A Whimsical Elopement Styled Shoot

Shanna Castro Photography and I have been "jonesing" to work together for a while now, so when a new year (and a new fresh + FREE) calendar finally arrived we decided to get to work! Luckily for us, my good friends Brittany and her husband Darko volunteered to be our models for the day, and we were ultimately inspired by their story. The couple eloped two years ago, and while they have gorgeous photos of this special event, they never had a "wedding moment".

Enter Kate and Shanna! (... and an amazing crew of talented vendors!) ...


We decided to keep it small and chic, focusing on the details. You know the little things.  The rich, mauve pink table cloth from Luxe Linen help set the tone for our romantic sweetheart table. While quirky / monochromatic tabletop pieces from Anthropologie brought it all together.



I was so lucky to be able to borrow the most gorgeous gown from my work "alma mater" Oscar de la Renta and holy heck did Brittany look radiant!


Also can we talk about this flower wall? O B S E S S E D ...


Also equally obsessed with this photo!

Darko look more than classic and very James Bond (his words, not mine!) in The Black Tux ...



Mobile Bridal Salon slayed the hair and makeup ... as always!
