The Bronson Canyon Caves served as a romantic and moody hideout for this relaxed elopement inspiration from All in Love Design and a team of must-have vendors in Hollywood. You almost wouldn’t believe this scenic desert location was in the middle of a bustling city, but it was the perfect spot for a laid-back bohemian vibe.
The s t u n n i n g Milo Gown by Sarah Seven is what bohemian brides should be wearing, especially with those dramatic winged earrings. Can we say #bridalgoals? The muted blooms are the perfect shades + texture for this desert romance, and we’re dying over the two tablescapes infused with dusty blush, gold, and black decor. Get ready to pin your heart out with this one! Read more about this shoot below, and find more images to enjoy in the gallery from Katelyn Kipfer.
Romantic, moody hideout in Hollywood
From All in Love Design: Hollywood is known as being a haven for creatives where anything is possible, including an everlasting love where two dreamers can take off in pursuit of their destiny. One would never expect this romantic, moody, hideout nestled right below Los Angeles' landmark Hollywood Sign. The Bronson Canyon Caves has played host to many iconic films and TV shows including Fantasy Island, "Little House on the Prairie," and of course the Bat Cave featured in Batman. For Sam and Olivia, the caves were the perfect blend of Romantic Hollywood and Laid Back Bohemian.
Laid-back California Vibe
Terri Yang of Love Note Events mastered the untamed dusky hues in her floral arrangements. Lovely Bride carries any bride's dream dress, including this boho dream Milo Gown by Sarah Seven. Party Pleasers was a one-stop shop for rentals. I loved how their marble chargers, paired with ink edged plates, pull in the viewer's eye. The overall look was completed by adding a dusty pink for a touch of color in the glassware and napkins. I wanted the laid-back California vibe in elopement celebration and thought what better way than a picnic centered in a stone circle formation.
The Rattan chairs for the sweetheart table, framed by the mouth of the cave, give the couple a feeling of mystified magnificence. Carole Lola curated the stunning, elemental, weathered, calligraphy suite that seemingly emerged from the dust surrounding it. Megan Iwanowski of The Book Cookie incorporated the environment into her cakes with cacti leaves and dried wild plantation. Katelyn Kipfer captured the day in a warm romantic memory through her lens, documenting the love between the Bride and Groom, and still managing to showcase the secluded, Los Angeles landscape from where the couple reigns.
escape into the desert landscape
Single Stone provided unique wedding bands that will hold up in a trendy society yet still stand the test of time. A canyon breeze carried Sandalwood, Cedar, and Vetiver from Maison Louis Marie's fragrance No.4. In the glow of the western sun, dusty sand, dark cool caves and dried desert life, you feel you've escaped into the wilderness. Yet a mile down the road lies Franklin Ave., set in the bustle of city life, where the couple met due to the respects of serendipity only "La-La Land" could promise.
