In my early childhood years I had the unique privilege of spending a few years on a petite Caribbean island called Montserrat. One of the incredibly cool features to the islands were rich black sand beaches. Ever since then I have always had a sweet spot for these silky smooth oddities! When an Oregon elopement hit my inbox from wedding photographer Blush Creative Photography set on darker sand beaches, I knew I was hooked. The Oregon coastline is a thing of goddess like beauty and the locale of this styled shoot only served to hence the elegant moody affair. A simple sweetheart table with details like seaglass pieces and draped fabric picked up on the natural surroundings. Injecting a touch of color into the neutral surroundings, cool greens, baby blues & pale pinks accented the Oregon elopement. The last piece to the puzzle was a dove grey gown from Joanna August that joyfully danced in the wind. This vision of an Oregon elopement is simple perfection, as an elopement doesn't have to mean something light on style just because there are not a hoard of guests to see it.

Perhaps it's because I grew up in the steel city, surrounded by endless warehouse giants, or maybe it's because I've spent the last 16 years in the urban wiles of NYC... Whatever it is, I have a special place in my heart for gorgeous loft industrial weddings. There is just something about the cavernous yet wondrously airy blank slates that they offer. When coupled with just the right touch of imagination, these hidden locales can truly sing. Hoping to inject the same sense of industrial wedding wonder, a team of Ohio wedding pros headed to the event space at Rustbelt Coffee with the goal of transforming the event space into one of elegant design. Details like sleek black ghost chairs, custom-made marble calligraphy place cards, & wispy branch centerpieces standing tall against old school loft windows are just a few touches that dial up the elegance. To bring this beauty to life, Ohio wedding photographer Captured by Hannah Photography does an eloquent job of capturing each moment in all sorts of dark, moody, artful goodness. There is much to love here, I suspect you'll enjoy discovering each little hidden treasure!

The golden hour is such because of the perfection that is the sunshine toward the end of the day. Add in a gorgeous historical park, a cafe table for two and a tepee accented lounge and you have the makings for the most delicious of bohemian engagement sessions! Madalin & Harvey enlisted the help of North Carolina wedding Hanner Photography Studios to capture their session while the gals at event designer Greenhouse Picker Sisters did a tremendous job crafting their vintage boho world. Madalin & Harvey dialed in the modern vintage boho spirit perfectly, donning floppy hats and boots while Madalin wore an Altered State lace dress and Harvey, sweet suspenders! The duo easily laughed, cuddled and played in their bohemian engagement world set in a wash of earthy yellows, beige and clay brick reds. Their bohemian engagement session is quite the perfect way to kick off our impending summer don't you think?!
