I’m a firm believer in the having engagement photos taken. They give the photographer the opportunity to get to know a couple before their big day, and…hello, adorable photos! I love the fresh, clean style of this Manassas engagement session that I am featuring today. So lovely!

  • Angelle - Engagement and pre-bridal photos afford a relaxing relationship between the bride and groom and photographer before the big day. In this way, they can see one another’s working styles and see what they are eye to eye on or how they differ.

We are so lucky to be in Virginia, aren’t we? I adore the fact that there are so many parks, rivers, and hillsides for saying, “I do.” And today’s mountainside wedding showcases just that. With natural hues reminiscent of the sky, grass, and sand, this event exudes a soft palette that is woven throughout the day.

Guess what? National S’mores Day comes once a year, but you can definitely enjoy this tasty treat all year ’round. Normally, our family makes them with milk chocolate, but I decided to do something different this year and combine a few of my favorite flavors. I enjoy lavender lemonade, and white chocolate has always been a favorite, so I came up with these lavender lemon s’mores for a fun treat!

I partnered with Lindt to do an Instagram post for National S’mores Day, and I loved the recipe so much that I decided to blog it! No compensation was provided for this blog post. 

Lavender Lemon S


  • Laura Dove - Oh wow this sounds like such a sophisticated s’more flavour! We don’t actually have s’mores over here but I am assuming they are just marshmallow?

  • EG III - That recipe looks devine! It never dawned on me to stray from the traditional s’more…but new revelation opens up a world of endless possibilities. Thank you for sharing!

  • Jennifer - They are usually graham crackers, milk chocolate, and toasted marshmallow, but anything can be flipped out for it to be a creative s’more. You should try the classic recipe sometime! 🙂

  • Jackie - Wow that looks delicious! I’ve never had proper smores, in Australia we don’t have graham crackers. So i’ve made an alternative but I don’t know what the usual tastes like haha

    I might try this one though, it’s different but very appealing.

    Jackie – Organised Mum Life

  • Vaibhav Mehta - Jennifer I don’t know the C of cooking but looking at those delightful pictures I do know the E of eating. Damn those are some foodporn pictures or what. You are the Nigella Lawson (my crush) of the blogging world for me!

Do you love to travel? I do! Roaming the globe is so fun – especially if you are traveling with your sweetie. Why not give your luggage an edge when it comes off of the conveyor at the airport, and create bright, easy-to-recognize, simple DIY luggage tags to set yours apart?

Simple DIY Luggage Tags in Leather for Honeymoon Travel | Hill City Bride Virginia Wedding Blog


  • Aditya - Well, that is one way to be cost effective. I might tell my mother to do this. She loves stuff like that. In fact, I shared this link with her. But my main question, would airport authorities won’t have a problem, right?

  • Jennifer - I’ve been using mine for several flights now! 🙂

  • Brandy - These are easy enough to make DIY luggage tags. I don’t travel much but the next time I do, I am going to use your tutorial to make my own travel tags.

  • The Perfectly Imperfect Mummy - What a fantastic idea & they look amazing!!. I love craft projects. Makes it so much easier to locate your luggage when it’s coming off the conveyor belt!! 🙂

  • Mommy Sigrid - I love the idea of these DIY luggage tags. At least they are bendable because of the material. Sometimes I am scared of those nice cards that they might break or those cute ones because people at the airport remove them. I had one Disney luggage tag that was taken at the airport. It was gone forever. 🙁

  • kylie cre8tone - Such a lovely luggage tag.. it makes it extra special… to be DIY version of luggage tag.. must be extra unique…

  • Monidipa Dutta - Well, that is one way to be cost effective. I’m off to Italy next week so I am going to use your tutorial to make my own travel tags. I love this idea.

  • Chloe - These tags are not only a good idea but look great too! I especially love the style you’re going for in method 2.

  • Girl Bosses Rock - These are so crafty and cute! I would prefer these over the ones bought at the store because they would stand out much better. The ones from the store all look the same (just like the luggage) and it is often hard to tell which one is yours. I made my own tags for our luggage and made sure it stands out in the sea of luggage on the carousel!

  • Jennifer - Italy? I’m so envious! Have a great time. 🙂

  • Jackie - Oooh I love the stamped look, very classy. I need to get some stamps! What a great way to make your luggage stand out to you on the carousel as well.

    Jackie – Organised Mum Life

  • Nina - I travel so much that I really should make some luggage tags! It seems like a fantastic idea! I love how you lay this out step-by-step.

  • Sreekar - That’s very creative and at the same time functional too! My son made some tags the other day with cardboard. I have more ideas to share with him now!

  • Clarice / Camping for Women - This is cool. I showed it to my girls and they are excited to make one for their school bags. Will try to grab the materials soon so we can do this next weekend.

  • jefferson - Wow, that’s cool DIY. I’ve never thought to make luggage tags, that’s truly cool…and it looks like you’re passionate enough on DIY, 🙂

  • Jade - I love to travel – all the time that I should really make myself a name tag! These are so creative and I love the leather idea! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Elizabeth O - This is such a great idea. I really like how creative and unique these are!

  • Farya - Such a cute diy, I travel a lot so I am definitely going to sit down one evening and create this for my friends and my self, I have to look for stamos though

  • David Elliott - This is such a fun way to do it if I were going out on a trip soon. I don’t always think of doing something like this. And I have always had luggage with the tags on it.

  • Fashion and Style Police - I love the sound of these luggage tags. Luggage tags are so important. I mistakenly took a box that wasn’t mine at the airport. Having a clear luggage tag would have saved the day.

  • Nidhi Fouzdar - This sounds like an awesome idea to avoid chaos at airport. And these luggage tags sounds so cool

  • Cassandra Rose - I run a DIY lifestyle club at my school and know for a fact that my kids would love this project! I love how creative these tags can get. Will definitely try it this year and tell you how it goes!

  • Autumn Murray - What a lovely idea. I used to be a wedding planner and have never seen anything like this.

  • Michele Dennis - I love these simple DIY luggage tags! I love anything that lets me be creative and I love how although these are simple could have endless creative potential. I also think these would make great gifts for the travelers in your life.

  • Mommy Sigrid - There are gorgeous! I love the half colored bottles with the flowers on the side. 😀

  • Mary Burris - I’d be afraid of the glass boxes breaking, but on the other hand – I can definitely see one or both of the cake stands in my home. Who doesn’t love cake? Or other goodies, for that matter… I also like the colored deco bottles. Just the right pop of color a home needs.

  • Backpacking Series - Such pretty things. Especially loved the Glass Deco Bottles. The colors are soothing and they look really nice. Also liked the idea for well wishes box. Very well thought through recommendations.

  • HilLesha - I love Minted! I’ll have to check out some of these decor items, because they’d make great photo props as well.

When it comes to your wedding party, the bride and groom choose those who are meaningful in their lives…family, friends, confidants. They stand by your side on your big day, so why not show them how important they are in a big way? Admittedly, the girls are easier to buy for (see here!), but when it comes to the guys, making the right choice can be difficult! Well, that’s why we partnered with Groovy Groomsmen Gifts to showcase some amazing gift ideas for your entourage! With a wide selection and lots of personalization here are 8 picks for our favorite groomsmen gift ideas.
