galentines day brunch inspiration || dallas/fort worth wedding photographer


"what's galentine's day? oh it's only the best day of the year. every february 13th, my lady friends and i leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. ladies celebrating ladies. It's like lilith fair, minus the angst. plus frittatas."- leslie knope, parks and recreation

grab your best girlfriends and eat some waffles, because today is galentine's day! parks and rec is one of my all time favorite shows, and i had been wanting to do a styled shoot based on the show for a while! 

i worked with megan and caitlin of celebrate dallas to put together this shoot, and they were such rockstars. we had an all female vendor team, in honor of galentine's, and it was so cool being around such strong ladies for this shoot. 

we chose a pink, purple and red color palette, with some accents of gold, for some sparkle! there was an awesome sweets bar (because leslie knope loves her some sweets!) and a fabulous balloon garland, that megan and caitlin made! (#talent)

the invitation suite is so perfectly done by sarah ann designs, i literally squealed when i saw it.  it miiiiight still be sitting on my shelf, i love it so much. 

styling by macey did the fabulous hair (uh hello, look at that braid!!), while erika curry brought some softness with her beautiful makeup. the dresses were from lovely bride, and i loved how simple and classic they were! 

our models were all former dallas cowboys cheerleaders and were PROS in front of the camera. they had been friends for years, so it was a good way to celebrate their friendship, as well. 

so enjoy our valentine's celebration, and make sure to tell your girl gang how much you love and appreciate them today! <3
