Valentine's Day Wedding Inspiration Shoot. Nothing is more classic on Valentine’s Day than a pink and red-inspired wedding and this styled shoot at the Rust Manor House and Nature Sanctuary in Leesburg, Va, is Cupid’s dream come true! Inspired by the classic line from Atticus’ poetry "He found the colors to paint her where the world had left her grey," a team of stylists sought to infuse color into this timeless venue to show how powerful love can be.
The team incorporates the art of painting in every possible shot to reflect this famous quote. Red envelopes are paired with pink watercolor RSVP cards, invitations, and save-the-dates for a love-filled presentation.
Even the bride’s coveted bauble is a gorgeous ruby with a diamond halo setting.
The flowers in the shoot are striking in color. Dark pink roses are paired with the likes of white veronica for a balance in color and texture. The bride’s bouquet is tied with stunning pink silk ribbons.
Keeping the romance alive, the bride dons glamorous heels that feature beaded straps around the foot and ankle.
And it's not just the bride who covets her accessories, the groom has some special keepsakes, as well. He can't forget to include his cologne, brown leather shoes, a bow tie, and wrist watch.
One of the prettiest bridesmaid gift boxes ever includes an array of goodies such as a candle, heart-shaped lollipops, a romantic coffee mug, roses, and perfume.
Stylists were inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year – aptly named "Greenery" - and wanted to incorporate shades of green into the ambiance. The bannister inside the Rust Manor House is accented with a swag of greenery that matches the bride’s bouquet. The last step is embellished with a tall taper candle, pillar candle, and various vases filled with the statement blooms. It’s a simple way to infuse a wealth of fresh color.
The bride and groom stand at the ready on the steps. He dons a dark tuxedo with his colorful bow tie. She clutches the bouquet as she shows off her strapless sweetheart gown.
Standing on the next to last step, one can see the detail in the bride’s gown, fashioned with innumerable embellishments for a romantic look.
The couple stroll down the front walk of the Rust Manor House, with its whitewashed vision serving as a timeless backdrop.
The fireplace is decorated with ample greenery, gold accents, flowers, and candles in front of a grand gold mirror.
The groom waits in the front of the room as the bride walks up the simple but sweet petal-strewn aisle.
She dons a traditional veil that pools at the train of her skirt and he offers an affectionate gesture with a kiss on the forehead.
The ceremony scene even includes a painting to reflect the inspirational quote that served as the catalyst for the theme.
What a darling dessert table, indeed! A two-tier wedding cake features a watercolor pink base and white top tier dotted with gold leaf. Cupid’s arrow strikes down the front, anchored with a floral embellishment. It’s all displayed on a charming white table decorated with flowers.
The reception table is a natural table left uncovered with the exception of flowers. Place settings include ornate chargers with pink and red china and teacups, and vintage cocktail glasses.
From behind the shadow of a plush floral arrangement, the couple sit down to enjoy their sophisticated celebration in a transformed room where their ceremony took place.
When you’re in love, your world fills with color. This Valentine's Day wedding inspiration presents a hearty dose of color in a romantic and bright way that evokes feelings of warmth and tenderness. The classic venue and equally classic additions reimagine this coveted day of love into a beautiful wedding vision.
