Whimsical Valentine’s Day Inspiration with Love Letters

valentine's styled shoot

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we have lots of lovely inspiration this week leading up to Valentine’s Day. I just love the idea of a holiday that celebrates love –  and an extra excuse to share tokens of our love for each other is absolutely wonderful! Today’s inspiration is super gorgeous and I love that they didn’t use  the traditional colors of red, pink + purple. Instead, it’s one that I’ve been obsessing a bit over lately – gold, aqua mint, white + linen (and obviously they have too!). I love the natural + woodland feel of the shoot – and the focus on the lovely tradition of writing love letters. Who wouldn’t love to receive a beautiful love letter on Valentine’s Day – or any day really!? Thanks so much to Annie + Jacob of Brumley & Wells for the concept and the gorgeous photos.

The dress was a dream Annie had for awhile and was created by her best friend, Whitney Watts by hand. Annie made the headpieces, the arrowed heart, rings, brooch and cake topper, and her husband Jacob made the cake. Blossom of Durango created the lovely bouquet and the Oakhaven Permaculture Center was the location for the shoot.

Annie hand painted the woodland Valentine cards for this shoot, and Jacob incorporated those paintings into the invitation and other printables. Super cute, right?!
