When Taylor released the music video for “I Bet You Think About Me,” and haunted her ex on his wedding day…well, you can bet what we were thinking about. The Venn diagram of our love for Taylor Swift and our love for weddings is a circle. And thankfully, the same is true for the dream team who decided to put their own spin on Taylor’s world with an ode to that ever romantic (and equally scorned) holiday, Valentine’s Day.
From the team who dove down the rabbit hole, soared on a magic carpet, brought the Pride Lands to life, and reimagined a certain fashionable villain as a bride, Taylor is just the latest queen to be reimagined. They’re known for going above and beyond and this time Jaime at Autumn Nomad, Abby + Nicole at Nicole Mower Events, and photographer Cody James Barry certainly stirred up some trouble.
Swifties always enjoy searching through every last detail, so let the hunt for the Easter eggs begin!
If Taylor Swift Planned a Wedding…
Swiftie vow books!
A Taylor Swift Wedding Dress
Before seeing red, there’s blush—and hope for what could be. This blush dress, “Yvette” by Francesca Avila, features one of our favorite 2022 trends with that removable puff sleeve. And she’s looking every bit a queen in that headpiece by Maria Elena!
Makeup artist Nikki Fontaine nailed that classic red lip and cat-eye!
For the “Red (Taylor’s Version) meets Valentine’s Day” inspiration, it was clear that the setting needed lots of negative space. Inspired by “Blank Space,” the Maine Classic Car Museum proved to be the perfect unique venue!
Flowers played a huge role in the design and Apotheca Flower Shoppe brought a modern, chic spin to traditional Valentine’s Day flowers.
Does a red convertible feel familiar??
A Toast to Taylor
The signage was a collaboration between Kate’s Calligraphy + Nicole Mower Events. They brought in nods to Taylor via the cocktail names and the fonts, reminiscent of fonts used in both Red (Taylor’s Version) and Folklore album design.
A Table Set for (Ex) Lovers
The tablescape designed by Nicole Mower Events was inspired by Taylor’s boldness and subtlety at the same time. The color scheme created through the place settings and florals complement the aesthetic of Red (Taylor’s Version) while the stationery is a nod to Taylor’s beloved Easter eggs.
Table no. 13, what else?
Hmm, let’s just take a closer look at those place cards, shall we?
The Wedding Cake (Jaime’s Version)
Are you ready for it? Jaime at Autumn Nomad paid close attention to the cake Taylor destroys at her ex’s wedding and put her own spin on it! If you look closely you’ll find similar details like sparrows (a reference to 1989?), and a little Valentine’s Day (Taylor’s Version) style with “LOVE” and “TS” piped over the second tier.
Well, these Lover-inspired cookies are perfect for Valentine’s Day!
If you thought the cake was a work of art, you’ll never believe that Jaime also MADE this dress! Adorned with flowers from Apotheca Flower Shoppe, it’s layers and layers of red tulle (and perhaps a little dash of revenge).
Heart sunnies were a MUST.
Can you even?! The dedication and detail is on point!
A massive cake and a killer red dress—what’s one more? Jaime at Autumn Nomad created a single-tier cake for a single purpose…
“I hope you think about me…”
Of course, polaroids to remember. So, which album do we think we’re getting next? And more importantly, how soon can we dream up another wedding inspiration to celebrate?? Thanks again to the talented team who brought Valentine’s Day (Taylor’s Version) to life!
