I have stacks and stacks of typical Valentine images: doily envelopes, heart-shaped sugar cubes, chocolate chocolate chocolate and pink pink pink. And I could not bring myself to make that kind of board. I have no problem with sweet handmade paper goods, and you know I don’t have a problem with chocolate. But to be perfectly honest, Valentine’s Day isn’t really my thing. I prefer my love and romance year-round, expressed in small ways daily and surprising ways unexpectedly. But that’s just me, and I knew I couldn’t get away with ignoring Valentine’s Day, of all things, on a wedding blog. So here is a chic, modern, romantic inspiration board for you for Valentine’s Day. May you give and receive lots of love today, and everyday.

Mood: chic romance
Palette: ivory, champagne, black, red
