“All You Need is Love” Engagement Party Inspiration

A few months ago, I got a call from Occasions Magazine requesting a Valentine’s day themed shoot. My first in print full feature! I jumped, squealed and did a little dance. Brainstorming ideas, I decided to go with an Engagement party on Valentine’s Day. What better way to capture love?!  The shoot included tablescape, dessert table {sharing those pics very soon}, a Champagne bar, photo booth, candy favor table & a Love notes for the Bride table.  Here’s my inspiration for the shoot:

“All you need is Love” – Famous words, a beautiful song, and cherished motto. I wanted to put together a engagement party that would capture love. With shades of pink, gold and silver with vintage & glam touches that came together so beautifully.

I’ve been dying to share this with you all. It’s been months and months and I’m so excited to finally share it! This shoot wouldn’t have turned out so beautifully without the help of Mandy Rye from Waiting on Martha. Not only does she have amazing taste and helped with the venue, the serving pieces and set up but she was one of my models. Big huge thank you to my sweet friend Lauren from Lauren Nicole Studios. She is such a talented photographer and I just adore working with her.
