Now that you’ve hopefully eaten more conversation hearts than you can count, it’s time to cap off the Valentine’s festivities with an engagement that fully embraces today’s official color theme: pink on pink on pink. Set in historic Savannah, these lovies sought out the neighborhood’s prettiest backdrops and Rach Loves Troy came along to capture. Head to The Vault and let the lovefest continue.

From Rach Loves Troy… Danielle and Josh are recent transplants to Savannah from Central Florida. They moved here after falling in love with Savannah after many visits. Danielle loves all the little quirks and historic beauty of our downtowns beauty. When I asked her what she wanted in an engagement session she wanted quintessential Savannah with a touch of glam! When Danielle told me she would be wearing a floor length tulle skirt I knew we were on the right track. Throw in these two and their adorably fun personalities and the Savannah streets lit up at night and we had it.

From Mum’s Flowers… We worked closely with Goldfinch Events & Design on this modern styled shoot last spring. The overall theme of the shoot was a Kate Spade inspired color pop with bright citrus florals set against black and white stripes. For the bouquet we chose a punchy mix of our favorite spring blooms such as coral charm peonies with their variegated coral to peach petals and bright yellow centers. To add texture we pulled in berries and hellebore with a touch of maiden hair fern to soften.
When designing our bridal bouquets, we often ask to see a photo of the bride’s gown so that we can better determine the overall shape and size of the bouquet. In this case, the model was wearing a gorgeous Alvina Valenta ballgown with a very large and flowy skirt. So although the model was quite petite, we were able to make a larger, fuller bouquet with asymmetric movement and trailing greens to follow the lines of the dress. And we finished it all off with fluttering ribbons to match in crisp black and shades of pink.

From Lark & Linen… I’m of the variety that looks for any and every excuse to celebrate. The one thing you’re guaranteed to find in my fridge at any given moment is a chilled bottle of champagne. I mean, you never really know when the need (or urge) to pop some bubbles will strike, and if I’ve learnt anything from those boyscouts it’s that one needs to be prepared at all times. I came to the realization long ago that we’re only here for a brief moment in time, so we’d better make the most of it while we’re able!
I know that Valentine’s day gets a bit of a bad wrap amongst some, but if you ask me, it’s just another excuse to consciously celebrate all of the relationships in your lives – romantic and otherwise. I adore my boyfriend, that goes without saying, but my girlfriends hold such a special place in my heart – one that could never be fulfilled by anyone else, and making them a priority is a must. So when my friend Gaby (http://www.thevaultfiles.com) approached me about putting together a Valentine’s Day afternoon tea party for the girls, it was a bit of a no brainer.
Sweet treats, delicious eats, incredible cocktails, warm tea, and all things over-the-top-girly were abundant. Basically? It was the best way to spend an afternoon. If you have a chance to throw your own mini Galentine’s day party, I highly recommend it. With photos hailing straight from Heidi Lau‘s lens, and florals done by none other than Blush & Bloom, it was a dream from beginning to end.
