Isn’t love grand? We sure think so! The very best weddings are the ones that incorporate romantic details from the bride and groom’s personal love story. Whether it’s small tokens of their time spent together or a grand gesture on the dance floor—a little romance goes a long way. There are all sorts of ways to accomplish having an incredibly romantic wedding (while still remaining modern and cool!) Here’s a list of our personal favorites!
1. Start with a playful, old-fashioned engagement photo.

2. Get creative with rose petals. Line the aisle with them, scatter them on tables or even throw them in the air as you exit the church!
