration.

So sitting on it for a few days, I randomly thought of American Beauty, with the scene of the girl who’s just surrounded by rose petals. I brought up the idea to Brian and Mona and they loved it. Obviously, we would have had to have A LOT of donuts in order to replicate that, so this was the best we could do. LOL.

I think it came out so good though! HAHA
