For those of you doing some last minute Valentine’s Day planning for your loved one, here are a couple of ideas for you!
1. If your sweetheart likes sweets, treat them to a delicious V-day themed cupcake and leave it somewhere that will surprise them.
2. Make breakfast or dinner seem a bit more full of love than normal. Decorate in a cheesy way! Isn’t that what this holiday is all about?
3. The card says, “Valentine’s Night: You, Me, Couch, Kisses, Take Out, Blanket, Snuggles, Champagne, Movie, Sugar, Popcorn, Love.” — this one is self explanatory, and so cute!
4. For those of you who want to be a bit more crafty, find a wooden box (or any box will do), and decorate the outside with a ribbon (or see ideas below). Inside, tape a piece of paper on the lid with the words, “Our Love Story” inside. Have your loved one fill it over the years with cards you give each other, little notes you’ve left the other one that mean a lot, concert tickets, plane tickets, photos — whatever tells your love story!
Hadley and Dale were married this fall at one of Washington’s most exquisite wineries, Cave B Estate and Winery in the Colombia River Valley of Quincy, Washington. With hints of summer still lingering in the cool Washington air, the couple settled on a bright color palette of reds, turquoise and lime greens, to hang onto the last bits of summer and so they could remember that exact feel of the air, forever. When using the stunning Washington mountains as décor, little else is needed, however the outdoorsy couple wanted to bring every element of their beloved state to the inside reception as well, and used succulents and mosses as centerpieces, and created a custom wedding cake with a woodsy feel, donned with a birdsnest, complete with a pair of lovebirds. The bridesmaids wore floor length red flowy dresses, accented with hints of turquoise and paired next to elegantly colorful groomsmen. No ceremony at a vineyard is complete without a salut to the winery, and Dale and Hadley’s wedding was just that, with a toast of Cave B’s very own before their first kiss as a married couple The guests then celebrated into the night under the crisp Washington sky, feeling like summer and this special night would never end. – Clane, Clane Gessel Photography
