Valentine’s Day Elopement Inspiration

Valentine's inspiration

We had to end this week-before-V-Day with a stunning editorial to get us into the romantic state of mind. Between this gorgeous shoot + the sweet (and creative!) surprise proposal video we shared earlier today, we’re guessing it’ll be all things love, all around, all weekend long!

The Missouri creatives who brought this pretty scene to life (photog, Shannon Duggan, + designer, Laurie Everett) were going for a more avant-garde look, with that great red dress and stunning headpiece seen below. But they also wanted to keep the setting approachable and tie in a little romantic flare, perfect for Valentine’s Day. And we think they definitely achieved both those goals…

The dress, Marchesa Notte – The Kingsley, from Rent the Runway is the absolute perfect shade of red, no? A gorgeous cross between crimson + wine. And all that lace!
