This is a Valentine’s Day inspired shoot that Sarah, one of our Dallas wedding planners, and several vendors collaborated on recently.
The goal was a subtle Valentine’s day wedding (how fitting is it that Feb. 14th, 2015 falls on a Saturday?) with bright pops of red as an accent. It was important to us to depict a slightly darker, more mature version of Valentine’s day. We wanted something romantic, ethereal, and intimate. We found the perfect spot in a nature preserve in Dallas that had thorns and brambles to complete the look. It also brought to mind Maleficent, from Sleeping Beauty but I digress.
We used red pops in the cushions that accented the table, florals, invitations, flowers for the cake, bouquet, boutonniere, lipstick, and the bride’s hair. And yes, that is a real, giant, beautiful peony! Watters, the dress designer, provided the bridesmaids’ outfits and the amazing bridal gown that has not been photographed until now.
This wedding was featured in Magnolia Rouge.
