Love is in the Air: A Valentine's & Galentine's Day Photo Shoot Bash

Love is in the Air: A Valentine's & Galentine's Day Photo Shoot Bash

Hey there, lovebirds and squad goals extraordinaires!

Get ready to feel the love as we bring you the ultimate Valentine's and Galentine's Day photo shoot bash right in the heart of downtown San Diego! Teaming up with some seriously talented local creatives, we've curated an event at the fabulous Julep Venue that's all about spreading those good vibes and capturing those picture-perfect moments.

Let's dive in and soak up the love!

Our design and planning game was off the charts! Picture this: two gorgeous color palettes, one bursting with blushes, pinks, and reds for that "I Love You Like XO" vibe, and the other oozing lilac, blush, and cream goodness for that "Sweet Love" feeling. Drawing inspiration from iconic love songs by our favorite female artists, we set the scene for a night of pure romance and nostalgia. It was like stepping into a dreamland of love and enchantment!

Of course there were bounce houses involved! Because why not add a sprinkle of fun? The bounce house(s) and soft play activation were the perfect entertainment, giving everyone a chance to bounce, giggle, and get those Insta-worthy shots that scream, "Squad Goals!"


Slaying the table game with elegance and style! Our tables were decorated with Insta-worthy details, adorable tableware, and floral centerpieces that had everyone saying, "Oh, la la!" No really - they were STUNNING. Blooms, blooms, and more blooms! These bouquets and arrangements were straight out of a fairytale. Romance? Check!


Cue the drool-worthy desserts! Cotton candy clouds, heavenly cakes, mouthwatering cupcakes, and all the mini sweets you could dream of. Dessert heaven, anyone? From custom placemats to personalized touches, we made sure every detail was on point. Because life's too short for basic, right?


We took nostalgia to a whole new level with our decor, bringing back all those feels and warm fuzzies. How adorable are the cocktail toppers and personalized guest favors? Love was truly in the air, and it was contagious!

Huge shoutout to our amazing squad of local small business creatives who helped make this dream a reality! Be sure to hit them up on their social handles for more deets on their awesomeness.


Now, as the confetti settles, we're left with one thing: memories that'll last a lifetime. Thanks for joining us on this epic journey of love, laughter, and everything in between.

Until next time, keep spreading those good vibes and remember: love is always the answer!

Catch you next love season.
