Romantic And Whimsical Elopement Inspiration

Cristy Cross Photography

This romantic and whimsical elopement styled shoot was done in eastern New Mexico. The storyline goes a little like this: a bride and groom want to get married, just the two of them. Simple and intimate. In preparation for the wedding, the groom builds the ceremony wall, and the bride designs and sews her dress. They meet just before sunset and say "I do." How much cuter can it get?

With a color palette of gold, light pink and charcoal gray it can match almost any style of wedding, or elopement, you desire. It is no secret we adore gold so you can only imagine how much we swooned over the gorgeous golden cake and the little bits of gold tucked amongst the florals, all beautifully designed by Cristy Cross Photography.
