With Valentine’s Day approaching on Sunday, there’s love in the air here at Weddings Illustrated (especially since one of our own staffers is in the midst of planning her wedding, and we’re all following closely along). And because we’re in the business of sharing all things inspired by love, we combed through our featured weddings to find our favorite and most romantic photos. In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are 14 snapshots from some of the sweetest weddings we’ve seen.
