So this might not be a real wedding, in fact it was a photo shoot done in about 20 minutes before they lost the light, but I think you’ll agree it’s gorgeous enough to warrant a feature. In fact I may love these shots more than some of my own wedding photos – ha! Prepare to be INSPIRED.
Asura and Ivo, a real couple (because obviously, I mean you can’t really fake this kind of chemistry!) were asked by photographer, Jasmin, to model for her after she found them on Instagram. They’re both from Angola in Africa but they met and now live together in Tucson.
Lauren (from Fife in Scotland) and Matt met while Lauren was solo travelling in the USA in 2015 – they met in New York and bonded over music, live shows and wine on a Brooklyn brownstone rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline. They stayed in touch, talking everyday, after that and their love blossomed. He even sold his car to visit Scotland to meet her family and friends!
After doing long distance for a while. flying back and forth and having epic road trip adventures in both countries, Lauren was lucky enough to get a work visa and move to Philadelphia with her company for a year. In 2017, Matt proposed at the top of a mountain on one of their many road trips, and Lauren made the move to Brooklyn to be with him full time.
With their love of travel, it made perfect sense for them to elope – and get married at the top of another mountain – this time in Sedona, Arizona. They finished off with another road trip down the West Coast – catching places like Vegas, Bryce Canyon, LA and San Diego.
A bride in a blush pink tutu skirt, the Las Vegas desert as a photo backdrop and a budget of just €2000 – yes, that’s right, you are able to bear witness to one of the coolest weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of publishing!
“I met my future wife more than 3.5 years ago in a cold December, just before Christmas”, the groom began. “The idea was to pick a Christmas gift for myself so I’d decided to go to perfume boutique where she worked as a sale assistant at the time. It was one of those ‘love at the first sight’ kind of stories. She was the best Christmas present ever!”
Gintarė and Edvinas, who live in Lithuania, flew to Vegas in May to be married by Elvis at the Little Vegas Chapel. Following their quickie ceremony they did photos with their local photographer James Westray all over the city. The ended the night with burgers and beers at their hotel pool – now what can be better than that!?
