Styled Shoots

Whimsical Green & Gold Elopement

Historic Glen Echo Park, tucked away in the lush wooded area of Maryland, yet conveniently located to the busy D.C. area, invites you to take a peek into another time. Once an amusement park, it opened in the early 1900s and offers a variety of truly unique event spaces, such as the Spanish Ballroom and the charming bumper car pavilion. Notably, the park is home to an authentic Dentzel carousel, still operational today. This styled shoot team showcased the quiet corner of the park, those that are often overlooked amidst the main attractions. A small field near the Spanish ballroom provided the perfect lighting and greenery to tie this intimate elopement celebration together.

For the colour palette, the team leaned into the striking red and cream buildings, adding gold embellishments and softening with mauve accents and lush greenery. The elopement announcement and sign featured bold lettering and gold geometric borders. An antique ring completed the suite; its diamond halo and emerald cut stone making it truly unique.

The cascading bouquet added a note of whimsy through the delicate white anemones, rich greenery, and a pop of yellow mimosa flowers. The stunning two tier cake was a contemporary take on the art deco vibe, with mauve marbling and gold brush strokes. As befits an intimate elopement celebration, the sweetest table for two was set with a gauzy chiffon runner offset by a geometric centrepiece, gilded cream napkins, and the perfect touch of candle light.

The bride wore a subtle light gold dress inspired by the roaring 20s. To complete the look she adorned a flawless low chignon and her dark eyes were made up with  stunning natural look.

The elopement was intimate and peaceful, amidst the hustle and bustle of the city that is right outside the park’s doors.
