How to create "Soft Focus" effect in Premiere

In making portrait style video, wedding highlights, or dream sequence, you can create a softening effect that will make dramatically soften skin tone and boost the highlight.
 
Original video
 

 
Adobe Premiere does not have a preset for such effect filter. However, we can create it by,
 
   Create a nested sequence of the final video
   Drag two copies of the same sequence to the timeline and stack them on Video 1 and Video 2 track.
   Mute or remove the audio portion from the second sequence
   Add a Gaussian Blur effect in the bottom track (Video 1)
   Add a layer key effect such as screen, luma, blend...(play with it till you like the result) to the top track (Video 2).
   Adjust a 50% blend key on the top track.
 
Here's the final video with the softening effect
 

 
PS: This same method can be used in Photoshop to create soft focus image
