wedding photoshoot // bohemian elopement inspiration // Earlier in July, I teamed up with some amazing people to create this gorgeous elopement inspiration shoot. The brains behind all of this was of course, Cassidy and Nina of Glitz Event Design Studio. By mixing bohemian glam, Moroccan decor and throwing in an amazing color palette, these girls designed SUCH a dreamy setting that any couple would be lucky to elope in. They styled everything so perfectly, and if you guys saw the venue we had to work with, you would be crazy impressed with how the heck these two tiny girls were able to haul every single piece of furniture and boxes full of decor all the way to this tiny little corner in the middle of nowhere. We all got a bit of a workout that day! (wedding planning is not as glamorous as it sounds)

The day could not have been possible without the help of other talented vendors. A few weeks before the shoot, I contacted Miss Tashina because I could not think of a better person to go to for a gown. She is QUEEN when it comes to wedding gowns, you guys. Please check out her website when you’re done reading this post because her work is to DIE for. Her style is so unique. If I could do it all over again I would have her make my wedding gown! Anyway, she created this GORGEOUS custom gown for our photo shoot and I freaked out when I saw it. I could not get enough of the lace bolero!

You might remember a photo shoot I did with Belle Faerie a while back. Well I was lucky enough to work with her again for this photo shoot. I know that floral crowns are all the rage right now and while I’m definitely not complaining, we thought it would be fun to try something a little different. Sara makes the most incredible headpieces and I knew she would do an amazing job with a bridal one. She also created a beautiful pearl handpiece. (both are for sale in her Etsy shop! -1- | -2- | )

Genevieve of La Fleur du Jour made the bouquet and centerpiece. Now, I’m almost clueless when it comes to flowers, but I know enough to be totally blown away when I saw what she made! The dahlias and garden roses (at least I think that’s what those are?) were my favorites.

The dreamcatchers were made by Kristen of The Easterdays and I’m pretty sure I took way too many pictures of them. MJB Cakes did the cake that we had way too much fun styling and was only rivaled by Jen Simpson’s gorgeous stationary as far as styling fun goes. All furniture rentals were provided by  The Tent Merchant and linens by La Tavola.

And last but certainly not least, hair was done by Chloe of TenDashOne and makeup by the one and only Makeup by Shannella.

Hopefully I have adequately expressed my admiration and appreciation for these vendors. I feel so lucky to be in an industry where I get to collaborate with so many talented, fun, and hard working people. And I really hope these photos show how much love went into this.

Enough gushing! Onto the photos….
