All the girls on team GWS have recently admitted some very important news to each other: every time we see an ethereal gown by Emily Rose Riggs Bridal, our hearts skip a beat. The detailing, the silhouettes, the romantic hues. We could go on all day long! So when Emily herself sent over this stunning Valentine’s Day feature with us, captured to perfection by Maria Lamb Photography, it was a definite given that we’d share the dress eye candy here with you.
From Lane (of Something Borrowed), The inspiration behind our photo shoot was to give a nod to Valentine’s Day but not too whimsical or kitschy. When you think of Valentine’s, you immediately think chocolates and roses but we wanted to take it a step further by incorporating an oyster bar by Foster’s Craft Cooking and a delicate signature drink compliments of Mint & Mirth.
The team went with a romantic + delicately curated theme. The florals by The Green Dandelion featured a rich color palette of reds and pinks + perfectly complemented the stunning paper goods, designed + calligraphed by Jenny from Graceline.
We love the vintage-inspired hair + makeup by Renee Bruhn. That burgundy lip!
Never a better V-Day arrangement. We’d like one for the GWS office, please!!!
There’s some serious dress obsessing goin’ on!
And what a romantic table for two, right? We love this for a sweetheart table vision or to recreate for a Valentine’s Day dinner at home.
We just can’t get enough!
A big thanks to the team below for sharing! We’re more in the romance state of mind than ever!
