Elopements are here to stay in 2021, and possibly forever. Can we let you in on a little secret?! Listen in – we are kinda obsessed with the idea of keeping a marriage ceremony between you and your forever partner. There is something so romantic about loving your person so much that all you need for your wedding to be as special as it is, is for the two of you to be there. Today on the blog we are sharing this intimate indoor elopement inspiration for all the couples that have been considering flipping their plans to be catered towards an indoor elopement!
This styled shoot focused on mixing seasonal elements with the feeling of refined movement, which was showcased by playing with a multitude of textures and shapes, as well as the bride and groom’s love of dance.
We created an intimate celebration at a private residence in east grand rapids, Michigan. with 2020 bringing on a move to create intentional, smaller celebrations, we wanted to show that “smaller” doesn’t mean boring. We brought in bold, unexpected colors with the yellow and red tones in the floral and modern black pieces of the table setting to provide a fun “pop”.
Since our couple are dancers in their real life, we wanted to make sure that each piece of the day was inspired by movement and was refined, but still wild and organic. From the different textures of linen and torn paper to the stunning floral installations taking over space – everything felt intentionally placed, yet still free. This has been a tough year to plan a wedding, so collaborating and making something that inspired us was truly a gift. When our bride put on her leotard and pointe shoes, we turned up the music and she just started dancing – we all stood back in awe.
Additionally, we put a focus on working with BIPOC creatives and female-owned businesses – showcasing and compensating them for the work they bring to the wedding industry.
