If a picture speaks a thousand words, a love letter speaks a thousand more. It's one of the many reasons the art of writing a love letter as romantic wedding inspiration appeals to us. In a world of texting, emojis, brief phone calls, old fashioned letter writing seems to have sadly takes a bow and disappeared in our everyday lives. To us nothing ignites a slow burn kind of passion more than putting pen to paper expressing the spectrum of our emotions. Fanning the flames of a toe curling romance. Think about all the romance novels or movies us romantics adore losing ourselves in. From Message in a Bottle to The Notebook and of course the tearjerker chick flick, P.S. I Love You, in which luxury wedding planner Alicia C. Creative, her assistant Dela Planning and Moose Studios found their muse. In the power of a love letter. Lori Phillips Photography tells today's story from behind the lens as it unfolds at the magnificent Marbella Country Club in San Juan Capistrano in this gorgeous gallery.

The idea of showcasing the art of writing a love letter as romantic wedding inspiration couldn't be timelier. If you haven't heard the news, Cecelia Ahern's new novel and anticipated sequel, Postscript, was finally released last week. And along with the book came the news that the sequel is, indeed, going to be made into a movie with Hilary Swank reprising her role as Holly. Cue the excitement and this stunner that gives a nod to the art of writing a love letter. Rich shades of mustard, emerald green, charcoal grey, burnt orange, and copper all come together in a beautiful color blend ripe for the fall season. The more vivid tones work beautifully against the neutral space of the country club's cream exterior. Peonies and Petals play a vital role throughout the design. From the ceremony to the tabletop to the exquisite headpiece and cake. Show stopping blooms mixing sweet peas, roses and unripe raspberries are used. Just as important as the floral is of course The Letter J Creates Calligraphy. What good would the art of writing a love letter as romantic wedding inspiration be without giving it a starring role in design and décor elements such as the ceremony backdrop, delicate frayed ribbons or the delectable cake. Where ever and however it is written, lovers of words will find the idea and art of writing a love letter as romantic wedding inspiration irresistible.
