If pretty-pink-princess-style weddings are so not your taste, you’ll love today’s styled shoot. We love the sleek, glamorous black-and-white vibe, and the venue – a hotel located in Colorado Springs’ turn-of-the-century commodities exchange building – has so much character. We love the modern ceremony backdrop, the centerpieces dripping with crystals, and the black-tie inspired place settings.

On this very special holiday, the team at WeddingWire is so excited to bring you a Valentine’s Day-themed fashion shoot. With the help of Watters, Allison & Chris Britton Photography, and Blend, we staged a photo shoot right here in our offices featuring our staffers as models. Inspired by current runway trends, and the classic hues of Valentine’s Day – pinks, reds, and corals – we selected wedding dresses and bridesmaid styles that would be totally perfect for a V-Day wedding – or for any other time of the year. And boy, did our models have fun wearing them!

Take a peek at our first WeddingWire fashion shoot here, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Peach and Gray Rooftop Style Shoot in Massachusetts

Posted by Caitlin on Feb 12, 2013

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.
