Cozy and romantic were the first things that came to mind when we saw Bianca and Brad’s sweet Indiana wedding day. Taking place in southern Indiana, they chose Corner House Bed & Breakfast and Event Barn as the setting for their day, and they couldn’t have chosen a lovelier venue to celebrate.

You’re sure to love the beauty that Bret and Brandie Photography captured, and the pops of red and blush in the couple’s color palette created a simple contrast that added a fun, colorful touch throughout the design. With the sweetest details like the groom’s floral tie, the touches of burgundy in the bride’s bouquet, and beautiful rings of greenery, we love how the simplest details made such perfect statements that intertwined throughout the day.

We hope you love every detail, and you’re sure to love the statement that their head table and backdrop made in their reception style.

Editor’s Note: This post was originally published in 2016, but I’m bringing it back for this year’s Valentine’s Day! Enjoy! :) 

If you’re anything like me, Valentine’s Day tends to sneak up on you, and before you know it, it’s impossible to get dinner reservations anywhere or make any semblance of plans. Add in that the weekend surrounds the day of love, and you pretty much can’t even think about going out. Because the aforementioned situation is typically what my husband, Schuyler, and I experience, we had the idea a few years ago to do a little “DIY Dinner Date” inspiration shoot. As it turns out, even years later (5 I think?) it’s still super popular, and so I tricked talked my husband into doing another DIY Dinner Date this year!

Valentines Day DIY Dinner Date via TheELD.com

Our goal with this feature was to make it as easy to replicate as possible- hence the “DIY”. Feathered Heart Prints created some printable placecards, menus, and gifts that you can print on your own. The amazing Amber Veatch Designs created a tablescape using store-bought tulips and items that we sourced at Target or via our own collection of things around the house, and Tara Mc Photography captured all of it perfectly! Food blogger Casa de Crews created an easy dessert recipe for us, and you can find all of the recipes and the link to the printables at the end of this post!

I’m particularly excited about this feature, because it will mark the start of a new DIY Dinner Date series here on ELD, in which we will share some of the recipes that Schuyler and I cook together at home on a regular basis. We’re pretty passionate about food and it’s become a big part of our marriage (we joke about how grocery shopping together is our weekly date), and we want to be able to pass that passion along to all of you to hopefully infuse into your own relationships and marriages too. We want to encourage couples- dating, engaged, and married- to spend time together cooking dinner, making a whole date night out of the activity!  I’ve shared a little more about the new feature at the end of the post, so be sure to get to the end to find out more!

(Disclaimer: Neither of us are trained chefs or professional food bloggers. Our recommendations are solely based on our own experiences. Oh, and also, full disclosure that the photos were not taken at our own house- they were taken at my parents’ house, who have a much nicer, larger kitchen! And another thing- we totally were not planning on being photographed, so you’re getting us in pretty real form here!)

An elegant Jacksonville wedding with artful touches and a deep color palette of navy blue and red created a lovely evening for Liane and Delza’s wedding day. Set at the The Cummer Museum, they exchanged their vows in the garden, overlooking the St. Johns River, and J’Adore Studios captured the mood and beautiful design created by G.G. Events. The floral design by Parker’s Events softened the look by incorporating ivory, burgundy, and hints of dusty rose, while DJ Jacob Towe‘s rose projections covering the walls of the gallery space created a huge impact in the design, creating a beautiful statement backdrop for the bride and groom. We think you’re definitely going to enjoy every perfect detail this team of vendors created for this couple’s wedding day!

We love how this couple’s wedding day style was completely transformed through lighting and projections adding great texture and a cool artistic style to their reception space.

Would you consider large scale environmental projections as part of your wedding design?

An air of romantic elegance was brought to life with soft rose, pops of red, and feminine textures that made this garden wedding look absolutely perfect. EVENTful Moments pulled together a stellar team of vendors that created a web of intentional details that added depths and layers to the design in the most beautiful of ways.

The bride wore a form-fitted gown from LaineeMeg Bridal, adorned with lace detailing and the perfect pop of sparkle in her jewelry. Her bold red lip and side swept hair made for a fun and flirty combo, perfect choices for the overall design of the day.

The table design was a favorite detail of ours. Mixing colors and textures and layering decor made for an elegant design that felt so effortless and elegant. Touches of marble, chiffon, velvet, and stone were perfectly accented with silver details, and the red taper candles provided a romantic ambiance for guests to gather. And we love that they chose to bring in a pop of dusty pink and red into the floral design, which provided a colorful contrast to the lush greenery of the garden elements.

We hope you enjoy every detail Lloyd Photographers captured of this pink and red inspiration as we lead into a week of romance to celebrate the approaching Valentine’s day!

We love the sophistication and romance that this team pulled together, and this was such a beautiful way to add a pop of red without feeling overwhelmed by such a bold color choice.

Are you planning on incorporating touches of red in your wedding design?
