A Valentine's Day Elopement

February 5, 2015
If you think that you've seen it all when it comes to Valentine's Day inspiration, I kindly invite you to take a look at this beauty of a shoot! What stands out to me most is the unique color palette which pairs muted neutrals with soft pinks. Not to mention the vintage inspired details, and that cake! Oh, that cake! Can we all just take a second to look at this cake. So super cute, if you ask me!

With design and styling by Captivatingly Chic Celebrations and photography by  Lauren Halvorson Photography, I'm instantly swept away to a place where love letters are signed with X's and O's and the beautiful scent of flowers fill the air.

From the photographer, "for this shoot I teamed up with Cristen of Captivatingly Chic! We had a vision of a soft, flirty Valentine's Day elopement all inspired by the incredible necklace that you will find featured in the shoot! The couple that we featured aren't just models. They're a real couple and they are just as in love today as they were on the day they said, "I do."

Hi Christine!! The color is a darker shade of blush with some peach undertones! The dress is actually a STEAL from Forever21! You may be able to find the exact dress at their store, or one made of a similar fabric to match the color! Good Luck! -Lauren

Lauren Halvorson Photography said...

Hi Caleigh! The dress is from Forever21! Can you believe it!?! We purchased it a little over a year ago, so they may not have the exact dress anymore, but I'm sure you can find something similar if not! :) Good luck, and thank you for all your kind words!

Lauren Halvorson Photography said...

Hi Cris! I'm so glad you love the necklace! Both Cristen (the stylist I teamed up with for this shoot) and myself purchased this necklace for our own wardrobes once we found it! It's from ALDO, and is remarkably affordable! We really believe in styling shoots that are within the reach of EVERYONE'S budget, and hope you can get your hands on this necklace and wear it for many years to come! The store manager at Aldo told us that they come out with different colors of this necklace in different seasons, so you bet we will be back there this fall to see what colors they share!
