Publishing real weddings is my favourite. I love to read their stories, hear all about their celebration and swoon over their creative ideas! So, when I first found out this was a shoot, and not a real elopement, I was a tad disappointed. However it turns out that models Aida and Ismeal are a real couple, and the emotions you see in these INCREDIBLE pictures are 100% real… even if they didn’t officially get hitched. Good enough for me!
These photos, by the super talented French photographic duo Beatrice and Jeremie aka The Quirky, are out-of-this-world stunning. Of course we had to publish them!!
The shoot took part in Fort Bravo, a Western-styled theme park in the Almeria desert in the south of Spain. Built in the early 1970s is still retains that authentic, retro atmosphere. “We wanted to mix a rock style with a twist of Spanish spirit”, wrote Beatrice. “We wanted it to be alternative and modern but also warm. Fort Bravo is famous for its 70s western decor and is where a lot of movies were filmed. So, it was the perfect place to find an old school Spanish hacienda.”
Las Vegas elopements… We just can’t get enough! Sorry not sorry we’ve got another beauty heading your way today! But Makayla and Stephen’s day was just too cool to say no to so here we are! That bronze sequin dress… his colourful meets western shirt… the desert shots… Everything is just too damn GOOD! The couple met in Berkley, California. He was tour managing a band that she was a big fan of.
“I went to buy a record of theirs at the merch table and there stood my future husband in all his glory”, Makayla began. “I knew I had to see what this one was about, but only after five months of contemplation and rigorous encouragement from my friends did I finally reach out to him on social media.”
After getting ready together at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, they drove out to the desert with photographer Ashley Marie Myers in tow, for their intimate and emotional ceremony in front of a Joshua Tree.
Stop everything! You are going to just ADORE Morgan and Jesse’s California desert wedding and I am so excited to share it with you today! They were married at Rimrock Ranch in Pioneertown over the summer. They wanted their day to have a fun and joyful atmosphere and for it to be a little bit country (good music was a non-negotiable!) and a little bit weird! “We deemed the weekend ‘MJ Boogi Fest’, so it would feel like a weekend long celebration!” the bride said.
Morgan wore a Houghton NYCdress with adorable pink Iron Fist shoes and an incredible, yellow veil! She did her hair and make up herself because she wanted to feel like herself and she wanted them both to be quite minimal and non-fussy. Jesse was in a snazzy pink suit jacket from ASOS. “We didn’t have any decorations and I created silk bouquets for myself and bridesmaids. We wanted to let the desert shine on its own, so we kept things very minimal”, she said.
