Valentine’s Day grew up and got a hot makeover: say hello to this sultry wedding inspiration from the mind of Tularosa Flowers‘ creative director, Dawn Weisberg! Taking cues from Renaissance still-life paintings and the jaw-droppingly beautiful Leanne Marshall ‘Talila’ gown, the day came together with vintage-leaning design details and plenty of roses for good Valentine’s Day measure.
Let the ethereal photos from Paco and Betty sweep you away…
Lovers in the Wild
Like a modern fairy tale!
Let’s talk the looks! Babe Hair By B designed an intricate braid and loose flowing curls for the beautiful bride, while Girl Meets Bongga gave her a glowing look to compliment that stunning gown! The groom went retro-mod, complete with floral velvet blazer from ASOS and saffron turtleneck from Amazon.
Sultry in Saffron
The bridal bouquet of roses, anemones, mimosa, and ranunculus was accented with hand-dyed silk ribbon from Hey It’s Oh So Pretty. Just loving those colors against her dress!
A Fresh Take on Valentine’s Day Flowers
All those golden tones!
How gorgeous is this bouquet by Tularosa Flowers?!
A Regal Reception
Imagine the treasures you’d find foraging in the cellar of an old château…and you’ve got the dreamy inspiration for the reception tablescape!
*when your tablescape looks like a painting* SWOON!
Hostess Haven brought in the perfect mix of heirloom crystal and silver, paired with natural wood chargers and handmade ceramic plates to complete the charming look.
An Array of Aphrodisiacs
What to serve on the most romantic day of the year? Sage Bleu Catering‘s menu will blow you away: Valentine’s Day-worthy aphrodisiacs like raw oysters and deviled quail eggs topped with cheddar crisps, charcuterie feasting boards of cheeses, nuts and dried fruits, roasted beets and herbed cream cheese towers, and goat cheese + pomegranate topped mini pancakes then smothered in honey and truffles. So. Much. Yes!
Drink Up + Chill
The day ended with the best possible Valentine’s Day drink: a handmade rose elixir made from organic roses grown on Tularosa Flowers‘ farm!!
What’s more romantic than a perfect red rose?
The sweet finish: a black + red cake by Jenny Wenny Cakes!
Can Valentine’s Day be every day? Because we’re TOTALLY in love. Thanks to the team behind the day for sharing—XOXO!
