Emerald & Pink Elegance Styled Elopement
For this styled shoot, the team wanted to tell the story of a young couple eloping at an organic and romantic location, with the couple’s best friend (bridesmaid) in attendance as a witness. The shoot was located in Phoenix, Arizona at an old and abandoned trading post at the base of South Mountain. Once they decided on the theme, “Emerald and Pink Elegance”, the creatives had carte blanche to come up with their own concept as far as the florals, cake/desserts, styling, etc.
Cheeky Blooms used the queen of all flowers, light pink Peony, to take centre stage in the centrepiece and bridal bouquet. The Peony is accompanied by pink Carousal roses and blush Anemones to bring about the fresh, elegant beauty. Hot-pink Asters and red Gomphrena give the florals dimension and loud pops of colour. Smaller elements, such as the Spriggy Veronica and Waxflower, tie everything together with a sense of whimsy. The dominant and vibrant greens are all variations of pittosporum – a great base to represent the emerald in this elegant inspired elopement. Raeye’s Bakes made a gorgeous two-tiered wedding cake that was decorated with green and gold watercolour brushstrokes, as well as brownie mini bites topped with chocolate ganache drizzle, raspberries, and sprigs of mint – how yummy does that sound?!
No matter the size and budget, every elopement and wedding can be beautiful as long as the couple choose a location that is full of natural beauty. And oh yes, choosing the right photographer to document your special day is also very important!
