50 Shades of Grey Inspired Galentine's Day Gala

What's modern and edgy and all kinds of gorgeous? Say hello to today's 50 Shades of Grey inspired Galentine's Day Gala with florals by Enchantment Floral and event design by Party Crush Studio and d.Royal Engagements! Captured beautifully by Cari Courtright Photography, this pretty party had us at hello!

From Jeanette of Party Crush Studio, "For months, I have been working on my newest table linen collection and I just knew I wanted to share it with my amazing wedding pro-tribe."

"So what better way than to host a Galentine's Champagne Party! The concept for this shoot originated from my love of Valentine's Day and the team's obsession with the novel Fifty Shades of Grey."
