All The Old Romantic Legends

Somehow Harrisburg got voted one of America's most romantic cities. Since I went to college a stone's throw away I find that hard to believe. I mostly think of the city by crowded clubs on first street and delicious burritos and awful roads with terrible parking and a couple of good vintage never seemed the least bit romantic to me. The only spot I can see deserving of such a label is the paths by the river--in summer they're gorgeous. You can walk beneath the arching bridges and watch the sun set, or find a bench or grassy knoll and enjoy a picnic (as I witnessed firsthand shortly before taking these pictures). It wasn't a romantic evening for me, but it was a lovely brief jaunt followed by a diner visit--which is always a good way to close an evening. I'm still wondering how Harrisburg got voted as so romantic...

  1. Beautiful photos, especially when you can see the silhouette :-) x

  2. These photos are beautiful! The sunset and the white dress and white flowers make everything look very romantic!

  3. A romantic look for a not-so-romantic place. :) Love the dress.

  4. That headband! I LOVE IT! (although I can never get headbands to stay on my head :/ They just slip and slide around) But it looks absolutely adorable on you!

  5. Yeah, 'romantic' is a word I have definitely never, ever used to describe Harrisburg. Truly curious. Beautiful photos though - riverfront park is always a wonderful spot.

  6. all time favourite outfit, adore this dress and the floral headband. these photos are stunning as well :) x

  7. Don't know how romantic Harrisburg is, but your dress and flowers in your hair sure do look romantic to me. And so do these photos by the water at sunset.

  8. beautiful as always

  9. That is interesting! I never would have picked Harrisburg to be romantic. Unless going by these photos alone. Then it is very deserving of the adjective.

  10. Harrisburg? Romantic? Umm. What? That's so weird.

    However, you these pictures certainly did turn out so lovely! I am loving that dress - it looks so pretty on you!


  11. This dress is stunning and I love that you paired it with the thicker belt!


  12. Wow, stunning! Alex

  13. That's funny that Harrisburg got voted as a romantic place :p Your outfit looks romantic at least! That lace dress is gorgeous!

  14. These photos are absolutely stunning. That scenery is amazing, and you - in that dress and floral crown - are a vision! So so pretty and lovely. :)

  16. Wow, this is probably my set of photos that I've ever seen from you! I love the lighting in this one, and your outfit ^_^. Everything looks so serene...

  17. I'm curious as to where you live. You mention in many posts you live outside the city or in the countryside. Is it just outside of Harrisburg? Just wondering since I happen to live in Lebanon, not too far from Harrisburg.
