Modern Valentine’s Day Wedding Shoot. Inspired by modern themes of Valentine’s Day, this styled shoot at Upper Shirley Vineyards in Charles, City, Va, is sweet and sophisticated. Romantic accents, expressive blooms, and blush undertones make this inspired shoot one to love. The paper pieces are classic with a twist. Unique gray parchment includes modern gold calligraphy for notes of antiquity and elegance.
The head table offers a pink presentation. A blush pink linen features a white table runner. Place settings include white china, traditional flatware, and modern stemware with a blush-colored drink.
A statement centerpiece rests on the table with an array of florals such as various types of roses and stephanotis, along with berries, cabbage, and interesting greenery.
A clean and crisp two-tier cake features an all-white appearance with the subtle placement of flowers on the sides. The white cake stand and white table linen make this a seamless sweet treat.
Then, the designers add an adorable wooden “X” and “O” to the cake stand for a nod to the day of love.
The impeccable engagement ring, a stunning marquise cut, echoes the gold script from the paper suite.
Another place setting idea for guests’ seating includes pairing white china with black trays for an eye-popping contrast. A small place card featuring a black design brings it all together.
Dark chivari pairs are placed alongside the blush-colored table for a gorgeous balance of light and dark. The table runner echoes this theme with a marbled look that can’t be missed.
Two petite floral arrangements are placed down the center of the table, showcasing roses, black and white anemones, and Queen Anne’s lace to name a few.
A final shot shows a bride dressed in a black lace dress, seated at a now all-black table that is alluring and chic.
This modern Valentine’s Day wedding shoot is a captivating examination of how small tweaks and changes in your celebration’s appearance can transform its look. Incorporating a few different styles and ideas can keep the look fresh and interesting. After all, romance looks different through everyone’s eyes.
