The romantic aura of this styled shoot was achieved by the soft schemes of the tablescape. "Gather Design Company and I were inspired by modern romance, and we aimed to create an ambience that felt sumptuous enough for Valentine's Day, yet stylish enough for a contemporary bride,” describes Callista Osborn of Callista & Company. Lined along the long dinner table were simple, low centerpieces incorporating an array of pink and ivory blooms, which were offset by bright red garden roses. The smaller blooms and greenery helped to highlight the larger flowers – including tropical anthurium – that matched the bridal bouquet. Each bundle was placed in a round glass vase that complemented the rest of the tableware and allowed for plenty of space for seated guests. The arrangements beautifully complemented the dusty rose velvet linen, which draped beautifully onto the floor. In true Valentine’s Day spirit, the table was also adorned with candlelight in between the centerpieces and contemporary glassware – making the décor fit for a reception as well as a romantic dinner for two.
The model bride wore not one, but three gowns throughout the day to capture the versatility of the décor. “[The vendors] and I had the incredible opportunity to build an atmosphere inspired by three gorgeous Galia Lahav dresses,” Callista shares. While holding a simple bouquet of peach-toned and off-white garden roses and anthurium that complemented the other floral arrangements, the bride wore a dazzling long-sleeved gown featuring star embroidery and beading. The next gown, a light A-line dress with a plunging V-neckline and back, showcased star appliqués on shimmery tulle. The third was a beautiful off-the-shoulder gown with a corset bodice, floral appliqués, and a chapel train.
From the elegant, modern, and romantic décor to the whimsical bridal ensembles, the amorous ambience of this soirée would definitely remind any attendee of the heart-filled holiday and make for a stylish scheme in any season.
