Parisian Engagement Styled Shoot

I'm excited to be able to share the sweet Valentine's
styled shoot that Katie of Katie White Photography
& I pulled together a few weeks back.
It was published on Love and Lavender over the weekend
for Valentine's Day & I couldn't be more thrilled.

We originally planned to do a dramatic shoot in the snow,
with a long red gown, elegant hair & make-up
Well, as you may know
It's been sunny and in the 60's and 70's up here in the
Sierra foothills lately, so there was a change of plans.

We quickly shifted plans and created a sweet
French-inspired Valentines Proposal and Engagement Styled Shoot.
We’re lucky to live in such a picturesque town
so we chose the Broad Street Bistro and downtown Nevada City
as the backdrop for the shoot.

And how lucky were we that we got a 10 minute window for
a shot with the sweetest little vintage Riley Elf
that fit in just perfectly with our European theme!
Thanks to Erin Thiem of Outside Inn for making this happen.

The couple took a stroll about town to get an ice cream
from Treats where the sweet proposal took place.

They came back to the Bistro to celebrate with a champagne toast using our Depression Glass Coupes
& our Champagne Bucket in one of our Plant Stands.

perfect backdrop for their engagement celebration.

The bistro table was complete with our
and pretty floral hankies as napkins.

And look how sweet our Angelo Bistro Chairs look all dressed up!

 We also styled a dessert station with a simple backdrop of pretty pink tulips in Vintage Bottles and our Addison Vanity staged with an assortment of sweets.

Our Addison Vanity looking lovely overflowing with tulips!

The tulips in our Vintage Bottles hanging from twine
in front of our delicate backdrop was my favorite creation
for this shoot. It would look gorgeous behind a sweetheart table!! Check out our new  Sweetheart Table Packages.

Find a bunch more pictures in our new gallery on the website.

What an amazing group of vendors came together
to make this sweet shoot a success.
