A Valentine’s Day wedding: truly, is there anything sweeter? Here at Leonard’s Palazzo, we’re all about the love, the passion, the romance, so if it’s a little bit extra for Cupid’s occasion, then so be it! It’s not too often that the day “of love” falls on a weekend, so rarely do we have weddings scheduled for the day of, but this year, we’ve got one – and we can’t even wait to see how it plays out! What the couple will wear, what florals they’ll decide on, what sensual snacks and intoxicating sips they’ll be serving to get all of their guests drunk in love. It’s a great day to get married, and we’ve been keeping tabs on all the Valentine’s Day vibes we’ve already seen throughout the years at LP, so we’ve comprised a list of our most-loved looks.
Plus, just like New Year’s Eve weddings, Valentine’s Day weddings give all your coupled-up guests a great date night outing – complete with cocktail attire, an open bar, and a steady drumbeat of tracks (for slow and dirty dancing) to keep them up and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG.
And when they need to take a break, they can mellow out in our melt-worthy seating areas. That look just about right for our newlyweds and their sweetheart squad.
So, if you even wondered whether your crew would appreciate spending Cupid’s night out with you – they would. They SO would!
Romance in red.
We wouldn’t be lying if we said that a crimson palette was among one of our favorites here on the North Shore. Red roses will never go out of style and scattered petals on the table is always festive – but for Valentine’s Day, it’s even more appropriate.
Treats to love.
Show us someone who doesn’t immediately get 😍😍😍 at the thought of heart-shaped grilled cheese or a sweet and savory red tomato gazpacho bar, and we’ll show you someone who doesn’t love love. There are so many fun ways to get creative with a Valentine’s Day smorgasbord, and our chefs live for the culinary freedom they’re afforded for the hearts-on holiday. We’ll remind you, too, that signature “Love Potion” cocktails are always I Do dos in our book.
And no, we don’t mean Roman togas (although, we totally understand how that could work…). No, we’re thinking of bridal parties clad in colorful couture. Ladies in red or bridesmaids in blush, gentlemen decked in red velvet jackets and the littlest ones in Cupid-would-crush-for tulle, pink or red bowties.
And what’s a Valentine’s Day wedding without a kids table set up with make-your-own Valentines, stickers, stamps, and a whole lot of candy and conversation hearts? We’re game for it!
Still thinking about a date for your wedding? February 14, 2020 is on a Friday…. Just sayin’! 😉
