Moon and Stars Almond Blossom Elopement

"This styled elopements initial inspiration came when we took a look at the white cherry blossom trees that bloom every spring and it reminded us of fluffy white clouds! We pictured an elopement that looked as if it were suspended in the sky itself with a beautiful moon as the backdrop. This unconventional combination of flowers mixed with astrology turned out to create such a romantic and etherial look to the entire photoshoot. We wanted to create a magical atmosphere where the entire focus could be solely on our couple. We were very blessed with some of the most talented vendors participating in this elopement. The Paper Moon Shoppe provided an absolutely amazing moon and clouds for the ceremony set up! Our florist created colorful and etherial flower arrangements that fit perfectly for the entire feel of our shoot as well. Our Videographer Johnathan created a stunning yet tear jerking video of this madly in love couple that we seriously can't stop watching over and over again. We had spot on planning and coordination from Rayanne Rose Weddings and Jazzed up Planning. Archive Rentals provided rentals for a perfect table scape set up that only dreams are made of. Gilded Swan Paperie provided invitations and vow books that had beautiful star and moon embellishments all over them. The Brides dress was rented from a rental company called Lael Collection. We saw the dress advertised online and immediately knew it would be the perfect fit for this elopement! Friars provided the powder blue and grey suite that complimented our entire color scheme perfectly. And I (Sam Rae Makeup + Photography) provided photography, makeup, and little bit of hair styling! I had a vision for the hair and makeup to be super soft and natural but also etherial and magical. I picked out the hair accessories and ear rings as well to add even more to her entire look. Our beautiful couple was recently married and they are no strangers to elopements! During COVID 19 they decided to have a small backyard wedding with some of their closer relatives in an intimate way. This styled shoot was a really beautiful moment for them as it created some more happy memories and gave them an opportunity to celebrate once again!"
