Isn’t she darling? That’s Jamie, who Bliss Events enlisted alongside her guy Christopher (and their cute Pomeranian Foxy) to establish a little Valentine’s Day chemistry for a shoot that just so happened to be totally inspired by a donut. They set up camp in the fresh white space at downtown Boise’s The Owyhee and got to crafting a spirited shoot that was “urban, young, and fun”. Spoiler alert: they nailed all three. Ampersand Studios couldn’t have been a better fit, judging by the festive images below!
Paperie + Pen dreamed up the modern paper pieces you’ll see throughout…
Bliss Events made sure flowers were arranged through all the rigid shapes to soften the modern edges. Balance is key!
Lindsey of Bliss Events explains, The design board centered around one hugely important element… doughnuts! A white, frosted doughnut with colored sprinkles became the reference point from which all future design choices would be made. Neutral backgrounds and “sprinkles” of carefully chosen hues would build the youthful look we wanted, without bombarding the viewer with color. Tribute was paid to our beloved “Gem State” with crystal candle votives and geodes, whose subtle sparkle was repeated in the sweets table (complete with rock candy, of course!).
Lindsey concludes… Confetti poppers, sugar rimmed drinks, fringed balloons, and DIY piñata letters added elements of whimsy, but Love couldn’t help but be the focus when sunset fell. As our couple posed with the setting sun behind them, showered in the colors that had inspired the day, we were reminded that all of the planning and pinning ultimately leads to that beautiful moment where two people choose nothing but one another; and love each other more than… sprinkles.
Morning cakies! Are you enjoying all the festive Valentine’s Day posts floating around blog world right now? Fun fun fun. Photographers and stylists Jessica + Annmarie of Boudoirathon recently launched their boudoir business dedicated to empowering women and helping them feel comfortable and beautiful in their skin. What better way to do that than get all dolled up for a Valentine’s Day sesh? The girls gathered a team together at Paisley & Jade (who also supplied the rentals) and the v-day fun began!
Can this floral wall just be ours forever?
Annmarie says, We knew we needed a planner that could bring the perfect elements for us: light and airy florals paired with bold black and white stripes. With our brand being girly, flirty, and fun, Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events styled two completely different settings, flawlessly executed the floral design for us, and tied in the most incredible details.
Katherine Elizabeth Bridal designed and crafted a custom lingerie collection just for the shoot. Each piece contributed to the luxurious and intimate vibes of the setting. Loving this floral pattern, mhmm!
It’s easy to think of a black and gold color palette as reserved exclusively for NYE parties, but Amber Lynn Photography + the ladies behind this shoot knew there wasn’t a better way to kick off a new year than with your love, so why not combine the two vibes? The romance of an intimate wedding paired with the glitz and the glam that is New Years? An unlikely combo with srsly gorgeous results…
They were inspired by blacks, gold, sparkles, and a little bubbly for the details. And a sultry mani to top it all off…
E-flowers whipped up the loveliest wild looking florals for the tabletop and bouquet to display alongside pinecones and gold décor.
Just peeking at the cobblestone exterior of one of the buildings at This is The Place Heritage Park, we can tell what a beauty this venue would be for those of you scouting Salt Lake City! Just a thought…
Sweet ‘n simple with a little bit of luxe.
Thanks to Amber Lynn for sending this shoot our way… Lots of details here for 2015 weddings!
