Intimate Elopement Inspiration

Joel Bedford Photography-0075

Are you planning to elope? If so, I hope this gorgeous shoot might inspire you. “I really wanted to showcase a different way to do a wedding”, wrote wedding photographer and driving force behind this session, Joel Bedford. “I pictured this lovely couple driving out into the middle of nowhere to recite their vows. The idea seemed so romantic to me: a red vintage sports car, a ballerina skirt and a couple in love.”

“My good friend Jasmine owns a bridal boutique and happened to have a Monique Lhuillier skirt that fit perfectly into the theme. I paired it with the bandeau top for a twist of romance. I think it’s such a lovely thought to pair something so high end with something laying around in your closet. Effortless romance! The rest was just chemistry between Alex and Samantha… that’s something you can’t make up.

    OMG! For our elopement, I’ve been looking for a dress that is romantic and dramatic but low key, simple and non-wedding dressy. I thought I’d find it in an empire line dress but none that I’ve looked at seemed to work for me. THIS is me! I know exactly what I’m going to wear the day we drive off into the sunset to brave the ever after.
