This styled backyard elopement not only looked like a fairytale, it felt like one too. From the initial planning phase until the end, everyone worked together effortlessly and everything came together even more beautiful than imagined.
The idea of a backyard styled elopement first came to mind in March when there was still snow covering the ground. I had never designed or planned a styled shoot before, but one of my favourite things to do is to see a project from beginning to end. I love to plan and having this creative project really filled my cup leading up to busy season.
If you haven’t noticed through my work, or visited my studio space, I am a bit of an bohemian enthusiast. I love this style for it’s texture, rich tones and mixed patterns. I especially love this trend for weddings and for bridal gowns (Keep scrolling to learn more about this stunning boho-glam gown by RISH Bridal).
To each and every individual who contributed to this project —You are AMAZING!! I am so happy our paths crossed and grateful for the connections and friendships made!
In this blog post I introduce all the individuals and vendors who brought this vision to life! Everything used for this styled shoot can either be purchased or rented - All links have been provided for you!
