Hope you guys got flowers this pretty on Valentine’s Day! This Southern California wedding shoot was built off designer Danae Grace Events’ desire not just to create something based off of all the wedding trends she sees come and go, but that would make an impact in the long run. She explains, As a designer, you see trends coming and going. What I love to create and design is a timeless look with unique details that not only encompasses the vision of my clients but inspires others. We can get behind that. Shout out to Diana Marie Photography for the lovely photos!

Danae wanted to strike a balance between in-season foliage and a vintage-industrial style. She also knew the grand essence of protea would make a statement in the arrangements. And a statement they make! Looove.

Danae tells us, We used Eventful Rentals’ industrial styled table but softened the look with their vintage, tufted/upholstered chairs with fur throws to accent. Margaret Joan Florals pulled my vision to life as she found vases and holders that are in fact from the industrial era and completed the entire look.

Paris elopement | Photo by Katie Mitchell Photography | 100 Layer Cake

Guys, this Paris elopement totally just brightened our day for so many reasons. The bride and her friend Jaimi are both in the SoCal beauty biz, running Fiore Beauty, making it easy (and fun) to get all dolled up. Then there’s the fact that Jaimi’s gown ended up being Janel’s dream dress. And to make it all happen in Paris: Chris has family in Luxembourg, so it was an easy decision to get married nearby, have the honeymoon, and visit fam he hadn’t seen in years. Beautiful, right? Now, onto the pretty photos Katie Mitchell Photography sent our way…

Janel tells it, My dress was the most special and sweetest surprise! When I started describing the type of dress I would like with Jaimi, she said “That sounds like my wedding dress!”  Her dress was a gorgeous, Japanese silk custom mermaid-style gown. Shortly after our dress talk, she brought out a huge box with her wedding dress in it and said I should take it and make it my own! I was so touched and honored by her lovely gift, along with the sentiment behind the dress. I was lucky enough to have the original dress designers alter the dress, adding a slightly sexy french flair. It was also fun that Jaimi would be the one to help me get in my dress (“our” dress).

The Jardin du Luxembourg makes for quite the lovely elopement backdrop, no? Plus, photog Katie Mitchell knew all the locations to get the best shots.

C + J decided on an elopement when they realized a lot of family and friends wouldn’t be able to join the overseas festivities. Their good friends Matt + Jaimi love traveling to Paris, and were thrilled to be witnesses + companions for the big day. Janel says, From there, everything just seemed to fall in place. Sounds like it!

After our ceremony and pictures we dined at Le Coupe-Chou, a charmingly romantic restaurant we found on a walk the day before. The food was delicious the ambiance help set the mood and everyone there was so nice, it was the perfect ending to a magical day!

Congrats you two!

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day inspiration | Photo by  Michele Hart Photography | Design and Styling Lexy Ward of PROPER | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/valentines-day-inspiration-1.jpg

The gals behind this shoot absolutely love Valentine’s Day because it gives everyone a chance to take a step away from their busy lives and focus on love. Who can argue with that? So in honor of this lovely holiday, Lexy of PROPER + Michele of Michele Hart Photography teamed up to shoot a real-life couple spending Valentine’s Day together. They met up with two cuties, models Maverick + Callie, whose chemistry just shines through in every photo.

Lexy says, Our lives become so busy with work and family that it’s nice to have a holiday that is all about love. When celebrating Valentine’s Day, some couples go out, and some stay in. I was so excited to work with Michele Hart of Michele Hart Photography to capture this stunning couple and their intimate day. From coffee in bed to making breakfast in the kitchen to getting dressed up for a night on the town, we wanted to share their Valentine’s Day story in a series of moments!

They started with hot cocoa and donut bites in bed…

Lexi added little floral touches throughout the house with blossoms by Flower Muse and a floral garland strung above the headboard.

A simple breakfast involving red velvet pancakes with cream cheese frosting added even more fun to the morning. Heart-shaped pancakes were created by simply placing a metal cookie cutter in the pan and pouring the batter inside. The plates were adorned with “His” & “Hers” confetti place settings and every detail was planned right down to the floral ice cubes in the orange juice!

Final thoughts from Lexi… Michele captured the day so beautifully and was able to portray the love and comfort that Maverick and Callie feel for one another! The day began and ended with a kiss.

Totally. And how great a Valentine’s Day gift is a series of photos like this?!
