As part of our Valentine’s Day week of inspiration, we thought this peach and gray rooftop styled shoot would spark some romance. Elegant yet modern, it’s filled with pops of color, details such as “tears of joy” tissue packets and not to mention, a lounge complete with cigars and martinis. The venue not only offers beautiful backdrops for photographs but a feel of intimacy midst the bustling city landscape. Fall in love with one look:

Incorporating hearts into your wedding decor can be tricky business. Going too overboard can cause your wedding to look like a second-grade classroom adorned for Valentine’s Day. But a few carefully chosen hearts can add just the right amount of sweet and whimsy to your celebration. Check out some of our favorite heart-shaped ideas for your wedding decor.
Bouquet: If you’re feeling bold, a bouquet made entirely of hearts and feathers packs a contemporary punch.
Programs: The red-and-pink ombre chevron pattern elevates these heart-shaped ceremony programs into true works of art.
Mirror: A vintage-inspired frame with a cheeky heart drawing serves as a fun backdrop for an escort card or dessert table.
Topiary: We love the contrast of the heart’s femininity and the natural, almost edgy-looking, moss. Hang from the ceiling or on the doors to your ceremony venue.
Dress: Mix sexy and sweet with this Hayley Paige gown, featuring a heart-shaped cutout in back.

This week at WeddingWire HQ, snow fell along with a mix of warmer weather in between, (crazy, right?) and so this style shoot is making us dream a little too much about spring. If you’re searching for both glamour and romance for your wedding, this is absolutely for you! It’s filled with luscious, pink roses draped with pearls and candles that set the mood. The antique furniture that adds an extra rustic touch and the unique cupcake stands are totally a must-have. Take a look:
You can find inspiration for your wedding theme and decor anywhere – and we mean anywhere. You can even look to your favorite addictive app for ideas. Yes, you read that right – a group of talented North Carolina vendors created wedding decor completely inspired by Angry Birds. A few of our favorite details from this – the slingshot pens, the adorable cake pops, the abundance of feathers and eggs (check out those nest escort cards!), and the colorful origami ceremony backdrop. It’s witty and whimsical – but feels modern and, yes, even romantic all the same. Would you create a wedding like this? Let us know in the comments!
