(Hint: The below image is the backdrop of said scene) Cantigny-Gardens-Engagement-Photos-Chicago-Rebecca-Marie-Photography-Design_0021 Cantigny-Gardens-Engagement-Photos-Chicago-Rebecca-Marie-Photography-Design_0022 Cantigny-Gardens-Engagement-Photos-Chicago-Rebecca-Marie-Photography-Design_0020 Let's talk about how absolutely perfect the details of Emily & Devin's outfits were!  From the pattern of Emily's skirt, to complimentary textures of her multiple bracelets, even their belts were coordinated together. Not to mention, Devin rocked some fantastic shoes.  Emily also paired the gold of one of her bracelets with fantastic gold earrings that flowed perfectly in the breeze.  Staying in the same color scheme while mixing up textures, made these two look even more adorable together without looking like twins.  If you are looking for inspiration on how to tie together your outfit with details, bookmark these two!
