Ethereal Valentine’s Day Inspiration

Rose Quartz Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day, you guys! As we joked about last week, every day is a pretty big celebration of love around these parts, but it’s still fun to dream about an idyllic Valentine’s date night or snag a few extra-romantic wedding ideas, right? So, today we’re sharing this gorgeous shoot, sent over by our friends at Rustic White Photography, that’s filled to the brim with lush florals + ethereal inspiration.

Designed by Molly McKinley Designs, we’re loving the sweet scene filled with soft gray, mauve, and blush pink hues, along with the story behind the eye-catching details. The team shares, Since 600 BC, rose quartz has been given as a token of love and is considered the “stone of the heart.” Promoting harmony and beauty, this stone is the perfect symbol to represent the day of love. We incorporated rose quartz in a subtle way throughout our details – in the design and styling of our invitation suite, the table scape, and the cake.

Modern-Vintage Valentine’s Day Elopement Inspiration

Valentines Editorial

Inspired by a Victorian Valentine card they happened across, the team at For the Love Events created this shoot as a modern interpretation of a vintage Valentine’s Day elopement. They chose lacy textures, a saturated botanical palette + handcrafted details like the oversized cross stitch rose motif backdrop and embroidered heart place cards. We love, love, love the lush, quixotic florals by Floriography, which helped create a scene that’s completely perfect for the couple who wants to elope in a relaxed, cozy + romantic setting. And we love how The Livelys perfectly captured each sweet, delicate detail!

Moody Valentine’s Day Elopement Inspiration

Moody Valentines Inspiration

Valentine’s Day is just two days away, which means – sadly – our week of love is coming to a close. (Wait, who are we kidding? Every week we celebrate love around here – and we also have some fun features lined up for this weekend!) But to get in an even more romantic mood, we thought we’d share this dreamy editorial, captured by Taralynn Lawton, filled with lovely florals and a gorgeous palette.

Taralynn shares, The inspiration behind this editorial was deep and passionate romance, brought together with a deep red color palette perfect for two lovers on Valentine’s day. We picked a secluded little park nestled in the side of a mountain to evoke a feeling of intimacy; a peaceful and romantic place fit for an elopement. Aubriana of The Bloomery Co brought in florals of deep reds and purples, with Christina of Makeup By Quis complementing the tones with a luscious red lip on the bride.
