Kitsch Meets Urban Las Vegas Elopement

Kitsch Meets Urban Las Vegas Elopement (37)

When Jorden and Greg decided to marry, they knew Las Vegas was the perfect place for them. They wanted a day with a glamorous grunge vibe, but with a touch of kitsch. Their ceremony was at The Little Vegas Chapel and they were married by (who else?) Elvis!

“We wanted the wedding to be kind of a glamorous and grunge”, said the bride. “I wore a long, sparkly dress but we took pictures in front of a motel, a liquor store, and even a dumpster! In fact one of my favourite photos from our wedding day is the one with a dumpster in the background. I thought it was awesome because it fit our style perfectly and was something I’d never seen before!”

Moody and Dark Australian Elopement

Mitch and Tash decided to elope and wanted their wedding to feel moody and a bit dark. So the bride wore black and they had their ceremony in a venue that looked like a gothic mansion!

“I always knew that if I was to get married I would be wearing black and it would be a little different to the norm”, said Tash. “We were inspired by bits and pieces of our lives that stood out. We love to check out Montsalvat every now and then. Its a European style artist’s colony established in the 1940s in Victoria, Australia. It is a very cool place, almost a little medieval and mysterious. We had originally planned to have the ceremony in a state forest but we were a little worried about the weather so it was really lucky that we were able to book the bluestone chapel at Montsalvat.”

This Australian couple eloped with just their parent’s there as they wanted to keep things small and intimate. “The ceremony was short and sweet. Mitch made our copper ceremony arch which was really cool. I walked down the aisle to Lovecats by The Cure. Eloping locally with just our immediate families there is not something that everyone does, although we have since had some of our friends tell us what a great idea it was and that they would love to do something along the same lines!”

Hipster Inspired Elopement Shoot

Melbourne Elopement Shoot-Maria Luise Bauer Photography-100

This stunning elopement shoot took place in Melbourne and was shot and organised by German photographer Maria Luise Bauer.

“We used a gown from Georgia Young“, she said. “I totally love her work and always wanted to shoot with her dresses so I sent her an email a few days before flying to Melbourne, asking if we could meet up and if I maybe could shoot a little inspiration with one of her gowns. And she said yes!”

“This shoot was very spontaneous. I wanted to do something hipster-ish, and to be inspired by an elopement in the city. I wanted it to see free and non-traditional. I put together the flowers myself and kept them basic. I wanted to show that if you’re having a low budget wedding you can just do things yourself.”

But not just any pink dress, the most gorgeous, unusual thing you’ve ever seen! This bride caused quite a stir when I sneak peeked a shot of her on Instagram and Facebook, with so many of you asking where her outfit was from and asking demanding to see more!

I am so excited to share Audri and Cody’s amazing Vegas elopement today. This one might just have become a contender for one of my all time favourite weddings too!

The couple were married at the Little White Wedding Chapel. “Our ceremony was short and sweet with a few of our close family members and friends”, said the bride. “We chose the drive thru option to be seated in there 60s pink Cadillac under the ‘tunnel of love’ that’s painted with baby cherubs hidden in clouds in a starry night sky scene!”

“We wanted our wedding to look unique, and to have a sort of dreamy feel to our photos. We just wanted to have fun and look back at our pictures with our son and that he’d think we were pretty cool! For the actual vibe of the wedding and our photos we got a LOT of ideas from another couple that was featured on Rock n Roll Bride – Ainsley and Sebastian! Their whole look was everything!”

Patrick and Nicolle didn’t want a big, fancy wedding. Instead they wanted to get married in a way that felt meaningful to them. They decided to elope, but to invite a few very close friends… although they didn’t tell them they were getting married until they arrived!

“We were married at sunset on a cliff overlooking Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains on the Puget Sound in Washington ,” said the bride. “It was beautiful! Ryan, the officiant, is one of my closest friends. When we asked him to get ordained and wed us, we only had one request – to start it like the clergy in the classic movie The Princess Bride. He did one better and performed the entire ceremony from the movie. He nailed it! We wrote our own vows and just had fun with it.”

Oded and Lena decided as soon as they got engaged that they didn’t want to get married at home in Tel Aviv, they wanted to go to New York City! “We wanted to avoid some of the bureaucracy entailed in official Israeli weddings”, they explained, “we also liked the romantic notion of getting away from everyone and having a wedding ceremony in NYC.”

They both wore non-traditional outfits which came from Cos. “We didn’t want the usual wedding clothes but still, it took a while to find them!” explained Lena. “In the end we both wore outfits from Cos – him a suit and me in a minimalist shirt dress and a flower crown.”
