Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! Andy and I usually celebrate the anniversary of when we first started dating (12 years ago! OMG!) by ditching the packed & over-priced restaurants with some pizza from &Pizza and pie from Dangerously Delicious pies. We will be joined this year by my parents – making it extra romantic ;) (I kid I kid!). I leave you today with some GORGEOUS Valentine’s Day Wedding Inspiration from Intrigue Designs & Natalie Franke Photography AND some link love. Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend!

Capitol Inspiration: A Valentine’s Inspired Shoot with Pink Hearts & Vintage Stylings

I couldn’t sleep one night because a theme was fluttering through head.

And pretty soon you will see just what Elle with Elle Designs meant. This Valentine’s inspired, vintage light pink & teal styled shoot is gorgeous with a capital G. Heart shaped balloons, pink lipstick, the snazziest retro hair, and the CUTEST teal dress. I am in LOVE.

Oh wait, did I mention there is a teal, mustache flash involved? I think that if I took Capitol Romance, Valentine’s Day & vintage styling, and put it in a blender. The fun, beautiful concoction that would come out, would look EXACTLY like this shoot.

As a wedding designer, I guess my days revolve around love; love stories of first meetings and happily ever afters; so  I could not help but want to style a shoot that was a little dreamy, a little retro, and full of sweetness. I woke up and started sketching a simplistic, yet sweet, idea of mint and blush focused around Cupid’s big day. The planning began, vendors were contacted, I bought a white statue of a poodle, and sweetness arose.  I created a back drop of pink, heart-shaped balloons behind a rustic, mint-green bench. A petticoat and dress were dyed pink, sparkling desserts were displayed on pink cake stands and retro-inspired hair & makeup set the vibe. Our beautiful and playful model, Lori, filled the shoot with giggles and Ooh La La’s.
