We've all been there, scrolling through the photos on your phone on every birthday and anniversary to find a decent photo of the two of you together...and then reluctantly settling for a way outdated selfie. Well, that all stops now! Maybe you're engaged and have already had your engagement shoot, maybe you've been married a while now, or maybe you're still dating...whatever your relationship status is, take this inspiration shoot as a sign that you and your S.O. should dress up and schedule a Valentine's Day photoshoot! Everyone struggles with what to do on Valentine's Day. Instead of exchanging gifts, invest in photos that you will cherish for a lifetime...plus, it'll give you a reason to get all dressed up before you go out on the town for dinner and drinks.
CM Planification dreamed up a fun Valentine's Day inspiration shoot that's got it all–red and pink macarons, confetti, flirty dresses, and of course, champagne! And forget drug-store flowers, they went all-in on a professional arrangement from the talented À la vie au vert. Pinepalm Wedding let the couple relax and play in the fun environment that the team created for them and captured these adorable candids and detail shots.

The concept for this shoot was to create a happy, romantic Valentine’s Day vibe for a fun-loving couple who wanted to celebrate their love in a unique style, overflowing with love, fun, and confetti. CM Planification planned every detail of this Valentine’s Day-inspired shoot and Pinepalm Wedding was present to perfectly capture the vibe of the day. Our models Mylene and Yoan have been best friends since they were 8 years old. They were the perfect fit for this vision. The celebration started with champagne and the more-than-perfect desserts made by the talented bakery Chocolata. We opted for a chic floral arrangement with a hint of punch. We left the creation of this beautiful arrangement in the hands of À la vie au vert who used eucalyptus, carnations, roses, and a few dried flowers to give it the perfect touch!
The beautiful gowns came from Château de la mariée Nadia. To complement the look and feel of this super romantic Valentine’s Day shoot, we chose two different styles. The first gown was in this oh-so-perfect vibrant cherry-red color–a color that screams passion, love, and romance. Last but not least, we finished it off with this adorable all-pink sparkly dress–a dress that brought a very playful and fun touch to the vibe of the shoot. Maxine Gauthier, the makeup artist for the event, was able to create two makeup looks that perfectly matched both ensembles for the day. The first look was more romantic and simple with a touch of red lipstick. The second style was more radiant and shiny to match perfectly with the sparkling personality of Mylène. We want couples to remember to take the time to celebrate love, make every moment magical, and don't forget to pop the champagne!!!
