featured:: relish magazine valentine's editorial shoot

Happy Valentine's Day week!!!! I love love love the holiday of love (red and pink are my faves, dark chocolate is my jam, and I'm all about the frou-frou, of course). This year I got to celebrate a little early by designing five gorgy tablescapes for any lovely layperson to recreate for a fab V Day night in! Who really wants to spend a billion dollars on a crowded chain restaurant dinner and get a box of chalky chocolates? Not this lady! 

Instead, I'd be totally happy with any of these lovely layouts, designed by yours truly and featured on the delightful Relish blog.

Poodles and Paris and pinks, oh my!

romantic bloomsbury farm elopement shoot

This pink-and-red winter elopement shoot was loosely inspired by a childhood novel retelling the story of Beauty & the Beast.  Instead of the traditional concept of a courthouse elopement, we strove to evoke a romantic outdoor setting for a wedding for two -- complete with marriage vows spoken over a glorious overlook, a first dance as husband and wife beneath strung lights in a grove of cedars, as well as a dinner of cake and champagne. A Belle-inspired fuchsia bridal capelet also provides a pop of color against the natural woods and a beautiful alternative to the winter wedding fur stole or shawl. Bloomsbury Farm, located just South of Nashville, Tennessee, provided the perfect locale for an intimately sweet affair.
