Honestly, this post does not need much of an introduction except for the fact that is so full of pretty details that it has me tickled pink. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this styled shoot has all the ingredients for a perfect Valentine’s Day date. Are you ready for some gorgeous Valentine’s Day inspiration? That’s exactly what we’re serving up this morning, and we have to warn you, it is a pretty good one! This super stunning Valentine’s Day inspired shoot is really amazing because Perfectly Made Weddings, together with a group of fabulous vendors created a lovely romantic affair. It has everything that any girl and guy would want for their special day!
What makes this gorgeous styled shoot extra special is the fact that this couple is a real couple. These high school sweethearts were recently engaged, which made this styled shoot even more real. It is a true representation of sweet love shared between this young couple who expresses their love in the most beautiful of ways. You can feel the love this couple shares with just one peek at the photographs below. I think you will find that these two are the cutest couple! When on-site for this shoot, all I was saying was, “OMG, you guys are SO CUTE!”. I could not help it, they are that darn adorable. I think that is why this styled shoot was so seamless. When you have a couple like this one, and Manya Photography to capture all the cuteness, then you have yourself some breathtaking images. You will need to grab a cup of coffee, (or two), as you will want to view these photos over and over.

Idea and inspiration behind the shoot:
The idea and inspiration came from the designer’s love for romantic, rustic and vintage details. Since Valentine’ Day was coming up, we wanted to create a romantic picnic style setting for a couple celebrating their love with each other. Simple, but full of love. Valentine’s Day seems to always be about going out to a fancy restaurant and sharing a nice dinner with a whole lot of other couples. Often, couples find going out is crowded and not as private and romantic. So instead, the idea was that we wanted to create a very intimate setting with a lovely picnic, surrounded by nature’s pretty details. This was to bring about a feeling of romance, while celebrating their love with just the two of them there. The setting? Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park. It was the perfect location to set up a picnic. We wanted to make the couple feel like they were the only ones in the middle of a gorgeous outdoor setting. The concept of the picnic was simple. We really did not want to over decorate and take away from the couple’s love for each other. We added a few items to compliment the couple’s true love. Simple does not allow for any interruptions or frills, just a romantic day with the one you love.
The main color palette for the shoot consists of neutral colors, soft blushes and ivories, and pairing them with gold.
Fashion: We wanted to stay with a Valentine’s Day theme while keeping it simple with soft fabrics and romantic details.
