Timeless & Romantic Wedding Inspiration

Inspiration Shoots

Seasons of Love – Spring Dating

Photography - Emily Broadbent

Today I have the first in a super sweet trio of inspiration shoots to share with you. This series, called ‘Seasons of Love’, captures everything that makes you swoon about vintage love in a modern world. I will be publishing them consecutively over the course of the week, and whilst individually they are beautifully inspiring, each showcasing a different stage of a romance, together they tell the complete story of love – from the very first date to the happily ever after….

Seasons of Love Spring Dating - Flower Truck

Beginning with the earliest season of love, the dating season, captured in the essence of Spring. New love is blossoming and it’s exciting and fresh. Light colors, a nod to vintage in the clothing and makeup, and a classic St. Louis backdrop complete this beginning…..

Here are a few more words about ‘Spring’ from photographer Emily Broadbent….. “For our dating location, we chose a beautiful park in downtown St. Louis, with The Arch strategically located behind our gorgeous couple. This shows the beginning of their love story: St. Louis, MO.

They are a couple with a modern vintage vibe – from the red hair of our leading lady to the classic romantic picnic. We wanted to showcase the newness of their love with fresh flowers, light colors and a chic backdrop.”


Isn’t it lovely?? Be sure to check back later in the week to see the second part to this series – the proposal!

In the meantime a huge thankyou to the wonderful creatives who took the time to imagine and bring to life such a beautiful story. Especially to photographer Emily Broadbent who captured love and Spring so eloquently.
