Picture it – the most romantic day of the year, a dinner date for two, starting off with a walk through the charming historic downtown. Your date takes your hand and leads you to a private patio dressed up as a quaint Paris street cafe – a charming bar cart serving rosé cocktails under a black and white striped awning, a neon heart and dessert charcuterie board setting the scene for romance. What could be more perfect for a surprise Valentine’s Day Proposal? This utterly charming couple’s shoot by Stephanie Lanni Photography and Blooming Flower Art has all of that and more, bringing the perfect pink vibes to a celebration of love!
Nothing sets the scene for a romantic Valentine’s Day proposal better than a love letter! Even if the get-down-on-one-knee part is a surprise, it can heighten the excitement to write out your feelings ahead of time. This exquisite blush and gold stationery design by Invitations by Whitney captures vintage French romance with a gorgeous floral print and botanical illustrations on handmade paper. The rose gold and morganite engagement ring – well, that’s just icing on the cake!
