Modern elopements are having their moment and they are going hard! Eloping used to be a spur of the moment run to city hall in whatever you could find in your closet...but not anymore! Oh no, now they are a full-on celebration. Kind of like a big wedding, but with a more laid-back vibe. This shoot is the perfect template if you are planning your own elopement. For the design, they used natural materials and kept the florals minimalist and pretty. The wedding ensembles really set the tone for an elopement as well. You can go full-on with a gown and tux if you so choose, or you can do like they did for this shoot and opt for something a little less formal that still screams wedding.
Hannah Vance designed this fresh and modern take on an elopement. When it comes to photographing an elopement, it's all about the couple and the way they are together, and Kristen Weaver did a wonderful job of capturing just that. The Revel Co. kept the florals understated but they still very much add to the entire feel of the event. The Balcony Orlando is a fun elopement venue because it offers a few different spaces all in one awesome location so that couples can get a variety of photos and maybe even squeeze in an outfit change. You can see more from this inspiration shoot in the full gallery. Read on to hear more from Photographer, Kristen Weaver.
ELOPING IN STYLE
This styled shoot took place at The Balcony in Orlando, FL. The vibe of the shoot was a city-inspired elopement. The Balcony was the perfect venue for this shoot because of its intimate space and rooftop views of downtown Orlando. This shoot had everything that a fun, low-key couple would be looking for in an elopement.
SWITCHING IT UP
For the reception, a table was set for their closest friends with an assortment of cake pops and chocolate-covered Oreos for dessert from Sweets By Britney. The idea was to provide a chill elopement space with a lounge from RW Style and a few unique floral arrangements created by The Revel Co. The bride started in a chic midi dress from The Bridal Finery, then switched into a fun and funky outfit before heading out to celebrate!
