Valentine’s Day Surprise

Looking for a way to ask your besties to be in your wedding party?

Cake designer, pastry chef, and stylist, Caitlin Elaine of Cakelaine, describes the inspiration behind this Valentine’s inspired shoot and unique way to ask your best friends to be part of your wedding party.

“This romantic Valentine’s brunch inspiration came together with delicate pinks and greenery, bubbly, and of course; confetti! Captured perfectly by Crystal Hahn Photography.

Our newly engaged host invites her girlfriends over for a mid morning Valentine’s celebration with all of the fun girly details you’d expect. She did have a surprise in store for her guests, though!

Amidst a lovely brunch display, hung a custom balloon installation by Sugargirlee adorned with florals by Ashley Elaine. Among our table scape are pink vintage goblets, contrasted along modern charger plates and cutlery by Plate Occasions. After brunch, the girls blow up their balloons and pop them to reveal a message they’d been waiting for. These lovely hand lettered messages by Love Lettering pair water colours and intense gold. Basking in confetti, the girls celebrated together, becoming new bridesmaids!

An intimate sized sweet table (on a bar cart!) holds hand painted macarons, cupcakes, pop tarts and cake; all v-day ready! Water colour painted cookies matching the stationery, are displayed on the bar cart as well.
I hoped to create a fun filled shoot that will leave you with a smile on your face, and inspire fun loving small celebrations of all kinds.”
