Raising at dawn, our bride and groom sought the sun. For the perfect locale, they headed to the open heart that is Snow Canyon Park for a dreamy intimate Utah elopement. Simple and incredibly private, it is as if the entire world was made just for them. The connection to mother earth runs deep, as does the desire for chic stylish attire. A sophisticated wedding evolves in the form of wonderfully fitted fabrics and boho bridal headpieces. The rest to this Utah elopement is all about moments captured between the two young loves. A certain vibrancy rising with the sun from the dusty yellow floors, filling the sky like a wash of love particles. Not all weddings require an audience, and those that do not, certainly do not require that you comprise on style in the process.
Iceland is one of those magical wanderlust locales. A top travel destination, a sure bucket list item for most. So many photographers and creatives that I know actively seek out an Iceland adventure, its no surprise that Iceland elopements are all kinds of utter perfection. Didi and Nick have an adventurous spirit yet wanted a intimate day spent in a special world that felt like it was created just for them. Teaming up with wedding photographer Your Adventure Wedding, the trio were on the hunt for the most amazing of locations. Seeking out private off the beaten path areas for their Iceland elopement, the couple explored a stunning secret waterfall, offbeat canyons, and an incredible mountain vista locale. The result is an Iceland elopement that is storybook perfection, filled with lush green Iceland dreams!
If ever there was a love song to indie wedding seekers, this wonderful styled shoot from wedding photographer Caitlin Trickett Photography at the uniquely cool Dandy Roll print shop, just might be it. Dandy Roll, collects and sells antique prints and maps dating back to the early 1900's. The shop has a working printing press, and uses reclaimed barn wood to make gorgeous frames. Taking a cue from their eclectic vintage surroundings filled of prints and poetry books, the team imagined the bride as a poet who wondered into her own wedding. Bringing on the sense of a boho indie wedding, a sweet heart table was set near the large shop front windows, while the table was adorned with rustic nosh detailing, accented by shop prints of course! Much like a true indie bride would be, our poet dons a simple white dress from Anthro, perfectly paired with vintage brown shoes. There is a causal coolness to this indie wedding that is inescapable, the kind that no matter how hard you try, you simply can not replicate, it just is. The locale is incredible, the table divine and the style.... utter indie wedding perfection.
Of all the different styles one could put together when it comes to wedding design, a true favorite for me is rustic elegance. It is also, in my opinion, one that isn’t the easiest to pull off. As a rule, to craft a wedding like this, you need to start with an elegant wedding style as a foundation much the way TeamWedding, and The Bride Link have done. To then massage in rustic wedding décor, you need to understand the nuances that make it so, allowing that to guide your décor selections. Simply opting for a wood table isn’t quite enough. Choose the wrong one and it looks more ragged than sophisticated. French country style does an unbelievably gorgeous job of crafting rustic elegance. Polished, yet gently worn, natural and wholesome all while encompassing regal perfection, much the way the natural wood table and modern black plates from All Occasion Tent & Party Rentals do. Location is key, you can almost never have any sort of an elegant wedding without a venue that first exudes elegance, much like the one here at the incredible Candoro Marble Factory. Then there is the fashion, it’s pretty impossible to have an elegant wedding without stunning wedding attire choices that drip in style like the Gilded Gown and Regal Tuxedo showcased here. Driving this dreamy rustic elegant wedding home is the artful eye...
