"With This Ring" | A Valentine's Day Proposal on a rock candy stick

Where did the past month go? They seem to be flying by, but I'm really excited to share with you this months round of Wedding Vendor Challenges. It's been one year this month since I started the challenges and I have an amazing collection of photo shoots to share with you starting today thru next Friday with a special Valentine's Day giveaway on Tuesday {you won't want to miss this one, there will be 5 winners}. The color palette this month was fuchsia and black and our first challenge comes to us from Madeline's Weddings and Events and Michelle Zerr Photography in Canada. The theme was an intimate dinner for two and I love how Madeline interpreted that theme by putting together a proposal. They had a 2 person table set up and the linens consisted of fuchsia satin floor length linens, a fuchsia organza overlay, a black satin table runner, black satin chair covers and matching black satin napkins. So elegant and romantic . . .

A “With This Ring” card was created that rested at the bride’s place setting and the engagement ring was placed on top of a rock candy swizzle stick. So cute and sweet!!!

The beautiful stationery was bright, fun and flirty.! The place cards are super cute and read “the lovely bride” & “the happy groom”! And, as is customary with Madeline's stationery, there was matching menus and the stationery carried over into the dessert table as well.

The centerpiece was simple and was comprised of white chrysanthemums floating in water. Madeline and her team surrounded the cylinder vases with votive candles.

The entire set-up was in a canopy, so the ‘couple’ could have a secluded and closed off area for their special evening. Fuchsia panels of fabric and fuchsia spotlighting was included too.

The dessert table was fabulous and made use of a black pintuck linen with a fuchsia satin table runner. And, there was everything from mini brownies, cookies, strawberry marshmallows and of course cinnamon hearts for the Valentine's spread.

Thank you so much Madeline and Michelle for an amazing shoot to start off our February Wedding Vendor Challenges with. I'll be back on Monday with more . . .
