We’ve got a little something sweet for you just in time for Valentine’s Day! Inspired by one her engaged couples and their heart-fluttering love story, Los Angeles event planner Hylah White set out to create a swoon-worthy collection of photos depicting their fairytale. From real love notes between the couple re-written in calligraphy, to decadent Bottega Louie cakes and sweets, this romantic Chanel-inspired shoot is filled with beautiful details showing how sweet it is to be loved and to love.
“I was inspired to tell Rachel & Brian’s love story through a series of photos taken by Anna Delores Photography. When they first met, Rachel had plans to move across the country in just a few short days. Brian knew he couldn’t just let her go without trying. During the first six months of their courtship, Brian would mail love letters to Rachel, making it impossible for Rachel not to fall head over heels in love with him.
Brian’s love letters reminded me of Coco Chanel’s Classic Flap Bag. Under the top flap, there is a little secret zipper compartment, and, as the story goes, Coco had this secret spot made to stash her special love letters. Swoon!
We had a tasty assortment of tartlets from Bottega Louie for the couple to enjoy while sipping on champagne and cheersing to their love. Seniman Calligraphy wrote out one of Brian’s love letters and she also wrote in calligraphy on Macarons from Bottega Louie, emphasizing how sweet it is to be loved and to love. All these lovely details told a love story told within a love story.” – Event Designer, Hylah White
